Her Montana Master (Stateside Doms Book 1) by Maren Smith
Reading this made me want to immediately one-click all the Maren Smith books I haven’t yet bought.
This was just – *swoon*, sigh – quite simply wonderful. The whole book revolves very much around Maddon and Clover, with just a handful of scenes involving other characters. This allows us to really form a connection with both main characters, believe in them and understand them. The emotion, wanting and heart ache both crushed me and filled me with a sense of longing of my own.
Clover is so vulnerable, so damaged by the men in her life and her constant poor choices, Maddon has his own issues but is the rock that anchors her world. The chemistry and bond the author portrayed between the pair held me spellbound from the first to last word. I may even have shed the odd tear, especially at the end. The only reason I didn’t read it in one go was that it got so late I fell asleep before I could read it all.
This was very much a book you never wanted to end, it was sweet, steamy, loving, happy, sad and troubled all in one well written package. Madden is such a caring, loving Dom, not perfect but perfect for Clover. Strict when he needs to be, recognising Clover’s needs and filling them. Whilst the BDSM content is fairly ‘light’ it was still extremely hot and fitted well with the story. I’m definitely looking forward to more books in this series.
He’s known her since she was two…
Abandoned by her father, ignored by her mother, Clover Harris has always fantasized about her brother’s best friend. He’s the only person in her life who’s always been there. The only problem: he’s never shown any interest in her as anything more than a little sister. Until the day she loses everything. Cast out of her home, with nothing and nowhere to go, Clover does what she always has. She runs… straight to Madden, only this time, he’s all done playing big brother.
He’s loved her since she was twelve…
A dominant man, Madden Briggs knows a submissive when he sees one, and in Clover he sees everything he’s ever wanted, but she’s kept him strictly in the like-a-brother zone for more than twenty years. That all comes to an end the day she shows up at his door. She wants a job; he hires her. She needs money; he’ll let her earn it. She dreams about a car so she can leave this town forever; he’ll even teach her how to drive. But it’s the lost and scared submissive inside her that he aches to touch, and her willingness to obey becomes his addiction.
And in the end, she’s still going to leave… unless Her Montana Master can somehow change her mind.
