It's not what you show, it's what you hide...
Grace Cantrell is a self-destructive exhibitionist uncomfortable in her own skin. Jason Wright is a fine-art photographer living life from behind his lens.
When Grace agrees to be the centerpiece for Jason's next gallery show, she unlocks his creative muse and dark sexual cravings. As Grace and Jason come together in a fusion of passion and art, they find themselves slowly breaking out of their carefully constructed cages, forcing Grace to confront the ghosts of her past.
As Jason captures what he most wants on film, can he capture it in real life? And can Grace risk exposing more than just her skin?
It's not very often I say this about a BDSM book but I loved this story. This is certainly an author I'm going to read more of. There's one word I could use to describe the writing style--exquisite.
From the first page you're pulled into Grace's world. She's a self-destructive exhibitionist who has been in 'recovery' for a year until a friend invites her to a BDSM party and she ends up on display as the 'guestbook'. She needs to deny this part of herself but wants the release that Jason Wright promises. I totally connected with Grace. I loved that she wasn't falling at Jason's feet from the first time she saw him.
Jason is a top who knows how to give a bottom/sub what he or she wants. He loves dominating people and gets off on pushing peoples boundaries. When he meets Grace, he finds the perfect canvass for his art. But will Grace finally let go and stop fighting her demons?
I said already I love this book. There is a great cast of engaging characters and the scenes are just beautiful. The only thing I could've done without were the scenes involving others outside of Jason and Grace. But I also understand the author was trying to get the reader to understand what made Jason tick.
If you love BDSM erotica then you've got to read this.
“Does anyone actually like you when they meet you?” Grace challenged.
“I think I like you like this.” Jason laughed. “Not like last weekend when the cat had your tongue.”
“If only I could say the same.”
“You like me. I’m sure of that.”
“Yeah?” Her brow quirked. “What part of this exchange is leading you to this great understanding?”
“Because I walked over here staring right at your crotch.” He looked her straight in the eyes. “And I think you not only knew … but you liked it. Being the exhibitionist that you are. Such nice red panties, Kiki. Are they wet?”
She closed her eyes and breathed in deep. It was all she could do to still the erotic shiver.
“Know what else I think?” Voice low, he didn’t wait for her to answer. “I think you’d like to hike your skirt up and show yourself to me. Right here, right now. Wouldn’t you?”
