Sinfully Mine (Lessons with the Dom #2) by Kendall Ryan [Review]


She was forbidden.

I didn’t care.

As my best friend’s little sister, Macey Hale was off-limits, but the girl was tempting as sin and forbidden as fuck. I wish I could say that stopped me. I wish I could tell you I behaved like a gentleman.

I didn’t.

When she waltzes back into my life with that same spark I fell for, looking every bit the beautiful woman I knew she’d grow into, I have to force myself to remember I’m different from the man she once knew. I’m colder. Harder. And for good reason.
With my heart on lockdown and my hands aching to touch her, I set out to prove that I can keep myself in check this time.

No strings. No attachments.
And definitely no falling for her again.

Sinfully Mine is a standalone and is part of the Lessons with the Dom series. It’s no secret I love Kendall Ryan. I love her books because it’s always, steamy, sweet, sometimes taboo, short and easy. Whenever I pick up her books, it always leaves a smile on my face.

The first book, The Gentleman Mentor was about Brielle and Hale. Sinfully Mine is about Hale’s little sister, Macey and Hale’s best friend, Reece. I love a good older brother’s best friend book and Sinfully Mine was no exception.

Years ago Reece and Macey had a fling. They were each other’s first loves (sort of). Young and inexperienced they fooled around. Reece understands he can never have Macey. You can’t mack on your friend’s sister, it’s just wrong. But the heart wants what it wants. Macey wants to go to college and Reece doesn’t stop her. Thus, they part ways.

Now, Macey is back. She doesn’t have a job and she just left her cheating ex-boyfriend. She’s in a runt and she wants to let off some steam. She goes to Reece for help. I love Macey and Reece’s dynamic. I love that Macey is kind of finding herself again and she wants to be adventurous in bed. Reece and Macey still have lingering feelings for each other, but Reece knows he can’t stir anything up with Macey. She’s his mate’s sister.

Macey knows what kind of guy Reece is. She understands what she is asking for. She wants a no strings attached relationship and by relationship, she wants lessons in what Reece does best. What does Reece do? Well he dominates, in bed. I wouldn’t call this book overly into the BDSM scene. Kendall Ryan does warn you and let you know it’s very mild and I was perfectly fine with that.  I still blushed after reading it.

I liked how much Reece cared for Macey, but he guards his heart tightly and so he acts distant and cold. To be honest, it just makes me want him even more. He offers Macey three lessons, nothing less and nothing more.

I also liked how we still get glimpses of Brielle and Hale. I still love them, but wait, we also get a little glimpse of Oliver, which will be in the next book! I am very excited!

Macey and Reece try to work out the confusing situation, but in the mean time the steam is off the chart. Reece knows how to bring on the kink. Like I said, I love these kinds of books, simply for what they are. They are steamy, sweet and short. Everything I want. If you are a fan of the author or the series, you will not be disappointed.

“What do you think you’re doing?” I find her in my closet, down on her knees and rummaging through a black duffel bag that just happens to hold all my sex toys. Apparently she did see this when she cleaned up.

“Ah, here we go.” Her fingers close around a generously sized flesh-colored vibrating dildo. “You won’t do the job? Well, I have a feeling this baby will.” She waves it in the air like she’s found the damn golden ticket. Then she rises to her feet and smiles sweetly at me.
For the love of God, this woman does not fight fair. She never has. “Where do you think you’re going with that?”

“Probably my bed, then the shower.” A line creases her forehead. “Do you have spare batteries for this thing? It might be a long night.”

“No way. Not happening. Give me the toy, Macey.” I reach out a hand, my voice as stern as the set of my jaw, my fingers barely avoiding crushing the crystal tumbler in my other hand.

A slow smile uncurls on her mouth. “Why, Reece Jackson, are you jealous?” She eyes the toy in her hand and then lets her gaze slip seductively down to the crotch of my pants.

If she really thinks that toy’s size has me feeling insecure, she’s insane. Certifiably. “You really don’t remember, do you?” Now I’m the one smiling. She’ll be in for a pleasant surprise later.

“I remember everything. I remember how you always made me keep my underwear on, and that I never actually saw you”—her gaze flicks downward—”down there. I only felt you with my hand, and since I had nothing to base it on, I assumed all guys were like that.”

“Well, in that case, you’ll be sorely disappointed with this toy.” I snatch the dildo from her hand and toss it back in the open bag.

“What do you think you’re doing?” she asks, planting a hand on her hip. “You left me hanging at the restaurant.”

“And you will stay like that until I say so.”
