Life is perfect for Richard and Dean. Richard is a wealthy and successful businessman who also owns a BDSM club, and Dean is a best-selling author and sub to Richard. They’re young, happy, and in love. The future is bright….
Until tragedy strikes and an accident claims Dean’s beloved sister. Dean finds himself the guardian of a three-month-old infant, and soon he’s trading in his leather fetish gear for diapers and drool bibs. But little Emily is all that remains of his family, so how can he abandon her?
It’s not what Richard signed up for. As much as he tries to be supportive, he never wanted kids and misses having his partner to himself. Suddenly the life he imagined for them is gone, and he’s not sure their relationship can survive the upheaval. But fate isn’t through with Dean, and when misfortune strikes again, will he be able to turn to the man he loves? A final crisis will determine if they can pull together as a family or must face facts and part ways.
What an unexpected story. Xenia Melzer is a new author for me but I can’t wait to read more by her. I fell in love with her amazing writing style and I can’t wait to read the next book in the Club Whisper series.
This story begins where most books end. We meet a well-established, loving couple who not only share a home and a passion for BDSM, they also live the D/s lifestyle 24/7, completing each other perfectly. The way we see them first shows how perfect their lives are together, how content, happy and satisfied they are with each other. That is when the unexpected happens and their well-coordinated lives explode in their faces. Getting a baby into their lives turn everything upside down, especially as Dean’s Dom does not want a child at all. That’s when all the conflicts begin.
I wanted to kill Richard many times, I was so angry with him about his selfish behavior. I am happy he has good friends who showed him his mistaken ways and he could pull his head out of his a** before doing more damage. After he changed his mind he became the amazing father he is supposed to be.
The conflicts are well written, very powerful and the portrayal of them all allows us to feel everything Richard and Dean go through along the way. We get both perspectives which help a great deal with understanding both our MCs. I was emotionally invested right from the beginning.
The baby angle and the parenting plot-line are both very well written showing lots of experience or thorough research.
The BDSM aspect is also very well done with hot scenes and an amazing bond between our MCs. The writing is vivid with all the best emotions and feels. This was a heartwarming and entertaining read with a bit of angst and hot chemistry. Highly recommended.
