Ava Webber has had some bad relationships but she is done with all of those. She wants to explore her needs using Serve an exclusive BDSM nightclub. The one stipulation she does have is she does not want to know who the man is. Nolan Hart makes sure Serve’s clients get what they want. However when he meets Ava, he decides to fulfill her wishes himself. As they get closer they form a friendship. Ava wants more and so does Nolan, the one issue is that Ava has no idea her mystery man and Nolan are the same person.
The beginning of the story leaves you intrigued. At the end of the first chapter, I was eager to know more. The author did a good job of drawing the reader in to her world. She did a great job of making it very realistic. The pace of the story was varied at time from being a bit slow at some points and fast is others. The main characters and the secondary characters were stimulating and convincing. I enjoyed that both Ava and Nolan were not perfect and that each of them had faults that they had to battle making them more realistic.
The point of view alternated between Ava and Nolan, giving the reader a glimpse inside both characters. The changing point of view was done with care so the reader did not get lost or repeat story lines. The main conflict of the story is the relationship between Nolan and Ava. I liked the conflict kept the story moving along in a realistic and believable way. The characters seemed to fit the story. The level of conflict was perfect any more or less would have detracted from the overall story line. The dialogue between the characters was honest and unique. The characters voice matched the setting and their overall personality. I liked that I was kept guessing as to how it would work out right until the very end. I hope we get to see these characters again in the future.
