Synopsis

Life is a dance. Whether you lead or follow, the passion of it should sweep you away.

Carey and Alistair have the kind of relationship that is the envy of their friends. Carey is an old-fashioned Dom who appreciates quiet obedience. Alistair is a sub who is comfortable in his skin and finds peace in his submission. Needless to say, their happiness is too good to last.

When Alistair’s powerful father chooses his reputation over his son, all hell is let loose. Forcibly committed to a clinic for reversion therapy, Alistair can only hope that his lover will save him.

Carey calls on his friends from The Edge and they band together not just to rescue Alistair but also to protect his future. They’ve all flirted with danger in the past – but friendship is worth any risk. As the tension mounts and the stakes get higher, new bonds are forged but will Carey and Alistair’s love survive?

Review

FiveStars

This book has some abusive “therapy” – if that type of thing bother’s you, do not read.
Carey and Alistair are a great pair. Despite their age difference, they are exactly what each other needs.
I love Alistair’s confidence. It makes him a very likable character. So often the subs are unsure, timid and almost whiny – Alistair is SO not like that and I loved it! Despite his background, he found a world where he was comfortable, safe and honored. When he is faced with unspeakable torment at the hands of his father, his inner confidence shows through with the power to fight back.
I love Carey’s protectiveness. Despite having some reservations about Alistair’s age, Carey realizes that love really knows no age. He accepts Alistair’s submission with such grace and love – it’s hard not to want such a happy ending for these two. When trouble brews, Carey calls in all his favors, because he knows he’s found something special in Alistair and he wasn’t willing to give it up.
The twists in this story kept me on my toes. I loved Alana. She was a fantastic character – I would love to read a book on her!
It also really pains me that there are “facilities” like the one described in this book. It made me want to throw up thinking about people being subjected to such hate.
Overall, this is a great story of love, honor and the will to be yourself.

AuthorBio

I live in a small village in the English countryside, surrounded by rolling hills, cows and sheep. I started writing to fill time between jobs and am now firmly and unashamedly addicted.

I love the English weather, especially the rain, and adore a thunderstorm. I love good food, warm company and a crackling fire.

I’m fascinated by the psychology of relationships, especially between men, and my stories contain some subtle (and not so subtle) leanings towards BDSM.
