This book started out difficult for me. Eli looks for someone to serve him, and Jarod looks for someone to serve. It sounds like an easy setup, but it wasn’t. Eli acted stupid and immature, and I simply couldn’t like him. He made so many mistakes that I had real trouble believing he is a good Dom. Why Jaord stays with him wasn’t really clear for me. I would’ve told him to go learn how to treat another person, sub or not, and then come back. Sadly, K.C. and Parker gave away so many chances of making this a truly beautiful story.
Yes, Eli grew and started to realize what he had in Jarod, and Jarod in turn starts to trust his new, younger Dom, but still, for me the damage was done. I tried to like it, I really did, but this book only earned 3.5 stars from me.
