Another good read by Ms. Feehan. It was terribly disturbing to see how sick, twisted, cruel and obsessed a persons family can be. But to be raised in that type of environment and come out sane is truly a miracle. Thankfully Jake, one of the main characters had one family member who over time proved he was unlike the others and pointed Jake in the right direction. The saying is true you can't pick your family but you can pick your friends; the truth of this is shown clearly in this story. The love that unfolds and develops here is not what you will be expecting this is more of a take over.

This book was very different from the first two and I found it disturbing. The sex was just as raw which I have no problem with but the domineering, manipulative, controlling attitude of Jake towards Emma and the subservient, submissive, surrendering attitude of Emma's was a classic abuser/abused relationship. It was hard to listen to. The first 1/2 hour of the book describes the abuse Jake suffered during his childhood which was well written and therefore also hard to listen to.
This story took place on a Texas ranch, not the lush, sensual, moody rain forest of the first two books. The leopard theme was not as integral a part of the story either.
The narrator did a pretty good job but I would say that the way he performed this made it feel rawer.
It's not a book I will listen to again as I might the others, but I don't know that I can say that I don't recommend it either. I was glad when it was over but I didn't consider not finishing it.
