Pretty dreadful plot.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

People that don't think very much.


Has The Dom Who Loved Me put you off other books in this genre?

No.


Which scene did you most enjoy?

The cropping scene was quite good, even if I didn't like the plot points around it.


You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Yes, the book had moments and hence why I didn't give it one star, but they were few and far between in my opinion.


Any additional comments?

The major problems with this book is that the author was not smart enough to pull off the plot she imagined. You have a group of ex-special forces guys working for the CIA chasing down a supposed terrorist group. This would be ok except for the fact the CIA has no legal ground for operating on US soil. Add in that the brother of the person they are chasing is known to them, the person they are chasing they see on numerous occasions and yet for some reason they all focus on a PA instead. This made ZERO sense, as they knew who the bad guys were, but did nothing to capture them when they could have with ease. They didn't even bug the brothers office or home, but do so to hers. This again makes no sense other than to provide a reason for a romance story. I guess realism be darned.

Also, this book shows the flaws of a woman writing about men with no idea of them clearly. The men in the book all fighting over a woman unprofessionally, or punching each other at random times for very little reason. I just don't believe in it.

Then there was the spy craft in the book. It's the modern age, but at the end when they were staking out a party they have to run to and from a room a floor below to report to the guy running the operation. These are supposed to be special operation trained guys and the CIA and yet they don't even have communications tech to talk to each other?

The final straw is the relationship between the two main characters. A DS relationship is largely built on trust and honesty. In this it could not be further from that. At one point the male MC actually says, "Tell me how I lied other than my name and what I do for a living." Add in investigating her and sleeping with her under a heap of lies and I didn't believe in her responses to this at all.

Also, the male MC reads her like a book when they first meet, and again towards the end. He can tell every time she lies and knows every emotion she is feeling. Then in the middle he suddenly can't at all when it matters. It just boggles the mind the inconsistency. All in all I just found myself irritated with the plot and the characters.

LOVED IT WITH HEA

What a beautiful love story, yes some might say deception whilst others will see it how it began
Sean Tagget & his old military men working undercover for the CIA Then when he meets pa Grace Hawthorne who they're investigating as well as her boss for selling information to other countries.
But he can't help himself he has to have her, he's falling for her, especially the tell tale lines of the submissive she is. & when she falls for his talk & charisma she had to have him, but she's terrified as she hadn't been with anyone since (or before) her husband died 6 yrs prior & she's never done any of the ways Sean takes her to but what she had dreamed about.
Then Team Leader (who is His brother Ian) takes him off being her personal trailer. As he jeopardised the situation what with sleeping with her & his team mates can see he's falling for her, so he wouldn't be able to do his job unprofessionally what with his feelings being so much deeper​. Then they had to pull her in before they can finish off their investigation.
Sean didn't then have the time to let her know the truth about the feelings he's getting. Then Would She believe the truth about his feelings after she finds out he & the others she started to become close to, were investigating her & she was.one of the.main people they were investigating. Though he didn't really think she had anything to do with it & he then WAS TOO scared to tell her the truth.
So will everything turn out the way you'd want it you....
