Don't be fooled by the BDSM trappings -- this is a very sweet, old-fashioned romance!

What really inspired me to write this review is that the cover is so yucky. That's right, I feel it's my duty to tell everyone NOT to judge this book by its cover! The girl on the cover looks like the poster child for poor personal hygiene. She looks like she hasn't trimmed, brushed, or washed her hair since the Dodgers left Brooklyn. She looks like Bigfoot's date to the prom!

After a devastating D/s relationship, which left Holly Broussard with both emotional and physical scarring, she had closed herself off from any type of romantic relationship.

The first in a series of short stories that are meant to take you on a trip into the world of bondage, and as always with Ms. Adair, very well done.

Holly has a preference for being a submissive sexually. She's comfortable with her choice and is comfortable in that type of relationship.

Mostly master/slave situations. It was imaginative and erotic. Holly dates Greg who abuses her so she breaks up with him. She avoids men until she meets Ethan who offers her a financial deal she can't refuse if she'll be his sex slave for one weekend.

This short story is also published in the anthology All She Wants.

Story length: 77 pages. Sexual language: erotic. Number of sex scenes: five. Setting: current day US. Copyright: 2005. Genre: erotic contemporary romance.

Oops. Didn't realize I had already read this, in the anthology that it's in. Still, a good story. Could have been longer.
