Book Blitz & Review ~ Treasure Me, A SAFE Security Novel, by Michele Zurlo


Blurb

Relocating to Kansas City with David and working for SAFE Security was everything Autumn thought she wanted…except that the job isn’t what she thought it would be, and her past seems to have a stranglehold on her emotions.

When Autumn takes a case without informing the rest of SAFE Security, she finds herself in hot water when secret victory blows up in her face. Her impulsive mistake almost costs their lives—and she soon finds herself jobless. Reeling from this failure and the way it’s damaged her relationships with David and the team, she vows to start fresh—with a new name and in a new city. Unfortunately a local crime boss has other ideas.

In the midst of a mission, David must rush back to try to stop Autumn from leaving—only to find that Autumn and her sister have disappeared. Can he find them in time to save them and his relationship with the woman he treasures?

In Treasure Me, Michele Zurlo delivers a sexy, action-packed adventure tale full of emotional twists and turns.

Warnings: Spanking, D/s, Dom who puts his foot in his mouth, bratty sub, fingerpainting



Excerpt

“Autumn.” He infused the warning with his Dom Voice, and it sent shivers of desire straight to my core.

“Oh, Sir. I’m already on my knees.” Picking a lock. I left that part off because he knew exactly what I was doing. It took a lot of effort, but I concentrated on the soft metallic sounds of the tumblers locking into place.

“If I was there right now, I’d spank you for being a smartass.”

Oh, but that man knew exactly what to say to make my pussy wet. As a sometimes-SAM, I needed to run off at the mouth while he put me in my place. When the stress of life got to me, I would call him names and goad him as he spanked or flogged me. He’d send me to a place past all my inhibitions where it was safe for me to break down and let it all out.

“Are you in my office yet?”

The last tumbler set, and I opened his door. “I’m closing your door right now. Do you want me in your chair or on the couch?”

He groaned, and I knew I had successfully distracted him from his original purpose. “Take off all your clothes and bend over my desk with your legs spread. Move my chair out of the way. That’s where I want you.”

This was even better. I preferred to have him in control, and he was letting me get away with entirely too much right now. I set to work wrestling out of the cute green dress he’d surprised me with last weekend. He liked me to wear colors that matched my green eyes, and I found myself choosing clothing and accessories with his tastes in mind.

As if he read my mind, he cleared his throat. “I’m going to punish you when I get home, Sugar. You know better than to try to manipulate me.”

“Sir, I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t at least try, and then you would fall out of love with me.” Yeah, my convoluted logic was one of the things he found attractive. Or so I hoped.

He laughed, the sexy vocal caress washing over my nerves and urging them into submission. “Perish the thought. Are you in position?”

I bent over and rested my bare chest on his cold desk. “Yes, Sir. My nipples are hard, and my pussy is wet. Are you naked also?”


Review

Whether you've read Re/Leased or not, you will be able to follow this story as a standalone.

Treasure Me focuses on Autumn settling into a life in Kansas City with David, her lover and her Dom. She's in a new job, coming to terms with her past, getting to know her long lost family, and finding out who she is. It's not an easy path, but with David and Jessica by her side, she slowly becomes the woman she always wanted to be.

I really enjoyed this thrilling roller coaster ride and the passion contained between the pages is electric. I loved David's sincere attempts to help Autumn come to terms with everything that she has learned over the past several months. His love for her really knows no bounds.

Autumn, or Brea as she is called in the end, makes some mistakes along the way to self discovery that not only puts her life in danger but those she loves as well. I love how she doesn't back down to anything, right or wrong, when she makes a commitment she's all in. I fell in love with her heart and soul.

The love between David and Autumn is undeniable and no matter what either do, there is nothing that can tear them apart. And believe, there is a lot that could be the catalyst to break them.

I really enjoyed this story, getting to know Brea, Autumn, more after Re/Leased is sensational and I adore David. I also loved the other members of the SAFE Security team and can't wait to see what is going to happen next in this series.


About The Author

I’m Michele Zurlo, author of over 20 romance novels. I write contemporary and paranormal, BDSM and mainstream—whatever it takes to give my characters the happy endings they deserve. I’m not half as interesting as my characters. My childhood dreams tended to stretch no further than the next book in my to-be-read pile, and I aspired to be a librarian so I could read all day. I ended up teaching middle school, so that fulfilled part of my dream. Some words of wisdom from an inspiring lady had me tapping out stories on my first laptop, so in the evenings, romantic tales flow from my fingertips. I’m pretty impulsive when it comes to big decisions, especially when it’s something I’ve never done before. Writing is just one in a long line of impulsive decisions that turned out to showcase my great instincts. Find out more at www.michelezurloauthor.com or @MZurloAuthor.
