This was a good read with two solid main characters. Each grieving in their own way, this story is a sweet romance showing how two broken people can fix themselves with some bdsm to boot. Unlike many other books on bdsm this one goes into emotional depth, the bdsm theme is really a back plot which brings the characters together and I loved the details that Sallinger bought in showing that bdsm isnt just about physical pain. If you love this one I also recommend Charlotte Stein.

I have read a few BDSM books, but this one was different. There was some BDSM, but it was light. The main story is about Evan and Claire who both have difficult pasts and need to come to terms with them and move on;
The writing was very good and at one point I was in tears.
Really enjoyed this book and will look out for other books by the same author

I quite liked this book, read it in a day. I loved bridget she was rather open, broad-minded and amusing.Claire was a complex and interesting person that definately wished to explore new ways of sex with pain. Evan I found a bit confusing in parts as he is a very strong dominant person through the book and he starts calling claire " little one " almost like conforting a child,which I found odd since it was supposed to be a dom sub relationship, but generally the story was entertaining, sexy and steamy.
Worth the money and I would read more of her books in the future.

Claire decides to join a book club after the break down of a ten year relationship so she can get out of the house and meet new people, Evan owns the book store and when he see's Claire he can't help his body's reaction to her but he hates it because he is still very much in love with his wife and Sub who died of cancer. When he see's Claire reading from the BDSM section he realises she is a novice and try's to help her out with her reading material and in the end offers to be her Dom so she can feel safe while learning about it all but it does not go smoothly. I liked this book, it has a great story line and i liked the characters. Defiantly worth a read.

A really enjoyable book with two great main characters. To be honest I was in two minds at the beginning whether it was taking just a little bit too long before the two gave into their mutual attraction but as I read on I realised I was wrong, as the beginning sets the chemistry between the two

The story focuses on Claire who meets Evan at the local book store (that he owns) when she joins a book club. Claire is coming out of a difficult breakup with a guy that couldn't understand her submissive needs. Evan, a dominant, can't begin to think about another relationship of any kind after the death of his wife. However, the longer the two fight the attraction between them the harder it becomes. Especially when Evan agrees to introduce Claire into a dominant/submissive relationship, although tells her it can be nothing more. The deeper the two become the harder they fall in love. We get to watch whether Evan can move forward after his wife's death or will he loose Claire.

A great story, and although it appears to be full of BDSM, it isn't as there are only a few scenes and these are not extreme. However, the chenistry between the two can be felt on every page you read. The focus is on the development from lust to love. Would recommend

A good book to read if you fancy a steamy, sexy story. Evan owns a book shop and Claire joins the book club that meets there.
He is a dom and ends up showing Claire about being a submissive. The book club members are good fun and help with the matchmaking.They both end up confronting their fears and feelings about the relationship .Really sweet romantic love story with some light BDSM.

There were lots of things I liked about this book. It read well, the personalities of the mature lovers were developed, their back stories convincing and the hero is a small town bookshop owner rather than an implausibly rich businessman. However, it was very slow to get started. While I prefer romances that don't have a sex scene on every page, I felt that the sexual tension between the hero and heroine didn't exactly thrum and the book was almost over before they actually got into bed. Nevertheless a fairly enjoyable read.

Great story. Loved Evan and Claire. Their relationship develops at a good pace which feels very believable. The sex is hot too which is always a bonus!! Will look out for more books by Elene Sallinger.
