Overall, I imagine that this book must accurately reflect the D/s relationship, but not a love HEA ending. Granted this is book 1 of many, so perhaps we will get that in later books.What I did find is that the D/s parts were really hot, but I became a little uncomfortable with all of the regulations. However, I did not give it a 3 star because of that. I felt that there seemed to be a lot of sex and little plot. I started skimming over sex scenes, especially the role playing ones.I know that this was a relationship based book rather than a murder mystery, but I got a little bored. It finished rather abruptly, but I assume it will pick up with the next book.Overall enjoyable but I ended meh.
