Wounded Beast – Georgia Le Carre

The first time I met Dominic his magnetic arrogance took my breath away. He was everything I’d never expected to have. A drop dead gorgeous Alpha bad boy.

He’s taken me to places emotionally and sexually unimaginable and I’m deliciously addicted.

Everything is perfect, well almost. Except there’s the parts of him that I cannot reach . The parts he keeps locked away…
