5 Stars

Wow!!! What a wild ride.  If you are familiar with Ashton’s writing you know the panty melting scenes you will get to read. After reading the Insatiable Series I didn’t know what to expect.  I was pleasantly surprised to see the return of Ash and Amber and we even more surprised this book is darker than his others.

This is a great read and provided a more detailed account of Amber’s life and what she has been through in her life.  She has a family back in Chicago that she is estranged from and doesn’t really care to see them.  She decides to be the bigger person and go to visit her younger sister and her father.  We find out Amber was almost raped when she was 18 years old by a family friend.  This is a twisted turn of events that caught this reader off guard.

Amber as we learn had a long-time boyfriend that was into the Dom/sub relationship that morphed into Daddy/lg over time.  The relationship didn’t end up where she was hoping and…..yep not going to give much away here.

Even though the series is new I personally believe this series picks up where Insatiable ended.  There are some scenes that go back in time but Ash has created his new company and Veronica is long gone.  I was very excited to get some of my questions and was pleasantly surprised with what I read.

As we know Ash’s mother leaves him when he was just a young boy and he has carried that hurt for a long time.  During his father’s funeral, she reappears and turns his world upside down.  Based on what he hears his goes back to his childhood home in search of evidence that what she said is true.  What he finds shocks and angers him. Things just progress from there.

As much as I would like to say this book ends as a HEA it does and doesn’t.  There are still many question left unanswered in this book and has left me eager to read the next book in this series.  The complexity of the characters had this reader trying to keep all the past and present events straight.  The scenes with Adyen Donovan were intense while Ash practiced his dark side in a club where safe words are honored.

If you are looking for a dark, twisted, hot as hell book that will be a series then this book is for you.
