In the beginning, I thought I would be reading a familiar story with a storyline I've read before.
That didn't happen.
The beginning of the book was different from what i expected and that went on for the rest of the book.
We are guided from Henry's point of view as to what is happening, what has to be done and what the possible outcome can be.
What felt kinda strange to me was the way Henry was talking, the words he was using, his expression in general. It can be attributed on his job, though some times I felt like he was older than what was said in the book.
Another thing that surprised me was the character's closeness, without actual sex happening. It shows how deep a relationship can go, even with mutual acts of trust!
It also has me wondering of The story between Victor and Emma, which I would love to read as well.
I think that all M/M lovers should buy this book, even if it's to see a different perspective in BDSM.
Needless to say, I've already added the rest of the books from this author in my tbr, very close to the top!!!!
I was given an advanced copy, through netgalley, from the editor, in exchange of my honest opinion.
