love Now I don t live a BDSM lifestyle but I do love reading about it So in my head I have a list of what my hard limits would be The specific kink in this book was on that list until I read this book Maren does a phenomenal job to describing this kink was such respect and dignity The way she describes Hannah s fascination and the complexity of the enjoyment of this specific kink through her different senses was incredible to read and so well written I appreciate a book that can pull me out of my comfort zone but not to the point where it pulls me out of the story I appreciate the risk that Maren takes in writing this particular story It is definitely a great hook to what I imagine is a wonderful series What the hell did I just readI fell down the dark, kink rabbit hole with this book It was everything and nothing that I expected Let me explain When I read the blurb, I just knew that I had to read this book It has been awhile since I have read a kink romance novel, and I loved the concept of this book I mean, two Doms trying to open a BDSM resort castle need I say any Yeah, well I m going to anyway.Unfortunately, the blurb is pretty much the whole novella I am going to spoil What the hell did I just readI fell down the dark, kink rabbit hole with this book It was everything and nothing that I expected Let me explain When I read the blurb, I just knew that I had to

Hannah is a cutter And while she doesn t self harm to harm herself, she does it because that is her kink She doesn t realize it because everyone around her thinks she is sick However, Master Sam knows how to help Hannah And it was actually pretty intriguing The weirdest part of this whole book It s a romance novel without sex Yep, you read that right While there are some sexy dominating times, they never do the deed It actually leaves me pretty puzzled The author builds and builds on this blood kink, but we never get to see Master Sam bring that kink to life for Hannah I am disappointed because I was curious I wanted to see how this whole kink works, but the author leaves me hanging Not coolI can t say that I recommend this book, but I think I will continue the series Something tells me the castle holdsinteresting stories wink SoI knew this was going to be short I knew it was the prequel to the start of the series I didn t know that the character and plot development were going to be so skimpy, and that it would be a lot edgier than I expected.Smith does a creditable job of bringing you into the story, meeting the characters, and setting up the conflict, but after that it wobbles around a lot After meeting Hannah, we learn that this girl has major, major issues, and it s really too complex of a problem to be han SoI knew this was going to be short I knew it was the prequel to

complex of a problem to be handled in such a short story.I was eager to see how Sam would handle his interest in Hannah after learning about her problems, but I felt that Smith never adequately wrapped that up I had a WTF moment or two trying to figure out what how Sam would try to help her, but I can t tell if he ever did Also, the villian in the story seemsof a jerk than a real threat the real story is about Hannah, but you re left hanging without any resolution.It was almost 3 stars Hannah sounds like a potentially compelling heroine, but I never learned enough about her or how she and Sam would team up to help her overcome her demons Well, this wasdifferent.A story about BDSM in which no actual sex takes place In many ways, the majority of this novella was all build up to something that the reader doesn t even get to experience The actual event happens off camera as it were and is mentioned briefly before the story is very quickly wrapped up I have to say, up until the last 10 or so pages, i was enthralled by this story I loved how dark and edgy it felt and how it depicted a version of BDSM that was not as watered Well, this wasdifferent.A story about BDSM in which
