Not wanting to corrupt Olivia, Cameron arranges for her to see him with another woman to push her away. Aroused but ultimately betrayed, Olivia moves on. Twelve years later, they reconnect, and Olivia harbors a secret. Cameron seduces and dominates her, but rather than waiting for her to come to him of her own accord, he betrays her burgeoning trust by ferreting out her secret. She casts him off.
Olivia loses herself in work and releases her pain at Club Pleasure. Cameron is a member, unbeknownst to Olivia, but has retreated from the lifestyle. He accompanies his friend there nearly a year later, and when he sees her with one of the house Doms, he crumbles at the sight. Pleasure's owner, Patrick, offers them both an innovative opportunity to retrieve and rebuild their relationship. No guarantees, but perhaps pride and betrayal will be overcome and love will carry the day.

MADNESS is an amazing story and I couldn't put this book down. Allyson Young has really shown in this story how strained a relationship can be.
Cameron is a Dom and when he was younger, he pushed away the only woman he's ever cared about by being caught with another woman. Feeling betrayed, Olivia moves on. Twelve years go by and neither of them has forgotten each other. When they meet again, sparks fly and Cameron is intent on dominating Olivia. Their relationship is hot and intense. When Cameron betrays her trust once more, all hope is lost until he finds her at Club Pleasure. Cameron will do anything to claim the woman he loves.
I loved this story. Cameron came over as being arrogant and at times a bit of an ass. What I loved was how Allyson Young shows his development. In the beginning you get his betrayal because Olivia is young and innocent and he doesn't want to hurt her. When they meet, you get his arrogance and demands of a Dom. After he screws up by digging into her past, I loved the fact Olivia gave him the boot. It was so unexpected and refreshing to see a heroine do that. She pushes him away. I for one was happy to read it, the way she feels betrayed made me well up. You really get her feelings and the author wrote the scene perfectly.
For me, the year later when Cameron sees Olivia was the more gut-wrenching scene. You see how much their time apart has affected her. Not only do you see this inside Olivia but it helps to see the struggle inside Cameron. Personally, at the end I didn't want Cameron to get her because of what he did, however, you really do see how vital it is for them to be together.
The chemistry between these two characters was wonderful. They have a spark flying between them, which I always find magical. I really can't express how much I loved this book. Allyson Young has really captured me with this book and I hope to read more of her Club Pleasure series.
An emotional, well written, heartfelt story that will have you annoyed, happy and downright pleased with the ending. I highly recommend this read.
