Can attraction make people stupid?

Character development: 😬🤭🥺🤩
The Hero: Doc (a.k.a. Nolan) – a doctor and a member of the Fae Corps. He is a Fae with dragon shifter blood mixed in. He thrives on dominance and has wanted Alice for a long time. Though he has balked at the thought of mating and teased the other members of the Fae Corps that have recently mated.
The heroine(s): Alice – A human nurse adopted by the Fae. Doc has allowed her to help him in his work. She has had feelings for Doc for quite a while. She has been kidnapped and used as bait by the resistance to trap the alpha’s of the Fae Corps.
The Story: Doc knows that chemistry exists between him and Alice. But he a standard Alpha-hole Fae and pushes her away even as he knows he can’t stand the thought of any other male touching Alice. He comes to her rescue after she is kidnapped.
Like the first two books, this was narrated by Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott. They do a great job and I really like Kai’s deep voice. This book was dual POV and I liked the story and the romance better than Property of the Fae. Though like that book, the priorities these characters have leaves something to be desired.
Alice is used as bait in a trap and when Doc comes to rescue her, they know it is a trap. However, instead of leaving and bringing back more members of the Fae Corps, Doc and Alice keep talking and things even start to get a bit erotic. Even when they hear footsteps nearby, they don’t do anything.
Also I am not quite sure why all of the Alpha Fae with hot powers have to be damaged. This isn’t the first book in the series where the Hero had been raped as a child. I hate that. I think that a man can like BDSM and also be a commitment phobe without being damaged as a child.
So Doc is a sadist but doesn’t like rules or safe words. Alice is so in love with him that she agrees. He asks her to trust him, which sounds right, but how can someone agree to that? The master in that relationship wouldn’t be the one feeling the pain, so what if he doesn’t know when to stop. What if she feels more pain than he expects? Sounds like a recipe for disaster to me. Though when he told Alice what he would do to her he made it sound pretty sexy I will have to admit.
This book has a lot of sizzling hot and super steamy intimate scenes. I liked the smutty scenes despite what I said above. Every now and then you just get into the smut in a romance like this one and this one just did it for me. There was definitely more romance and smut than there was story, but for that type of book, it hit the spot.
