Number of pages: 341
Determined to find the human traffickers preying on Shadowlands’ submissives, Master Raoul gets himself invited to a small slave auction. Once informed, the FBI orders him to reject the limited choices so the slavers will invite him to the big auction. To Raoul’s shock, one of the slaves is the kidnapped friend of a Shadowlands sub. She has a scarred body…and an unbroken spirit. He can’t leave her behind. Ruining the FBI’s carefully laid plans, he buys her.
Kimberly’s freedom has come at a devastating price: the other women are still slaves. An FBI raid is their only hope for rescue. Desperate to help the Feds locate the big auction, she agrees to pose as Master Raoul’s slave. Wearing a collar again is terrifying, but under the powerful dominant’s care, Kim starts to heal and then to blossom. This is what she’s been drawn to—and fled from—her entire life.
She escaped the slavers who captured her body—can she escape the master who’s captured her heart?
This story was like part two of Make Me, Sir because we can see what happens with the FBI operation and how one of the slaves handles the real world after her release.
I liked Master Raoul and how he tried to help Kimberly since he first saw her, and not just because she’s friends with Gabrielle. He really cares about her and after he bought her and discovers that he needs to live and act as her Dom for more time is really tormenting to him.
I liked the book and the story was really interesting. We can see the FBI breaking a slaves organization and also how one of the girls who fought for her life is learning how to live again.
One thing I did not enjoy was the rejection at the end and how Master Raoul thought he knew better and tried to push Kimberly away because he was afraid of his feelings and how she was coping.
