Wow. Fan-ta-bu-lous erotica by Cara McKenna. Still fanning myself. Sexy, emotional, intense, with a tender final scene that sneaks up on you. Just loved it. Appreciated that although both Laurel and Flynn have not-so-pleasant backstories, their mutual kink isn't really related, nor are their backstories explanations for their preferences. Yay!
**Trigger warning--please read at beginning of book. It wasn't a problem for me--it helped that it was so clearly consensual and boundaries were respected. :)
Good lawd! Love, love how McKenna writes with such nuance about such gritty characters. Perfect.
