My Review

Beware this book ends on a CLIFFHANGER. Even though I read an arc this annoyed me as it is half a book in length, the story just stops. However for sheer quality of writing and story telling I have stuck with the 4 stars this deserves (but would say 3.5 due to cliffhanger).

It is seriously hot, even though full sex doesn't occur until near the end of the book. Mia is a strong and independent heroine but her strong attraction to Gabriel has her making decisions that leave her uncomfortable and uncertain. Gabriel is very controlling but we get to see a deeply caring side to him. What I didn't like was him keep referring to 'breaking" Mia.

I also dislike statements such as

"Sometimes you might not want to do it, but I'll ask you to do it anyway,because I want you to believe that I know what you want and what you need better than you do."

This errs on psychological abuse. I'm sure Mia does know what she wants. Thankfully this was a one off and the rest was very consensual, with Mia very much choosing what she did.

I did really enjoy the book and read it all in one go - it is definitely gripping. Not very romantic but very erotic and with good pace. I want to know how the story ends but at the same time don't want to see it being Mia that changes and Gabriel gets things all his way.

Blurb: He’s a dom, she’s not even a little submissive. It shouldn’t work, but they can’t walk away from each other.
Boundaries will be crossed, trust shattered, secrets revealed. Both need to give up control. Both need to find middle ground.
When it’s easier to walk away, there’s only thing strong enough to bind them together.
Reckless devotion.

One day, many months ago, Jennifer Domenico went to sleep and a beautiful love story played out in her dreams.
When she awoke, she felt compelled to write it down. So she did. The result was her first novel, Turn Towards the Sun and a writing career was born.
Ms. Domenico lives in Scottsdale, Arizona with her very Italian husband, a dog that adores her, two cats that tolerate her, and a wicked sweet tooth.
