Summary

Will the doors of The Den close forever?

When the lives and friendships of The Den owners are thrown into chaos, Noah Bakker steps in to deal with the fallout. He hasn't had a sub or participated in a scene since tragedy changed his life four years ago. But as an investor in the exclusive BDSM club, he can't walk away from the lifestyle completely.

As he works to keep the club running, he finds himself drawn to Liv Delcour, the seemingly naïve sister of one of the other owners. Liv didn't know about the naughty things her friends were up to behind closed doors, but when their secrets become headline news, she's more curious than shocked. As she works with Noah to keep the media at bay, she finds that his dominant strength is more than a little arousing. Soon they're exploring their mutual desires in the wickedest ways. Liv isn't sure if she can completely submit to Noah the way she thinks he wants her to - and Noah isn't sure he can withstand the pain of falling in love....

Events more entertaining than the main couple

My least favorite until now and it has me wondering if I should listen to the next book. I like the ‘Den-clan’ and appreciate Lynda Aicher shows us that practitioners of BDSM have vanilla lives and it can get complicated.
That said Liv and Noa are not my favorite characters. Maybe it’s the lack of BDSM in their relationship or they just didn’t have as much chemistry as the others did?

I wanted more Liv and Noah time☹️

I enjoyed the book and was glad to finally know Noah’s story. If the romance is too insta-love, it annoys me but, If their relationship is finally cemented and the book ends, I’m always disappointed. I want a chance to experience more than one sex scene and an epilogue with the couple.
I was very touched by Noah’s struggles to overcome his past so he could by all he can be for Liv. I just wish it would’ve taken so long.
I really appreciated the way their group of friends really supported each other during their crisis. So many times, when friendships are really tested, they fail. I’m so glad that the author made positives out of the tragedy. I also appreciated the way she handled the bouquet tossing.
I also had several times when I really lol! One time I was in bed listening while my husband was sleeping and the multiple vomiting scene, on the bus happened and I couldn’t help it. I busted out laughing. I just couldn’t stop and then the dogs started barking to join in and, you guessed it, We woke my husband. Between the scene in the book and my dogs’ reaction, it took me a good couple of minutes to calm down enough to be able to explain to my husband what was so funny. Unfortunately, for some reason, he didn’t see the humor in it.
Oh well, I’m kinda sad to see the series end because I really liked all the characters, but alas, all good things really do end.

Feels like an apology for writing this series

Yes there is still sex. Yes the Den is still in the story.

I felt like much of this book was an apology for having written the entire series. It could have been a great book. But a total let down.

Sad to See it End

The beginning of this book had me so wrapped up in the story it was hard to turn it off. I love how everyone played a roll in this book. I'm sad to see it end but I'm glad there was a happily ever after
