But anger wasn’t the only burning emotion Max ignited inside me. The potent sexual attraction we share threatened to burn me alive, too. Unwilling to cede our Dominance, the battle for control raged like a third world war, both in and out of the dungeon. It would take a coup d'état for love to conquer our drive to command.
But when Max learns the secrets of my past, and attempts to heal my scars, I don’t know if I’ll be able to still the battle…or fall willingly to my knees.
Samantha “Sammie” Radcliffe has the pleasure of meeting Maximus “Max” Gunn. This will read as a standalone but there are so many secondary characters that make appearances that they pique your interest in going back and reading their story. They all seem to care about each other and you’ll find yourself wanting to know more.
Sammie appears to be a very confident woman on the outside but Max pushes a lot of her buttons. While he pushes she pushes back which makes her feel a little insecure in what he makes her feel. It’s a story where she must question her life and what she wants. It’s like she’s telling us her story and in that she discloses something so personal that you can’t help but be affected.
I know Max is a Dom but it seemed at times that he was pushing at Sam a little too much. She seemed so fragile at times and he just kept pushing and pushing. He may have seemed as if he was helping her but at times I felt like yelling at him to back off a little. Emotions seemed to run a little high at times. There were certainly plenty of ups and downs and I was there for the ride. That ride continues right to the very end. And it includes seeing what makes Sam happy.
