I couldn't wait to get to know Richard in this book. He was a distant enigma that just wanted Chris to be okay. While I wanted him to be okay. It was obvious to me that Richard needed love, and seeing him live his life so alone in this book broke my heart. And then he meets Sam.
Brave, innocent, perfect, adorable Sam.
It's so easy to fall in love with Sam. I didn't even have to think about it, he was sweet and so freaking adorable. He was so brave to do what he did (no spoilers). So innocent in so many ways, yet determined to not only get what he wanted, but to give Richard what he desperately needed—even if he didn't understand it at the time.
Until You Say Otherwise explores a D/s relationship and it is exactly what I look for in these types of books. There's so much trust between these two, even if they don't know each other that well. They just know. They know that they can just be with the other. There's nothing better than that. The trust, the connection—mental, emotional, and physical—between two people in this type of relationship are big reasons why I love BDSM books. Kate Hawthorne puts it all in and does it so beautifully.
Richard broke my heart. He wanted a relationship so bad, and when he meets Sam he's so perfect. But also so young. Richard battles with himself. His back and forth killed me. All I wanted was to see him get everything he deserved. He was so afraid of losing Sam, so afraid of his young lover remembering that he was fourteen years older than him that he almost didn't give them the chance. It was heartbreaking.
Sweet, adorable Sam sees what they can have, even if he doesn't understand it. Even if he wants to learn how to be Sam on his own.
It was hard watching them battle themselves, and so fulfilling to see them give in.
There are so many great scenes between Richard and Sam, both while they're playing and while they're not. One of my favorites might have to do with a buggy whip. I love me a good flogging scene and I really love when the whip comes out, but man, this one takes the cake, y'all. Hell everything in this book soared to my 'Top Favorite Scene' list. There's something else in this book that is so hot. I won't say because I had to wait to find out, it's only fair y'all do too. Let's just say it took something that I normally was 'meh' over and turned it to something I adored when Sam and Richard did it—particularly Sam.
I don't think there's anything else I can say about this book, about these two characters without giving too much away. I love how this book was more intense, more exploratory, with a completely different feel than the other ones. The small cameos and mentions about Chris, Aiden, and Bennet from Love Comes After helps but this book in the same universe as the previous three books, but it has a completely different feel to it. I love when an author can do that. When they can turn a series out in very different directions and still make it work, still have them all fit together.
Y'all will love Richard, you will adore Sam, all you have to do is pick this book up and read it.
Sam had to leave home because he could no longer put up with his step fathers derision. Living in his car, trying to find a job and not having a lot of luck. He's told he needs an address, so he finds a nice home and uses it for his paperwork. When he tries to retrieve a letter he gets caught by Richard. When he offers Sam a place to stay there is very little hesitation on Sam’s part. Richard makes him feel safe.
Sam finds a playroom and is intrigued. He begins a D/s relationship with Richard, accepting everything the man wants to do with him. Richard’s thoughts are that Sam was meant to be defiled and treasured. Sam just knows that Richard is as necessary to him as breathing.
This was a tough book for me to to review. I don't know a lot about the D/s dynamic but from what I've read on the subject it feels like the author did an excellent job of portraying it. Sam allowed the control to feel like it belonged to Richard but every interaction was designed for Sam’s gratification, thus fulfilling Richard's role in the relationship. Plus it's a really nice love story. I enjoyed the book.
Sam is down on his luck after leaving an unhealthy home. He is living in his car and trying to get a job to be self sufficient but the one thing that is holding him back is the lack of an address for job applications.
One out of the box idea from Sam and a chance meeting with Richard start these two on a journey that will change both of their lives for the better.
I loved Richard when we first met him in The Color Between Us and I could not wait to get to know his story. When we got to know him a little bit more as Chris's friend in Love Comes After I was counting down the days until I could read this book. When I thought no one would possibly top Roland in my world Kate gives us Richard. I loved this book so much and it is absolutely at the top of my re-read list.
