My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
Susannah is an FBI agent who on her first assignment has been working on a serious sex trafficking case where she is close to taking down a very dangerous operation. Betrayal from within the organization has put her in a position where someone she cares deeply about her has been taken forced to serve as a sex slave for the leader of the trafficking operation. Nearly a year later, Susannah with help from some powerful friends is able to rescue and reunite with the person she loves only to wonder whether he can be brought back from the trauma and depravation he has experienced. Also, the traffickers they rescued him from are out for serious revenge.
This book was easy to read straight through. It is an odd combination of really dark and really "fluffy", but the back and forth between good and evil made for an interesting read. I liked that the author(s) made a pretty clear distinction between consensual D/s arrangements, and sexual slavery and rape. These characters suffered situations that i think few would be able to survive. Seeing their strong sense of friendship and family help pull them through was really endearing. Susannah is a character who is easy to empathize with even as she struggles with a lot of tough issues. Jasper is pretty amazing, and I really liked seeing all the different dynamics of the various situations and relationships he went through. The different sexual dynamics of all the main characters provided a happy tone even after some really disturbing situations. Dante, Travis, Malachi, and Megan each brought something different to their own relationships and the group.
In addition to the relationship story lines, there was a lot of mystery, action, and suspense in this book that added a lot to the story and kept things moving forward. I pretty much read this straight through once I started, and would not hesitate to read more by this author(s) in the future.
