Sometimes the perfect man is the one who’s most forbidden.
After her husband’s death, Isabella Santos fled Washington and its bruising memories. But estate matters force her to return and fate gives her a chance to connect with a man she’d always secretly longed to call Master—Mark, the brother of her late husband. Mark, retired from his black ops career, grabs the second chance Isabella’s sudden appearance in D.C. presents. He’s never forgiven his late brother’s neglect of Isabella, a woman he’s loved from afar for ten years. Now reunited, he’s determined to earn her heart and submission. As their forbidden love blooms, they forge a perfect domestic discipline life that provides a feeling of oneness and completion. But her family’s opposition and demons from her late husband’s life intervene. In the end, the only way to have the future they’ve dreamed of is to come to terms with the past.
This blurb really had me so excited to read it but once I actually started reading it, it fell a bit flat for me.
Marco and Isabella connect after Isabella’s husband dies, but also Isabella’s husband Jorge is Marco’s brother. There seems to be so much sex in this book but not much of a story, if there had been more substance and drama I probably would have enjoyed it a lot more.
Isabella just seems to be a very boring character, I understand being a submissive and giving herself over to Marco, but it just seemed like this book had a very different message. It didn’t come across as submissive to me, it came across as controlling. I’ve read books like this in the past and those books worked for me so I’m not overly sure why this one didn’t,
I didn’t connect with the characters or the story but I’m sure this is just me and my opinion. Others may connect with it more than I did.

Elizabeth SaFleur is an erotic romance author and dying-to-retire public relations practitioner who writes, tweets and posts under a pseudonym since her business clients might be (would be) shocked at her second career choice. She wrote the Elite Doms of Washington, a contemporary erotic romance series, somewhat inspired by her thirty-year career serving D.C. clients, though her work life didn’t include the graphic smexiness or BDSM she features. However, they provided terrific inspiration and taught her not all power in D.C. is wielded by politicians. When not writing, Elizabeth indulges in dance classes, visits to wineries and hiking with friends. She is owned by a 17-pound Westie dog named Callum, who allows Elizabeth and her husband to share his 28 acre Central Virginia farm that he calls home. (Callum is the real Dom in the family.)
