Retired German cage fighter, Jonas Becker, has finally settled down in Las Vegas to open his own training center. A chance meeting with his dream woman at a charity ball leads him to hanging out at her favorite coffee shop where he overhears the perfect opportunity to win her over. One orgasm at a time. Erica Alman is sick of her overprotective older brother's ruining her love life, especially after they chased away that amazing mystery man that she had danced with a the charity ball six months ago. With the help of her best friend, she signs up with the 1 Night Stand dating service. Her request is simple. She wants a dangerous, rough man to fake break into her hotel room at the Castillo resort and force her to have multiple orgasms. Oh, and she wants the man to be big, bald, and have a German accent, just like Jonas. Using every ounce of his skill as an experienced Dom, Jonas hopes to win Erica over before the night ends. He can only hope that the pleasure he can bring her would make the beautiful woman look past his scarred and battered exterior to the man within who can give her sensations like no other. (goodreads)

This novella packed a lot of sizzling heat in it. I loved that this revolved around the series 1 Night Stand, a series of novellas based on Madam Eve's, a dating service that is not your typical dating service. (the books are all stand alones) What I like most about this is that it allows for a much more believable story about  how the main characters are able to hook up so fast with each other rather then the usual insta love.

One would think that in 44 pages it would be hard to like the characters, but such wasn't the case here. I loved Erica and Jonas, and how we got a glimpse into Erica's life with her older brothers who made me laugh with their over protectiveness. Erica and Jonas were great. There was lots of chemistry, and I have to say that the sex scenes were sizzling hot. I've read a few BDSM erotica books, and some of them are hard for me because I'm not really familiar with that lifestyle other then what I've read. However, Sensation Play was great because the BDSM scenes just worked and were graphic, but not too graphic if that makes sense. This is the second book I've read by Ann Mayburn, and it won't be the last.
