I don’t know why I waited so long to read this book! Oh, right, technical problems. I seriously loved it!
Lexie Palmer is a writer and has come at an impasse because her ideas for books are starting to get stale in the eyes of her editor. So, when he tells her to write something about BDSM she jumps at the opportunity. But first, she needs to find out more about the style. A chance meeting with Garrett is all she needs in order to educate herself in the ways of the BDSM world.
Garrett Hughes is a Dominant and member of an elite BDSM club. He decides to help Lexie write her book but what’s really in his agenda?
Lexie is a strong willed woman and finds it sickening that other women decide to become submissives. She just doesn’t understand why anyone would give up their will to another human being. She likes control and she isn’t willing to compromise that for anyone.
Garrett on the other hand is looking for a submissive woman; nothing more, nothing less. And he has his eyes set on Alexandra.
Trying to convert Lexie in order to fit his idea of the perfect submissive, he introduces her to his lifestyle with life altering consequences for her and for himself. Who is going to tame who in the end? How much can passion and need for someone change a person?
The writing of the book was flawless. It drew me right in and I finished it in two days. The story flowed smoothly and the characters were well developed. Both Garrett and Lexie are multidimensional characters, real human beings. The pace of the book was perfect and I cannot thank the author enough for writing this book the way that she did. It was so refreshing and utterly believable. I fell in love with Garrett and Lexie and I was totally engrossed in their story.
I would recommend this book to every fan of the genre. You will miss out if you don’t read it.
5+ Stars from me!
