Joy Montgomery is a woman who has never liked herself very much. She thinks her curves are too curvy, she’s shy and she just wants to get her job done. She is has to save her job and approach the bad-boy, Ash Hunter. He’s an artist who specializes in photographing women tied up. Joy asks him to exhibit his work in her gallery. But, he has a stipulation. He wants her to pose for him. Joy overcomes her shyness and spends her first night with Ash. He shows her just how beautiful she is, even though she tries, at first, to deny it. Ash is attracted to the voluptuous woman like no other before. Her chaotic life calls to his protective side. Ash has a strong sense of trust, but Joy has done something that may betray that. Can Ash forgive her?

This is a pretty hot read. I guess I should start out by saying that there are lots of sex scenes that involve the hero tying up the heroine and sometimes spanking her. It is all consenting, and highly erotic. I think the reader will certainly be rooting for Joy. Who of us are not exactly happy about the way we are, or the way we look. Yet, Joy finds a man who appreciates her as she is and she slowly becomes more confident with herself. This was really nice to experience. Ash is a bit of an enigma. On the one side he is an artist. He not only takes photographs, he also makes sculptures. On the other side, he has a career as a security specialist that he apparently enjoys. I did have a bit of trouble trying to connect these two very opposite sides of Ash’s character. Also, I found myself skipping the sex scenes after a while as there were quite a few of them. Apart from that, however, I did enjoy this story very much and would definitely read more from Lilli Feisty.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
