Review- Where to start, where to start...
Let's start with what I liked. Lauren Jameson sure knows how to deliver a story that gets a girls panties wet. She is thoroughly descriptive within scenes and their surroundings. The characters and their personalities were clear and realistic and were easy to make connections to.
But I've read it all before.
Hot, rich guy falls for young, ordinary girl with little money. Both with rocky pasts they want to keep secret. He has a secret life as a BDSM master and she has had a quiet sex life. Never really enjoying sex. He has a 'dungeon'. (What came to mind was 'red room of pain'). She sneaks into it to get a better look at it while he's still sleeping. She signs a contract to be his sub. There's a lot of back and forth of "we can't be together", "but I can't stay away". He uses the word "mine" while warning off other men. I mean, let's be honest, we all know where we have read this before.
While I praise Lauren for her writing ability, I can't do the same for her lack of originality.
