When business brings him to New York City indefinitely, Gage Hollister is sure that somewhere in this massive city, there must be a woman whose need to be dominated matches his thirst to dominate. But as his search through the local BDSM clubs drags on, he begins to doubt whether such a woman exists. When he's asked to chaperone his best friend's younger sister, who's on her first solo trip as an adult, he welcomes the distraction.
Zoe Marshall has been in love with Gage forever, and has saved herself for him alone. Now, after careful planning and a bit of luck, she finally has the chance to show him she's all grown-up and ready to be his. Gage believes himself too old and jaded for an innocent like Zoe, but she is relentless in her innocent seduction, and soon his resistance crumbles. But as their love blooms, reality tackles their dreams. And in the aftermath, the choices they face will strain the bonds of friendship and family. Perhaps beyond repair.

Almost anything narrated by Christian Fox is an automatic download for me and if you buy this one, you'll understand why.
This book is about a love. It's an awakening for Gage and a fulfillment for Oops. Honestly, that's her nickname, being named that because she was born to her parents when they thought they were done with having babies.
Because this is an erotic romance, I don't want to say more, because we know what that adjective describes, however; this is one of the best written and narrated ones I've listened to. There is some BDSM, but it's not too difficult to listen to rating it on a scale of 1-10, I"d give it a 5. I'm not a fan on BDSM literature, but like I said, I couldn't pass up listening to a erotic book narrated by Christian Fox.
For those who choose to listen to erotica, then this one will be worth your credit or your money.

Pretty good addition to the series :)

3.5-4 stars

This was a pretty good story. I liked both Zoe and Gage and enjoyed their story. This was a good addition to the series.

Zoe is a 20 year old college student that is also the little sister of Brice (the hero from book #2 of the series Damaged Goods). She’s been in love with Brice’s best friend, Gage, since she was a kid. Unfortunately Gage has never shown any interest in her other than as a little sister. This was understandable since she was too young for Gage until recently and they haven’t seen each other in 3 years. Now however, Zoe has managed to set up a New York visit where she’ll be staying in Gage’s guest room and she’s determined to get Gage to notice her as a woman.

Gage is a Dom that’s in New York for a while on family business. He’s satisfied with his life but he’s looking for someone special, a sub that will be his full time slave that he can do whatever he likes with. He’s spent time in a local club but none of the subs he’s had up to now have fit what he wants. When he goes to the airport to pick up his best friend’s little sister (a girl he’s always seen as a sister type) Gage is in for a shock when instead of the girl he knew he instead finds a beautiful woman that turns him on greatly.

When Gage picks up Zoe he has a hard time keeping his hands off of her. Zoe doesn't make it easy for her as she goes all out to show him just how adult she is now. The first few days Zoe takes things slowly, tempting Gage but not pushing things or being obvious. Soon however, things escalate and she makes a move that makes her intent obvious. She admits he long time love for him and how she’s saved herself for him and no one else. Her 21st birthday is in a week and she admits that she wants him to take her virginity on her birthday. Gage is freaked out and refuses which propels them in to a major argument. During this argument Gage tells Zoe that he’s not "vanilla" and he won’t treat her like the other women he’s been with. She doesn't understand at first but once she realizes his desires she has to do some reevaluating but soon realizes that the BDSM that Gage is in to actually fits in with her desires and fantasies. Zoe has to use to scheming to get Gage to break his commitment not to touch her and she manages to tempt Gage in to it while making him realize that she’s interested and turned on by the thought of exploring BDSM with him.

They start a relationship and there’s physical involved but it’s not only physical. Gage fights his need for Zoe but he realizes that they work together and he wants her a lot. They spend the week before her birthday with Gage and Zoe starting to explore BDSM. Gage does some exploration with Zoe, showing her the BDSM lifestyle and seeing what she’s comfortable with and what she’s not. They also explore a relationship and the feelings between them grow stronger the longer they’re together. Eventually Gage accepts his feelings for her and that they’re meant to be together. She has a wonderful birthday which goes great between them. Afterward things continue to progress between them but there’s a dark cloud that falls over them when Brice finds out. Brice over reacts big time and causes drama, causing both Zoe and Gage some major stress. Things are difficult for a while but Gage and Zoe aren't willing to be separated and eventually things get worked out. Gage and Zoe hold out for what they want and they get a nice HEA.

This was a pretty good story. Overall the relationship between Zoe and Gage was very good. Brice’s major over reaction was the main drama and I felt it was a bit over the top. I mean I know Zoe’s his little sister but it still seems a bit much. Still it gave some drama to keep the emotions high and kept things interesting. I’d recommend this book. Thumbs up. :)
