Soul Rest by Joey W. Hill
The most beautifully written D/s resides in this book. I always come back to the Knights of the Boardroom series when I need a hot Master fix. And now I've added Leland Keller to my KotB fantasy bank. He is everything I want in a Master, and Celeste embodies all my insecurities (though for different reasons), which makes this story so very relatable for me (and hopefully for other readers as well). The story is masterfully crafted, characters are brought to life, and all their pain and joy comes off the page and right into the reader's gut and heart. Or at least that's how it was for me. I savored this book, took my time. I couldn't bear for it to end. I'll be adding this MUST READ to my re-read shelf. ~Lina [March 2015]
Knights of the Boardroom Series Reading Order
Celeste has worked hard to establish her freelance blog as a source of accurate crime news for the Baton Rouge area. Being a workaholic, focusing solely on her career, was her choice. Five years ago, she had a life-changing experience in a BDSM club that made it clear she is a submissive, but she believes her past makes embracing that path impossible. Then Sergeant Leland Keller walks into her life. He’s the Dom she’s always feared and hoped she’d meet, and he recognizes her as what he’s been looking for as well. But she fights submission as much as she longs for it.
Leland always thought he was looking for a docile, sweet-natured sub, but the heart wants what it wants. He can tell Celeste is aching for love and surrender. Having served in the military and now as a patrol sergeant in one of Baton Rouge’s most dangerous districts, he doesn’t shy from a challenge.
His job is to protect and serve. He’s not going to let her down.
