Notorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different--more serious, more personal--and she's sure it'll be her breakout book...if it ever sees the light of day. Zachary Easton holds Nora's fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: he wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards--in six weeks--or it's no deal. Nora's grueling writing sessions with Zach are draining...and shockingly arousing. And a dangerous former lover has her wondering which is more torturous--staying away from him...or returning to his bed? Nora thought she knew everything about being pushed to your limits. But in a world where passion is pain, nothing is ever that simple.… (mais)

I want to give this 5 stars, but I can’t??? I suppose because it didn’t end in a way that felt remotely satisfying.

I know this is basically an anti-romance. I got it. I don’t know if I’m fully comfortable in that. I can say that this was different than probably anything i’ve ever read?! i gotta mull this one over...

I cant help but mourn the happy ending i knew i wouldn’t get ( )

What did I think of this book? I finished it late last night, and I'm still unsure of how to review it. First, I will say that I would have given it 3.5 stars if I could have. It was better than other books I've rated three stars, but not as good as the fours.

I'd like to give a synopsis of the book, but I don't think I can. Just go read the synopsis given by the publisher. I say that because I'm not sure I got the plot. On the surface, author Nora Sutherlin is working with a new editor, Zach Easton, to move her BDSM erotica to a new, higher-profile publisher. But in the background is Nora trying to seduce Zach, sometimes trying to seduce her "intern" Wesley, and her relationship with her Dom, Soren.

I didn't really like Nora. It seemed like her main motivation was to shock, even though she kept professing to want to leave "that life" behind. She was very unprofessional with Zach, and her behavior with him bordered on sexual harassment. I didn't think her relationship with Wes was so bad, mainly because he kept the boundaries in place.

I didn't have any strong feeling for Zach one way or another. He was there, he was "gorgeous," (as was mentioned A LOT) and he served his purpose.

Now, Soren. I couldn't stand Soren, and I don't know if that's because I don't "get" the whole Dom/sub thing, so don't appreciate his Dom-ness, or if he really was just an asshole. I'll have to consult with friends about this.

Read this book if you like to read about BDSM. Otherwise, you may want to stay away. ( )

I can't possibly remember how many times I have read this book, but it is at least 4 ( )

This is a difficult book to review without spoilers. First, the writing and plotline is superb, yet, while I far from dislike this book the BDSM elements were unexpected from the simple blurb but it pleased me the erotic content is far from lascivious and often not even graphic. The story tears the reader apart in so many places, pulling in so many directions, it should win hands down. But it’s toward the last quarter of the book the story lost me. I couldn’t see what there was to love about Soren, though I see this is now part of an 8 book series and hear we learn more about him as the story progresses. And when I thought one or more character should be content with a chosen path, they surprised me. I’m unsure whether I was satisfied with any of the decisions and I ultimately found the character of Nora frustrating, even fickle, though some might view her way of loving more forgiving. Perhaps too forgiving. I felt this is really Nora’s story and I would have preferred she were the first introduced to make this more obvious. I’ve read the blurbs for the series and, though I doubt I’ll commit to reading more, this works as a standalone novel and was worth the time spent with it. I couldn’t fault the world this author weaves or her writing. ( )

An erotic romance which is, in my opinion, neither erotic nor romantic. There is some VERY problematic stuff here. S&M with real and significant physical damage, infidelity, statutory rape, unsafe sex, and a host of other issues. This is not 50 Shades of Grey, this is real BDSM.

Reisz writes very well and there is tons of witty sexually charged banter, and moving self-examination here. There is also a fundamental battle between good and evil (neither side wins), real love of the purest kind, real love of the impurest kind, and an intense, taut sexual vibe that does not stem from any exposition regarding any sex act. (None are described in any significant detail at all though there are many of them. Not for the prudish, this is filled with all manner of acts manual, oral, anal, and torture-related.) This is also something of a psychological thriller, and a (very) dark take on religion. When is the last time you read erotica with lines like:

I'm no optimist, I'm just a realist who smiles too much.

Soren has this impressively twisted theology of the Trinity, you know. God the Father inflicted the suffering and humiliation, God the Son submitted to it willingly and God the Holy Spirit gave Christ the grace to endure it.

This was 100% not the book I expected. It wasn't sweet, or easy, or soothing, or arousing, but damn was it good. ( )
