Not everything is obvious

She clutches at control to cover her flaws.

He wants to strip her are because she's beautiful.

Selina Moss hides a secret beneath her controlled happy exterior.  Her body is covered in scars and she's never revealed them to anyone.  She's not beautiful and she doesn't want pity.

However, it's her wedding night ad husband, Benjamin Moss, is determined to strip down her barriers.

Benjamin is not playing fair, not when he's deploying breath-stealing seduction as well as mind-melting sex toys.  But will he still want her when she bares all?

Not sure of the point of this book.  That said I did read this book in its entirety.

This was a very short novella (at under 50 pages) surely a novella should be more than just 50 pages.  It would have been far better if the author had released all the books as just the one.  However, releasing these novellas as three pieces is a ploy by the publishers to ensure readers purchase all three novellas at a rather inflated price. 

There are so many questions left unanswered.  The characters were ill defined and lacked further development.  The back story was fleeting making it difficult to feel any empathy for either character and frankly the female was annoying beyond belief. 

The relationship of the two characters is not quite the normal, traditional relationship and whatever relationship they have was not the subject of this novella.  In short there is not really enough to keep the reader’s interest or to really tether the sexual encounters to. 

I am not against books with BDSM themes but this book did not really hold my interest enough and I will certainly NOT be reading any more of this series.  In fact I was annoyed that I had wasted precious time reading this one.

Full Disclosure: ARC received from Netgalley for an honest review.

I rated this book 2 stars on Netgalley and 'It was ok' Amazon (3 stars) and Goodreads (2 stars).
