  1. Wow I feel emotionally shellshocked after reading this This is definitely one of those books that is going to stay with me Forever.I sobbed Not just like a lot of tears, like 100%, full fledged weeping Many times But I also laughed This book is beautiful I don t know how else to describe it It has also totally rearranged my definition of kink But also, and very importantly, the point of the book was not the kink It was the emotional journey that the characters go though The sex isn t the focus o [...]

Type Standalone Book 4 of The Suncoast Society seriesPOV Third PersonRating Kaden and Seth were lifelong friends When Kaden found out he was dying, he made one request from Seth that threw his friend s already messed up life in disarray to replace him as his wife Leah s Dom and husband after he died.Seth not only had to live with the fact that his best friend is dying, he was also thrown into a crash course of the D s lifestyle and to deal with his conflicting emotions in doing what s best for h [...]

  3. This review was posted at My Secret RomanceI can t even begin to explain how bewildered I am with this book This is one of the most amazing stories I have ever read It brought a smile to my face and tears in my eyesny times I have never cried so hard in my life while reading a book We knew all along what was going to happen, but you can never truly prepare for it I kept putting the book down because I knew it was comingd I wasn t ready for it But who is ever ready for something that you know wil [...]

  4. What a moving, emotional book I have to say it is the most I have ever cried reading a book, yet at the end I had a wonderful, euphoric feeling What a friendship between the main characters Seth and Kaden, very deep, platonic love almost godly What a lifestyle, heavy bsdm is definitely not appealing I could open my mind to read about it, but it was sort of a turn off not romantic There was plenty of intimacy though and the love in the relationship of Seth, Kaden, and Leah was so earth shattering [...]

  5. SOLID 5 STARSOMG OMG love love love this book Will be adding it to my collection so I can re read in the future More then just a BDSM and Erotic book This book show us how far a husband will go to protect his wife even after death and how what a TRUE friend will do for you even tho they may not want to or understand it.Book that will have you laughing out load, crying buckets, and give you goose bumps A MUST READ

  6. I highly recommend this book to my friends that like touchy feely heart wrenching, love stories with lots of angst oh and lots of crying I however, am not one of those people, so I found this book to be tortuous to read.I have never been so relieved to finish a book This was a heart wrenching story of Kaden, who had just discovered he had pancreatic cancer and had about a year left to live Kaden immediately asks Seth, his lifelong best friiend, to not only move in with him, but to mary his wife, [...]

  7. I love you, bro I love you too Still not doing you Kaden and SethOk, people, don t judge me lol After reading Fifty I found out I had a passion for Erotica you can all thank Christian Grey for that Anyway, I was just looking for Erotica, not necessarily anything revolving around BDSM This book was recommended to me by a friend on , and I m glad she did.Let me start by saying, I haven t cried like that at a book since I read Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma The Reluctant Dom is an extremely emotional [...]

  8. This was a very touching, emotional book about friendship, trust, and love Forever and beyond unconditional love Love between a man and woman, men and woman, and two men whose friendship has spanned a lifetime Leah has had a troubled past and is a self abuser She is the love of Kaden s life, and in his desperation to help her he recognizes that if he can control her world and her pain, that this will provide the structure and release that she needs in order to heal and lead a normal life He beco [...]

  9. I had to wait a few hours after finishing this book before I could write this review I have NEVER in my life cried while reading a book as much as I did during this novel I really and truly wept.The Reluctant Dom is a tricky book to categorize Is it BDSM Yes, but not the typical story you ll read in this genre The hero is truly a reluctant Dom Being a master is not something he craves or has ever desired for himself He falls into the lifestyle by accident as a way to help his wife cope with some [...]

  10. With tears in my eyes there is no way I can write this review now An amazing book Will write something soon.My reviewI feel numb after reading this book I freely admit I am an emotional sap I m the kind of girl that can cry over the right commercial But it s been a while since a book has made me feel this way Still I continue to reflect over these characters I rarely re read entire books But I find myself considering re reading this one and I ve only just put it down In simple terms, this book i [...]

  11. DAMN YOU MS DALTON Oh my word I cried throughout this book I have been extremely reluctant in reading this book because of the mixed reviews, despite my love of most of her books The detractors of this book had warned me of Leah s questionable mental health problems which are medicated by the BDSM lifestyle I am not fond of this type of presentation either because those not in the lifestyle may take this as an example of how BDSM people are all mentally unstable The beginning of the story with L [...]

  12. Less than five stars for this book would be a travesty Normally if I love a book, I will plough on at full speed until finished, no matter the hour However this book was different I found I had to walk away from it Not sure if it was guilt for feeling like a voyeur of their emotional and heart rendering relationship, I certainly became emotionally involved to the point where I was pondering the situation through out my day, or than likely because I was trying to postpone the inevitable I must s [...]

  13. I ve just finished this book and I m clutching my chest.This was such an emotional read I cried many times through it and it really did touch me deep.I m not a real fan of a lot of BDSM books to be honest but this book is so much than that In this book the relationship between Seth, Leah and Kaden is explored and it is done so well that you really feel the deep love and emotion these three go through.They share a deep bond and knowing throughout the book that Kaden was dying had me reading the [...]

  14. 3 3 4 Stars I can t won t give it 4 stars due to my frustration with Leah and the fact that I m completely stubborn God, I feel like the Reluctant Reviewer Sh t this one s a toughie How does one review without giving too much away This is a story of a PERFECT husband Kaden, GOD his stupid ass emotionally broken wife Leah, and his best friend Seth Kaden is dying You re going see this line A LOT If you are anything like myself, it s going to annoy the HELL out of you I felt I should warn you Kaden [...]

  15. 5 I LOVED LOVED LOVED IT For the last few hours I have been trying to fine coherent words to express how I feel My emotions are raw and all over the place right now that I cannot stop sobbing as I write this review This is one of the most amazing stories I have ever read This story is not only about BDSM But about friendship, love, passion, loss and most importantly unconditional love Kaden who is dying of cancer ask is oldest and best friend Seth to take over is beloved wife Leah and become her [...]

  16. I ve been putting off doing a review of this book I really don t like slamming a book, but I am really sort of horrified by the concept that the characters in this book are portrayed as being normal lifestylers I know people in the lifestyle I know people who have grown up in horrific situations that left them traumatized I ve worked with abused children and teens They get counseling and medication when needed To use BDSM as a treatment for Leah s extensive, crippling neuroses is simplyI don t k [...]

  17. 4 Still Not Doing You StarsThis was an surprisingly good read Of course I thought it would be good, that s why I read it But the plot was not what I had in my head I wasn t prepared for the emotions I d feel for these characters or the depth of the story Seth and Kayen have been best friend pretty much all their lives Their deep bond has stayed strong throughout the years But this last test of their friendship will be the hardest by far.Kayden and his wife Leah have a unique relationship He s no [...]

  18. I am sobbing my heart outI want to give this book 10 stars and This book has every human emotion in it that makes for a fantastic read It hasLOVE, Passion, Hope, Sorrow Courage It was extremely beautiful so well written As a reader it took me through one of the most intensely emotional, painful, heart breaking and torturous journeys I have ever experienced I can t even adequately describe just how amazing this book is and how emotionally exhausted I am from reading it.Kaden and Leah have been m [...]

  19. Ok, I m gonna edit this now over calmed down 3.5.I m a little disappointed if I m honest I really thought I was going to love this one Kaden has cancer and is dying, he is trying to convince his best friend Seth to take over his role as husband dom for his wife Leah Kaden and Leah both love Seth and although Seth is uncomfortable with BDSM he pushes himself out of his comfort zones for them as he wants to fulfill Kaden s wishes, he has always loved Leah so he is also constantly battling his guil [...]

  20. This is an emotional book If you are not down with that, it may turn you off I was attracted to it like a moth to the flame It hurt to read it and the situation brought back many difficult memories, but I made it through and am glad for the experience.Seth is the best Love that man Kaden is great, but a little too perfect he needed a flaw to make him seem real Leah is one hurting unit I did not identify with her, but was glad to see her grow into her own.It is easy to tell that the author has ex [...]

  21. 5 HEART MELTING, GUT WRENCHINGLY, EMOTIONALLY DRAINING StarsI have to say that this was one of the most difficult books I ve ever read I thought I was emotional reading Losing Hope I teared up a little while reading that book This book, had me doing the ugly cry with sound effects All I can say is WOW I had wanted to read this book for some time But just never got around to it All I can say is that I didn t know M nage could be so deep, as one of my buddy s pointed out to me And of course that s [...]

  22. 4.5 starsI finished this book yesterday and spent the entire day trying to come to terms with my feelings about it Don t get me wrong, I liked it, but I was unable to think past the tragic parts and actually say what is it that I liked didn t like in the book Things are clearer now, but forgive me if I don t manage to explain myself completely.Seth and Kaden have been best friends their entire lives So when Kaden asks for a favor, Seth immediately accepts, until he actually hears what Kaden is a [...]

  23. Need to process this holy hell.OK slept on it and pondered it I loved this story Sadder than hell, but also way hot and funny I LOVED SETH Adding him to my book boyfriend list I loved the way the story was told from his POV and his reactions to BDSM to finding out that his best friends were into it and the turmoil he had with what was being asked I loved the unrequited love, and I loved the deep and strong friendship I cried like a baby when Kaden passed and the beauty of that scene Highly recom [...]

  24. I dont even know what to rate this It was a dnf for me Not because it wasnt good but because I dont understand it I can t fathom how bdsm can fix someone with such major issues as what the heroine had Then have her moving into a relationship with another man because her husband was dying and she needs bdsm to survive how do you even grieve I dont know, it was too hard So I quit.

  25. I LOVED THIS BOOK LOVED LOVED LOVED IT I feel like I can t make any justice on my review because words can not express what I felt reading this piece of perfection My buddy Candace told me to read it and I was as reluctant as Seth when Kade asked him to join them Well, let s startKaden Leah have been married for a long time and Seth is Kade s best friend The thing is Kade is dying, he s got cancer and he knows he is going to die so he convinces Seth to take care of Leah once he is dead Leah has [...]

  26. Final thoughts After reading a few books since I finished The Reluctant Dom, I m ready to give my final review on it I wondered if I d still feel the same way after some time had passed The answer is YES I LOVED it and this is why it hit on several cylinders for me It s sexy Thought provoking Emotional Different And written well I was engaged from the first to last page What could one ask for Even though much of it was predictable, I couldn t wait to read what would happen next with the charac [...]

  27. Solid 4.75 StarsSo I loved this one You re probably wondering why I didn t give a full 5 stars then Well here s the thing It s so weird Cos although I have this very strong, emotional connection with one of our heroes, Seth, I still can t physically place what this man looks like The reason why, is cos the author never gave me a foundation to work with in this regard My mind s eye is completely blank in regards to Seth She gives vague descriptions early on, concerning the other two main characte [...]

  28. Wow , I am emotionally drained from this book , this was way beyond 5 stars for me like a 10 no doubt I was not expecting the ride I was just on and let me tell you I cried like a blubbering idiot , to the point I had to stop reading for 10 mins to pull myself back together this book made me feel like I lost a Best friend And that sucked , but I LOVED this book so much It was full of Love, Courage, sorrow,friendship and BDSM it will definitely be added to my read again list It will stay with me [...]
