Drake Morgan, MD, Neurosurgeon, bass player, philanthropist – Dominant. He doesn’t do girlfriends, he doesn’t do sleepovers, and he certainly doesn’t do breakfast in bed the morning after. He has his surgical slate at New York Presbyterian, he has a charitable foundation providing surgical tools to hospitals in Africa, he has his Brit Invasion cover band, Mersey, and he has his secret life as a Dominant in Manhattan’s BDSM community. Into bondage, D/s and the occasional dungeon scene, Drake keeps every part of his life separate, the divisions between them neat and tidy. His weeks are filled with surgeries, music and D/s sex, and none of the well-planned and scheduled parts of his life intersect. That is until Kate McDermott crosses his path and screws everything up. Now, nothing is neat and tidy anymore, for Drake is smitten and things are going to get messy…
In the second part of Drake Restrained, Drake and Kate grow closer and Kate is unable to resist Drake’s determined seduction.
Warning: This is a companion novel and should be read after you’ve read The Restrained Series.
Drake Restrained (Part 2) is just what I needed. I swear, Dr. Delish is the sexier, smarter, version of a certain Dom we all grew to love. I loved getting into his mind and reading his thoughts on the one sub he just can’t get enough of.
In Part 2, we see Kate and Drake’s love story from his POV starting with her finding out that he is the Dom that she was going to interview. You see Kate’s resistance and Drake’s unwillingness to let her get away. We end on a bit of a cliffhanger when Kate says she cannot enter their relationship for his sake.
Even from this small section, the reader just knows that Kate is different from all of his other subs. He doesn’t woo them as much as he does Kate. He is totally different, and Lara, his boss can see that in him. I will admit, had I read Drake’s POV before Kate’s, I don’t think I would’ve liked her as much. But, I love the two of them together from the previous novels and their chemistry is off the charts.
I have read a lot of BDSM novels. Yes, this one is on the lighter side, but it is also the best written. I love both Kate and Drake and the journey that these two take. I am hopelessly addicted to this series and cannot wait for more.
