This is short (listed at 70 pages), but good. Stacy and Brendan grew up together, so had a long history, including a betrayal before the book begins. That, of course, means they can skip the meeting and getting to know each other portion for the most part, leaving the majority of this very short book for the meat of the story, which is about clearing up some problems from Stacy's past, going back to the town where she grew up, facing an unhappy situation and Brendan again.
The twist on this one is Stacy is a Domme and Brendan the sub, long before they really understood that dynamic together. They start to revisit that at the end of this book, re-establish their romance and friendship. I loved all the characters in this book as they were certainly different, so refreshing, from Stacy's adoptive fathers to Sarge the bar owner. I'm guessing there will be more books so hopefully more information about all those crazy characters. It was so nice to see the unique personalities rather than the more stereotypical ones in romances.
No typos or grammar problems that I noticed. The accents threw me a little in print at first, but I enjoyed it. I give this one 3.5 to 4 stars, probably would have more towards the 4 if it was a tad longer, but very good for length.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley for an honest review.
