Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If you loved Fifty Shades of Grey . . . get ready to enter The Dark Garden.

A deliciously potent tale of one woman’s quest for self-discovery.

Rowan Cassidy likes to be in charge—especially in her personal life. As a mistress at Club Privé, the most exclusive bondage/S & M club on the West Coast, Rowan can live out her dominant fantasies safely, and with complete control—until the night Christian Thorne walks in. Self-confident and sophisticated, he’s a natural dominant if Rowan’s ever seen one. Yet she can’t stop thinking about him and imagining his touch.

Christian has returned home, hoping to break free from his dissatisfaction and malaise—and discovers the cure in Rowan. He’s dying to get his skilled hands on her and watch her surrender, to unlock the mystery of her that captivates him. Determined to be her master, he makes Rowan a daring proposition: give herself over to him for thirty days.

Rowan finds Christian’s offer terrifying—and impossible to resist. But abandoning herself to Christian’s power might be more than she can handle. . . . Or it might be the realization of her true nature and the dark garden within her. There will be only one way to find out. And once the game has begun, there’s no turning back.

Synopsis:

Bradley tells a deliciously potent tale of one woman's quest for self-discovery that will introduce readers to contemporary Los Angeles's bondage underground.

I wanted to like this book. I really did. And I have read quite a few erotica novels in my time. I don’t read too many of them anymore, not because I dislike them but there isn’t much of a story line most of the time. Unfortunately, that is exactly how I felt about this book. The book is based on Rowan, a dominatrix who works in a club for doms and subs. She loves her job but lately has found she doesn’t really want to “play.” She isn’t sure why this is happening, but her life is about to change when Christian walks in. Christian is also a dom but is immediately attracted to Rowan ��" the feeling is mutual. He offers a game of sorts ��" for her to give him 30 days to explore a different side ��" a more submissive side of herself, and she agrees although somewhat reluctantly. She has a past secret, something that makes her never want to be submissive to anyone.

I was hoping it would be some sort of earth shattering secret but it wasn’t. I was hoping that this book would have some kind of plot twist but it didn’t. It focused mostly on the sexual aspect of the encounters that Rowan and Christian, and April and Decker had. I found it to be quite boring and actually started skimming through some of the pages. I don’t need to hear about the same type of sexual play numerous times to get the idea. I just wanted more. And to be honest, I found the “relationship” that formed between April and Decker to be more interesting.

I know that I am one of the few who feel this way after reading the other reviews on Amazon, so feel free to give it a shot. I’d love to know what you think/thought.
