Quick recap: Kaden and Leah are married almost 20 years. Kaden finds out he is dying of cancer and asks his lifelong best friend Seth to move in and gradually step in as not only an addition to their family but an eventual replacement for him when he's gone. Seth reluctantly agrees because he can never say no to Kade. However, he didn't know the d/s lifestyle Kade and Leah were living. Not because they get-off on pain and dominance, but because Leah had a horrendously abusive upbringing and in order to keep from hurting herself so she could feel her emotions, Kade had to take care of that part for her in a safe environment so she could cope and feel safe and secure. (of course this all goes WAY deeper than that...) Seth has a difficult time not only coping with Kaden's illness but his growing feelings for Leah and also becoming the Master and partner he knows he needs to be in time to take care of Leah.

I don't even know where to begin. This was an intensely emotional story. I know that I have NEVER cried so much reading a book. I didn't know what to expect. Not so much in to the BDSM genre myself, but this was a story only "navigated" by that lifestyle for unusual purposes. It was appropriately tweaked and adjusted for what their needs were in their unique relationship. The underlying emotion was just an overpowering love between all these characters. One of both friendship and passion and loyalty. It was out-of-this-world gut wrenching yet powerfully romantic and passion-filled. It's a tough journey for these three. And it was an extremely long book,in my opinion. However, every page was needed for this amazing story. I had no trouble hanging in there and grasping each and every word and detail. It will probably take me a few days to recover! READ IT, DON'T MISS THIS ONE!

Amazing job, TD!!! I just can't say enough. You must have needed a vacation after writing this one.

For over 40 years, Kaden and Seth have been best friends. First as boys, and then as men, they know they can always depend upon the other in times of need. And need is what brings them together one night when Kaden reveals the news that he has cancer and it is terminal. If that news is not bad enough, Kaden's request has Seth thrown for a loop. Never realizing exactly how Kaden and his wife of twenty years have lived their married life, Seth is amazed to find out that Kaden and his wife Leah are more than just husband and wife. They are Master and slave. And Kaden is asking Seth to take over once he is gone.

Seth balks at fulfilling Kaden's request. He doesn't want any part of what Kaden is asking. It isn't until he begins to see the day to day actions of Kaden and Leah that Seth begins to understand exactly what being a Master means. Having loved Leah almost as long as Kaden, Seth finally realizes that there is nothing he wouldn't do for his best friend, or the woman they both love. It is with this capitulation that Seth's training at becoming Leah's Dom begins.

I have to stop my explanation of THE RELUCTANT DOM right here. To say anything else would spoil the story. Know that this is one of the most emotionally gripping novels I have read in a long time. Sobbing more than once at the sheer intensity of the characters and the plot, never have I read a book that has affected me as much as THE RELUCTANT DOM. Without a doubt this book made me think. It made me see past the end of a life and what happens to those left behind. THE RELUCTANT DOM made me see honest to God, true, unconditional love. It was breathtaking.

leah was horrably abused as a child, and never learned how to express her emotions in a good way. when kaden and leah fall in love he realizes that she is a cutter, the pain she inflicts is her only way to get her emotions out. kaden takes to spanking her to keep her from cutting and permanently harming herself. over the years they fall into a d/s realationship.kaden takes care of everything for her and makes sure she always allright. then kaden finds out he is dying and knows he has to find someone to take his place in leahs life to take care of her when hes gone.kaden and leah choose kadens bestfriend seth. leah has always had feelings for seth and trusts him as much as she does kaden. seth has always loved leah but never admitted this even to himself, so when approched by kaden to take over for him seth is shocked, they kept their lifestyle secret from everyone even though they practice their lifestyle 24/7. seth agreas to step in for kaden when the time comes, although reluctantly.seth is confused about the d/s lifestyle yet has to learn everything in a matter of months. seth tries to talk kaden out of the whole thing until he realizes that this realy is the only way to protect leah.this is not a story about a couple who get off on pain and humiliation. this is about 3 people that will do anything to protect their loved ones no matter what that may be. i had to set this story down several times just to get my emotions under controll however as soon as i picked the book back up the tears started all over can trully feel every emotion literally came off the page as you read. kepp a box of tissues with you at all times, this is heartwarming, and heartbreaking all at the same not miss out on this storey.
