Title: Renovating A Heart (Love Under Construction Book #3)
Author: Deandra Hall
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 19, 2014
Steve McCoy survived a harrowing youth and a horrible tragedy and still made it as a successful attorney and businessman. And he’s managed to keep his broken, battered heart under wraps by working with short-term submissives at his popular BDSM club, Eden’s Gate.
Until Kelly Markham came along. Kelly’s history was as bad or worse than Steve’s. She lost the only man she ever loved, a faithful, loving Dom, but she never lost hope. When she’s invited to visit Eden’s Gate, she feels like she’s finally found a home. Better yet, she finds a man who’ll help her reintegrate into the community, even if his help is only offered for one month.
Unfortunately, Kelly discovers that being Steve’s submissive is not easy. Matter of fact, when she accidentally trips a trigger from Steve’s history, being his submissive could actually be dangerous, even deadly. Steve’s determined to keep her at a distance and never show her his heart, but can he hold out when he realizes his best shot at a happily ever after might not survive?
This book #3 in this series. Now it is Steve McCoy's and Kelly Markham's turn. Their story is steamy and full of conflicted emotions. Steve is a Dominant and owns a BDSM club in addition to his law practice. Kelly approaches him on a consultation trying to enforce a previous D/s contract. This surprises Steve who did not know Kelly was a submissive. One thing leads to another and they end up in a one month arrangement as Dominant and submissive.
The story that evolves is a complex story of childhood emotional scars, the power of love, and inevitable hope that grows in our two main characters as they seek a successful union full of love and promises of a family.
Their journey is fraught with obstacles and the past once again raises its ugly head to endanger not only the slim hope they hold, but their lives too.
This series continues to surprise and delight. What started in book #1 as the story of middle age romance, has now evolved to include friends and family. They each bring to this story their own past and foibles enriching the storyline.
Be aware, this book ends in a cliffhanger. Do not be too concerned, book #4 Planning An Addition is promised for this Fall.
