Tessa and Zac are the perfect couple. Only one thing stands in their way. Tessa has a problem and she is afraid to talk to Zac about it. Zac has already figured it out and waits for Tessa to confide in him but instead he finds that she confides in another. Zac confronts Tessa about it and instead of talking they both retreat behind lies and ruin their relationship. Tessa is too afraid to tell anyone what she wants. After talking to his good friend David, Zac decides that he must tell Tessa about his past and hope that she will accept him. Zac blames himself for their problem never guessing Tessa’s real reason. In a desperate move Zac takes Tessa to David’s house during a weekend BDSM party and shows her what his lifestyle is really like. Will Tessa give in to her needs? Can she love Zac the way he is?
It was nice to read about a Dom with some insecurities of his own but when he finally takes charge he does it with grace. While the reader cheers her on Tessa finally throws caution to the wind and tells Zac what she wants. As Zac gives Tessa what she needs and wants, he does it with love. The bond that they have only grows stronger with their admissions. Showing us that communication is the key to a healthy and happy relationship.
This book is a great read. I was hooked from the first page. Jennifer Leeland only gets better with each book. Fast paced and well written this story should be on every BDSM lovers reading list.
