The Summary On GOODREADS:
Keep your friends close and your enemies closer...preferably in bed. That's always been Kingsley Edge's strategy with his associate, the notorious New York dominatrix Nora Sutherlin. But with Nora away in Kentucky, now it's Kingsley's chance to take her place at the feet of the only man he's ever wanted -- Søren, Nora's on-again, off-again lover -- until a new threat from an old enemy forces him to confront his past.
Wes Railey is still the object of Nora's tamest yet most maddening fantasies, and the one man she can't forget. He's young. He's wonderful. He's also thoroughbred royalty and she's in "his" world now. But Nora is no simpering Southern belle, and her dream of fitting into Wesley's world is perpetually at odds with her dear Søren's relentlessly seductive pull.
Two worlds of wealth and passion call to her and whichever one Nora chooses, it will be the hardest decision she will ever have to make... unless someone makes it for her....
Even though as usual I have billon mixed feelings, this book still doesn’t deserve less than 5 big, kinky, sadist stars. Without a doubt, this is my favorite book of the series so far. The story again was so twisted, beautiful, wicked and highly emotional, but above all painful. So much sadness…a beautifully written catastrophe-that’s what it is.
Never thought that I would say this, but Kingsley & Soren, The Prince of the Kinky Underground & the meanest and kinkiest Sadist/Dom of them all, stole the show big time from Nora & Wesley, our famous Switch and her vanilla Prince. I think that I finally found my favorite character, and that’s, without a doubt, the beautiful, wicked and deeply broken, the one and only- Kingsley. Even though he is pretty fucked-up like the rest of them, I dare you not to like him after you hear his side of the story. I mean, the guy was breaking my heart with every new memory all over again. I truly don’t care for Soren-Nora-Weasley triangle anymore, as long as this guy gets his HEA.
Btw. nice and very clever move by the author for making us see the big, scary Sadist through Kingsley’s eyes and memories. For a minute there, even I started to see him more as a human and less as a “boogey-man”, but I’m still far from his fan. I was always weak when it came to these fucked-up and ‘tortured’ souls, but this guy is just the epitome of fucked-up. He is just too cold, arrogant, calculated and cruel for my taste, but without a doubt the most intriguing character of them all. There’s no way I could possibly like him, but at least now I get him in a way.
This time actually, the person who was on my “sh*t list” is Nora. In my eyes she’s becoming worse sadist than Soren with her manipulative games. At least from Soren you know what to expect, but this woman changes her mind every 2 seconds. I don’t know about you, but her being the ultimate femme fatale is getting more and more annoying. I would rather see Soren & Kingsley together, than Soren & Nora. At least Kingsley was honest about his feelings from the beginning and knows what and whom he wants. Also, before I started reading this book, I read a couple of the reviews on GR, some of which had these “legends” about Soren’s safe word and that’s one of the biggest reasons I wanted to read this book as soon as possible. I had a couple of theories, but I was sure that it would be smth totally unpredictable and meaningful considering how people were ecstatic about it- BUT guess what?-It turned out to be the first thing which crossed my mind, but I said to myself that there’s no way it would be so predictable and to tell you the truth kind of lame. I mean, come on people! That’s the safe word of the big, bad & scary No 1. Dom/Sadist? Sorry, but I was rather disappointed. I would prefer if it was smth connected to his past, something more unique and wicked, more Soren-like.
The biggest and epic moment of the book was for me the fight Kingsley & Soren had in Kingsley’s bedroom and the way that chapter ended. That was the moment which really left me speechless, especially because their story was building up to that particular moment, and it was so beautifully written that I found myself rereading that part a couple of times. That was the moment when Kingsley irrevocably won me over . I love the way he provoked Soren to the point that the poor priest actually wanted to hurt him and not in the(ir) good way and above all how he didn’t let Soren intimidate him and scare him away like every other person. Of course, I was horrified later by the outcome, but it is how it is. I have finally come to terms that everything these people do in the bedroom is consensual and that they enjoy it no matter how much their idea of foreplay horrifies me. The author really made it clear in this book. The hardcore BDSM I can take, BUT these Soren/ religion/ HBDSM correlations and comparisons are still really disturbing me and always will, but they obviously won’t prevent me to read the next book.
Bring it on Ms Tiffany Reisz!!!
