I was impressed with this novel. L. M. Roberts took a sensitive subject , one of the need for pain to gain pleasure, and brought it in the open for all to see while removing the stigma that goes with it. Too often many confuse or perceive abuse when consent is and should always be present in any BDSM (and consequently any type ) relationship , which is what's at the forefront of these types of stories -Trust.
This may have been a short read, but L. M. Roberts talks about all the issues that is involved with debilitating experiences and how they can affect you both emotionally and physically. We're shown just how much a person can endure before they crack , just how far they'll go to be whole again and just how difficult it is to start over and learn once again how to trust. This story touched me in so many ways, both from personal experiences and those l've heard from close friends. It was emotional, nerve racking and so very much that train ride of emo that I was gasping for all sorts of reasons that I couldn't wait to find out just how this story will end. Considering just how much I liked this story I highly doubt it'll be my last from this author from now on.
