Product Description

Product Description

He awakened a need within her. But now she belongs to another...

Cole is successful beyond his dreams. He can have any woman he wants, but there's only one he can't stop thinking about: his childhood sweetheart, Renita. He's never forgotten his first taste of innocent love and the desire that consumed them-or the pain he brought upon her...

Her long-ago brush with submission awakened a longing in Ren that drove her to walk the darker edge of desire. She has become a beautiful woman at ease with her sexuality and unapologetic about her need for a dominant man. When Cole finds her again, he's gutted that she belongs to another. Ren's current master agrees to give her to Cole for a short time, but then she must return to his keeping. And though Cole agrees to this bargain, he knows he will never be able to let Ren go again...

5.0 out of 5 stars liked it more when i was finished 9 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a big, huge Maya Banks fan love this series and the KGI series, This is Cole's story, Cole is having dinner with Damien when he hears a laugh and turns round to see its Ren, his 1st and only real love, after getting over the shock he realises she is with another man and wearing his collar, he meets with her master and they come to a agreement that Ren will spend two weeks with Cole and see if she feels the same, at first I had a problem with this, why would you give someone up for two weeks and risk losing them, after pondering I came round to the idea that Lucas (Rens master) just wanted her to be happy, I wont continue with the plot or it will spoil the book but the story is great totaly different way at looking at a bdsm relationship like all relationships there is sometimes the one who got away and if we were given a second chance no matter how happy we thought we were would we take it? would you always wonder the person you are with was there because you were there first choice, loads of really hot sex scences here you will need a ice pack and a glass of wine for some of them, but as always a great story the ending was lovely and the story stayed with me after I had finished.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for the faint hearted. 25 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase

Maya Banks has written Cole's story for his fans. She has stated it is not book 5 in the sweet series, but then again she has still included sweet in the title. It is far from sweet! I'm no prude, but some of the sex scenes were pornographic. Even I was shocked.

So Cole has featured in some of the other books and we didn't know much about him. Turns out when he was young, he fell for a girl called Ren. They both wish to experiment with bondage etc and Cole being the Master in the relationship. However, Cole got a bit carried away with a belt and hurt Ren...even leaving a scar. He couldn't bear the guilt he felt so he left her. It didn't ring true with what we know of Cole that he would give up the love of his life because he hurt her when they were learning what they liked. It seems Ren was not upset he had hurt her...she is more upset he left her.

Fast forward 10 years and whilst Cole is out for dinner with Damien and Serena, he sees Ren. Unfortunately, she is with her new Master, Lucas.

The book starts with Lucas' story. He reminds me a lot of Damien and I liked him. He takes care of Ren. The second part of the book is Cole. I didn't actually like Cole's story that much. I didn't like the sex scenes or what they got up to (M/F, M/M/M/F!). The final part of the book is Ren's story.

Basically, Lucas knows that Ren was once in love with Cole and he knows Cole wants Ren, so he allows Cole to have her for two weeks (he doesn't tell Ren). He wants her back after two weeks. There is too much of Ren thinking and missing Lucas and even realising she is in love with him! But, she loves Cole as well. Cole loves Ren, Lucas loves Ren. It has a HEA, but not one that I was pleased with.

I have just finished reading this book for the 3rd time, and thoroughly enjoyed the story yet again. Of all the page porn I've read this is my favourite.

Ren is a petite submissive of with some asian heritage, her master is Lucas and they have been together for a year in a very successful relationship. The only downside is that Lucas is known to be a short-term master and Ren adores his handling of her but accepts that it may not be long term.

Cole is Ren's first real love and the person who she explored her sway toward D/s with, he made a mistake - during an intense scene involving a bullwhip he marked her badly and she needed stitches. Cole never forgave himself and withdrew from Ren physically and then eventually left her.

Cole sees Ren with Lucas at his club and decides that he wants her back, for good and here lies the basis of the story - both dominant men want Ren for themselves but also love her enough to want her to be happy. Lucas gives Ren to Cole for two weeks to work their 'thing' out of their system and this allows Ren and Cole to re-ignite their love but also leads Ren to accept her love for Lucas. This is heartbreaking to read at times as you feel Ren's anguish and it is written very well.

The sex scenes are extremely hot, some of the best i've read and these include menage/group scenes, bdsm, public scenes, anal and a very hot captain and steward!!!

I will wait awhile but will definately be reading this yet again when the page porn well runs dry for a while!

I have definite Marmite moments with this author - I like her Highlander series, I like her KGI stuff, but I don't like her Sweet tales - which seem a bit incestuous and too much like a 'meat market' (though this one wasn't the former, but did have quite a bit of the latter), and I don't like her Silhouette Desire stuff. However, I'm kind of compelled to read the Sweet series, which is, thankfully, readily available at my local library.

The amazon blurb and the two previous reviewers have done well in relaying the tale, so I won't repeat any of that, but I will say that the 'love' in this book, well-explained as it was, is not love in any way that I'd want. Sharing a lover with all and sundry, despite her not having any objections to it, is fulfilling a hedonistic desire, not fulfilling a fantasy because you love someone. In fact, in the build-up to the sharing, there were no conversations, just 'would you like this/that' when other guys were around, and so, Ren said she would, so an orgy was had by all.

I didn't get her lifestyle choice, as we didn't really get an explanation of her background/family life, and what made her crave pain with her sex, what made her so totally submissive. To be the latter in some circumstances is certainly fine, but not in someone of only 16yo; I mean, at that age, you can't make a life-affecting decision, and yes, I appreciate that Cole was older and held off, but it was hardly realistic. As for 'you own me. I belong to you' and being nothing but a puppet and a possession - how is that a strong female in 'regular Joe/Jane life'?

I didn't feel as if I knew the trio, as none of them truly voiced any feelings; it seemed as if they were characters role-playing in The Lifestyle.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read
Cole's story is sensitively told. The relationship which develops between Cole, Ren and Lucas is different. But it shows that addiction will triumph if love survives.
