    Okay so I lucked out because Doris is one AMAZING woman and I wa

    Okay so I lucked out because Doris is one AMAZING woman and I was able to review this book for an honest review. And let me tell you OMG I loved this story. I WANT MORE!!! I'm so glad it is part of a series I don't think the next book will be about Slade and Petal ...but I want more Slade and Petal...I mean Laura. hehe

    This book was different and special for me because while I don't know the entire ins and outs of BDSM I have a general idea of the basics. It was nice to finally read a book where the girl knew what was supposed to happen and choose to be there. I've read 2 or 3 "BDSM" books (if you call it that) and the guy is always having to start from scratch in training the sub. The "sub" first off is never a true sub and submits, but they don't understand the true nature of the relationship and what it really means to be a submissive to a dominate. Now with that being said every new Dom/Sub relationship has to begin with some basics to learn about each other, but it was so different to read a story where the sub was there by choice, it wasn't her first time and she didn't need to be coaxed into it. She wanted and needed it. 

    So our story begins with Laura being auctioned to the highest bidder at a BDSM club. And just when she walks on the stage she sees a familiar face in the crowd. Not just any familiar face, but someone she's had a major crush on for as long as she can remember. Slade. And O.M.G. is Slade effing hawt!! I'd like to be auctioned for one night with him. ;) Anyways Slade wins Laura or better known as Petal. He takes her back to his room in the club and it get's interesting. While Slade is pissed that she is not only at the club, but that she could have been sold to someone else, he's also happy about it because for a long time Slade has has feelings for Laura too. So while in Slade's room he get's into his Dom role thinking that by being hard and ruff it will knock some sense into Laura and she'll wise up and leave. However, that's not exactly what happens.

    I find what happens at the end of this scene funny because there is pounding on the door and standing outside is Laura's brother, Michael. Ohhh and he's a cop. And let me tell you cop or not I'd love to get him alone in a room and beat the hell out of him. What a douche rocket. And by the end of this book I'm very satisfied with the situation Michael finds himself in. However, getting to that point is difficult. During this book we learn that Laura was engaged at one point and we find out that it was to Michael's partner. Something happened and she called it off and tried to tell her brother about the situation, but that didn't go the way Laura thought it would.

    But Slade tries to get Laura to open up to him and talk about what's been going on since he left. And Laura tries to make Slade see she isn't the little girl he left all those years ago. Can Slade and Laura find common ground with each other? Will Michael accept them? The lifestyle they live?  Will Michael and Laura work out their issues? There are a lot of miss-communications from the past that need to be cleared up and the question becomes will they? Could there be a possibility for these two in the future? Especially for a real relationship? Questions are answered and by the end of the book there are open possibilities. Like I said I can't wait to see what's in store for the next book because I need more of these characters. Honestly, I want more of Slade and Petal. I love how their characters interact together and compliment one another. They bring out sides in one another that others can't. And they have history which only adds to their "relationship". This was a quick read, but one that grabbed me from the beginning. Make sure to pick up a copy of this awesome book by an amazing author.
