Do you know when you read a good book you find yourself drifting off into the new world the author has created? Well, I totally felt that and more with this book! Let me start off by saying that this is a hardcore, intense BDSM book but the romance is just as intense and hardcore. This isn't fifty shades of grey folks, this is real BDSM and real love... and it was wonderful. I would love to read more of Carly and Adam just because this is such an intense story. Their characters were so developed and well done as we see the first BDSM aspect of the story.
Adam purchases Carly from an auction and being the hardcore Dom he is... he does everything according to protocol. Teaching her the rules of his lifestyle and his ways but what happens when she fails almost everything he tests her at? He pushes her harder and pass the next test. It's obvious that she isn't as experienced as she claimed to be but there is nothing he can do. Or can he? He threatens to send her back multiple times but never has the guts to actually do it.
Then one time, a scene goes badly and he realizes just how much he cares for her. The next time the scene goes badly he sees that he is the problem and she needs to get away from him. He needs to let her go... Oh that was heartbreaking. I admit I totally balled my eyes out like a baby when he made her leave.... but can the power of love prevail? Will she be able to go back to her normal life? Once Adam realizes his mistake will he get back to her in time? Well, you have to read it to find out! I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves BDSM and romance.
