What do you do when the date you thought was gay suddenly turns out to be a little bit more than you bargained for?
When Serenity goes on a blind date, she is shocked to find out that Ross isn't gay, but something completely unknown in her vanilla world. A sexual Dominant, he exudes confidence that grates on her nerves and makes her squirm in her seat. What's a girl to do?
The interesting thing about this book was Serenity's complete irritation with Ross and the hot and cold hate/love thing that was going on. She was repulsed by the submissive status of women in the BDSM world that Ross introduces her to, not understanding until the very end what being submissive really means. I found myself a little frustrated with her character on a number of occasions, but I was also empathetic as well. If you are a complete vanilla, being introduced to BDSM can be a shock to many people. Lots of people just see the whips and chains and not the hidden language behind the scenes.
Ross enters into the eternal question. How do you attain the status of being a Dom without being an overbearing jerk? He walked a fine line for awhile, but his humanity won through and I liked the reasoning behind his feelings in the end.
As Serenity's fantasies include Ross more and more and she understands what the BDSM lifestyle can hold for her, the story opens up into a realm of possibilities that made for a good page turning tale. I am looking forward to reading more in this series to see what it has to offer.
