For me, it comes down to the fact that (Bri)Anna is, in my opinion, unable to give informed consent. She has been in sexual captivity since before her 18th birthday and has never had consensual sex with a man. When Stephan rescues her, she is unable to even speak due to the abuse she suffered. I find it morally reprehensible that Stephan would pursue any sexual relationship with her, much less a D/s relationship, no matter how badly he wanted to cure her.
I think the general storyline (slave rescued by kind master) is a good one, but the choice of a badly-abused, barely-18-year-old main character ruined it for me.
First off this is not an easy read. It features the very real aftermath of sexual abuse, torture, and sexual slavery. This is a hard read and I was hoping that what happened to Brianna wouldn't be glamorized. It wasn't. Brianna is broken. Seriously broken. And Stephan for all of his patience is not a psychologist. He knows the BDSM scene. And so does the author. But after something like Brianna went through psychology is a must. And I was sad to see it wasn't there. I also didn't like Stephan punishing Brianna for inattention. It felt like a betrayal of her trust.
Ultimately while well written this was too hard for me to want to continue.
I loved how slowly Stephen and Brianna developed their relationship with trust and understanding. It was very hard for Brianna to talk to Stephen because she wasn't sure if or when he would snap and hurt her. She had been broken by the damage Ian did to her.
I will be thinking about this book as it was well written and the story was very gripping. God knows that this kind of thing happens more than we know. This book get you thinking about people like Ian and why they think they can do whatever they want to women because they have money.
I loved this book and had to finish reading it to find out what was going to happen. As usual the author has split this into 4 different books so you will have to buy the other three to find out what is going to happen. As much as I liked this book if I had know that I had to buy 3 more books to finish the story.
If you like spending money on more books to finish one story then I would recommend buying the the 4 pack (didn't know there was a 4 pack) which probably cost the same thing but you get the whole story at one time.
On the other hand, that's "reality" of D/s relationship speaking. If you ignore all that, this is basically the fairy tale of the gentle dom liberating a slave by weaning her off the total 24/7 power exchange and abuse and exchange it for a "voluntary" gentler D/s relationship... because that's the way he plays. It is both noble and selfish at the same time, and perhaps that's the reason I will want to read the next chapter... can Brianna be put back together?
