Met Her Match by Sierra Cartwright

Highly trained Mira Araceli can hold her own in the toughest parts of the world, but not, it seems, against her secret crush, Torin Carter. She’d fallen for her Hawkeye instructor years before, and to him, she’d been just another recruit; fresh, green, idealistic.

Torin, with his dark Irish good looks and fierce temper, doesn’t want a partner, any partner, and especially not Mira. But assignments are assignments, and he takes his responsibilities seriously. So when the beautifully submissive Mira crawls into his bedroom, a leather belt between her teeth, he calls on all his resolve to send her away.

Unsatisfied, Mira ups the stakes and finds another dom to play with at Dark Haven. Beyond furious, Torin storms into Master Xavier’s club and claims his rights to dominate Mira. For the first time in her life, she’s met her match.

Note: This story was previously released in the Doms of Dark Haven anthology.

This was a really sexy little story. While I liked the IDEA behind the story, I felt like it left quite a bit to be desired.

There was a LOT of repetition in the book (i.e. the same phrase used repeatedly like the reader couldn't remember what was said on the page before) which really was annoying and took away from the story.

Also, I felt like the characters were underdeveloped and were just thrown together for BDSM-ish sex. Their movements were jerky and they jumped from being in one place to another (like hand placement or where in the room they were) that I'd have to read a few lines over again to figure out what had just happened.

All that being said I appreciate that it was a short story that was likely just meant to be a sexy little read so I tried to take it for what it was and not look deeper than surface level.

This is part of a series, and whilst it could be read on its own and enjoyed, it would be so much better as part of the whole.

It is a short, sharp, and satisfying read. Sometimes it takes a jolt to realise what you want, sometimes it takes more than one ... the D/s dynamic is interesting, due in part to their natures, but also due to their work relationship. I thought that the dilemma and the decisions were well portrayed, and the pushing certainly led to some hot scenes. All the Hawkeye team are hot and demanding, so don't be surprised that this duo is too.

Ms. Cartwright once again delivers a story with some punch and plenty of heat.

I love Sierra Cartwright! She certainly knows her way around a BDSM novel/novella. Met Her Match is everything I want in a quick erotic read! I've enjoyed the Hawkeye series immensely and this installment doesn't disappoint. Sexy alpha Dom, Torin, never wanted a partner in business or in his personal life. Preferring an endless stream of different women to play with, Torin never thought about commitment. But when Hawkeye's security team insists he work with a partner, pairing him with the sexy, smart, Mira that idea flies out the proverbial window. Mira is wicked, wanton and exotic. A natural submissive with a strong backbone and quick wit, she tests everything Torin thought he wanted out of life. Mira has her own doubts about this professional and personal relationship. Can she give up her control to a man? Especially to one as unyielding as Torin, who will not tolerate being topped from the bottom? Mira does know she wants Torin, to work beside her as her partner and to dominate her like no one else has or could before in the bedroom.

The read was fast paced, hot as hades and everything I'd hoped for from Cartwright! Perfect summer novella!
