It's now about 2 hours later (2.5 maybe), and here I sit to tell the world what I thought.
Well... my butt has not moved from the couch. I've been absolutely invested in Vincent and Nell and this bloody incredible book.
My knowledge of Dominant/Submissive only extends to a movie called The Secretary with James Spader and Maggie Gyllenhaal watched years ago, plus one book, the name of which I no longer remember but remember I liked.
So this is out of my comfort zone. I saw some excerpts of The Arrangement on various FB and blog interviews and I just knew this author's writing would be a style I'd adore. So I took a chance on a newbie author. What can I say? Sometimes, a reader and writer just click.
Emotion crawled, flew and exploded off the page for me, between Vincent and Nell. It might not work like that for everyone, but that's what it was like for me.
I love Nell's commitment to Vincent. I loved the vulnerability of both characters.
I thought the description and use of Nell's first person POV was just perfect for the story being told.
Congratulations Nicolette Hugo. I thought The Arrangement was brilliant and I highly recommend it. #FanForLife
Overview. (Might have spoilers). Nell is a strong woman raised in a good normal family but lost her dad about 10years ago. She seen how her mom stopped living. So she set goals to be a lawyer and partner and not fall in love until she was set in life. But Vincent offered her a contract to explore the BDSM lifestyle and still have her normal life. But what Nell found was love. She loved the pain and pleasure that Vincent brought her. But Nell could not figure out how to except the two parts of her life and how to fully trust Vincent with her heart. Nell fights and loses in a lot of ways until she finds it in her heart to love and Trust Vincent 100%.
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of BDSM books and for me this one stood out miles ahead of the rest. Why? Because it was real. No billionaires, no helicopters and no fancy mansions. Both Vincent and Nell had normal down to earth jobs and for me this refreshing to read a BDSM book with normal people that are lovable and easy to relate to. The characters have an instant deep emotional connection that is visible from the start. At one point when Nell told Vincent she loved him I shouted out loud ‘say it back you idiot!’ half scaring my husband to death with my outburst.
I love Ms Hugo’s style of writing, it’s clear, eloquent and articulate and I love the way the emotion is shown throughout the whole story especially through the sex scenes.
This book is an intense realistic read with a well-executed storyline that will leave the reader wanting more and pining for the next book by Nicolette Hugo. Now go! Read it!
I came across this book through a connection with the author and, as I'm an honest person, I felt I could write an authentic review for those who don’t normally read this type of book.
My first surprise was how, at its core, this book seemed quite ‘normal’. It’s very much a story about two people trying to find each other and the doubts, miscommunication, and issues that ensue. To me, the BDSM theme was more of a backdrop. There were only a couple of scenes where I felt I’d wandered into a world I knew very little of, but those scenes had the effect of highlighting the authenticity of Nell and Vincent’s unconventional relationship. That said, I'm quite accepting, so those with strong conventional views may find this more shocking than I have.
Credit goes to Nicolette for weaving a compelling and page turning story in which I felt close to the characters. The scenes are imaginative and it was easy to experience and picture each one—the sex scenes in particular were extremely sensual and arousing.
I've given this book 5* based on my expectations of the genre. From what I've heard, this book breaks the mould by showing BDSM in a realistic setting with believable characters (unlike Fifty Shades), and I'm excited to see where Nicolette takes this angle in her series. With a début like this, I'm keen to keep reading.
