Command Force Alpha, Book 1
When a mission against the Russian mafia goes south, Colonel Stafford, head of a deep-cover ops team, wrests a hospital-bed promise from his protégé. Although eager to return to the field, Evan Sommers swears to keep the colonel’s daughter, Katsu, safe from retaliation.
The task isn’t simple for the battle-tested Marine Corps captain. Four years have passed since his secret affair with sweet, compliant Katsu. Now she’s a streetwise pool shark who refuses to obey any command.
Kat resists the need for Evan’s protective shadow, until deadly threats expose her vulnerability. Her future depends on this hardened soldier, and their sizzling dynamic reveals what Kat’s bland college dating life lacked—a man with the will and desire to tame her.
Danger creates potent, unexpected scenarios that test their sexual limits, yet a real relationship is impossible. Evan is the warrior who could be her Master, but how can she fully submit? The next mission—even the next knock on the door—could rob Kat of the man she loves.
This book took me a time to really get into, but once the story started to unfold i did enjoy it. I think now that the ground has been laid as to what Command Force Alpha is the next books may be easier to follow.
Own is a erotic military romance, and has some great intense emotion coupled with some fast paced action to keep you on your toes.
Add in that Evan has a need to dominate and Katsu has the opposite need to submit, you have an interesting twist to the story.
Evan and Katsu have this intense, angsty kind of relationship that will keep you enthralled. There is the white hot sexual need that they have together, but then there is this beautiful D/s aspect to the relationship that i found to be very well written. The BDSM element was light in this book, the focus was more on the D/s. Evan has this need to be dominant in most aspects of his life and Katsu fills that need perfectly with her need to be controlled.
I have read books with a similar military thread such as Cristin Harber’s Titan series, which is fantastic. So i am hoping that this series will hook me in to it more in the next book.
