"I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads."
This is the second in the series, and whilst you don't need to read 'Embracing My Submission' first, it would make certain relationships clearer.
The story starts away from the Club, but the topic of D/s is there from the beginning. I really enjoyed the story; I liked seeing familiar characters in different settings - although it made me even more angry on Julianna's behalf ... ; and the relationship was H O T. However, the writing style was infuriating. Where a simple well known word would have been perfect, an incorrect one was plucked from the thesaurus to replace it. I am a very fast reader, but had to keep stopping to work out was really was meant. In places it was amusing, but mostly it spoiled the flow of the story.
So, I do think it is a worthwhile read, as it forms a key part of the series, but don't let the language stop you from enjoying the story itself.
