I liked this one. This wasn't as much BDSM as it was a star-crossed lover story. I love the Cress brothers. The tattoo, family life and how they collar their women is hot!.

I enjoyed this story, however it felt out of place in the series. Instead of being the 3rd, it should have been the fourth. I enjoyed the dynamic between Josh and Tempest, especially how easily he controlled her without physical discipline. The mental dominance over Tempest is more along the lines of what I enjoy about D/s, so this story was more along the lines of what I enjoy. However, I could only give it 4 stars because of the discontinuity of the story within the scope of the series.
3 1/2 stars. This is part of a series featuring 4 brothers and a sister in which they each get their own story. This is about the youngest brother Josh who gets back together with his sub after she left him 8 years earlier. A good read. Milder than the other brothers' stories. Probably my favorite.

This was my least favorite in the series. I was annoyed that with the past history between these characters that Josh just dropped everything and fell for her again without question. It was too unrealistic that someone would just forget how badly they were hurt by another person and willing jump into the fire again.

Tempest was a pathetic excuse for a submissive. She treated her Dom badly and he still took her back. She didn't deserve him and I didn't much like the book. She kept going back to her manipulative father and picking him over Josh. I disliked her character so much, I wanted to punch her.

This book was the least of my favorite in the series. For some reason this one did not do it for me. It was not a bad but, nor was it a great book.
