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....
If you haven’t read the first two please don’t read this review!
Hell is fine. Surely God wants nothing to do with us, anyway.
Every book in this series just gets more and more amazing. The plot in this series is fantastic and it builds in a way that leaves you wanting more every time you close one of the books and this one wasn’t any different. This book left me on the edge of my seat and screaming through twitter at Ms. Reisz because I wasn’t expecting such an ending to leaving me with my jaw hitting the floor and begging for mercy.
This book took me to the past and the present and explored how the relationship between Kingsley and Søren developed and became what it is. It was so interesting getting the backstory on the two most prominent characters in Nora’s life. I really enjoyed seeing them as boys and especially Søren before he became a Jesuit priest. The relationship between them was beautifully broken and filled with such passion that when I was reading their stories I didn’t want to be anywhere else.
Kingsley is painfully in love and he hasn’t been right since. Watching Kingsley deal with his demons made me connect with him even more. Seeing how Søren actually can love someone made him more relatable. I really enjoyed the fact that he showed his feelings for Kingsley in ways that we haven’t seen him ways eye opening and so heart breaking.
God and Nora. They became the same person at that moment. He worshipped at the altar of her body and for a moment he felt the power of their union as a communion.
Wesley and Nora are my two favorite people in the world. The odds are against them in every way possible. She’s kink and he’s vanilla but watching her with Wesley shows how normal she can be. The sex scenes in this book were written like none other that I have read. This wasn’t a romance book filled with things that couldn’t happen in real life. This is how sex normally is! Watching two people go from friends to lovers is normally painful but this, this was amazing.
Wesley brings out a side of Nora that she didn’t even realize she had and I think she is finally coming to terms with the fact that kink isn’t all she is. There is more to her than the Dominatrix it just took the right person to bring out the best in her. I loved meeting Wesley parents they were great additions to the characters that we got to meet so far. I did miss seeing her and Wesley more but the snapshots that I did get were perfect.
It means, “I will kill the bitch.”
