Book Review – Perception (Club Destiny #6) by Nicole Edwards



Xander and Mercedes both know firsthand what it feels like to be in total control. The question is… who really holds all of the power?

Xander Boone has never had a problem going after what he wants. In fact, he has built his life around doing just that. And he has a rather impressive track record. But Xander finds himself up against his biggest challenge yet. As fate would have it, Xander’s greatest desire is a woman who has always been off limits to him. One he wants more than his next breath. Nothing about her is easy, but then again, things that are worth it never are. So, when the perfect opportunity presents itself, Xander knows it’s time to call in a favor. Mercedes Bryant believes there is only one way to do something. She also knows what Xander wants isn’t possible. But she‘s about to learn that you shouldn’t always believe what you think you see. And Xander is going to be the one to teach her that lesson.

What else is to be expected from a Nicole Edwards book right? Perception is the 6th book in the Club Destiny Series and tells the story of Xander and Mercedes. Perception is different because where we have been getting the sexy submissive and the alpha dominant we are introduced to a Dom and Domme who have been friends for years without ever crossing that line. You know the line I am talking about, the line where when crossed we get a little….

Nicole brings us another sexy story that will melt your panties right off. A little bit of nice and a whole lot of naughty Perception sucked me in from the very first page. I love how not only do we get to know Xander and Mercedes we also got to see a few characters from the past that I have missed so much (Sam and Logan)! There are old friends and new friends that make an appearance in Perception and everything fits perfectly.

Xander is your sexy Dom who likes his woman submissive and wants to consume them and make them realize the ways he can bring their bodies to pure ecstasy. By day when working he is….

But watch out because when business is over and it’s time to play – Xander truly does know how to play. Most of his playtime you can find him like…

Mercedes is a professional realtor by day. Always prim and proper and dresses to kill she knows how to snag clients and produce the best outcome possible. She takes her work seriously and is very independent. Being the professional business woman that she is she exudes sexiness in a very professional way. When it comes to her business you will find Mercedes focused on business. But Mercedes is a Domme so when it’s time to play you can find her….

Because Mercedes needs control, she craves it. Growing up in her childhood she had anything but so knowing now that she can have it all, she never plans to give it up. Until a deal is made. A death that leaves Mercedes giving up everything she knows, all the control to be Xander’s for 5 days. Struggling with letting control go – Mercedes sets out to achieve the 5 days in hopes of not failing. She needs to prove to Xander that she is NOT submissive but in turn she wants his submission at the first time and place of her choosing.
This is when things start to heat up and had me crawling into my book and had me screaming….

I found myself falling more and more in love with Xander not only because of his dominance but because deep down he had a softer side. You could truly see the feelings that he had for Mercedes ran deep and I was left hoping and praying that she would come out of her own head and realize the feelings she had for him. There were moments that were….

And then other moments that stole my breath

When feelings grow and hearts are put on the line, what happens when the 5 days is up the deal is fulfilled? Can Xander somehow win Mercedes over and show that he doesn’t want her for just 5 days but for always? Can Mercedes learn to let go over the past and the need for absolute control and listen to her heart, or will the dare proof that one thing that Xander fears and that Mercedes is a Domme and there is just no future for them?
