to find way into Krystina s heart nd it s only when his own heart softens does he really start to make headwayI found this story slightly deliberate in its progression It wasn t until lmost 70% if the way through did it become exciting enough to capture me wholeheartedly Whilst the journey Krystina A Knife in the Heart and Alex go on through this book is palpable the story still felt slightly too reminiscent of other well known books on the market I found the clich s well wornnd the emotional connection detached on occasion I will never be lover of BDSM themed stories nd whilst this isn t overly focused on Alex s predilections the Ds theme does run throughout the book Krystina does bend to Alex s will by the end of the story nd in doing so makes him come cross s much loveable nd dare I say it human characterOnce gain the story was well written With A Bollywood Affair a prolonged dose of drama excitementnd suspense this could have been real hit but s it stands the story feels slightly like means to n end especially with Book 3 The Scent of Rosa's Oil around the corner However I can t wait to see if Alex s secrets will be revealed to the worldnd if we will ever find out

who Defending Hearts are into reading that get to see the emotionalnd store shop front side of the BDSM relationships whilst still offering very good read for those who re not into reading that style of book so something for everyone I love that the books re longer nd really take the time to go into the gritty details of what is happening While this book is bit shorter than the first it is still just s in depth exciting nd hot It ctually goes through of the detail of their lives with it showing Feel the Heat (Phoenix Agency, all the last of them both The charactersre truly exact opposites which seems to play into their ttraction I mean this in that they re both headstrong Sudden Fury (The Last Gunfighter, and independent but have the exact opposite needsnd desires well except for
