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: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is a decent erotica, but all the other parts of the story failed to keep my attention or interest. I ended up skimming most the story to just read the sexy bits, which are well worth readingStill I think it holds promise for someone looking for realistic BDSM erotica featuring a woman of color, who isn't a shrinking violent. That is not to say there are problematic bits, but many are (sadly) commonly found in interracial/multicultural romance.
Things I liked:
Stuff I didn't like:
So this didn't knock it out of the park for me, I don't think it's a total loss. I really loved how aware the narrative was of just how complex BDSM can be for a woman of color, especially as a submissive to a white man. Sadly, the rest of the story just didn't grab me. Still worth checking out if it sounds like something you might like.
