He’s going to hell. Not that he’s any stranger to the place. For two years Richard Wolfe has lived in a self-imposed hell in order to prove his devotion to the woman he loves. When Dr. Fallon Enright asks for an early release from her contract with the Lothario, Richard knows his time has run out. Desperate to keep her onboard, he stoops to an all-time low, even for him.

Fallon knew it wouldn’t be easy to walk away from the Lothario, and the man she loves, but she never dreamed Richard would stoop to blackmail to keep her onboard. Worse, instead of leveling charges of sexual harassment, she’d agreed to his asinine plan. For the next week, she would submit to Richard, in all things. The possibilities sent a shiver down her spine.

I was actually surprised by how quickly I was thrown into this book! From the moment I’d read the first sentence, I was hooked. It was that perfect neither-of-the-character’s-realises-they’re-both-actually-liking-each-other story, and yet so much more. First of all the setting was definitely nothing I’d ever read before; taking place on a very special ship on the sea. Then I loved the fact that these two had actually been around each other for years, which made it somewhat more believable as well.

I have to say that it was a bit slow in the middle though. I mean, I do love me some sexy time, but when it’s practically the same thing going on for each time something steamy is going on, it gets a bit old. But it quickly turned around for the better again, so I wasn’t suffering for long! In fact, it was only for a few pages and I might not even have noticed this if I hadn’t read it all at once either.

I adored the main characters. Truly! Richard was a perfect hero for the story. Both H-O-T and so wonderfully sweet that I just wanted to hug him. More than once. I wouldn’t complain to have a guy doing what he did for Fallon, for me. Sigh. Even though it might have been a bit much at times... And Fallon was a really nice heroine as well. I can often get a bit annoyed at the ladies in novels, but I wasn’t at Fallon. She was very reasonable and surely knew what she wanted. Although I would have liked to smack her at one point. But why that is, you’ll just have to find out for yourself! I also loved how connected I became with the characters; I could actually feel the love and pain taking place throughout the book, which I adore in a book.

I’m very sure that if it hadn’t been for that little drawn-out period in the middle, it would have been a full 5 cup rating. As it is though, it didn’t quite reach that. However, that doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t recommend it; I definitely would. All of you Erotic Romance fans out there, who enjoys BDSM, shouldn’t hesitate to pick it up! Who knows; you might not even find it slow at all. I will definitely have to check out more books by this author!
