Seduced by Pain picks up where Seduced by Innocence leaves off. Blake plays a bigger role in this book, though things have definitely changed. Book two delves deeper into Rose's "dark" gift as she seeks a way to control it. There's a lot more adult scenes in this one that are strategically placed so the story flows. This book is also a bit funny then book 1. Ocean proves herself to be quite the comedienne.
All in all, the storyline once again leaves readers with a mild cliffhanger. There's not so much a cliff as a sunny ledge to sprawl out on while waiting to read Seduced by Power, book 3 in the saga. The ending leaves the reader knowing there's book 3 without the growl factor that book 1's cliffhanger left us in.
I give this book 5 of 5 paws
