Suzie Foster is "under consideration" with a dominant by the name of Charles but after a particularly scary moment in a BDSM club, she's quickly blocking him from her life. At least online. Enter brothers, Simon and Alistair, and suddenly things are looking up for all those pleasurable reasons.
There's a lot going on in the story. Scarlett Flame does a good job setting up the story and the transition to suspense when Suzie is kidnapped juxtaposed against her much more idealized time with Simon and Alistair, works well.
So, we have a decent amount of kink (yay), a ménage with two very yummy looking brothers (double yay), a bit of darkness (oh), and a happily ever after (more like for now). That said, this story really didn't work for me and I wish it did because it has all the components I enjoy in stories like this. For one, and this may only be me, I couldn't engage in the story emotionally. For me, the content around the BDSM was too instructional instead of letting it flow more naturally. This is one of those stories where I found it far too telling and not enough showing, as it read more like diary entries. Several times while reading the story, I grew impatient and wanted to skip ahead but forced myself to keep reading hoping that I would better immerse myself in the story or at the very least, develop more of an emotional attachment to the characters. However, that never happened. Given how instructional many of the components of kink were, that created a certain lack of believability at Simon's earnest desire to have Suzie move in over the holiday break. The dichotomy didn't balance particularly since I didn't find the insta-attraction to be obvious.
Overall, I found the story okay. It's definitely not on any list of read again. That said, I can't emphasize enough that this is how I feel. The components of the story are there but it simply didn't resonate with me and the ending happened too fast leaving me wondering if there's supposed to be more.
FROM WILLING SUB TO ENSLAVED CAPTIVE by Scarlett Flame is Book 1 in what I assume is a new Captive's series.
