Synopsis

How do you stay standing when the ground is torn from beneath your feet?

Becket and Christian are taking the first, tentative steps towards the committed D/s relationship they both crave when the world literally explodes around them. In a frightening reversal of roles, Becket has to deal with his own vulnerability and Christian must find the strength to take care of his Dom. With the help of their friends at The Edge, the two men come to realise that dominance and submission cannot be switched on and off.

Events that could have ended in tragedy provide the catalyst that affirms their trust in each other, but there are still questions to answer. Is the safe path always the right one to take? Is control simply a state of mind?

One thing’s for certain, life’s too short for compromise.

Reader Advisory: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series.

Review

ThreeandHalfStars

Christian and Dave (Becket) have a somewhat strange relationship. Because of Becket’s job, because of Christian’s submissive nature, it takes them quite a while to come together.
I felt that this story was somewhat rushed in a way. There was really no courtship – we only know that they have played a few times, but there was really no buildup. We were just kind of thrust in to this story – somewhat in the middle.
This was not one of my favorites for this series. Christian is a sub who needs ultimate dominance. We hear about it throughout the story. However, Becket, I felt, never really shows that ultimate control. There were too many other things going on in this book.
There were hints that could have taken off in the direction I thought this book would have gone, but we only ever got promises of control and dominance. I wish this book would have started earlier in their courtship – that there had been a courtship and that the focus would have been more on their relationship.

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.
