A slow-ish burn romance with Dom/sub personalities.
What do you do when you’re hired to help someone and they don’t want to be helped? What do you do when you’re trying to just survive but someone is doing all they can to change that? And will it be for better or for worse?
I enjoyed that the narrator POV switched between Damien and Bryanna, so that we can get insight as to what each is thinking and feeling. I also enjoyed that we got some overlap of scenes from the other’s POV so to give more insight. I did sometimes feel like scenes were written quickly and could have been fleshed out to give more information, but it did not take away from the story and may have been more my inquisitive nature (I want to know more!). I appreciated the interaction that the secondary characters had, from Damien’s colleagues, to the others who were currently in Bryanna’s life.
Some trigger warnings of characters being drugged and prepared to be sold. Trafficking, and battling it, is a common theme throughout.
Note: Book 4, Relentless, basically occurs at the same time with a few cross references.
