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.
So this is book 4 in the Tales From The Edge Series and I’m sorry to say the first one I have read. Why did I not know about this series?! I ignored the reader advisory to read the series in order but now intend to go back and devour the first 3 books. If you can’t already tell….I really liked this one!
Becket is a Dom but more importantly a well respected member of the community with a close knit group of friends also within the lifestyle (this is where reading the books in order would have helped!). With his secretive and sometimes dangerous job he is not home very often which has left him feeling unable to commit to a full time sub. Christian may just be the man that changes his mind on that.
Christian seems to do nothing but work, study and sleep. He hasn’t wanted to be with another Dom since his first time with Becket but can’t seem to get the man to commit. With a little help from interfering but well meaning friends the two men finally get together again and decide to take their relationship further.
As always nothing runs smoothly. Just as it seems they might make a go of things Becket is injured at work. Feeling vulnerable from his injuries he starts questioning every aspect of his life leading to worry about how his job and choices have affected the way he has treated Christian.
This pair have love, respect and honesty to help them through and ‘contract’ their new relationship. The story was real, the secondary characters important and the sex was sizzling!
