Maya Banks--Sweet Persuasion (Sweet#2)


For five years, Serena has run Fantasy Incorporated and has devoted her time to fulfilling her clients' fantasies. Never her own. Until now...

Her most secret desire is to give ownership of her body to a man. Someone who will command her, pleasure her, and have complete authority over her. So she seeks out Damon Roche, owner of an exclusive sex club and a man strong enough to make her do anything he wants. Anything.

Together they'll journey into a world she's only dreamed of. She's given the opportunity to immerse herself in a different life while her normal one waits for her to return whenever she wishes. Damon has no desire to let her go, however. Serena is the woman he's long searched for, and it's up to him to convince her to stay when the game is all over with. He wants their fantasy to become their reality and for Serena to remain his pampered, cherished submissive.

{3.5 stars}
A liked this one much better than the first, the overall storyline and flow of the book made more sense to me. Serena is a strong character, equal to the strong character of Damon. I didn't think I would like Damon, but as much as he seems in control of everything around him, he is just as vulnerable as the rest of us. They start out planning and playing out Serena's fantasy, but along the way they both realize that they really just want reality with each other. Serena runs, not knowing what is real or fantasy and is unsure of what Damon really wants. But leave it to her best friends to help her realize what is best for her. I couldn't give this book 4 or 5 stars, because I just don't enjoy reading about pain for punishment. I know it was part of their storyline, and it was written with as much class as possible, and that it is truly part of the whole BDSM world, but there were a couple of parts that were a little hard for even me. But at the core of this book is Damon and Serena, and it was a great romance.....
