I did enjoy this read, but it was quite what I expected

I enjoyed it, but was just too....l how would I say...un realistic. I lost a baby at 18 weeks, it's always a chance at 11 weeks. I just think the reaction is too extreme. If a child, or actual baby had died then I could understand some of this reaction, but it's a bit extreme for a first miscarriage. Why didn't they just try again..why leave it to fester for two years?. If it was a cot death, ir the loss of a baby, I could imagine this extreme reaction, but not an early miscarriage.

I wasn't comfortable that he took her away without telling, or asking her if she wanted to try the BDSM bit again. BDSM is all about consensual, which the book frequently says, but is it consensual, if your told, I'll leave you unless you come with me, or try??... I'm not so sure. I felt at times that she had to go along with it, otherwise he would leave her. I know it was for the best and the only way he could get her to see this, but it didn't feel like he'd try talking first

I found the sex scenes out of context for the subject matter. If you're trying to save your marriage, would you realistically involve a third party?, I also found myself frustrated with how arguements or miss behaviour were dealt with.. no immediate was let's be quiet, then go for a walk in the woods...what the hell, no wonder they had issues!! When she blew up because he wouldn't collar her, he grabs her and kisses her, then they go for a walk????... God I wanted to throw this book at times. She had no trouble talking to a complete stranger about personal issues, yet never sat down and discussed with her husband...I found this frustrating at times.

I loved the fact that they loved each other soooo much and had the greatest respect for each other after a time, and could see and sympathies how relationships change, but going back isn't always a good thing. I liked some of the BDSM scenes, and I liked how we got a view from both main characters, so we could see both sides. I loved the writers writing style, and found it easy to loose myself in the book..become the characters. I just wanted more
