You can find out in Absolution by LK Shaw … it’s OUT NOW!!
MY REVIEW – 4 stars
An enjoyable and well written romantic suspense
This was an easy to read, enjoyable and well written story that deals with some dark and difficult issues. These were very sensitively dealt with and it felt as though the author had definitely done her homework on the subject. Gina and Leo are two likeable and believable characters and I very much enjoyed their story.
I was surprised at how slow burn this was, though it fitted perfectly with the trials and tribulations Gina had suffered in the past and was going through now. Leo was the perfect strong rock in a storm to provide her a safe harbour to anchor her life too. The full plot meant that I almost missed how little ‘action’ there was in the book. I was too caught up in the wonderful story telling.
Absolution is my first foray into the world of the Doms of Club Eden and I found it easy to read as a standalone. We didn’t actually see much of the club, or any real BDSM action at all, leaving this feeling much more of a romantic suspense than anything else. It would actually be a suitable read for those who aren’t into BDSM romance, since it featured so briefly within the book and was in an ‘at home’ bedroom scene.
The writing flows smoothly and the prose is easy to follow. I never found it a struggle to follow either the action or the dialogue. I’d be happy to recommend this well written and entertaining book to others.
“Please, don’t leave me here.”
Those were the last, tearful words Gina Castillo spoke to me thirteen years ago. It killed me to go, but I was getting sucked further and further into a criminal lifestyle. I wanted more for myself. For her. So I left for the Army, knowing she’d be better off without me. Now I’m back: a better, stronger man, and Gina has grown into a beautiful woman. One who despises me. Soon I discover that all the truths I thought I left behind had been lies, and that my leaving caused nothing but heartache and destruction. Now I have to find a way to earn the forgiveness of the woman I’m coming to love.When my boss, and fellow Dominant, assigns me to be the bodyguard to a submissive, every protective instinct inside me rises. Especially when it turns out to be Gina I’m protecting. There’s nothing I won’t do for her, including destroy the enemy who threatens us both.
*This book contains sensitive subject matter that may be difficult for some readers.
