Smashwords book reviews by Ailin Chia

  • Tender Mercies on May 14, 2011

    I must say that this is actually one of the best BDSM themed novels I've had the fortune of reading. It was just beautiful to see the way Asher and Grace healed from their past trauma thanks to the presence of each other, and it was truly heart-warming to see the growth of a real BDSM relationship. I thought Grace's thoughts were beautifully described as well. She seemed so real, that what happened to her was truly heartbreaking to read through, as well as triumphant. It was also particularly educational because it touched in the difference between an abusive relationship as well as a proper BDSM relationship as well as the dangers of hooking up over the Internet. I really learnt a lot about BDSM thanks to this book, and I'd definitely recommend this book to BDSM novices. And I must say, this was very well edited as well. There were absolutely no typo errors! At the same time, there still could be some slight improvements. For starters, Lucas could stand to be more believable. It would have been interesting to see how he ended up so twisted. Plus, the healing process could be a little slower as well, with more details given over how both Grace and Asher developed. I guess the novel could be longer too, if more details were given. I truly enjoyed the book though. Sure, there could be some improvement, but the original is already almost perfect, and I would love to read more of this author's work.

    This book seemed so real; I felt as if was reading a biography. The characters were beautifully portrayed; they were so real, they seemed to be living flesh and blood.what I particularly loved was that every character seemed to be a work of love; each and every single one of them were flawed, yet there was some character trait that seemed endearing about them. While I couldn't help feeling that some characters were unnecessary, still, I could not hate any of them. In short, I think this book would be liked by everyone who is interested in family sagas, though parents and teenagers would be able to relate more to this.

    I found this book extremely fascinating. I've always been a sucker for BDSM stories that focus on the growing bond between the Dom/me and submissive, and this is certainly is one of those. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is interested in perusing a greater interest in BDSM, especially those who are interested in the Dom/me Sub relationship. Though it would be nice if there could one day be a story about a female Dom. This story is beautifully done, the characters are very engrossing, and the psychology behind it was really very interesting. An amazing job!
  • Hostile Witness, A Josie Bates Thriller on Aug. 11, 2011

    I love this book to bits; it was like going through a roller coaster ride, with all the plot twists and new evidences coming through. The ultimate whodunit was quite a shocker as well, As it was a conclusion I really did not expect. It was fun guessing to the end with all the clues given. This book was a real joy to read, and it'd definitely recommend it for any courtroom drama fans. I might not have been one before, but this book definitely converted me.
