Truthfully I usually find West's books pretty hot, even when I'm disappointed otherwise. That's definitely the case here. The biggest problem is that the story jumps 2 months from the end of the first part, thus skipping pretty much every step of Cody's adjustment to life as a submissive. The story ends up being nothing more than a sexy vignette--Cody getting spanked and going to Jake's club. Given how short it is, it also wastes precious pages summarizing everything that happened in book 1. Jake is even less of a discernible character here--nothing more than a collection of "Dom" traits. Still, West knows how to craft a hot scene, so as PWP I guess it works.
