Blurb: Sophie finally finds the courage to reenter the Atlanta BDSM scene after extricating herself from an abusive relationship. At a local munch, she meets Dave, a funny, laid-back erotic photographer. When she sees him again later at a dungeon, Sophie is surprised by her strong attraction, and nervous about starting a new relationship, but Dave eases her fears. They embark on a sexy, thrilling D/s relationship and Sophie finds healing and fulfillment in Dave’s arms.

But Sophie is still haunted by nightmares of her past. On a dark night in the woods with Dave and his friend Ryan, frightening memories overtake her. She knows that in order to move on, she must uncover the tragedy that haunts her subconscious.

Sophie’s quest for answers brings her face-to-face with her previous tormentor. She finds herself once more in the deep woods, not only fighting for answers…but also for her life.

Reader Advisory: Contains m/f/m ménage scenes and brief but graphic violence.

Review: Hot sex? Yes please. A bit disturbing at times? Maybe. I had a hard time believing that after such a traumatic abusive BDSM relationship that she would be willing to get involved with a Dom that she doesn’t know very well. And I have to say that I was a little put off by the fact that he knew about some of her trauma and still did some pretty aggressive things to her. He’s a sadist. She was abused. I don’t know, for me it just didn’t work and it stretched my mind to try and believe it.

Had there not been quite so much detail at times as to how severe her abuse had been I might have been able to buy her being with a sadist Dom again. The story itself, the love, between the two main characters I liked, as far as a love story goes. Aside from the sex I just didn’t really feel like I was reading an erotic book. It felt more like a good love story with kink thrown in for the flavor.
