Where to Buy
A quick story that obviously is mostly just meant to present a hot sex scene and serve as something of an introduction for a new series. Thin on characterization, which is only to be expected, it's hard to really feel the intense emotions that Kristin and Adare supposedly have for one another. Still, they are intriguing enough as characters to make you wish there was more to their story. How did they meet? What are they like as people? We get some sense of the latter, but not enough. Perhaps in the series proper we'll see more of them and get to know them better.
The sex is hot, but over a lot more quickly than I'd expected, and not really as rough as I'd expected either. He does restrain her hands through most of it, but there aren't any BDSM elements besides that, and while the sex is fast, hard, and rough, it's far from brutal. From the description I'd expected something more violent that would seriously endanger her, but such is not the case. As such, it was a bit disappointing.
Pretty standard basic premise for the world/series, but it might be worth a look. I'm not sure yet if I'll read more of it or not, but I'm at least willing to consider doing so.
