Long time geek, fangirl, mother, and reader. I've got a lot to say, you might not like it all, but it will be honest and hopefully helpful.
Disclaimer: A copy of this book was provided by the publisher for an honest review.
The story is short and steamy, but the characters lacked depth. I didn't really connect with them, which can be a bit of a mood killer for me. There was a bit of kinky play, but that's all it was "play." I wouldn't shelve this as BDSM. This is more of the light play that vanilla people do to feel "naughty." Meh.
It's a quick sexy read, but little else.
Additional Note: I was thrown off by the cover which clearly displays a woman of color, yet the book makes no mention of it (or at least none that I could find). So I can only assume that either the author just never bothered to put Lily's ethnicity into the story, or the cover artist assumed that by using a black & white photo of a woman of color she could pass as white, or they couldn't even tell she's a woman of color. I'm put off by all of these possibilities, especially since the cover art (which promised a woman of color) was a big reason I wanted to read the story in the first place.
