Just when Julian Schwarzenberg accepted that discarding his kinkster skin might be for the best, a call from the owner of one of London’s BDSM clubs rekindles his need to have someone to call his own; to dominate and nurture to his heart’s content. Julian was hurt in the past, and he’s reluctant to accept a mystery invitation that could very well lead to a massive case of heartache. And to welcome Christopher into his life might just be Julian’s undoing.
Christopher’s life is like a permanent construction site: unstable and filled to the brim with flakes of emotional plaster. His eating disorder is consuming him from within, and his quest for Dominant Mr. Right–the one thing keeping him going–is a mirage akin to finding water on Mars. But fate finally delivers one effective punch–a smokingly hot Dom who is on the hunt for Submissive Mr. Right. Love may be waiting for Julian and Chris, but it will require them to take a leap of faith. They might just be willing, because they’re both Ravenous.
This is a book that is firmly based in the BDSM lifestyle. It also deals with emotional and realistic eating disorders.
Chris is a mess, recently kicked out of his home with nowhere to go. He ends up at the one place that he knows someone still cares, the BDSM club. He feels unlovable, because if his own brother doesn’t want him why would anyone else. Plus, he also has anorexia, that started when he was younger. So when he is called in the office to meet a strange Master he is nervous and unsure why he is needed. But given the opportunity to possibly have a master all his own is his greatest desire. Chris knows that just because someone say that they will stay by your side doesn’t mean that they will. As Master Julian works with him to overcome some of the issues that he lives with Chris acts out badly.
Master Julian walked away for all the kink a few months ago because he could not find what he was looking for, a full-time submissive to love, care for, and dominate. When he gets a call demanding he come to his old club by the owner and friend a dominatrix. When he meets Chris he is stunned by the beautiful blue eyes, and the pain showing in them. As they work together on their relationship Julian learns that he must be a strong master because a true submissive like Chris needs to know that the rules will be in forced to feel safe and loved.
I really liked this story, it was an emotional read. I fell in love with both of the main characters for different reasons. Chris has been emotionally abused for a long time, and it shows in the way he carries himself and his eating disorder which has advanced enough to be easy to spot. And Julian is afraid to let anyone to close because he has been hurt so many times. But he really wants that one person who can complete him. As they work through all the ups and downs in their journey I really felt that they were real people dealing with real ordinary problems.
