Rules are meant to be broken.

Carmen Dane was a self-assured Domme who always maintained control…until she submitted to sinfully sexy Master Thomas Regala. She gave him her trust and her vulnerability, and he betrayed her. She’s avoided him for months, but now he knows the truth and refuses to let her hide. Her all-consuming hunger for Thomas has only grown stronger during their time apart. But Carmen will never submit to him—or anyone—ever again.

Thomas isn’t about to give up that easily. Carmen is his Mistress and his submissive. He’ll do almost anything for a second chance—even if it means giving up some of his power for her pleasure. Now they’ve embarked on a game of desire and dark, greedy need that breaks both their rules. But can Thomas ever wholly submit to Carmen when he wants to claim her as his own?

Carmen and Thomas’s story started in the previous book, Rule Master. We got a sneak peek into their relationship where Carmen was hiding something big from Thomas. Two somethings actually, as in his twin sons. Rule Changer takes us a little over a year from the end of Rule Master. The cat is out of the bag and Thomas has come to collect is family.

Carmen and Thomas are both Dominates so their romantic relationship is not the norm in their world. With that issue to work out they are also dealing with the reasons Thomas broke things off with Carmen. They shared family business past that lead to his aunt killing her father. Carmen gave her trust to Thomas one night months ago and he took that trust and twisted it. She won’t allow herself to trust him or any man again.

Rule Changer is an erotic romance with a touch of suspense that has carried over the whole series. Carmen and Thomas work on their trust issues and how to be a family with their boys. As Thomas works on tearing down Carmen’s walls, he shows her that she can trust him and how much he wants her and their boys. They journey they take to their HEA is a sexy and touching one.

There was a side character near the end who I’m hoping Sienna Snow writes a book about. He didn’t much page time but I found him interesting and can see a story there for him as a stand alone or as a first book in a spin-off series. Fingers crossed!

Excerpt

 

I shut the door of my office and folded my arms across my chest. “Now that we’re alone, what do you want?”

He quirked a brow that made me think of things best left forgotten.

“What do you think I want to discuss besides the fact you scened with another man? The fact that you caressed him, kissed him, and made him come at your feet.”

I leaned against the desk, which housed housing  a wall of security monitors. “Who I scene with and what I do is not your concern.”

“The hell it isn’t.”

I jumped at his outburst but remained quiet.

“Tell me that you were aroused performing with that boy. Did you enjoy caressing him, kissing him, making him come? You may have everyone else watching fooled, but I know you. I know when you’re turned on, and you weren’t even remotely stirred. You enjoyed the high of control, nothing more.”

I clenched my jaw, trying to rein in the turmoil rolling around inside me. “What does it matter how my body reacted? You aren’t part of my life. You made sure of that. Besides…” I paused and closed my eyes for a second.

“Besides?” he probed, and stepped in front of me.

I stared him directly in the eyes. “Besides, I stated where I stood with you during your visit to my estate.”

He remained quiet, holding my gaze.

I stood up, forcing him to step back, cocked a hand on my hip, and tilted my chin slightly, giving him my stern Domme stance. “Let me ask you this one more time, and I expect an answer. Why are you in my club?”

His pupils dilated, and his golden- halo- rimmed hazel eyes clouded to a dark green.

I inhaled deep.

Please don’t look at me like that. My heart can’t take it.

“I came for the mother of my children and…”

I swallowed.

“My Mistress. My submissive.”

              I seem to time the reading of the Kindle version of books in the Bachelors of Arizona series with the release of the mass  market paperback.  I can’t remember exactly how I ended up reading the first one; I think I was trying to work with the publisher and they offered it to me. Anyway, it makes zero sense I am reading them. They use two tropes which are my least favorite (one is the billionaire guy). I won’t mention the second as it is too spoiling. BUT I love them! Each book is also a very loose fairy tale retelling. The Bachelor Auction was a Cinderella story. The Playboy Bachelor is sort of Beauty and the Beast. Rich, hot […]

  Want I liked about At His Mercy: Hot chemistry – I felt the chemistry between Tristan and Isabella and found their attraction very believable Kink – I liked the D/s elements of the BDSM romance wasn’t over the top. I think for this story and the characters the kink level was just right. No Virgins were hurt in the making of this book – I really loved the fact that Isabella wasn’t a virgin. I just knew during their first sex scene he was going to find out after he pushed into her that she was a virgin. But nope so YEAH FOR NO VIRGINS. She did her research – While Isabellas was not a virgin, she was a newbie to the BDSM lifestyle […]

    I write erotic suspense, so I love both sex and actions scenes. They both make the heart race a bit faster. Both spur the imagination. Both help to empower the women who read them. But in a competition between the two, Team Romp easily wins! Here’s why:   Erotic romance helps women escape from their everyday life roles to connect with their sexual selves. This aids in…  Sexual communication with their partners. Which leads to… Creativity in the bedroom. Plus, studies have shown that reading erotic romance will increase sexual desire and overall sexual function in women. In fact, women who read it have 74% more sex. And sex leads to orgasms… Orgasms reduce stress, relieve pain, improve memory, and BURNS CALORIES!   […]

Anne’s Audio Review I was so excited to get this audio, since I had also listened to Deadly Silence.  In between these two audios in the Blood Brothers series , I listened to the entire  Sin Brothers series which is related.  The Sin Brothers came first if you are OCD like me. Karen White narrated both series so I enjoyed the consistency. While the women have different personalities, most of them sounded the same to me. The men had a little more variation. These are professional,  comfortably paced audio books. The overall story arc continues and I’m happy we learn more in each installment. The Blood brothers were rather isolated in childhood, so they are learning more about themselves and their history all the time. This book also has […]

      I read the first book in the Opposites Attract series ,  Completely Yours which was 4.5 stars of smart, sexy fun. Of course, I wanted to read more. I was not disappointed. Maya is so strong, open and with a huge heart. She willingly risks everything to help others, do what is right or get what she wants. She is so brave. Alex is extremely smart and capable, but he has always played it safe. He has a lot happening in his life, can he risk himself enough to change and grow? I enjoyed these characters and they made me feel, care and cheer for them. They are more than average folks, which hits my reality meter. Some things work out for them a […]

    I loved getting introduced to Milla and Lex in the first book, Rule Breaker so I couldn’t wait to get their story. Their story was great! Since we get the start of Lex and Mills’s story in Rule Breaker there will be a mild SPOILER AHEAD. Lex and Mills have been secretly married for ten years. There has been a few people who knew of their relationship but only one person knew they were married. Why secretly? Milla has family issues, well really mommy issues. Her mother is a major bitch and because of some rules where the family business is considered Milla has to kept her marriage to Lex a secret in order to inherit her part of the business. This is a big issue they deal with […]

      Read It, Track It is a way  to track books for my reading challenges and they will be super short. Rule Breaker is my introduction to Sienna Snow and I have to say it wasn’t a bad first meeting. Snow writes great strong female characters and sexy male counterparts.  Rule Breaker is a romance built around two characters that get a second chance at love but must go through some heart ache and deadly events to get their HEA and boy did they earn it! While Rule Breaker focused on a D/s relationship it wasn’t too heavy into kink that readers who don’t normally read the genre would be turned off. Snow’s writing grabbed me and had me starting the second book, Rule […]
