That’s all Adam Steinbeck demands of his wife.
Thirty days in a remote cottage, doing everything he demands. After that, he’ll sign her divorce papers and give her complete ownership of their company.

She wants the business they built badly enough to go to the cottage for a month. Cut off ties to the world and do his bidding. She can submit to him with her body, but her heart will never yield.
She thinks this is his pathetic attempt to repair their marriage.

The way I feel about this book.... I can't even describe it. Why did I wait so long to read this? I'm addicted. I'm sleep deprived. I'm completely owned by this story.
The story starts with a letter for Adam. A letter for a divorce.
Diana loves her husband, but she knows that he's not being completely honest with her. Something is missing. Something is always in the back of his mind when they're making love, and she can't continue living with a shell.
When she finds out that Adam was previously involved in the BDSM scene, she feels a wave of emotions. Anger for his lies. Sadness for the distrust. Relief that her decision for a divorce is justified.
Adam can't deal with the idea of living without his wife. There is a reason why he doesn't want to involve her in his old world. But if he wants to leave the relationship in one piece, he needs to do it his way. He will break her.... dominate her... all in 30 days.
The first half of the book is in Adam's point of view. As it switches from the past and present, we get to experience how the relationship started and slipped. The second half is all in Diana's point of view. She explores Adam's world and unlocks doors to her own desires.
I love the story. I love the characters. Adam is a freaking sex god!!! C.D. Reiss is an incredible writer, and I'll be reading all her books soon. Book 2... HERE I COME!
