This one is really top notch - fantastic writing, strong and believable characters, humor, and hot wicked erotic BDSM! Grace is every womans woman in nearly every way - from how she thinks to the fact that her body isn't perfect. She's strong in all the good ways - the ways us normal girls have to be. We can't all be kick a$$ demon hunters you know! She is also willing to be open enough to be a little bit naughty but not the obnoxious brat type.
Sean is very hot - definitely alpha BUT not the type that gets his power from authority. He's the type that has it already inside - that confidence that says he knows what he is capable of and is very comfortable taking charge. Given his brother it would be all to easy to see how this character would have been written completely differently and there were a places he could have gone a bit south for me but Lexi kept him on track. His vulnerabilities are explored and talked about - and there are times he makes mistakes but he mans up to them and does what he has too.
I thought the twist in the old adage the way to a mans heart is through his stomach was deliciously ingenious. Who wouldn't want to have a hot man make scrumptious goodies? Of course there is something to be said for some good old fashioned chocolate syrup too.......
The plot is interesting and it really does flow very well - the sex and BDSM intertwining with it where it fits and not overshadowing the actual storyline but becoming part of it instead.
This reminded me of a Maya Banks novel (particularly her new KGI novels). Well worth your time and money -- and your pleading for the next one to be published! (I want Ian's story next though I can deal with the menage brothers -- just give us more Lexi!)
I was really intrigued by the premise of the story until Sean and Grace cross paths. He's 32 and she's 40. The way the characters were written you'd think 40 was decrepit. I found it really difficult to like Grace once she referred to Sean as a pup, who was only a few years older than her kids. He was ONLY seven years younger than her, what?! She had two children in college, how is that remotely the same? It was difficult to have any sort of interest in a romantic connection between the two after that. Grace's constant "I'm forty" schtick drove me crazy.
I also found fault with the, "he used his Dom voice" dialogue. What does that even mean? When dialogue is written in that manner it gives off the impression that D/s is theatrical, something that can be turned off and on at leisure. A Dominant is always a Dom/Domme, just as a sub is always a sub. It's considered to be a part of their personality traits. I felt some kind of way reading about vocal inflections being indicative of Dominance. In my opinion, He (Sean) didn't need a specific vocal inflection to make that known.
Considering it was hard for me to get into the budding relationship between Sean and Grace, I found myself more interested in the back story, which is ultimately why I continued to read. Overall, this wasn't a bad read. It was actually a pretty great read. The premise was outstanding, but I just couldn't connect with some of the author's choices.
Ms. Blake, I can definitely say I'd love to read more of your work. I enjoyed your writing style a great deal. I'm curious to know what happens to the secondary characters but I'm not sure I will continue with the series however, I will look forward to your other erotic reads.
This book, for me, was the perfect combo of suspense and steam. The characters were all very easy to fall in love with. Me. Blake knows what she's doing. I will definitely be continuing with this series.
