The book for me is on the slow side I had a hard time getting into the book.

We follow Emma as she meets a guy she likes but because of how her last relationship ended she has issues with self image and doubts about everything. She likes the guy but has been warned off of him by her friend and him. She learns he is a dominate and she not sure if she is ready for that.

She agrees to do it. But she wasn’t prepared for it at all. He didn’t give her enough information and I see this as a hard way to introduce someone to this life style. He makes her work past it but I do see how he dose listen to her even when she doesn’t use the safe word.

He fisted her and belittled her. She dealt but felt insecure. He took her from behind even though she was scared she worked past it. But when it was over she ran. Was it too much and will she want more?

She doesn’t follow all his orders what will her next punishment be and can she take it and still be with him?

Wow these two have some issues to work out if they are going to be together.

Now we are doing bloodletting he has no specific style he all over. I fell he is out of control he is not preparing her for anything and some of the things he does to her are degrading if you are not prepared correctly.

Wow just as she is dealing with one issue her ex-husband has to make an appearance will this make things easier or harder on her? Will it influence her decision?

After she makes her life altering decision she has an intense session and feels at home. My only complaint is that she ends it with us wondering what will happen next in their lives.
