Sometimes getting what you want…makes you crave something more
Purchasing a Dom from a charity auction was the wildest thing Liz had ever done. The chance to bring her secret fantasy to life, to be a submissive—even just for one night—was worth any price. And Gareth was everything she wanted in a Master. He touched, he taught, he tantalized. He opened her world to pleasures she’d never imagined. But was it enough?
After one night turned into a blurred-line relationship, Liz’s feelings for Gareth went beyond desire. Yet the kink, no matter how hot, had her wondering if she could ever have a normal relationship. Her Dom was a man with a tragic past and he’d put rules in place from the start. If Liz chose to break them would she lose the intense passion she’d just discovered—as well as the man she loved?…
This book was pretty exciting. It was not my favorite Christine d’Abo book, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Liz and Gareth’s journey to their relationship starts out spectacular. They meet at an auction, where Liz’s best friend Connie introduces her into the world of BDSM. Their eyes meet from across the room and Liz knew she was done for. I loved getting a glimpse into her world, and her wanting to test the waters to see if she was a true submissive.
However, I do feel the story fell a little short on Gareth’s side. Sometimes he was just there; encouraging Liz on her journey, but never revealing any true feelings. I do like how Gareth put aside his role in order to seem more normal for Liz when she was going through a tough time because of the whole debacle with her boss. So I do give him kudos for that!
While I did really like the story, there were times when I feel like their story just fell short. It is broken up into 3 parts, and I believe that helped the story move along. I will definitely be reading more by Christine in months to come.
