This book is my favorite in the entire series.(behind the first one of course)I loved that she stayed true to who Minshom was, basically a mean SOB. But, she did a great job making us understand why he was the way he was. And, somehow he really was redeemed. I totally didn't expect it. Like most, I questioned whether Minshom could really be redeemed or even likeable in any way. Well, he still was't that likeable but his story captivated me. And I loved Jane, as well. Both had depth that many of the other characters in this series lacked. Great book overall."

      "Kinky erotica often gets a bad rap these days. People don't understand that their portrayal of violence, abuse, and the like are fantasies, and it sometimes leads to rookies in the BDSM community not knowing what they're doing. I've run into things like that from fans of books like Mile High, and I tell them - would you play a video game about playing video games? Are movies about people sitting in theaters? So, then, books about BDSM aren't about healthy and communicative relationships. There is sexual violence in this book - a sadomasochistic session even lands the MC in the hospital. If you don't like sexual violence, then this is a HARD pass, and for that I give it one point off - but if this is your thing, this is a wild and erotic fantasy."

      "This book is coming off the heels of 50 Shades of Grey and I can see the resemblance. If you're into erotica, it's good and will fulfill your desires. Don't go into the book expecting some masterpiece. It's a fun, arousing book and I'm glad I spent the time going through it."

      "This is for specialized tastes. If you don't like Jane Austen, skip it. But if you think this is going to be basically a novelized version of a porn film in a Jane Austen setting, it's not that either. (Whether that's good or bad depends on your taste...) If you are the sort who liked Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, then this might be more to your liking, but this is more intellectual (and obviously more "erotic")."
