My Review:

I love how there is more than sex and BDSM to this novel. The author crafts an intricate tale with a complete backstory that will keep you hooked. Now don`t get me wrong, that`s all there and it`s hot as all get-up but it`s not the sum total of the novel. Nikki Sex brings it all together with her subtle yet powerful descriptions that paint this world for you. She had me so wrapped up in this story that I read it in a single sitting then wanted to read it again.

I definitely had fun getting to know the characters that Nikki Sex brings to life in the pages of this novel. Both main characters are fully developed individuals who are easy to relate to, or at least understand. I love the history between the characters and surrounding their interactions with one another (and with the supporting cast). I also quite enjoyed the supporting cast. They were developed in a manner that allowed the reader to get to know them without overpowering the main characters. Also, although not strictly part of a series, the recurrence of staple characters throughout her work definitely adds to the aura & mystique of her work. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing some of the characters from Nikki Sex`s past novels reappear, even if just in a cameo spot. I definitely squealed out lout at one character`s reappearance.

With this one, the author combines the realities of everyday life with family issues as well as some hot and steamy romance and BDSM. It`s the best of both worlds that would make a brilliant introduction to Nikki Sex`s work or just a plain fantastic read for those who`ve read her before.
