~Review: Committed: Drug of Desire by Sidney Bristol~

In this erotic tale of sensuality and suspense, Sidney Bristol proves that desire can be the most dangerous drug of all.

DEA Special Agent Damien Moana works hard and plays even harder. But while indulging in forbidden temptations at a private BDSM retreat, the unexpected happens: He falls under a stranger’s spell. This woman drives Damien to distraction, pushing him to the sweet boundary between pain and pleasure. When duty interrupts their heated encounter, his focus turns to catching a criminal . . . but his head is still with the seductress who ignites his deepest desires. Now Damien must choose between closing the case of his career and losing the woman of his dreams.

Poppy Mercer can’t forget the night she spent with her mystery lover. When chance brings them back together, she seizes the opportunity to again feel his masterful hands on her body. Poppy is a switch who delights in dominating a powerful man . . . and submitting to the ecstasy of his control. Outside the bedroom, however, she questions her place in Damien’s world. His obsession with hunting a ruthless drug lord puts Poppy in the line of fire. And though Damien might be able to save her from danger, salvaging what’s left of her trust is another matter.

Committed is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

Advance praise for Committed

“The relationship between Damien and Poppy gives a hot, sexy, and realistic view of kink and power exchange, along with suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat.”—Jodie Griffin, author of the Bondage & Breakfast series.

Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ ★★★★

From the moment Damien Moana spied the beautiful woman across the room he knew he needed to be up close and personal with her.  They were at a private weekend retreat for the BDSM community where anyone could partner up with whomever they pleased. Damien was determined to get her attention and have some playtime with the woman.  She reminded him of Rapunzel with her petite size and long golden blonde hair.  This affair was very discreet and names would not be exchanged only play.  In Damien’s line of word as a DEA Agent it was important to keep his personal and professional life separate. 
Poppy is looking for an adventure and hopes that she will find it at the weekend event she is attending.  When a beautiful man approaches her and indicates his interest in playing, she thinks she is in heaven.  Especially when he calls her Rapunzel everything just melts inside and makes her want to claim him as her own.  Even when she explains that she is a switch, he is still interested.  Poppy can tell that he is a true dominate and can’t believe that he would be willing to let her top him.  They discuss limits and plan how to meet each other’s needs.  Everything is wonderful and Damien makes Poppy fly but when he called away on an important case without taking time to explain the situation, Poppy thinks he may not be the one for her after all.  Even though she is broken by the way he left her, she still cannot stop thinking about the time they were together.
When Damien completes the assignment and returns to find out how his Rapunzel is, it’s to find her gone and no way to locate her.  He doesn’t have her real name and is desperate to locate her.   He has not been able to stop thinking about her since the first moment he say her.  Damien is sent into a high school to do a drug program and check on some possible students that are pushing drugs.  When one of the suspects tries to flee, Damien chases him into the school library and comes face to face with his Rapunzel.  She wants nothing to do with him and he can see how hurt she is because of the way he left her.  Damien still tries to explain and apologize to her so that can start over but she wants none of that.  At least now he knows her name and where she works.  Can Damien convince her to try again?  Will they find a way to be together and overcome the evil that is shadowing Damien?
