Book 3 Synopsis:
“Having moved on from the terrible events of two months earlier, Dylan
and Isa try to move on with their lives. Things seem to be going well
as they grow into the roles of their unconventional D/s relationship,
each learning the give and take of power and pain, accepting and
giving love unconditionally, and respecting each other’s wants,
desires and need for control.
But Isa has been fighting with the demons of her past. Recurring
nightmares have begun to plague her and fear of the future overwhelms
her on a daily basis. Her desire for control and independence prevent
her from sharing her deepest fears with the man she loves, threatening
to drive a wedge between the couple.
With gentle yet stern prodding from her cherished Dom, Isa confides in
Dylan and their bond grows deeper. But their kinky fairy tale
existence is all too good to be true when Isabel’s father sets forth a
chain of events that will test their love and loyalty for each other,
and Isa is forced to decide which is more important – Dylan’s life or
her happily ever after.”
We see an immediate continuation of Isabel and Dylan’s story in The
Art of Control. Isa has developed in her progress as a submissive, and
Dylan’s feelings have only deepened for her:
“When her eyes met mine, I know without a doubt that I would do
anything for her, anything. She owns me, too, and there’s no denying
Dylan has to learn to become open and honest with Isabel and it is the
one thing that could drive a wedge between them. There is a lot of mayhem that develops around them, and they must be strong in order to survive all the craziness.
The alternating POV’s continue in Book 3 which made me feel totally connected with all of the characters. Dylan is sexy, funny, protective and tender and I love him as a character. I read this book slowly because I did not want it to end! Hopefully the author will develop one of the sexy characters in Book 3 (no spoilers!) because I want to read more of his story.
