I love bondage, domination, and that sense of coercion in erotica or erotic romance. This story gave me all that I needed and wanted to read. I love that Genevieve feels as if she is forced to do something, is forced to give Sinclair his ninety days of sex and submission on demand. It's almost as if something compels her.
Why does she want to please him? How can she resist this man? How can she do what he demands? I love how he is commanding and arrogant. And his penetrating eyes. So assessing, watching her for every tell. That's what is so good about him and this situation. While Genevieve has the feeling of being forced, she is not really being forced to do anything but recognize her own deep-seated desire to be with this man, but she must have this idea of coercion in order to let go. She needs this contract with Sinclair to justify her need for him and her submission to him.
My favorite scene is when he ties her to the motorcycle, stretching her out on it, exposing her while he stays dressed head to toe in his black leathers, gloves and helmet. Man, and he does her while those men, strangers, watch. In my twenties, I wouldn't have neen brave enough, but if Sinclair asked me to do this now? I love everything he has pushed her to do. That motorcycle scene is every bad girl fantasy you've ever had- your indecent clothes, the bad boy biker dressed in leather taking you wherever he wants, strangers looking at you astride a bike with your arms around your bad boy, your short skirt riding up way too high.
While Genevieve clings to the contract and the bargain, so that she can keep from feeling too deeply for Sinclair, he hates the contract being brought up; his expression becomes cold and tight. He's expecting more from her, wanting more than the bargain. As I was reading, I kept wondering about his motivation; just what does he expect at the conclusion of this arrangement?
I was also happy with the endng. It was just what I was hoping it would be, making this story a bit more than just erotica for me, as Sinclair and Genevieve both got more than they had bargained for.
Great story with some very erotic D/s action and with one very sexy hero pulling all the strings.
