One of the best BDSM novels I have ever read! Ember is a woman seeking to discover "more" in her sexual relationship and is trying sex games as the means. But being accidentally locked in her boyfriend's truck tool box when his truck is towed brings her "game" to a halt and her into another context, one where she will discover more about herself and learn to trust in a way she never thought possible. It is a novel which embodies the truth that becoming a captive can often be the best road to freedom. The paradox in this novel is that Lucas, a repro man and Dom, has to learn to give up as well--not in the BDSM sense, but by allowing Ember into areas of his heart he has held apart from anyone for years. He is challenged by his brother's perpetual adolescence and as he learns about himself, sees Ember growing and maturing in her relationship with herself and with Lucas, he can begin to have a healthy relationship with Matthew on a level never before possible. This is a very emotional novel and one that is not always easy to read. But like all complicated stories, it is one that will challenge the preconceived ideas of the reader as well as engage the mind and heart. There are some really overt BDSM scenes in the book and those who are offended by these need to be aware. But the underlying sensitivity of Lucas as a person is always present and his initial care of Ember when he discovers her in the truck are heart-warming. Her boyfriend--well, that's another horse of a different color. What is his first concern? Ember? Well, suffice it to say that his true nature and priorities are revealed. It is a wonderful piece of romance fiction and one that is both on my favorites list as well as "to be read again" list.
