Review: Love Slave for Two: Reckoning
Love Slave for Two: Reckoning by Tymber Dalton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
After a "National Lampoon" like vacation, returning home should be a relief, right?
Nevvie, Tom and Tyler survive the trip across country in an RV to return home to a couple of horrors. First, parts of Tampa, Florida are being evacuated due to Hurricane Edgar. The second problem is Nevvie's ex-boyfriend, Alex, who violates parole and is missing. As if this isn't enough stress, Nevvie is pregnant again with a couple bundles of joy. It is times like this a woman just needs a vacation from it all.
This latest and perhaps last installment of Love Slave For Two series is sweet with just the right amount of tension. Ms. Dalton deftly brings all the loose ends from the previous stories together into one united picture. The picture is of an ever expanding and loving family centered around Nevvie, Tom and Tyler. This threesome works and it is beautiful to witness. As new family members are found and added to the Kinsey-Paulson clan, the promise of new beginnings helps bring them close together.
The resolution to the conflict in this story is a long time coming. Ms. Dalton set it up early on yet doesn't overpower the story with dread. Instead, it's always lurking on the outer edges and just when the focus is on something else, she hits us with a quick one-two punch and runs away. It isn't a Ms. Dalton story if there isn't angst involved. In this story, the angst is lighter than some of her other stories, perhaps because the characters involved are ones that are not as beloved as characters in her other books. Still, the main characters are all well-developed and likeable. Even the frequent secondary characters hold a spot in the reader's heart.
The sexual content is erotically delightful. The reader is treated to several hot m/m D/s sex. This is a real treat – Tom and Tyler alone is steamy hot. The sex scenes fit in so well. Each scene enhanced the story by either relieving tension or bringing lovers back into alignment. When Nevvie, Tom and Tyler spend some quality time together after the hurricane scare, some explosive needs are fulfilled. It is hawt!
This story is truly a feel good happily ever after story. The epilogue shows how the family continues to grow, change and love. The story is best summed up in this lovely bit of musing from Nevvie.
Then she [Nevvie] always thanked the Universe for
the rough path she'd walked early in her life. She
wouldn't change a thing. She had a life full of love
and an ever-growing family because of it.
This erotic romance story is recommended to ménage lovers who want that happily ever after.
