Editoral Review

Higher by Zara Cox is a steamy romance novel that was first published on March 9, 2014. Cox is a New York Times bestselling author known for her contemporary romance novels.

Higher is one of her earliest works, and it is a must-read for fans of the genre. The novel tells the story of Lillianna Winters, a successful businesswoman who is struggling to find happiness in her love life.

She meets Jake Harris, a dominant and mysterious man who introduces her to the world of BDSM. Despite her initial apprehension, Lillianna is drawn to Jake and his lifestyle.

Together, they explore their deepest desires and emotional connections, but their relationship is threatened by a dark past that Jake cannot escape. The setting of the novel is modern-day New York City, and Cox expertly captures the atmosphere of the city.

The conflicts in the novel are personal and emotional, and they explore the themes of love, trust, and self-discovery. The characters are well-developed, and Cox’s writing style is engaging and descriptive.

One of the strengths of the novel is the way Cox portrays the BDSM lifestyle. She provides a nuanced and realistic depiction of the power dynamics involved in BDSM relationships.

Rather than resorting to stereotypes or caricatures, Cox treats the topic with sensitivity and respect. The novel also has a feminist message, as Lillianna is portrayed as a strong and independent woman who takes charge of her own desires.

However, the novel does have some flaws. The pacing is somewhat slow, and the plot can be predictable at times.

Additionally, some readers may be uncomfortable with the BDSM content, so it may not be suitable for everyone. Overall, Higher is a well-written and engaging novel that will appeal to fans of romance and erotica.

It provides an insightful exploration of BDSM relationships, and it includes complex and relatable characters. While it may not be perfect, it is certainly a worthwhile read.

Based on these factors, we give Higher by Zara Cox a rating of 3.5/5. We recommend it to readers who enjoy contemporary romance and are interested in exploring the BDSM lifestyle.

It may not be suitable for everyone, but for those who are willing to give it a chance, it is a rewarding and thought-provoking book.
