I've read A LOT of romance/erotic novels and this was really a mis-step by Maya Banks.
I've followed the author for a while, enjoying the themes of the kink community and holding them as a higher standard of writing, especially next to the juvenile, even though successful, Shades of Grey. This was so much worse, it makes me think it was written by someone completely different. Ugh, everything was predictable, overwrought, had extreme gender role stereotypes (not in a sexy way) and I skipped through 50% of the half of the book I got through because of angsty internal dialogue. Maybe the angst was the kink? Ain't nobody got time for that.

I'm not even sure I should comment on this book. I agree with another who commented though, I so HATED the 2 main characters. Drake, oh, I wanted to beat him myself! And for many, many days. Evangeline, all she did was whine and cry and think negatively...on EVERYTHING!!!!! Absolutely neither WAS likeable. I also didn't care for the, *ahem* "sharing" of Evangeline. Not the worst book I've ever read, but likely the worst by Banks. And that's just sad. Not great rating from me. Oh, and the story line was....is drab a nice enough, ladylike word, ok then I'll use that and leave it alone. A real disappointment.

I savored the second book in the series. It is not like other series, especially 50 Shades which is my favorite love/erotic story series. Its a new direction for Maya Banks and I look forward to a book about Silas and Justice.

This book was really disappointing. Neither of the main characters is likeable - Drake is a jerk with trust issues who just expects his woman to never ask any questions or be involved with his life outside the home, even after his shady business puts her in danger. For that matter, he doesn't even let her leave the house without his men along. And even worse, Evangeline puts up with this from him, decides it's OK to not know just what kind of crime and whatnot Drake is into because she just loves him *so* much, and keeps meekly going back to him every time he's horrible to her. This is not a healthy relationship (D/s or otherwise), and reading about it wasn't fun or romantic or whatever this type of book is supposed to be.
