Publisher's Summary

Gideon McCade - weighed down by memories of his previous life as a Navy SEAL and a CIA agent - has blood on his hands. He turns to his BDSM club, Catharsis, and Dominating submissives to get him through the daily grind of civilian life. Knowing his past is too much to inflict on a life partner, he keeps his connections brief and superficial. When his former life comes back to haunt him, his desire for revenge pulls him back into the shadows, darkening his hopes for a future in the light.  

Temporarily sidelining his career as a tattoo artist, Sebastian Phillips works as a composite artist for the local police department. To alleviate the inescapable burden of a congenital medical condition, he immerses himself in his art and seeks the catharsis of submission. But with life weighing heavily on his shoulders and darkness encroaching, he yearns for a contract with a Dominant that sees past the protective barriers he's erected to the vulnerable submissive within.  

When happenstance brings Gideon and Sebastian together, their connection is undeniable. The knowledge that they are both too damaged to form permanent bonds of love causes them to rely on an impersonal contract to fulfill their physical needs. But staying emotionally detached becomes impossible, and breaking their contract seems the only option. Will Gideon's need for vengeance and Sebastian's declining health destroy what's grown between them, or will they help each other find their way back into the light?  

Contains mature themes.

Great Book But To Long

The book was good however it was far to long. I found myself skipping parts that I thought were unnecessary. I love Luna David books and will continue to read the author however I loved the first to books in the series but this one not so much.

My first audible

I chose this book as my first audible trial because it's one of my favorites. I was a little disappointed with the audible voice. It just wasn't a sexy voice. I wish Ms. Luna would add new books to this series.

Troubling and boring at the same time

The performance was terrible. No unique voices. And the one voice the narrator used sounded like a 1970's soap opera star. The lead character Gideon is deeply warped into thinking he has a Jesus complex with a complete lack of understanding of anything in the world around him. His object of affection, Sebastion, is a troubled guy who Gideon literally forces, with the worst timing, into a 'contract'. If you dont like the word contract do not read this book. Its used in almost every paragraph. This is a BDSM book maybe? There is endless talk of Dom's and sub's and contract but half way through the book there was one rather mild scene that was wierd at best with yet another endless contract talk. I made it to chapter 18 of 43 and gave up on it. IF I could get a refund on the credit I would.

Skip this book.

From tears to cheers

It is rare for me to submit a full review but this story moved me in so many ways, I felt compelled to do so.

It took a few chapters to fully engage in the storyline but when I did, I was totally captivated by Sebastian and Gideon’s story. The author took me from heights of ecstasy with these two characters to the depths of despair. I laughed; I cried, I cheered!

Well done and well worth the read/listen. Tristen James nailed it. Thank you!!

Hot hot hot

I am a fan of BDSM romances and this one doesn’t disappoint. Sebastian and Gideon are a great couple who have to overcome personal trauma before having their happily ever after.
There are a tease of several characters who express interest in the BDSM club so fingers crossed 🤞 that one of them will be in another book. I’m seriously praying for Aiden’s story, the oh so mysterious youngest McCade brother.
Luna David is a total treat and I love all her writing!!

Great book

I loved that book the first time I read it and got it in audible as soon as it was published. I think that it should have been narrated with more different tones, it's quite plain narrated and the story deserves to be narrated with more passion, showing more the feelings, the emotions of the characters. However I still recommend it

Saving Sebastian

This book is So Good, and even better in Audio.

Tristan James really does this book justice with his narration. I've read this book several times before. But I fell even more in love with it after the narration he gave us for these two men. I think he did an amazing job, especially for this one being on the longer side. I did not want to pause it, and my attention was fully on this book the entire time. Great Freaking Job!! My favorite out of all Tristan's books I have now.

Sebastian goes through so much in this book from the beginning right through to the end and it just tugs non-stop at your heart, you cannot help but fall in love with him. He's one of my absolute favorite characters. I just want him to find love and be loved, he really deserves every bit of happiness.

Gideon, I was really not sure how I felt about Gideon at first, even after reading and listening to this numerous occasions he really does take some time to thaw your heart to him from his actions. I think he's perfect for Sebastian though, but him realizing it and getting to that point is a serious struggle. He has so many demons that he just doesn't realize how great he is and that he is exactly what Sebastian needs. These two have some amazing chemistry and are extremely hot together.

Desperately needs an editor

You have to really want to finish this book. It is absurdly long. The premise of the plot has potential, but every single plot point gets dragged out beyond belief. I found myself struggling to stay engaged and skipping sections without seeming to miss anything. This book is crying out for an editor to cut out a third or more of the text.
