The story begun in the initial Quantum Trilogy picks up on Oscar night after Academy Award-winning director Hayden Roth kisses the woman he desires above all others, even though he knows she can never be his. Addison York craves her boss’s best friend, Hayden, but he has never given her an ounce of encouragement—until tonight when he kissed her after winning the Oscar. Was that kiss the start of something or another in a long line of frustrations where Hayden is concerned?
Something is keeping him from acting on the attraction that simmers between them, and Addie is determined to find out what it is. But when she stumbles upon the secret that Hayden, Flynn and her other close friends have kept from her, will she allow hurt feelings to get in the way of true love? When Hayden won’t share his BDSM lifestyle with her, Addie decides to conduct her own research. Will she be intrigued or repulsed? And what will Hayden do when he finds out how she’s been spending her evenings?
NOTE: RAPTUROUS is an erotic storyline with graphic scenes of BDSM rope play, spanking, bondage, anal (including butt plugs etc) and oral sex, as well as domination and submission.
REVIEW: RAPTUROUS is the fourth installment in M.S. Force’s contemporary, adult QUANTUM erotic, BDSM, romance series focusing on Academy Award winning director Hayden Roth, and personal assistant Addison York. Hayden and Addison were first introduced in the original QUANTUM trilogy featuring actor Flynn Godfrey and teacher Natalie Bryant. RAPTUROUS can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty but I recommend reading the series in order for backstory and history. Any important information from the previous installments is revealed where necessary. RAPTUROUS begins following the events of VICTORIOUS wherein Hayden’s movie just earned several Academy Awards including best picture, best director and best actor for Flynn Godfrey.
Told from dual first person points of view (Hayden and Addison) and a couple short chapters from Natalie’s POV, RAPTUROUS follows the friends to lovers relationship between Hayden and Addison. Addison is Flynn Godfrey’s PA, and has been in love with Hayden Roth for many years. A celebratory kiss from Hayden at the Oscar ceremonies meant something more for our leading couple, and Addison vows to seduce the man with whom she had fallen in love.
Hayden Roth is a Dominant and knows that to fall in love with Addison would mean losing more than a friend. Addison is unaware of Hayden’s kinky side and his affinity for rope play, and she has never experienced the BDSM lifestyle. Hayden needs to be in control at all times both in and out of the bedroom, and he has no plans to ever reveal that side of his life to Addison York. Revealing his lifestyle to Addison could mean losing the woman he loves. What ensues is Addison’s need to prove that she is willing to do anything including taking a walk on the wild side. When Hayden refuses to bring Addison into his BDSM lifestyle, Addison is determined to learn everything she can, up close and personal, from another source.
There is plenty of back and forth; yin and yang; and the push and pull of want and need. While Addison declares her love for Hayden, our hero continues to give mixed signals about his feelings and emotions for Addison York. The $ex scenes are erotic, and intimate. The BDSM play between Addison and Hayden is provocative and intense. Addison is a quick learner as it pertains to Hayden’s wants and needs.
All of the previous story line characters play a secondary and supporting role including Natalie and Flynn; friends and coworkers at Quantum-Sebastian, Kristian, Emmett, Leah and Marlowe; Addison’s father Simon York ; Hayden and Flynn’s friend and business partner Jasper Autry, and Flynn’s sister Ellie. Jasper and Ellie’s story is told next in RAVENOUS. We are also introduced to Devon Black-the owner of the BDSM Club Black Vice.
RAPTUROUS is a provocative story line with impassioned characters, and sensational $ex scenes. The premise is engaging and emotional; the characters are dynamic and engaging; the romance is compelling with a little bit of kink on the side. I haven’t had the chance to read the original trilogy-I am looking forward to one day catching up with Natalie and Flynn.
