it was amazing
Military, Law enforcement/ Fire officers as well as many agency staff put their lives on the line every single day that they serve, most hopefully live through and for the most part enjoy their chosen career, but there are also many that don't. Some are killed in action, some injured and for those, many it is life changing. For others it is more of a mind injury a result of things they have seen, heard or experienced, maybe being captured and tortured or form an extreme fire with massive loss of life. Lots of reasons and causes but it doesn't make it any easier for those that live with PSTD, so many different triggers can set it off. Samantha has written an incredibly powerful and sensitive story that covers just a small bit about this subject. Written in a way any one of us can get an understanding of what it is like and how it can affect those struggling with it, also a possible way to help get a little control back.
The build up from previous books to finding the Dom serial killer hits its peak and I have to say "awesome job Samantha" she kept me guessing to the end. I loved Logan and Dakota, they seem quite evenly matched in all ways. Logan especially took my heart I guess mostly because he was still fighting and willing to try anything that may help make life just a little easier to deal with, but even then still wanting to honour his buddies. I look forward to getting more of both of them in future books.
Plenty of suspense and tension plus the dealing with the PTSD helps to keep your heart racing and you sitting on the edge of your seat. Some very serious issues dealt with in this story but we do also get glimpses of humour here and there. I am in awe that this author still manages to out do each book, I keep thinking each will just not be as good as the last, but each time she proves me wrong. Not only is each as good as the last but they are even better. I feel blessed and privileged to read her stories, the Trident and Omega series are definitely my favourites. I see another big hit with this one, fantastic read.
Logan's struggle with PTSD was brilliantly handled. The description of his captivity was brutally hard to read. It gave me goosebumps. It was so well written you felt his pain and the anguish of his loss. The desensitization program conducted by the whip masters was fascinating.
The pairing of Logan and Dakota was white hot. She was strong, independent, focused and secure in her submission. Logan coming into his own as a Dom teally enhanced the healing of his mind and soul.
Samantha A Cole is a gifted writer. She draws in her readers with imaginative, well crafted stories, strong characters, lots of suspense and twists and turns. Reading one of her books is time well spent.
Police officer Dakota Swift has been trying to the Special Operations Division and has pretty much decided to go a different direction after being passed over so many times. She accepts an assignment to work with the joint task force that includes TPD, FBI and Trident Security to finally locate and discover and take down the serial killer "Kink Killer". A serial killer that is targeting submissives who are involved in the BDSM lifestyle.
Logan and Dakota go undercover as Dom and Sub. What I really liked about this book is we follow along with Logan who has absolutely no experience or knowledge of the BDSM lifestyle and we learn along with him.
Logan and Dakota's attraction is instant and builds as the story goes along. The sex scences are sizzling.
The serial killer has been active in several books and the anticipation of who this killer might be has been driving me crazy.
I don't think I have ever had an author that writing seems to get better with each book like Samantha's does. She has an amazing way of writing that pulls the reader right into the story.
Build up of suspense, intrigue in this book is unbelievable. It gets very intense. I seriously could not put this book down. I was at the edge of my seat when the sub escaped the killer. I felt like I was looking behind her to see if he was coming after her. I was also yelling at Logan to hurry back to Dakota's to save her.
Was the killer who I thought it was...no. I was completely surprised.
Absolutely loved the faithful portrayal of Cowboy, and all he endured and continues to suffer with PTSD. Dakota was a strong, independent woman unashamed of being submissive. The character of Charlie really got to me, for being so adorable and for what he meant to Logan.
The only thing that bothered me was the relationship between Logan and Dakota, I didn't expect it to be the main storyline but it felt more like an afterthought. They took such a backseat to the background, overall story arc, and other characters (all of which were amazing) that when their relationship was portrayed, it felt rushed.
It's probably just my own feeling, as Samantha is a brilliant author and still one of my favorites.
