He’s an extremely sexy surgeon and she’s a resident. They’ve eyed one another quite often but do they stand the slightest chance of becoming a couple?


Eli Calhoun, thoracic surgeon, dominant male has eyes for a lovely resident in his department. Unfortunately, he believes she’s not submissive material.

 

Maggie Berman has some serious erotic thoughts running through her head about the sexy surgeon. She must stay away from him. After a really nasty experience with a former Master, she does not wish to repeat it.

 

After a very long day at the hospital that ended with the loss of a life, Eli talks Maggie into going with him for a drink. He doesn’t want her driving home in her current frame of mind.

 

They talk, they dance and their emotions run wild. She looks up at him during a dance and he’s totally lost. He doesn’t resist the opportunity to kiss her. The kiss is explosive and Eli wants her with every fiber of his being and believes she feel the same about him. Eli does what he has to do; he escorts her to her vehicle and sends her on her way home - alone.

 

Eli’s chance to press his suit comes when he isn’t on duty and Maggie’s faced with an emergency surgery. The patient not only has a bullet in his chest, there another bullet that’s ripped the man’s femoral artery. By rote, but wishing Eli was there to guide her, Maggie cuts into the man’s chest but cannot save him.

 

This time Eli does not let her get away. He does his best to convince her that there’d been no hope for the man. Maggie allows him to take her home. He seizes the opportunity he let slip before.

 

The MEMBERS ONLY series has been revised, has a new home and a new title - CLUB RIO BRAVA. If you loved the first one, you’ll definitely want to read this one. Ann’s characters are real and her ability to bring a story together makes you want to read it in one sitting – which I did.

 

Eli and Maggie carry a lot of emotional baggage. I cheered them on as they began to go where they least expected life to take them. There were some obstacles, of course. If you want to know what happens to this love struck couple, don’t miss the opportunity to buy it. Eli is determined to win her over and convince her that he’d never hurt her or take anything away from her.

 

A word of warning. CLUB RIO BRAVA: LOVING CONTROL does contain elements of BDSM and is not for anyone under the age of eighteen. If you’re older and enjoyed the original series, you’ll love this one. If you didn’t read it, you’re in for a treat! It’s a recommended read and I personally recommend a glass of iced tea to sip on while you read.
