Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.
I definitely had fun getting to know the characters that Nikki Sex brings to life in the pages of this novel. Both main characters are fully developed individuals who are easy to relate to, or at least understand. I love the history between the characters and surrounding their interactions with one another (and with the supporting cast). I also quite enjoyed the supporting cast. They were developed in a manner that allowed the reader to get to know them without overpowering the main characters. Also, although not strictly part of a series, the recurrence of staple characters throughout her work definitely adds to the aura & mystique of her work. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing some of the characters from Nikki Sex`s past novels reappear, even if just in a cameo spot. I definitely squealed out lout at one character`s reappearance.
With this one, the author combines the realities of everyday life with family issues as well as some hot and steamy romance and BDSM. It`s the best of both worlds that would make a brilliant introduction to Nikki Sex`s work or just a plain fantastic read for those who`ve read her before.
