Drusilla Stasevich wants to leave the past behind and start the next chapter of her life. Returning to her hometown to open her dream kink club, Escape, seems like the perfect solution. But it can be tricky making dreams come true—especially when the person you want to share them with isn’t around anymore.

Amie Templeton is no stranger to tough times. She’s learned to make it on her own, and doesn’t do relationships outside the kink world. When her ex Dru moves back to town, old feelings surface. But that’s fine, right, since Dru has just opened the hottest new kink club in town?

Dru and Amie want to get the distracting spark between them out of their systems. Instead, their intense play sessions fan that spark into a flame. As if Dru didn’t have enough on her plate, an anonymous saboteur threatens to push her new club out of business. It will take the help of everybody at Escape to set things right again, and a lot of trust for Dru and Amie to start working toward a new life together.addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16April's Showering Words

Amie has more issues than an average person.  She is a dominant, and completely in to women. Which for most in the life would not be a problem, but Amie comes from a very religious family.  When they found out about her liking girls she was disowned and left to survive on her own.  Amie doesn’t do relationships, she does scenes. But when her first love comes back home things change, Amie is not a fan of change.  As she finds Dru deeper and deeper in her heart, she is emotionally terrified and unsure what to do about it. Amie does what feels right she works through her feelings in scenes and then talks afterwards.  She decides to fight for Dru, even if that means she is fighting herself.

Dru is drowning in stress, she is still missing Padma, trying to get their dream club up and running. Get the other members of the BDSM community to join the new club. She invites an Amie to her club, for help and to reconnect with her old lover.  Dru is caught between her feelings for who is gone, and the renewed feelings that have rekindled for Amie.  When she gets overwhelmed with stress, it’s Amie she goes to.  As their friendship goes strong, so do the emotions between them.  Dru questions herself, is she ready for another relationship?  Can she walk away again from Amie?

This book actually deals with a lot of emotional issues. It’s a book that evolves BDSM kink and F/F relations. I liked this book a lot. It went in for more than just the club and scene dynamic. I got to know the characters and a little of how they got to the point I their life where this story starts. Overall a good read with a lot of kink and hot scenes.
