Holy heck was this *throat clearing* hot and yet disturbing. Not disturbing in the way you think but more ouch how would that be pleasing. Eleanor is a trained submissive and as such does what her Master tells her even if she doesn't initially want to. She is being given as a loan by her Master to a Dom who needs help to come out of his self-imposed isolation. She craves affection and love but is with a Master who is extremely secretive due to his posistion in society. You don't learn much from this on who he is exactly but you do learn what his posistion is. Daniel... now this was an interesting man. He is a Dom but has an incredible well of affection and a need for love that was sad to see. Yes he does things to her that made me squirm but you see that she wants it even if to me it was umm shall we say cringe worthy.. LOL. I loved seeing the way she does end up healing him but the ending made me sad in some respects. I'm not going to give the end or anything away since I think people should give this author a try. I have Siren and Angel on my TBR so I can see more of Tiffany Reisz's voice and imagination. I do expect there will be more times that I will cringe but what floats my boat is not the same as what some others may enjoy. Go give this a chance but please understand it is BDSM so there are sections that may not make you happy or that you will not agree with but this is showing two consenting adults so... to each their own.
