touches of BDSM this book is cool in comparison to other stories In my estimation this adds to the validity and realism of the characters I am still struggling with the flow of this story The author jumps back and forth between which character s point of view we are reading about too often Also I feel that sometimes the story jumps ahead to a new situation without warning The ending takes us past the ending of the first book Yes I did get what I was looking for This series is still in my estimation character development in its finest As a reader you get to know every aspect of these characters I felt their pain as well as their joy even so in this book There is a third book in this series thatas just been published It is about one of the characters that played an important part in Into the
