The paranormal mystery in this had a ton of potential for a story. Unfortunately, I couldn't get past Corey's relationship actions that made up an equal amount of the story. Ethan had expressed concerns about possible cheating - so, what does Corey do - first opportunity he gets he cheats. And, doesn't use a condom - either time. Apparently, Ethan's concerns were justified. I also felt that the BDSM elements were twisted. We are left with Corey feeling ashamed about his BDSM cravings. The book just didn't work for me.
