More by Lea Griffith Blog Tour

Sure to please fans of erotic romance, Lea Griffith’s All or Nothing series returns to the deepest places of longing and obsession.

Three years ago, Ruthie Copeland ran away from an erotic connection that shook her to the core. Now she realizes that Tobias Edwards is the only man who can give her what she craves. Determined to reignite the dangerous flame between them, Ruthie seeks him out at The Underground—and discovers a changed man. Though Ruthie, blind since childhood, cannot see the scars on Toby’s face that forced him to seal off his heart, her gentle submission eases the pain of her body’s only Master.

Toby stopped feeling after Ruthie left, stopped expecting to find release in meaningless dominance play. Now that Ruthie has taken their dance to the limits of ecstasy, Toby’s lost in a haze of sensation. Yet the enemies that left him disfigured may reappear at any moment. Ruthie’s love gives him the strength to face those who seek to break him, but Toby fears he must leave her to save her life.

More is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

He walked around her slowly, his steps a dance of seduction. Ruthie shivered and he laughed, low and sexy.

“I don’t think you know what you’re asking for, Ruthie. I don’t know that you understand what I want to do to your body, to your soul.” His voice was rough and infinitely deep.

Still he circled her, a taunt. This was about control, dominance. His intent tingled over her skin, brushing her mind and softening her body.

So many things she wanted him to do to her. She could only imagine the places he would take her—the heights she could scale in his arms. He already played her body expertly, but the thought of going even higher through a Dom/sub dynamic? She swallowed hard and then stilled when Tobias trailed a single finger down her throat to the tops of her breasts.

Candace had introduced Ruthie to floggers, whips, crops, hoods, and clamps. As Ruthie stroked the leather of the flogger, her stomach had somersaulted and she’d been forced to breathe through her desire. Her friend had laughed knowingly. That’s how she’d finally made her decision—touching the flogger, she’d known it could bring her peace in the hands of the right man.

Tobias was that man. She wanted the thud of his flogger on her back, her thighs, and her breasts. She craved the feel of his hand, or his paddle, on her ass. She needed the sting of nipple clamps, the brush of his ropes. She had to have Tobias deep inside her body, taking her apart and putting her back together. She wanted to fly. Ruthie desired all the things she couldn’t see but needed with a bone-shredding intensity. This was the beginning.

He squatted in front of her, his woodsy scent soothing her even as his heat enticed. “Do you know what I want, Ruthie?”

Her mind quieted. It was eerie how everything inside of her responded to his tone. She remained silent.

He grabbed her chin and lifted her face. “I asked you a question.”

“You didn’t give me permission to speak,” she stammered.

“I never told you that you couldn’t,” he said softly. “You have to know the rules he plays by, Ruthie, before you present yourself to a Dom.”

“Not just any Dom . . . you,” she responded heatedly.

He stood then and cursed. “You don’t know what you’re asking of me, Ruthie.”

She quelled her fears and doubts, silencing them with a sharp command. She needed Tobias. It was that simple. “I know what I’m asking for, Tobias. I’m asking for you—all the pieces you’ve kept from me. All the things you’ve hidden because you think I can’t handle your lusts.”

He sighed. Capitulation? It was a rarity, but she mourned the loss of her sight at that moment—she’d give nearly everything she owned to stare into his eyes right then.

“Ruthie, you’re precious to me,” he began and then stopped.

The fear returned, vicious and cutting, doing its best to erode her confidence. “I want everything or nothing at all.”

Even though she whispered, her declaration was loud and she heard the indrawn hiss of his breath. “Ruthie. I can’t do this right now.”

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I love Ruthie and Tobias. Their chemistry is amazing and I would have liked to see more of them and less of the drama with the enemies from Tobias’s past. Some parts of the book were really good and others kind of bored me but overall it was an ok read.

Characters: The characters were well written and believable.
Sex: Yes
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: BDSM/Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

Ruthie Copeland had her heart ripped out three years ago, now she is back home to claim what is hers and more. Tobias Edwards has spent the last three years barely surviving because the guilt he feels for sending Ruthie away is eating him alive. While Tobias is fighting his feelings for her, Ruthie is gonna make him see that he is her more and she is his more. This story has it all, love, loss, pain, a little BDSM and suspense. I love this series and can't wait for MORE!

“I want everything with you, Ruthie.”

Tobias Edwards is a hard man to love and Ruthie knows that first hand. He pushed her away three years ago and like a fool, she ran. Now she's back in Atlanta and she wants nothing more than to prove to Tobias that's she here for one reason and one reason only. She's wants what's hers – and that's him.

The author did an outstanding job of describing Tobias' needs as a dominant and how that domination would play out in his relationship with Ruthie. Ruthie is an untrained submissive who longs to give Tobias what he needs so that he can give her what she needs. Tobias' need for control scares him and he doesn't want to do anything that will cause Ruthie to leave him.

Steamy romance, familial drama and close friends all play a large part in making this such a successful story.

This is the second in the series, but can definitely be read as a standalone.

I really enjoyed this book, it was hot, the plot was good and the writing was strong. Ruthie is blind, and the language is used so consistently and cleverly to emphasise that she is lightness and Tobias is dark. Add in the Dom/sub growing dynamic and the references to sight/seeing, and this story builds layer by layer. I enjoyed the side characters, both the women who support and encourage Ruthie, and the guys who in spite of questionable business dealings are loyal to each other, and protective of the women. There are some clever twists too. I'm looking forward to the next in the series – where Dante and Savannah take centre stage.

Lea Griffith began sneaking to read her mother’s romance novels at a young age. She cut her teeth on the greats: McNaught, Woodiwiss, and Garwood. A firm believer that love makes the world go round, she still consumes every romance book she can put her hands on, but now she writes her own.

Lea lives with her husband and three teenage daughters in rural Georgia. Two dogs, a cat, and a beta fish named Coddy George complete a family that is always in motion. When not working at the EDJ, she’s usually at her keyboard, using every spare second to write. Science fiction, paranormal and contemporary romance, oh my! Nothing is off-limits when it comes to her writing.
