Renovating a Heart by Deandra Hall
Steve McCoy survived a harrowing youth and a horrible tragedy and still made it as a successful attorney and businessman. And he?s managed to keep his broken, battered heart under wraps by working with short-term submissives at his popular BDSM club, Eden?s Gate.
Until Kelly Markham came along. Kelly?s history was as bad or worse than Steve?s. She lost the only man she ever loved, a faithful, loving Dom, but she never lost hope. When she?s invited to visit Eden?s Gate, she feels like she?s finally found a home. Better yet, she finds a man who?ll help her reintegrate into the community, even if his help is only offered for one month.
Unfortunately, Kelly discovers that being Steve?s submissive is not easy. Matter of fact, when she accidentally trips a trigger from Steve?s history, being his submissive could actually be dangerous, even deadly. Steve?s determined to keep her at a distance and never show her his heart, but can he hold out when he realizes his best shot at a happily ever after might not survive?

Renovating A Heart is the third book in the Love Under Construction Series. It can be read as a standalone but I recommend you read the others prior so you know who the other characters are.
Steve McCoy is a successful attorney as well as the owner of the BDSM club, Eden's Gate. Steve is sexy as hell and everyone wants him but he is so closed off with his emotions. The only type of relationships Steve does is Dom/Sub and they only last one month.
Kelly Markham is a beautiful women who has had to deal with things no one should have. She lost the one person who loved her more then anything, her Dom and is now on her own. After eight years at her job she gets called in to be told they are letting her go. After leaning on her friends for help she is sent to Eden's Gate where she signs a contract to be Steve's Sub for one month. The only down fall...neither are willing to talk about their past.
During their one month something happens and sets off a trigger, emotions are running high so they agree to start over and Kelly tells Steve about her past and why he caused a trigger.
Their time at home and at the club are hot as hell!!! There is so much detail you can actually visualize whats happening. Reading this story had my emotions on high alert, one minute I was laughing, then I was crying, I was heartbroken, and I was most definitely pissed. I will be recommending this book to everyone!!!
