Marked by Jaymie Holland

Marked

Synopsis via Miss Holland's website:

Flight attendant Tracie Bell's career has her always on the go. Too busy flying from one airport to the next, having already learned the hard lesson about not mixing business with pleasure, Tracie is content with her dark dream lover fantasies and memories of submission past. As for the men in her life, well, they might as well get frequent flier miles for as often as they take flight, never seeming to stick around when she really needs them. It's not that she's bitter about it, but she knows it's inevitable that they always take off and leave her.

But Tracie is not just a play-with-anyone kind of woman. She craves submitting to a Dom and being owned and used for pleasure. Approaching the gate for a pickup flight to Hawaii, Tracie finds herself begrudgingly attracted to not only one but two of her first class passengers, Lucas and Kane.

Lucas Connor and Kane Allen hadn't been sure they were ready to entertain seeing someone again after losing the woman they loved to a violent act more than a year ago. Seeing Tracie's beautiful features blush with her mutual attraction was all it took for them to open to the idea. She's intelligent, caring, sweet, and oh-so-submissive. Problem is she's too skittish to involve herself in any kind of relationship, especially with two men. Even after a night of incredible passion, she runs.

Now Lucas and Kane must show her she's made her mark on their hearts. Forever and always.

Warning: This book is for mature readers, 18 years and older.

I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Miss Holland for the opportunity.

BDSM: According to the Urban Dictionary, this stands for Bondage and Discipline, Dominance and Submission, Sadism and Masochism. Just the fact that this book is about BDSM should tell you it is a page scorching story. But I have to admit that the "knowledge" I have of this subject is not the true definition of the word.What I haveare ideas and jokes that are passed around by people who don't know a thing about the lifestyle. And truth be told, it is a practice that is considered outside of "normal".
While this book is a hot story about sex, it is also a story about the relationship between the people who enjoy this type of lifestyle.
Miss Holland does a wonderful job of writing the story in a mature and tasteful manner. I enjoyed the interaction and developing relationship between the three main characters. The characters related to each other in a way that showed how true affection can help each person achieve any type of lifestyle that is desired.
Do I know if the story is true to life? No. But I do know that I had a hard time putting it down and wanted the story to keep going even when it was finished. Miss Holland has a gift for creating a world that the reader can fall into. Her descriptors help the reader develop a picture in their mind, but does not bog the them down. The story flows like a refreshing stream, swift and clear.
Can you give a book more than 5 stars?? I definitely would!!
Marked is a book that is a MUST READ for book lovers of contemporary romance. One you read one of Miss Holland's books, you will be hooked!
