Wohoo I've been waiting for this book! Brand is better than Bind; Connor's book and Ms. Cartwright succeed deliver the BDSM wrapped in romance (or the opposite). It seems all the Donovans has alpha male streak? and *cough* BDSM lifestyle behind it. Well, well... who doesn't want a gentleman who has kink in the bedroom? :p


Cade Donovan is a 'bastard' or illegitimate son in Donovan family. Her mother isn't married to his father. Things are complicated since his father's death. Cade pulled himself off from the family and everyone's worried. When he came for Connor and Lara's wedding, he find himself attract to a certain woman. Sofia McBride is hard-working woman who own an EO business and life by her rules. She never think about romantic stuff or... sex. When Cade came with a proposition (related to her job, of course), she knew that he's a dangerous man for her heart.

Their sweet escape was really intense. There are so much things that Sofia learn from Cade esp. his BDSM lifestyle. Cade is a demanding Dom and quite hardcore (not as 'polite' as Connor). Sofia learns fast about everything that related to her erotic journey with Cade. I really liked how Cade explain about BDSM to Sofia patiently; from basic to the next level. When it comes to bedroom, Sofia is in Cade's rules. Their sexual attraction feels so real. The intensity, the chemistry, and trust between them which make it all worked. Outside bedroom, Cade is really a private person. He never open his feeling to Sofia and it frustrated her. Sofia opens everything about her. She want Cade but she couldn't enter inside him except he open the door for her.

I liked how Ms. Cartwright bring the story. From business partner to love couple. It was well-written, safe and detailed. I enjoyed the flow until the end. But, there is some issue that hold me to give 5 stars. I loved their romantic BDSM journey, but it's quite disappointing that I couldn't see Sofia's hard-work for the Donovan's event. And the ending seems a bit rushed. The time skip was somehow annoyed me because I wanna know more about their feeling towards each other outside their kinky lifestyle. Overall, Brand is an enjoyable read and nothing to be scared off with the BDSM scenes. An intoxicating story with beautiful and erotic journey. I would love to recommend this :D
