"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

I’ll be the first to admit that I haven’t yet reached a limit in what I’ll read. Taboo, schmaboo. As long as the writing is passable, I’m ok with it. Here, however, I started feeling slight niggles of that feeling that makes me squint my eyes and worry my lip. Not that I stopped reading it. Not at all. Not that I have an issue with people going for what they want and need to live fulfilling lives. It’s just the introduction of diapers makes me a bit squirmy, makes me bite my lip. And this is not in a turned on way, as might usually be the case if I’m squirming and biting my lip.
So we have a young man, Eric, who has been hurt in the past by letting his desires be known. Desires that involved having a Daddy to care for him as a father would for a little kid. He is a Little. He wants a Daddy Dom. Lucky for him he meets Marcus who is seeking a little to settle down with.
Most of this book involves Marcus both pushing Eric and giving him the space he needs to be OK with desiring the things he wants, since Marcus wants them too. Things such as playing with toys, and bath time, and bottles, and jammies, and binkis, and diapers. Marcus has a nursery all set up and ready to go, it’s just waiting for the right boy. Will Eric be the one?
This book definitely pushed my boundaries, which I think is a good thing. I did find parts of this sexy, others I frowned at. As a parent, I only wish it were so easy to parent a child as it is in these relationships (without the sex, of course). No tantrums, no whining, always obey your parent. But then, this isn’t a parent child relationship, this is an adult age play lifestyle.
Will I read the second book? Eric still hasn’t found his “normalcy” yet by the end of this one. I’m not sure. Maybe. But I’m OK leaving this story where it is for now.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book (as well as the sequel - Quiet Strength), and I was glad that I ordered Flawed Perfection (with Nathan and Gabriel) and read it inbetween these two, since it seemed that was actually the correct reading order.
I think what drew me in so much with all three of these books is the way the author made it feel so right and natural for the characters.
Eric needed so much to feel loved and cared for, but was so afraid to ask for and openly seek out what he needed. Marcus was so very ready to be a "Daddy" to someone who needed it. The characters and the lifestyle were just so well written and presented. I am not into Age Play in real life, but even i could appreciate the draw of being cared for in that way. I wouldn't have minded being Eric, if I could have a Marcus.
I actually got this book when it was free, and I am so very glad I did. It's not something I would have actively searched for, but I saw it on my daily Bookbub email and decided to download it since it was free at the time. I wasn't even a third of the way through this book before I was checking to see what else this author had written. That is how I bought Flawed Perfection (Nathan's story) before I bought Quiet Strength).
I have since read all three of the above mentioned books, as well as the Too Close series (LOVED IT!), and it was then that I realised MA Innes also writes as Shaw Montgomery, so I checked out her books under that name and ended up buying the Bound and Controlled series as well, which is what I am reading right now.
I absolutely love this author, no matter what she is writing about or which name she is writing under. There is just something so alluring and natural about the way she describes the various kinks and desires. It reminds me that there is no such thing as "normal". Everyone has their own thing.
I especially loved that about her Bound and Controlled series - where the Doms and Subs are not the 'normal' ones you expect. Even within the BDSM community, these characters are a little 'weird' and out of the box. Love it!!
