Safe in his Arms, By Renee Rose

For as long as she could remember, Becca dreamed of a dominant man to take her in hand, and Zac, the handsome Marine she met at her sister's wedding, filled the role with aplomb… for a weekend. Then the fling came to an end, Zac went off to war and died for his country, and Becca learned she carried a child who would be born without a father.

Seven years later, Becca has done her best to move on and forget about Zac… until the day she walks into her kitchen to find the man she believed she would never see again locked in mortal combat with her son’s nanny, and realizes everything she thought she knew about Zac was a lie.

Like all Black Ops agents, Zac doesn't exist in any government record. His life is a series of deadly missions, and relationships of any kind are unsanctioned. But he keeps one secret. He watches over Becca, the beautiful daughter of a rogue agent, and Parker, the six-year-old boy he fathered that fateful weekend. When he spots a known assassin in their apartment posing as a nanny, he's forced to reveal himself and take them to safety… whether Becca likes it or not.

While Becca may have enjoyed his dominance once, bending her to his will again may not be quite so easy. He is determined to keep her safe, however, and if a long, hard spanking is required, he is more than willing to oblige. Having Becca over his knee rekindles more than his passion, though; even when the immediate danger has passed, he finds it much more difficult to “ghost out” on his family again. Must he resign himself to protecting those he loves from afar, or can he find a way to be the man Becca needs and longs for, the man who is worthy of her submission and her love?

Publisher’s Note: Safe in His Arms is an erotic romance novel that includes both consensual and non-consensual spankings, anal play, graphic sexual scenes, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

A romance story, that has that BDSM twist on the side, is something that isn't that common right now. While I do enjoy some of the bdsm books out there now, I'm glad when I read one that isn't completely about that aspect of the couple's relationship. I enjoy the books where there is an actual 'storyline' to the book instead of just sex constantly. (Don't get me wrong I enjoy the sex books as well, but sometimes I just want more.)

With this story, there was a great story line that went along with everything else happening in the book. There was just the right balance between the bdsm and the relationship that was happening between Becca and Zac. Even with all the drama that was taking place in the book, you could still tell the feelings between them.

I think with his book I enjoyed Zac's character more than Becca. There was something about him that just made me smile whenever he was talking in the book. It could be because of everything that was going on, and he was still trying that shows what kind of man he was. Even when it came to risking his career, he was willing to do anything to keep Becca, and their son, safe.

All in all, I completely enjoyed this book to the point where halfway through it, I ended up calling a friend and demanding that she get this book! If you enjoy a romance with a side of BDSM this is the book for you!
