Another white, tormented, very wealthy male with a penchant for domination and pain with his sex. At least Elise (aka Ellie) was a bit different from the usual female linked to that type of male character in the overwhelming, all-too-common type of book. She wasn't a virgin, not pristine sexually and, thus, not so new to some aspects of Q's world. The book is not full of sex like many would expect and seems to be intentionally marketed as such. There's no sex until more than 5hrs in with the exception of female masturbation, fellatio between Q & someone else & talk of f-ing. There was plenty of talk, thinking about sex.
The continuous talk of Lucky's/Ellie's/Elise's secret was warranted, though the build-up, the foreshadowing may have been overdone. But, unlikely some stories' "secret," this one was worthy of concern/worry. But the foreshadowing got old after a while. So there was a bit of back and forth between the past and present but not too much. Still, some readers don't like that type of story where the truth is revealed through replaying the past while in the present. It seemed strange that Lucky didn't require Q's health record, since he required hers. It would be natural to ask for it in light of their agreed-upon relationship. It just didn't fit. I also didn't like that the story depended on a big coincidence that wasn't impossible—especially in a large city—but very unlikely. And it was never made clear how Elise found out (I can't say about what), and things wrapped a bit too easily. Also it got too sappy at the end. It was so antithetical to Q's character.
Overall, I was less interested in the relationship between Q/Quinn Blackwood and Lucky/Ellie/Elise and more interested in their personal lives and battles unrelated to and preceding their getting together. The narrators were ok, generally. But the male narrator did especially poor versions of female characters.
I liked the book but sometimes the sex scenes were too descriptive. I felt the Quinn mother's story left unanswered questions.
although its little different from most book ive read this book grew on me and i love everything about it books like this are hard to find
Love the storyline suspense is good a must read. The narrator must do male for male and female for female. That would make it much better read
