Dawn reviews Strangers In The Night by Jaycee Edward & Helena Stone, published by Dreamspinner Press on 11th March 2015, and is 60 pages long.
Book supplied free of charge by the publisher for an honest review.
When Army veteran, Slade, stumbles upon an isolated cottage on a cold, dark, night, the young man finds more than just the shelter he’s seeking.
Former club Dominant Callum is surprised to find a handsome stranger knocking at his door but invites him in despite his reservations. A nightmare reveals Slade’s deep-seated emotional issues, and Callum knows he needs to get creative if he’s going to help Slade leave the past behind.
Neither man is prepared for the feelings Slade’s introduction into the world of BDSM will unleash, and thirty-six hours will either be enough to bind them, or they will remain forever strangers in the night.
I have to say I read this book without reading any of the blurb, it was sent to me to review, so I just started reading – and I really did enjoy this story enormously.
I really did feel for Slade, for what he had to endure, but also for what he had lost. He came across as totally disillusioned, and had no idea of where he really wants to go or what he wants to do.
Walking around on a cold night, he is finding it hard to put one foot in front of the other, when he sees the roof of a house on front which he aims for. This is where he meets Callum, and this is start of something totally foreign to him.
Callum invites him to stay, and is drawn to Slade, especially as Slade seems to react well to being told what to do, and Callum being a former Dom totally loves this!! While Callum cares for Slade, he notices other little things about him, but most of all he sees that Slade is very vulnerable, and this brings out his protective side.
To help Slade, Callum suggests some BDSM, and after some explanations of what this actually means, Slade agrees. This is a whole new world to Slade, and although he feels afraid, he trusts Callum not to hurt him, and that he will be in control.
All seems to go well, but then there is a misunderstanding between the two men…… and Slade leaves……
Does he go back to Callum, or does Callum go after him?? You will have to buy the book to find out………….
Helena Stone can’t remember a life before words and reading. After growing up in a household where no holiday or festivity was complete without at least one new book, it’s hardly surprising she now owns more books than shelf space while her Kindle is about to explode.
The urge to write came as a surprise. The realisation that people might enjoy her words was a shock to say the least. Now that the writing bug has well and truly taken hold, Helena can no longer imagine not sharing the characters in her head and heart with the rest of the world.
Having left the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam for the peace and quiet of the Irish Country side she divides her time between reading, writing, long and often wet walks with the dog, her part-time job in a library, a grown-up daughter and her ever loving and patient husband.
