An ambitious but strange attempt to get kinky with a romance novel. I was a little dismayed by hero's falling instantly in love with the first woman he's ever had good sex with and proposing to her within a week.

I liked that the heroine was mixed race (Scottish & Japanese) and the hero was a Ranger (I love military guys). The author gives you a peek into the dom/sub world not as a lifestyle but as a way of being. Whiteside's writing is complicated; you can't skim it and expect to understand what's going on. The prose is lush but spare at the same time. Overall, a good read, but not a keeper.

Very, VERY, hot book! The fact that this author dared to showcase the man in the sub position is erotic. The fact that he comes from years of military service and gives into his fantasy of being 'thorouhly dominated by a woman' is down right delicious!

This book just did not do it for me. I found it very unbelievable that a big tough decorated Army Ranger would be shy and blushing with zero confidence upon meeting a woman in a the erotica section, no less. Because of that I just could never get into these two characters.

The hottest erotica ever! Hot, Hot, Hottest. Great writing of fantasy sex between the couple who meet in a bookstore. Certainly a fantasy that most of us at PBS can relate to. The scenes of interaction between the couple when they actually get together are the best sex on paper and ink I have yet to read. Although I was not as delighted with Whiteside's vampire series, this book put her at the top of my contemporary erotica authors list.

Oh, wow! This book is not only hot, but has a great story line, and the writing is outstanding. I didn't expect a love story in the middle of it all, but there it was. If you're not faint-hearted about graphic sex and bdsm, I highly recommend this book.

I enjoyed the read. I am glad he did not give up as easily as she did.

A bit out there for me, but you will most likely enjoy it if you like erotica.
