I won't bore you with the details of what I would expect from a book called 'Slave Breakers' but I can tell you that this ain't it. Apparently slaves get broken by being nice to them. Rationally, I am sure this is better for all parties concerned, and I am happy for them, it just doesn't make for very titillating reading. Even when we get to the 'pain training' the author makes sure everybody knows that we're all still friends, really. We wouldn't want to hurt your feelings while we flog you. Seriously, I've read a far more gripping description of caning in a children's book (Boy: Tales of Childhood by Roald Dahl).

I think this book should be renamed. I suggest 'Everybody Loves Holden', or 'Holden's Harem'.

As for Bran, our delicate and needy teenage protagonist, he mainly stirs motherly concern in me. Not sexy.

It has to be the stupidest title I've ever run into.

Certainly one of the most misleading.

Mel Don't listen to Kate, Marleen. She gave this 4 stars. While she's pestering me about my ratings and preferences.
I felt exactly the same way about this one...

Sarasaya ahah, Texas series is a sort of hardcore version of this one.

Mel Which Texas series is that?

message 7: by Mel (new) - rated it 3 stars

Mel Thanks Sara. Added it. Although I hate reading from the screen. I'm glad somebody had already turned TA into epub for me, when I got it.
Then again: maybe it's a good pastime for slow hours at work, LOL.

LenaLena Is there any point in reading the next ones?

Mel Hey, they're free! ;)

Sarasaya LOL, Lee's story is the best one. But still fluffy... more sex, though.

Rachel he mainly stirs motherly concern in me.

Interesting, thanks for adding that. I recently got halfway through Whatever the Cost and had to put it down, realizing that despite the graphic sexual content and growing affection between the MC's, all I wanted to do was call CPS and rescue the boys from their situation. Not the feelings I wanted stirred when I picked up the book. All sexiness was gone at that point.
