Not a horrible story, but I couldn't relate to it as well as some other readers. I am very open minded and I'm not bothered by "kink", but this took on a whole new level that just wasn't for me. Sex is one thing, but losing who you are entirely, to be owned voluntarily in every aspect of your life, was something that I couldn't understand. It wasn't the D/s situations that were so awkward(even though there was a lot of non-consensual torture), it was the "don't tell me what your really thinking, unless it pleases me, or you'll be punished for it!" situations from the man she loved. Not in the Romance category, but if you're looking for Dark Erotica, this might be for you.
