Book 7 in the Nature of Desire series.Chloe has always been a creature of joy and laughter. Since a brutal attack nearly a year ago, the trauma she experienced has gotten worse. She has started hiding from her life, even putting up walls between herself and those she cares about most. During a panic attack one night, she impulsively calls a number that she's had for many months. Chloe met Brendan at her boss's wedding. With confidence and seduction, he easily steps into the role of helping her manage her fear. By the end of the long call, they've indulged in some serious flirtation and mind-blowing phone sex-and she's feeling things she's buried for too long.The problem is that Brendan is the perfect male submissive-and Chloe isn't wired for the D/s lifestyle. While their attraction is undeniable, Chloe doesn't know if she can be everything Brendan needs. As a submissive, Brendan would never ask her to be something she's not-even if it will break both of their hearts to turn away from how they feel about each other. Reader Advisory: Contains very light female/female sensuality and a brief ménage encounter.

As the seventh and last book in the Nature of Desire series, this is a more psychological than physical portrayal of BDSM, and no one tackles the emotion behind it better than Joey Hill. The story does a brilliant job at expressing the multiple facets and complexity of the lifestyle, as misunderstoo...
"When two people want each other to be happy so much they're willing to break their own heart to let the other go, it's kismet. Two idiots canceling one another out."Love that one!And... yep, review to come.
I'd give this 2.5 stars if possible so rounded it up to 3. I liked the characters of both Chloe and Brendan when I ran into them in the Ice Queen/Mirror of my Soul duo and I still liked them in this book but they were different. In this book, I had a hard time connecting with Chloe and the charact...
