Heavenly Young doesn’t have time for romance. The innocent nursing student is struggling to care for her ailing father, keep a roof over their head, and start a new career. Then fate further complicates her life by dropping two very different men in her lap and forcing her to make a choice that will change her life forever.

Dr. Ken Beckman—vascular surgeon by day, sadist by night—has three hard-and-fast rules: Never date where he works, never touch vanillas, and never get tangled up with a virgin. But the moment he meets Heavenly, he aches to toss his scruples aside and claim the untouched beauty. She’s not ready for a man like him, but he can’t make himself walk away—even when he discovers he’s not the only one caught in her spell.

Seth Cooper, ex-cop turned private eye, isn’t looking for a happily ever after, just a hot-and-sweaty good time. The minute he lays eyes on Heavenly, he’s all for coaxing the angel into his bed. But it isn’t long before she’s so deep under his skin that he’s contemplating putting his broken past behind him and turning his life upside down for her. Then he realizes he’s got competition…

In the past, Beck and Seth were as close as brothers. But now that they’re vying for the same girl, the games get vicious—until they realize that Heavenly is keeping secrets from them both. Will they call a truce and work together again…or lose her for good?

Enchantingly raw! A story of mix-matched lifestyles being forced to mesh together when matters of the heart become involved. If you read the earlier books in Raine’s Doms of her Life series, you’ll recognize Beck and Seth as good friends of Macen, Raine and Liam. They both played pivotal parts in that earlier story line and you’ll already understand their lifestyle greatly from reading those. If you didn’t, you’ll still be able to pick up what’s going on without much trouble, but I don’t think I’d have enjoyed the nuance of having them compete over a woman as much if I hadn’t met them earlier. The main characters catch our attention quickly and the story line is laid out well to keep us entertained. There are parts where it drags a bit, and my least favorite part of the book was the fact that it goes back and forth in time. I really would have enjoyed it more if it has just gone chronologically along instead of flipping back and forth. There are also some plot holes from the past that are left blank, but I’m assuming those are going to become known to us in the future books. Overall, I really enjoyed the players in this story and was invested until the end in seeing a happy ending. Looking forward to more to come!

Nursing student Heavenly Young has a lot on her plate. She’s working as much as possible to make ends meet with a full-time school schedule and a very sick father to care for. She doesn’t have time to fit one more thing into her jam packed days, but tell that to her heart when she meets not one, but two intriguing men who catch her attention and make her want to spend the day in their arms!

Dr. Ken (Beck) Beckman works hard as a vascular surgeon by day and plays hard as a dominant at night. He’s a good friend of Macen’s and has been in the lifestyle for many years. He likes his women pliant, ready to play and seasoned in the lifestyle. He has three rules he lives by … no vanilla, no virgins, no newbies. So imagine his surprise when he’s taken under the spell of this gorgeous, young nursing student who seems too good to live in his big bad world. He’s willing to change a lot in order to have her in his life!

Ex cop, turned private investigator Seth Cooper is in town helping his good friend Liam out when he encounters Heavenly and is instantly enchanted. He’s the man who’s always out for a good time and never looking for a commitment, and when he sees her, his first thoughts are to get her into his bed, but as he gets to know her, he realizes she’s not anything like the women he plays with. She’s the real deal … and he can’t wait to give her the world!

Raine’s big brother shoved a glass of thick red vino in her hand. “So, did you find someone to fuck your brains out?”
She recoiled. If she gave him an equally blunt answer, would he stop this mortifying inquisition?
“Yes. It was easy.” Heavenly punctuated her lie with a bright smile.
River glowered. “Tell me Beck or Seth finally manned up.”
“He’s someone you don’t know.”
One of River’s dark brows shot up. “Where did you meet him?”
“Um…around.”
“What does that mean? A park? A bar? A grocery store? A swingers’ club?”
“Why does it matter? I found someone and it was lovely.”
He looked skeptical. “Lovely? That’s how you describe meeting a stranger, losing your clothes, and banging him?”
Heavenly bristled. “How would you describe a hookup?”
“Hot, sweaty, messy. Mind-blowing. Spine-melting. Earth-shattering.” River snorted. “Never lovely.”
“Sweaty?” She shuddered. “That sounds unpleasant. It was nice. I…tingled.”
“Tingled?” He scowled. “Did your pussy fall asleep because he couldn’t find your clit? Maybe you should have given him a map.”
She nearly choked on her wine. “I found the experience perfectly satisfying.”
“Sweetheart, you don’t know squat about satisfaction.” Raine’s brother leaned in and peered at her, eye to eye. “Here’s what I think happened: You haven’t so much as flirted with another man. You don’t understand why ‘lovely’ sex is bad because you’ve never had it. In fact, not only did you not have sex with this mysterious ‘stud,’ you haven’t offered the virginity you asked me to take to anyone else.”
“What. The fuck. Did you say?” Beck growled suddenly.
Heavenly glanced over her shoulder. Both Beck and Seth glared from across the kitchen. Oh, no.
“Get out,” Seth snapped at River, hauling ass across the room. “Now. While you can still walk.”
Dread burned her veins. She didn’t have to wonder how much they’d overheard. Obviously, it had been more than enough. Tonight had just gone from mortifying to catastrophic.
River backed away, hands raised. “Hey, just so you know, I turned her down because I like my balls where they are.”
“That’s the only reason you’re getting to keep them,” Beck insisted. “Seth told you to get the fuck out.”
“I’m leaving,” River assured, then glanced her way. “Good luck.”
Once he’d gone, silence descended. She was alone with the two men who had been tempting, confusing, and consuming her for months. They were going to demand answers.
This wouldn’t end well.
Heavenly drew in a shaky breath, startled to find both now inches away, arms crossed over their chests. Aggression rolled off them, filling the tense air. Beck drilled holes through her with narrowed eyes, set off by a scathing slash of his mouth. Seth’s seething stare was no less displeased. Unfortunately, she had nothing to offer the savage beasts except a smile full of trembling bravado.
Because the truth would change everything.
