Abby King has a secret fantasy.

New York knows Nathaniel West as the brilliant and handsome CEO of West Industries, but Abby knows he’s more: a sexy and skilled dominant who is looking for a new submissive. Yearning to experience a world of pleasure beyond her simple life as a librarian, Abby offers herself to Nathaniel to fulfill her most hidden desires.
After only one weekend with the Master, Abby knows she needs more, and fully submits to Nathaniel’s terms. But despite the pleasure he takes in Abby’s willing spirit, the Nathaniel hidden behind the rules remains cold and distant.
As Abby falls deeper into his tantalizing world of power and passion, she fears that Nathaniel’s heart may be beyond her reach—and that her own might be beyond saving.…

Let me say that first of all that for 90% of the book Nathaniel made me just want to smack him around.  I found absolutely no redeeming qualities for him.  To consider him a Dom is just wrong, he is a prick using his will against Abby, I saw nothing of what a true Dom would do for his submissive.

Abby and the supporting characters are what made the book for me. In the beginning of the book Abby has the whole “I have been crushing on this guy forever thing” going on and getting stepped on by Nathaniel.  Thank goodness she makes a stand. At least Abby finally gets smart and tells him to get lost that she deserves more.  I kept rooting Abby and hoped she would get what she wants.

Technically this book is well written and interesting (even with Nathaniel acting like a prick).  I am not sure all this fan fiction crying out is about on Goodreads, but I did enjoy the book and will read the second book.  Is this my favorite book? No, but it entertained me.

  1. I liked it more than you did but not by much. I probably would have given it a 3.5 or maybe even a 4.
