My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Particulars: Erotic Contemporary Romance , Smashwords, available as e-book,
Why was it in my TBR? I read about it at Shiloh Walker’s blog, and the blurb snagged me.
Two years after a brutal tragedy, Tania is taking her life and her fantasies back. All of them. Drake Bennett has wanted Tania for years. Wanted her, watched her, knowing he’d never have her. Now he has a chance, but that chance comes with some strings attached. There’s also a good possibility he’ll get his heart broken.
Warning: This book involves light bondage play, rape fantasy & role-playing. The acts between the hero & heroine are consensual, but they may not be ideal for all readers.
I have started this review twice. Why? Because I am having trouble finding words describing the book, yet I feel I cannot skip this review.
This is a dark book, filled with twisted memories. Yet at the same time, it feels hopeful. If there is a theme in this book to trust the world again.
Shiloh Walker is a talented author, that manage to make each word, every sentence count. That combined with the tension between Drake and Tania created a read that I couldn’t put down.
The plot isn’t the important part. No, the important part are the relationship between the characters. Both of them struggle, Tania with her past. Drake struggles with his feelings for her, the anger he feels against the thought of her getting hurt.
