"I was blown away by this debut novel by author Livia Grant. First, it is very well written and the story was so gripping it wouldn't let me go until I finished it. I lost sleep over this book. Second, Livia Grant did something that many other authors don't do--she took risks by tackling a taboo head on. No, not BDSM. Infidelity. Brianna Lambert does that when she cheats her husband. And Markus does that when, knowing of the physical abuse in her past, he washes his hands of her and abandons her to be caned, whipped and God- only-knows-what else until she signs divorce papers. Yet the reader has sympathy for both of them. The emotions are raw, honest, and real.
This is not a typical erotic romance (I would call it erotica, but even then it's not typical). For a good part of the book, "hero" Markus isn't even in the picture--the story shifts to his friend Lukas who administers the punishments. And then it shifts again to Tiffany, Brianna's BFF, who goes in search of Brianna when she turns up missing.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a gritty, edgy novel that lays it on line. For BDSM and spanking fiction fans, Wanting it All is a must read." ~ USA Today Bestselling Author Cara Bristol
