OUCH! I just burned myself on the book! Yes, folks, it's HOT. VERY hot. Not for the faint of heart; has some serious BDSM content. I received this as a free review copy from the author; as such, I felt I should give it a review -- an HONEST review.
Now to the review... I read this as the "boxed set". I will admit that if I had read it in pieces, after the first part, I probably would NOT have continued on reading. My advice? READ IT IN ITS ENTIRETY.
I have recently become hooked on Nikki Sex's works; not (just) for the oozing sexuality coming off of each page, but for the fact that she can tell a STORY. (Check out her latest ones about "Carmen"!) It's not just some gratuitous sex scene to scene to scene, but it IS a story. You find yourself caring about the characters, even if you don't like or understand them... or like or understand what happens to them. (Not being definitive because it would be a spoiler!) What Nikki Sex is able to do is immediately bring you into the character's mind (a little bit of reader Stockholm Syndrome, eh?) so that you feel their helplessness, anger, confusion, etc... (Again, trying not to spoil anything.) Not only did I absolutely HATE "Sir" in the beginning, I have to admit that the twist as to how/why Elizabeth & Mark ended up being kidnapped was a great one, and as a reader made me reevaluate EVERYTHING I had been thinking up to that point. I think it takes a great story to have a reader feeling very strongly about a character, and then have them to the point where they are able to admit to themselves that they were a bit too quick to judge.
This is a great story, and especially a great introduction to Andre Chevalier (oh la la!). PLEASE read it as a boxed set and just grit your teeth through the first part - it gets easier as the story goes on to understand the "big picture". Great set - now to go check out "Bound & Freed"!!
