A woman unable to connect, struggling to hide another part of her. A man burning to learn her truth, and make her whole. Through explosive passion and deep exploration, they are about to take the greatest risk of all. But will they be able to take that leap, and come out on the other side together?
In this next passionate novel in the Honey series, New York Times bestselling author Kristen Ashley delivers a stunningly romantic and intensely sexy novel that will stay with you long after you turn the final page.
I was provided a review copy; this did not influence my opinion of the book.
❝The sensitive soul and the superhero both had stepped out of the shadow.❞
Mistress Sixx had grown skilled at keeping her emotions tightly locked up. She was detached during her scenes at the Honey, she didn’t have friendships or love interests. Sixx lived in a small, empty, run-down apartment, making it easy to up and leave when she needed.
For the past several years she’s had her eye on one man. One man she knew was out of her league and off limits. And that was the greatest risk for Mistress Sixx, giving her heart to someone, even if that someone was Stellan.
❝Stellan finds the one that’s worth it, he’ll break his back, sell his soul, work his fingers to the bone to win her and keep her.❞
Stellan was living his life trying not to be like his father. He was a very successful businessman. As a Dom, he spent a lot of time at the Honey. He’d spent years watching and waiting for the right time for him and Sixx. When that time came, he went all-in.
❝I want to be your lover. I want to be your Master. I want to know all your secrets. I want to unravel the mystery that’s you and then help you keep it safe. I want you, and the way I want you is beside me, in bed, in play and in life.❞
You guys, I am so torn! I started out LOVING this book! It was a solid 4 (and that was only because some of the scenes and subject matter were not my cuppa). I loved the romance between Stellan and Sixx! I loved the demons they faced and how they did so at each other’s sides! Sixx was IT for Stellan and he did everything in his power to prove to her he was IT for her too! It was beautiful, romantic and healing. Gah, then 80% mark hit and everything I had loved about this powerful story vanished! The story became centered around a Sixx’s investigation and an MMF trio. Because I understood the reason for the investigation and its importance to Sixx’s character, I kept reading, hoping for Stellan and Sixx to become the focus again. While the story does return to them, the chemistry and “feeling” changed for me.
This was still a beautiful story despite my frustration with the ending. I definitely recommend it to BDSM, MM, MMF and Kristen Ashley fans!
