Book 1 Written in 1st person from both his and her perspective. Warning: Written for mature audiences. Contains profanity, graphic sexual encounters and mild BDSM themes. Romantic, erotic, deeply emotional and humorous. Isabel is a shy artist with an abusive past who has a very vivid fantasy life and unexplored unusual sexual tastes. When her very private and naughty-natured artwork is sold without her permission, she sets out to try and retrieve her precious paintings, unaware that the buyer has dark sexual tendencies. Dylan is an eccentric businessman and art collector with very specific tastes in women and sex, and serious trust issues. When he comes upon a very erotic set of paintings, he purchases them and they ignite a want and need for the alternative lifestyle he was forced to give up. When the two meet, Dylan immediately picks up on Isabel's submissive nature and hatches a wicked plan to teach Isabel about his alternative lifestyle. He wants nothing more than to get his hands on more of her paintings and to dominate the submissive beauty. Their affair is intensely physical and despite Dylan's wanting only a sexual relationship with distinct boundaries, he can't resist Isabel's spirited nature, her eagerness and lack of fear to learn BDSM, and most especially - her immense talent. But Isabel has a hidden dominant streak that only Dylan brings out and as they're drawn closer together, their unconventional relationship is threatened as they each struggle with their pasts and for control.

I'm pretty sure that the copy I have is an old unedited version. Anyway:What I liked:the humour Isa brought to the Dom/Sub situationsWhat I didn't like:the whole hair twirling thing drove me crazyneither of the MCs acted like mature adults-they pouted & fussed like teenagersdual POVs which told you ...
It *is* better written than FSoG on the prose level, so that's why it earned itself 1 star on top of FSoG.Else this is just another plagiarism of The Book Which Shall Not Be Named. In fact down to little idiosyncrasies, the state of utter immaturity of the MCs, the tics and spleens. Everything and e...
1.5 stars. I just don't know this book didn't hook me. I'm not sure if Dominguez is a new author, but the writing was a bit unpracticed. There was WAY too much detail about the monotonous. The story is quite long, but it doesn't really go anywhere for most of the book. There is certainly a story her...
