Ok, I confess an absolute bias in favor of this author, Cherise Sinclair. The reason being, I've been reading her books since day one and every single one is a 5 star experience. This book continues in her BDSM world building with more Doms and Subbies and the need to try and remember they are fictional characters, even though we want to invite them over NOW!

All the previous reviewers have provided details on the characters and the story line so I won't be redundant. I will say that I find the story of Abby and Xavier to be the kind of emotional thrill ride I've come to love from this author. Never a dull or slow moment. The details of the BDSM experience are one of the outstanding elements in all of Cherise Sinclair's BDSM books. Her Doms are definitely "fictional" but they have a basis in "reality" not "fantasy", not life style research minus actual experience. That, plus Cherise's outstanding writing ability and her personality, keep me coming back for more, yelling at her in reviews and on Facebook to "WRITE FASTER DAMNIT!".

Her writing style, wonderful characters, realistic but entertaining content, her incredible sensitivities to the BDSM world, its issues, and those who inhabit it or desire to, along with her totally sick twisted sense of humor, keep me coming back again and again. I appreciate that one of the messages of this book was that BDSM does create family like environments and it is far more a mainstream practice than most people would know or guess.

I love that Cherise always provides real world advice and warnings, that should absolutely be taken seriously. Such as always have a safe word and safe environment and safe partners, and "Don't glare at the dom, moron.".

I think Dark Haven and Shadowlands should have reciprocal visitor agreements and hope the author will agree to this or that she can be forced into this by her street gang, which I understand is unrelenting but well dressed with bags of swag to give away.

The main characters were poorly drawn and emotionally flat. A particular punishment scene seemed more like a gang rape with a sence of coerced consent that to me seems absolutely incongruous with a caring relationship. For some better reads in this genre I recommend Submisdive Beauty or the Brie series.
