I've never read a novel about this syndrome so I was really excited to give it a go. And it's such a surprising read!
This naughty fantasy is as enticing as original. Can you imagine a game between university students consisting in simulating women being pursued and taken by men? It's a bold premise that works well as a provoking, consensual non-consent start-off for some erotic and harmless fun. The edge comes when an innocent bystander gets mixed in the private game, and then fear, excitement and real feelings get caught in the web of illicit desires.
I think it's a very appealing concept for a fantasy come true in a romantic yet naughty way. It's well written and the first two chapters are really well orchestrated. That's when we meet the characters, and how the misunderstanding happens.
The intimate scenes are exquisitely pleasurable. One hot kiss at the stables had me all riled up in no time. And the encounters come in plenty bursts of passion. Succulent, I'd say.
I really enjoyed their game of cat and mouse. Each needs to control the situation either to escape or to survive the consequences of an unwillingly committed crime. Beyond their control is the unbridled lust and their need to bond.
The last part is full of dramatic realizations, crazy tests of submission, and dirty, sweaty, steamy reconciliations that you just can't miss. This story is half mad, half scorching hot tryst, with light BDSM and a couple of ideas that you might want to try yourself. A wonderful entertainment!

Psychology postgrad Evelyn Maier eschews men and sex. Her joy’s in work and travel—like her upcoming trip to Africa. But her vacation is cancelled when she inadvertently enters a dangerous, illicit sex game. Without warning, she finds herself ensnared by a smoldering Dominant who pulls orgasms from her nearly against her will.
Mason Brady has suppressed his Dominant nature ever since a disastrous relationship that left him broken. But when his brother convinces him to rejoin The Chase, the sprawling game of domination and submission Mason founded years before, he relishes the role. Until he captures Evelyn, an unwitting passerby. Now Evelyn is crying rape, and Mason is racked by guilt. He’s certain he’ll convince her it was a misunderstanding, but he must hold her until she trusts him. Evelyn has her own angle: she’ll play along with Mason’s kidnapping until she’s fooled him into believing she’s forgiven him. Then she’ll seek her revenge once he releases her. In the ensuing game of cat and mouse, they ride the lines between capture, consent, and love.
