I just finished this great book! Do not judge by the cover! It is definitely not as provocative as the  cover portrays. This story is about a young woman in this story who fell in love with a man who was very sexy yet domineering. He romanced her with fine dining, travel and clothes but the one thing that she craved was love. She came from a very troubled childhood and was hungry to have a connection with someone. After two years of enduring his "Punishments" and "Lessons" she decided that it was time to run! She ran to an old friend from college, found a job, fell in love and most importantly found herself. Trying to overcome her horrible childhood and her controlling ex is not an easy task, but if you have the right people by you side anything is possible. Description:

Isabella “Izzy” McKenna just came out of a two year, well, she couldn’t really call it a relationship. It was more like two years of being dominated and controlled by a handsome, domineering and powerful man.

When she finally decides to leave him, after he finally pushes her too far, she revives her friendship with her best friend from college.

Little did Izzy know that rekindling her friendship would also throw her into an amazing loving relationship with a gorgeous fun, but at times jealous, bar owner named Z.

Will Izzy’s horrible childhood and past controlling relationship keep her from finally finding the love that she’s always searched for? Or will he ruin the love that is finally just in her grasp?

My Favorite Quotes:

"Sometimes promises are only as good as the action behind the promise. Other than that, promises are just that – promises, promises."

"But I want to change all that. I want to be there for you, for all that you went through. I want to be with you forever, Izzy. I love you so much. Izzy, I promise.”

"Sometimes life hands you a shit deal, but you’re the only one who can turn it around.”

Take a chance and read this book! It is definitely worth a read!
Let me know when you do!!!!!
