Vaughn would do anything to protect his wife and save his marriage. When he discovers unexplainable bruises and marks on her body after solo outings late at night, he resolves to discover the secrets she’s been keeping and fight for their marriage at all costs.
Will Desi’s secrets destroy her?Can Vaughn fulfill his wife’s darkest desires?
With hope, Desi and Vaughn attempt to find the beauty of letting go while fighting the demons of their past that threaten to destroy them for good.
CONTENT WARNING: This book contains sexually explicit scenes and mature themes. Desi’s story features a sexual journey that involves kink, bondage, multiple partners, a sex club, and questionable fidelity (with a purpose). It is not a standalone and the books must be read in order. This is book 1 of 2.
TRIGGER WARNING: This book is about healing after a loss. A stillbirth occurs in the prologue. Details are brief and limited, but the emotions may be triggering for some readers.
Say hello to my new favorite book of the year! 

To keep it short, this story is about Desi and Vaughn who are young newlyweds and pregnant with their first child. They couldn’t be more happier until tragedy strikes and they lose their baby. Understandably Desi spirals into a depressing she can’t seem to get out of, until she meets Law and he introduces her to a new kind of lifestyle.

I don’t know what I expected when I started reading this book but I hadn’t expected it to grip me in such an emotional way. The story broke my heart, healed it and broke it several more times. And I would happy let the story and its characters break my heart a hundred times more if it means I could read this story over and over again.

I also want to say this isn’t a story where one of the characters cheats on the other one. It’s far more complicated than that. Yes, Desi sees Law behind Vaughn’s back but they never actually sleep together or even kiss. It’s all about the pain Law acquaints Desi with and her submitting to it and him. 

Vaughn in the meantime isn’t just a bystander either. He is fighting like hell to keep Desi in his life and to make their marriage work. Also, I love Vaughn and will do anything to protect him. Oh my god, he was so very amazing! I need a Vaughn in my life. I just couldn’t help but root for him and Desi. 

This doesn’t mean, of course, that I didn’t love Law too. Because damn that man was hot. SO HOT. He had some serious scorching hot chemistry going on with Desi. He fell for her even though she had made it clear anything sexual was off limits but he couldn’t help himself. I really felt for him and I just want him to be happy. Which I’m hoping will happen in the second book because he deserves it so much.

Overall, I had high expectations for Blue by Brynn Ford but even those were by far exceeded. It was a brilliant kinky story with equally briliant kinky characters. I loved every single part of this book, every single word! 
About the author:
Brynn Ford is an author of romance in all of its

beautiful and sensually taboo forms. She is a lover of the dark, twisted, and playful and strives to bring the unmentionable aspects of passionate romance into her stories.

Brynn resides in the Midwest with her husband and sons, whom she expects will someday be embarrassed by their mom’s books. When she isn’t obsessively writing, you may find her binge watching favorite shows while eating far too much junk food or fanatically reading, always seeking to lose herself in the emotional roller coaster of a damn good story.

She is quite the idealist, despite her fascination with the wicked and warped aspects of humanity. Some of her stories may run out of words before a happily ever after, but she’s a firm believer that her characters continue to live on outside the pages in the minds of her readers. Stories don’t end just because there aren’t anymore pages to turn.
