Thank you sis Pearl for recommending this book! (Click her name to read her awesome review,)

Adam Steinbeck and Diana Barnes – Steinbeck’s relationship is intense and sexy at its finest. They’ve been married for years and came to a point something is off in their relationship. One day, Adam received a message from his wife demanding for a divorce. She felt he’s a closed book and wasn’t being himself. Later on, she found out he’s into BDSM and was a Dominant. He’s a protective man who doesn’t want to expose his wife to this kind of nature. He loves her but he’s afraid unleashing his dominance that might break her and settles on vanilla / safe side. Letting her go is the last thing he wants so he made a deal.

For 30 days, they’ll explore his true world. He as a Dom and she’ll get to learn how to be a Sub. After this, divorce will be final and she’ll get the full ownership the Publishing company they co-owned. Will it be the end of their marriage or a new beginning?

Why did it end like this?! I’m on the HIGHLIGHT and there goes the cliffhanger. [Good thing the sequel/final book is out. STILL — CLIFFHANGER..POOF]. There are many reasons to like this book as C.D. Reiss intricately explores BDSM and how deepens the romance between partners. I love this is told in dual perspective to understand both characters’ insights. The characters are complex, strong and well developed. Also this book greatly emphasized the importance of consent. Adam and Diana openly communicated about their desires and come up to a mutual understanding. Adam exhibits patience and I love he doesn’t push Diana on doing something she didn’t want unless she says so. I love Diana for trusting and giving him a chance. The intimate scenes are absolutely hot. It’s swoon-worthy and Adam is just… *heart eyes*. I really enjoyed this book and I’m definitely going to read the next book.
