How far is too far?
Finally sure of each other's strength and love, Jonah and Vivienne continue to explore their darkest fantasies together. However, what should be a night of ecstasy takes a dangerous turn, injuring Vivienne. She shrugs off the incident, but Jonah is haunted by it, particularly by the fear that others may believe he abuses her, or even glimpse the truth of their erotic obsession.
Then Jonah receives a call from his younger sister, Rebecca, who's dealing with trouble of her own in South America. When Vivienne travels with him to aid Rebecca, she learns yet more about his tortured history—and Jonah opens up to Vivienne as never before.
Can Vivienne help Jonah cast off the shadows of his past forever?
I am waiting for the author to really grab me again the way she did in the beginning of this series. The whole traumatized broken hero and heroine has gotten old and repetitive establishing issues that have already been established and repeated several times already.
Why this novella needed to be added to reestablish the same thing we've already read more than once didn't really feel organic to the flow or direction we were headed in the last book.
Pace had already begun a great story and I haven't felt the abuse background was even necessary to make this series great. If anything its taken away from what made it so good, but okay, I went with it. Now I'm waiting for the stall out that's been hanging on since the middle of the first book to find some sort of purpose.
We've beat this dead horse into the ground so many times I've stopped caring about their issues but the author has created something different and unique and I keep hoping for something to redeem or recapture what she had in the beginning.
I have mixed feelings for this short addition but I have to admit I'm still waiting.
