Power Exchange (Power Exchange #1) by A.J. Rose

Power Exchange (Power Exchange, #1)Power Exchange by A.J. Rose

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

From the moment Detective Gavin DeGrassi steps into the world of BDSM to solve the brutal slaying of Dom George Kaiser, his course is not his own. Mesmerized by the context in which the victim lived and the images of the lifestyle seared into his soul, Gavin must find a way to navigate these unknown waters. With his personal life in upheaval due to marital trouble, and his professional life uncertain with the assignment of a new partner, Gavin needs all the help he can get understanding the case.

Enter Ben Haverson, a psychologist and a well known Dom. With Ben’s help as a consultant and attention to Gavin's own murky truths, Gavin delves deeper than he ever thought he would into the world of restraints and paddles. Forced to scrutinize  his true nature and his innermost desires, Gavin has a choice: keep the fear of submitting at bay, or dive in and solve the case with the knowledge he gains. When another victim is discovered, Gavin’s choice is made for him, and he’s pulled headlong into the deepest, most emotional journey of his life.


The first thing that grabs your attention is the cover and then boy does the book live up to the covers promise. It is a beautiful story of two people finding balance and love. I liked that Gavin's marriage imploded with no help from Gavin. The suspense element was also beautifully done I was swept along with the the whole package and it kept me on the edge of my seat. I loved that we got to see into a healthy BDSM relationship as it evolved and as Gavin learned how to be a sub. What made this so good was the love Ben and Gavin had and that there were no games they were honest with how they felt and it made for a very intense reading experience, one I will repeat with book 2!

  1. Have you read Safeword yet? I think you will enjoy it greatly. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed Power Exchange despite the kink subject.


Thank you for visiting I hope you come back soon.
