Publisher Description

“Don’t think of it as blackmail. Think of it as an alternative to prison. I’d much rather punish you myself.”

Kayla Sutton faces a question no mother wants to face: what would you do to save your daughter? Broke and desperate, she siphons thousands from her employer to pay for her daughter’s treatment, but when Gage Channing discovers her theft, she is shocked to learn that her boss has no intention of turning her over to the police. Instead he issues an ultimatum—give him her sexual submission, or go to jail.

Backed into a corner by a man with no shame, Kayla must find the strength to travel down the path of pain and pleasure. But when her past catches up to her, prompting a free fall into forbidden territory with a man she once loved, Kayla realizes nothing is black and white when everyone around her has secrets.

Loved the characters. The plot line is very dark and twisted. You have to keep turning the page to find out what is going to happen next.

Mind blowing

This book was mind blowing watching her succumb to her darkest pleasures while all the while trying to fight the true nature that Gage brought out of her was spell binding. When she went back to him willing on her own terms signified the hold he had on her. She didn’t want to fall for him but he carved a place in her heart that could only be filled by his sadistic desires had me turning page after page. This is dark to the point where at times i could scream but definitely enjoyed the read.



This book is literally rape after rape and the main male lead is constantly trying to convince the female lead that he doesn’t want to hurt her. It is a complete book of Stockholm syndrome based off rape and holding her sick child’s life over her head. I only read the entire thing to see if it ended differently. But honestly it’s disgusting and twisted. And a HORRIBLE attempt at showing BDSM type intercourse. This is how people afraid of BDSM think it is and it’s just sad.
