As a reader, I appreciate a strong female Heroine, be she submissive or Dominant in nature. Regina stands out on the page as a confidently Dominant woman who does not compromise any aspect of her life, including the man with whom she can share it completely. And even though Marius struck that chord, and even though she went all-in to reach the man at the core, she knew she could, and would, walk away intact if he would not see himself.
Marius is a power sub. To the core. Like Regina, he is a 3-D character and as is the case in most of Ms. Hill's books, being a consumer of the story is like being a fly on the wall of the lives therein. Investment in Marius' journey is a given...said the spider to the fly...and to watch this truly gentle man-at-heart find himself; find a way to understand himself, is a thing of beauty. Life was harsh for him, people were harsh to him, and no one was harder on Marius than Marius himself. Time, patience and a supremely confident Dominant gave him the security to accept what his past had dealt him, but more importantly, to accept and embrace what his future could hold if he believed himself deserving.
I really loved this journal-of-life, and it more than merits in place among the stories that show us "The Nature of Desire".
As she advertises, Ms. Hill has provided us with absorbing characters who not only attract fans of the BDSM genre, but readers who would "never" read BDSM romance. I happily will recommend this book to my friends!
This is the first D/s book that I've read that truly delineates that relationship - her writing allows the reader to understand why someone as strong as Marius needs a commanding, loving hand as his Domme. The journey the two of them go through to get there is at times gut-wrenching, and other times is simple and sweet. Every time I had to put the book down, it was a wrench to do so (and I was late to work yesterday because of it, lol).
This is the second of Joey's books that I've read, and now I need to go back and get them all.
With her inimitable flair for language, her deep understanding of the workings of the minds and bodies of her protagonists, Ms Hill once again shows her skill and dedication to her craft.
With agonizigly slow steps she shows a deeply scarred sub, with his selfdestruct-button firmly pushed, and a skilled Domme, set on the task of getting him off the ledge. She provides the boy, drowning in violence and guilt, a liferaft to safe himself, and finds that in helping him find his way, she gets herself a reward beyond expectation.
As the story is set within the The Zone, we get to meet old friends and aquaintances of this circle, and visits from a "Knight" and his sub, and a certain "dogtrainer" with personal experience of PTSD.
Interspersed with the D/s dynamic we get Ms Hills very sensual and downright furnace level, play scenes.
And all this together makes this book a well written, well researched, absolutely sumptuous piece of work.
It is everything one is used to, and expecting of Ms Hill.
TRULY HELPLESS is an excellent addition to the Nature of Desire series and it is a treat to see so many characters from previous installments, sort of like a warm, fuzzy old home week. That too is a tribute to fine writing. (Hill can even make you root for of all things, vampires.) But I digress and that's another series altogether, obviously. When it comes to this one, five stars just won't cut it. TRULY HELPLESS is a ten, twenty, thirty star winner. Nature of Desire has been enriched with this addition. Brava, Joey!
