Carter, the Ivy League (I guess, it's only mentioned once) grad, who fills in for his friend who has to leave suddenly as a personal assistant to self made billionaire (somehow? no clue what his business is) Lance who is at once "older" but also described as a boy. They fall instantly at love despite Lance's BDSM lifestyle until (randomly and very suddenly) a threat and a kidnapping happen within an hour. There is no build up to this, no warning except the note warning Carter off immediately before he'd kidnapped (like - why give a threat if you're just going straight to kidnapping anyway)?
The writing was alright, but really confusing at times as it jumped randomly between point of view within one page (hearing Carter's thoughts, then suddenly Lance's and even once the head of security).
There were sweet moments, and part of the BDSM stuff was depicted somewhat correctly. Overall, I would not read anything else by this author unless the writing style changes and the characters get a chance to develop (even after reading the entire book, I don't feel like I know Carter or Lance).
This is my voluntary, honest review after receiving a free ARC copy from Hidden Gems
Basically, Lance is a character that might be steamy in a book, but someone that you would move to another continent to avoid if you met him in real life. I honestly, just didn't really buy the chemistry between these two characters, and I didn't see any real evidence supporting their declarations of love. A part of this might be in the fact that the book was written in 3rd person, and switched back and forth between the two character's thoughts and feelings that I often had to stop and re-read a passage to figure out who was talking, and who was being talked to.
Overall, this was entertaining, but I wanted Lance to be a stronger, more realistic and experienced Dom. I wanted Lance to introduce Carter to his submissive side, and keep pushing his limits without completely breaking them in their first scene. I wanted a building of real trust, and not just an outpouring of lust. And just when this book is about to be able to deliver, we get an ellipsis of a weeks time where all of that pesky detail is glossed over.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
