This erotic/BDSM novella was short and sweet. The story was consistent and the characters strong, but because the story was so short, there was very little character development. The sex scenes weren’t strong BDSM scenes, so if you are looking from that; you won’t get it here but I thought they were very erotic and sensual, I liked it. The food descriptions were just mind bending. Being a chocolate freak myself, I really enjoyed it and wanted to try Eve’s cheesecake myself, lol. The only thing I wanted was for the story to be a little longer because I really enjoyed the relationship between Chris & Eve.
