Overview

BDSM Romance. Winner of the National Leather Association's 2008 Pauline Reage Novel Award. Erotic bdsm romance. The ideal D/s relationship for Anders and Maia is nothing less than total power exchange: no games, no negotiations, no safewords. When the two stumble onto each other in an on-line chat room, the fire of their offbeat sexual desires ignites and draws them together for an explosive sexual encounter. For Maia, Anders offers the kind of firm and unyielding dominant she has only dreamed of. For Anders, his new sub is as deliciously erotic as she is submissive to his will. During the first weeks of their relationship, Anders lays down rules for his new possession, while Maia gradually hands over her autonomy, slipping into the obedience that is basic to her nature. Anders explores, manipulates and experiments on both mind and body, all of which she laps up in a continuous state of terror and joy. Nearly three times the size of our standard novels. Over 440 pages in print, this beautifully written story depicts a master/slave relationship that is extreme, loving, creative, steeped in imagination, but embedded in the real world. In this passionate, private sexual reality, the balance of power tips only one way. Graphic erotic content.

This story is the best I've read about a power exchange that is deliberately yet gradually set up to meet the sexual needs of both parties. To any outsider looking in it seems far too extreme to be real. More in the nature of one extended kink scene than a carefully and sanely created life that is being constructed as hurdles are crossed, trust deepens and they joyfully realize that the other truly is the perfect match that they feared would never be found. Yes, the sex is extreme and the punishments brutal. But this is what they both thrive on and in the end they couldn't be happier.

I am forcing myself to finish this book. Little to no character development, very little plot. The main character is not a slave, she is a robot and frankly she bores me. In order to submit she would need to have some will of her own to give Him and she does not. A waste of money. Pity, I had high hopes after the review the author wrote to Carrie's Story.

their very hardcore lifestyle as a true sadist and masochist--very hard to take for my taste--rather depraved existence--except totally consensual. Prepare yourself for some very extreme reading.

There's lots of very hot BDSM in this book, but there could have been a lot more if it weren't for all the boring architecture and work stuff going on with Anders, who to be honest, seems like kind of an overbearing jerk. Maia tho is a really great submissive, and the scenes where she becomes kind of like an animal, a pet who crawls around and isn't allowed to talk, are incredibly intense!
