"Not every master is the same; there are no hard and fast rules to the dominant and submissive relationship."That quote I totally agree with. The odd thing is that Stefan contradicted it throughout the entire rest of the book. He talked endlessly (and I do mean endlessly) about all the "Rules" like they were written down on stone tablets somewhere.Renee is upset when her boyfriend tells her she is a bad lover. She decides that becoming a slave is the way to win him back. Why? I never could figure that out.Stefan runs classified ads. We didn't actually see it but apparently it was something like "I can make you the perfect slave in 9 days or your money back. No posers." Which is quite a claim because he had never had a Master/Slave relationship of his own. He seemed to be something of an accomplished trainer... or at least that is what he tells us.My favorite moment was actually when Renee took control of her own destiny.I didn't realize when I started this but this actually seems to be the first of four books (so far) featuring the same characters.
