Let me first start by saying if you haven’t read the series, you need to. This was a great conclusion to the series. In the first two books we learned about Kayla and all the crap she has had to endure. She has to be one of the strongest female characters I’ve read. She has dealt with an abusive husband, a child with cancer, and a blackmail relationship to save her child. So it comes to no surprise that at some point she would put a stop to some of the hypocrisies in the marriage.
Kayla and Gage did get married. But don’t think it is a happily ever after kind of marriage. While they both love each other in their own special way, these two are not happy. Both are keeping secrets from the other, and soon it will all come out. But they also have their wedding anniversary approaching, and Gage has something planned.
A dominate/submissive relation has two parts. The one that wants the control and the one where they hand over the control. Kayla isn’t what I would call a natural Submissive, but she wants to please Gage, so she does what she is told. But what happens when you get tired of giving, and the other person still wants it.
