The Love Story: Ash has a job as a cleaning woman at the Halcyon Building that is owned by the Constantine’s and house their corporate offices. Ash is working as a cleaning lady because her father spent her college fund on his new wife. Winston makes Ash an offer she can’t refuse.
There were things about this story I didn’t like. I knew going in that Winston likes darkness and I know that there are many people in the BDSM lifestyle that get off on erotic humiliation, but some of the things Winston liked were not erotic. He just liked to see Ash embarrassed. I don’t get it. I mean he made her wear high heels that were very high when she couldn’t walk in heels, because he wanted to see her stumbling and falling in public. Not that I get why people like erotic humiliation (like being called names, treated as pets, etc..). I never got that either, but I know it is a thing.
Aside from that, I really liked this book. I liked that Win and Ash were into some kinky things. I liked that despite thinking Winston was a bit of a perv, Ash was into the kink. Though she did have conflicting feelings, they were more about the fact that she liked the things Win did to her or had her do and not that she was feeling forced or anything like that. I also really loved the storyline and I wish it wasn’t a cliffhanger. Now I can’t wait for the next book.
