I was so glad that Brandon and Jonathan got a second book. So much has happened between the two during their first try. Are they willing to put all that behind them and truly try for themselves this time and not continually fight each other for control?  After all that he has gone through Brandon finds himself still out of sorts once he goes back to his old life. Not able to stand it anymore Brandon goes back to Jonathon’s and asks him for help. Will Jonathan give him the help he needs or will he send him away?

Once again I enjoyed watching Brandon and Jonathan go through so much again. Brandon is so much stronger than he thinks he is and just going to Jonathan for help shows that. Brandon goes through so much and learns so much about himself. While I did begin to understand Jonathan more in this book I still did not connect with him and found him to be lacking in some ways. I did enjoy watching the relationship between these two progresses into what it does. Brandon tries so hard to figure out all his emotions and just where he fits in and Jonathan begins to feel and understand more of their relationship.

Along with the intense sex and extreme situations there is so much emotion in this story. Not only do we get to see the two men in their quiet and secluded life but we also get to see them interacting with another couple in the same lifestyle and in the outside world as well. I enjoyed seeing the effects of all this and how Brandon and Jonathan’s relationship stands against it all. Watching Jonathan and Brandon learn so much about each other and what makes the other tick made for a good read.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
