Sting Factor (kink): 5 out of 5
Yield is an extremely dark book, heavy with BDSM and seldom consensual. It is definitely not for the faint of heart. The reader has a choice of two endings, one much darker than the other.
Wren seems to have it all. She’s beautiful, smart and rich but she has issues. She’s a girl on a mission to find the killer of her father. So, with the help of Hugh, her mountain of a bodyguard she embarks on said mission. That’s how she meets Glass, the man she hopes will find her father’s killer. She offers Glass a lot of money to help her find the man called Vetrov aka Moghul. Moghul who is the reason her father is dead and he must pay. Glass has a counter offer, $200,000.00 and she must spend a night in his bed.
Sparks fly between Wren and Glass almost immediately. Glass, in typical Alpha-male fashion quickly takes Wren in hand as well as over his knee for a good old fashioned spanking. When they inadvertently, cross paths with Moghul, he decides he has to have Wren for his very own. He will stop at nothing to possess her, to keep her, to own her. Moghul, is a sadistic man who always gets what he wants and unfortunately for Wren, he wants her.
When Wren is kidnapped and given to Moghul, she is put through hell and yet is it really hell for her? She is always thinking about escaping from him to return to Glass but when the time comes and she is able to leave, does she yearn to be back with Moghul, to return to the life she had when she was with him? Can she truly be happy with Glass?
Yield is a well written book, which although it is part of the Pierced Heart Series it can be read as a standalone. The characters are well written, you should not like the bad men in this book, but you might find yourself feeling something for them. You might find yourself having a hard time deciding just who Wren would be better off giving her heart to. Although you can choose the ending for the book, I would suggest you read both.
