What makes this book begin to have us go further into Abbe and Nathaniel is that we have gotten to a point where we feel safe in their relationship and now the waters are getting muddled.
Tara Sue Me is adding a new dimension to the marriage of Abbe and Nathaniel. That dimension is control and power shifts. Now we have children in the picture and less time for play but we see a good balance in the intimacy between Abbe and Nathaniel.
Nathaniel has always been supportive of Abbe and her pursuits so when this new adventure for her begins in this book we see this still holds true. Abbe becomes more confident in who she is and begins to want more. More play with Nathaniel but also more fantasies. Nathaniel takes this to a new level. He displays a more carnal desire for control and in some ways this turns Abbe on and in others she is turned off. What we do see though is a power play for domination. Domination of emotions and intimacy. Abbe gets more bold and daring in speaking out whereas Nathaniel is becoming more controlling and tries to reign this in.
We see them looking at a new venture in their exploration of the lifestyle. The scenes are still very hot but for me the most intimate scenes are when they talk to one another. They are creating moments that bring them closer in mind, body and soul by trying to understand one another and where they are with things.
This shows us two sides to Nathaniel. We see the kind mellow one who is loving and amazing but we also see the Dominant who wants more. With Abbe we see a more confident woman who knows where she stands and what she wants. They are constantly negotiating their playtime and life so they can be closer to one another.
This is a fast paced steamy look at the relationship of Nathaniel and Abbe after a few years of marriage and with children. We see the dynamics change as Abbe forges a new venture and gets a stronger voice in their relationship while Nathaniel struggles to find a foot by exercising more control. A nice continuation in the series and where it leaves off you know there are more fun times and exploration to happen with these two.
