I think this is probably a 3.5 star but only because I reserve 5s for epic, life-altering literature...
****Possible Spoilers Ahead****
***Not kidding, May contain Spoilers**
Light BDSM, very sexy, not the most explicit I've read, but I couldn't read this in public.
Definite alpha male
Triggers: one intense non-consent/rape scene
Tahima takes time off from work to restore her granddad's cabin in the mountains. When a Cessna crashes nearby and a gorgeous, well-dressed man spouting profanities in Italian practically lands at her feet, Tahima quickly realizes this guy (Rossini) is 1)a Dom and 2)an Italian mobster running from the law after killing his father. But, Rossini isn't all Tahima thinks he is, and Tahima turns out to be more than she ever knew she could be.
First, UBD (I'm lazy. Don't judge me) is so well written that I found myself liking, understanding and rooting for the main characters. Stonor's managed to build intimacy and genuine feelings for character in a novella. It's not easy to do as the graveyard of underdeveloped novellas on my Kindle attests to.
The sex scenes are sexy. The BDSM thing is waaayyy overdone. Way overdone. But, interestingly enough, that's not what dominates (see what I did there) the story. In fact, I don't read a lot of BDSM (not really my thing), but for once the relationship seemed to overshadow the physical/sexual acts.
Finally, the ending was nicely done (if a bit hasty) and left me wanting to read more about the life of these characters.
My only tiny little gripe? The use of the term "Sakes alive." Sakes. Alive. Several times. I have never met anyone under the age of 80 who used that term. So basically I've never heard it used in real life. I think the author is British, so maybe it's more common over there. If that's the case, my apologies.
Looking forward to reading more from this author.
She ends up with a mob boss on her hands, his plane wrecked just outside her cabin. She bravely turns the tables on him with a Taser, cuffs him up, and they're off. Gotta run, bad guys are on their way. Their two day trek through the wilderness is the journey of an Alpha male Dom learning to submit to her complete control of his every moment. He resists her guidance, but at the same time works his way under her skin and into her heart.
The girl has some serious emotional baggage, a former submissive who was taken for a ride, utterly abused. But now it's her turn to become a Domme. Role reversal. She has a little too much fun with that Taser, learning where it hurts most.
There are some very hot scenes, some very intense BDSM scenes, and even one of those "deliverance" moments with a good ole boy in the back country. A gripping tale to be sure. I read it all in one sitting, yelling at the kids to leave me alone so I could finish.
If you're into hot kinky sex and BDSM with a tale of genuine romance in the mix, read this novel.
