My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I reviewed my personal copy of this book for Wicked Reads.

One Dom to Love is a book that I have read several times, but not since I began writing reviews. I actually stumbled upon it after reading a couple of books in Ms. Black’s Virgin series that she co-authors with Lexi Blake and I wanted to read more of her writing. After finishing One Dom to Love the first time, I was glad that I had. It is among my early forays into BDSM erotica and I still love it.

One of the things I enjoy most about One Dom to Love is the angst that all three main characters experience throughout the book. In most cases, I don’t typically enjoy the level of angst that is present in this book. However, the authors do an outstanding job of infusing so much emotion accompanying the angst that I often felt as if I was experiencing the characters’ betrayal, heartbreak, pain, and love right along with them. While Macen and Liam are most definitely alpha males and Doms, their actions toward Raine frequently demonstrate a lack of control. The love that Macen and Liam feel for Raine is apparent, even when their actions – especially Macen’s – cause her to question their feelings. Raine’s frustration with Macen is completely understandable as the man pushes her away time after time until Liam shows an interest in her, then Macen is literally all over her only to push her away again the following morning. It is no wonder that Raine doesn’t understand why Liam wants her as Macen’s unintentional head games have done a number on her already damaged self-image.

Despite this being a reread for me, I found One Dom to Love to be just as enjoyable as the first time I read it. I was drawn back into Raine’s world and the tug of war she experienced between Macen and Liam and wasn’t ready for it to end. At least when I finished reading it this time, the sequel is already available. I am looking forward to reading The Young and the Submissive to find out what happens next between Raine, Liam, and Macen.
