This was a quick read, or maybe it just felt that way as I was immediately engaged in the story. I was annoyed by the awful first date (haven't we all been there?) and then very invested in the story after Nessa's traumatic event happens.
Nessa and Ronan have known one another for a while, and have flirted with one another, and then the dynamic of their relationship and the way Nessa relates to almost everyone changes. Being with her for the event was really interesting and I think it made me feel an immediate connection with the character that made me feel like I had read an entire book with her and not a few pages.
I was also really invested in the development of her relationship with Ronan and I loved the way the Phoenix club was introduced as a way for her to feel in control after that control was taken from her, and I also really loved that. It's a new way to represent the attraction to the BDSM world, and the reason for the involvement couldn't have been more compelling.
I was sad to see this one end.
I enjoyed and recommend this title.
