Isabel lost her husband and shelved all the kinky things they did. But now she wants more than her socialite charities and the vanilla men with them. She wants the excitement of BDSM she once experienced under the eyes of her voyeuristic late husband. Joining a kink dating site, she is matched up with the dominant she once dealt with, but that isn’t want she wants any more. Determine to talk to her two best male friends, she heads to their local bar to watch the game with them.
When Chris the bartender over hears her talking about dating sites, he knows he needs to direct her on a different path. A path that leads to him. He hides his business card for her to discover and waits for her to find the informational BDSM site he runs. Instantly he knows when she joins and asks her if she Wants to Go Private? This leads to deeper discussion and a date to meet at the local bar.
Now here is where I just think it got all screwed up. One, Chris has a friend, Larry, that just comes across as a total sleazeball! The other is that Chris doesn’t tell Isabel he is the man she is chatting with until he closes up for the evening. Chris discovers Isabel doesn’t dress the way he told her too. He ties her to the bar tap and does some things I just think were rude. Both said some unforgivable things to each other and really, I think the story should have ended there. This scene wasn’t sexy. It wasn’t titillating and forbidden. It was just creepy.
The two do get back together for another scene, but by this point, I felt the two should have just gone their separate ways. What started out as an awesome premise, just never delivered what I wanted. These two need a lot more time talking and getting to know each other before they go any further, but I didn’t see that happening. Just wasn’t my type of book.
