For the last two months, Brianna has discovered something she never thought she would again. Hope. After the horror of being Ian’s slave for ten months, a fate she never imagined she’d escape, it feels as if she is living a dream. She has freedom she hadn’t expected to have again, and she wakes up every morning not fearing what the day will bring.
There is also Stephan. The man who saved her from the daily torture she had to endure at the hands of Ian and his friends. The same man who makes her heart race with just the thought of him. Life is good.
Outside forces are determined to conspire against them, however. When Brianna’s father shows up on her doorstep, it sends her world spiraling out of control. He brings with him new information about how Brianna ended up in Ian’s clutches, but will it make a difference? Will Stephan be able to find a way to make Ian pay for all he made Brianna suffer?
As Brianna and Stephan try to find out the truth, their relationship is tested. She is forced to face her past head on and deal with the ugly reality of what happened to her. Will Stephan’s love be enough to see her through her newest challenge, or will the fragile trust they’ve built come crumbling down around them as the truth makes itself known.
The Finding Anna series is one of the most lyrical and addictive BDSM – romance series I have ever read. If you have been thinking about reading Slave and Need, the first two books in the Finding Anna series, please read them now because TRUTH is an absolutely breathtaking story.
In Truth, Brianna is slowly healing from her earlier brutal confinement, but is far from free of the emotional scars inflicted on her by Ian, her cruel Master. Although Stephan has become her ultimate protector, he is after all still a Dom and he must be extremely cautious in furthering their Dom/ sub relationship. Brianna also worries what their friends and acquaintances will think about their very unusual relationship, but Stephan does everything, and I mean everything, in his power to help her learn to trust again.
“BDSM isn’t about a Dominant forcing his will upon another. It’s about fulfilling both individual’s needs.”
Things REALLY heat up between Stephan and Brianna in Truth. This is a beautiful and explicit exploration of the nature of a Dominant and submissive relationship. The author has created some very, very erotic scenes between Stephan and Brianna, but even though Stephan’s feelings for Brianna are quite clear, she fears that she will not be strong enough to sustain a loving relationship with him.
Stephan is one swoon-worthy Dom! He takes great pride in helping Brianna and loves that even the simplest things in life bring her extreme happiness. The story also has some danger and lots of thrilling elements with the presence of Brianna’s father as well as Stephan’s efforts to bring Brianna’s former sadistic master, Ian, to justice.
Yes, there is a very sudden and shocking conclusion to Truth. The story is so rich and well-crafted that I can’t wait to see where Ms. Hayes takes Stephan and Brianna next. Truth is a must-read book and I can’t wait to read more from Sherri Hayes.
