Kaden Thorn, a dental surgeon who lives a quiet life, has no hope of finding the love he craves. A vicious gay bashing cost him the use of his legs and confined him to a wheelchair. He has given up hope of finding a Dom or even a nonkink partner to love him. When his best friend practically forces him to attend a dinner party, the last thing he expects is a strong Dom who can see beyond his wheels.
Deacon James is an architect and a demanding Dom, but he has spent the past couple of years without a sub or partner. When an employee invites him to a dinner party to meet his girlfriend, Deacon smells a setup but agrees anyway. He prides himself on being an excellent judge of character, and when he meets the younger dentist, he sees past the chair and finds a sweet submissive man who more than piques his interest.
Kade’s fears and demons continue to haunt him, challenging Deacon to use everything he’s learned as a Dom to earn Kade’s trust and submission. Deacon’s determined, though, willing to battle all of it to have Kade by his side and at his feet.
I will be completely honest – I started to read this book simply because Kaden was in a wheelchair and I wanted to see what would happen between him and Deacon. And I must admit – if this is anything like O’Riley’s other books, then I am a new fan.
One thing that I loved about the story was getting to see as Kaden’s character grew stronger. Throughout the book his strength and courage grew and it gave him the courage to realize that Deacon could (and wanted to) be with him and give him what he wanted.
Another thing that I loved is how Deacon wasn’t worried about Kaden’s disability. He was there to help and support him in anyway, and Kaden opened up to allow Deacon to do that.
The BDSM aspect of the book was really well done. I liked how Deacon was able to show Kaden that even though he was in a wheelchair, he could still have everything that he craved.
Overall – this was a great read and I can’t wait to see what else O’Riley has in store for us in the future.
