Here’s what readers are saying
Kit via amazon - This book was recommended to me and I was hesitant about it because I had to read it on my computer. I’m glad I did though. The characters were so realistic, their emotions and the banter between them was amazing and sexy.I found myself a little breathless during the sex scenes. Not for the faint of heart but tastefully done. They had me going and I had to fan myself more than once. The spanking scene was the most realistic I’ve ever read. I’ll be reading it again. I LOVED the collar scene and the way Rene spoke to his wife was heart warming. I laughed, I sighed and I got a little choked up. I’ll definitley be looking for more books from this author.
Christine Bell via Good Reads – Full disclosure: I’m an author, I do know this author, and I did get a sneak peak at this book. That said, I read a lot of books by authors I know and I review VERY few because I would never recommend a book I can’t stand behind. I HAD to review this book because it’s by far the best BDSM book I’ve read since Ann Rice back in the 80’s. I loved these characters and for the first time actually found myself truly understanding the emotional aspects of a dynamic like this. The sex was smoking hot, the relationship poignant and loving, the banter funny and sharp. If you like BDSM, I’d be stunned if you didn’t like Riley Murphy.
Sunshine Reader via Amazon -This was one of the best BDSM books I’ve read! Heat level rocked off the charts! Characters who make sense and a hero you can fall in love with. Hard to do with an alpha male. I’m glad I took a chance on this first time author. I’m looking forward to her next book.
