All fire and gunpowder need is a stray spark…
The Connaghers, Book 3
The day one of her old clients gunned down a cop, former defense attorney Vicki Connagher lost everything—her passion for justice, and her lover, Detective Elias Reyes. The dead cop’s partner.
Even though she’s following her dream to start her own fashion line, it’s tough with heartache as her only companion. Until she brings Jesse, a wandering street artist, in from a freak Texas snowstorm. His submissive flirting brings out dominant tendencies she never knew she possessed, yet she hesitates to let him take her as far and as hard as she wants to go.
Some homeless junkie in Vicki’s house? Not on Elias’s watch. Pride kept him away, but as long as Jesse is staying in Vicki’s downstairs shop, he’s staying with Vicki. On the couch, but it’s a start.
As the days go by, the three work out an uneasy alliance. But Vicki’s joy at having Elias back in her life is tempered with a growing desire to have it all. Elias in her bed, and Jesse under her command. The only question remaining is if her tough alpha cop is willing to embrace all that she is…
Explicit sex, BDSM, a tough alpha cop, a reluctant Domme, and a smoldering submissive street artist willing to do anything to belong to her.

I really am going to be rambly today... mostly because I failed and only have my GoodReads notes to fall back on for this review.
What I wrote back when I read this?
I think I remember rolling my eyes a lot in this one. I honestly had a lot of hope for this. The premise was great, but I just found it a bit lacking.I'm not sure what to say.
I felt like I was only seeing part of the picture, that there was a bunch of stuff missing, that would have made the story more complete.
The whole fashion story line felt incomplete.
However the eventual dynamic between the three of them was excellent.
Also, I should say, that my PERSONAL preference, is that I don't enjoy female tops/doms/dommes/dominatrixes/whatever. They don't float my boat - so that could be it entirely.
I'm definitely curious about the others in this series, and I may just go back and do some reading! Burkhart really does write some good BDSM.
