Lucas and Katherine enter into the perfect arrangement to fulfill their sexual needs, but what happens when their hearts get in the way?GoodReads
Shy, awkward receptionist Katherine Sierra wants to explore her sexually submissive side. Although new to the BDSM world, she’s eager to learn. When she attends a play party and submits an application to one of the most experienced Doms in the room, she has no idea what she’s gotten herself into.
Successful businessman and hardcore Dominant Lucas Cain knows his way around a playroom and doesn’t normally take on brand new subs. He’s apprehensive about training someone so innocent, but the more time he spends with Katherine the more intrigued he becomes. She may be everything he’s been searching for.
But when Lucas requests that Colin, his friend and mentor, join them in the playroom for an evening of fun, it just might change everything.
Has Lucas broken his own rule and fallen in love with his sub?

Even though Katherine Sierra might not have much sexual experience, she knows that she needs a Dom to fulfill her needs. Tagging along with a friend to a BDSM play party Kat sees Lucas Cain, an experienced Dominant who has every woman in the room vying for his attention and his vast skills. When she hears that he is looking for a new partner, Kat submits her application to him and is surprised when she received a request for a meeting.
Lucas Cain, a prominent business man, has been a Dominant in the BDSM world for the last decade, he knows what he wants and he knows what he doesn’t want, and training a young women new to the scene is definitely not something he planned to be doing, but after meeting Katherine he can’t seem to turn her away and her tutoring is soon all Luke can think about. When a strictly sexual relationship begins to be more though, will Luke break his own rules and make a place for Katherine in his life?
Be My Everything was a sweet and sensual read. The relationship between Katherine and Lucas developed gradually at a believable pace starting as something purely physical, fulfilling each other’s needs, but ending up as so much more. Luke’s character was dark and intense, definitely a man that will wet your panties with his playroom and dominating personality!
However, I wasn’t fully able to connect with the characters because I didn’t know enough about them. They had no background for me to help understand why they lead the life they do today and to back up the choices they made. I went back and forth between a 3.5 and a 4 because of that, as a character’s ability to cohere to me is pretty important in my reading, but the rest of the story flowed so well I’m sticking with a 4. The author smoothly transitions between time periods, putting together a 6 month time span into a little over a hundred pages.
The BDSM themes were light, nothing too intense, just enough to build the story and relationship off of. In essence, Be My Everything is a love story. It has a nice little twist at the end that pushed the story to happily ever after that I enjoyed. A great read that I’d recommend to contemporary erotica readers looking for a quick and fun read, and perfect for someone wanting to dip their toes into the BDSM genre.
