From USA Today Michele writes with such vivid style that she lifts the reader into the story to participate in the delicious, wicked fantasy.
From Coffee Time Romance Lydia and Wilder garnered affection from the first page. The love between the master and sub leaps off the page and insinuates itself in the reader's heart. I never felt left behind because of this being the fourth book in the series but instead felt a part of the story. I loved Wanting Wilder and put Ms. Zurlo on my list of authors to look for.
Fate brought them together, but then it ripped them apart.
Eight years later, Wilder is still wishing for more time with the dark-skinned beauty he held in his arms for a weekend, and Lydia is still searching for a man worthy enough to be called "Master."
At Oasis headquarters, they're in the business of making dreams come true. Any wish they agree to fulfill means making conditions perfect for soul mates to connect. So when their new wish coordinator is perfect in every way but one--she's never had her deepest desires fulfilled--the management at Oasis requires her to make a wish. Only Lydia doesn't want to risk her heart. So she makes a partial wish. She wants to serve a Dom without the complications of a romantic relationship.
Wilder Burke, son of the Oasis founders, is just the man for the job. Years of accumulated misunderstandings means he must settle for the little bit she's willing to give. But when Lydia pushes him too far and he violates the terms of their agreement, he knows he's lost her for good.
Will Wilder fight for Lydia, or will he let fate tear them apart once more?
"Ms. Zurlo, your Safe Word: Oasis series is a real treat to read." --Two Lips Reviews
"The chemistry between Mina and Everett is explosive." --Kinky Book Reviews
"Sweet and emotional, without losing the dripping hotness factor...I loved seeing Mina grow as a character. She doesn't back down. Kudos for showing that submissive doesn't mean doormat. The BDSM is physically on the milder side, but emotionally intense. This series is getting better and better...It's a must read!"--Under the Covers Book Blog
Mina has sheltered her heart for so long. Can she learn to open it for love?
Mina hadn't meant to stay in Vermont. She'd planned to collect her mother and move across the country so they could begin a new life. When Everett Burke asked her out, she didn't mean for it to turn into anything serious, but she fell hard.
Everett had nursed a crush on Mina for years. When the strong, proud woman turned out to be a virgin--and emotionally vulnerable--he vowed to take things slowly. That included easing her into a D/s relationship slowly, only speaking frankly when he felt she was ready.
When Mina discovers his deception and what Ever really wants from her, she breaks it off and flees to the other side of the country. Then one snowy morning, her car careens off the road. Rescued by the one man she dreaded seeing again, she found out she'd run for all the wrong reasons.
Desperate, she submits a wish to Oasis. She wants to know one thing: Can they put the past behind them to build a future together?
