Personally as a reader - I think that this is the Best of Kailin Gow's adult series to date.
The heat has been turned up and found it to be very smooth flowing and delightful in many a scenes** waggles eyebrows**
The cover is sexy - appealing and certainly delicious.
In The Innocent we see a stronger side to Serena. A smokin hot sexy side to Sebastian and of course the arse that Price has always been, we see that he considers Serena a possession rather than a person. One form of abuse that stands out like a neon light.
All relationships are put forth for the reader to see - the dangerous yet kinky side to Price and Serena's past and present. Also Sebastian’s side I very much enjoyed – I have to say this surprised me, but loved it none the less.
Kailin has put forth in this story one of abuse - and maybe even paybacks a bitch. Abuse is not right no matter which scene you may enjoy. Whether Vanilla or kinky - there must always be a safe haven- safe word.
I found that Price never offered this to Serena - his standoffish nature didn’t appeal to me and even the exhibitionist that he was, I found that Serina was just a pawn in his life. One, whom he used, abused and manipulated for his benefit. He was certainly not a DOM I’d like to be submissive to. Or a Dom doing the right thing towards his submissive.
We may all like our many flavours when it comes to sex, but one thing I did notice is that Price rules the roost and really as a Dom - I didn’t find him to be acceptable and caring enough.
Pleasure and Pain comes in many forms for all people, but it must always be consensual. This is demonstrated within one aspect of this story between two willing participants however we also see that another is not always.
So as a reader if you are not into a BDSM read - detailed descriptions, (bondage) – use of toys, and other implements including - smokin kinky scenes, then this read is not for you.
Those who enjoy a little kink or two you will be happily surprised.
Kailin has touched BDSM throughout this story very mildly really but has increased the par with this instalment. I enjoyed seeing another Side of Sebastian and really like him as a caring character with needs like everyone. However he shows his differently in The Innocent and certainly - With love.
I read this instalment in one sitting - it kept me intrigued, stimulated and certainly dazed in many a scenes. I have to say this author delivers a sexy, kinky story with a storyline behind it - that shows through the pages.
It is a short read but will certainly have you awaiting book three
