I really enjoyed this book, I haven’t read all the books in the series but I was still able to follow along with this book without getting lost. The BDSM aspect was well written as I would expect from Shayla Black. The sex scenes where steamy and sexy keeping me glued to the page.
I loved Stone his love for Lily was undeniable and wanted to protect her and keep her safe. It took me a little getting used to Lily, I loved her bravery but sometimes her indecisiveness through me. But by 40% in I began to love her with Stone and realized they were a perfect match.
As Lily and Stone go into hiding alone together their attraction grows. Stone tries to take things slow with Lilly using her submissive tendencies to bring her out of herself. But as he does this he only falls deeper in love with her leaving him with a decision to make to choose love over freedom.
I hadn’t read one of the books from the Wicked Lovers series in a while I stopped at Ours to Love book seven for no particular reason. Reading this book has gotten my blood pumping to go back and read the installments I missed. Ms. Black draws us in this world and unconventional family that is the Club Dominion members and we love reading about them.
As usual Shayla delivers a story that's a total page turner! The characters are wonderful and the plot keeps you guessing and your heart pumping!! Worth the read!
