Review:True North by Tamsen Parker

Four months ago, Slade Lewis got to fulfill his wildest, long-repressed BDSM fantasies during a one-night stand. Since then, getting more has been the only thing on his mind.

When Slade manages to earn the keys to Reyes Walter’s kinky kingdom, he finds himself face-to-face with none other than Pressly Allwyn, the pearl-bedecked love of his life whom he pushed into divorce six years ago.

Now she’s back, and the fetish he was afraid would drive them apart instead draws them together. They indulge in their common kink together, but past hurts and old insecurities complicate any relationship outside their erotic exploits. Caught between the worlds of hot-button politics and even hotter bedroom games, Pressly and Slade will have to decide how far they’re willing to go for a second chance at happily ever after.

True North is out now!

What I thought about True North

Okay. I seriously devoured this book.  I really love this series because it not only has very hot men, it also has brilliant career women that embrace their sexuality. For me, that's what makes it the most appealing and steamy!

After a divorce neither of them wanted, Slade and Pressly separately find their pleasure with the help of Reyes, datemaker for his kinky clients and tutor to those new to the world of kink.  

It's Slade that has the most difficulty accepting the things he likes to do, and he's pretty clueless about how that contributed to the destruction of his marriage. When he runs into his wife at The Black House, the passion Pressly and Slade had for each other hasn't died out...yet.

I loved that this book was from Slade's point of view.  I think that really made it for me. It was lovely to get inside his head and realize how much he still loved his ex-wife.  That made for a very sweet love story.

While Pressly is interested, she's also been burned by Slade -- and she's going to protect her heart. Engaging in BDSM scenes is one thing, giving her heart away is something entirely different.  My heart hurt for both of them.  I just loved the emotional punch of this story.

This is a great addition to The Compass series. The writing is great, the emotions are fine tuned.  I would have liked to see some of Slade's training in more detail though, especially since the reader only gets his point of view. (which I loved)
