Games, Publicity and Love.
The plot revolves around what happened to Ava because of her stepfather and the actions preceding the event. This was the main suspense that irritated me until the end. What happened to her was only revealed until the end. I am not a fan of drawn out suspense.
That being said the book then tells about Ava and her best friend getting into a competition named Power Games to win a lot of money. Power Game involves BDSM and having the scenes publicized live into the audience. What happened afterwards was well worth the bit of suspense that came.
When she gets paired up with Roman… the chemistry between them… **sigh**
I truly enjoyed the relationship, or lack thereof, between them at the start and watching the progression from there onward. This is an very erotic read, of course. And, I need to say that this book is very intense for a reader who is not that into BDSM or likes little of it in their stories.
But the writing with that progression from Ava and Roman being nothing to each other to being everything was truly amazing.
