It is a lovely slow build to romance, and the intensity between the two of them is always present to keep the reader interested. They are dependent upon each other to create a new reality, now that everyone else they loved is gone. Along the way, they learn important truths about themselves that help them find their happiness. I loved both characters, and I loved this book.
I did NOT receive an ARC. I reviewed this book because I loved it!
The underlying kink and tension in the most normal, everyday actions of Kayne and Jasper had my adrenaline pumping. I think I even fogged up my kindle screen breathing on it too hard.
Jasper, 32, is made guardian to 17 year old Keyne (pronounced Cain), a senior in high school whom Jasper's known since the day she was born. Terrible events threw them together, and as each struggles to carry on, Jasper discovers feelings he's ashamed to have for his ward.
So yeah, I adoooore this type of plot when done well. The taboo of guardian/ward, older man, BDSM, and kink is a combination for greatness which this author pulled off with aplomb.
Out of all the taboo relationship stories (teacher/professor/student, step/step, etc.) I've read to date, this one is now my favorite.
Although, the last 15-20% had my romantic little heart going apoplectic. I read it thinking, "What?! No, no, noooo." But then the reasonable part of me, the one who enjoys a great story and knew it all made sense, nodded it's prim head and thought, "Uuhm-huh. How intuitive of him."
Even with this inner turmoil and conflict, my heart went out to Jasper and Keyne and their beautiful story. I loved it, and am shelving it for a future reread.
Jasper isn't that much older than Keyne and getting custody of her isn't all that easy, especially when there's an uncle that wants her too. But Jasper and Keyne manage to convince the judge that he'll be the best guardian for Keyne.
These are some rough times for Keyne, as she deals with her grief and all the changes that come with her circumstances. Rough times for Jasper too, as he gives up his kinky lifestyle and partying to do the right thing by his new charge.
When Keyne's nightmares drive her to find Jasper in the middle of the night, he's tempted and torn, but he manages to keep everything beyond reproach, that is until Keyne decides she wants him on her eighteenth birthday..
While His Custody flirts with with impropriety, it never quite gets there and I appreciated that. The kink that eventually becomes a temptation for both Keyne and Jasper made for a very interesting situation between these two.
I seriously loved how this book brought things to a conclusion. My heart hurt for Jasper and Keyne and their pain was portrayed beautifully by the author. Sometimes doing the right thing hurts.
I adored the gothic feel to this story, with Jasper the older, experienced male and Keyne the young ward. There were only a handful of secondary characters, which made for a laser focus on the compelling love story between Jasper and Keyne. The spotlight was on them for the entire book, and I really liked that about His Custody.
If you are looking for a kinky tale with a dash of darkness and light, His Custody might be for you. The writing will keep you turning the pages, and Jasper is very hard to resist.
