Master Adrian Cayne knows how to bring exquisite pain or pleasure to a woman's body. Before he'll take on an inexperienced submissive, he expects her to pass a series of seductive tests of increasing intensity to see if she's receptive to his unique and dark skills. Under his command and relentless determination, she'll relinquish control to him. He can't afford to get close to another submissive after the last one burned him and nearly cost him his career. He doesn't count on Emma being the one to make him feel again, love again.
Emma is known to thoroughly research her articles for the tabloid magazine Scandal. Her latest assignment to write about Dark Odyssey, a new BDSM club, is her chance to indulge in her taboo desires for the sex she craves as a submissive. With her job and future career on the line, she has to write a lurid, gossip story. But her heart isn't in it because she's falling for Adrian.
Raw and hot passion draws them past guarded limits, but when secrets are revealed, trust will be the final test for true love. Inside Scoop: Emma's journey includes public sex scenes and watching a scene with a sadist and masochist. A Romantica BDSM erotic romance from Ellora's Cave
This is, to me, a kind of beginner intro into BDSM. It's not too dark or edgy. Since this is a short read, the characters weren't well developed and it seemed slightly rushed. Having said that, this was a hot steamy read. Adrian and Emma fit together in this short. A great read for those newer to the BDSM genre. ++This book was provided to me free of charge in exchange for an honest review. This in now way influenced my review++
