In high school, senior Dante DeMatteo beat the crap out of junior Kara Crawford's cheating boyfriend for bruising her. Already having a monster crush on her hero that went stratospheric with his intervention, she regrets she never got to thank him as he was taken to the office by two teachers and then left for college. Several years later at Lucie's housewarming party, Dante and Kara see each other across the crowded room. With one glance, each feels the heat, but has doubts as he needs to be her dominant and she wants to be his sub. As they start a spanking relationship, he joins the law firm where she works. When each falls in love, they fail to come together as Dante and Kara fear going over the Pleasure's Edge of loving a relationship filled with desire. The key to this superb erotic romance is the fear factor as the protagonists are frightened to death with how deeply they love one another. This relationship anxiety leads to Dante and Kara confused as to what they want. Eva Berlin provides a heated but poignant BDSM romance. Harriet Klausner

3.5 Stars I love it when it rains. The sound of the rain drops hitting the roof and windows does something to me on the inside every time. I could stare out the window for hours watching the rain fall.... Kara Crawford and Dante De Matteo (what a great name he has!) are both at a mutual friends house for a dinner party one night. They haven't seen each other since high school. So when Kara sees Dante across the room, all grown up, looking handsome as ever and the firm contours of his body, she grabs her wine and takes off in the other direction. The last thing she needs is another romance. Kara is coming off a bad breakup after telling her now ex-boyfriend of her sexual fantasies. He thinks she's nuts, calling her a freak after she expressed a certain need to him. She can do without another person telling her she's not good enough...or a freak again. When Dante notices Kara after all these years, he sits down right next to her. They strike up an easy flowing conversation ending with a searing kiss reaching all the way down deep inside Kara...possibly igniting that certain need she was looking for? What happens next is something I'm normally not a fan of: sex in the beginning of the book. But because Eve establishes a relationship between these two and eased us into it, I was ok with it. After a fiery ardent weekend, Kara returns to work to meet the new partner at her firm. Dante. She is shocked to the core to see him there. Immediately, Kara wants to call off seeing each other. But how can she when she's finally getting what she wants in the bedroom...and liking it so much? It's what she craved, what she needed. Being the dominate authoritative man that he is, Dante tells Kara it's not happening; they're not calling of this thing they've started. And they don't. Kara is falling more and more each time they are together. But long deep rooted issues from her childhood are always in the back of Kara's making her question every action that is made by Dante. Did you ever have that feeling....that feeling where nothing makes sense at all but you're right where you're suppose to be? That's exactly how Kara and Dante are. Nothing makes sense to them. These burning desires and deep swirling emotions will leave these two in a challenging predicament. One that could bring them closer or tear them apart. There's something to be said about rain and sex mixed together that makes it so much more passionate, erotic. The idea of making love in the rain, the drops of water hitting your skin while in the act itself is sexy as hell. And the same goes for being inside when it rains. It provides a warm closeness that makes you want to curl up on a cozy sofa or bed and lay there on it all day. Kara and Dante have lots of steamy scenes in the water. Oh boy, were they hot each time! Is it possible to fall into subspace while reading one of Eve books? Because I think I came close to it. I swear, this book made me feel all the sensations Kara was feeling. Eve does not disappoint!

Review by Ivelisse: We all have sexual fantasies but can we really be honest with our significant others about what we want sexually without being judged? Kara Crawford has just been thru a bad break-up because she did just that. She told her boyfriend what she wanted to experience sexually and he flat out called her sick and disturbed. Kara never wanted to experience humiliation like that again. Dante De Matteo loves to play dominant games and when he sees Kara all grown-up at a mutual friend's party he decides he has to explore her body and see if she is up for his sexual games. Will Kara finally be able to give in to her desires without it breaking her heart as well? This book was absolutely wonderful. The interactions between Kara and Dante were always intense, even without the BDSM play. It was a perfect example of what happens when you let go and really talk to your significant other about the things you want. Kara finally gets the chance to explore the BDSM play and realizes this is what she has been longing for. When she comes to work after a long weekend with him, she sees he is now also a partner in the same firm she works at, she tries to keep it professional but Dante won't have it. A perfect example of how the submissive is always in control and how a dom treats his submissive. Eve Berlin unquestionably knows how capture the essence and the beauty of this type sexual play. The hero and heroine of this book do have issues that stem back from their childhood and plays a major role about how they view relationships now. I love the fact this story is one that can really happen between two people, when two people finally break down their walls and give love another chance and get their happy ever after. Fave line from book: "She hated that being female too often meant the reaction to anger was tears. It made her feel weak". (this is so true especially with me lol)
