Romance Erotica Sensual | Romance Military

When a mission gone wrong has Colonel Stafford, head of a deep-cover ops team, in a hospital bed, his first thought is the protection of his daughter Katsu. He orders his protégé Evan Sommers to see to her safety. The old man had no way of knowing that the Marine Corp Captain doesn't want to protect Katsu he wants to OWN her.

Four years had past since her too brief affair with Evan and Katsu has changed. She can be found in any number of bars shooting pool for money. She isn't about to obey a command from him. Not until deadly threats expose her and she finds she must depend on this man and some way ignore the sizzling dynamic that made all her college dates seem so tame.

OWN will do just that ... it will own you from the first to last page. Evan and Katsu have a past that has to be looked at and moved beyond for them to go forward and author Katie Porter does that very well.

If you are not into dominance and submission then OWN might not be for you. That said there is a lot of action and drama to this storyline besides the sexual games that I found interesting. I read to escape and to view other worlds and dom and sub is definitely another world to me. This one was well done and not ridiculously over the top, in my opinion. I also found the team members to be like a family and I am always intrigued by that dynamic. They are well diverse and put together in a way that you could see them as a team. OWN is the first book in the Command Force Alpha series so I am hoping to see more about this intriguing group.

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.

Warning: This book contains a reformed playboy Specials Ops stud who knows how to tease, demand, and spank what he wants out of a colonel’s unruly pool shark of a daughter. Wait…how is this supposed to be a warning?
