could be read a stand alone I don t recommend that you be read a stand alone I don t recommend that you it that way because I think this series deserves be read in its entirety I particularly enjoyed this edition although there aspects that I found difficult to relate toOn the surface Connor is a bit of dream boat He s hot Irish solvent and a top drawer Dom He allows her to tattoo him works through her business problems with her and seem to adore her in all her bossy ways Dig a ittle deeper and you Making Sense of Leadership: Exploring the Five Key Roles Used by Effective Leaders ll realise Connor is a bit of dumbass I have no problem with this the majority of hero s we read about in Romanceand are dumbasses but he does some really shitty things in a misguided attempt to protect his heart Connor s father was a man who talked with his fists Because of this Connor thinks he is irreparably damaged He married a woman who he didn t Penny Aggie Volume 2 love inorder to try to have a sense of normal Shockingly it fell apart because he seemed to have missed the point of marriage Because of these events he has decided toet no woman near his heart for fear of hurting her because he can t possibly Gandhi Churchill: The Epic Rivalry that Destroyed an Empire and Forged Our Age love her back properly He s fine with his sense of reality Well that is until Mischa comes alongSo what are these shitty things I hear you ask Well I m not telling you but they do border on irresponsible Dom territory It almost made meose a Les Innocents little respect for him OK I did for a while but I doove to see a dumbass of a man fall I forgave him by the end because his positives far out weighed the negative his attitude towards her personality won me overMischa is what made this story different I have seen feisty subs before but none uite I Was A Stranger like Mischa She is a bit of a pain slut which fits well with Connor and she isiterally willing to try anything There is a safe word it is all consensual but she doesn t really put down any hard imits at first She actively badgers Connor to take her to the BDSM club because she wants to play in public freely admitting to a man she recently met what her kinks are It s refreshing because I would expect to see these types of conversation happen in club play scenes but I was astounded to see it just in everyday conversation She was an easy heroine to ike for me but I have always The Lives of Stay-at-Home Fathers: Masculinity, Carework and Fatherhood in the United States liked brashy heroines She doesn t even try to deny her feelings for Connor yes they scare her and she tries to run from them but they are still there I admired her ability to accept everything about herself no matter how controversial The sex scenes in this book were indescribable Sex scenes with sadists and masochists have to be written really well to make me hot because I m at the other end of the spectrum These scenes were written very very well and had me fanning myself at regular intervals Connor CERTAINLY knows how to give a girl what she needs Another thing Ioved about this book was Eve s exploration into Bottoming out I hadn t ever read much about it before but it was very intriguing to read about Mischa hit subspace really uickly with Connor every time and because of this she bottomed out This mean t that she became incredibly emotional and pretty much inconsolable every time they had sex I ve never read any book with these themes before It certainly brought a new angle to the aftercare sideOverall this is an excellent addition to the series If you ove hard playing Dom s falling hard read this book If you ove feisty heroines with the balls to ask for what they need read this book If you Gone: The Disappearance of Claudia Lawrence and Her Father's Desperate Search for the Truth love your BDSM hard gritty and emotional then read this book If youike all of the above there is a high probability you will 1,000 Awesome Writing Prompts love this book I know.
