A discharged Army Ranger, Ben considers his job as a BDSM club security guard to be an excellent hobby. He’s never been tempted to join in. But everything changes when the notorious Mistress Anne inadvertently reveals the caring heart concealed beneath her Domme armor.Thoughts on Servicing the Target: I genuinely love Cherise Sinclair's characters. Whether they're Doms or subs, they're strong and sweet and they make the wrong choices sometimes and they feel so real. SO REAL.
Now, he’s set his sights on the beautiful Shadowlands Mistress. Maybe he’d considered himself vanilla, but she can put her stiletto on his chest any day, any time. He’ll trust her delicate hands to hold his heart. And if she wants to whip his ass on the way to an outstanding climax, he’s just fine with that too.
Sure, he knows she likes “pretty boy” slaves. And he’s older. Craggy and rough. And six-five. Minor hindrances. The mission is a go.
It thrills me how perfectly she makes the strong, dominant characters come to realize they're not only NOT infallible, they don't have to be. They have people they can turn to. They have people who will have their back. Likewise, the subs aren't doormats, they're strong in their own right.
Ben and Anne are the perfect example of this. Anne is known for being a strong Domme with a taste for pretty boys. Ben claims he's vanilla, but for Anne he'll give the lifestyle a chance. On the surface, they don't seem like they'd be a good match, but they work so perfectly together. Watching Ben wage his campaign against Anne's heart was awesome. And, yes, there were some stumbles along the way, but things worked out in the end.
All these characters make me smile and I'm looking forward to seeing what's coming up for them in the future.
