STILL (LONG SLOW TEASE #1)                                 ANN MAYBURN

Dr. Michelle Sapphire and Gunnery Sergeant Wyatt Callahan formed an unbreakable bond and an unacknowledged, forbidden attraction to each other while serving together in Afghanistan. Their lives are forever changed when a mortar attack grievously wounds Wyatt and Michelle brings him back from the brink of death. But when they both return to the civilian world, Michelle discovers that her rock-solid Marine is suffering from severe PTSD and may even be suicidal.

Wyatt Callahan fell hard for the aristocratic blonde doctor the moment he laid eyes on her. After reentering civilian life in his hometown near Austin, Texas, Wyatt is plagued by nightmares of the death and suffering he witnessed during the war. He’d love to reach out to Michelle, but — Michelle is a Dominatrix, and she has made it very clear to Wyatt she isn’t interested in a relationship with anyone who doesn’t accept her lifestyle. An Alpha male to the core, he can't imagine the appeal of being submissive. At the same time, the idea of serving Michelle, of being everything she wants and needs, rings true in his wounded soul.

Michelle has dark secrets of her own, and together with Wyatt she will have to battle her personal demons during their emotional journey of healing, redemption, and love.

This is a very intense story and from the start I am going to say there a mature sex scenes in this story. It begins with Gunnery SGT. Wyatt Callahan dealing with a severe case of PTSD. He also cannot get the doctor that they were protecting out of his mind. She is beautiful and he is wondering where she is. He cannot sleep and is drinking way too much, so in the middle of the night she receives a phone call from a sheriff about Wyatt and he had her card with her number on it and she told him it had to be an emergency to call her. He was making that call. Actually it was he brother in law the sheriff who was calling, but when she saw him it was not the Marine she came to know and actually rely on. Dr. Michelle Sapphire as they start to talk he is asking for help and as much as she wants to say yes, she is wanting to say no. you get a look at their relationship from the first time they met in Afghanistan and how they came to rely on one another, and how he was there for her just to cry when they were back at camp. They began to share stories and a bond formed, but she did not or could not take it anywhere then the attack and her fighting to keep him alive until help came. Now he is with her again but she wants him to leave, but he won’t. He wants her help but he also wants her. The problem she is a Dominatrix, and as he is wrapping his head around that she is explaining to him that any man that is with her has to be her submissive. He does have a problem at first but there is another couple living on her ranch and the man explains more to him. Also he begins to sleep at night and enjoys her company. This is not done in a way to be mean and as you go along in the story she is dealing with her own loss, but not dealing with it. He is starting to figure this out and begins to think that he can help her as much as she can help him. This is a very moving story a lot of emotion and it ends leaving you with another part of their story for the next book. That is my only problem is continuation books. Other than that a good book with good characters. I got this book from netgalley. I gave it 4 stars. Follow us at
