This is the last book in the series, a series that has to be read in order. This is the end of Seth and Malcolm’s story, a story about two lost men who find each other. Malcolm lost his last boy to cancer and all but stopped living other than work or going to a bar. Seth lived a life of abuse both by his church and his father, leaving him with nightmares and panic attacks. When they met everything changed.
It has been nine months since Seth and Malcolm have been together. Seth is becoming more and more used to his new life until he meets Malcolm’s parents. For nine months he has called Malcolm nothing but Daddy. As hard as he tried, right after meeting the parents he called Malcolm Daddy revealing the relationship that they have. Running for the car and safety, Seth knows he has embarrassed his Daddy and no doubt disgusted his mom and dad.
Malcolm is one of the lucky ones, because his parents readily accept who their son is. Although Malcolm’s dad is confused, his mom is very aware of what kind of relationship his son is in. She makes no secret of how happy she is that Seth is part of the family and loves him. All Seth ever wanted was a family, now he has it.
Everything in Seth’s life is perfect, in spite of the fact that he can’t stop saying he’s sorry every time he thinks he messed up. Another visit to the club and to the dungeon makes Seth realize something that Malcolm realized years ago: home is the only place he wants to be sexual with his Daddy.
Just when everything is coming up roses, a tragedy occurs sending Malcolm into a dark place and putting Seth in the position of being the caregiver. Although not as good as Malcolm, he does everything he can to put a smile on Malcolm’s face. What happened I won’t reveal, how it was settled I also won’t reveal. I have to leave something for you to discover yourself.
There is a lot of sex, and in all honesty some I actually skipped over. I still loved the story and the two men who found each other. If a Daddy/boy dynamic is not your thing then I would not suggest this book even though it is not my thing and I loved it.
