Jennifer Domenico is my new heroine and I am her humble devotee. This review is very vague in terms of what happens as I can't say much without spoiling your read.
I love me a good BDSM or Dom/sub book, but only when the control is part of sex/playtime (be that in a club or at home). I hate it when (and often despite all agreement to keep it to the bedroom) suddenly the Dom/man decides it is o.k. to punish the sub/woman about things she says/does in her everyday life or at work. For me that is a HUGE turn off and a big NO - it's crossing the line from a consensual relationship to a domineering/controlling, and therefore abusive, one.
Well Mia (the heroine of this book) feels the same and after reading Book 1 I couldn't see how the story would develop. To me the ending of the first book was what I wanted to happen, I didn't want Mia to loose any of her strength or independence. I was almost scared to read this as I was certain that it would be the usual case of "her will and decision making being subsumed by his" c**p. At this point I have to add that the first book is amazing and DOES need to be read before this one.
I'm pleased to say that my fears were unfounded and this story developed in a way I could never have foreseen at the end of Book 1. I LOVED this story, and whilst the book was not as 'steamy hot' as the first one, this was more than made up for by the depth of emotion and the development of Mia and Gabriel as characters. They are so alive and believable that they felt real.
I had half expected to either not finish the story or to end up throwing my kindle across the room in anger and frustration. But no, it remained gripped in my hand as I ferociously consumed every word of this book as quickly and thoroughly as I could. I didn't want to, and at times COULDN'T , put this down. In my wildest imaginings I wouldn't have dreamed up the plot line for this and yet it was perfect and exactly what I wanted to read.
The author is now high on my list of favourites and I am off to add all her books to my TBR list. If you are wondering about buying/reading this book all I can say is do so - but only after reading book 1 of course.
