Overview

The seductive world of The Gate continues with The Key...

Erika has reinvented herself as an author of erotic romance under the pseudonym, Lily Fredericks. After her eight month sabbatical in New Orleans, she's returning to Manhattan to promote her new book. Chris is handling her book tour and wants Erika to give him another chance. She's forgiven Chris, but Max is always in her thoughts. Sick of waiting for Erika to come to her senses, Max takes matters into his own hands. He'll go to New Orleans to claim her before it's too late.

With Erika back in Manhattan, both Chris and Max try to seduce her in the hopes she'll choose one of them. As both men battle for her heart, a woman from Max's past reappears, bent on revenge. Chris will ruin Max anyway he can in order to make Erika his own. However, Max has something up his sleeve to insure he's the victor, but not without a price--Erika's soul.

Can Erika choose between a man who seeks to possess and a man who can't live without her?

Erika asserts her independence and works to keep Max and Chris at arm's length as she tries to find herself and stand on her own two feet. She does let Max know that he is the man she loves. Chris is still a jerk as he works to roll out her new book. He's also brought in his sister Paige to torture Max and hopefully create the drama needed to get Erika away from Max. There are still a lot of unanswered questions so on the whole this relationship/triangle didn't move forward very much for me in The Key. Now, the storyline of Catherine, Raymond and Bryan got very interesting and to me stole the show in this book. There are several hidden surprises within this triangle and I must admit I'm more anxious to find out how this all plays out for the three of them. I am looking forward to part 3 to find out how all the tangled webs in both love triangles get resolved.

The Key picks up the story line that started in The Gate, the first book in the Dark Path series. I have not read The Gate, but it was fairly easy to pick up on the story line and the author does a good job filling in the back story that is necessary to the current plot line. I really enjoyed this book and liked the dual story lines within it, and it was interesting getting a peak into the BDSM world that these characters live in. You could really feel Erika’s need to find herself. She’s struggling with the loss of her father and trying to make sense out of her feelings for the two men who have tried to claim her. She’s determined to prove to herself and everyone – especially Max and Chris, her two suitors – that she can make it on her own and be the strong woman that she knows she can be. She had moved to New Orleans to try and get her life in order and make sense of her feelings, but her book is about to release and she must return to New York and face the two men that she ran from. What I loved about Erika is that you could definitely see her becoming a very strong woman, and although she struggled with her submissive reactions and feelings towards Max, you just got the sense she was going to be able to stand on her own two feet no matter what choices she made. When all sorts of craziness erupts around her, Erika has to confront her feelings and make some tough decisions – ones that will set the path to her future in motion. Catherine was another story. She has gone back to Raymond, her Master, but is still dealing with feelings that were stirred in her by another man while she was away from Raymond. When she is forced to confront those feelings head on things get a bit nerve-wracking…Raymond demands Catherine’s obedience, and you can just feel the tension as the events unfold around her. It was interesting to watch Catherine struggle with her submissive side, and even though we are left unsure where things will end up, I enjoyed the build-up of emotions that Catherine was trying to sort through. Of all the men I think I liked Max the most. As pushy, arrogant and egotistical as he could be, he always had Erika’s welfare at the forefront. And even though Erika continually fought her relationship with Max and tried to not let that spark between them drive all sense of reason from her mind to the point that she felt she was losing herself to him, Max was very aware of Erika’s needs and he didn't try to dominate everything about her. You could really get the sense that Max needed Erika and that need extended beyond a Dom/Sub relationship. I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the next one to see how things end up for Erika, Catherine and all the men. There were quite a few loose threads left at the end of The Key, but I think the main story lines were complete and the ending did a good job setting up the next book. The author does a good job with her character development and using all the supporting characters effectively to move the story forward and give it added depth. I’ll definitely be coming back for more of K.T. Grant! I was given a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

The Key is book two in the Dark Path series by K.T. Grant.  This book is not one I would recommend reading without reading book one first.  In fact, I really wish I had read book one again before starting this one. I had intended to, but just ran out of time. I really enjoyed book one and wanted to get immersed in the world again before starting this book.   We pretty much start about eight months since the end of book one. Erika has moved to New Orleans with a friend to get away from all the drama (and the two men) that was part of her life in New York. She wanted mostly wanted to get away from everything that happened in the first book.  She not only is she trying to recover from the many things that were thrown at her, she is also in the process of writing, what she expects to be a best selling erotica novel.  She is hoping that this will help save the publishing company that her father built.  It is putting more pressure on her than just a regular book release would on an author, as if that wasn't enough.   Christine talks to Max, that she is going on an extended vacation in Maui.  She plans to go back to her Master, who she has been avoiding for months.  Her hope is to be back in New York in less than a year. Christine has a lot to work through with her Master, from their past and from what has happened while they were apart.  She gets much more page time in this book, which I was really glad to see.  I loved reading her story.   When Max and Erika get back together, he has a real hard time not being the over dominate man that he Dom side wants him to be.  But Erika, is not the same timid girl he first met.  She is much more independent, than the timid woman from the beginning of the series.  That makes things much harder for him, because she doesn't want to take his word as law.  It causes many problems with this relationship that is just starting to be rebuilt.   Overall, I enjoyed this book just as much as book one.  It has some great plot lines between the different characters, there is pretty much two stories going on, one in New Orleans/New York and the one in Maui.  The characters all have very well developed and very strong personalities.  There are some very strong BDSM and menage scenes, which were very well written.   Like book one, this book ends abruptly. I was not real happy with where the story ended.  I'm not a fan of cliffhangers.  I can't believe I have to wait a year for the next book (book three is hopefully coming out in 2015, not sure exactly when). I can't wait to see where this story goes next.   This series is great for readers who like reading the BDSM and menage stories.  The characters are damaged and have a lot of healing to go through, so it is not just sex on the page.   **Book was provided to me by the author. This review is my opinion and was not requested or provoked in anyway by the author.
