Already questioning their relationship and what they do inside their bedroom, Braden starts to pull away. He shouldn’t want to do the submissive things that his lover asks for. Then Braden walks in on work and life partner, Rafe, with another man, and he reads it all wrong. He figures that Rafe has had enough of Braden never being there, of them never having sex or a relationship at all. Braden walks out. He walks away from the business they started together and from Rafe as well. Five years later life is about going through the motions, because he still loves Rafe. And Rafe is still in love with Braden, he wants a second chance, even if it might mean giving up his dominate ways. But can he really change who he is at his core? Or will he be able to get Braden to understand that he’s a submissive at heart. He has twenty-eight days on a cruise to try to win back the man he has always loved.
This story is beautifully written. The author takes you through the journey of their re-building a relationship. The story allows you to see each character’s perspective, their feeling and emotions. You understand how and why each of them feels the way they do. You also feel how much they love each other, how much outside influences, and what society deems as normal behavior, played a part in their breakup. This story is about more than sex or BDSM, although the sex scenes are hot. All around this is a wonderful story.
