This book touchesevery note. The romance, the hot BDSM Scene's, Ryker's love of both Dakota and Skye. Is moving in both how he treats both of his girls and anything he would dofor them by leaving them so he would never hurt them again. Yet even though Dakota was angry with Ryker, both Skye and Dakota can't live without him. A must read, impossible to put down.
Oh my goodness...this is truly a love story from beginning to end. Who can resist a sexy Dom, a beautiful and smart woman. And a precocious 3 year old girl? Their story is a roller-coaster ride from the beginning, and you won't be able to stop reading to the finish line!
This was one of the best stories that I have read . Anya is a fabulous author, and this book had me glued to the pages. This series just gets better and better with each book. It is a beautiful love story with drama, suspense, some very hot action.
A great addition to this series is a spinoff from The Manor series, where we meet Gabriel Ryan at his BDSM club, The Eros Pit in Denver, Colorado. After the attack on Sophia, Dakota Reed will be handling The Sea Single Night event at the club. She is also one of the submissives participating—and will be the last to draw a marker. Ryker Laffitte is one of the Doms also participating—better known as The Bad Boy of Eternal Eros. The story will be about Dakota and Ryker and begins with the luck of the draw!
“Bound, blindfolded, and at the bad boy Dom’s mercy.”
“It intrigued him: the dichotomy of her switch from perfect submissive to stubborn independence and defiance.”
Dakota Reed is a single mom to a two-year-old named Skye. She went to work in the office for Gabriel Ryan before her daughter was born. The position pays very well, has afforded her the ability to buy a home in a nice subdivision, send Skye to daycare, and make sound plans for her future. Skye’s sperm donor made it known early in the pregnancy he did not want a child and to leave him alone—which she honored, no child support, nothing. Ryker Laffitte is a man who has a reputation as a bad boy, wearing his hair long, not involved in relationships, just playing at the club. He has never married, never collared a submissive, and keeps his personal life quiet. He has a motorcycle shop and rides a Harley. He’s everything a girl’s parent warns her to avoid.
“The man was every dark, dirty, naughty fantasy she had ever had rolled into one. He was the bad boy mothers warned their daughters about.”
The story keeps the pages turning as Ryker and Dakota scene together. He will instruct her to text him when she arrives home—and she doesn’t. Rather than allow it just to pass, he will show up at her home, and Skye will take to Ryker and call him Bear. A return to her house will find her so upset, learning that Skye’s father was suing her for full custody and stated she was an unfit mother. While Ryker keeps things quiet, he enlisted the services of his attorney to help Dakota and Skye. Ryker never felt he would fall for a woman, especially one with a kid; he has fallen hard for Dakota and Skye.
“It was like all the waiting he had done had been waiting for her arrival in his life. Now that Dakota was in his life, he couldn’t imagine his life without her in it.” “Warmth blasted thought him. And an organ he’d thought he would never use stuttered to life and began to beat—for her.”
“She couldn’t help but think that the bad boy of Eternal Eros had ended up being everything she needed.”
But, this story has the good, the bad, and the ugly of people. The custody case brings in other people to their lives, and whether Dakota wants to share her daughter with Brian, she must concede to the court order visitation. Then dirt will be introduced and shatter the relationship that Dakota and Ryker are building. She must walk away—because no one will endanger the relationship with Skye. Has Ryker’s youth come to haunt him—as if he hasn’t suffered enough by the hands of his parents?
“He was a curse to anyone who loved him—his parents, his grandfather, and now Dakota and Skye.”
I can’t wait to see where this series will go. I loved the characters, the angst, the chemistry, mystery, suspense, danger, and passion. The story has dominance and submission, with some discipline and explicit sex scenes, in and out of Eternal Eros. I’ve marked my calendar for the next book.
This is a remarkably captivating read where the characters were so very well written along with the actual plot of the story, I assure you that like myself you will find that once you begin reading this story you will not be able to put down till you reach the end and discover the end. Dakota is in need of help and the man that is able to do this so that it makes a difference is Brady and although at times she may not enjoy it or even appreciate it he knows that he has to step if for the best and is more than man enough to take her on and keep her safe. The time the two spend together soon shows her that Brady is so very much the man she needs in her life he is strong willed and will not stand any nonsense and the way in which he loves and cares for his daughter shows her the type of man he is and she yearns for the same. He may be a bad boy but with every touch and spoken word she knows he is her bad boy and that her heart has already made its mind up but how will he feel about this, she will simply have to wait and see. I voluntarily received and review an Advanced Reader Copy I thoroughly enjoyed the book and look forward to reading any future publications; keep up all the great writing.
I absolutely loved this book. I think I have a new favourite by Anya Summers. Ryker is the bad boy at Club Eros and at singles night gets paired with Dakota. Dakota is a single mom and one night is all she wants to give the commitment-phobe dom, but Ryker has other plans. Meeting Dakota's daughter while checking up on Dakota, Ryker is not the only one totally smitten. Of course there is trouble on the horison as Skye's father unexpectedly sues for custody putting Dakota in a total emotional spin. Ryker steps up as her and Skye's rock. And he did and amazing job!
I loved Ryker and Skye's interactions and the caring way he was with both Dakota and Skye. Ryker grew as a character through his interactions with Dakota and little bit. I truely felt for him when Dakota kicked his a$$ to the curb as a less than stellar history was unfairly brought to light. We get a very satisfactory HEA, though.
Well written with good heart amid the more heated scenes in the book.

A steamy, second chance, single parent, fake fiance contemporary romance.
Dakota is the personal assisstant to Gabe Ryan, owner of Eternal Eros night club. She has been working for him since before the birth of her daughter, Skye. At one of the club's events she is paired with club bad boy, Ryker. They share a steamy night together, but are drawn to wanting more. However in Dakota's life Skye comes first. Skye takes to Ryker instantly, calling him Bear. Just when things are working well for the pair, Dakota receives a court summons from Brian, her ex and Skye's biological father. What does Brian want and why? What does Ryker want? Who is Ryker really? A steamy, intense story that proves a mother's love overcomes all obstacles and a loving parent does not need to be related by blood.
