I love KA’s writing, I really do. There is no doubt that this book was HOT AS F***! There was lot’s of seriously sexy M/M action! There was also a focus on a ménage m/m/f relationship that I suspect will be a topic for another book. My concern is a message that KA may be sending with the plots and her character’s emotional health. The message seems to being sent that anyone that likes kink and the D/S power exchange must have some sort of trauma or abuse in their past to cause this desire, in them. So far, every one of the characters , in this series, has suffered some sort of abuse or severe trauma in their past and this emotional scarring is used to explain their need and desire for an alternate lifestyle. Sure, I can see that the nature of the D/s power exchange could be used to deal with emotional issues but, to assume that anyone who enjoy’s this alternative lifestyle must be emotionally scarred is not only unfair, it’s disrespectful. There is enough stereotyping, in the world, without writing romantic fiction that encourages even more. I understand that a writer wants to make their characters as interesting as possible, but writers need to realize that their readers may forget that it is fiction they are reading and, in turn, apply it to their everyday reality.
Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed the book and the H/h’s journey to their HEA, but the repeated theme ,in this series, has started rubbing me the wrong way.
This book has a lot of hard core sexual interactions and even some “ravage type” m/m role play, so if you have some triggers or if this type of role play offends you, pick a different series by KA.

I usually enjoy Kristin Ashley books but I found this one a bit boring and lacking in chemistry. It was ok, but it won’t stick with me. Side note - lots of man on man action (I don’t mind it, but some might)
