I've never read a book that showed the complexity of BDSM like this. Not just the culture... but the layers a relationship can have between a dominant and submissive. The storyline was very unique and drew me in from page one. I just couldn't put it down. Each character within the story had a lot of baggage. They were willing to carry the weight of their past alone instead of allowing another to share the burden. I loved Nathan Ashcroft. He wan't a good man and he definitely didn't have a heart of gold. But for some damn I understood his pain and the need that he had to dominant. It is a part of who is and he wasn't willing to change. However, Nate did change. He didn't stop being a dominant but he understood what it meant to be in a dominant/submissive relationship.
Eva Gallagher drove Nate to change. There were many times throughout the story that Nate tried to stop himself from changing. He didn't believe that his type of monster deserved any form of love. Eva didn't see it that way and became catalyst that made him change. Change himself. Change his environment. There were so many times that I highlighted throughout the book. Some which I really had to stop and reread. One of my favorite quotes is when Nate compared Eva to a diamond. He stated, "You remind me of a diamond--exquisite and resilient. Your radiance shines in a world dark with desire and lies. And even in the harsh light of our truths, where other's fade, you shine." This quote made me stop and smile. I wonder... how a dominant who loves to degrade can say something so beautiful? This is only the first book in the Sins of Seven. Damn... If this is only the beginning... It is already so epic. I know that is going to continue to get better and better.
I also felt like Eva’s characterization was off. Sometimes she is portrayed as being sweetly submissive and catering to Nate’s darker kinks just because she likes to please and other times she is portrayed as having dark, rough, kinky desires of her own. The whole “mystery” part of the book and Eva’s past was pretty much a let down as well. So, this book is filled with well-wriiten BDSM scenes but a mediocre plot and an unlikable hero.
This story focuses on Nate and Eva. These two both have demons from their pasts, but deal with it in different ways. What brings them together is their love of kink. Nate has specific needs that will be very hard to read for some, like it was for me. Especially if you don't like sharing in a relationship. I think his initial actions prevented me from liking him much at first. But, if you can get past it, like I did, then you'll get to watch the magic that Dani Rene weaves to redeem him in my eyes. Eva is a strong woman, submissive when needed, but possessing a backbone and ready to fight for what she wants. I liked her a lot. She's got a heart, and she revels in her acceptance of herself as she is. Together, the two have an immediate connection, and as the story goes on, you can watch it sizzle more and more.
Overall I liked this book. It has the deep feelings and connection I always find in Dani Rene's stories, and more. We're introduced to a wide variety of other characters that I'm excited to see in other books. However, I still have to put up my warning: this is a dark book. Darker than anything I've read by Dani Rene so far. It's intense. I went through stages of hating and liking Nate, and certain parts weren't easy for me. I got through them, though, and I am better for it. It's a view of the BDSM world, both beautiful and bad, and there is plenty of detail in this club. It makes me appreciate the lifestyle more, if nothing else, seeing the level of trust the people build. You just need to be ready for action outside of the normal M/F in this one; it will push your bounds, just like Nate does. If you can handle the darkness, and the pet names that Nate calls Eva, I think that you'll really enjoy this book. And if you love your BDSM, then you definitely need to check this one out! It's a treasure trove, filled with kink, heat, story, and great editing.
I received a complimentary copy of the book from the author. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Glad I'm late to the party with this series and can read it completely from start to finish...I just know I'm going to enjoy every second of these Dominant men and the world weaved by Dani Rene.
The story is intense and kept me on the edge throughout. It's a hot, sexy and dirty book. There's also a beautiful love story that develops and shines.
There's an intensity that's difficult to explain but kept me from putting the book down.
This is the first book from this author but it won't be the last. A new favorite author found. She's in my top 5 list.
