BLOG TOUR: One Dom to Love by Shayla Black, Jenna Jacob, Isabella LaPearl




Raine Kendall has been in love with her boss, Macen Hammerman, for years. Determined to make the man notice that she’s a grown woman with desires and needs, she pours out her heart and offers her body to him—only to be crushingly rejected. But when his friend, very single, very sexy Liam O’Neill watches the other Dom refuse to act on his obvious feelings for Raine, he resolves to step in and do whatever it takes to help Hammer find happiness again, even rousing his friend’s possessive instincts by making the girl a proposition too tempting to refuse. But he never imagines that he’ll end up falling for her himself.
Hammer has buried his lust for Raine for years. After rescuing the budding runaway from an alley behind his exclusive BDSM Dungeon, he has come to covet the pretty submissive. But tragedy has taught him that he can never be what she needs. So he watches over her while struggling to keep his distance. Liam’s crafty plan blindsides Hammer, especially when he sees how determined his friend is to possess Raine for his own. Hammer isn’t ready to give the lovely submissive over to any other Dom, but can he heal from his past and fight for her? Or will he lose Raine if she truly gives herself—heart, body, and soul—to Liam?

Macen, aka Hammer, took Raine in when she needed it most.  He has protected her for so long, even scaring other Doms away but he never helped her to truly be a submissive or claim her for his own.  It's not until his best friend Liam claims Raine that Hammer has a tough time.  Hammer should have stepped up.  He played with all the other subs, why not claim her and train her?  Why was he not honest with Liam? Yeah, the more I write this review, the more I'm disliking the guy

Then there's Liam. Poor lad. He was only trying to help Hammer to see that he was in love with Raine but in turn Liam falls for Raine himself.  He only meant to put a training collar on her and teach her the ways or to have Hammer fight for her.

Raine wants to open up but has difficulty. She needs to give herself completely and utterly to Liam but how can she when she still sees Hammer, everyday.  A man she has loved for so long.  It's not until she is whisked away from Shadows that she makes progress but dang it, Hammer still gets in the way.

Raine, Liam, and Macen.  A love triangle.  Can the two alpha Doms ever be friends again?  Will their past sharing haunt them or will they finally communicate with each other?  Will Raine be able to truly submit to a Dom?  Can she figure out how to let Hammer go and love Liam?

I'm torn between the two men.  As much as I want to punch Hammer, once you find out about his past, you soften a little.  Things makes some sense.  Then there is Liam. He was only trying to open his buddies eyes but in the process gives his heart to Raine.

I can say that this book was amazing and I couldn't put it down once I started it.  In One Dom, there is what seems like a tug-of-war between the characters.  You are introduced to Raine, Macen (Hammer), and Liam.  Raine, the heroine, has some pretty deep issues spawning from her childhood.  She is an emotional HOT-MESS who believes she is undeserving of love, her self-esteem is in the gutter, and she is starved for affection.  She is this hot-headed woman, who has an extremely difficult time holding her tongue when she gets mad.  Boy does she ever let Macen know how she feels...Raine has fallen for Macen, the man who removed her from her life as a run away and set her on her own two feet.  She received her college degree but instead of pursuing her dreams, spends her days working in a BDSM club owned by Macen aka Hammer.

Macen is also damaged and has a very specific type of woman he needs.  This is due to losing his wife because of his proclivities.  He wants to spare Raine of this so he pushes her away and loves her from a distance refusing the love he so deserves as well. During his parade of dungeon women, he forces Raine's hand in declaring her love for him. He quickly shuts this down, but it doesn't stop Raine.  She breaches security during the night and makes her way into Macen's room.  Boy does it get hot in there...I won't tell you what happens but All HELL BREAKS LOOSE!!

After all hell breaks loose, Liam, Macen friend, wants to push Macen into seeing how he feels for Raine.  His plan doesn't go exactly as planned.  Instead of Macen seeing how he feels for Raine, Liam falls for her.  Honestly, I would too.  He is loving and compassionate all while being the Dom she needs.  He is not afraid to show her how he feels.  He seems to know how to reach Raine, while establishing trust.  Due to Raine sneaking into Macen's room, she is to be punished.  Needless to say Liam didn't like how the scene was going down.  Beck, a sadist, was administering Raine's punishment.  Let me just seemed it would have hurt like hell.  I am no way a pain junkie. Anyhow, Liam steps in...

Raine is stuck between two Doms...who will she choose...I'm not telling you that.  Will she choose or will she walk...breaking both Macen and Liam's hearts? I will tell you this book is awesome and I can't wait to begin the second, the third, and however many is in this series.  Be sure to grab this one...
