Doms of the FBI books 1 & 2
Picking herself up after the devastating loss of her master is more difficult than Darcy anticipated. Just when she needs someone the most, a handsome dom steps in and helps her out. Theo is thoughtful, dominant, and demanding — everything she needs. He pushes her boundaries, tests her limits, and takes her to new heights. With him, she remembers what it is to feel joy and love and a firm hand on her ass.
Agent Malcolm Legato is after a corrupt businessman, and Darcy is his ticket into the upper echelon of Snyder Corp. As “Theo,” he makes contact with her and cultivates her as an asset. Since she’s also a suspect in her master’s disappearance, he can’t reveal himself to her, even when he realizes she’s another of Snyder’s victims. He falls hard for this feisty submissive, and he knows he’ll break her heart the moment she finds out he’s been lying to her all along.
When it all falls apart, will Darcy be able to find the strength to forgive Malcolm so they can build a life together and the courage to bring justice to the man she loved and lost?
Keith Rossetti grew up the hard way–fleeing from his older sister’s fists and finding addiction at a young age. It’s a miracle he was able to make it into the FBI, and he fiercely guards his relationships with a handful of close friends.
When Katrina Legato’s brother brought home his Marine buddy all those years ago, she fell head-over-heels in love. Ten years have elapsed, and she hasn’t forgotten that toe-curling kiss he gave her for her eighteenth birthday. She knows he’s a demanding Dom who doesn’t respect his submissives or keep them for long, but if that’s all she can have of him, then she’ll take it.
When refusing Kat sends her to another Dom, Keith rethinks his decision. He plans to show her exactly why he’s not a suitable life partner for anybody. But Kat, one of the only women he’s allowed into his heart, isn’t what he expected. She’s no pushover. She demands more from him than anybody ever has, and he finds himself wanting to be the man she thinks he is.
As she repairs his damaged soul, a stalker targets her. When she’s kidnapped, he’ll stop at nothing to get her back.
I am going to start out by saying that you really should read these stories together and in order. I am glad I did, I think some nuances of the stories would not make sense otherwise. So I decided to review them that way for those very reasons.
Re/Bound for me was a little slow at times and I got a little distracted. I loved the premise of the story and action/thriller aspects for me these were a plus. Of the two stories, this was the emotional one for me. I felt so bad for Darcy, not knowing what happened to her first Dom. Just the first scene sets you up for her character and the emotions of the book. I know Malcolm/Theo is just doing his job, but to take Darcy on even more of an emotional roller coaster ride did not make me a big fan. Don’t get me wrong I like Malcolm/Theo he is alpha male and protective but a big romantic too.
Re/Paired, was much more faced paced, kept me in the story. Really Darcy and Katrina are very much alike a few aspects of their stories, Katrina just seems the more worldly one. Katrina is loyal to a fault and that gets her in trouble in this book, when someone close starts stalking her. Katrina wants to be trained as a submissive and what starts out as just trying to protect Kat by Keith turns into training her to be his submissive. Once we get past Keith’s hard exterior watch out, he may be a demanding Dom but he has a soft spot a mile wide for Kitty Kat.
