#BookReview - The Gate by KT Grant


Tags: Erotica, BDSM
Blurb
A chance encounter between a successful author and a billionaire owner of an underground BDSM club, leads to the most pivotal relationship of their lives…

Erika Walsh has carried a torch for Christopher Milton, heir to her father’s publishing empire for years. After one steamy make out session she begins to wonder if it might develop into something more. But when M. L. Crawford, better known as Max, her father’s publishing rival, seeks her out at a society event, she’s drawn to his magnetic charisma and powerful demeanor. Their verbal bantering and innuendo laced overtones stir feelings she never knew existed, and soon Erika is consumed with knowing the real man under Max’s restrained public façade.

Erika’s sweet nature and naivety excites Max to near madness. He wants to train her in the art of seduction and make her succumb to his every wish and command…as his perfect submissive. Yet, Christopher is determined to keep Erika from becoming the latest victim of Max’s sinister sexual hungers. He knows all too well what Max hides in his black soul and will stop at nothing to reveal all of Max’s secrets in order to protect the one thing he holds dear above all else- Erika.

Max’s dark desires scare yet arouse Erika, as he opens her eyes to a new bold world full of passion and ecstasy she never imagined until him. But the biggest question remains: Is Erika’s craving for Max just an illusion that transpires behind the walls of The Gate?

Maya's Review
This story had potential. Despite a slow start, the story picked up in the middle with the introduction of Catherine and the subplot surrounding her. It was obvious that this author was a fan of The Original Sinners series by Tiffany Reisz.

However just when things started getting interesting, some things happened that made me want to chuck my eReader at the wall and that's never a good thing.

First, Erika was nearly raped by Chris, a man she trusted. As if that wasn't bad enough, Maxwell punishes her for almost getting raped. Seriously, how sick are these people?

To top it off, Erika's father dies and the two men turn up at the hospital, on the same day and nearly fight each other as they squabble over who has possession of Erika with no respect for the dead or the woman who has lost her father.

And if you think that's the worst thing, hang on for the kicker. Erika decides it's a good idea (after being persuaded by Catherine) to turn up at the BDSM club and do a sex scene in public. I would've bought it if she'd done it as part of her grieving process. But no, her only incentive was to prove to Max that he couldn't control her. Meanwhile, her father's cold body was still unburied and laying on a slab in the morgue. As I asked before, how sick are these people?

Any wisp of a connection I had with Erika before was totally severed after that point. I couldn't care less about her. In fact I think the best thing she did was walk away at the end of this book and if she had any sense, she'd stay away from both men. But according to the blurb of book 2 of the series, she didn't.

This is my first time of reading this author and she has an interesting writing style. While I'll be happy to read other books by this author, I won't be reading any more from this series.
