This is the story of Claire Ryan and Evan Lang. 35-year-old Claire joins a local book club for romance readers in order to get over the breakdown of her 14-year relationship, there she meets book shop owner Evan, a dominant man who has never recovered from the sudden death of his submissive wife.
As their relationship develops and they embark on the path of Claire’s submission, it becomes harder and harder for Evan to keep his emotional distance. Claire is open and responsive and he wants her badly, but refuses to let himself go.
As Claire falls deeper in love with Evan, she realises that he is holding back and decides to end their relationship, forcing Evan to confront his own past and his feelings in order to save his new love.

A very emotional, refreshing, enlightening and engrossing read that shows another side to BDSM that most authors do not add to their stories. An eye opener to me that I feel those that are true fans of the BDSM scene will greatly appreciate.
Claire finally finds herself again after many years of an unhappy and abusive relationship with a man she’s never even loved. She learns a lot about herself from the experience and it has awakened her soul. One of the things being, that she is not alone in the world with her preferences, desires and turn ons. Now she explores a new road and it leads her to a new, refreshing, satisfying and happy life that she’s longed for.
Evan has lost his soul mate, his submissive, his best friend and lover some years back when his wife passed away and has yet to move on in the personal or intimate level of his life. He has his business, but has yet to have any desire to be with another woman sexually ever since his wife. That’s until the beautiful Claire steps into his bookstore and brings turmoil into all of his being. He does not want to want her, but his body and soul are not listening to what his mind is telling them…
I’ve read this story three times now and came out a satisfied reader each and every time. Looking for a great BDSM read that’s original, sexy and has a great HEA? You have it right here people :)
