Part 2 is not as explicit or shocking in the few intimate acts contained within, but has a wonderful start. It does end with a HEA, but would have like a more detailed ending and more one or two more lessons in humanity / feelings to try and demonstrate something strong enough to get him back on track. These are the reasons why I gave it 4 stars iso 5.
Here is a brief recap to the start:
Lord Adrian wakes up after being drugged by Jane. He is shocked as the things done to his person is slowly revealed. He has been collered, caged, and pierced in two places. He is also made aware that certain percautions have been taken to equal the size and strength differences, but he is not really focused on listening to what she has to say. He have to learn the hard way a couple of times. He also is shocked that his most loyal and trusted servant agrees with her and supports her efforts. Adrian continues to struggle with how his world has spiraled out of his control, when he learns that she has been completing some of his missives for the past few weeks. Everything has aligned to give her about a month to help him get back on track. The ones that have known him since childhood agree that as a boy he showed so much promise, but now when some believes he is the last good hope for the entire empire, he is off track and out of touch.
I am going to stop there so I don't accidentally provide a twist or revelation.
I volunteered to read and leave a honest review for an ARC of this story.
Adrian awakes and soon realises that Jane has the upper hand; she has a month to ensure he becomes a better man, the man he is meant to be, and she doesn’t intend to waste a moment. While it might be hard for Adrian to accept this, she tells him it is for his own good. Adrian needed some sense of being in control, of something, anything and from the beginning he had tried his level best to deny Jane her humanity; but Jane has seen him as no one else ever has and now he knew what she wanted. Jane wants him to feel, to acknowledge that he cares, and to recognise the humanity of others; and, in the process, to accept his own. Adrian had begun to suspect that his assumptions about Jane were wrong; she had searched out knowledge instead of it being spoon fed to her as it was to him. But even then he had resisted seeing her for who she really was, brave and courageous. Since the tables were turned on him, Jane had behaved better and more decently than he deserved and he acknowledged that what he had done to her was excessive and cruel. No man wants to admit that his world is coming apart, much less that he has no idea how to stop it. Nothing lay behind Adrian but a barren past. If there is any way forward he has to trust Jane; the one person who has been able to pierce the barriers he has erected around himself, the barriers that have kept him from himself. While Jane has tried to despise Adrian’s kind, what she has learned from him is that to be able to judge fairly, it has to be as an individual. Adrian realises Jane is different from other women and possesses a rare combination of strength alloyed with compassion; her understanding of his nature and even more extraordinary, her acceptance of it, makes for a richer existence. Jane is the most challenging and fascinating woman Adrian has ever met and the thought of being without her becomes intolerable. In Adrian, Jane had seen a challenge and he certainly lived up to the task, but what would happen at the end of the month when their time together would be over? Jane has made Adrian a better man, but will she also make an honest one of him too? A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.
