I had never read any of Shay’s work before so was looking forward to seeing what she had to offer. The story is a MFF ménage, with BDSM as its underlying current. There is an additional futuristic component to the storyline, but the reader isn’t taken so far into the future that the story becomes un-relatable to the modern day.
The three main characters are nicely intertwined within the story. Margarit St. James is a woman with father issues and the need to be in control at all times. She is fighting for her father’s approval, and in the process denying herself the life she longs for, that of a Domme. When Margarit is placed in charge of Branded, the romance division of her father’s virtual publishing company she embarks on a journey of self discovery. Her Vice President of Operations turns out to be the man of her dreams, Alex Barrett. The two characters have crossed paths before and both know there is a deep attraction that is more than just lust. Jasmyn Carrara is Alex’s current girlfriend and holds part of Alex’s heart, but not all of it. It’s just lucky that she is also attracted to Margarit, because she knows her new boss is the woman Alex wants to complete his life and fill the remainder of his heart. Both Alex and Jasmyn set out to help Margarit discover her true self and overcome issues from the past that hold her back.
