OrangeReviewStarEver since her experience with a home intruder last year, Dreama Agosto has slowly been adjusting to her new normal of limited mobility and severe nerve damage. Formerly a submissive who delighted in experiencing pain, she lost the urge once chronic pain, and a phobia of men touching her, became part of her life. When she returns to her job as a parole officer, she is shocked to find that desire rekindled by Cash Turner, the burly, recently released prisoner who is also her parolee. Cash doesn't feel he deserves any affection since his drunk driving led to the deaths of his wife and unborn child ten years ago, but his inner Dom reemerges every time Dreama is near. As the pair awaken their dormant D/s appetites with each other, secrets come to light that Cash's case might not have been drunk driving after all. But as Dreama investigates and gets closer to the truth, she gets nearer to mortal danger as well. Action-packed and enthralling prose shapes an unnerving murder mystery alongside a kinky (and somewhat taboo) romance in this latest from Bell (At His Mercy). Cash's conventional masculinity is refreshingly tempered by his tenderness for animals, while Dreama's navigation of sex, love, and life with chronic pain is a much-needed representation in the erotic romance genre.
VERDICT A perfect blend of kink, sweetness, and intrigue. Highly recommended.
