Rating: 5 out of 5 Paddle
In A Perfect Storm, Cameron Dane has crafted an intense story that draws you in and forces you to stay up late reading it. Lucien Cabot is a man haunted by the death of his brother and the lust for revenge that gnaws at his soul. Sophie Emerson is a TV news producer who’s been offered the chance to produce the story of her career. The last thing either expects is to fall in love, certainly not with each other. Can a love that starts in desires for deception and revenge survive?
Normally, I’d say more about the story itself,. But the discovery of just what and why Lucien is doing is the meat of the story. This is a romance that manages to step beyond the usual formula of the genre, while holding to the crucial elements that make it a romance. Lucien and his staff, more friends really, are involved in the BDSM lifestyle and work to draw Sophie into that lifestyle. Sophie is quickly and enthusiastically drawn in, even when she can tell there is some secret plan involved in her inclusion in some way.
Technically, Mr. Dane is excellent. Nothing gets in the way of the story and the readers’ enjoyment of it. Cameron is an excellent wordsmith and paints vivid pictures of both the physical and emotional scenes. His carefully crafted plot allows him to seamlessly introduce the sex scenes into the story. The story is strong, strong enough to tempt you to skip through the sex scenes to see what happens next.
