Kaden Thorn, a dental surgeon who lives a quiet life, has no hope of finding the love he craves. A vicious gay bashing cost him the use of his legs and confined him to a wheelchair. He has given up hope of finding a dom or even a non-kink partner to love him. When his best friend practically forces him to attend a dinner party, the last thing he expects is a strong dom who can see beyond his wheels.
Deacon James is an architect and a demanding dom, but he has spent the past couple of years without a sub or partner. When an employee invites him to a dinner party to meet his girlfriend, Deacon smells a setup but agrees anyway. He prides himself on being an excellent judge of character, and when he meets the younger dentist, he sees past the chair and finds a sweet submissive man who more than piques his interest.
Kade's fears and demons continue to haunt him, challenging Deacon to use everything he's learned as a dom to earn Kade's trust and submission. Deacon's determined, though, willing to battle all of it to have Kade by his side and at his feet.

I've read so many BDSM romances. Some good, some not. I respect the research Tempeste must have done to be able to write believable BDSM scenes involving someone who is handicapped. I also think she is either in the kink lifestyle somehow herself or did some good research there as well.
I loved both Deacon and Kaden. They were lovable in their own ways. I was glad Deacon suggested counseling because I did feel Kaden's lack of self esteem needed to be addressed.
I would have loved to see that after Kaden built up his confidence, he could let Katie know about his life as a sub. I really think she would have been accepting and supportive.
