A good read, but I wish this novella could have been longer and more in depth because I didn’t really understand the motivation behind Devon’s need to dominate Shelly even though it wasn’t as much her thing as he wanted it to be.

One never gets tired of Madame Eve 1NS series... all are perfect bedtime stories.

Devon is devastated at losing Shelly. She walks out on him, and there isn't simply anyone who can fill the empty space she leaves. Devon has a really dark side, and even though he can pretty much have anyone he wants, he wants no one. He only wants Shelly, but he has no clue as to her whereabouts. Until of course he spots her in Vegas, the last place he would've thought she'd be at. He contracts Madame Eve's service
Definitely short, at least the two characters knew each other previously before declaring their undying love for one another. Very little emphasis was put on dealing with the issues that drove them apart, but due to the length of the story, I can see why. Not terrible and the sex was sexy but I was never drawn into the characters' lives like I would have liked to have been.

This book was a free Kindle download I picked up 07/19/12 for the Why Buy the Cow? reading challenge.

A super short read that was good overall. I thought that the way the characters came back together was interesting and what a use of a playground ;0) I wish there had been a bit more character development because I didn't feel connected to them or what they were going through. ...more
