ORIGINAL REVIEW: 4.5 stars — BDSM isn’t high on my list of fantasies, but the characters and interactions in this book were just so delicious. Seriously sweet and vulnerable characters. Nice side plot….
ON REREAD: 4.5 stars — Yeah, you know what? I’ve learned through the years that I apparently enjoy reading about BDSM. And maybe that’s because of the way that authors like Ms. Oak portray it. I still don’t get the impulses personally, but it is hella hot to read about regardless. And Sam and Jack, well they could sell me anything. 😛 There’s just something so enjoyable about their already established relationship, how they looked out for each other, and how they basically get the green light on Abby and MOVE IN for the strike! Poor Abby didn’t know what hit her. And she was a delight in her own right. Sassy, but so damaged, but still very strong.
It’s got a lot of stretch the imaginations parts — like would a guy like Jack Barnes really rule that town? And the ruthlessness…damn the ruthlessness. I mean, I’m not actually a girl who is into revenge and making people pay and all that jazz, but for some reason I enjoy reading about it. Or maybe Jack just makes it palatable. He’s so…intriguing.
Alas, I will admit, it is Samuel that stole the show for me. He’s just so damn incorrigible. Seriously. And I loved how Abby helped Sam and Jack move forward themselves. This one doesn’t get too in to the BDSM stuff, just a taster really. But again, it’s got some good intrigue going on, and a bit of suspense/action. All in all, not bad for an erotica. A great start to a series that I really ended up thoroughly enjoying.
