Rating: 4 stars out of 5:
Despite his past abuse, James has come to terms with his relationship with his Dom and lover Seth. Seth treats James with all the trust and love his sub desires. There is only one thing left to do to make it all complete: Seth needs to put a collar on James.
I honestly liked the novella much better. I felt like James knows and has agreed to the relationship and situation he’s in. That aspect is something I felt was missing in the first story. It was so nice to see James confident and loved by Seth. Seth’s character too showed an improvement from Designs of Desire, the first novel. Seth felt far less exasperating. I think both characters made great progress in this one. I’ll continue on with these two. I want to see how their relationship develops further.
I definitely recommend this story. Just be aware of the bdsm components to this story and series. Now on to the next installment in Desires Entwined series by Tempeste O’Riley.
The cover artist Reese Dante. I think the cover was fitting based on the last book big announcement at the end. It was nicely done, and I really liked it.
