When Trish's husband of almost 30 years announces that he's leaving her because she's "boring," she sets out to find an adventure. Her attempt to drink her heartbreak away drops her onto a handsome gentleman who invites her to have an adventure, and Trish can't help but say yes.

She embarks on that adventure, but her path keeps crossing with that of another - Clint Winstead, a Dominant at the club, Bliss, and the one person in the place who seems to despise her. And that's fine with Trish. After all, there are plenty of other Doms there who want to play.

But when an annual event at the club throws Trish and Clint together for two weeks, both of them are horrified, not by the pairing, but by the feelings they're trying hard to deny. As the time passes, it's harder and harder to deny what they know is true - that is, until one nearly-tragic incident that almost changes both their lives irreparably. And when Trish realizes that continuing on with her commitment could cost her the ultimate - her life - she knows that it has to end. But does it?

Trish is the queen of second chances. But this second chance might just come at a price too high to pay. A little adventure is a good thing, but perhaps she's gotten far more adventure than she can handle.

I had several issues with this book, #1 was the narrator who I felt sounded more like my grandmother which just put me off a little.  Seeing as how I am older than the main character I don't believe I am that naive not do I sound that old.  #2 would be that there is very little plot and little on character development.  I liked the story but there wasn't much to hold on to.  

However there was some good in this book as well.  There is a great deal of good BDSM information in this book and description of toys etc. Plus the body positive side of bdsm shines through in that many of the subs in the club do not have perfect bodies but find their needs met and people who find them attractive.  

The whole Trish got in a fight with her husband went out got drunk and in the span of a week decided she was going to "train" as a sub and have sex with random men thing was just a bit too much for me.  I am willing to suspend my disbelief to a point but this just jumped the shark for me. While she was living with Clint for the trial 2 week period I found that you got nuggets of who these characters were however they both only seemed like shells and needed to be fleshed out so much more.  I wouldn't say this book is great I feel like it needs work  and I will give book 2 a try and see if it reads better in kindle format than audio.
