BBW Clarissa Alexander isn't exactly the model daughter her rich parents want. She's loud, independent and always willing to show off her new tattoos. They're hoping the husband they've selected for her will help straighten her out.
But Clarissa has no intention of marrying the man her parents have chosen. She wants someone fun to play with. Someone like Maddox Perry, casino owner and absolutely gorgeous Dom. When Clarissa makes a play for Maddox she isn't just trying to tick off her parents: this time she's truly attracted.
After getting a taste of Clarissa, Maddox knows he's found the perfect sub for him. The only problem is Clarissa doesn't want to be tied down, permanently that is. He just has to teach her that the temperatures aren't the only thing smoldering in the Nevada desert. And surrendering to her submissive desires will give her more freedom than she ever thought possible.
I’ve decided that BDSM is difficult genre to write, as there is a fine line between kinky and creepy. And it is possible to be both.
The sex is hot, of that there is no doubt. And the story holds nothing back, if you are looking for a BDSM heavy story, this is definitely it.
However, what ruins this story for me is the pacing. Clarissa confesses to having no BDSM experience, yet within days of meeting Maddox, she lets him drive her out into the middle of nowhere, where they dive into what can only be called a full-fledge lifestyle. It leaves the relationship feeling more like Stockholms Syndrome.
Overall, this is a decent story and I would recommend it for anyone looking for something BDSM heavy.
