For as long as she could remember, Becca dreamed of a dominant man to take her in hand, and Zac, the handsome Marine she met at her sister’s wedding, filled the role with aplomb… for a weekend. Then the fling came to an end, Zac went off to war and died for his country, and Becca learned she carried a child who would be born without a father.
Seven years later, Becca has done her best to move on and forget about Zac… until the day she walks into her kitchen to find the man she believed she would never see again locked in mortal combat with her son’s nanny, and realizes everything she thought she knew about Zac was a lie.
Like all Black Ops agents, Zac doesn’t exist in any government record. His life is a series of deadly missions, and relationships of any kind are unsanctioned. But he keeps one secret. He watches over Becca, the beautiful daughter of a rogue agent, and Parker, the six-year-old boy he fathered that fateful weekend. When he spots a known assassin in their apartment posing as a nanny, he’s forced to reveal himself and take them to safety… whether Becca likes it or not.
While Becca may have enjoyed his dominance once, bending her to his will again may not be quite so easy. He is determined to keep her safe, however, and if a long, hard spanking is required, he is more than willing to oblige. Having Becca over his knee rekindles more than his passion, though; even when the immediate danger has passed, he finds it much more difficult to “ghost out” on his family again. Must he resign himself to protecting those he loves from afar, or can he find a way to be the man Becca needs and longs for, the man who is worthy of her submission and her love?

Becca spends an amazing weekend with a “marine” Zac, knowing she won’t see him again only to wind up pregnant. Seven years later, after him supposedly being dead he turns up unexpectedly and swears she’s in danger. Becca must learn to trust him and let him into their lives. Zac needs to keep his family safe and will do whatever it takes to make it happen.
Not what I was expecting, but an enjoyable read. There was parts I felt off and just couldn’t connect with it.
I loved Parker!! He’s such a smart kid, brave, loving, caring, daring and totally cool. I’d have pee’d my pants if I was put in his situation, he rocks! And I totally want his sneakers 😉
I didn’t connect with Becca OR Zac. Becca just didn’t have a backbone at all, everything scared her and she was always crying. Yet she loved getting a rough, hard spanking. There was soooooooo much spanking! It even made my butt tingle a time or two, but she seemed to enjoy it.
Zac is a ghost, part of a special black-ops team kept under the radar. That’s still no excuse for leading Becca and Parker to believe he’s dead! I thought it was good of him to fight to be in their lives but it was a little too late and my attitude soured towards him as soon as he re-appeared. At least he’s willing to die for them!
There was definitely some good parts that made my eyes wet and giggle aloud causing some funny stares to come my way but there was also some rough parts and not enough connection between the main characters. AND there was too many secrets, it just kept me frustrated.
