Younger Daddy/Older Boy with feelings and a bit of age-play.

There are so many wonderful feelings present in this book. I loved the caring aspects and especially loved the care Bern lavishes on Devon and the true emotions were wonderful to read. I love a good Daddy bear and Bern was so dominant and delicious. That said I felt a little uncomfortable with the Daddy/little relationship, it felt a little forced to me. Bern knew what he wanted (and more power to him) but I was uncomfortable with the force he went about obtaining Devon and something about their connection just didn’t sit right with me. It didn’t really feel organic to me.

I do love the difference of a younger Daddy and older boy and I’ve been spoilt with some of the stories I’ve read that this one just didn’t do it for me. That being said the story features great writing, detailing and wit. The characters are loveable and I especially liked Bern and his father’s relationship, even if I could never imagine such a connection in my real life. I was intrigued by J.M.’s style and characters and will be interested to see what else they create in the future.

I locked myself in my house and went to take care of emails and study my itinerary. I could retire, but what would I do with myself? At least work kept me busy. It distracted me from the loneliness. I worked because I had nothing left.

I took a seat at my drafting table as I worked on the new design for my client. His steel monstrosity would clash with everything around the building. It was a showpiece that had no more value than broadcasting his wealth. Once again, my brain went back to wondering if it was time to retire, maybe working for myself, but I felt I was too old to start over. All I felt was doubt and insecurity.

When I was younger, I’d felt confident and fearless. Every day was ripe with possibility, and now I weighed everything by what was expected of me. I felt as if my life was over with; I wasn’t even fifty and hopelessness weighted me down. When I looked in the mirror, I could only see what I was and not what I could be. That, out of all the recent events, was the hardest reality to accept. I viewed myself through a skewed lens Lawrence had shaped.

My fantasies were still a cause of shame just as they were for the past thirty years. I’d forbidden myself from demanding what I wanted because what would people think when they knew the real me. The person who existed beneath the façade. The respectable architect in a small suburb who was just a shadow of his former self.

I was a middle-aged man with silver-streaked hair and a belly, who dreamed of the impossible. I tossed my pencil aside and got up. My mind wasn’t in it, so a shower and early to bed. Tomorrow was a new day.

That normal is never normal and sometimes the so-called broken can still be amazing.
