Hot, hot, hot! It took me a bit to try and understand exactly what was going on. But when I did, it all made sense and the story really took off! Romance with plenty of mystery all the way through, this book was hard to put down until everything was solved and figured out!
By now, people know my preferred genre in erotica is BDSM. I can't get enough. There was some serious stuff in here, some that wasn't for me (blood play, maiming, the more extreme stuff, although not used to try and entice the reader) and stuff I was happy to read about (consensual role plays).
Charlotte is hesitant to get back into the scene after some pretty bad experiences. I like the books where the heroine needs a little healing and a little coxing in a safe environment. Martin is a great pick for her and I highly enjoyed their romps, that seemed to happen all but in a bed.
Very sexual, very hot story! Hot enough to make you melt in all the wrong but oh so wrong ways! Definitely not suitable for the under 18 crowd and for those who aren't into more than light bdsm. But if you like a little more to your bdsm, this is definitely a novel worth checking out!
