ReviewI really enjoyed this book. The characters were unique and fun and had a sexy, but serious relationship that sprung up fairly quickly. Decklan was pretty hot as a Dom, but I wish we could've seen more of that side of him. I felt like we spent so much time with Amanda and her relationship with Brad that we missed out a lot on just how sexy Decklan was.
Amanda has a secret that ends up ruining the beautiful budding relationship she was building with Decklan. While I actually thought the way the secret was brought to light was unique and interesting, I think the whole situation afterwards was awkward. Decklan is all over the place and so is Amanda. I think the whole thing got blown up oddly and the characters handled it oddly. I suppose in the end it didn't matter because they found their way through it and I liked the ending.
I wish we could've seen the more D/s side of things since Decklan had all this experience in such things and Amanda had such a great reaction to the one scene they had together.
