Raine Kendall has everything a woman could want…almost. Sexy, tender Dom Liam O’Neill is her knight in shining armor, but Raine keeps pinching herself. Is he too good to be true or is this growing connection one that could last a lifetime? She’s constantly torn by her abiding feelings for her commanding boss, Macen “Hammer” Hammerman, especially in the wake of the mind-blowing night he cast aside the barriers between them and ravaged every inch of her body.
Hammer, Liam’s former best friend, can’t stop coveting Raine. But Liam is determined to hold and guide the woman he loves and see if she can be the submissive of his dreams. However, he’s finding that her trust is hard won and he needs a bloody crowbar to pry open her scarred soul. So he risks everything to win her once and for all. But once he’s put his daring plan in motion, will it cost Liam his heart if he loses Raine to Hammer for good?
The emotions and relationships in The Young and The Submissive were a train wreck. Raine admits her trust issues, but Liam and Macen's are just as overwhelming. They both have unresolved trust issues from the past. Their dominant natures don't allow them to express themselves fully and they are all a mess.
The Liam and Macen are forced to work together to help Raine. Even though they're still upset with each other they want what's best for Raine.
Beck also comes into this book a lot and we learn quite a bit about him. We also learn more about Macen and his wife and a lot more about Raine's childhood. Her trust issues stem from her childhood.
Finally there are quite a few steamy scenes. Overall a great book. I really can't wait for the next book.
