I’ve loved Beck and Seth from the beginning of the first Doms of Her Life Series...although I did have to get over the initial Seth as a big bad sadist dom persona first. It did melt away fairly quickly. Seth and Beck as a pair are a great team. That they came together as strangers to be with Heavenly so much easier than Liam and Macen was interesting. I guess they learned what not to do.
This book is second in this particular series, but I’d call it sixth overall. I can understand Heavenly wanting to follow her fathe’s wishes, but sometimes you also have to think for yourself. It became frustrating between her whining about not knowing what to do, whether to do what her dad wanted or stay with two men who loved her desperately and that she loved. Several times I would have liked to shake her to see if I could get her head on right. It’s not like you couldn’t have adventure and see the world with them.
While these books stress how important it is to be open and honest in the D/s lifestyle, it almost makes it seem like it’s not important it normal everyday life. Openness and honesty are the cornerstone of any good relationship and the kinds of secrets that Heavenly was hiding from Seth and Beck were unacceptable. Beck’s secret was totally astonishing as there was really no hint of it over six books. While it affected everyone, it wasn’t the trivial everyday things that Heavenly chose to hide. I know the book kept talking about how innocent she was, but she’d taken care of her father for six years, so she just wasn’t that innocent in the ways of the world, other than sex.
