I got this as an ARC for my honest opinion and review. I have read other work by Linnea May and this was just as good as her other work. I got the impression that both Lilana and Joseph are a bit broken. Joseph has some issue with violence in his youth and he believes he has it under control. I have read a few books with BDSM lifestyle in them. This one is a little dark and twisted. Throw in a kidnapping and that just ups the ante.
