Synopsis

For Christian Darringer, life isn’t worth living. Just back from the Middle East; scarred and with permanent damage to one leg, he does not think anyone will want him for anything. Meeting a gorgeous man he finds himself thinking about constantly is not in his plans. Pulled toward the startling younger man with striking blue eyes, he begins to question a lot of things – especially his sexuality. Not one to hide from a challenge, he plunges ahead only to find himself more than just attracted to Logan who is full of life and joy, he finds himself head over heels in love.

Logan Mannette has almost everything he ever wanted: loving parents, happiness, friends and security. The only thing missing is finding the love of his life, a love that is just like his parents’. When he meets Christian at a party, everything changes. Instantly attracted, he does his best to help this sad man and quickly finds himself feeling more than he has ever felt before. Raised in a domestic discipline household, he holds that ideal as what he wants but his interest in spanking became a fetish and when Christian admits that he wants to be spanked, Logan believes he might have found the perfect man.

Just as everything begins for them, Christian’s past intercedes and one of his brothers makes waves about him dating a man. If it weren’t for Logan’s support, he might fold; but with the love of one amazing man, Christian finds that living his life rather than just existing is as natural as breathing.

Review

FourandHalfStars

I have to say I was REALLY surprised at how much I loved this book. At first I really have to admit, I couldn’t get into it. As someone who served in the military, I can tell you that some of what happens in the beginning is wrong and it bothered me. They would never leave a family wondering if their son was alive or dead if they could answer it. And you don’t get all your treatment in Germany, you get it in the U.S. where they encourage your family to be there to support you.
That being said, once I got past the beginning and we really got to see into the relationship between Christian and Logan I was sunk. I couldn’t put it down. I wanted to know how they got over Christian’s unsure feelings and how the would ease their way into a relationship.
A lot happens in this book and I think maybe a bit too much at the beginning was focused on families and I couldn’t keep straight who was in who’s family and what was really going on where. But once it went back to the two families and the two men it was much easier to follow even when the jerk brother shows up.
I can’t wait to see where their relationship goes.. Oh and the two spanking scenes.. HOT.. I loved them and the intimacy they brought to the couple.

Excerpt

Dinner was easy, the easiest first date Christian had ever been on. Logan laughed, talked, teased, but it felt like he was with a friend rather than with a date…but then again, that was what he asked for. After two large platters of sushi disappeared between the two of them, they paid and left. “Okay, we can drive or we can walk. The theater is only ten blocks.” Then Logan’s eyes dropped to his leg. “Damn, I forgot about your leg. Maybe we should drive.”

Shaking his head, Christian placed a hand on his arm. “Naw. I walk by the river all the time. I think I’d like to walk.”

Logan watched him, as if trying to make up his mind if Christian meant it or not. When he figured he did, he beamed. “Great. There is this cool piece of art you have got to see.”

AuthorBio

Thianna loves to write strong stories with even stronger heroes. While all of her books have an erotic overtone, it is the story that is the most important to her. “The story should be able to stand on its own. The erotic elements are an add-on.”

She enjoys writing about couples with kink, paranormal couples, and straight out strangeness. But more on that later… mm.thiannad.com.

AuthorInterview

Do you pay attention to literary criticism? To be honest, no. I don’t read my reviews very often. Why? I’m an author. Sure, I love 4&5 star reviews, but 1&2 star reviews can totally crush me. Plus, you don’t know what’s going on in the mind of the reviewer. I had one person love my All They Ever Needed trilogy. She kept asking when the third book would be out. When it did get released, she gave it 2 stars with a very effusive, positive review. Why did she give it 2 stars? Because it ended the series.

 

The days are 25 hours. How do you spent that extra hour? You mean they aren’t normally 25 hours? I’d be torn between reading, writing, or editing. And if it were 25 hours, I’d probably be hoping for a few more. There are just never enough hours in the day.

 

What is the book you would bring with you on a desert island? *blinks* Hmm, let me think. Just one? You know that’s a killer right? It would have to be between Falls Chance Ranch by Rolf & Ranger and the Complete Works of William Shakespeare. Yes, I am an eclectic reader. 😀

 

When and why did you begin writing? I’ve been creating stories in my head since I could think. I’ve been writing since I was five. I still have my very first story, along with the aliens I drew in the margins to go along with it
