IT specialist Cora Benning has figured out the key to her formerly disastrous love life—make it virtual. In the online world of Hayven, she’s free of her geek girl image and can indulge her most private fantasies with a sexy, mysterious master without anyone in her life discovering her secrets. Until her information is hacked and she finds herself working to fix the breach under two very powerful men—one who seems all too familiar...
Best friends and business partners Ren Muroya and Hayes Fox were once revered dominants. Then Hayes was wrongfully sent to prison and everything changed. Ren wants to get back to who they were. Hayes can’t risk it. But when they discover the new IT specialist is their online fascination, and that she’s never felt a dominant’s touch, the temptation to turn virtual into reality becomes all too great.
I have spent the last several days trying to come up with a way of describing this book. Its kept me from being able to write a decent review and honestly I'm still not totally sure where I land with it. I mean I didn't really care about the whodunnit aspect of the story because this was such a character driven story.
Warning this is a trio 3-way m/m/f relationship romance so if you aren't into that kind of thing this may not be the book for you. There is a lot of heavy angsty broken hero story brought in for the m/m romance end of the story and the complication of adding Cora in to the whole relationship which is further complicated because she's into the BDSM fetish which really doesn't have much grounds in this book despite the fact both R and H were world renown Doms (having controlling over masculine / dominant men with some play in bed does not equal real BDSM) that being said the sex is still hot so add some extra kinkiness and you got a good chaser to go with your shot of bourbon.
Cora wants a man who can take charge and gets two for the price of one.
There is a lot of that trying to take on reality verses fantasy which Cora has spent a lot of her time doing and gets caught up in when she begins her relationship with Ren and Hayes.
There is a lot I felt was a little bit off and others I didn't think got enough development but I personally had to set aside most of the extra scenes and focus solely on the sex instead simply because that's mostly the basis for this relationship when it boils down to the end.
