1. (of a person or animal) having a large amount of excess flesh.
Hi. My name is Maggie, and I’m a fat person. No, I’m not a self-loathing, angry woman who thinks all skinny girls are the devil spawn of satan, thank you very much. What I am, is a cubicle dwelling, shy girl with a healthy love for all things chocolate and deep fried. Yeah, I know I should put down the brownie and pick up a celery stalk but where is the fun in that? My best friend Polly assures me that the club we’re going to tonight is going to be loads of fun, but I’m not sure. Until I meet him.

1. abnormally afraid of water
Yes, Yes. Laugh it up. A 30 year old sexually Dominant male, who owns his own club, is scared of water. If you’d been through what I had as a child you’d be fucking terrified of it too. I’ve always looked for Mrs. Right now, preferring to fling myself from a moving airplane into the Atlantic than to think about settling down. Until she comes walking into Newcomers night at my club.
1. the complex emotional or psychological interaction between two people.
This is Jackson’s world, not mine, but he’s slowly dragging me under, introducing me to things I don’t fully understand, but want to learn. There is something between us. We can’t fight it and we’re both sinking.
|An interesting read and my first of this author. I liked the blurb and thought this would be a little light fun read but it took me to some strange places.|
First off I knew the female character, Maggie, was a larger lady but upon reading it and although it was thrown down the reader’s throat constantly that Maggie was fat, to me I don’t see that she was. After all a man easily picking you up and carrying you up flights of stairs, doesn’t count you as fat in my eyes. Maybe having a model as your best friend might have aided for her to cast doubt on her body image and lead to her self-consciousness. I don’t know but it just didn’t feel right to keep constantly putting in the storyline about her weight.
Jackson on the other hand was a bit of an enigma. A hot alpha Dom with a fragile insecurity and fear. Yes, I liked the complexity of his character but some of his actions had me squinting. Overall though I liked him and I liked Maggie. I just wish that their differences were not constantly fed into the dialogue.
This was a BDSM themed romance and I liked the differing of the characters in and out of the Dom room in the club, to how they were in Jackson’s home. Now it’s not often I say this but I got a little bored of all the sex scenes. There were fairly hot but it was more of a ‘tell’ as opposed to a ‘feel’ of the sensuality and erotic passion.
Overall I thought it was an OK read and although the blurb warns this is not a HEA, I didn’t like the ending personally. I left the book feeling a little detached and not sad to leave the characters behind which I usually do when finishing a book.
