Anne, who has historically been depicted as a powerful sadistic Domme, was a mere shadow of her former self. Her self-doubt (am I a good enough cop/investigator, am I a good enough dom) made her feel weak and uncertain throughout. The "I hate change" theme never really rang true - she bounced around through a lot of careers - military, cops, skip tracing - for a 35 year old, so change has been a constant in her life. She's had lots of slaves - again, change is a constant. I was left feeling like the author had to tamp down Anne's domme-ness because her readers probably wouldn't have like to see Ben treated in a harsh way by the heroine. By the end, she was neither a sadist, nor a convincing bedroom only domme. Sadly, her motivation to be a sadistic domme was of the "I hate men because they've been mean to me" variety - I really dislike misanthropy as much as misogyny. Now that she like a guy, her motivation is gone.
Ben wasn't really a sub, no matter how many times Anne called him one. He was playing a game to get the girl. A game he enjoyed, no doubt. But just because you can follow a leader, that doesn't make you a sub. In every single sex scene, he took over at the end. While she gave the appearance of giving him permission, it was inevitable that this was going to happen. Again, most of us read CS because she draws great alphas, and Ben was an alpha, albeit tamer than many others.
I haven't read a mommy-porn genre book yet that didn't have the domme essentially turn into a switch, and I think this book tried not to go this way. It may have been stronger if the author purposefully did do that so we could follow a journey of self discovery, instead of all the internal angst and protestation that Anne put herself through. Without any real underlying plot to keep the reader involved, it was kind of like watching the tide come in - a slow progression of erosion of Anne against the unstoppable desire of Ben. That made it boring.
It's clear Uzuri is the next lead character. As she is immature and skittish, I double I will read her story.
I truly enjoyed the growth and blossom of Ben as a character in this book and also as the guard dog and protector he has always protayed. It was a treat for the readers who fell in love with the gate keeper over the last ten movels. Nice work Cherise and it is always a pleasure to see the ladies in action. I do though have a request for Travis to become a Master.
Mistress Anne is a strong, independent woman. Living in a men world, she have to prove herself in her family, her work, in every aspect of her life. Her tough persona is designed to keep her from getting hurt, but she is a sweet person who only wants to have friends, family and her father's respect.
Those who have read the other shadowlands' books may think they know Ben, but he is more than a security guard. He sees that Anne is more than a Domme, she is also the woman he wants, and he makes it his mission to get her.
Anne and Ben are both strong, and they know the strenght of the other, Ben knows that she can fight her own battles, Anne learns that she can relly on Ben and be herself.
I loved the story, because for me, what Anne have is the ultimate fantasy: having a strong, confident, powerful man that could easily break you, at your service is so hot. And I love that because of Ben's confidence, Anne can let herself be soft and even vulnerable. Ben respects her, lets her be herself, even when he doesn't like the risks she is taking, he respects her decisions. The two of them are just so sweet together.
I also loved reconnecting with my favorite couples, especially Kim and Rauol, and the Shadowkittens.
