NOTE: (This is a Dom/sub series, this book in particular is pretty mild, but the others may not be. Please be prepared before you read this series.)
Stone Sutter is a convicted felon who is out on 'leave' helping out the feds. His job, convince Lily Taylor to testify against Timothy Canton, an evil man who hides his secrets deep, and has put on a show for the state of California, he's about to throw his hat into the governors race. When Stone took one look at Lily, aka Sweet Pea/Misty Smith and fell in love and had to get closer to her.
Lily is working at Dominion, a D/s club. She has so many dark secrets that she keeps a wall around herself. She's meek and mild, and scared of almost everything, with good reason. Canton ruined her life 7 years ago and she's been on the run ever since. Constantly looking over her shoulder and making sure not to get too close to anyone. Until Axel that is. He became her best friend and protector. He taught her so much, and trained her to submit, while caring to her needs. She loved him, but never fell "in love" with him. But he met the love of his life, and has left to go to England for a while, and ended their Dom/sub "relationship". Stone felt he was the perfect man to fill Lily's needS. She needed a new protector, and he knew he had to have her.
I just LOVE Shayla Black! I think everything she writes is amazing! I have to admit though, that I didn't know she had continued the "wicked ties" series, and this is the 11th book! Man do I have some catching up to do! You definitely do not have to read the others before picking up this one, but I guarantee you'll want to pick them up after! Falling In Deeper is simply amazing and a great addition to any collections!
