Dom Fever by Alaska Angelini

Dom Fever
Dom Fever by Alaska Angelini

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Devlin Black gives new meaning to the term Daddy Dom in Dom Fever. But seriously, when this Dom decided he was ready to settle down and build a family, he meant it. After learning at the end of Dom Up that he had, unbeknownst to him, started that family with the woman he actually wanted for a wife and sub, his initial response was an overwhelming sense of betrayal. Victoria had not only not told him about Ava, she lied about not getting pregnant that night. But as the reality of fatherhood sets in, Devlin also found happiness in the fact that he had a daughter. Always the Dom, Devlin forces his way into Victoria’s home so that he can be involved with the day-to-day raising of his daughter. Like I said, a whole new kind of Daddy Dom because Devlin takes his new job as a father seriously and I have to say that the scenes with him and Ava are so sweet.

Dom Fever picks up right where Dom Up ended and Devlin not only has come to terms with Victoria’s betrayal, but he has to decide what he wants their future to look like. While I completely understood Victoria’s position in book one as to why she didn’t tell him, I also understood Devlin’s feeling of betrayal and his inability to forgive her immediately after she apologized. This actually made Dev’s character feel that much more realistic. When he finally decides that he wants to move past it, he still faces an uphill battle convincing Victoria that he is serious about making it work. He also forgets his own rule: a lie by omission is still a lie and it comes back to bite him in the arse big time. He commits the same sin he condemned Victoria of – lying by omission – and finds his newly achieved happiness shattering in horrifying ways. Just as Ms. Angelini did to me and Victoria at the end of book one, so she does again at the end of book two. At least this time I’ve got Devlin to keep me company as I find myself hanging off yet another cliff. I’m so glad I’ve got This Dom queued up to go next because I have to know what happens next.

I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
