A devastating plague has changed the world's society. In rebuilding the population, the government has deemed that all women are to be nothing more than slaves, bought and paid for, with one purpose - to breed.
Prima is such a woman, sold by her father to Joseph, a man who intends to get full use of her in every conceivable way.
Truly, the world as we know it has changed. But as Prima learns to adjust to her life and the harshness of Joseph's punishments, as well as the tenderness he occasionally exhibits, will she discover that she feels more for this demanding man than she is willing to admit?

Xtreme Delusions Review Blog
What drew me to this story in the first place was the dystopian setting and the BDSM romance aspects indicated in the blurb as well as the narrator. I enjoyed the narration. The narrator has great voice inflection that kept me coming back to finish this story even when I may not have if I had been reading it myself.
I have taken some time to think about why the story itself irked me on occasion considering I do enjoy BDSM romance. I can't say that it is the non-consensuality because this is the basis of slavery, to begin with, and a given in the context of this storyline. So, I didn't have that as an expectation. I don't believe it was the actual punishments either even when I thought they were at times unrealistic. I believe what rubbed me in various parts of the story were the humiliation aspects. I know though from experience that humiliation actually does trip some submissives triggers. Needless to say, it's not my cup of tea whether from the giving or receiving end.
All that being said, the story is well written and the narration was excellent. Had the story not tripped a few of my own personal triggers I would have enjoyed it much more.
I like BDSM but this was waaay to extreme for me, and a bit sick really, I managed to listen to about 30 minutes and that was enough. Will return this book.
