The heroine, Wendy Dennison, unhappy with her success as a novelist, reeling from a failed marriage and suffering financial distress, mutters that pledge in the coffee shop where she writes. Predictably the words have no more left her lips when the mysterious Mr.B appears, promising her all the fame and fortunes she seeks. It's a familiar theme but with a twist: the dominance and surrender of a BDSM relationship. I am not a fan of BDSM and certainly not a practitioner, but Lisabet Sarai makes this world accessible to the uninitiated, revealing, most of all, that when all the toys and role playing are stripped away, at it's heart BDSM relationships are about trust and surrender. As usual with her work, there is plenty of sexual heat as well as graphic but tasteful sex and some dubious consent.
But there is the nagging question: would you sell your soul? Maybe you have already but didn't get anything for it.
I liked Wendy. She has to face herself and ask herself the hard questions--the easy way or take responsibility for her actions. Bub is all seven sins and more. When he is thwarted, he has his ways to bring Wendy to his thinking. The sex is hot but Wendy realizes it is not the total sum of what she wants. She puts Bub on notice but he thinks he can control her. Wendy's agent, Daniel, figures prominently in bringing Wendy back from the dark side. He is her source of strength. Wendy's choices may not be the wisest but Daniel is there to guide her when needed.
The story is interesting. Good vs. evil, easy or hard, stay or go. Wendy has to do a lot of soul searching to discover what she wants from life. Somehow, it was never what she thought she wanted. And when the fall comes nothing happens that Wendy expected. I think it turns out much better than what she wanted or expected.
As she progressives further and further into her fame and submission, she has to make some very hard self-reflections and decisions, and really decide how much fame and wealth is worth when she is faced with a possible “happy ending” with someone that is not Mister B.
At first I didn’t know how I would feel about the kind of paranormal aspects of the story. That’s really not typically my cup of tea. But the characters themselves really kept me reading. And I love how the story played out with Daniel and how it ended overall.
An ambitious but struggling author receives an offer she can’t refuse – success, fame, best-seller status, and all she has to do to get the royalties rolling in is sell her soul to the devil. A no-brainer, right? The devil delivers, but the price turns out to be even higher than Wendy thought.
I liked Wendy. I liked her no-nonsense attitude and her willingness to take risks to get what she wants. I also liked her ability to see herself and to understand her own motives, and eventually to make the right choices.
The sex is sizzling, both the human and supernatural varieties. Lisabet writes the most intensely sensual scenes and this short read is packed full of them. This might be one of her finest quick reads yet, and will appeal to readers who like their alpha heroes well on the dark side and a sassy heroine who is intelligent, independent and ready to kick ass.
