If there's one thing that Aurora is passionate about, its that people should help educate the future generation. Caspian White has always refused for his company to use open source, and therefore make things available to schools...even if Caspian has the money to do it. But Caspian has had his eye on Aurora for a while, and now he has a chance to find out what makes her tick. While they each try to prove to the other that their way of seeing the world is the right one, they discover more about each other and themselves than they ever imagined...
After first meeting Caspian White in Parker Trevor's Harem series (which you need to read if you haven't already!) I can safely say that Gagged is not what I expected from him! To be clear you don't need to have read Trevor's Harem to enjoy or understand Gagged, but it does introduce Caspian (and makes a couple of comments about Bridget make more sense!)
While there were some seriously hot sex scenes in Gagged, and some light BDSM (very light really!) this book was much more about the characters and the romance than that. It was Caspian and Aurora's journey to moving past the past and becoming who they were meant to be. There were some really sweet moments in their relationship, as well as some moments that had me welling up a little bit because of how awful they'd had it in the past.
I loved Jasmine. The best friend relationship between her and Aurora was perfect and it worked well. Parker even managed to capture awkwardness between them at one point (but no more about that!) It reminded me of when I lived with friends!
This was a fantastic read, not that I expected any less!
