Contains non-con elements and scenes of violence.
Jax has the perfect job on the perfect world, looking after subs while their owners are away. But Brysen’s no ordinary sub and his owner Layne is a threat to the safety of every sub on the planet.
Dealing with the heartbreak of a failed relationship, Jax is slow to realize Brysen’s adoration for his stern owner passes all reason, and breaks every rule. By the time he does, there may be time to save Brysen, but in the process, Jax stands to lose everything from his job to his chance at love. Will the protective instincts that guide his actions hold steady or will the darkness Layne wakes within him prove stronger?
The blurb of this book drew me in – but I have to admit that I didn’t enjoy the story as much as I had hoped.
I’m not a fan of non-con, but with this book it worked because it did help to progress the story and helped to understand what Brysen had been though/was going through.
I just didn’t really feel the relationship between Jax and Brysen. It seemed more like the relationship between a rescuer and a rescuee instead of a budding relationship between two people.
With everything that Brysen had been through, and was still going through mentally, I just couldn’t really grasp his logic of everything. It seemed like he just moved on so quick that it didn’t make sense.
Jax was a difficult character as well – he held himself back when it came to dealing with the subs, but it also felt like he was holding back throughout the entire story.
Overall, it was an interesting read, but I just wasn’t able to get into the story as much as I had hoped.
