I'd give this 2.5 stars if possible so rounded it up to 3. I liked the characters of both Chloe and Brendan when I ran into them in the Ice Queen/Mirror of my Soul duo and I still liked them in this book but they were different. In this book, I had a hard time connecting with Chloe and the characters of Marguerite and Tyler seemed a bit different also. Although, I think the author tries to explore the psychology of people in the BDSM lifestyle, it somehow falls flat. I don't think I'll read any more from this series. Like the last book, there were too many words for how much story is there.
