Securing It All

Securing It All - Livia Grant Security it all is the follow up to Wanting it all. Markus and Brianna start off the story in a continuation of their broken marriage. As the two of them finally communicate and work towards repairing their relationship. Whilst their kinky life is taking off, the story shifts its focus over to Tiffany and Lukus.

Tiffany is Brianna's best friend. Lukus is Markus' best friend. Tiffany's experience watching Brianna's abuse from her previous boyfriend totally scares her away from BDSM. This is not a bad thing, unless she's interested in Lukus who owns a BDSM club.

The BDSM in this story is okay. Unlike the first book, this one delves a little too much in to psychological problems which is not a turn on for me. Not really interested in those getting into BDSM with problems and presenting it as BDSM will fix it. Does it happen? Possibly, but few and far between.

From a character perspective, this one should have worked great. Tiffany is the one who had a good head on her shoulders. Lukus is the well adjusted, sensitive yet sadistically delightful dominant. As the cover is peeled back for these two, they start coming apart. The chemistry between the two isn't as fiery as anticipated which made it not as enjoyable. On the plus side, the open questions in the first book are tied up and answered. The ending feels a bit rushed too. Overall, it was still an okay read.
