This is the third book in the Mesmer series. In case you haven’t read the other two ,I’ll give you a brief
run down, however, this is a series that must be read in order. Elliot is a journalist trapped in a web of her own making. Unsure, scared, and a bit lost¸ it was painful for me to watch her try to find her way. Sent to obtain a story on an underground sex club she winds up a member exploring her own interests.
Uncomfortable with the dark, kinky thoughts, she feels is wrong, Ellie fights them every step of the way, making the road for her, and her sexy, mysterious, mentor, Luke, very difficult, to say the very least. I’ve been hoping for morsels about the soft spoken man who’d been absence from the club for some time. I was delighted to find the author gave us some tasty nibbles. *Smacks lips and rubs hands together with glee*. This book was all about journeys, the ones Elliot takes within herself, and the one she takes with Luke. I gave this story a three because of the awkward starting point, stopping point, and lack of forward moving plot. At times it felt more like chapters of a story, rather than a stand alone piece.
The Mesmer society lives in a world removed from our own, but as the veil is lifted it’s easy to see they’re more like us then we thought. Sexy, edgy, and intriguing, this story isn’t your average erotic romance.

This was none stop drama from the first paragraph. This can be a good thing, however, due to the shortness of the story it felt over the top. I’ll do a quick re-cap for those of you who haven’t read the first book. When we last left our heroine Elliot, a savvy, bold, reporter for the school’s paper, she’d been kidnapped… yes, literally. Her lack of anger and indignation about being drugged didn’t sit well with me, and that unsettled feeling remained for the rest of the story.
This book really delves deeper into the heart of the Mesmer society. Which means more BDSM, and in some cases, extreme examples of domination. So be forewarned, this isn’t for the faint of heart. I personally took issue with the fact a lot of the domination was mishandled, now to be fair, Ms. Rain acknowledges this in the book, but it was too imbalanced with the other events that happened. I was left feeling like a vast majority of the society is abusing their position and mishandling pledges. I didn’t like how Elliot became a victim in this book.
Despite the things I didn't like, the story is very interesting and exciting! Among these characters, obscene wealth, and behavior is the norm. It’s impossible to not be engaged and keep moving on to the next page. If you haven’t read the first book in the series, you’ll be lost, so I would suggest you read them in order.

Loved the story but the ending made me want to shake my Nook like it owed me lunch money, no really. It was the one thing holding me back from giving it 5 stars. I’m all for a series leaving you wanting more but this one came to a screeching halt before I made my train stop. You’re a tease Lain. Apparently
it’s a good thing though, because I sure as heck will be reading part two of this series. Lol.
This interesting account gives a fascinating, and realistic glimpse into emotions, and thoughts, on a situation one wouldn’t often find themselves in. It was all too easy to imagine being the heroine,
sweet, unsuspecting photojournalist student, Elliot, who goes to cover the story of her career and ends up discovering something about herself she doesn’t know how to deal with. Undercover working a story on a secret sex society is a hell of a time to realize you’re into kink. The description of the acts performed where blistering hot with the proper amount of sweetness. I loved that Lain showed it’s about control, but there’s caring and enjoyment there as well. Sometimes I think that’s sorely lacking in BDSM romance.
If you’re looking for a quick read to peak your curiosity, bring the heat, and you don’t mind a cliff hanger ending I’m going to say this is a must read.
