This author is still a favorite for me. There are so many wonderful stories to choose from. However, this is a no for me.
“S.I.R.” is a rather different D/s story. Many of the common elements of these stories are present, such as a troubled sub and a perfect Dom. Only, Sig isn't quite perfect. He isn't the mind-reading Dom often protrayed, who knows his sub's every thought and need. In short, he's human, so while the premise of the story may seem a bit outlandish, the characters themselves are a bit more believable than you might expect.
Based on previous books I've read by this author, I was expecting a slow burn, but this story turns up the heat within the first few pages and it's pretty much non-stop until the end. The kinky bits are pretty light, as the blurb promises. The book is more about D/s relationships and finding balance where many outsiders may see imbalance. The driving plot line is the need to ensure Hunter feels safe. Safe enough to reveal what is obviously a troubled past and start to think about what he wants, beyond pleasing his master.
The other somewhat unusual aspect of this story is the menage relationship. While not rare, it's still uncommon to see such relationships portrayed, and always interesting to see how they're handled. In this respect, Lavin is a key character. It's easy to see why Sig would want to care for Hunter, but if his first sub doesn't bond with the new boy, then it's going to be a rocky relationship. Fortunately, Hunter's situation makes it seem quite natural that Lavin would want to take him under his wing and be just as protective of him as Sig.
Owing to all the hotness, this is a rather quick read. The scenes and the emotional drama are enough to keep you reading to see what happens next. You have to suspend disbelief about the set-up, but that wasn't too hard given the believability of the characters themselves.
While most of her books have the same tendencies of timeframe, support person be it a psy or BFF, this one is different but still reflect her work. What happens when you put three people together that are actually both quite identical? Sig, Levin and Hunter seem to be cut from the same clots. Both in need for either dominance or submission, both so confident in their abilities to give that even though they doubt themselves sometime and both learning from each other. Even though it is written on Sig POV, Mrs Walker manage to spot in a way where we can definitely feel both Levi and Hunter desire, need, thoughts. The sex is off the charts and the play and games into the BDSM realm is epic.
And in this game, there are no losers, even for the reader. I highly recommend it and it's a 5 stars for me.
I'm not a big fan of bdsm books, but if NR Walker writes it, I will read it! Take the first sentence in the blurb to heart- this is definitely bdsm light.
Sir was a heartfelt story, so many more feels than I expected. Sig is wonderful with both Levin and Hunter, a strong, protective Dom who cares so much. My heart hurt for Hunter, for everything he'd been through in his young life- he was so sweet and darling and just wanted someone to show him they cared. Levin was a breath of fresh air- bringing fun and lightness into Hunter's life, and pushing Sig's buttons all at the same time. I really enjoyed the dynamic between the three of them.
I don't know if Ms. Walker ever plans to revisit this world, but I would be on board if she did!

So bearing that in mind, I gave this ago & yes, it's not badly written (as you'd get with a NR Walker book), it's just plain silly/daft. The idea of a Sanctum set up by a priest 400 years ago so he could do what he did with boys, just made my eyes roll and think of the less pleasant side of a certain religion that has had in the (recent) past a penchant for abuse. Then there was the whole control/submit/domination thing - it just makes me roll my eyes. - these 'boys' were treated like children in my eyes, it was just so silly...
So all in all, this has just confirmed that this kind of book/genre is really not for me. Go read if it's your thing, but to me it was just all so very silly.
The prologue timeline worried me, thought I was in for a historical, but no - just showing the origin story for the Sanctus. The story itself is between Sig, Dominant and great believer in the Sanctus, Levin, his insatiable and slightly cheeky sub, and Hunter, who really really needs someone he can trust to love him. All three are beautiful and beautifully-written personalities and following them through their first week was both wonderful and, in places, heart-rending. If hurt/comfort is your thing, you will get loads out of this, and if not then you’ll still love the relationship and interactions. As with all of Walker’s books, the quality extends to the other characters in the book so you really feel the full experience, not just an isolated threesome. I’m a particular fan of Ephraim and Louella, oh and Paul. You’ll meet them all.
Might start rereading straight away. Thoroughly recommended.
I have read a few BDSM books, but SIR took me to another world. This story was once again beautifully written by NR Walker
