really liked it
bookshelves: bdsm, m-m-romance, erotica, shapeshifters
Read in April, 2009

Pros: Oh, originality, by far. The use of a golem as a romantic love interest? A+! Khalid is such an interesting individual, and the writing is done so well that even the minor characters grab you (I would truly love to see a tale revolving around Gray and Douglas). Few editing issues, a solid narrative, and killer characters. The sex was intense, the action kept up, and action is quite difficult to do well. There was a solid plot that was seen through to the end, and it resolved well. The personal, romantic relationship evolved at a good pace, and it didn't feel too rushed. Also, the author's understanding and use of wolf pack hierarchy was excellent.

Cons: The BDSM was off. It was more of a TPE (for those who don't know, that's a Total Power Exchange). While a TPE is a BDSM practice, it is also an extreme one that not many can deal with. I also have to say, it irked me when Khalid told Ian he had to earn the right to aftercare. In the BDSM world, aftercare is an essential aspect of a scene and is never withheld as something to be earned. It is so important. It's when the top receives the feedback of the bottom, and the bottom is reassured that their feedback is necessary and encouraged.
