The struggle between Raven and Alena continues in this story, pushing Raven to try different methods to get through to Alena while Alena struggles to obey without question. Now that the fun and games have died down a little, Alena finds it difficult to not question Raven's orders and understand the nature of their relationship. The book is aptly titled Raven's Diary and so the format of the story is largely in the format of diary entries from both Raven and Alena. It is fun to read their alternating entries because it gives Alena more space to be 'entertaining'. The first diary entry is probably one of my favourites. The diary entry format is handy for both of them because it allows both of them to communicate in a more open and calm manner. I'm sure a lot of us have experienced this breakdown in communication, where talking just wouldn't work. You just end up fighting again. (so hey, maybe you can try writing notes if talking isn't working - thank the author if it helps!)
Raven tries and eventually decides that they should have a vacation while they work on their relationship with the help of a friend. Alena has to learn to trust Raven, communicate with her and also try to understand Raven instead of just focusing on her needs and wants. While outside help may help get messages through to both of them, it is also a huge risk as there is a lot of room for things to go wrong. But as dire as things are, it just might open a channel for both to communicate and listen to each other.
In conclusion, the story is entertaining, and a really quick read. If you need a short break from work and you have a couple of hours to spare, you can definitely fit this book in! Alena keeps Raven on her toes, and that keeps you turning pages. The struggles that these two go through to communicate with each other make them relatable as people. Can't wait for the third book of this series!
From the author's notes, "...Wouldn't an independent, strong-minded, and reasonably well-adjusted adult struggle to accept orders from someone else? It sounds like fun and games, but Alena learns it's not...We may shake our head at Alena's stubbornness, but how many of us refuse to do what is best for us? Whether it's eating healthy food, exercising, not procrastinating, we struggle with our better and worse natures..."
From an outsider peeking in, 'Raven's Diary' is a fascinating character study and really well done.
One thing I was thinking about when writing this review is that Anastasia Vitsky has such a unique voice in this genre. There are plenty of books with BDSM but most of those are meant as erotica with the BDSM scenes themselves being the main focus. In that respect, Vitsky is very different. Most of the time, we aren't even privy to the actual dom/sub scene but we get the *impact* of such a scene as we lead up to it and we most definitely feel it afterwards as the characters explore what it means to them and each other. Really, really interesting...
Not to say that the books aren't meant to be erotic. I'm sure some readers feel that but it doesn't seem to be the main purpose of the story.
I enjoyed this follow up to Raven's Girl immensely! At first, I didn't understand why Alena couldn't submit but then I realized fear and mistrust inhibited her. Another wonderful book by Ms. Vitsky that I highly recommend.

I adore this story for a variety of different reasons. Alena is the quintessential bratty submissive.Read more
