Blurb:Stripping had not just been profitable for Lisa Emery; it had given her the power, the control, to be the woman she wanted to be. She’d had a stimulating job and the perfect man at home—her master. Together, they were exploring the darker side of passion, and both seemed to bloom with the knowledge. Why then had he suddenly disappeared just when things were going so well? And why now was he back?
Ben Johnson knew the “life” he and Lisa were living had been wrong...just knew it. Something that felt that good couldn’t be right. According to his therapist, “only by atoning for your wrongs could you really grow and change as a person.” Why then, after so many months apart, did he still need to dominate Lisa, to bend her to his will and give in to his baser instincts?
Review: Ok, while this one had all the ingredients for an awesome dessert, I just couldn't get them put together right.
Don't get me wrong, the sex was hot hot hot but the motivation behind the two main characters is what threw me. Her friends say she has changed, even before the break-up but I never "got" how she changed. He thought he was the cause and that their "play" was hurting her...I think. I got a bit confused on the why's.
In the end I was happier than I was in the middle, but I still felt like I'd missed something somewhere along the way.
