Can we keep our bond intact? Do we have the courage to find out?
It’s just the beginning of what Fletcher Ford and Drake Newland have done to my world—and my soul—since igniting my desires, answering my dreams and filling every inch of my heart. I am rocked. Changed. Freed. A woman in love…
With two incredible men.
Not that the adjustment has been easy, and not just for my orthodox family. Falling for one dazzling, commanding billionaire is complicated enough. Wading through dysfunctions, judgments and emotional baggage from all sides, we’re searching for the perfect balance of our love, and nearly find it, when disaster slams again—threatening to permanently cripple us this time.
With our bond in shreds and our spirits in tatters, can we find the glue to keep our bond intact, our love whole? Are we broken…or just bent? Do we have the courage to find out?

With the release of the second movie, the hype over FSOG is back in full force. You may or may not have read the books, or seen the movies but are intrigued by the subject matter and perhaps would like to take your own foray into the world of kink. I would like to offer you some alternatives to FSOG. All of the books and authors I will be writing about are ones that I am familiar with, have read and feel will give you a real look into the BDSM lifestyle. For those that indulge, it truly is a lifestyle whether inside the bedroom only or encompassing everyday life. BDSM is more than the kinky sexual acts its practitioners engage in and these authors have captured that in their writing. Check your favorite ebook retailer for these titles and many more fabulous books from these authors.
When asked about what to read after or instead of FSOG, my first response is The Divine Trilogy by author R.E. Hargrave. These books delve into the mindset as well as the sex. Jayden Masterson is the lead male. He is wealthy, settled in his life alone and contracts submissive woman. No strings, no relationships. Then Catherine walks into the club he frequents and begin to challenge everything he thinks he knew. Catherine is not new to the lifestyle. In fact she has a Master once before and is still recovering from that experience. Though she craves letting someone else be in charge, she feels the club will give her the distance she also needs from a Master. A chance to scratch the itch, if you will. These two collide and the result is sheer brilliance. Ms. Hargrave delves into how the relationship grows and the thoughts each has about what they thought they needed. Throughout the trilogy each faces the things that scare them the most and together they triumph over the hurdles and build the relationship each secretly craved.
Deanndra Hall is another author who keeps the steam high while giving you the whole package. Dos, don’ts and all the emotions and trust that go into any relationship are all there. She has several series that include BDSM. My best recommendation to start with is Adventurous Me. This starts off the Me, You and Us series. Club Bliss is centerpoint of the action. Trish’s husband of 30 years has left her for being boring. While drinking away her troubles she is invited by a mysterious handsome gentlemen to Club Bliss. These are stories of imperfect humans reaching out into the world. They make mistakes and work through fixing them. The relationship is the central theme, surrounded by character growth and some of the steamiest scenes I have read. Ms. Hall’s other series start with Love Under Construction that takes you Kentucky. Hot Italian men and the women who are strong enough to love them follow throughout all the books in that series and the spin off Citadel Series.
Author Angel Payne brings you the W.I.L.D Boys series. These guys are Special Forces soldiers who work hard and play harder. They depend on each in the field and at home. They all are Alpha males of the highest order, who are not necessarily looking for Ms.Right but Ms Rightnow. With their lives on the line almost daily, settling down is not in the picture. All of them of course, are in for a big surprise. The steam factor is pretty high in these stories, however, the relationships and what it takes to truly make them work is the focal point in all of them. Start with Saved by his Submissive and work through the series. Though they can be read as a stand alone.

Make a wish…
Engineering genius. Billionaire icon. Consultant to kings. Golden-haired god. Cassian Court is a legend before he even steps foot on the remote island of Arcadia—but from the moment he locks eyes with Mishella Santelle, she can see only the man beneath the power, the presence, and the muscles…the bruised soul for whom hers has been destined…
But destiny isn’t a luxury for a woman of the Arcadian Court.
Close your eyes…
When six months of her life are bargained to Cassian in a multimillion dollar contract, Mishella must learn the rules of a more ruthless kingdom: New York City. In this glamorous jungle, paths are harder to discern, enemies are more cleverly camouflaged…and passions are impossible to ignore, especially when awakened by the man who can read her every desire with a glance, control her every arousal with a touch…
Helpless against how her body and soul react to this man, Mishella dreads her heart is soon to follow—for the ghosts from Cassian’s past will never free him to return her love. In six months, she’ll simply be a memory to him…the naughty little toy he played with for a while…
Unless she can prove the impossible.
That their love is worth fighting for.
