Mya believed she didn’t deserve love. Jake thought he could never love again. But a threat to Mya’s life galvanizes Jake’s protective instincts—and opens his heart.
Mya has finally escaped the slums she grew up in and made a life for herself as a chef in the Catered Affairs kitchen, but she has never been able to shed the feelings of inadequacy that were beaten into her by her abusive father. So she stays in the shadows, the quintessential voyeur at the Playground, the BDSM club she belongs to.
Jake is attracted to Mya’s beauty when he spies her across the dungeon at the Playground. But he’s only looking for a play partner for the evening. Ever since he lost his wife in a car crash, he hasn’t been able to commit to anyone again.
After a disastrous evening at the club, where Jake pushes Mya out of her comfort zone, it looks like Mya and Jake will not even be friends. But dangerous circumstances push them back together, and Mya must rely on Jake to keep her safe. When a stupid mistake puts her in terrible jeopardy, will Jake be able to come to her rescue in time?
Reader Advisory: This book contains descriptions of domestic abuse, violence and death. Kidnapping and captivity, and resultant trauma post kidnapping and captivity. References to alcoholism and abusive parenting. One scene of anal play/double penetration.
Catering To His Desires is the second book in a series about a group of women who own and run a catering company. This book concentrates on chef Mya and Jake, the lawyer from book one who helped Rebecca’s man. Of course, I’ve come in on book two. (I’ll be grabbing book one though.) This is a completely standalone book, and I didn’t need any prior information to follow along.
I will admit, I came close to pulling the plug a couple of times because of Mya’s behavior. She sticks to the shadows of the BDSM club she’s a member of, gets jealous of her friend finding her Dom, then a hot, hunky Dom tries to scene with her and she freaks out.
Lucky for her, Jake seems to like her. But her behavior just keeps on going into the crapper when he takes her for coffee. Later, an old friend of hers ends up needing help she just can’t provide and she ends up having to call Jake. Mya has self-esteem problems from her upbringing, which accounts for most of her behavior.
When her friend’s situation becomes dangerous to her, she becomes much closer to Jake, but can he keep her safe?
I enjoyed the writing in this book as Ms Carole weaves an excellent tale. I’ll definitely be following the series, and I’m looking forward to the other ladies stories.
