Knight is home from the hospital, so everything should be back to normal, right? Things are never that easy, though, and the men of Chess must fight to get their lives back.
Knight has returned home from the hospital, but is far from recovered. Things seem to be going well, but depression slowly winds its way around Knight, and he spends all his time in bed sleeping, slipping farther and farther away from his lovers and life.
Rook just wants everything to go back to normal now that their lover is home and Bishop is out of his depth when it comes to Knight’s depression. Can Jason figure out what’s wrong and take the steps needed to help Knight find himself again?
This continuation of the series gives us more about how Knight is doing with his recovery and how everyone else is doing with handling the change in the dynamic between the men and the running of the home.
We have a pretty big time jump, five plus months. And during that time everyone pretty much is letting Knight wallow in his own pity and misery. Doing as little as possible including bathing, eating and exercising.
However, during this time, Jason and Bishop are developing a tighter bond, which is thrilling to Rook but once Knight finds out decides he’s really no longer needed. Jason, decides enough.
What I loved most about this book, is we really see Jason develop in this one. Not just as a four in bed, but as an equal and at times a leader in which Bishop and Rook both defer to, during the most difficult times trying to get Knight back into the man he was.
