3.5 Unexpectedly nice. Difficult topic handled well. Second time I get acquainted with a certain type of gags. My (virtual) education in the world of bondage is a never-ending journey. o_o I liked the characters - Adam, Denver, Louisa. Wantend to kick Brad in the nether regions, but liked everyone else. It felt like I shoud know them, though, and I don't. I've only read one other book in this series - [b:Where Nerves End|14061034|Where Nerves End (Tucker Springs, #1)|L.A. Witt|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1337538048s/14061034.jpg|19698182] and I don't remember much about it other than 1) I liked how the pain management problem was presented (also difficult topic well handled) and 2) I wanted a book about Seth (which I'm getting, yay [b:Covet Thy Neighbor|17305027|Covet Thy Neighbor (Tucker Springs, #4)|L.A. Witt|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1359499031s/17305027.jpg|23963301]) - and Seth is the best friend who introduced indirectly the main characters whose names I don't recall. It took me awhile to get into the story. My mind was preoccupied with other stories yet unfinished and/or unpublished and this just didn't feel like the right distraction. So I started it, stopped, went to free shorts, to free long stories, to rereading favourites. But maybe it's not just me, maybe it does take a while to get connected to Adam's mind process and to get to care about him. I loved the final scene.
