Five Weeks in December

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Two years ago tragedy took Harry Everett's confidence as a man and as a Dom. And while he's managed to continue to live his life, what he hasn't been able to do is venture back into the lifestyle that used to be as much a part of him as breathing. The trust he once had in his instincts is broken and for the first time in his life, this alpha man is lost and without answers. So when a friend suggests perhaps a professional submissive could help him, Harry's reluctantly willing to try. He doesn't hold out much hope, though. Until she shows up on his doorstep and turns everything upside down.

A professional submissive for the past seven years, December doesn't belong to any one master. And she likes it that way. But when her best friend’s Dom asks December to help his friend, she can't resist the chance to really do some good. 

Here's a man who doesn't just want someone to flog - he needs what she can provide and December is determined to help. She's prepared for this to be tough, but what she's not prepared for is how Harry makes her feel. It’s obvious from the beginning that he’s not like any other client and this is not just a job – for either of them.

She’s got five weeks to help him heal.

He’s got five weeks to learn how to keep her… or how to let her go.

ARC given by NetGalley and Painted Sky Press for an honest review.

I believe I have found my 2014 Mr. Darcy, meek but domineering, flat mood but colorful commentary and all around hottie. Reading Five weeks of December was so intriguing.

In this book, you see the main character, Harry, wanting to have some control back in his life again. He wants to feel again, be the Dom he knows he once was. When his friend suggests he obtain a professional submissive, he balks at the idea originally. But after thinking about it for a while, he is on board with retaining the “professional” service. Henry is very straightforward; he has no tack in the beginning of this story.

As soon as he sees her for the first time, it is a Winter Wonderland for Henry. He is in awe of her beauty and how she moves.

December is very vibrant and aware of herself. Her profession allows her to be dominate when talking to Henry but submissive in all other areas. In the beginning of the book, she believes she has to keep Henry at a distance, because of how physically attracted she is to him when she sees him.

December has been hurt in the past with a relationship she believed to be her Happily Ever After, because of this she closes off a certain part of herself while she is working. This is to prevent from being hurt again. She is detailed in her submissive process with Henry and her goal is to help Henry for five weeks, to discover himself and his needs again.

Once December opens this door for Henry, he dominates, in more than one way. His sheer control sets December on fire.  She feels something she hadn’t wanted to feel. Secure.

The erotica in this book will defiantly melt the snow, but can it melt December and Henry’s hearts and have them have a Happy Winter Ever After?

Happy reading!
