This book was pretty meh for me. As much as I wanted to like it, I just couldn't.
I thought that our male lead was just annoying with his "I'm too dirty for her...I'm going to corrupt her" bullshit. Come on, you are both adults, which means YOU CAN EACH MAKE YOUR OWN CHOICES! But you know, if you like torturing yourself and causing heartache for absolutely no reason, then that's cool.
Some of the scenes in here were beyond hot. Almost too much for me at parts...just because it wasn't my kink. I've read Sawyer Bennett's novels before (one of the reasons I decided to give this one a shot is because I liked the other ones) and this is not one of her best. I love her Cold Fury series, which tones down the sex a lot compared to these books and focuses more on emotional attachment. Not just sex like this book.
I liked that Callie decided she wanted to do what she wanted, and everyone else be damned. She was pretty great at handling everyone in the book (including her ass of an ex).
I think that I would much rather get a book from the perspective of Bridger (Woolf's friend). He seemed like a fun time. However, the excerpt at the end had me really excited for the next book...guess you'll just have to read it to find out.
I recommend this one for those of you who really enjoy a bad boy tortured by his conscience. If not, you should stay away. Also, those of you without an open mind to others' kinks stay away...you definitely won't enjoy it.
