~ Review ~
All I was hoping for was a good erotic read when I started this. Holy WOW did I love this story so much! It does have strong BDSM themes and they are not candy coated as some other books might portray them. They are gritty and rough but I never once felt that the Dom/sub relationship was abusive or humiliating.
"There's this- this brilliant fire, like the heart of a newborn star, blazing away in you. No ordinary person can utilize that power even if they could imagine it." ~ Noah
The characters were great. Piper is literally a genius but wants someone to control her in the bedroom. She's a self proclaimed nerd, but I think she's super cool. She was never annoying and never afraid to speak her mind. Noah is a hot Alpha make with just the right sweetness ;). The perfect combo for me!
"I never imagined a kiss could hurt. This one did. And it was the very best kiss of my entire life"
Yes this story was a lot about sex and a Dom/sub relationship but you also got so much more. Enter, a trip around the world, Ethan, a dead ex submissive and the explosive last 30% of this novel! I was so excited to stumble upon this and can't wait to tell all of my porn reading friends about it!!! I should also mention that August Clearwing's writing was sharp and the plot's twist and turns made me never want to put the book down. I want to make my own list of 'Nevers' now and get started!!!
