What a wonderful beginning to a beautiful Dominant/submissive romance. Iris is visiting Paul to interview him for the magazine she works for but she got a whole lot more than an interview. Paul lives a solitary life but he has done his homework on Iris so when she arrives he leads her into a sultry and sexy submissive experience, something Iris never knew she needed or wanted. A connection is born that neither wants to break when she has to return to the city. Will Paul be able to "date" Iris? Can they make a long distance Dom/sub relationship work?

*This book was provided through the PAC Romance Group in exchange for an honest review. Wow! What can I say? I usually tend toward longer books, but this novella did not disappoint. Laila has a way with words. I felt like she was painting pictures for me, and the descriptions were vivid, decadent, and used all five of my senses. I was mesmerized from the first chapter. It was so easy to feel the emotion of the main character, Iris. From the beginning, you know that she's come to this small seaside town to interview a reclusive screenwriter, but Paul is far from what she expected, and her visit turns into something so much more than a simple interview. Instead, she follows Paul on a journey of self-discovery. It's provocative and intense, and as the hours pass, Iris lets down her shields, opening herself to honest introspection. And the story from start to finish is H-O-T, hot! It's edgy, pushing limits, and making Fifty Shades seem like a poor substitute. Laila doesn't just write the stereotypical book with erotic undertones or BDSM scenes. There was so much more substance playing under the surface. Driftwood Deeds definitely isn't something I would have typically picked from the shelf, but I'm glad I did, and I would absolutely recommend it to those who like their books steamy, but with a little more depth. Great read!

While this novella was a little more graphic than what I am usually interested in, the writing was exquisite. At one point in the book, Paul describes Iris's state of mind as sub-space, "where talk seems unnecessary, thought too." This simple statement also describes the mood of this story. It brings you into the same place as the characters.  It is a short read, I finished in one sitting, but it is a story that stays with you. Laila Blake has created two memorable characters and given a glimpse inside their world that is not only erotic, but thought provoking as well. She describes the relationship between a dom and sub in a way that someone like me, who is not part of that world, can understand on a deeper level. This story is not really even about sex, it is about surrender of control and the freedom that can bring.

This is a sweetly spun tale of romance and sex, written with intelligent prose without sacrificing the seriously hot scenes. A great deal of time is devoted to the theme of communication and consent in a BDSM relationship without going preachy, and while still maintaining a great deal of realism. Iris is no innocent, and Paul is not a god: they're both very human, and develop beautifully and honestly through the story, together.
