Really closer maybe to 1-1/2 stars.

Some spoilers below

It seemed like the author lacked the courage of her convictions here. He's an escaped convict, a serial rapist and murderer. But not really, he's innocent of course. He's totally into bondage. That's why he got fingered for the crime. But really just some pretty vanilla bondage stuff. The tie her hands over her head stuff. He didn't even really need to dominate her because she was falling to her knees every other minute to try to get him not

How to rate an erotica?
There's the narrative, the plot, the characters... but let's face it, the enjoyment you get from it depends mainly if you're into the same kinds of kinks than the author... right ?
So here you've got a nice little story, not too tame, not too wild, not too dark, or the complete opposite of all this depending on your sensitivity.
Well... let's just say I'll read more from Jaid Black ;)
3.5-4 stars

This was a pretty good story. I liked Lynne and Jesse and their story was enjoyable even if a point or 2 needed to be taken with a grain of salt.

Lynne is a nice lady that works in web design. She used to live in Florida but decided to move to West Virginia for a new start after divorcing her cheating slime-ball of a husband. Lynne had to take a detour while driving to her new home and lack of signs along with lots of snow and ice ends her up in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The end was like Prison Break's season 2 finale ;) For Link. I am not sure if you will like or not this one.

Not what I expected. But much better. Good little short read. Nice.
Mind blown in such a brilliant way that I had to re-read it immediately. Loved it!

The story is quite thrilling at first, as I get excited with the synopsis given by the book. But later on, it gets a little cheesy for me. I can't get how daft the police is to not give thinking to the evidence that links them to the real suspect. I can't also get how the guy travels in freezing cold from his prison to the cabin. Anyway, it is nice to have a happy ending for him, and all the loose ends are seemed to be tied.

2·5 stars. Short. I didn't see the end coming. that probably says more about me not being into it rather than the author writing a good story. it wasn't really that great, not terrible either

p.s. it's expensive for the length and quality...just sayin'
