Why oh why can I not give half stars?! This is my first book by this author, and my first book in the series. I do not feel like I missed out on anything from not reading the others as it is written as a standalone. This book is based on Prince Roman and Cheri the woman he has been betrothed to since they were little.

When the time comes for Roman to claim Cheri he pulls out all the punches to make sure she comes back to him. They have off the charts chemistry and a past that you will find out about. Once Cheri is back where she belongs that is where things begin. As the blurb states she will need to submit like she has never done before. This book is unlike any I have ever read. You will understand what I am saying when you read it for yourself. Taboo really doesn’t bother me, but I guess reading and imagining some of the things had my mind going in different directions.

The only thing I really didn’t like is I felt like the story was rushed. There were parts I was expecting more. Especially when she was submitting and the things she needed to go through to prove her loyalty.
