What if the fantasy never had to stop? 

It's been a year since Dean Sova turned Maya Clery's world inside out. There isn't a secret fantasy that Maya and Dean haven't explored—each one more tantalizing and mind-blowing than the last. But while their relationship may be stronger than ever, taking the next step pushes boundaries neither one of them is prepared to face. 

Dean couldn't care less about Maya's background—all her choices made her the woman he wants to tie to his bed and never let go. But not even a Dom as strong as Dean can keep the past at bay. When a threat from Maya's old life surfaces, she'll have to choose once and for all: fight for freedom under Dean's command, or lose the reward she's worked so hard for—the chance to be happy with the man she loves.

My Rating: 

My Thoughts:
I just can't express how much I loved this trilogy from start to finish! This trilogy kept me on my toes, made me laugh, caused a few tears to fall and really made me completely happy. Jade A. Waters did a phenomenal job with writing this trilogy. I'm so sad that it's over, I hope for a surprise novella down the line.

I will say that this had EVERYTHING I was hoping for. Romance, hot steamy sex, drama and a happy ending. Ever since reading the sequel to this trilogy I was ready for these two, Dean and Maya, to have a happy ending and I got that and more.

Maya and Dean have grown so much in their relationship and in this third novel they have finally made some big steps. I was so proud of them taking the next steps and really talking things through. They definitely have matured and grew from all the hurt they experienced in their pasts.

The reappearance of Charlie was absolutely insane! I was scared of him for Maya. I wish Dean could have at least got in a good thirty or so hits on him -- I'm just saying. I loved Selby and Alex of course...they are just too damn cute. Maya's brother was a bit of a douche, but I could understand his reasoning to an extent.

Overall, this was just phenomenal. I highly recommend this to any one looking for a good, light-hearted BDSM trilogy to get into.
