John Wolfe is a dominant man of control, a pediatric neurosurgeon, and a man who loves his wife completely. In many ways, the night he met her when she collapsed in his arms, was the beginning of happiness for both of them.
Elizabeth, at twenty-three, is floundering for direction in her life. She attended college, where men were nothing but casual and meaningless sex, and left her empty. Still living at home, working a waitress job, has her parents flustered. The only means of escape from the pain and to feel in control is when she is cutting herself. One night, she goes too deep and is taken to the ER where she will meet John as he is leaving the hospital. Salvation comes from his dominance.
Devan Carthy, a man who has a brilliant mind, is a very talented artist, but suffers manic depression and is bipolar, has walked away from his wealthy family, and worked so many jobs as he draws and paints. When he is heavily medicated to control the depression, he can’t paint, making his moods even darker. Poked in the eye during a bar fight will lead to a severe eye infection that is causing him to go blind. No medical insurance prevents him from the care he needs, but what good is an artist who is blind and can’t see what he paints? An unlikely couple will spin this tale from one sketched drawing.
“It’s a constant battle inside me between good and evil, angel and demon.”
The plot will bring these three characters together under unusual circumstances, and all three will need each other in their own special way. This erotic story has many dark and moody moments as the reality of depression, mental illness, and an aggressive tumor will collide into a life-saving ordeal. The love and affection between John and Elizabeth, along with their D/s lifestyle offers a yin and yang of their sadomasochistic relationship. “You knew what I needed before I even did.”
The love of one man for his beloved wife will have him finding a man, Devan, to be there for Elizabeth on the one year anniversary of his death. He will provide for Devan and give him a chance for his future. All he asks is to make her happy because he knows his death will lead to her sinking into a deep depression and seeking to follow him in death. Devan will inadvertently find his way to the Wolfe’s barn, and while unconscience, still save Elizabeth from taking her life, and even give Devan a reason to live. Can one man’s death, help free two souls from the dark prison of their minds?
“You will haunt me anyway, for the rest of my days.”
These days it's hard to find an author who can tell a compelling story while doing deep characterizations. Tiffany York presents her characters deeply. Even if the topic is new to you, it's a must read.
Carla's Four Star Review
Elizabeth has always struggled with extreme anxiety along with a lack of self worth. That all changes when she meets and later marries Dr. John Wolfe. He provides Elizabeth a very unique outlet when her demons try to get the best of her. I love the feelings that these two share for each other. They have that once in a lifetime all consuming love. They couldn't be happier until fate steps in and deals them a cruel and devastating blow.
Devan Carthy was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. His family's lifestyle was one of great wealth and opulence. When he revealed his desire to become an artist, his family was far from accepting. He leaves home and ends up in San Francisco. It is here where he meets John and Elizabeth. From the moment he first sets eyes on Elizabeth, she takes his breath away. She becomes his muse, and to say that he becomes obsessed with her would be an understatement. In a strange twist of fate, John shows back up in Devan's life and befriends him. He and John enter into a strange relationship that eventually brings Elizabeth into Devan's daily life.
From the title of this book, one might think this is a story filled with sex, sex, and more sex. While it does contain a few BDSM scenes, it is so much more than that. It is a story of loss and grief, of desperation and finally hope. This is my first time reading anything by Tiffany N. York, and it certainly won't be the last! Ms. York knows how to craft a story that will draw you in from the very beginning and keep you glued to your kindle until the very end.
Overall, I enjoyed this story, and I would highly recommend it to a friend or fellow reader. Outstanding job, Tiffany!
It hooks you in with the strong and loving relationship between Elizabeth and the man who is her world, John, only for that world to crumble and break in such a heartbreaking manner you are left reeling. Then Devan arrives. There under an agreement with John, things take an interesting turn for him and Elizabeth as they wade through the emotional turmoil of their lives and tackle some very hard issues that Tiffany manages beautifully well.
I will admit, at times I preferred the much more dominant John and his relationship with Elizabeth over Devan's but both men are so vastly different and you realise that John knows these two need each other for the love and support they can offer one another. There are elements of BDSM but don't let that put you off as the key element of this book is not about the kink or the sex but about love, heartbreak and learning to trust.
A beautiful romance and I hope to read more by Tiffany in the future!
