I received an ARC of this book from Rock Star Lit PR in exchange for an honest review.

I love BDSM romance novels. I mean, I know that not all BDSM relationships are fairy tales like they seem to be depicted in fiction. When I read the blurb for this book, I was immediately intrigued. Of course a lawyer is going to be a dom, right? There’s just something about these law men that exudes dominance and power. I just liked it that aside from being a law professor and a dom, there is also a deeper side to the male main character, and that’s the tragedy of him losing his wife and him trying to cope with her death and move on and all that.

I liked that the heroine was the wounded party in their tandem. I’ve read lots of books where the hero was the broken one trying to find his way back and his strength within the dynamics of a BDSM-centered relationship. In this book, they both mostly need and help each other. However, I feel like the heroine was the one who had a more tragic experience.

I can’t say that this book was extremely amazing. What I can say, though, is that it was sexy, entertaining, and easy to fall into. I know a lot of readers, especially those who like BDSM romances, will enjoy this book. It’s not the extreme BDSM like some of my favorites, but it has a good mix of pleasure and pain, so it’s still an overall solid read.
