Took My Breath Away By Thianna D

Sometimes taking control is what you need to do and sometimes the best thing you can do is give that control up.
In the summer between Logan’s junior and senior years of college, these two will find out more about each other and themselves than they imagined.
While unhappy to be missing four weeks of Christian’s company, Logan is thrilled to spend a month with his father’s relatives in New York. A naturally gregarious individual, he is used to winning people over and getting things right. Unfortunately, the Mannettes are not what he expects and for the first time in his life, he finds himself seriously doubting who he is.
Christian has regained some of his old self-esteem and is taking on new challenges. Besides growing in the relationship he has with Logan, he takes the time his boyfriend is away to learn more about domestic discipline. He learns a little online but it is actually Gregory, Logan’s father, where he gains most of his information. Including the fact that his natural strength puts him in a leadership position he isn’t expecting.
When Logan returns to a strong, self-assured Christian, it is with complete relief. As discussions turn to domestic discipline and they realize their true roles within their current and future relationship, both of them are able to let their inhibitions go and together their connection grows surprising Logan to an epiphany.

I really completely enjoyed the first book in this series, I thought it was really well written and I was kinda worried that the authors’ momentum wouldn’t have stopped.  I was really glad to find out that this book was just as well written as the first one.
My biggest complaint about this book is, in the first book Christian is home from the war where he was injured.
He was having difficulty walking and was going through physical therapy.  In this book though there was no mention whatsoever of him having those issues.  And no mention of how he was suddenly able to overcome all of them.  That slight inconsistency bothered me a bit when it came to this story.
Taking that out of the equation, I really did enjoy this segment of the series because we were able to spend more time with the couple as they go through pretty big life events together.  They are put through some pretty big life events to see if they are going to be able to work through things or not. One thing that was really good that the author thought to add, it was quite educational to a degree.
Both Logan and his father were able to explain what a DD relationship is like.  And it didn’t feel like they were lectured or anything, they were just explaining how it is.   I really enjoyed how the author added that to the story.
I really can’t wait for the next book to come out so we can follow along with more of the relationship that is still forming.
