Sparked by curiosity and drawn by need, Swiss banker Claire asks Italian businessman Luca to introduce her to the D/s lifestyle. He agrees, as long as she abides by his number one rule of not falling in love. The two then embark on a slow, complete and realistic path of liberating Claire’s true submissive nature.
But as their lessons progress, blurred lines morph into a child’s scribbled drawing when feelings creep into their playtime. And with new emotions bubbling under the surface, Luca questions Claire’s hard no. She calls “red” and walks away, leaving the Dom sure he’s lost the one sub who finally saw his true desire to be cared for.
Now, certain she’s broken his only rule and torn by thoughts of betraying her dead husband, Claire must decide between exploring the love she’s found or locking away her heart with the ghosts of her past.
|This book is not really a hardcore BDSM book. I found it to be first a love story and also a story of a woman Claire who is a Swiss banker getting over the death of her husband. When Luca an Italian businessman comes to her wanting a loan to purchase the club. Wanting to first know what the money would be given to she asks to see the club. This begins her interest in the lifestyle. Luca is also drawn to her from an article in a magazine but is really taken by her once he sees her in person. Now the two of them begin to spend time together and the first night that they together grab you the reader. That is when you know it is a love story and she is working through the loss of her husband. The more time they spend together the more they want to be with one another even when life pulls them apart. Like I said there is so much more to this story, and the other characters help with it, his Nonna, cousin, and niece, her assistant. Overall I found this to be a wonderful story.
