    I am being honest when I say initially I didn t know whether to award 3 or 4 starsthen I thought why 3 It is a good and enjoyable story, but I really had to suspend disbelief to accept the actions and behaviour of Tahima the female protagonist with Gian Rossini within the timescale given Who in real life would want to jump the bones within 24 hours, of this good looking man who she thinks at that time is a New York mafia bosses son, who has killed his father, and he a well known Dom, whilst I am being honest when I say initially I didn t know whether to award 3 or 4 starsthen I thought why 3 It is a good and enjoyable story, but I really had to suspend disbelief to accept the actions and behaviour of Tahima the female protagonist with Gian Rossini within the timescale given Who in real life would want to jump the bones within 24 hours, of this good looking man who she thinks at that time is a New York mafia bosses son, who has killed his father, and he a well known Dom, whilst she is suffering emotionally from some really bad experiences with a lover Dom whom she had trusted and its hinted has done something awful to her that temporarily destroyed her Then I thought you have watched plays where suspension of disbelief made the play brilliant but wouldn t work in real lifeso do the same with this story and I have to give it 4 stars forThe physical and chemical attraction between Tahima and Gian that leads to some erotic scenes and within a very short time, but for Tahima with a difference Her serious damage from past fiance and boy did I want Kayla Stonor, the author to write a detailed come uppance for that bastardyou failed there Kayla, sorry We get a what will probably be Readers enjoy detailed retribution against nasty antagonists, probably because of so much injustice in real life and it s good to redress the balance through creative fiction I digress the difference is Tahima finds herself switch role from submissive to taking control, power and Dommes over Gian with some physical discipline, even if it seems to be role play it is good for her self esteem Gian Rossini, despite his connections and crime, not forgetting his nature as a Dominant male seems to be aware instinctively of this, yet allows her dominance and administration of painful controlling discipline to him, which he finds a turn on surprise surprise I know of people in real life this happens with, so it is plausible There is some good adventure and close calls on the survival trek The Hank experience, humiliating, fearful, I kept saying zap the b now, now, come on, don t do this to Rossiniso I m involved with the characters Kayla created, which is good.The ending I saw coming but was glad I could have cheerfully read the last scene to it s climactic end and felt a little deprived as I do when I read a HEA and they head off in the distance while nosy voyeur me wants to spy a little longer on their lives and story So the good outweighed the disbeliefand it is of a good literary standard and edited, hence I go for 4 stars overall

    It is such a role reversal from the usual BDSM book It expects that you know the lifestyle, the rules, the psychology So the author focuses on plot and characters I was drawn to Gian within 5 minutes of meeting him And the heroine is a feisty character fighting to regain herself, to hold true to her inner core The psychology behind feeling in control and being in control is a wonderful theme in this book I liked that both characters were in a position of needing saving, and of providing sa It is such a role reversal from the usual BDSM book It expects that you know the lifestyle, the rules, the psychology So the author focuses on plot and characters I was drawn to Gian within 5 minutes of meeting him And the heroine is a feisty character fighting to regain herself, to hold true to her inner core The psychology behind feeling in control and being in control is a wonderful theme in this book I liked that both characters were in a position of needing saving, and of providing salvation I liked that the female was strong, and the male was alpha without casting a shadow over her I liked that there was a theme running the plot, not the sex the need to re invent themselves, not only to the world, but also within their own minds I liked that the author gave the characters time to grow While there was an initial attraction, you didn t have them jumping straight into declaring their unending love within the first 24 hours of meeting one another It felt realistic to see their relationship grow I have different criteria for novels and novellas, not expecting as much development from the latter But this book was very well rounded in plot and character development Everything progressed at a natural pace, like in a novel, with no unanswered questions or dropped sub plots like novellas and shorts can do I liked both main characters, I felt the constant tension between them I never saw either as weak.One of my pet peeves about most erotica is that there is constant repetition Like the author thought I had forgotten something that had been mentioned 20 pages before That never happened So I was able to stay fully engaged with the plot.I talked earlier about the power theme, and how being in control and giving up control is very well handled by this plot It is a common theme in most BDSM literature, but you handle it very uniquely It was a refreshingly new take on a common theme Gian gives his sub what she needs by letting her top from the bottom Perception is everything when it comes to control and to power And by being the Master that he is, he is able to give each of them what they need psychologically I loved that.I know that Under by Treaty is next in this series, but I would love to see these characters again Be sure to let us know if you re visit them
