Story Review Rating: 3 Paddles
Lovers reunite in a BDSM club unexpectedly. Braxton Malone never forgot a lover who nearly killed him. Dating a mafia boss's daughter is always risky because one never knows if "Daddy" will take exception. Some people joke about a father showing a gun to a prospective boyfriend to protect their daughter's virtue. Brax learned the hard way that some fathers will do more than just brandish a weapon. Antonietta is the well-known daughter of a New York mob boss. She takes a chance with Brax and it ends horribly.
The plot is predictable and uses a plot device I'm not fond of - deus ex machina. The conflict is a bit contrived with Antonietta "Toni" forced to marry a man she doesn't want. The twist is her bachlorette party she throws for herself. She decides to experience her sexual fantasy before she is stuck with a most heinous male. The problem I have with how this conflict is resolved is the new character out of nowhere to help save the day. It's an easy card to play and makes the book average.
The BDSM in this story is mediocre. It's sweet and romantic, perfect for readers who are just starting to read erotic kinky stories. While Brax is reputed as being a high demand Dom, there isn't a scene which shows his mastery. He does come across as a romantic. He is designed as a lovable male character which works well. Toni comes across as a low self-esteem helpless female. She is weak and nothing about her explains why Brax wants her so much. Other than her spankable booty and sexy curves, she has nothing to offer. She does still have her hymen intact so perhaps this is the allure. Men do like to be the first to possess a female. This is a nice romantic BDSM view of the BDSM lifestyle with a high end BDSM club. This kinky tale is recommended for new to BDSM readers.
