Ashe Barker's exceptional!, This book's a mix of mystery, unseen circumstances, hidden agendas, erotic romance, and a totally unexpected outcome where absolutely nothing is certain. This is far more than a mere BDSM romance. I fell in love with Lily and Ben. Their chemistry flies off the page and tugs you into the story to the exclusion of all else. You're literally caught up in their lives, the mystery, the threats surrounding them. I fell in love with Lily from the start. She's spunky, rebellious, reckless, independent. There's absolutely nothing seemingly submissive about her. If that seems contradictory, you need to understand the intricacies, nuances, and beauty of BDSM. As the two ease into friendship, then hope for resolution of a decades old mystery, the dynamic changes. I was fascinated by Ben's dominance, which runs soul-deep. That juxtaposition of opposing personalities poses challenges beyond the investigation they face. Uncertainty faces the duo at every step. The mystery, obstacles, and obvious heartbreak facing them tug at your heartstrings. You'll never believe the ending. I've become a huge fan of Ms. Barker in a very short time. This book shows breathtaking descriptions of small town Britain. She crafts characters and situations in a very rare and realistic way, I couldn't put this book down. Quite simply, it's one of the best written mystery/tragedy/romances I've read in quite some time. I was very impressed. This book deserves no less than five stars. Congratulations, Ms. Barker, on a very special, captivating book!
One final note. Please be an informed reader! This is an ADULT book. It contains explicit language and BDSM/sexual scenes. This book may not be for you if you don't enjoy this genre. Think hard before buying any book you know you won't enjoy. There are book synopses and reviews available on Goodreads and all booksellers' websites. Use these resources. DON'T LEAVE A NEGATIVE REVIEW WHEN YOU KNOW YOU WON'T ENJOY THE BOOK. It's not fair to the author! She works very hard to provide a quality work product. If you know you'll object to the book's subject matter before you buy it, you're doing yourself and the author an extreme disservice.
Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!
Wow, what a book! I enjoyed guessing where the plot would take me, what twists might arise, and while I could guess some, I definitely did not guess all! Ms. Barker has a way with her writing that sucks you right up into the characters and into the drama that’s unfolding as though you’re right there with Ben and Lily! Ben was outrageously forward, but I also really loved that about him. There was no guessing where his thoughts might be or if he had any alternative motives. Lily was sweet, caring, a submissive with a curious backbone, but with some major secrets. I really enjoyed the two of them together, both in the bedroom (whew, those scenes were scorching and intense) and not, and I loved how many of the side characters came into play. There wasn’t a dull moment in this book and I couldn’t put it down once I started. If you love your romance with some kink and some mystery, this is absolutely the book for you!!
