My Rating: ★★★★★
Let me start by saying that BDSM is not my kind of erotica; I got prove of that while reading this book. I consider myself to be extremely open minded about everything; life is too short to place unnecessary limits on it and should be enjoyed always. In books, the only restrictions I believe in age restrictions and that is only to keep their innocence as long as possible, not to censure their reading. Other than that I say bring it! I bought this book because it was recommended, and even though I was a little skeptical about the concept when I started it, I was sucked in by the story so amazingly that I’m glad I gave it a chance.
I'm not going to discuss or compare the actual BDSM scenes because is a subject I, honestly, know nothing about and I don't think is fair to the story or the author. I do want elaborate on what made this book a page turner for me which is the characters and their story.
I was impressed with the depths of the relationship and the feelings it evokes. I simply love it, love the characters (wanted to smack one character in particular more than once). Love their interactions and the devotion they show to one another.
Aaron Harte is a class of his own. He is such a strong character while being so sweet and cute and innocent that it made me reconsider the concept of submission (if only for a bit). He is fearless, kind and loving, devoted and tender. He is the one that makes this book shine.
To counter his sweet, innocent, charismatic boy persona, we have Tara; a woman who lost the love of her life to a car accident and who became so distant that she seems to have a frozen heart inside her chest. In reality, the accident has left her so broken that all she can do is cling to the ghost of the past.
Tara's past and mule-headed point of view makes this journey feel like a crazy emotional roller coaster ride; but is definitely all worth it.
I do recommend this book to anyone who enjoys erotica, even if, like me, haven't ever read a BDSM story before.
