Betrayed and completely exposed, she'd sworn off kink. Hell, she'd sworn off men. But she hadn't counted on him...
One of the hottest voices in Sci-Fi, Angus Domhnull is renowned not just for his sweeping sagas, but for his stupidly gorgeous looks—and the fact that he’s taken almost five years to finish his latest novel. Now, assistant editor, Eliza Burrows, is stuck minding him, and his brooding nature is pushing every sexually submissive button she has. But even if Angus wasn’t her publisher’s star author, he’d be off-limits—after a painful betrayal, Eliza doesn’t play anymore, and she’s not about to start again with him.
Unable to deliver his long-awaited manuscript, Angus is saddled with a keeper—and her creative input—that he never asked for. Despite the resentment and animosity brewing between them, he finds himself drawn to Eliza. As he learns more about the intriguing woman behind the prickly facade, he falls for her, hard and deep.
When the attraction between them ignites, Eliza lets Angus bring her to one place she swore she’d never go again—her knees. He wants more than just her submission, but her past and the secrets she’s hidden could destroy everything...
I don't think I've ever used the word "refreshing" to describe a book, but that's exactly how it felt to read this book.
While I've read my fair share of BDSM centered romances, I felt like this one went some much deeper. It wasn't just, kink. It wasn't just tying her up. It wasn't just spanking her or flogging her. **But man were those some deliciously decadent scenes!!** This book delved deeper into what she actually felt when the events took place. It gave us what Eliza felt when Angus bound her hands or restrained her in any way. It gave us her feeling of flight when she plateaued and how she felt like nothing could intrude on that moment of painful pleasure.
I really enjoyed how they became friends before they became more. I loved that angus was so caring and charming. It was great to see that while they both had their faults, they were perfect or each other. I loved how they uplifted each other when needed.
I thought it was important that the author pointed out that what happened to Eliza, happened to others as well. I liked that she touched on the tragedy that befell one of the women. It gave credence to showing people that they don't have to suffer in silence and I loved that she wrote about Eliza seeking therapy.
This was an emotional read that kept me intrigued and entertained and I look forward to more from the author.
