Xander is a writer and an experienced Dom that happens to connect with Charlie through a social media site. She sends him a message expecting nothing to come from it but he was interested in her, for some reason and so the story begins.
Charlie is a woman that doesn’t know anything about the BDSM community when she first connects with Xander over the internet. Slowly but surely he’s introducing her into what it means leaving the lifestyle.
This book is told in 1st person and from dual perspectives. It was an interesting way to see inside each main characters head while this relationship between them was being built.
I’ve read quite a few BDSM romance novels, some better than others, but this one was different. It wasn’t only the slow burn but also the fact that this story was not focused on the sex aspect of the relationship. The steps that a new submissive has to take and how the trust is gained, along with other important things are discussed in this story.
I have my opinions when it comes to Xander’s POV in this story. They didn’t reach me as much as I thought they would. In fact, they struck me as odd sometimes, but that’s just for me.
I would recommend this book to those that like to read about the BDSM life and to see a partnership/relationship form from ground zero, without too much sex in the middle.
Disclaimer: I’ve voluntarily reviewed an advance readers copy of this book.
