Kitty Thomas writes the type of stories that make you wonder about your reading choices, in the same way her heroine(s) wonder about their discovery of their own dark/submissive needs. Then you stop questioning and just get pulled into the story. It's disturbing and not the hearts and flowers, velvet wrist cuffs and silk scarf type BDSM story. Aspects of it will hit hot-buttons for some. Especially the epilogue. I kinda knew what was coming, though and wanted to see how it played out. Looking forward to her next book.
