From the Publisher:

After six years of romance and kink, Jesse Ross and Will Anderson have had their ups and downs and come through them stronger and happier. But when Jesse’s mother dies unexpectedly, Jesse is forced to return to his childhood home in Georgia to help his family cope. Will transfers from Seattle to his company’s Atlanta office, but love their way is out of the question while they’re staying in Jesse’s parents’ home. So Will buys a small house for them to fix up and find some privacy. 

When their lives start to settle back into something like normality, Will and Jesse resume their recently neglected BDSM relationship. Along with the security of Jesse’s submission comes trouble, as a local man tries to lure a lonely, grieving Jesse away from Will, and one of Will’s coworkers causes tension between them. Both men are forced to reassess what really matters, and where their romance is heading

My View

I loved the first two books in this series. They were full of angst, kink, awakenings and love. They both had very distinct stories to tell about Will and Jesse and how their relationship started and evolved. How they made it through some very difficult times, how they grew and became stronger and how that helped each facet of their relationship.

Will and Jesse don’t just have a D/s relationship.  They are friends, lovers and equals as well and I think this is very important in their overall relationship. They have worked hard on merging each element and are now in a strong position with each other.

When Jesses mum dies suddenly and Jesse feels like he needs to stay near his family in Atlanta Will never questions it, he just uproots his life, follow Jesse and is there to support him in any way he can. The one thing this book makes very clear is the love Will has for Jesse as both a partner and a sub. He loves him, he worships him and he can’t imagine a life without him.

The blurb gives you most of the story. In exploring their sexual kink they add a third for a night who then becomes infatuated with Jesse and tries to lure him away. At the same time Will is dealing with a co-worker being a little infatuated, although he is so in love with Jesse that he misses all the signs until Jesse points it out.

As always with this couple the sex and the scenes are very hot. They always seem to know when the other needs a bit of a kink or just vanilla; they are very intuitive of each other which again proves just how strong their relationship has become.  I would have liked a bit more angst and drama as it felt a little predictable at times, it was almost too easy.

The last 20% of the book was my favourite. Everything fell into place as it should and Jesse finally seems to be moving forward in his grief. The ending has definitely left me wondering whether we will see a fourth book but for now book three is a good addition, just a little different and slower than the previous two.
