Rating: 1/5 Stars

Cover: It wasn’t the reason this book got chosen by me, although I love the red ribbon

Review: I found this book to be a little confusing and conflicting. Why present Lexie as a dom if you aren’t following through with it? Why say people are either this or that and then promptly say they can be made to switch?

Lexie’s ‘dom’ told her about safe, sane, consensual. And then it was promptly forgotten and everything became rather rapey. Having a scene with someone who had a fever the same day? A scene under alcoholic influence?

Apart from that I felt no connection between Lexie and Garret. Lexie was a rather interesting character to me at first and I would have loved if she stood her ground. The way she developed I didn’t understand one bit. And everything was happening in 20 days, folks.

Garret… gave me the creeps. Seriously. And he is really stereotype-y as well. If I would have been Lexie, I would have run screaming. Maybe see if I can find a sub for my own. That would have been something I would have loved to read.

The other characters were rather disposable. All the doms were men, a lot ot the time older men, the subs were female and every one of them slender or petite.

Buy/sample

I got provided with an ARC of this book by NetGalley in exchange for a honest review. Thank you.
