As Brianna comes to terms with the realization that she is no longer a slave, she must figure out what she wants for her life. Forgetting her past isn’t an option. It is an integral part of who she is now, and it will forever shape her view of life. The one thing she knows is that she cannot imagine her life without the man who saved her, but can she be what he needs?
Stephan never imagined falling in love with the woman he rescued, but the thought of her no longer being part of his life is physically painful. The scars from her past continue to haunt her, and he is helpless to stop them. All he can do is try to help her work through the traumas of her past. Can he be everything she needs and help her move on?
The two must figure out how to navigate not only their relationship with each other, but also the outside world. A friend from Brianna’s past shows up where she least expects them, and Uncle Richard continues to enforce his well-meaning agenda to get Brianna more traditional help. As forces, both friend and foe, threaten to tear them apart, Stephan and Brianna have to navigate the turbulent waters and find what they need in each other.
This series is so completely unique. Even though I read the first book, you do not need it to be able to follow along in this one. Sherri does an amazing job with the details, so you can follow along without having read the first book, but aren't lost in the re-referencing of the first book for those of us that have. It has a really great pull, especially since Sherri switched POV's throughout the book. I love to know what all the characters are thinking.
Brianna was sold into slavery against her will and made into a sex slave. This series is about the darker side of BDSM. There are a lot of sadistic Dom's out there and Brianna was sold to an absolute horror of one. Stephan rescues her by buying her from Ian. He takes her home and begins the process of making her human again. He continuously fights his growing desires for her because he knows what she needs is gentleness and trust. She begins to show much improvement in this book but has a lot of obstacles thrown in her way. Her past before the slavery and after completely haunts her throughout this book. Stephan is literally her sole source of comfort.
Even though this book portrays the darker parts of BDSM, it also highlights the perks. It shows how rewarding a Sub/Dom relationship can be when it takes the proper route. Brianna is scarred from her time with Ian, but is slowly coming to realize her feelings for Stephan. But Stephan is a Dom. Can Brianna heal enough to be everything that Stephan needs? This was an excellent read for those of you who are looking for something different. I am eagerly anticipating the next book. Excellent read!!
