Kelli is looking for this one! Two books immediately came to mind (I discuss why, below) but I know they’re not the ones, so I’m dying to find out too!
I’ve come across your blog while trying to hunt down a book I read a few years ago.
I cannot for the life of me recall the name or even the author, but it’s out of a distinct genre and a dark read, so, I’m hoping you’ve read it and it rings a bell. I really need to read this book again!
Anyways, it’s about a girl who stumbles up on a crime being committed and she’s found out by the men committing it (a murder if I remember right, and she’s hid beside dumpsters). So, they take her, and she ends up in this beautiful home that is also a S&M private club of some sort. The man who keeps her, kind of deprives her from affection until she’s all but starved of it and begs for communication.
As it turns out, she takes a liking for this lifestyle.
The male MC happens to be an undercover agent, and their relationship peaks. He discovers that he likes being her master and is very conflicted by that.
That’s about all I can remember. I really hope you’ve read this and it sounds alarms in your head!
P.S. Newly added information that Kelli remembers:
“I remember that her keeper (the undercover cop) becomes really guilt ridden the closer it comes time for a raid by his agency. At the end of the book, and I hate to leave a spoiler, but
the two of them are in a restaurant together and they’re still very much a master slave duo. It had to have been published before 2017 “
Okay, so immediately a DARK kidnap book (Mafia Captive by Kitty Thomas) that I devoured. It wasn’t as dark as her usual ones, but IS dark – she WAS taken and held hostage when she saw the crime around the dumpsters. BUT I know that’s not it, because it’s a Mafia family and one of the members claims her as his. No BDSM club that I can remember? (P.S. Here’s my review)
Also makes me think of “Crow’s Row” (she stumbles upon a crime and they take her – SOOOO GOOD – we went wild for that one back in our original indie days), but again, no BDSM club. (P.S. Here’s my review)
So I’m dying to know too!! 😀 I love cop heroes and I love reading about when two discover (and explore) a D/s connection that they’ve never experienced before.
Anyone know it?
Millie: Hummm interesting, the really beginning makes me think of “Nero (Made Men Book 1)” by Sarah Brianne (the heroine hides behind a dumpster and then the son of the Mafia boss takes an interest in her, it’s a bully romance book) and then the undercover cop / master makes me think of “Owned)” by M. Never
Kelly: Hi! I appreciate so much you trying to help me out but unfortunately, I’ve looked in to all the guesses and none of those are it. I remember that her keeper (the undercover cop) becomes really guilt ridden the closer it comes time for a raid by his agency. …It had to have been published before 2017
Jenn: Irrevocable (Sins of Ashville Book 1) by Skye Callaghan???
Kelli: I found it! And it is Broken by W. Winters. SUCH a fantastic read and what’s even better is now that I’ve rediscovered this book, I’ve also found this authors other fabulous works.
