I've read many of Ms. Summers' books and recommend them if you're looking for BDSM stories that contain consent, relatively light play, and characters who are likeable and relatively realistic, and who view BDSM as a partnership. Although this is the second book in a series, it can be read as a standalone as each follows the burgeoning relationship between one Dom from Club Underworld and the woman he falls in love with. I do want to advise prospective readers that although the sex scenes are ...more

The second story in the Crescent City Kings was as good, if maybe not better than the first, and I loved it. Each story will read well as a stand-alone. I will admit this story is an emotional roller coaster ride with the various characters. My heart breaks for Phoebe and all she has lost, the memories, the regrets, and the horror and fear she has endured, and now, trying to move forward in life. The story has a great cast of characters, plenty of interaction, and emotions. This

Phoebe's trust is rewarded!
by sewsummore

Phoebe was a woman who had survived an abusive husband who almost killed her the last time he punished her for the rage he carried inside him. Years later she is a much stronger woman who hides her pain deep inside her, refusing to allow any man close until she met Graham. He was a surviver of a bad marriage, content to have his sexual needs catered for by willing submissives who belonged to his BDSM Club. Not until Phoebe had he felt such an attraction to

Another excellent story from Anya Summers. It follows her usual pattern. Phoebe is a damaged young woman – having survived a marriage where her husband almost killed her, and killed their unborn child. She has moved back to where she grew up, to open a bed and breakfast, and the contractor turns out to be the first guy who kissed her, when she was a freshman in high school. Now he is a successful contractor, and attracted to her. He has a hard time breaking through the defenses she has built in ...more

A really lovely story of two people who had been betrayed in their marriages coming together for a second chance. It shows the courage and trust needed between two people to make a relationship work. From a kiss at 14 to entering the lifestyle, Phoebe has suffered more than than most of us can imagine and yet she is able to trust Graham enough to let herself fall in love with him. Graham for his part had been deceived by his wife and yet he fell in love with Phoebe as soon as he saw her again ...more

I sometimes wonder if, as a survivor of domestic abuse, I am more drawn to stories about that and the way other survivors thrive – and Phoebe certainly thrives! One morning, she opens the door to Graham, whom she hasn’t seen since high school. After a bad marriage, Graham limits his “relationships” to scenes at the BDSM club in which he’s a Dom. This book is about two incredibly strong people forging a relationship against their own histories, and it is a demonstration of trust and honor. The ...more

Second change in love and life

Graham and Phoebe shared an unexpected kiss during high school but the age difference then meant they each went their separate ways. Now Phoebe is back and Graham walks back into her life as her contractor. Both have scars (emotionally and for Phoebe, physically) from previous relationships. I would add a trigger warning for Phoebe's past trauma. Their relationship journey is paced perfectly for the emotional growth that leads to physical intimacy. I appreciated

I was thrilled to be offered an ARC of this book. Anya Summers always has a way of pulling me into her stories and making me feel as if I'm a part of whatever is going on. It's no different with this one, "Far Reaching Circumstances." The full range of emotions experienced by Phoebe and Graham are sometimes spine-tingling and then erotic. There's a deep seeded mystery running through the entire storyline which really blew me away at the time. It certainly wasn't what I thought it was but then ...more

Having read other books by this author, this one was a little different in that it was almost a slow burn romance. This is not a bad thing as I think it was appropriate given the background of Phoebe in particular although Graham has had his fair share of emotional trauma from his previous relationship. There may be some triggers for some readers from Phoebe’s relationship with her ex-husband. There is an element of suspense and mystery that I enjoyed although I did feel the ending was wrapped ...more

This book, the 2nd in the Crescent City series is completely standalone. It tells the story of Phoebe who has escaped an unbelievably bad marriage to make a new life for herself, complete with her dream of opening a B&B. In doing so, she reconnects with old friend Graham. This story gives Phoebe an unbelievably awful domestic history that I wish I could say would never happen. Unfortunately though, it is all too common. I found this a wonderful read even though I personally found some ...more

Another great book from Anya Summers. The story was compelling and interesting with vivid descriptions that painted pictures in my mind. There was just enough danger to create some suspense and a need for protection. The main characters were well developed and likeable and I felt like I knew them. I really enjoyed the romance and the development of their relationship. The love seemed to jump off the pages. I also enjoyed the familiarity of the characters from the first book. I can't wait for the ...more

Clear your schedule because you are not going to want to stop reading this book! The depth in the characters, which is enhanced by the dual point of view nature of the book, made these people seem real. Phoebe has quite the story to tell, and Graham is the perfect one to listen. I thought I had things figured out, but nope! I am loving the characters, the town, and the club in this series and I cannot wait to read the next one!

The second book in the series, but it can be read as a standalone without problems.

This story is a bit of a slow burns, which fits the story. Both characters carry scars from their past and trust is not a thing easy to come by/

And I loved reading about all the plans to make the house into a B&B and reading about all the yummy food.

It did feel the end of the book was a bit rushed and I wanted to know how things went with the renovation and the actual opening of the B&B, but maybe

What an amazing story of healing, trust and thriving after the most nightmarish life spent with an abuser. The story is so compelling, driven and full of understanding and love. The characters are just amazing. Although this book could be a trigger for some, I found it empowering to see how strong a person can be after such abuse. Amazing writing by an amazing author.

Phoebe had a crush on Graham a lifetime ago. Graham is the one man who can mend her heart and help her feel strong enough to face the old fears and heartbreak that weigh her down. I loved how sure and patient Graham was and I loved Phoebe's strength and perseverance. A great addition to this new series and easily read as a stand-alone.

Good story 3 stars - It has a good story but often, the characters are in their head so there is not much dialogue between. The mystery of who is jeopardizing the B&B was interesting. The steamy sex and believable attraction is there to hold your attention too. I like the story but I wish it has more conversations between Phoebe and Graham.

This is book 2 in the Crescent City Kings. You can read this book as a standalone. Phoebe has bought a mansion that she wants to turn into a bed and breakfast. She hires Graham, a high school friend to do the remodeling. They are interested in each other from the beginning. When someone targets her, she turns to Graham for protection. There is a HEA.

Phoebe made it thru her horrific marriage with emotional and physical scars, but she is free. When she meets her high school crush again, she is torn. She doesn't want a relationship, but he is still her crush. Graham is a dominant. Can he show her that his Dom side will cherish her? A good romance.

Love the new series!

Normally i give AS a 5 star. This one had too many editing errors for a 5 star. Lazy errors that her editor should have caught, as well as several sentences that just didnt make sense and that were missing words. Although i loved the story the editing left me very disappointed in the quality of the book. I look forward to the next book!

With each story I am more and more surrendered to Anya Summers writting.
These Dom are so lovable, so worried with the submissives, that makes you dream with a man like that.
Graham is just sinfully irresistible.
