Sammd, good book about overcoming abuse and realizing you can’t always be a fixer. It’s not what I need now. Thanks, Jaime, for an emotional, but enlightening read! Jesse is just a heartbreaker, struggling to recover from a lot of scars, both internal and external. There is a lot of backstory here that reveals itself as the book goes on and brings out the characters’ pasts especially Jesse’s in layers. He admits that he’s angry and that he’s afraid.

The experience left him unable to trust–not just someone else but even himself–and as much as he wants to move on, it seems like the reminders just keep coming back to haunt him.

Jesse Turnbul and Aadon Dounias are both stuck in the past; they are in denial, burdened with guilt and paralyzed with fear. Aadon and Jesse really cared for each other and showed it in a multitude of ways. As a young and inexperienced man, Jesse had been looking for a Dom.

The characters worked great together and I loved that they had to work at their relationship and didn’t just get it right off the bat. Why is it that the females in these stories make me cringe? It’s difficult for him to sit back and watch them struggle, but he realizes that they are the only ones who can help themselves; yet he also knows that he will be there to love and support them when they ask.

How to write a great review. All in all this book was draining to read. First there is Jesse, a submissive that got involved with the wrong man.

The sex is limited. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. I admired Jesse because as hard as it was to do, after Jesse realizes that he’d have to face what happened in order to put it behind him, he takes immediate steps to rectify the situation.

There were a lot of cooks in the kitchen as far as minor characters were concerned, but they all served a purpose. They don’t want to experience the agony of wrong choices and missteps; but the thing is, for better or worse, what happens in betrer past shapes our future.

My only criticism is regarding the dominant side of Aadon which I did not find convincing.
