As a child, Kelly dreamt of having a handsome husband, beautiful children, and a dog playing in the backyard. But life rarely turns out the way you plan, and she fears her clock is ticking. Still on the prowl for the perfect husband, she becomes more bold in her search. A night that starts out like any other, ends up being the one that changes everything. As the owner of a security company, Kendrick McFall takes safety very seriously. His first instinct is to keep Kelly at arms length. However, she isn’t his to command,and she isn’t easily persuaded to stay away from the world in which Kendrick lives. A world that she craves. Taking her under his protection seems to be the only way to keep her safe from the ghosts of his past, and protect her from new threats. Along the way he doesn’t just seek to secure her safety, he wants to secure her heart.

OMG, I loved this.  Kelly is foot loose and fancy free, searching for that "special someone" to give her the family she's always wanted. Of course, she's read some BDSM stories and wonders, like the rest of us, if it's something she'd be interested in, so when she meets up with a guy at the bar and he suggests a dungeon party, she's all over it.
Kendrick, an ex-cop security specialist is doing a security gig for a friend's party, while there he happens to notice a  pretty girl who seems slightly out of it, being led to  a spanking bench...hmm can you guess where it goes?  Of course you can.
Measha Stone writes a wonderful story, complete with likeable characters and a bent for Dominance and submission.  Even though this is book 2, it is an entirely standalone novel.  This series just revolves around the same group of friends, so you can just pick it up and read without worrying you've missed something important.  I love her writing style, it's so engaging and easy to follow.
Her stories are SO good.  This one has a bit of BDSM side, a little D/s, spanking and such...nothing way far out there.  Possible trigger if you're against kidnapping, just fyi..
I thought this was a great addition to the Windy City Series, and I can't wait for more.
4.5 Stars

Jessica Stanley is comfortable in her orderly life as a paralegal at a high end law firm.  Having dated her fair share of liars and manipulators, Jessica views men through a pair of thick, cynical lenses.  Men are good for one thing in her eyes, and one thing only. Her predictable life is thrown into a whirlwind of new experiences when she meets a dominating man at a casual dinner with friends. Royce Bradford is a man of intent and is used to getting his way. Until he meets Jessica.  She is wound tight, and he finds himself yearning to unravel her secrets and her passions. Jessica declares their relationship casual. She’s tempted by his seductive tone and unusually powerful demeanor to give him that much. But for Royce, it’s not enough. He wants more. Except Jessica has built a secret tomb around her heart, and it will take a lot more than sensual play times and verbal commands for him to be allowed entrance.  Royce never backs down from his desires. He takes up the challenge to seek out her Hidden Heart.
