There isn't much more that I can say about Harper Bliss and her stories. This third installment of the series started off with an excellent BDSM scene between Alex and Maddie.

Alex kind of wears her heart on her sleeve and since she generally wears sleeveless tank tops that complicates and exacerbates things. She also reacts at nano speed levels in response to her heart, failing to utilize a friend's calmer and cleare
