Author Bio: BlueCat Review: Mary is an exceptionally complex and emotionally engaging character. She’s so fascinating and enjoyable to read because of her multiple dimensions. She can be cold yet sympathetic at different times. Bas starts off with a lot to lose, which makes him sympathetic in the beginning of the story. He’s in way over his head, making him a sort of “every man” in a “fish out of water” setting. The pacing is strong. There’s never a dull moment and the story moves quickly and effortlessly from beginning to end. There aren’t any tangent scenes or unnecessary subplots. It’s strongly focused on the characters that matter. It’s a very simplistic and fairly original plot. Although it has a slight "50 Shades of Gray" feel to it, it’s not as graphic or gratuitous. This story is more focused on character rather than shock value. It’s incredibly intriguing from beginning to end. ----------------------- Karen Willoughby is a former journalist and editor who lived and worked in Europe for over a decade.
