Heather was in Vegas on the hunt for her sister who only left her the cryptic email message - find me in the afterglow.  And although she couldn't find out much information about the place she finds herself outside Club Hades.  When she gains access she is in shock.  What was her sister doing hanging around an S&M dungeon?

Zaid found a woman in his club looking for her sister.  Nothing good would come from her searching for her sister and coming under Eric's radar.  And nothing but harm would come her way if she continued questioning the members of his club.  Eric and those associated with him had been banned from this club.  So he had someone show her to the door.

Tonight ended with the monthly auction where those who wished could auction themselves off for 24 hours to the highest bidder.  All proceeds would go to a local abuse shelter as an anonymous donation.  The last person up for auction should not be there.

Zaid has plans to exact his revenge against Eric.  He warned her to stay away, but she just walked into his hands.  

I absolutely loved this book!  The storyline kept me captivated from the very start.  The suspense of how the revenge would play out.  I love all the characters.   Heather with her willingness to do anything to protect her sister.  Zaid thinks he's a monster, but in truth does everything in his power to protect Heather and the others.

I highly recommend this book.  It is full of action and intrigue, but also sexy in a dominant way.  Another great book from Audrey Rush!

Mara was in the doctoral program in college and had chosen Dr. Evans's class since he was the only professor not signed for the Crossing Collaboration Contest.   A contest she needed to win above all else.  She had to prove that despite her younger age she belongs here.

Dr. Nate Evans was known as the billionaire professor and also so disagreeable no one wanted to work with him.  But, Mara was determined. 

When she found out he was attending an S&M dungeon event she decided to shock him by showing up.  She not only showed up but volunteered for his spanking demo.

Nate decided that if she wanted to partner with him for this contest he wasn't going to make it easy for her.  He gave her a massive stack of essays to grade and told her she was now his TA, which meant she had to give up one of her other doctoral classes.  She had to prove she was serious. 

Despite him never getting involved with his students, their major age difference, and her never being exposed to BDSM Nate was having a hard time resisting Mara.  He couldn't lose control again.  He had already ruined and almost killed another woman.  He refused to do that again and his fear is that he would put Mara in danger.

I absolutely loved this book.  The storyline blends well with Zaid and Heather's story and takes off from where Nate was introduced to us in His Toy.  I loved Mara's determination in how far she would go to overcome her insecurities that everyone thought she was too young and didn't belong in the doctoral program. 

This isn't a book of a much older man using his authority to take advantage of a woman.  I love how Nate fought and fought his attraction to Mara and tried to deter and make her hate him at all opportunities. 

The characters are full of depth and feelings.  And the author's written descriptions have me walking the streets of Las Vegas and sitting through lectures.   I highly recommend not only this book and series but Audrey Rush. 

Hazel had met Eric at the Great Pleasures Palace Casino and what she thought was a friendly, flirtatious bet had actually been a debt.  Although she didn't mind being one of his many house slaves because she was into pain.  And it was better than the alternative of jail and the consequences of disobedience of Eric's demands could mean death.

Hazel was at an Afterglow party.  Weird it was at someone's home instead of the club, but that meant better access to restrooms.  The stupid guy had broken her one rule.  Not her face.  Bruises anywhere else, but not her face.  As she was trying to clean herself off the guy had raided her purse and stole the bag of cocaine Eric gave her and instructed her to take it all.  When she left the restroom he was dead on the floor - the baggie beside him.

Grant was 6'6" of pure muscle and lead security advisor to Zaid.   Per Zaid's instructions, Hazel was put into an underground cell along with the other prisoners.  Other followers of Eric.  When her sister came to Club Hades searching for her missing sister, Zaid had him move her from the cell to a cage in the basement of Zaid's home.

The whole way walking from the cells in the woods to the house she tried to convince him of her innocence.   That Dean had stolen the drugs from her purse.  Drugs that Eric had intended for her.  But, Grant couldn't trust her.  All of Eric's followers were liars and killers.

This book was amazing!   I really didn't care for Hazel in the first two books because she just came off as a selfish brat who blamed everyone for her problems.  It was nice getting to see the true Hazel.  I just love Grant.  He was trying to do what he thought was best for Hazel.   

The characters are wonderful and I love how the whole series storyline wrapped up.  The Afterglow series would make an awesome Passionflix series!  Highly recommend!  Love Audrey Rush!
