MindAfter the plane's nose dive into the remote rainforest forces them to fight for survival Abbie catches tantalizing glimpses of the complicated man behind the image And the she sees of him the he touches some primal part of her that she is determined to suppress But after a devastating encounter with Winter's shadow side Abbie's detachment is shatteredOn returning to normal life Abbie cannot forget what happened nor ignore ARC from Penguin Ireland via Net Galley for reviewAs soon as I read that the leading man in this story was an Irishman I knew he would be minefor a few hours anyways What I didn't expect was to read a book with a great little plot and wonderful supporting secondary characters This turned out to be a great little surprise The book starts with journalist Abbie running from some drug lord's thugs and jumping onto the plane of a Hollywood A list star Jack the Hollywood Hottie and Abbie immediately smolder with sexual tension and then proceed to just piss each other off for the next fifty pages Well we all know where sexual tension and anger lead to especially when one of the grumpies is a practicing Dom Big cliche' here but eh pppfffftwhat do you do? Not only is Jack a Dominant but he sees the potential for Abbie to be a little submissive Of course the outspoken and intelligent woman does NOT see herself in that sort of role so it takes a bit of convincing I'm wondering how often this happensDom meets woman wants her body bent over his knee and proceeds to form her into his perfect subFrom a trek through a vast jungle wilderness to the concrete jungles of NYC and LA to the gorgeous fairy tale of Ireland I was in love with the scenery The story never got stagnant because it was always moving to a new location and the plot itself was always moving forwardAbbie was a great heroinebelievable in her ignorance of the Ds lifestyle only because she didn't seem stupid about it She knew what it was but felt it a bit demeaning It takes Jack showing her that his paddles and bondage are a way for them both to open up and be completely honest with each other Jack is a bit of a tortured soul himself and doesn't necessarily practice what he preaches which causes some major roadblocks to pop up between he and Abbie While I really enjoyed the book I thought that the BDSM aspect was way too light for this to really be touted as that type of novel The threat for punishment and hard core kink was always simmering but Jack never delivers and I was disappointed This was VERY light bondage and a ton of spankingpaddling etc Another thing that bothered me were a couple of minor plot holesthings that the author sort of threw in late in the book that sort of came out of the blue and were never fully explained Nothing major but it did create a little hiccup for meI was headed for a three star but after finishing and contemplating it for a bit I realize that I enjoyed the story enough for a four I kept wanting to read without getting bored and at the end I really was rooting for Abbie and Jack Let's hope he puts his weenie Dom foot down some in the future

The Pleasures of WinterThe shocking rumours about the star's private life Her struggle to make sense of her torment leads straight back to Winter who is just as obsessed by her But if they are to have a relationship Abbie knows she must embrace his hidden desires and accept her ownNo longer caring about anything but their intoxicating love affair Abbie is drawn deeper into the dark heart of Winter and the secret that threatens to destroy everything I was offered a copy of this book through Net Galley So I signed up for Net Galley to get this book Feel special Evie Hunter This book was marketed using the comment If you liked 50 Shades Ugh I have not read 50 Shades and so this tells me NOTHING Promotion peoplefor all booksplease stop using itBut once I got past that I have to say I REALLY enjoyed this book It was mid grade on the heat and kink scale for me So those who want romance and angst will LOVE this book I am not an outdoorsy gal And the way this book was written I was dreaming of going out and eating grubs just so I can get spanked in a cave There are some BDSM scenes but nothing in here really pushed me so I don't have any triggers to listThe major break up issue was resolved a bit to easy to be realistic but it made the book an easy very enjoyable read The heroine kept thinking about her situation in news headlines and I thought it was a cute touchSome of the things in this book that made me pause were how uickly our heroine went from being completely Vanilla to beat me with a cane submissive She also IMO hadn't really consented to her first punishment Our couple gets pretty personal while our heroine is still engaged to another man Not cool And our hero left the room while his sub was tied up Isn't that a big no no? A big case of insta love going on as well By now you are probably thinkingwhy the hell is this book 4 stars?? Because I could not put it down I enjoyed reading it Despite things that I had to accept or go with the flow this book held my attention and had me dying to jump back into it I think this book had a strong classic romance style The story arc was well laid out and the words just took me along for a rideI fell in love with our couple and wanted for them to have happy slappy sex together forever It made me smile and made me happy to read it I would pick up another book by this author in a heartbeat Great voice The cover might seem to be styled to imitate a certain best seller as well but now that I have read it the floating feather makes me smile Recommend highly to romance lovers who want a little kink thrown in Spanking enthusiasts and people who enjoy a couple thrown together in extreme circumstances will also enjoy this one
