(Synopsis) She wants to explore her true desires, and he wants to watch…

When a sexy stranger asks Wolf Henrikson to rescue her from a bad date, he never expected to want the woman for himself. But their playful conversation turns into a scorching one-night stand that reveals the shy beauty gets off on the idea of being seen, even if she’s a little scared of it, too. And Wolf loves to watch.

In the wake of discovering her fiancĂ©’s infidelity, florist Olivia Foster never expected to find someone who not only understood her wildest, darkest fantasies, but would bring them to life. As Wolf introduces her to his world at the play club, Blasphemy, Liv finds herself tempted to explore submission and exhibitionism with the hard-bodied Dom even as she’s scared to trust again.

But Wolf is a master of getting what he wants—and he’s got his eyes set on her…

Eyes On You is proof that sometimes even the absolute worst date in history can end up being the best thing that's ever happened to you. 

Liv is on the worst date EVER (seriously) when Wolf - who got stood up by his date - saves the day and later lights a fire in her that can't be extinguished. After being made to feel like her desire to watch and to be watched is deviant and wrong and disgusting by her ex-fiance, Liv had buried that part of her. But, meeting Wolf, a man who gets off on the exact same things, completely changes her outlook on sex and intimacy and even love. 

Wolf is a really cool hero. He, along with Isaac, works IT at Blasphemy along with his other Master duties. He's very likable. He's nice and pleasant and dominant in a very non-scary way. From the moment he meets Liv, he's protective of her and wants to help her and shield her from all the bad things. How could you not love that quality in a man?

Liv is in a good place, but Wolf reminds her that things could be better. He makes it okay for her to express her exhibitionist and voyeur desires. And, as the story moves on, he introduces her to the club scene and his friends. I loved that she developed friendships with the other women we've already met in the previous Blasphemy stories. It gave us a good excuse to check up on them and see how they're doing. 

We also met Master Alex, and I have to say, I'm intrigued. I'm hoping he gets the next book in this series. 

Eyes On You is a novella. Therefore, there is a bit of instalove here. Liv and Wolf spend one weekend together, and that's it for them. They know they've found their match, although it takes them a bit longer than that to admit it out loud. But, honestly, given that it's a novella and the story has to move faster than usual, the instalove didn't bother me. I was happy to see this connection forged so quickly. I was happy that there were absolutely no games played between them - no secrets, open communication - it was very refreshing. 

I love Laura Kaye's stories, and Eyes On You was no different. The characters were honest, the sex was hot and the ending was gratifying.
