“…this book is on fire!”
~ Under the Covers
Guys it’s been YEARS since I’ve had this series on my TBR. I feel like a whole decade but I could be wrong? LOL So 2020 will be the year I finally take a dive into this steamy erotic PNR BDSM series. I was probably unprepared for book 1 as I thought each book follows a different couple so let me just give you the disclaimer. This book ends without a full resolution for this first couple so they’ll continue in the next one.
That being said… this book doesn’t skim on the true details of a BDSM relationship and in this case with it being the vampire world. Lady Elyssa is an old vampire without a servant. Jacob is a human who was trained in secret by her previous servant to be everything she needed. But there are many things at play in why she won’t take a new servant and the truth about what’s going on with her. Except Jacob can be very persuasive until he gets what he wants.
I really loved the dynamic in the relationship between them. Jacob is very alpha and it was empowering to see him be submissive to everything his mistress asked of him. I know that might not be the case for everyone when it comes to seeing a male submissive, but it was done beautifully in this book. And when it comes to the steam… this book is on fire!
There were some times when the storyline felt like it slowed a bit for my taste and I had to push through reading it which is probably why I’m not giving this book a higher rating. But I’m certainly interested in this world. It’s rich and decadent, I can’t wait for more.
