Overview

Sure to please fans of erotic romance, Lea Griffith’s All or Nothing series returns to the deepest places of longing and obsession.
 
Three years ago, Ruthie Copeland ran away from an erotic connection that shook her to the core. Now she realizes that Tobias Edwards is the only man who can give her what she craves. Determined to reignite the dangerous flame between them, Ruthie seeks him out at The Underground—and discovers a changed man. Though Ruthie, blind since childhood, cannot see the scars on Toby’s face that forced him to seal off his heart, her gentle submission eases the pain of her body’s only Master.
 
Toby stopped feeling after Ruthie left, stopped expecting to find release in meaningless dominance play. Now that Ruthie has taken their dance to the limits of ecstasy, Toby’s lost in a haze of sensation. Yet the enemies that left him disfigured may reappear at any moment. Ruthie’s love gives him the strength to face those who seek to break him, but Toby fears he must leave her to save her life.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here it is. Ruthie Copeland had her heart ripped out three years ago, now she is back home to claim what is hers and more. Tobias Edwards has spent the last three years barely surviving because the guilt he feels for sending Ruthie away is eating him alive. While Tobias is fighting his feelings for her, Ruthie is gonna make him see that he is her more and she is his more. This story has it all, love, loss, pain, a little BDSM and suspense. I love this series and can't wait for MORE! **Wicked Reads Review Team**

In this erotic BDSM romance, Tobias and Ruthie have come together again after a three year separation during which Ruthie decided that she wasn't going to let Tobias deny her and her love for him any longer. Tobias fears that his dark desires will hurt Ruthie but can't resist when she offers herself freely to him. Can they finally find the perfect balance in their relationship? I really enjoyed this story. Ruthie is blind and this affects everything that she does and feels - her senses already on alert to compensate. She wants nothing more than to show Tobias that she is capable and competent in all things, including in the bedroom. Her strength is a key part of the story and I really liked how she was able to finally express to Tobias that she wants all of him, his kink, his body and his heart. Tobias too is an interesting character, dominant in nature and wanting Ruthie so desperately that he is willing to push her away for her own safety, fearing his nature will hurt her body and not recognizing until later that he is hurting her soul by denying her. There is a secondary subplot involving the mafia and I enjoyed that as much as the relationship between Tobias and Ruthie. It definitely added suspense and tension to the story, making it hard to put down. Though the BDSM play scenes were a little more intense than I like personally, the aftercare Tobias shows Ruthie demonstrates just how deep his feelings are for her. 4 stars for this entertaining erotic story.

The first I have read in this series or by this author, I closed this book and went to grab the first. Wow – what a punch Griffith packs in this  story, with two characters that would out-stubborn a mule if they are pushed. I didn’t feel any great loss of story, even with this as a second book, Griffith takes the time to develop this story with background and information, and the character voices are solid and strong, able to look back on their lives and experiences as they learn to move forward. Ruthie has been living in Las Vegas, pursuing her art and making a name for herself. Determined, independent and strong willed, blindness does not define her, it simply is another trait.  I loved that about her: her refusal to curl up and whinge about what she couldn’t do, and moving forward to just do it differently.  Her retreat to Vegas was to distance herself from the temptation that Toby presented: she wanted  him, and he was afraid he would hurt her. Being around him and not being with him was too much. Tobias never wanted to hurt Ruthie, in fact she gives him something that he’s never felt. But he did what he thought best for her, and pushed  her away. The book starts with their separation, and gives Toby’s reasoning.  Heartbreaking that he didn’t trust in her enough to share his needs and wants with her: it’s not like she was unaware of his dominant side. When Ruthie reappears in Atlanta to visit her brother Jeremiah, and make some overtures to Toby, he is completely stunned. Harder,  colder and more closed off from love and softer feelings, their separation but now with his past reappearing he also worries about danger from others. Trying again to push her away, Ruthie digs in her heels and won’t go. And we are off on a ride that is as exciting emotionally as sensually. These two are really a wonderful combination: Ruthie trusts in Toby completely. A necessary element to their relationship trajectory. She  sees him as a complete and complex being, and he gives her life a richness that is missing when he is not there.  While not over-laden  with sexual moments, they are steamy and sensual, as much for the action as the emotion: the tenderness and care that Toby takes with  Ruthie and her utter willingness to expand her boundaries to be what he craves, even when he isn’t quite believing he can control himself. They are electric, emotional moments that display the heart of their relationship even when they aren’t necessarily talking about  their feelings.  Kudos to Griffith for presenting the insecurities and trust in ways that put life into the relationship and give readers plenty  to swoon over. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review:  all conclusions are my own responsibility.

I absolutely adored this story! Of the two books, this one was my favorite because of the connection between the hero and heroine. They were both incredibly stubborn individuals, but that stubbornness served them well to overcome their fears and fight for the type of relationship they both wanted. One needed more convincing than the other, but the fact that the heroine in this story did the chasing was what I really enjoyed about her. The BDSM in this series is tamer than Cherise Sinclair’s books, for example. These couples don’t spend all their time and explore their sexual relationship exclusively within club walls. The prologue alone had my eyes welling up with tears for Ruthie and Toby. They'd been lovers for a while. She knew he was a Dom, but they’d had a vanilla relationship. He kept his darkness in check, for her sake. She wanted all or nothing, to be what he needed, so she learned all she could to give herself to him. Only he gave her a taste hoping to scare her off, instead he got scared off and left for her own good, or so he thought. That was three years ago. The story picks up again in the present, and Ruthie is back to get her man. Ruthie may have been blind, but she was still an independent woman with a flourishing career as a painter. She was a very compassionate soul who loved with everything she had. She was open and honest about her feelings which was refreshing. And obviously, she was willing to go to great lengths to convince Tobias they were better together than apart. I loved Tobias and all of his faults. Considering the type of people he and Jeremiah had to deal with, the thought that the ugliness of his world could touch her really scared him. Contrary to some reviews, I didn't see him as selfish, but stubborn? Absolutely. Someone mentioned that he bossed her around outside of the bedroom. The only time he did that was in regard to Sol. He didn’t know if Sol had an ulterior motive. Ruthie believed he was harmless, but by that point Tobias had good reason to worry about anyone trying to get to him through her. It didn’t fit his character to try and control her life; he only wanted to control their mutual pleasure. And as for the feeling that she caved to his mood swings too often…at the age of nine, she proclaimed to her brother that she’d marry Tobias one day and that Jeremiah should “get him for her”. She knew what she wanted, and if that meant taking a few hits to her heart, that was what she was prepared to do.  The sex/love scenes were all varying degrees of hot (from sex in the rain to desperation sex). But my favorite parts weren't the acts themselves but rather what he gave her. She was the color in his lacklustre life, and in return, he gave her color where there was only murky darkness. Romantic sap that I am, I swooned at that. "Tell me what it looks like, Ruthie," he demanded, stroking her through the aftershocks. "So many colors, Tobias. That's what you give me...color," she whispered brokenly. Despite the five scenes and a few other steamy ones, the author still managed to pack in a lot of story. The next book was set up with a few encounters between Dante, the new head of the Dixie Mafia, and Savannah a detective with the Atlanta PD. Their story ought to be interesting. I also hope to see Sol get a HEA with his mystery woman considering she haunted both him and Ruthie. *Complimentary ARC provided by the publisher via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review.

No really that exciting. The characters weren't very intriguing. I found myself skimming pages at a time and not missing anything important.

Ruthie may be blind but she can see into the heart and mind of Tobias and know exactly what he needs. One night Ruthie offers her submission to Tobias and the next day he declares he never wants to see her again. Three years later and Ruthie is back and ready to show Tobias how strong she really is. An emotionally heartfelt story that had me hooked from the beginning. Both characters are highly emotional and Tobias has some very thick walls built around him. The chemistry between Tobias and Ruthie is wonderful and who so sexy. Overall it was an entertaining and great read.
