Safe in His Arms

Safe in His Arms by Renee Rose

$4.95 Amazon

For as long as she could remember, Becca dreamed of a dominant man to take her in hand, and Zac, the handsome Marine she met at her sister's wedding, filled the role with aplomb… for a weekend. Then the fling came to an end, Zac went off to war and died for his country, and Becca learned she carried a child who would be born without a father.

Seven years later, Becca has done her best to move on and forget about Zac… until the day she walks into her kitchen to find the man she believed she would never see again locked in mortal combat with her son’s nanny, and realizes everything she thought she knew about Zac was a lie.

Like all Black Ops agents, Zac doesn't exist in any government record. His life is a series of deadly missions, and relationships of any kind are unsanctioned. But he keeps one secret. He watches over Becca, the beautiful daughter of a rogue agent, and Parker, the six-year-old boy he fathered that fateful weekend. When he spots a known assassin in their apartment posing as a nanny, he's forced to reveal himself and take them to safety… whether Becca likes it or not.

While Becca may have enjoyed his dominance once, bending her to his will again may not be quite so easy. He is determined to keep her safe, however, and if a long, hard spanking is required, he is more than willing to oblige. Having Becca over his knee rekindles more than his passion, though; even when the immediate danger has passed, he finds it much more difficult to “ghost out” on his family again. Must he resign himself to protecting those he loves from afar, or can he find a way to be the man Becca needs and longs for, the man who is worthy of her submission and her love?

Publisher’s Note: Safe in His Arms is an erotic romance novel that includes both consensual and non-consensual spankings, anal play, graphic sexual scenes, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book was listed under Military Suspense. Ok, I get the military part from Zac. Fine. But I feel that the whole spanking thing completely overtook the suspense part. I'm down for a little kink, but when a so called suspense book is all about it, it ruins the story line. The spanking parts were basically all about that. Anything that happened between them was summed up so quickly, you couldn't even enjoy anything sexy about it. I would have liked to see the plot developed a little stronger. There was basically no work involved in taking down the bad guy and everything just fell into place. Oh, and not to mention the slight, paranormal factor of "ghosting" and "mind reading"? Where did that come from? I felt gipped. I was expecting a heart pounding suspense with some heat. Yea, there's a little heat, but the rest didn't do it at all. I definitely think it could have used some more thought or development. About the only character I really enjoyed, was Parker. He seemed like an adorable kid.
