Part of the 1-800-DOM-help series.
Harte Donovan has a problem. A murder leads to him wanting a sexy stripper bound and naked in front of him. He can’t let his secret desires ruin his career as a detective. But when he’s given a mysterious business card, Harte discovers a side of himself he intends to fully embrace.
Ramey Nichols strips for a living and he’s not willing to pretend to be something he’s not. When this sexy submissive meets the closeted cop and unwitting Dom, something has got to give. That something might just be Ramey. Ramey knows what he wants, and more than that, finds himself Needing Harte.
Throw a sexy dominate cop with a submissive male stripper and you end up with a sizzling story. Harte Donovan is a closet detective who falls hard for Ramey Nichols. Not one to deal well with emotion, Harte discovers a new world of D/s role-playing from a business card that directs callers to a helpline.
I have to admit, this book is deliciously awesome. The characters were well crafted with their own conflicts and desires, which made the story so exciting to read. While it wasn’t easy for Harte to risk his job and confront his feelings for Ramey, I was happy to see that he got his HEA.
Marilu Mann did a wonderful job introducing two hot pair in dominate and submissive roles that was explicit and plentiful. The plot had a nice twist of suspense that will have you wondering what happens next. If you’re looking for a steamy read with a great plot and BDSM element, look no further than Needing Harte.
