My Best Friend's Stepfather #1 by Opal CarewI knew this story could launch my career, but I never thought it would lead me down a path of sin and decadence...bondage and submission. He was my subject; I became his slave.

Ashley's first lead feature as a reporter should have been simple: interview Darien Gallagher, a real life Dom, for a magazine article and launch her career as a leading journalist, but with Dare, nothing is ever simple... Mysterious, wealthy, sexy as sin, and completely off limits, Ashley knows she shouldn't crave his touch, his kiss, but she does. Even though he's her best friend's stepfather...

What started for Dare as a lesson in domination suddenly has become so much more. He knows Ash is younger, more sheltered, friends with his former stepdaughter, but he can't deny the spark between them, even though he knows it's wrong.

With every word, every lesson, Dare tests Ash's resolve and pushes her boundaries. While Adam, Ashley's boss, has her craving things she shouldn't. The assignment that was supposed to land her on the top is about to topple her to her knees.

     Ashley is now working for a magazine and her boss happens to be her brother’s best friend, Adam.  Adam doesn’t know it but Ashley has had a crush on him since she was a teenager.  When they met she was 16 and he was in his twenties.  What Ashley doesn’t know is that he too has had a crush on her but has worried about acting on it due to her being his best friend’s younger sister plus now he’s her boss.
     Each time Ashley has been with a guy it has slowly killed him.  They have become real good friends outside of work which he likes.  They even go running together.  What’s funny is they both want more.  They have work in common and he has been mentoring her along.  She has been looking for her big breakout story to make her finally stand out.
     So while running she says she has come up with a great special interest piece.  She wants to write about how popular BDSM in romance novels has gotten.  To discuss how it all really works in relationships.  Then she says she has set up an appointment with a real life DOM, Christian Grey, type.  Then man is wealthy, owns a corporation, and is into domination.
     What worried Adam is that it reminded him of someone from his past.  Someone he did not want to think about.  Not good!  She could see he wasn’t happy with it.  She tries to reassure him that it will be safe because her girlfriend, Jessica, set it up.  Yet, she was lying.  He knows Jessica would never do anything to hurt her or put her in harm’s way.  Jessica however didn’t know Mr. Gallagher very well at all.  She was afraid she would say too much and reveal Gallagher’s name.
     Adam had interned for Gallagher one summer when he was in college and whenever she’d asked him about it or Gallagher, a mystery that she wants to know about, but Adam avoided talking about it.  For that reason alone and for time to get her ducks in a row she won’t mention who the interview is with.
     Dare’s intentions seem to be on the up and up.  He only wants to mentor but through example yet honoring her words of “No Sexual Relations.”  So, after the second lesson he tells her to practice on the friend she told him she had been crushing on.  She does and Adam kisses her but then says…
     I hate cliffhangers and one whole book that is chopped into smaller ones drives me mad.  Enough said.
     Now this is an interesting story.  Here you have this title that makes the story more salacious than it actually is.  First Ashley is only 10 years younger than Dare, she has not even had a friendship with his stepdaughter in 6 years, and she doesn’t want to start a relationship with Adam while with Dare.  Interesting, Erotic for sure.  I give this 4 stars.  Provide by netgalley.  Follow us at:
