Overview

In a world where sex slavery has been legalized, sometimes being a part of the system makes things very complicated. Gavin's been a trainer at a slave brokerage company called Cascade for a very long time--ever since he earned his way out of his own slave contract. Now he's met someone he'd actually like to own: a new slave named Alex. Gavin's lover, Sam, is understanding and supportive--and very interested in bringing Alex home--but Gavin isn't sure it's such a good idea. He'd better think fast, though, because he's not the only one interested in Alex.

I was expecting to enjoy this novel, set in a near-future-style society in which owning sex slaves is legal and normal. I wasn't expecting to absolutely adore it, but I do. The characters are engaging and sympathetic, the plot arc rests on real, adult considerations (rather than contrived romance-novel communication failures--in fact, these characters talk ABOUT the tensions, in clear language! Like adults! What a nice thing to see in an erotic novel). The BDSM elements are both deliciously sexy AND quite realistic (other than the sex-slave setting, of course)--the physical acts, the immediate emotions surrounding them, and the overall character growth based on them all ring true. This is a LOT of novel for the money, at about 100,000 words. It read so smoothly that I was very glad of the length--I pretty much wanted to keep reading forever. The little summary to the left of the box I'm typing in says this is "Cascade #1," and I hope that's true. This author can write as many novels in this universe as she wants, and I'll keep buying and treasuring them.

Sexy, smart, thoughtful, hot, mature, well written BDSM - a rarity, so hopefully they'll be more from this author.
