BOOK REVIEW: "The Devil's Gate" by Rue Volley

Curiosity can be a dangerous thing. In Abigail Watson's case, it nearly ended her life.
After a brush with death, Abigail is reminded of just how short life can be...then she meets Jack Landon, the mysterious heir to the Landon fortune and her savior from a certain death. Jack's needs are very defined, and his ability to seduce with ease draws Abigail into his dark world. One taste of him on her lips and she is consumed with a desire, a willingness to submit and let him take the gift that she has protected for so long.

I received an advance copy of TDG from the author in exchange for an honest review.

The latest release from erotica author (and talented artist) Rue Volley is not a typical erotica novel whatsoever. But I wouldn't expect anything else from Hot Ink Press!
With your typical erotica, you usually get straight up sex right off the bat. Sexy girls and lusty guys abound. Well, you do get a very lusty man in Jack Landon. He's sexy, dashing and mysterious. But he's also got a lot of baggage that is deeper than the normal leading man carries. I enjoyed learning more about him as the book went on.
Abigail I absolutely loved. She's a very relatable character: smart, sweet and honest. She knows what she wants and doesn't want. She willingly gives Jack control, but doesn't give up her sense of self.
This book is about bondage, about giving up control, and Abigail has a lot to give, more than most other leading ladies ever do. The story shows what submissives who are just discovering life in the bondage scene go through, but Abigail's subdrop is different, because she is different. In fact, it takes more than half of the book for sex to actually happen.
You, as a reader, don't miss it as much as you might think. This book proves that you don't need constant, repetitive sex to make it a great erotica novel. Everything in this book is erotic, from stitching up a wound to a simple kiss. You'll find yourself turned on by the littlest things.
That's what great erotica writing is: the ability to turn the reader on with every single word. I love, love, love this book. I think Rue did a great job with the characters, the plot and the very essence of the story. BDSM is more than whips and chains, much more, and she really captured the emotions behind the scenes.
New to erotica? A longtime fan of the genre? Read this book!

5/5--a unique BDSM erotic book!
