Alison Tyler is brilliant.
I'd like to leave my review at that, since it pretty much says it all—but this book needs more. Ms. Tyler's tales are traditionally dark, delicious, and deep, and her characters are always so rich they jump out and captivate you into coming along for the ride. This is exactly the case with Samantha as she discovers what really drives her, starting with her early days in BDSM and onward into her relationship with the incredibly sexy Jack. Somehow, Ms. Tyler sucks you right in, so that you can feel everything as raw and tantalizingly sweet as Sam does, both in her head and on her skin. This book is just plain delicious. Absolutely delicious.
Speaking of...I'll be starting The Delicious Torment
