Hurt Me, Heal Me

Dante's Purgatory, #1

Caitlin Bennett is a young and innocent woman when she gets involved in with the man that ends up her Master. After his death, Caitlin discovers that the only way for her to orgasm is with extreme pain. Not many Dom’s are willing to inflict that kind of pain. Caitlin meets Paul who sparks her interest even though he is not willing to inflict that level of pain on her.

Paul Nelson is a Dom who enjoys inflicting erotic pain but not the level of pain that Caitlin needs. Paul is a hot and sexy Dom who is sure he can help her by conditioning her to orgasm in a different way. Paul comes across as a responsible Dom in the way he speaks and instructs Caitlin on what he wants and why.

The connection between Paul and Caitlin is very intense. Paul does a good job of trying to help Caitlin. He comes up with a great plan that puts even himself to the test. The sex scenes were scorching. It was easy to see and feel the characters emotions before, during, and after the sex scenes.

Hurt Me, Heal Me is the first book in the Dante’s Purgatory series by Sayara St. Clair. I found this book very well written with a though provoking plot. The main and secondary characters were fascinating. The ending was a bit predictable but the book is more about Caitlin’s journey. The biggest issue I had with the book was it was a bit dry a times. Overall, this was a great book and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.


Book Blurb for Hurt Me, Heal Me

After the death of her Master, Caitlin Bennett discovers years of sadistic cruelty at his hands have made her a slave to pain. To orgasm, Cait needs the type of extreme agony few responsible Doms are willing to inflict, especially Doms like Paul Nelson. Offering nearly everything she craves, Paul’s perfect—except for his aversion to the whip.

Paul refuses to hurt Cait, instead attempting to retrain her with patience and trust. But the longer Cait suffers from a lack of release, the more she’s convinced her mind and body are irrevocably conditioned. And Paul has precious little time to convince her otherwise. Waiting in the wings is a newbie Dom determined to have Cait for his own…who’s learning the whip just for her.

She’ll soon have to choose—the man who can give her what she wants? Or the man who can give her what she needs?
