There are things in bassist Jace Seymour’s past that he is unwilling to share with anyone. To cover his guilt and anguish, he seeks dominatrix Mistress V (Aggie) to temporarily placate his inner turmoil.
Aggie doesn’t have much use for men–besides the power rush she gets when they’re begging for mercy at her feet–but Jace isn’t like her usual clients. His cool defiance and unexpected dominance in the bedroom drives her to distraction and quickly steals her heart.
When circumstances threaten Jace’s position in Sinners, Aggie must help him regain his rightful place in the band while showing him that time and love can heal all wounds.
Eeek! I love Jace sooo much! I think he’s toppled Trey as my favourite of the Sinners boys!
I mentioned in my review of Double Time that aside from Fifty Shades of Grey I was an erotic fiction newbie before I
came across discovered the Sinners on Tours series. Now they’re a series I just can’t get enough of. I’ve definitely been thrown in the deep end with the boys of Sinners and I LOVE IT!
Jace has had bad stuff happen to him in the past. Stuff he doesn’t want to remember or talk about. Forgetting about it, blocking it out with pain, is how he deals with it.
Aggie is a dominatrix. She’s someone who can help him in his quest to forget by feeling pain. She’s also someone who can make him feel more than pain, something he’s not used to, or ready for.
Jace just wants Aggie to do her job. Normally that’s all Aggie does do. She never feels anything for a client. Jace is different, very very different.
Can two people who’ve been so badly treated by others in the past come together to help each other heal, and maybe even learn to love?
Gah, I loved Hot Ticket. I actually squealed when Sourcebooks Casablanca approved me to read this (thank you, thank you!) because I was dying to know more about Jace. He’s the quiet one, the one in the background that we don’t know much about.
It was hard to read about his past, his pain, and how he only knew one way to overcome, and forget, all that had happened. He was so tortured and that was heartbreaking. He was full of loathing and self-doubt. Aggie was just what he needed, even if he didn’t know it. Hell, she didn’t even know it. They were both like lost people, getting by each day. When tensions flared in the band and Jace was out of action for a while things reached boiling point. It was Aggie who was there for Jace, doing more than just her job …
What happened between them was amazingly hot, but beautiful, too. They learned to open up, to trust, and to love. It wasn’t all plain sailing, how can it be when you have two people who are screwed up, especially one as screwed up as Jace.
The love was sweet at times, raw and painful at other times, but I always felt their connection and it never seemed forced or untrue. The sex was hot, long, kinky and dirty and I loved it!
