No one claims marriage is easy. That is especially true for Kayla Sutton, because she’s married to a sadist who takes the meaning of the word “dominance” to new heights. But Kayla should have known. She fell for his wicked ways after he blackmailed her, stayed after he kidnapped her, went back to him after he almost destroyed them both with his unpredictable fury.
Then she married him.
A year has passed since Kayla agreed to love, honor, and obey. Day after day, she survives his volatile nature. On her knees at his feet, underneath him between the sheets, bent over the bed to receive the fiery lash of his belt. But she’s beginning to miss the one thing she promised Gage Channing when she married him: her freedom.

I always get excited when Ms. James comes out with a new book or series. Her books just make me feel things that I never thought I could. Her books are so dark and gritty that you don't know if you'll love them or hate them. On my end, I absolutely love them, I love her style of writing and her books are just so mesmerizing and captivating.
I've read some pretty good BDSM books in the past but the story in this one just really grabbed me from the beginning to end. I couldn't phantom how a woman could tolerate a man being so cruel yet so loving at the same time. It confused the crap out of me that she had a perfectly good man waiting, caring and loving her the way a man should love a woman, yet she chooses the sadistic devil himself. But Kayla was all sorts of messed up and she loved the pain that Gage inflicted upon her. She loved to be tortured and she felt at times like she deserved to be punished and was looking forward to those punishments.
To me those beatings I could never handle very well and I give the women out there props for loving this lifestyle. I wouldn't allow a man to poke me with a finger let alone spank, flog or torture me the way these men do to their "slaves".
I was a little heartbroken and conflicted on Kayla's decision to stay with the devil himself but I saw her point in loving this man. She was just as messed up as he was and they both loved this lifestyle. He may be cruel at times but he had a loving side to him and there was nothing out there that he wouldn't do for his wife and their child. Even though he could be such a jerk most of the time, he did have a soft spot but that soft spot was for Kayla and Eve, her daughter. He loved Eve like if she were his daughter, and that was a scoring point for him on my end ;)
Again, I could not give Ms. James anything less than 5 stars for the conclusion to this beautiful, tortured and messed up love story (ha!)
