EXPECTATION: I expected bondage and sex and sex trafficking. I was interested by synopsis.
REACTION: This book was definitely like nothing I have ever read before. I’m not going to lie – the first 50 pages or so was a bit odd trying to get into it. Once I got into the storyline and farther into the book I had no problem rolling right through it. Some of the plot lines throughout the novel moved faster than others. I had a hard time with the first half of the book because her first pregnancy was SO FAST! She just wakes up and has the baby. It was incredibly unrealistic. I can’t imagine her never gaining consciousness during her first pregnancy. I don’t know it was something I just couldn’t get over. The storyline with the guard felt a bit drawn out and after that the plot flowed better. (I do think the plot line was significant to the story though). Surprise surprise plot – not. I was not surprised about someone coming back into the story later on. I have to say nothing in the book really surprised me. The sex throughout the book was okay. I thought it was strange that Ein helped her best friend/lover lose her virginity by having a threesome. That’s a new one even for me to read. All of the characters seemed to love spanking each other. It was a bit much, and I understand it’s done a lot in BDSM but come on. Every sex scene is a bit obsessive. I really liked the ending of the novel. I think it brought everything together for the most part. It answered all of my questions I had throughout the novel. This novel shoved a ton of information and plotlines into one book. I like the text on the cover but I wish the cover itself was different. I am giving this novel a 3 out of 5 stars. This book felt like I was using a traffic light for my love of it. I was often at the yellow light waiting for it to pick back up to a green light. I did enjoy it for the most part. I would recommend it for those that enjoy erotica.
