Savannah and Roman shared a past relationship five years before. However, after experiencing more than just a bit of “play”, they split up. There was a horrible betrayal that left more than physical scars on Savannah, and now she has crossed paths with Roman, her betrayer. Can Savannah and Roman work through the past to find their HEA, or will Savannah continue to find her own means of dealing with that experience?
Betrayed by Love was a dark book that needed a bit more fleshing out for me. I still can NOT get past that form of betrayal. It would seem that Roman should not have trusted a stranger with Savannah in a relationship that has trust as the very foundation. At the core of Roman’s betrayal, for me, seemed to be the fact that what he did was a selfish act cloaked in unselfishness. However, he wanted more than just a bit of bedroom play, he seemed to want a lifestyle of BDSM and didn’t tell Savannah that either. He seemed too trusting of the guy who broke Savannah and all too willing to hand her over to him in that situation in Betrayed by Love.
I could understand the duplicity involved in Betrayed by Love, but the ramifications that she now deals with daily….will she ever heal? There needed to be more on that than the simple love will conquer all ending. At times, I felt that his betrayal was treated more like being impolite than what it truly was. Betrayed by Love just didn’t work for me.
