Synopsis

The man who pimped Jeff may be in prison, but Jeff is still living the nightmare, selling himself to men and relying on pills to manage. Then he meets Scott, a young American man who could easily have been where Jeff is now. Scott’s friends extend a helping hand to Jeff, and he grabs it.

Leo and Thomas bring Jeff to stay with Dom Damian Barnett until they can find him someplace more long-term. Still grieving from losing his sub to cancer two years before, Damian agrees to help. But when he glimpses the extent of the damage, Damian wants to do more than offer his guestroom. Jeff is not a submissive, but Damian can see he desperately needs structure in his life. It’s up to Damian to find an answer.

He never expects that what he discovers will change both their lives.

I will have to say this book had me going through all kinds of emotions. Jeff sold himself to men for money and pills, the person who got him started was in prison but his life was still a living hell. Scott, who we met in a previous book who was asked to come to the UK by “Jeff” and yes it was this “Jeff”, sets out to help Jeff and become his friend. Once again the Doms of Collars & Cuffs help Jeff settle down with someone who can help, Damian, who lost his sub a few years before to cancer. This story broke my heart and mended it back together. This book deals with several touchy subjects and was handled well. The buildup was worth the wait once again in this book. I love how it wasn’t BAM they are together. There was so much to work thru between Damian and Jeff not only together as a couple but separately. I cried a few times while reading this and it was a rollercoaster of a book but was so worth it. These books just trip my trigger and I love them!

Okay to start this review I would like to say I have never read about a relationship like this before.  So it was very different for me and I am still trying to wrap my head around it all. Now don’t get me wrong that does not mean I liked the book less because of it, because I still really loved this book. I just thought it was very different reading about this kind of relationship for me having never heard of that before.
Jeff was so hurt and broken when he came to Damian’s house for help.  Between the addiction and everything that had happened to him before my heart broke for him.
Damian.. What can I say about him besides I absolutely loved his character.  Yes he had something terrible happen in his past too.  The way he worked through it and took such good care of Jeff helping him through everything made me love his character more.
I loved the relationship together even though I am still wrapping my head around some of it I thought it worked for them.
Can I also say the ending of this book was so sweet!
So I will leave this review with I loved this book!  I would definitely recommend it!

Where to start.  I felt like I had read this story before, so for me, it was not as powerful of a story.  While I did enjoy the characters, there was just something about this particular story that I did not grasp at and grab on to like the others.  I tink also, this book echoed a lot of what the previous stories had already gone over.  Especially with Trusting Thomas.

While I enjoyed the relationship that Damian and Jeff created, which was not a BDSM relationship, I think that this book was just too much of the same for me to really enjoy it like I did the previous stories.

Jeff and Damian were a great pair.  Both were able to balance each other out.

I really liked the way Damian and Jeff’s relationship evolved. Their relationship grew from mentor to friends to more and it worked perfectly in my mind.
However, that said I didn’t think the book so much fit in with the others in this series because it was more about a DD relationship, not BDSM. Also, the reoccurring theme of having lost a lover or having an abusive one in the past of both characters has started to make me not like the series as much as I once did.
Once Damian and Jeff worked through their issues and realized that they were exactly what the other wanted/needed they were great together.
I did feel that the book dragged at points and could’ve skipped a few scenes or shortened them drastically and still gotten the point across. And after all the build up of a DD relationship… it was a let down because there was only one scene where we really got to see it carried through.
It wasn’t the writing I didn’t like, but the predictability that seems to have come to this series with the characters.

AuthorBio

Born and raised in the north-west of England, K.C.Wells always loved writing. Words were important. Full stop. However, when childhood gave way to adulthood, the writing ceased, as life got in the way.

K.C. discovered erotic fiction in 2009, where the purchase of a ménage storyline led to the startling discovery that reading about men in love was damn hot. In 2012, arriving at a really low point in life led to the desperate need to do something creative. An even bigger discovery waited in the wings – writing about men in love was even hotter…

K.C. now writes full-time and is loving every minute of her new career.

The laptop still has no idea of what hit it… it only knows that it wants a rest, please. And it now has to get used to the idea that where K.C goes, it goes.
