5 Star Review
This is book 4 in the hugely successful Quantum series and is the story of Hayden Roth and Addison York.
We were introduced to these characters in the very first book in the series and although I loved Addie from the first, I can’t say the same for Hayden. Initially he was a jerk, and I wasn’t fond of him. Although, he grew on me as the series progressed, it wasn’t until I read Rapturous that I really fell for him.
I particularly enjoy BDSM and was extremely interested to see where this story would lead. I have to say I was not disappointed. M.S. Force weaves a very engaging erotic BDSM story and I loved this book.
Addie has always harboured feelings for Hayden, the best friend of her boss Flynn. What she has no idea of is that Hayden has feelings for her too, a fact that he may have accidentally let out when he kissed her at the Oscars after winning Best Director.
After “the kiss” will Addie take a chance and try to create something with Hayden or will Hayden’s fears get in the way of exploring the special connection that these two so obviously share?
I really enjoyed reading the story from multiple points of view, not only by Hayden and Addie but also on occasion Natalie. It was great catching up with the other characters of Quantum and I cannot wait to read all their stories.
Will Hayden’s commitment as a Dom in the BDSM lifestyle and Addie’s complete naivety break them apart before they even get a chance to explore? Or will her commitment to her love for Hayden compel Addie to explore the lifestyle that she was oblivious in knowing was a part of not only Hayden’s life but also all their closest friends? You need to read Rapturous to find out.
I am excited to see what M.S. Force has in store in Ravenous for Jasper and Ellie. I highly recommend this book and the series. Although a stand-alone, I feel to get the “story” of the people who make up this group of Quantum people it would be best to read them in order. I know you won’t be disappointed.
