Once again Cartwright has drawn me into a story that I just didn’t want to leave.
Ella and Pierce were both fun characters and they drew me into the story. While I’m not a fan of BDSM books, Cartwright writes them in a way that it still has an appeal to me. The stories aren’t 100% about the BDSM, but also about the relationship forming between Ella and Pierce.
I understand Ella’s reluctance when it comes to Pierce and his profession because it’s not easy being attached to someone in the military. But even though she has her fears, it was great to follow along as she followed her heart.
Pierce was a good strong character who was willing to do what it took to show Ella that it was worth being with him.
Overall, this is another good read from Cartwright and I can’t wait to read more in the future.
