This is one of the most difficult reviews I’ve ever had to write because I find it very hard to make up my mind whether I liked the book or if I hated it. It was also one of the most difficult books I ever read, and while the story was good, the emotions intense, and the characters believable, I cannot truly say that I enjoyed it.

Let me begin at the beginning. Rory is a sub who is desperately looking for a Dom, but trusts the wrong man and ends up totally abused by Kane. Not just physically, but emotionally as well. The rest of the book is about his journey to understanding his need to submit, learning to trust again and rebuilding his life. He has enormous reserves of inner strength, and he needs them to survive what he is put through.

Gabe is a private investigator who has been tasked with figuring out who Kane is, since there have been several cases of severely abused submissives. He is also a Dom, and uniquely suited to figuring it all out. He falls for Rory, and is desperate to save him not just because Rory needs his help, but because he has lost a submissive who needed his help before.

So far so good. The story is more psychological than erotic, and I found that part fascinating. So why did I have such trouble with it?

I’ve been asking myself this question for a while. I read the book a few weeks back, and the story and characters are still with me. So you could argue that must surely be a good thing. And in a way it is. But a large part of the reason they won’t let me go is my utter horror at the last 15% of the book. Some of what happened was important for the story to work, for Rory to truly grow and for Gabe to understand that he was able to save a sub from disaster after all. My problem with it is the utter brutality Rory faces and has to deal with. A lot of that latter part was not only a lot more graphic than I was comfortable with, but – in my very personal opinion – was not necessary to make the story work. I guess that is really the root of the problem for me.

So, overall, this is where I’m ending up: this is an interesting look at a sub/Dom relationship which is far more psychological than romantic/physical. The characters came alive for me to the point that I still vividly remember them weeks after I read the book. There is a mystery, tension and some very realistic human interaction. But let me warn you: this is not a book for the squeamish. To see a character you have come to love and care for go through the horrible torture Rory suffers at the end is very, very tough. Well, at least, it was for me. If you are okay with that, you will probably like the book a lot more than I did.
