#Throwback: Dangerous Submission

 British Agent Drake Steele never thought when he was hired on at the Serious Organised Crime Agency that his job would involve spanking a co-worker. But when the colleague is Lord Robbie Covington, the sexy red-headed computer hacker for SOCA and MI-6, Drake can't agree fast enough to pop Robbie's cherry and pull him into the sensual world of BDSM.

Now they are caught up in a web of lies as they pose as members of the jet-setting crowd. Drake and Robbie have to race against the clock to stop a weapons haul that could threaten the safety of all Europe. As their covers begin to fade and danger is closing in, protecting Robbie is Drake’s most important task, but neither man is ready for the moment when their hearts are put on the line.
This is book two of the Dangerous Affairs series, but can be read as stand alone.

This is about Drake, an SOCA agent from Birmingham that has been brought down to the London office to help with a case that involves going to Poland and the BDSM scenes. Robbie is also a SOCA agent, but deals more with the computer side but has been picked to partner Drake for this mission. Drake is not happy with is for several reasons one of which is Robbie has never been inside the BDSM world. Will Robbie’s naiveté be the downfall or exactly what they both need?

I have to say I have a love/hate with Robbie; I really do not like the pushy, whiny, I want, I’m right characters that Robbie portrayed through most of this book. However, he redeemed himself at the end. Also unlike the previous book, this one was mostly about the BDSM scenes, developing the D/s relationship with Drake and Robbie within that world and hanging out in Prague. Not actually the mission. Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed that, but I would have enjoyed more undercover work or intrigue and less ‘networking’ inside the BDSM club.   And once again, I liked the fact that at the end we get an ending that makes since. After all Robbie lives in London and Drake doesn’t. It takes time to make that sort of real life to have an HEA.
