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 enjoyed this book, for the most part. I thought.
I liked the way the two started falling, their attraction growing. The sex was hot, I loved the D/s element. The Serious plot line I didn’t care for much, though I suppose it was a little interesting. I wasn’t reading for that.
But then, halfway or a third of the book left, it kind of ruined it for me.
When the Serious plot line starts becoming a danger to Grace, Sean pretty much kidnaps her. Without her consent, forcing her to hide with him and his team. And then he kinds of uses her, pushes her, goads her into not using her safeword, making it a challenge for her to stick with it. It could be looked at that she was fighting not to give in, or, I don’t even know…
To me, it was a misunderstanding of a safeword, and I cannot stand when this happens. This was the worst I’ve seen so far, though.
Sean tells her that he’ll end everything, their relationship, if she says the safeword. And she fights back, not saying it, taking the challenge like he means it. But a safeword is supposed to be for when something is too much. When a person pushes too far, you use the safeword and play stops. Either completely for the night, or long enough for the two to discuss, see what was wrong, reconvene on limits or mentality, and maybe continue if both want to. Safewording does not equal the end of a relationship, for gods sake.
The entire scene felt too forced and nonconsensual to me, and I’m honestly surprised I didn’t DNF. It’s definitely made me not want to read any more, though, and the rest of the book didn't make up for it.
