Synopsis from Goodreads:

Two people learn what it really means to give up control in the sizzling new novel from the author of Blush and Surrender to Temptation.…

When business mogul Elijah Masterson travels to the Mexican coast for his chain of luxury resorts, he purchases an emerald green glass sculpture for one of the properties. He is soon fascinated by the fiery temptress who created it. The attraction between them is instant and explosive, but Elijah resists, unsure that a woman as strong-willed as Samantha would ever yield in the way he needs her to.

Headstrong glass artist Samantha Collins hides a secret desire to submit to the right man. Samantha sees everything she wants in Elijah, but apart from one steamy night, he seems determined to keep his distance. She has always held back, but refusing to let go now that she’s found the dominant man she’s always wanted, Samantha makes Elijah an offer he can’t refuse: a month of absolute submission.

But after a month of incredible passion, will either of them be able to walk away?

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

Jameson had me from the first page. Her well written and easy to follow storyline takes the world of BDSM and presents it in an understandable and approachable manner. Not only my imagination, but also my heart was caught up in this story. This is not simply a Dom/sub tale, but a journey of discovery. Not only did this book make my pulse race, but it also brought tears to my eyes. Jameson’s exquisitely developed and intrinsically visual descriptions put everything together in a seamless and enchanting manner.

Jameson’s take on character development allows you to get to know her cast gradually while they get to know one another. I became so attached and connected to the main character that I felt like I was fighting an internal battle alongside her. The supporting cast filled out the story quite well. They were fun and unique. I appreciated how each character was an individual and how they came together.

Overall, this is one of those stories that has you thinking ‘just one more chapter’ then leaves you going to work the next morning tired with a book hangover.
