When the words "sadomasochism and bondage" appeared not far into this book, I was worried. A little bondage, a little swatting - okay - but this book had the darker stuff written all over it. Quite honestly, I almost put it down, but I decided to push ahead for two reasons...
1. I knew at any time I could stop reading, delete it from my Kindle, and never think of it again.
2. I have yet to read a bad Mari Carr book.Rough Cut is
darker, but Ty's love for Gwen is very apparent. Even though he's controlling things in the bedroom, she holds the power. Gwen's struggle to accept her darker desires is handled quite perfectly. I thought Ty was considerate of her throughout the story and never once did I think he crossed a line. Rough Cut
is a novella, but it takes place over the course of a few months plus a fabulous epilogue! For me, this will be a one-time read because there wasn't much else to it.
