Review by Wisteria
Victoria Robeson is content to live at home and work her dead-end job, despite dealing with her overbearing mother, just as long as she has time to write. When she meets the handsome and mysterious Alton Weiss as Dareville prepares for Brady Garriston's big concert, Vic is unnerved and intrigued by how well he knows her personality and desires.
Alton introduces her to a world of sensuality and submission, encouraging her to become a new woman. But is Alton merely a weekend distraction, or the promise of a better life?
Victoria is small-town-typical. She goes to work, keeps her head down, and does what everyone expects her to do. It’s amazing what she discovers about herself when sexy California guy, Alton, comes to town and gives her the opportunity to be his submissive.
HOLY COW!!!!!! I think I have just found a new series that I must read! The characters were great! Each one added something to the story, unlike some stories that have extras just to fill space, I truly felt connected to the secondary characters even if for a split second they appeared in the story. I find myself wanting to know more. More about the characters and the town! Filled with totally hot titillation, Smokin’ sexual tension, and just enough action to get ‘er done, I was captivated and engrossed to the point of shooing away anyone who might interrupt me during my reading.
Clean editing, a sound story idea and plot made this a fantastic read for a short vacation from the real world. No doubt a deal sealer when it comes to whether I will buy more from this author. It is not very often I finish a book and immediately clamor for more, but this in one of those times. Thank you Ms. Ellwood, from the bottom of my heart.
