Genre: Erotic Contemporary Romance 18+
In Lea Griffith’s Loveswept debut, a novel that’s perfect for erotic romance readers, two lovers who have shared exquisite pain and unforgettable bliss find solace back in each other’s arms.
Jeremiah Copeland and Daly Edwards have a history. Even though he grew up a criminal struggling to care for two younger siblings, and she’s the pampered daughter of a power-hungry senator, they formed a bond that nothing could break. Only a lack of trust ripped them apart.
Seven years later, Daly has reason to believe that Jeremiah’s brother is in trouble. She reaches out to Jeremiah the only way she knows how: at his BDSM club, The Underground. But one look ignites a heat she thought had cooled forever. As Jeremiah takes control of her body once again, Daly quickly loses control of her carefully rebuilt world. Too much has never been enough between them, and as danger swirls in the shadows, Jeremiah forces Daly to recognize what has never changed: She still loves him. His command is that she return her heart—and he will make her obey.
Lea Griffith began sneaking her mother’s romance novels at a very young age, cutting her teeth on the greats: McNaught, Woodiwiss, Garwood. As she got older, her need to devour all genres of romance–including contemporary, paranormal, and sci-fi—grew. Now, when she’s not working her day job, you can usually find her at her keyboard, using every spare second to write. She lives with her husband and three teenage daughters in rural Georgia.

"You can't see my soul but it's wrapped around yours. You carried it with you when you left." - Jeremiah
"Fair enough. Because when I earn those pieces, it means I will have all of you."
He had dominated her, but in the end it was always Copeland who was dominated by her submission.
Day got sent Jeremiah's brother's ring at her doorstep so she knew she had to get the ring to Jeremiah. They hadn't seen each other in three years because they had bad communication and trust issues, so when they get thrown together this way all hell breaks loose for them as their emotions go haywire. They had deep feelings for each other before and that didn't change in the three years they were apart. They have both changed and are not the same people they were before and sometimes they learned from their past mistakes and sometimes they didn't.
I loved Jeremiah and Day's relationship when it was good. He was her Dom and she couldn't help but submit to him no matter how hard she tried. There were so many hot scenes and the sex was a major part of this book. I enjoyed it but I didn't feel like they communicated much, Jeremiah would disappear for days without a word, he'd come back and couldn't say what was going on. I don't feel like there was a big climax in the story, no pun intended lol. The problem with the ring got resolved and that's it.
I did enjoy the ending, it was so cute and unexpected. I felt like their love could withstand anything. I love the dom/sub setting, I don't read that very often, there are so many variations of that world and I've read so little of it that it's always intriguing to me.
This story was written in dual POVs and I love that, knowing what's going on from both sides. I enjoyed it and recommend it, you're in for a sexy and steamy read.
