” I have been fascinated with Brianna’s story from the start…” ~Under The Covers

It has been quite a journey for Brianna. After Stephan had rescued her from sex slavery and helping her heal, it is in this book that you truly see Brianna’s progress. She had transitioned from being helpless to making decisions on her own. If you’ve read Slave and Need, you know her past had truly broken this young girl physically and mentally. While my heart broke for her then, it is now empowered and cheering her on to finally live her life.

Stephan on the other hand, well, I think he’s experiencing quite the opposite. Being a twenty-four year old billionaire and a dom, he’s found himself in an unfamiliar situation. He has fallen and has lost control of the situation around him. If you remember at the end of the last book, Brianna’s father is back in her life causing chaos. Poor Stephan is out of sorts trying to do his best to protect Brianna. But by the end of this book it will be Brianna trying to protect Stephan. There seems to be a role switch coming on , and I’m betting Brianna will end up stronger than Stephan in the end.

Yes, it is not over yet. The additional installment of this series was definitely a surprise. It is bitter sweet that we don’t get the happy-ever-after as expected , but it only means we get more of Brianna and Stephan’s story. I have to say though that this book is not for the faint of heart. It does contain steamy sex scenes, including leashing and bondage. The story did lack the nail-biting element that we usually see in Ms. Hayes’ books , but it didn’t prevent me from fully enjoying this novel. In fact, I have been fascinated with Brianna’s story from the start making me emotionally invested in the series.

I am excited to get to the next and final installment of this series. And I have no doubt that it will be a well deserved happy ending for Brianna and Stephan.
