I liked this, I really did!
Independent Reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book.
Kade was left wheel chair bound after a beating. He lost his life as a sub, and his very reason for living. A disastrous relationship left him thinking he will have no one at all, let alone a Dom. Til he finally gives in and attends a dinner at his friends house. Deacon has spent the last few years without a partner, or a sub. When he meets Kade at his friends dinner party, something changes. He wants Kade like no other, but can Kade let him the man he needs, let him be his Dom, regardless of his disability?
I have not ever read a book where the main character is wheelchair bound. Amputees, yes, chair bound, no. And I really really enjoyed this!!
I loved that Deacon saw the man Kade, before all else. I loved that Deacon made it quite clear that the chair is not an issue for Kade to sub, its a perfectly good way to make Deacon's brain think, and adapt. THAT is what impressed me most about Deacon, his brain adapted almost everything, immediately.
Kade is, emotionally, at least, broken. He constantly belittles himself, his abilities, or lack there of, but he can't see what Deacon does. What Dom would want a sub who cannot kneel at his feet? This is what upset me about Kade the most, his negativity. BUT I was also impressed with his coming around to Deacon's way of thinking, that all things are do-able, with a little thinking and a little adjustment.
What I felt was lacking, though, was history. We get some of Kade's history, his before and after the attack, but the attack is merely told to you. I didn't get into Kade's head, as much as I should have done for such a life changing event. His relationship after, with Gary also leaves me feeling I need more. We don't get much of Deacon's history, either. Some, but not enough for me.
A very well written, well delivered tale, that leaves me wanting to read more from Ms O'Riley.
