Sting Factor (kink): 4 out of 5
As a fan of this author I was excited to be able to review this book. I know that when I read one of Eden Bradley’s books I will get a great read full of emotions and hot scenes and this book did not disappoint.
Our heroine Rowan has been hurt in the past by an ex boyfriend whom she trusted to be her Dom. So when she sees Christian she wants what she thinks she cannot have. She keeps her distance because of her past experience and is not ready to give in to what she craves. Ever since she was hurt Rowan has made sure that she is the one in charge. She may come to the club but she is a Mistress now and will not let anyone put her in the position of loosing control again. Yet somehow Christian not only sees the submissive that she is he gets Rowan to agree to be his sub for thirty days. Rowan seems to be running away from her problems and no matter how hard she insists she is not as strong as she comes off to be. Christian is a great Dom. He is full of patience and helps Rowan through her fears. He stands by her and helps her so much.
The romance between these two is a wonderful read. It is full of the mental side as well as the physical side. Christian must help Rowan get past her mental barriers before they can enjoy themselves. Watching Rowan let go and grow with Christian’s help made for a good read.
We also get to meet April and Decker in this book. Watching their bond form was a nice read. Decker is one of the more popular Doms and usually does not play with someone more than once. That is until April comes to the club. She is new to the lifestyle and the chemistry between the two is off the charts.
This book takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster ride. The author brings the characters and their world vividly to life pulling you in right from the start and doesn’t let go until the very end.
