*contains minor spoilersWow I loved this storyMatthew is much different from the happy go lucky carefree man *minor spoilersWow I loved this storyMatthew is much different from the happy go lucky carefree man was in the last book and who wouldn t be He s learned that his ntire life was based on a lie Friends are nowhere to be found business associates have not only abandoned him but some are out to destroy him not only financially but totally and utterly destroy him the man He s got a lot to deal with to say the least and all because his mother couldn t keep her legs together Thankfully we don t have to deal with her sorry ass in this bookPatience has uite the story of her own to tell one that we were not ven given a clue to in Passion Early on I had decided she was weak needing to be told what to do handled tc Wow was I wrong By the nd of the book I had shed than a few tears for her anguish loss and loneliness I came to see her as an incredibly strong woman who had to deal with all that life threw at her and do it all on her own I admire her greatlyAgain Lisa Valdez gave us a story about two people who would have probably spent their ntire lives alone had they not found ach other I love how they fit so well together how they complement one another Matthew and Patience are both amazing characters fully developed people whom I became totally invested in We also get to revisit a few of the arlier players Aunt Matty Mark Passion and Prim all make appearances just to.

Name a few And if I m correct we meet Prim s happily The Shadow Reader ever after in this bookThe sexual theme in Passion was take me open for me and the theme for Patience is submit In their first scene together Patience is given a small glimpse into what life with Matthew would be like It was a hot scene and Injoyed it but after they had been together a few times I became worried that this book would cross boundaries but after they had been together
*A Few Times I *few times I worried that this book would cross boundaries wasn t ready to cross While it did stretch the limits of my comfort zone I can t say that I found any part of it repulsive nor did anything really make me cringe well maybe I cringed a little bit but it is my comfort zone we re talking about and I know that by many standards Patience is very tame Let me see if I can better Cinderella Unmasked (Fairytale Fantasies explain what I mean without giving away details A year or so ago I read a book where the female lead went looking for this particular male who was a known DOM He had uite the reputation and she wanted only the best for herxperimental journey into submission Anyway one vening she failed to follow an order he gave her and she shows up naked at a dinner party he was giving Her punishment was that for the ntire vening she had to stay at his side naked on hands and knees never allowed to sit down or stand up When he was seated she had to kneel at his feet or lay curled up like a dog At one point she was placed in the middle of the room on hands and knees where *Everyone Watched While One *watched while one spanked her as she was giving another man a blow job Patience is like a kid s fairytale compared to that However it will still make some people uncomfortable and I totally get that which is why I m trying to give as much warning as I can without giving away details It s important to note that Matthew s sexuality is what it is not because of what happened with his mother but he states that it s always been a part of him He s not cruel or abusive and at no time is Patience forced to do something she doesn t want to She can say no at any time which is part of why the story didn t turn me off arly on I knew that she was ok with the ntire arrangement and that Matthew cared deeply for her and nothing on his part was done out of angerThe story while a continuation of the mess that was revealed in Passion actually didn t dwell too much on it It was about how Matthew was trying to stay afloat in a world where being a bastard was almost if not as bad as being a thief a whore or a murderer With Patience s gentle ways and guidance and her unconditional love Matthew learns what it really means to be a rich man and it has nothing to do with monetary wealth The uestion that had to be answered was could he set aside his bitterness and all of his plans for revenge in order to be worthy of being the kind of man he knew Patience deservedThe bottom lineThis book is a little motionally and sexually intense than Passion I found it hard to put down and like Mark and Passion did Matthew and Patience have given me much to think about I m looking forward to visiting with them again soon in the next bookSexual content Light bondage heavy spanking dominationsubmission No anal no m nage no display or humiliation Note Lisa Valdez answered some uestions about why there was such a long time span between Passion and Patience and gave us some information about her 3rd novel in the uartet Primros. Rkly handsome half brother of the Earl of Langley plots his resurrection and his revenge Betrayed and abandoned by the women he believed loved him he swears never again to be controlled by love But despite his vow he is unable to resist Patience whose strength and self reliance mask a need that he is perfectly suited to fulfull. I read Passion about 4 years ago while searching for really good smutty romance I immediately fell in love with it After reading romance for almost 20 years it s amazing to find a romance author that can surprise you and surprise me Lisa Valdez didYesterday Lisa surprised me againI m not a huge fan of the the domsubmissive genre I can dip a toe in but I get bored with the ndless spankings and the nipple clamps and the shut up and do as I say I d also read all the rumors of why it had taken so long for Patience to come out I was worried that it would be a watered down version of the very things I loved about Passion I xpected same ole same oleYet Lisa Valdez didn t fail me at allYes there is spanking yes there is language that would cause drunken sailors on leave to run for the soap to wash out your mouth but it was handled in a way that was reallysexy And oddly sweetTo the point that when the Patience and Matthew actually have Lisa Valdez Vanilla Sex Lisa s vanilla sex is still about 3 steps above ven your smuttiest of smut I kind of missed all the stuff that had come before itI got to know Mark and Passion so well over the years I ve reread their book so many times I will
*always think of *think of as the top and the best Yet I read Patience in one night and blushed and laughed and njoyed it thoroughly For all those out there that have Oh My God, What a Complete Aisling eagerly been waiting for this book and that includes all the women who were Outraged and Made uncomfortable by the graphic content of Passion yet could still uote verbatimntire passages of the book I think you ll Monsieur Pain enjoy this one too OK I had a hard time deciding what to rate this book that s why it took me so long to write this review I have just recently reread Passion and LOVED it very muchven the second time around I was wanting to get my hands on Patience badly after waiting 5 years for the book Those of you who know my tastes in books know that I like my books steamy hot I d rather read romantica than rotica though I must say that I don t care too much for submission domination and pain for pleasure type of books I personally just don t get it I had a hard time with feeling the love between Patience and Matt during all of the sex scenes That s what they were doing having sex not making love Now on the other hand I must say I felt the love they had for ach other in the normal day to day living just not when they had sex I wonder why Lisa decided to take this rout with this book Was it to shock veryone so that this book would be talked about so that people would want to see for themselves what they thought So what I m saying is I did NOT LIKE THE SEX SCENES AT like the sex scenes at in this book They were not for meI also want to say that xcept for the sex scenes I really njoyed the rest of the book I liked the story a LOT and was really happy that Lisa included Passion Mark and Aunt Matty in this book If the sex scenes were not written as they were this would have been a 4 or 5 star book for me I am curious to see what my buddies here think of this book so please don t let my review change your mind about reading it Everyone has different tastes and views and for all I know you might love it or hate it PLOT SPOILERS AND EXPLICIT LANGUAGE WARNINGSo here is what I think is the set up for the storyMatthew is devastated after his bastardy is xpose.
