Indie Book Review: Obedience

Obedience by Liza Snow – 4 STARS

A sexy tale of childhood idols, dangerous secrets and hidden desires… on and off the cirque performance stage.

I will admit when I first picked up the book, I expected it to be similar to another book I read in terms of the student-teacher taboo relationship theme, but I was pleasantly surprised to see a much more consensual, mature troupe. It was an older, of-age college student who had a crush on her mentor ever since she was a young girl watching him perform as a silk aerialist in his family’s circus show.

She’s orphaned and plagued by doubts of her parents’ accidental death and her perverse uncle’s potential role in it. He’s an injured silks artist with a secret passion for the Japanese art of bondage, Shibari. Both fight the urge to give into their attraction because of their professional relationship and age difference, but it was clear from the start that the chemistry was undeniable.

It was the perfect slow burn romance, feeling tortured along with the couple as they resisted each other time and again.

Not only that, but there were layers of mystery and danger that surrounded Cassandra as she ran from her uncle’s world in Vegas to an even more precarious situation with her idol/mentor’s family. Why is she in danger? What evidence does she have that makes her a target? Can Chandler forgive her for holding back secrets?

I can’t wait to find out the answers in the sequel!
