Wow---When I first began to read this book, I quite enjoyed getting to know Kloe and Anderson---a wild man known as Judd who had been kept in a dank basement since a child. The more I read, the more I enjoyed the twists and turns that just kept coming and coming. The dark depravity of what Anderson/Judd experienced at the hands of his tormentors for 21 years before being discovered was traumatic, and as a therapist, it was Kloe’s job to help him heal. When Kloe’s husband has an affair that Kloe finds out about, some of her childhood history is revealed and she is hiding some scars of her own. When she rejects the unwanted attention from her boss, he produces a tape of her overstepping the therapist line with the intense connection she feels with Anderson/Judd and is forced into taking another job in another country, leaving Anderson/Judd after promising she’d always be there for him. I did not see some of the twists in this story coming. This was my first dark erotic read, and some of the scenes will be shocking for some. The ending in this book left me heading straight to buy the second, Chained, because I just had to know how their story ended. I would recommend this book for those who love dark, erotic, depraved thrillers. But it is not for the faint of heart.
