An excellent read! I feel like this book offers a lot -
not only does it dive deeply into the minds and emotions of the main
characters, it offers a fairly strong heat level, great
sex scenes, and twists and turns that made me wonder how
this was going to end. Denise and Spencer have great
interpersonal interaction, and they sound like real
people, which you don't always get in these kinds of
books. It also offers a realistic look at a BDSM relationship,
which I found refreshing. BUY
I found this book just a bit slow at the beginning but that did change. There was a lot of technical information about astronomy, but given Stephanie has her doctorate in that field and is a professor at the college I guess it was somewhat necessary.
Hunter on the other hand is a technical writer in finance. He has a couple of hobbies a Hockey league for one, fishing and astronomy. A public event at the observatory is how he meets Stephanie.
I really liked the way the relationship developed with unique dates over the course of a few weeks. The way Hunter is reluctant to reveal his kink and how Stephanie handles it was fun and sensual.
There is a twist that took me totally by surprise. One that I wasn't sure how it could possible be resolved.
I laughed, held my breath and bit my nails a bit. I also learned a lot about astronomy, not something I expect in a romance novel.
I did find a couple of editing errors but not ones big enough to pop me out of the story.
