I am becoming more and more familiar with this world. It looks as if I have a book or two to read by CD Reiss to catch up, which of course is always a thrill. Regardless of my "Drazen World" ignorance, I appreciated this well written purpose filled story which is touching and beautiful.
Yvonne (Eve) is a hardworking goal oriented recently single mother on the "run" from as we find out later in the book an alcoholic abusive husband. She really does not have time for nor is she actively seeking male companionship.
Our writer brings Sam and Eve together with lingering heated glances, palpable with the slightest touch...sexual chemistry and Sam's persistence in the pursuit of Eve.
The book offers a realistic reaction of an abused woman who is finding strength and security in her independent single self to any idea of male Dominance in the bdsm culture.
It is an initial not only no...but hell... no!
Yet, her first tiny taste of Sam' s Dominance made her weak in the knees. It was a subtle move but she felt the Dom in him awaken. And...of course being true to a Dominant's responsibilities, Sam is tender and loving after every sexual encounter.
When she asks him point blank if he ever participated in bdsm play, he was honest and told her yes. This was challenging to Eve because she was confusing the abuse she suffered at the hands of her ex husband with s/D play.
After seeking counsel from Monica, Jonathan Drazen's girlfriend and considering who Sam is and how he presents himself, she decides to take a chance, take it slow and begin a new chapter in her life enjoying and trusting that Sam would never hurt her maliciously.
This story is not without some interesting twists and turns at the end. The best is Sam recognizing that there just may be a little kink in the woman he calls "goddess" and "mine."
So many romance readers can truly relate to the particular themes in this story. I believe the writer captured a universal bias or fear woman have regarding bdsm, even though the thought of a loving Dominant male is swoon worthy. It was a lovely story that captures this dilemma with pitch perfect characters.
I truly enjoyed my visit to this corner of "The Drazen World" where the imagination of Ms. Beckhart set the scene with her characters and the insights gained from their stories. It's one-click to a new corner of a different albeit a very enjoyable world.
I really enjoyed how she wove certain events of Jonathan and Monica's story into Eve and Sam's story while keeping her own characters fresh and different in this new vision. It was cool to see characters from the Submission series in the eyes of these two mains. It was easy to understand Eve's plight and carry the utmost respect and compassion for her as a single, working, PhD student mother. Sam was swoon worthy and romantic throughout - it was fun to see him in this element outside of the Submission series. They were interesting in how they reacted to each other and I felt their passion when together. My favorite part of the book was the first date with Eve's young son Aaron. That swingset scene, yes please! And, just to say, having been to Temecula, CA and meeting this author while gathered there to meet CD Reiss it was super exciting to see the magical and romantic town of Temecula mentioned in Sam's history of his upbringing.
While I did find a little repetition of details and phrasing in the writing there's nothing here that greatly contradicted my enjoyment of the story. For a debut novella, Beckhart certainly earned her writing chops. She gave Sam and Eve a satisfying ending with the promise of more to come and I'm looking forward to that.
