Dean Rogers is a 27 year old bartender who cares for and lives with his controlling and verbally abusive mother. He's a client of La Veuve Noire. He has no self esteem or confidence. He feels defeated, inferior and inadequate. He lives in constant humiliation. He quickly becomes possessive of his therapist, La Veuve Noire.
Jones is an ex-marine with blond hair and glacial, aquamarine blue eyes. He has a desire to explore BDSM. He's a dominant alpha male with a softer side. He doesn't want a relationship with anyone. His M.O. is to seek one-nighters with willing female partners. He doesn't do romance. But his entire game-plan is upended and on the brink of changing when he meets La Veuve Noire...and nobody is more surprised than him. He becomes obsessed of her and doesn't know why....
The Kid is a nameless 18-19 year old homeless waif, recovering from a traumatized and abusive childhood. He has no social skills and, though intelligent, has the emotional maturity of a child.
This is a semi-dark, raw and revealing story of the choices we make and the results of those choices. It deals with harsh topics such as suicide, self-abuse, human trafficking, child abuse and bullying. It's a profound story of dealing with the serious directions we choose and have to live with...choices that affect our future. I liked this story for the most part...I liked all the players and they synced nicely. La Veuve Noire is a strong minded, liberal and open minded individual. She embraces anyones' sexual preferences not normally accepted by the majority of the world. She constantly says "don't judge me" or people of a similar lifestyle as hers, yet freely becomes judge and jury to those who disagree with her ideas and philosophy. She's intolerant of those traditional minded people who also bear a right to their conservative beliefs and feelings and never realizes she ends up falling into the same category she places prejudiced and biased people...but on the opposite end of the spectrum. Ms. Chase delivered a profound and thought provoking piece of work, and though hard to read at times...it was worth the journey. I eagerly move on to the next installment... Falloir (Passion Noire Book 2)
She also teeters on the edge of the reader maybe being uncomfortable but I think that's a good thing. Anyone can write a "chic" romance book but it's a gift to write about an unconventional romance or a different type of romance and make the reader open their mind and feel someone else's view even if it's something the reader doesn't feel they would do. It's a gift to make the reader feel the characters pain and be able to connect with them.
This book had more than just sex, to be honest there were a few parts that were eye opening to me and surprising. I am pretty open and sexual but found myself learning a lot.
The book is written in 3 people's POV. I'm sure that was tricky but she pulled it off! The main female character was easy to like. It was interesting to see her strong and yet weak.
Dean is a frustrating guy who you find yourself hoping he gets his s*** together.
Jones is a guy you just wanna take to bed! She made him the perfect alpha male! I can't find any fault in him except he isn't in my bed. Lol
Of course the book ends with lots left to tell, I can't wait for the second and third book. I'm sure it won't be disappointing.
It took me a few chapters to get into it but once I did it was an amazing read, totally different from anything I have read in the past.
The story flowed, gripped me and have some interesting twists and turns.
Vouloir follow's four different character's, Le Veuve Noire ~ the very sexy, strong fronted domme who tells you like it is but underneath seems vulnerable, Dean a sexy mummy's boy who is desperate to give women pleasure, Jones a strong sexy alpha who thinks he knows what he wants and 'The Kid' a 17 year old who acts younger, lost, scared and afraid of his own shadow.
The life's of each one of them changes throughout the book each helping the other with past and present demons.
I cannot wait to get started on Book 2 in this series.
J. D. Chase has a great talent writing books. Not one time did I find myself lost and having to back track my reading. This book flowed perfectly! Can't Wait for book 2 in this series!
