Valla saved her money and took the vacation of a lifetime to New Zealand. She's taking a week long camping trip with five other strangers, and two guides. She hoped to be exploring and enjoying the beauty of New Zealand - she ended up with a whole lot more adventure than she ever could have imagined.
The camping trip takes them into remote sections of New Zealand, visiting establishments that are frequented by locals. During lunch one day - Valla's breath is taken away by the sexy man she sees getting lunch. That same night she runs into him again at a bar where the group goes - a little alcohol, and some encouragement, and Valla is serenading him with "Criminal" by Fiona Apple.
This night changes her whole trip - alone by the campfire, she is grabbed from behind and when she wakes up she doesn't know where she is. The only thing she does recognize is the man who is at the house she is at - the guy from the bar.....Brocan Judge. Judge wants her - he's a Dom with a capital "D" - and he's not going to let her get away. He makes her an enticing offer that she just can't say no to.
I could feel for Valla as she struggled at times with her decision to stay with Judge for the week, and get to experience being his sub. She accepted his terms - because she truly felt the attraction between them, and wanted to see if a relationship could start. The problem was her head would get in the way - and she worried whether he would take her back to town in a week like he promised. When Valla challenges Judge, being the Dom that he is - she faces the consequences.
This was another great hot read from Christine Edwards, with a Dom that will have you dropping to your knees in submission. I look forward to the next country and Dom that Ms. Edwards decides to write about!
