I really do like Eden Bradley, but I’ll be the first to admit that this novel was really hard to read. It got really slow towards the middle and was more than a little boring. That nickname that the main character was called had me rolling my eyes every time it was said too. I really didn’t like it at all. I wish that this novel has gone by a lot faster, because I hate reading a novel that takes this long. Which is a shame, because the plot of the novel was actually quite promising. The characters went very well with each other and I would have loved to see a little more action to this novel because of them. The characters would have reacted great together if it did. It was almost like all the chemistry they had was kind of bland to be honest. It was a major letdown from the first novel in this series and I really didn’t like that at all.
In this novel we see the reappearance of Jamie as one of the main characters. Jamie’s own past may have caught up with him quicker than he would have liked. Jamie’s own image is that of a wickedly, sexy, bad boy that’s not afraid to get a little kinky. It’s because of the kink that he went to his favorite nightclub and saw his worst nightmare there. That nightmare being Summer Grace. He made a promise to her brother as he lay dying that he do everything he could to protect her, even if that means from himself. When finally confronted with Jamie face-to-face, Summer Grace wants nothing to do with him. She spent most of her life chasing after him and now that he finally interested in her she could care less. Jamie all but abandoned her after her brother died and without him she has no one left. Too bad Jamie doesn’t give her a choice, because once those feelings were ignited again there was no stopping them. Now Jamie wants to be her DOM and with an offer like his there’s no refusing him. He’s exactly what Summer Grace has been waiting for her whole life and now that he’s her’s it almost too good to be true. Way too good in fact, because now Summer Grace is starting to doubt her feelings for him. And she’s not the only one. Jamie is starting to do the same thing, which may just cause him to lose her forever.
This novel is simply a story about BDSM. Which for this novel is almost a really bad thing. There was little to no romance in this novel whatsoever, because the closest thing that I saw would have been the actual BDSM. This could be seen as romantic for a lot of people, but in this case it was just a let down from the actual plot. The beginning of the novel made the plot seem like it was going to be grand, but once you’re halfway into it you start to become confused. Between this and the boring scenes, it wasn’t equally boring novel. It took me over a month to read and that almost never happens. So as far of my recommendations go, I really wouldn’t recommend that you read this novel. It has good BDSM scenes, but that’s about it.
