Blurb:

Following the death of their sub, the former owners of the Guards of Folsom, Robert “Bobby” Alcott and Rig Beckworth, were left to pick up the pieces as best they could. After seven years, these two Doms are ready to move on and find the boy who will complete them. Their painful past comes crashing back when they meet Mason Howard, a submissive who just weeks ago lost his Doms in a car accident.

Reeling from overwhelming grief that’s complicated by a severe social anxiety disorder, Mason can barely leave his home. When Rig and Bobby find him, he’s hit rock bottom, believing life is no longer worth living. Bobby and Rig set out to prove the younger man wrong. Fate has brought the three men together, but they’ll have to face fear and loss head on before they can all truly live again.

My View – Story:

The second book in the Guards of Folsom series and one that tackles some pretty serious and bleak subjects.

Bobby and Rig are two Doms who have been a couple for years but have been missing an integral part of themselves since their sub died seven years ago. Although they have taken other subs to their bed and playroom since Stephen died they have never found another man that they wanted to keep. A trip to Florida for a well-earned break may see that fact about to change as they run into a broken man by the beach.

Mason Howard’s life is hell. As if suffering from an anxiety disorder and panic attacks is not bad enough he has just lost his reason for living. His two Doms died only weeks ago in a car accident and his grief is so strong it is crippling him. He has moments where he is disassociated from reality and the only way out he sees is by planning his suicide and joining the two men he loves so much in death.

Through sheer coincidence and a bit of luck these three men find each other and for Mason it is just in time. Their initial friendship is clunky as they all navigate their own issues of grief and memories. Thank god for Max, another Dom and psychiatrist, who is on hand to help Mason get past his destructive thoughts and offer him a small amount of hope for the future.

There is no big ‘tada’ moment when these men get together but more of a slow acceptance that they want each other, they care for each other and that life has offered them a way of moving on and finding a bit of happiness.

My View – Narration:

Rusty Topsfield did another great job with the narration except for one part. Max! What was going on with his voice? Nobody sounds like that when they speak! His English accent sounded like something straight out of Mary Poppins and spoiled it just a little bit.
