“All in all, this is an awesome new series, with a nice blend of suspense and D/s.” ~Under the Covers

Saved by his Submissive is my first read by Angel Payne and the first book in her new series, The WILD Boys of Special Forces.  Garrett Hawkins has suffered each and every day since learning that his finance was killed with her medical unit a year ago.  He’s a tough, alpha Special Forces operative with a very dominant streak.  When he and his crew are called to rescue female victims of human trafficking, he gets the surprise of his life.   His beloved Sage is among the rescued.  It’s all he could have ever hoped for…but Garrett knows that he can’t hide his darker sexual side for long.  He’s a sexual Dominant and desires nothing more than to claim Sage as his submissive, but he fears how she would handle his need to master her completely.  Sage wants nothing more than to live her happily ever after with Garrett.   It’s up to her to convince him that she’s up for the challenge.

First off…..that’s one HOT cover!  Now on to the story….I love how Angel Payne was able to get such depth of emotion from her characters.  Garrett has such a tough guy exterior, but is emotionally on the brink at the beginning of this book.  We get to see how he transforms from a man lost at sea, to found but uncertain of his direction, to confident Dominant with the woman of his dreams.   Sage is a strong woman, both internally and externally.  She’s knows she can give Garrett what he wants and needs.    I wanted to knock some sense into Garrett a few times!  It takes some soul searching and intervention to get him to man up.  There is lots of action, which I loved and an AWESOME scene where the tables are turned on the captors.   Garrett and Sage have seriously explosive chemistry…he hits all the right buttons for me by being a stern, but loving Dom.  He’s not the cool, detached sort.  Thank God. The BDSM isn’t hardcore, but the D/s dynamic is explored very nicely in the context of a loving, established relationship.  It’s nice to see how a couple can grow like into their roles like this.  The characters go through hell, but it isn’t overly dark either, which I really appreciated.   I’m looking forward to meeting all of the men of Garrett’s unit, and Zeke seems to be on deck to have his story told.  All in all, this is an awesome new series, with a nice blend of suspense and D/s.

About Angel Payne

Hi there. I’m Angel: book lover, hopeless romantic, pop culture geek, shoe addict, coffee-aholic, and occasional vinophile, too.

I’ve been hooked on books since I was a kid but it all got worse in my twenties, when I discovered romances—-the hotter, the better. Growing up in Southern California, with lots of surfer-type manliness surrounded me, certainly didn’t help to assuage the need for reading about delicious alpha guys and the women who adore them. When I learned I had a knack for telling these stories too, I guess you could say I was doomed, though my path toward erotic romance novelist took a few detours via a concert-reviewing gig for my college newspaper (free show tickets…backstage passes…that was sort of a no-brainer), artist interviews for a Beverly Hills dance music mag, and a very, very bad try at a Young Adult novel (don’t ask; it’s not pretty).

These days, I still live in California, and have found an amazing alpha guy of my own who was brave enough to marry me. We live on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with our beautiful daughter and a crazy dog. I have the best life ever, and never forget to thank the Big Guy Upstairs for it, either.

I’m a 30-something medical professional by day and obsessive Crossfitter by night who’s been in love with the written word since I can remember.And that means that I read every Nancy Drew and Nancy Drew Files until I snuck Stephen King’s It from my father’s bookshelf at age 10.I was never the same… I read voraciously for years, until academic pursuits derailed me, but re-entered the fray 8 years ago when a certain teen paranormal series caught my attention.The passion back, I haven’t stopped since.When I’m not working, working out, or traipsing around for my teenage son’s hectic activity schedule, you can find me with Kindle in hand, often until the wee hours of the night.

I’m well known to be a genre hopper, who has very few hard limits.My first real romance series was J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood and she still rocks my paranormal world, along with Karen Moning’s Fever series and Joey Hill’s Vampire Queen series.That being said, you’ll often see me reading erotic romance with a BDSM focus.I’m never afraid of dark and dubious reads a la Joey Hill, Tiffany Reisz and Cari Silverwood.When genre fatigue sets in, a witty historical romance never fails to satisfy me, and Lisa Kleypasand Sarah MacLeanare my auto-buys.My favorite series of all time is Diana Gabaldon’s Outlader saga, and I will fight for Jamie Fraser to the death ;). Much to my fellow romance readers’ surprise, I also cleanse my palate with popular contemporary reads.Romantic suspense.LGBT.Western.If the writing is on, I’ll dig in.

I like when a dominant hero isn’t detached too. Sounds like a good read. Thanks for sharing!
