Journalism graduate student Kate McDermott is a good girl who has done everything she can to please her very powerful and domineering father -- a Justice on New York's Supreme Court with hopes for political office. When she decides to write an article about BDSM in popular culture, she tells herself it's just research and nothing personal for she can't afford to become the target of gossip or scandal. She hopes that the carefully worded agreement she writes up will keep her relationship with the Dominant she will interview strictly professional.
Then 'Master D' - Drake Morgan - walks into the interview and Kate is mortified for not only is he gorgeous, he's the son of her father's best and oldest friend…
Drake Morgan, MD, bass player, philanthropist – Dominant. Known as Master 'D' in Manhattan's BDSM Community, Drake must keep the kinky side of his life secret to protect his very successful career as a neurosurgeon. After a heartbreaking divorce, Drake doesn't do girlfriends, he doesn’t do sleepovers, and he certainly doesn't do breakfast in bed the morning after. He keeps everything in his well-ordered life separate and under his firm control.
Then Kate McDermott crosses his path and screws everything up. Now, nothing is neat and tidy anymore, and no longer under control for Drake is smitten and things are going to get messy…
From Amazon Bestselling Romance author S. E. Lund comes a story of two people who find themselves in each other's arms. The Agreement will stay with you long after you read the final page.
I gave the story 3 stars or 6/10. I received this erotic read as a freebie through BookBub. Deifinitely a story for the over 18 age group.
This story in some ways can be likened to the FSOG series of books in so much as it features a wealthy man and a young professional female. Unlike the FSOG series, in this first in the Unrestrained series. Kate appears to be quite a willing participant, it's her who instigates the agreement initially with an unknown Dominant. She is keen to interview and experience some of what happens in the BDSM culture, as she's keen to write an article about it. Kate is used to dominant men in her life, as her father is a very well known and domineering Judge.
What she hadn't bargained for is the identity of the dominant that she's about to become involved with, known in the BDSM circles as Master D. Master D, turns out to be someone that she knows very well through her father. Drake aka Master D, likes to keep things separate in his life. A place for everything and everything in it's place. All that is about to change though, when Kate becomes the object of his desires in more ways than one and life for Drake is going to become very messy.
I liked the story and the relationship between Kate and Drake. It had me engrossed in it from start to finish and a testament to that is the length of time that it took me to read it, I blitzed it in 2/3 days, which was pretty good going for me.
