I'M KEEPING HER.
The sweet psychology student with a troubled past.
Her ex is stalking her, but I won't let him hurt her again.
I'll finish him if he even tries.
Because I love the way she submits.
Her sweet soft yes, sirs. The way she gives herself over to me.
I should let her go--she has her whole life ahead of her.
But I can't. I'm buying her a collar and making her mine.
Carolyn got out of a bad, abusive relationship with a guy who used BDSM in a way that it shouldn't be used. He was abusive and used that as his way to hurt her. She's been free of him for four years but he keeps tracking her down when she moves to a new place and she's scared he might find her again.

I loved this book, it had the right amount of danger, romance and BDSM in it to make it really fun. I am having such a good time reading this series.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
