My rating: 4 of 5 stars
When Willing Victim was published it generated a great deal of controversy and discussion, and I was one of its fans. However, like so many other readers, I felt it ended a bit abruptly and that there was more to Flynn and Laurel's story. We get the answers in Brutal Game.
Flynn and Laurel are not only well-drawn characters, but you get the feeling they're real like the person next door. Their BDSM isn't secret red rooms and gold chains and silk masks, it's duct tape and soft old t-shirts for tying knots. In this book we see how their relationship has grown from their beginning playing brutal games together, and when a crisis threatens to upend all they have, they react like normal people would.
Clearly these stories are not for all readers, but I enjoyed them and would recommend the books to readers of erotic romance wanting a short novel that's well written, has real drama and has characters you can relate to.
