"In her sensational Breathless Trilogy, #1 New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks tested the boundaries of desire. In her new trilogy, there's only one thing left to do: cross them. And never have the consequences of erotic exploration been so irresistibly inviting, so shockingly intimate, and so totally unexpected; Josslyn found perfection once, and she knows she'll never find it again. Now widowed, she seeks the one thing her beloved husband couldn't give her: dominance. Lonely, searching for an outlet for her grief and wanting only a brief taste of the perfection she once enjoyed, she seeks what she's looking for at an exclusive club that caters to people indulging in their most hedonistic fantasies.

Did not finish, got 50% of the way through and was bored out of my skull, back to the library it goes! ( )

Connection to the Sweet series. Dash starts off very alpha maile dominant and then seems to turn into an insecure, raging idiot. At 40% into the book they are still TALKING about getting started and some of her insecurities are repetitive. I really wanted to like this book, especiallly the brief peek at seeing Damon, Serena, Ren and her men, I'm hoping the next book is better.

Letting Go
1 Star

As a fan of Maya Banks's romantic suspense and historical romance series, this book seemed a natural choice when I needed a BDSM book for a challenge. Let me preface this review with the disclaimer that BDSM is not a preferred genre, and as such my comments will more than likely not be in line with the many readers who enjoy this genre immensely.

As it turns out, the BDSM elements are not the reason for this one star review. Rather the writing, characters and story are so weak as to completely undermine whatever message the writer is trying to impart.

Banks spends an inordinate amount of page time attempting to convince the reader of the legitimacy of the BDSM sub-culture. This is completely unnecessary as consenting adults are entitled to their preferences; no one has the right to judge and those who enjoy the genre don't need to be convinced. The result is a tediously repetitive sequence of scenes in which the hero and heroine justify their choice of lifestyle.

Moreover, the characterization and plot also suffer as neither is sufficiently developed outside of the author's preoccupation with the characters dominant/submissive sexcapades. Regardless of the fact that I personally do not find anything remotely sexy or sensual about a relationship in which the woman is completely subjugated, neither Joss nor Dash are particularly interesting as individuals and their emotional attachment is unbelievable. The conflict that pops up at the end has potential and should have been the focus throughout the story, but ultimately falls flat because by that point who cares?

In sum, to put it simply this book is badly written with tepid characters, mechanical sex scenes and no plot to speak of. ( )

DESCRIPTION, NOT REVIEW: Josslyn found perfection once, and she knows she’ll never find it again. Now widowed, she seeks the one thing her beloved husband couldn’t give her: dominance. Lonely, searching for an outlet for her grief and wanting only a brief taste of the perfection she once enjoyed, she seeks what she’s looking for at an exclusive club that caters to people indulging in their most hedonistic fantasies. She never imagined that what she’d find would be the one man who’s long been a source of comfort—and secret longing. Her husband’s best friend.

Dash has lived in an untenable position for years: in love with his best friend’s wife but unwilling to act on that attraction. He’d never betray his best friend. And so he’s waited in the wings, offering Joss unconditional support and comfort as she works past her grief, hoping for the day when he can offer her more.

When he finds her in a club devoted to the darker edges of desire, he’s furious because he thinks she has no idea what she’s getting herself into. Until she explains in detail what it is she wants. What she needs. As realization sets in, he is gripped by fierce, unwavering determination. If she wants dominance, he is the only man who will introduce her to that world. He is the only man who will touch her, cherish her…love her. And the only man she’ll ever submit to. ( )

I think I was more emotionally invested in this book. I gave it 3 stars because it follows the same generally plot as her others as well as Day's and James' work but I liked that the widow aspect and I can already see where the next two in the series are headed.

What I did like is that it was slightly heavier than the breathless series.

If anything ever happens to me, man, I want you to promise me. Promise me that you'll be there for Joss. I know you love her. If there ever comes a day that I can't be there for her, I want you to promise me that you'll take care of here and love her like I do.
