Synopsis: Mitch Burnett wishes he hadn’t promised his neighbor he’d look in on his niece (an Amish widow) while she’s house sitting for the summer. He’s sure she’ll be a prudish pain in the ass. But Hannah is not what he expects. Her full curves, pretty face and innocent demeanor take him off guard. To keep his lust in check, he keeps his distance. However, he’s unprepared for her unexpected attraction to him. The closeness of his thickly muscled body brings on sensations Hannah has rarely felt. She brazenly asks Mitch to have sex with her, thinking a one-night stand will put an end to the stimulating feelings. Unable to resist, Mitch tables his more dominant urges for a night with Hannah. But what starts out as a one-time fling turns into a steamy affair. Each time Hannah embraces something new, Mitch discovers he wants more until he finally introduces her to his dominant practices. However, an assault on Hannah and a terrible loss make her question her behavior and send her running back to her roots to find the answers.
My Review: Coming into the modern world as a widow from the Amish lifestyle, Hannah's head is spinning. She is convinced that she won't find love or longing again as she prepares to housesit to break away for awhile. When the hunky neighbor from across the street comes into her life she discovers a new feeling, lust. This feeling leads her to wanting to know more about Mitch and dive into his world.
Mitch doesn't think much about Hannah when he agrees to watch over her for his neighbor. When he meets her lust sets in but he tries to rise above knowing this prudish woman won't understand his needs. What happens though when the wanting of the heart is stronger than what the mind says not to do?
Hannah & The Dom Next Door proves to be a story fully entwined with love, heartache, desire, and the want to move forward. I really enjoyed this story because it takes a strong author to tie in BDSM with an Amish upbringing. Wane gives us the hesitancy from someone not involved in the lifestyle as they tiptoe across the water into the territory of something new. Hannah & The Dom Next Door will definitely be a reread for me as I am sure I will learn something new each time I read it. If you haven't read Wane yet, this one is a must read.
