Raith Alden is tired of the corporate cut throat world and has decided to try something more… well, suited to his nature. His plans include starting a BDSM club in Tahoe but first he must find the perfect location. While he is anxious to break ground, so to speak, on his new club, Raith is in no hurry to end his association with the realtor. In fact, he’s rather enjoying calling Ms. Aimon several times a day just to antagonize her. Unlike most people Raith deals with, she won’t take any guff off him and doesn’t treat him differently just because he’s wealthy.
Alexandra Aimon enjoys bantering with Raith but she’s a bit disconcerted by his Dominance and BDSM in general. It’s not that she’s opposed to it but until Raith clued her into the ‘scene’ she was unaware that there were others who feel the same way she does. She’s dreamed of submitting heart, body and soul to a dominant man but never thought that it would happen. Now she can’t help but think of the possibilities. Of course she doesn’t mix business with pleasure so there’s no sense in even considering Mr. Alden for introducing her into the BDSM lifestyle. Not that she would anyway. He’s entirely too bossy and too used to getting his own way for her liking.
No matter how hard Alexandra tries to convince herself that Raith is completely off limits she can’t deny that she is attracted by his Dominant nature. Just the tone of his voice turns her on and when he makes his requests resemble commands she finds herself wanting to obey. There’s that whole pesky ‘no mixing business with pleasure’ policy that Alexandra can hide behind for now, but Rafe has seen her desire and he’s determined to find out just how perfect Alexandra is for him. All he has to do is close the deal on a property he desires for his club and then he can concentrate on more pleasurable activities – like showing his former realtor just how satisfying whips, chains, leathers and a sound spanking can be.
I’ve always enjoyed Maggie Casper’s storylines because of the strong-willed characters, witty dialogue and BDSM elements. A LOVE LIKE NO OTHER has all those traits and more. Rafe and Alexandra are strong willed characters who aren’t afraid to go after what they want – even if Alexandra isn’t entirely sure what exactly that entails. She challenges him in ways that he finds positively enchanting and guarantees he’ll never be bored with her. The sex scenes are hot enough to make you break out in a sweat, but it’s the verbal sparring and conversations between Rafe and Alexandra that bring this story and these particular characters to life. A LOVE LIKE NO OTHER is a relatively short story but it’s one you’re bound to enjoy and will want to read over and over.
