The night Dr. Claudia Ellers was kidnapped was the the night that changed her life forever. She was taken to save Sean Reynolds’ life but could Sean save hers in return.
Sean has a dark side that he tries to resist but with Claudia the battle is harder. He knows he must let her go but he can’t.
Claudia does what she needs to do in order to survive but is betrayal and deceit worth the pain of losing him forever.
It took me a while to get into this book but once I did there was no putting it down. Once you get passed the Stockholm syndrome effect and the real relationship starts between Claudia and Sean it is a romance that you will be hoping to succeed.
Claudia Ellers is a strong woman because she does not let anyone behind her defensive walls, she knows that the moment she starts caring for someone then she can be hurt more than she is prepared for. Losing her family leaves her alone in the world with only her work and she has become a severe workaholic. Being forced to spend time with Sean, getting to know the real him, starts to make her walls crumble and it will take a strong force of will to keep them intact, but really, when you are chained to the bed of a sexy, all-alpha male who needs walls anyway?
Sean Reynolds is a small-time criminal whose father has higher hopes for him. What Sean does he does against his will, and with the help of Claudia he sees a way to a better future. Nothing is ever easy though and these two have a long and painful journey ahead of them.
There are minor elements of BDSM mainly in the form of the B&D, with some hot sex to accompany it! Within the story we are introduced to several other characters who will have their chance to tell their own tale of love, pain, sex and dominance.
This is the first in a very extensive series and I will definitely be reading some more in the future.
