One sadist. One submissive.
One extraordinary love.
WELCOME TO DARK HAVEN AND MAY ALL YOUR DARKEST WISHES COME TRUE
Fleeing false murder charges, Lindsey lands in San Francisco. There she builds a satisfying life until, in the notorious Dark Haven BDSM club, she encounters deVries. Moth, meet flame.
A security specialist and occasional mercenary, deVries needs an adorable submissive like a knife to the gut. Hell, she’s not even a masochist. But here she is, all big brown eyes and sweet body and sassy mouth. Loyal. Tough-minded. Honest.
Or maybe not, considering her ID is forged. If she thinks to lie to him, she’ll learn better. He’s the Enforcer of Dark Haven—his discipline is absolute, his punishments harsh, and his heart untouched…until now.
I’m personally not a fan of books about sadists. It’s not that I don’t like how they are written or anything, it’s just I don’t really enjoy reading about a person getting beaten. Strange I know. But I can say that I did enjoy this book quite a bit more than I had thought that I would. I did enjoy that even though deVries is a sadist, he wasn’t written as a very scary character.
Don’t get me wrong, I still wouldn’t want to get him upset with me, but I was still able to enjoy his character and not have to worry that I was going to have to put down the book because I was freaked out. deVries is a strong character as well; it was really amazing to watch how he was with Lindsey throughout the book. When she needed someone, he was there for her. And not only just for her but also for the kids at the shelter as well. Trust me, when you get to that scene, you will start crying!
Lindsey was the one person that I was a bit unsure about while reading the story. There were a few times that I was so upset with her and wanted to smack her upside the head because she was so crazy! But other times, I just wanted to hug her because she was so easy to connect with.
I did really like the compromise that deVries and Lindsey were able to come up with in theirrelationship. I was a bit unsure of what was going to happen between the two of
them, but it was great to follow along with that.
There was tons of action and sexiness that takes place in this story, and I do think it was done in a great balance. I was really pleased with how the story played out and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series!
