I can't, in good faith give this book less than 3 stars. I really need to stop doing this to myself. I was expecting wooing. Just a little wooing. Nope, not a stitch. I like a well written pain slut like anyone else. I just couldn't suspend reality. The dubious consent (at least it came off that way to me) was not an issue at all, but at least the story could have stretched over a week or two.
