Book Review - Committed by Sidney Bristol

My Thoughts

Damien and Poppy meet at a BDSM retreat and spend a seductive night together (hottest use of a ladder ever!) before he is called away for his job. Damien is a DEA agent working a huge case trying to take down drug lord Emilio who is out for revenge over the death of his wife. Poppy is a social worker who helps families who are victims of abuse. She grew up in a commune and is a Disney princesses collector. She lightens Damien a bit. Their constant struggle is Damien working so much. From that first weekend when he left her so abruptly with just a note forward into their relationship, Poppy has felt that he would never put her as a priority. Unfortunately that isn't their biggest problem. Her life is in danger due to her connect with Damien though as Emilio targets her to get even with him. 

I loved how the romance and the thriller parts of this story just blended so well. Neither one overpowered the other and both were exciting. I loved Damien as he was so in tune with Poppy and super creative (again referring to ladder). I also adored Poppy and her affection for fairy tales and princesses.

I give Committed 4 hearts!

About the Book

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.
