Safe in His Arms Renee Rose
Arc supplied by Netgalley.
Loved the premise of this book, read and enjoyed the sample but sadly that was all I enjoyed. It quickly annoyed me the way Zac was such a top secret Black Ops agent and yet was able to do all the things he did without getting pulled for it, or caught out and everything just ran so smoothly for him. The story he first went with, and the way his death was faked I could go along with, but if I’d been Becca and discovered that being left pregnant and to raise Parker alone these past seven years, and all the hard work and heartache that engendered and then find out that Zac was alive and well, and had known about Parker – well her reaction was Very Very Different to what mine would have been. Supposedly a strong woman, who’s gone through all that, raised Parker alone, qualified and working as an English teacher, and then she just rolls over and says “spank me” – well words to that effect…. Purlease…that’s just not feasible. She should have been angry, screamed, shouted, asked him what the hell he thought he’d done…instead she turned into a wimp, living out her online fictional D/s life for a few days, and accepting crumbs from his table. As for that scene where she puts herself in danger just to get Zac to come to her – hell, she knows he’s Black Ops now, does she just think he will drop everything??? Then Zac, can we really believe he learned all that from online tutorials? I know little about BDSM except from novels, but all I’ve read suggest hands on practice is the way to become an expert and safe for subs in what you do…
So, not a book for me, but as ever that’s a personal view. Maybe you’re prepared to suspend reality more than me for a good story, and will enjoy this, all I can say is I didn’t 😦
Stars: sadly just two, I didn’t hate the book, but I didn’t like it.
