Author Leah St. James writes a suspenseful story that will send the reader on an edge-of-the-seat action ride. She handles the bondage, dominance, sadism/masochism aspect in a non-salacious and non-judgmental fashion. David is well-drawn. The reader knows about his background and what he’s thinking. What you see, is what you get. Not so much Anna. St. James makes the reader wonder, like David, who she really is. For good reason. Be prepared for more twists than a mountain road with surprises around every curve. Well done, Ms. St. James.
I bought this book however, based on the subject behind the plot. Despite any research done the author clearly has no idea about BDSM and the real dynamics that make it work. The idea of only men as Doms is annoying, but the condemnation of that idea as 'soul crushing' shows a lack of any understanding.
Had this author written about something familiar to them it could have been five star all the way. Just wish the research for this book had included interview with real lifestyle people, including submissive men like me.
If you think 50 shades of gray is the real thing you will love this book. If you are really in the lifestyle you may be so annoyed that the good writing goes unnoticed.
After arriving on the scene David and Anna realize something is beyond not right on the shores of New Jersey. The woman was brutalized then dumped like yesterday's rubbish but those are the first of the red flags going off in David's mind.
When the investigation starts to go deeper into the details, and uncover the horrors of discovery are more than even hardened FBI agents are used to. Human trafficking is not where David or Anna thought the investigation was leading but once it takes them there, the steps to stop the nightmare will be done. Regardless of who is on their side, or will back them up David and Anna are partners during work hours and more importantly after they clock out.
This book takes a realistic look at the brutality of human trafficking and what steps everyone takes to stop it. The depth of Anna and David's characters come through on each page showing how a well-written story unfolds regardless of the content. There is also a twist that no reader will see coming.
Ms. St. Claire has written a thrilling romantic suspense. She kept me turning pages and unable to guess what would happen next. Her story shows the depth of her research and breath of her imagination.
I couldn't quite fall in love with the hero. But her heroine is well-developed, multi-dimensional, and empahethic.
Although I found a portion of the sexual content personally disturbing and some readers might appreciate a warning that this is not a typical love story, the lifestyle described by the author is believable and integral to the plot.
Ms. St. Claire has done a wonderful job of weaving romance, suspense, and the dark side of an alternative lifestyle into an excellent debut novel. I'll look forward to reading her next foray into fiction.
