Rating: 3.0 of 5 Stars


Photography, like love, should have no limits.

Lysander Brock is a talented photographer and capturing the perfect picture is his passion. His work takes him all over the world and he is famous for his willingness to take risks for the perfect image.

Kyle Dawson is tasked by his mysterious employer to obtain Brock’s services for a dangerous job and he’s prepared to use any method to ensure that the young photographer does as he’s told. Breaking and entering and blackmail are just tools of his trade.

Despite the circumstances, the spark of attraction between Brock and Kyle is strong. Brock’s addiction to adrenalin-fuelled adventure holds him captive just as much as Kyle’s brooding dominant appeal. As a fragile trust builds between them, Kyle takes a gamble and tells Brock the truth about his mission. Can Brock accept the challenges ahead, as a photographer and as a man?

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of mild BDSM.

My View:

First, let me say this isn’t a complete story. This is the opening of a series, I presume, though there is no indication I can find of future releases. I will say for an opening Picturing Lysander packs a punch. I’m not sure I’d characterize it as a romance at this juncture, more of a mystery/thriller. I have tons of questions and things are still quite murky.

Lysander is one of those high risk photographers who love nothing more than living out of a suitcase. He lives on the edge, has wanderlust and all that. He’s all set for his next assignment in Colombia when Kyle interrupts his plans with a strange, covert, possibly governmental mission. There really isn’t enough in this to say whether or not they have the makings of a relationship. They do seem to have lust working for them and the beginnings of some D/s dynamics.

This is my second experience with this author. I like her writing style, but I do wish she’d try writing a full length novel. As much as I loathe serials, she’s intrigued me enough with Picturing Lysander that I’ll check out the next installment and that’s saying something. Trust me.
