WOW! Truly the hottest book I've ever read - ha, but give me time :) When I finished it, I almost immediately started flipping back through it. Yes - there's an actual mystery plot and character development, the latter being focused on the sexual inhibition of a reluctant submissive. Honestly, I had to get the darn book out of my house! Just too tempting. My girlfriend is halfway through it now; she's loving it thus far, but says "you need a man on standby when you're reading this!"
Wicked Ties was my first foray into erotica and it definitely did not disappoint. The book was fast-paced and had me hooked within the first 5 pages. Morgan's struggles/inner turmoil was so well-written! I'm looking forward to reading Shalya Black's follow-up, "Decadent."
