I know I'm the dummy who bought this book even after I read all of the reviews about this not being Erotica, but rather an out and out horror story. I don't know what I thought- maybe I assumed that the other reviewers were just over sensitive and I was much more open-minded. Well, now I know--this is horrible, not romantic or arousing in any way, shape or form. This is a story of a merciless sub-human man who convinces himself that he is helping a woman by kidnapping her and then gets off on not only physical abusing her but also (and maybe this is what makes it so hard to like this book), mentally and emotionally degrading her. It is not submission or control as a means to some sort of sexual or passionate connection. It is really a pathological rapist, without a shred of humanity. And that is what is really missing here, the "hero" doesn't have the inner core of trust or virtue that would make the listener like him at least a little. He just enjoys breaking her over and over, although he says that isn't' what he wants, everything points to fact that he does. He likes degrading her, and making her crawl and beg for basic needs like food, water, warmth, and safety. He smiles when she cringes or whimpers.
The story doesn’t even make sense; he is supposedly saving her from being raped by the drug lords that are looking for her. But he rapes her repeatedly and while the drug lords probably would have done the same, given the choice I think I’d go with them. They couldn’t possibly be as sadistic as he is—what are the odds that there are two people as messed up as our “hero” in the world.
It sucks really, because the author had many chances to make him more sympathetic and grow a connection between the two, but all you're left with is a horrible case of stockholm syndrome, where our captor mentally abuses a woman to the point where she no longer can function. I mean come on….he puts a collar and leash on her and makes her pee outside in front of him and then he say, “good girl” and click’s his tongue like she’s a dog! I found myself wondering if this were a test by the authors to see how far they could go with the whole BDSM thing before it ceased to sexy. Well, this is it....too far, NOT sexy.
......Please don't buy this book, I'm afraid someone somewhere will think that this is what woman like and therefore this how he should treat some woman. In real BDSM, it is consensual, not kidnapping and rape like this.

I get what was supposed to be happening here but that was nothing but Stockholm syndrome
