The Bold and The Dominant by Shayla Black (Book Review)

After spending weeks trying to reach Raine Kendall, Dominants Liam O’Neill and Macen Hammerman have finally broken past the walls to their submissive’s wounded heart. Before they can enjoy their newfound closeness, Liam’s past comes back to haunt him when his ex-wife drops in—with a secret that could tear his world apart. Forced to leave Raine in Hammer’s care, Liam is stuck on the outside, stewing in frustration and insecurity…and wondering if Raine no longer needs him or if Hammer alone completes her.

Always the pillar of strength, Hammer tries to help Liam while sheltering their woman. But Raine soon discovers the truth that threatens the trio’s chance of a happily-ever-after. Determined to hold them together, the two men cook up a scheme to uncover the ex’s secret. When an old nemesis returns and targets Raine, can Liam and Hammer come together to slay the danger and save the woman they both love?

—–> Review (Spoilers included) <—–
I knew Liam’s ex-wife was a conniving shrew but she really took her bitchiness to a whole new level in this installment. She not only pretended a baby was Liam’s and hers, but she also paid Raine’s dad to kidnap Raine so she could get her claws into Liam. 
Luckily, she will be serving hard time but not before Raine had to endure more physical and emotional pain courtesy of her dad, Bill. 
While he kept her hostage, he divulged the abuse he administered to her older sister and the death of said sister at his hands. He also killed her mother. Luckily, he was able to save her own life but he inflicted more pain onto her….or ended her life. 
She is no longer a victim. Raine has became a strong woman through the trials has taught her. Way to take back your life!!!! 
As for Beck and Seth, the stage has been set and it’s going to be a “Heavenly” sight to watch them fall. Pun intended. 🙂

My only complaint….. I like love bites but not to the extreme in this tale. Biting hard enough to draw blood is not sexy in my book. The two guys literally left so many marks on her body officials assumed it was part of her assault.  In my opinion, that’s pushing the pain aspect of what should be a sexy, sensual part of lovemaking.
