Thought this was going to be an emotional read but at the end I really didn’t care what they ended up doing.
Too annoyed with the heroine Renita to care. Felt she loved whichever man she was currently with and was one dimensional.
Two male leads in Cole and Lucas but she did with Cole what she did with Micah, totally changed his loveable character to make him unlikeable.
Started well but then just spiralled down to a sad ending for me. It was the only way this was going to end but still, had to wade through all the gumf first.
This author has a bad habit of writing short dialogue that is supposed to cover a large area.
I come and go with this author as when she writes a good book, it is GOOD but too often if I binge read her books they are very formulaic.
I own and had read and reviewed this book years ago.
I am off to read a different author to cleanse my palate.

Ren is a petite submissive of with some asian heritage, her master is Lucas and they have been together for a year in a very successful relationship. The only downside is that Lucas is known to be a short-term master and Ren adores his handling of her but accepts that it may not be long term.
Cole is Ren's first real love and the person who she explored her sway toward D/s with, he made a mistake - during an intense scene involving a bullwhip he marked her badly and she needed stitches. Cole never forgave himself and withdrew from Ren physically and then eventually left her.
Cole sees Ren with Lucas at his club and decides that he wants her back, for good and here lies the basis of the story - both dominant men want Ren for themselves but also love her enough to want her to be happy. Lucas gives Ren to Cole for two weeks to work their 'thing' out of their system and this allows Ren and Cole to re-ignite their love but also leads Ren to accept her love for Lucas. This is heartbreaking to read at times as you feel Ren's anguish and it is written very well.
The sex scenes are extremely hot, some of the best i've read and these include menage/group scenes, bdsm, public scenes, anal and a very hot captain and steward!!!
I will wait awhile but will definately be reading this yet again when the page porn well runs dry for a while!
Maya Banks has written Cole's story for his fans. She has stated it is not book 5 in the sweet series, but then again she has still included sweet in the title. It is far from sweet! I'm no prude, but some of the sex scenes were pornographic. Even I was shocked.
So Cole has featured in some of the other books and we didn't know much about him. Turns out when he was young, he fell for a girl called Ren. They both wish to experiment with bondage etc and Cole being the Master in the relationship. However, Cole got a bit carried away with a belt and hurt Ren...even leaving a scar. He couldn't bear the guilt he felt so he left her. It didn't ring true with what we know of Cole that he would give up the love of his life because he hurt her when they were learning what they liked. It seems Ren was not upset he had hurt her...she is more upset he left her.
Fast forward 10 years and whilst Cole is out for dinner with Damien and Serena, he sees Ren. Unfortunately, she is with her new Master, Lucas.
The book starts with Lucas' story. He reminds me a lot of Damien and I liked him. He takes care of Ren. The second part of the book is Cole. I didn't actually like Cole's story that much. I didn't like the sex scenes or what they got up to (M/F, M/M/M/F!). The final part of the book is Ren's story.
Basically, Lucas knows that Ren was once in love with Cole and he knows Cole wants Ren, so he allows Cole to have her for two weeks (he doesn't tell Ren). He wants her back after two weeks. There is too much of Ren thinking and missing Lucas and even realising she is in love with him! But, she loves Cole as well. Cole loves Ren, Lucas loves Ren. It has a HEA, but not one that I was pleased with.
I don't really understand why Maya Banks went with this storyline for Cole. I would have preferred him as a side character in the Sweet series than this story. There is more I could say but I have already given too many spoilers.
She got what she wanted and needed in the end. Engrosed start to finish.
