Jonty and Jed are both tied to the sea for different reasons. One out of fear and the other because he rescues others like Jonty. The question is, can Jed pull Jonty out of his guilt and show him that he still has so much life to live?
I highly recommend you one click this book today. 4.5 stars.
Poor Jonty. It’s impossible not to feel for him from the very first page. Not the most self-assured of men to begin with, whatever confidence in himself he does have sinks with the ship that goes down, taking his parents and sister with it. Overcome with survivor’s guilt, Jonty hides from the world and concentrates on his painting until he runs into Jed.
Jed is Jonty’s opposite in every possible way, and exactly what Jonty needs to reclaim a place in the world. Confident and strong, Jed takes one look at Jonty and makes up his mind that he can and will restore the shy and withdrawn man.
The journey these two men undertake together is as hot as it is heart-warming. Jonty yearns for Jed’s dominance and feels able to start living again, as long as he has Jed’s support and guidance. At the same time, Jonty is everything Jed could have hoped for; both submissive and bratty, he pushes all of Jed’s buttons in the most delightful way.
While the book started with a heartbreaking disaster, I wouldn’t call this a sad or angsty story. This is a tale about hope and recovery rather than one of pain and hardship. While my heart broke for Jonty when the book started, I enjoyed every single moment of the subsequent journey these two men undertake together. The combination of sweet and sexy was just about perfect. I smiled, blinked away one or two tears, and completely lost myself in their story.
I already had very strong suspicions that LM Somerton wrote the best bratty subs, and Owned by the Sea and Jonty removed any doubts I might have had. But, now that I’ve finished the book I have to admit she writes the best dogs as well. I challenge any reader to read this book and not fall head over heels in love with the huge, always hungry, and lazy ball of fluff that is Marmite, Jed’s Newfoundland dog.
Touching, sweet, sexy, funny, kinky, and uplifting, Owned by the Sea was an utterly delightful read featuring three very memorable MC’s (yes, I do include Marmite), a stellar cast of secondary characters, and a stunning setting. The two Easter eggs — one referring to Tales from the Edge by Somerton and one to another favourite BDSM series of mine — put a huge grin on my face. And while the book description says this is a stand-alone story, I would get very excited if Jonty and Jed were to show up in either of those clubs. Js J
I highly recommend Owned by the Sea to anyone who enjoys their romance with a healthy dose of kink and characters who will stay with you even after you’ve finished reading.
This book has three amazing characters. Jonty, Jed, and Marmite. Jonty is the shy painter, drowning in survivor guilt, being the sole survivor of the tragic accident that took his parents’ and sister’s life. He is adrift, and the only thing that keeps him going is his art. Until he meets Jed, carpenter and, unbeknownst to him, his rescuer as member of the rescue service.
Jonty and Jed are so beautiful together. Their connection is palpable, and it gave me all the feels. Jonty needs someone to ground him, to care for him, to give him peace. Jed is the perfect man for the task. He is the one who needs to take care, take charge. As in all L.M. Somerton’s books, there are quite a number of kinky scenes, but nothing to the extreme. It feels so natural, so casual really, how Jed tells Jonty what to do when Jonty needs it, and Jonty follows him blindly. I felt the stillness and calmness coming over Jonty. So in tune are these two men. But Jonty still is a bratty, cocky man, or I should say his real nature is emerging. The growth in him is remarkable. He always will be a shy one, but with Jed by his side, he can more than survive. He can live.
It brought tears to my eyes and broke my heart. How brave can a man be who lost everything? And then I was laughing out loud from their dry and quirky banter. Even during the intense sex scenes, they had a snappy comeback.
Jonty and Jed have found their place in my heart, but the one who might top that is Marmite. Marm, Jed’s Newfoundland. He is adorable as big as he is. The story wouldn’t be the same without him in it. He doesn’t say much, but his actions speak louder than words.
The setting of this book is stunning. The day-to-day life in a small town at the ocean is beautifully painted. I could feel the wind in my hair and the smell of salty sea air tickled my nostrils. The feeling of community is everywhere. How lovely is it that the citizens are all coming together, whether to wait for the rescue boat and their loved ones to return, or to step up to help Jonty make his auction a success. It is a village I would love to live in.
