Tease Me Once (Shame on You Book 1) Kindle Edition
From USA Today and Wall Street Journal best-selling romance author, W Winters, comes a provocative tale of a club designed for wealthy sinners. It’s a story crafted for those of us who crave the villain.
Not everyone knows about The Club, which is by design. The main floor entertains the elite. There are dim lights, stolen touches and the liquor flows to ensure the guests get exactly what they want. There are high profile clients, cuffs and collars, contracts and secrets in every corner.
But it’s what lies beneath these floors, down the spiral staircase, that intrigues me the most.
There’s a man who stays in the corner of the darkest rooms. In this world of sinful tastes, he is the ruler, the devil, the boss. Declan Cross.
I knew him once when times were different and the years have changed everything.
He makes me an offer, one that speaks to the very soul of my desire. One I can’t say no to and one that changes everything.
Tease Me Once is the beginning of a series. Prepare for everything seductive and beautifully dark.

Declan and Braelynn are just delicious together. I loved how she embodies a submissive character who has a backbone. Declan is both ruthless and powerful, but has a caring side that comes out for Braelynn. Braelynn is hired as a waitress in The Club unbeknownst to Declan, who runs the Cross family business from his office in the basement. This is not just an upscale club. It offers a variety of services from a secure place to have secret and shady meetings to a place where one can explore the darker sides of their desires. He remembers her from their shared childhood, they went to school together, and they are both instantly attracted to one another. Additionally, the Cross brothers have a mole in their organization and to keep their families and business safe, they must find out who is leaking information to the wrong people. Suspicions are investigated and from here, the plot escalates.
The chemistry throughout this story is off the charts hot. Their intimate scenes are plentiful and intense, without taking away from the overall plot of the story. I love how each character is torn about their relationship but they can’t help their attraction to one another. Willow can write steam that will have you clutching your pearls with a dirty smile on your face. This dark romance is everything you want and then it gives you more. As soon as you dive into it, you’ll turn pages faster and faster and before you know it, you’ll be at the end and wanting more. The next in the series will be well worth waiting for.
On to Tease Me Once, the story of Declan and Braelynn, two individuals that knew each other in a previous life and have been unexpectedly thrown together during some troubling times in both their lives. They must navigate their new relationship and their own personal/business struggles, and it becomes a complete rollercoaster of emotions. The ending was just…wow…MAJOR CLIFFHANGER, but it will be worth it.
Declan is your Alpha male, take it or leave it kind of guy, which makes him even sexier in my opinion because he does not try to hide his reality from Braelynn as some other mafia bosses would. Declan is your typical “hurt my girl and die” kind of guy and is not afraid to take possession of what belongs to him.
Braelynn is a work in progress that has had past trauma and really wants a fresh start in life. She begins working with her best friend in hopes to save up for some of the simpler things in life and ends up becoming personal assistant to The Club boss, Declan. We get to see Braelynn grow into herself throughout the story and begin to know her self-worth.
The relationship between Declan and Braelynn is HOT, HOT, HOT!!! We have some punishment kink, praise kink, and tons of smutty goodness! As always check trigger warnings because some of the scenes can be intense, but I was all for it!

Declan is a tease, that’s for sure.
And I’m excited to reread this next year before the second book is released!
