This is a novella so I was quite impressed by the story that bloomed between Master Z and Jessica. When Jessica finds herself stuck in her car in the middle of the storm, she seeks shelter in a private club for the night. Unbeknownst to her, she signs in without reading the contract which outlines what kind of private club it is. Soon, she realizes that she may be in over her head when she goes bug-eyed at witnessing scenes between Doms and their subs. Even more surprising is the fact that she finds something darkly sensual about it.
That feeling ignites when she meets Master Z, the owner of the club. Zachery is a great Dom. He’s potent man, just barely contained and you can tell he possesses a lot of power. I really enjoyed him. But perhaps what made him more desirable is the fact that he embraces the fact that Jessica is a more conservative person who isn’t used to this lifestyle. His patience with her makes me weak in the knees. And it’s their blooming trust between one another that makes me love this book the most. It’s a little baffling to see this development with such a short book, so I must give Sinclair a hand for this. Great pacing and character development!
I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series. If this book is any indication of what to expect, then I’m in good hands.
What did you think of our review?
Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
