Overview

There's a fine line between pleasure and pain...

When she's kidnapped from the bar where she works, Nicky has to admit that she's strangely aroused. She always knew her possessive ex-lover Jackson Bledsoe, a notoriously famous tattoo artist, had a kinky side. But even for him, this was wild.

Jackson has his reasons. He and Nicky both share the same tattoo-a fallen angel that became even more than just part of their skin. Now, there is only one way for Jackson to rid himself of his obsession with her. Put her back under the needle, and get rid of the piece of art that made them one.

It's bringing out the submissive in Nicky-the chance to give her body over to a dominant male and pierce the boundary between pleasure and pain. Under Jackson's artful control, Nicky must confront her darkest desires and most sensual fears. As she and Jackson feed each other's addictive hungers, the game begins. It's only a matter of time before it goes too far...

    Starts out hot and fizzles

    The characters start out hot, troubled, and highly interesting. A page turner until about half-way through when the dom turns uncharacteristically uncertain and ridiculous. The biggest point of their history is down-played and resolved in a line or two at the end that was built up so long, one can't help but be disappointed at how quickly it's resolved. Leaving the reader wondering what the point was in giving such a heavy background that was so easily conquered.

    And the dom makes such a fuss about his insecurity, taking months to build it, only to be wiped clean with just a few sentences of dialogue that are neither original nor inspiring for the abrupt change. Not to mention that somehow the dom turns from man to part-woman in his nonsensical adoration of a domestic life in, oh, about, three seconds flat. And a scene that involves very minor violence seems to have not been used to its full potential. Followed soon thereafter by a female character switch that is neither brought to fruition nor makes any sense - making one wonder why it was even attempted. Complete with a stereotypical ending of so much gushing, the reader has to contemplate if the author conveniently forgot she was writing dialogue for a man.

    However, the plot is interesting and the first part of the book, as well as a few parts in the second half, do make it one worth reading. The male character could have left a powerful imprint on one's mind if the author had stuck to her original guns with him. But, he'll give you something to enjoy for the first half.

    more from this reviewer

    Anna J. Evans' lead characters make this a deep drama.

    In Pasadena, Nicky serves drinks at the Hard Way who was also a model for the Good and Trashy Lingerie Website. Tattoo artist Jack has not seen Nicky in person, though he frequents the net for her pictures, since they were foster teens in a house of horror. He has sent her letters from Vegas, but she never replies. Eight years and he still wants her and this time he plans to do something about his desire for her. He goes to the bar and abducts her; taking her into the San "Bernf**kadino" Mountains.

    Jack demands she summits to his dominance. Although she wants to as she always desired her Jack, she is divorcing a brutal abusive dominator so fears another such relationship. If she fails to acquiesce, Jack plans to remove the fallen angel tattoo they share. She wants to say yes, but is scared. As he keeps the seductive pressure up, she succumbs and comes around to thinking spankings and babies are an okay mix if you trust and love your dominant to listen when you say enough and to be kind like Jack is.

    This is a super BDSM romance with a whimsical angelic inky connection that enhances the story line. That tattoo ties Jack with Nicky, but he fears not Nicky with Jack. Fans will appreciate his efforts to show the woman he cherishes that a submissive can appreciate spankings from a dominant who loves her and knows how to care for her; while she learns there is those who psychotically abuse and those who lovingly spank. Anna J. Evans' lead characters make this a deep drama.
