I love romance and I love good sex. It is a healthy combination in real life. I write stories that touch on the ups and downs of lovers and the unique sexual experiences that make life a ton more fun.
I was so excited when Red Phoenix decided to continue on with the Brie series. And thankfully, she did not announce the new series too far in advance, so I did not have to wait long to get my hands on the new novella beginning this third chapter in Brie's journey with her Master, Sir. Right from the beginning, this book grabbed me and hung on tight. Red has a gift for drawing the reader in, making them experience the extreme emotions that flow through Brie. I loved that this brought back one of the most favored Doms, Tono. This whole novella is focused on Brie and Tono's spiritual connection, which was explained early in the first series, and it has carried over to each subsequent series. (Cheering loudly!)
Brie has grown up a lot so far, but she is still newer to the lifestyle and faces challenges that guide her on her journey. She is very much in love with Sir, but she has a very strong connection to Tono, whom she almost chose to collar, but because Tono's father reacted poorly to her, stating that Tono would not be enough for Brie, she decided that since they had a special bond with his father having taught him Kinbaku,she would not fight for him and chose Thane instead. She has never doubted her choice, but it hasn't always been easy.
Tono has always been a fan favorite. His sexy, gentle spirit lures you in. His skill with the rope ensnares you, and when his dominance is thrown in the mix, watch out for flames because he is smoking hot. His Asian flavor and traditions are as sexy as sin, and he has such a kind heart that when he goes missing, Brie feels it from the other side of the world. They have always had an unique connection that borders on magical.
Brie finally gets a letter from Tono, but she is still uneasy. Sir agrees that they need to support Tono whether he wants it or not, being that he knows exactly what Tono is going through. Their journey in Japan expands what we know of these three characters. I was captivated from page one to the end, and any Red Phoenix fan will be too. What will happen between Tono and Brie? With emotions running high, will their love ruin everything? How will Sir react to the revelations? What is going to happen to Tono? How will his world look after the tragedies? Of course no Brie book would be complete without a lovely dose of uber sexy Dom/sub situations, and this one does not disappoint. Well, I am going to go jump in a cold shower. Go grab this yummy read up now! All I can say is, welcome back Brie!! Hints at the next installment will have you salivating. Yes!
