**:~~ Dominic (Cerberus MC Book 4) by Marie James ~~:**

My Review

4.5 Stars

I haven't read any of the other Cerberus books but was able to read and follow this story without any problems. It also doesn't seem to contain (many) spoilers for previous books, which is a big plus. Mak has been the victim of sexual abuse, if this may be a trigger you need to be aware. There are some dream/recollection scenes but nothing too graphic.

Dominic isn't a member of the MC so they don't feature heavily in this story. However Mak is the sister of President from another MC so there is still an MC feel to the book. I like that the Cerberus MC aren't typical 'MC Bikers' but are all ex-military and therefore the club is different to most - no drugs/gun running etc. There is no struggle here with how can the hero be a hero when he is a criminal.

Dominic is a complete douche at times with how he treats Mak, but at least he realises this fact even if he doesn't know how to rectify the problem. If Mak wasn't in fear for her life I am sure she would have left him on more than one occasion. However Dominic makes Mak feel safe, something she hasn't known in a long time and gradually she opens up to him and lets him into her life.

The chemistry between Dominic and Mak in the book is intense, and whilst he has some Dominant tendencies any BDSM is very mild and certainly consensual. I really enjoyed this story, the fear and desperation Mak felt was very well portrayed and her emotional journey brought tears to my eyes more than once. Dominic

I was almost disappointed with the resolution to what had made Mak run away and seek help from Dominic, but in some ways it was probably more realistic than the alternatives. It just seemed a big build up and then it was over and done. However this allowed the focus to remain on the connection between Dominic and Mak, and whether Dominic would realise he could love again.

The plot is well thought through, there are some nice sub-plots, the characters are believable and rounded, the writing flows nicely and the dialogue is easy to follow. I knew I liked Marie James having read 'We Said Forever'. This is a VERY different style of story to that but it is just as gripping and emotion filled and is just as good a book.

Title: Dominic
Series: Cerberus MC #4
Author: Marie James
Genre: Contemporary Romance/MC
Release Date: May 11, 2017


Dominic Anderson knows exactly what he wants in life: simplicity, safety, and solidarity with his brothers. He’s vowed to spend each day living his life exactly how he chooses since the day his wife betrayed him and his four year military career turned into twenty.

Returning home after retirement from the Marines, he’s traded the sand in the Middle East for that of the New Mexico desert, Humvees for a motorcycle, and the comradery of men in uniform for the occasional woman at his feet.

Life was perfect until Makayla “Poison” Evans, Renegade MC Princess, knocked on his door, bruises on her face, neck, and arms, and no money to pay the cab driver. Pink hair, perfect body, and a mouth that Dom yearned to teach a million lessons, Mak asks more from him than he’s conceded to a woman in decades.

She needs his help, his protection, and against his better judgment, she expects him to keep her secrets. Only her secrets are deadly, dangerous, and have the potential to start a war between two MCs.

At what point does safeguarding a woman become a betrayal to the men Dominic calls his family? More importantly, can he get back the sanctity of his home once Makayla is no longer in the picture, or will he be forever tainted by her poison?
