say this read was hot and melty does it a great disservice It was definitely those things oh yes, absolutely both those things It was meltingly hot And hotly melting What that doesn t describe is the incredible connection between Ash and Sawyer They each had a fa ade that they displayed to the world but the barriers dropped between them, right along with their drawers Not that they liked the knowledge that their innermost thoughts and desires was so easy to read Neither appreciated the fact that the other could see him in a way that no one else could Kindred spirits Ying to yang Let s just say explosive I didn t see you coming And I don t know what do to with you Whipping and fucking me would be just fine Ash s preppy exterior was part of the armor he used to hide his true self He was gay and not ashamed, however, his family was not so open minded Sawyer had no family to hide from, or love with, so any secrets he kept, he kept for his own reasons They saw in each other right away someone who could fill the darkest of their sexual desires, and they weren t shy about reaching out for what they both wanted Whether in the forest, at work, well, anywhere was fair game when feelings and desires were in play.Of course, that was only part of the story Work complications, family, their own hang ups about how things should be meant they were going to have to work extra hard to gain and keep what they found together And I wanted, needed, that for them The physical ness, the intimacy they had was sweet and loving and incredibly, beautifully rough around the edges He d plucked a dream from the sky and here it was, waiting for him Soaked in every touch and relished the intimacy he d deprived himself of for so long When Sawyer broke down in a certain scene and Ash was there to prop him up emotionally, physically I fell in love with this pair even.My new book boyfriends MINE Diane, 5 stars Asher Ruggiero has had to spend a considerable amount of time helping to run Adrenaline Kick Adventures which allows him to spend even less time with his family and to continue to hide his sexuality from them With all the work, Asher has allowed himself a little bit of play time, but no one has really appealed to him or his dirty, baser needs, wants and desires of late until Sawyer Stevens shows up as a summer rafting guide for Kick Sawyer needs a change of pace Since the tragic death of his family, Sawyer s only outlet, only pleasure comes from feeling the pain the pain from a Dominant A masochist, Sawyer moves from man to man trying to feel his way through life without attaching to anyone, but meeting Asher changes everything Sawyer thought he wanted in life But can he move past the pain of losing his family to open his heart to all that Asher can give him Is Asher willing to finally come clean to his family to really live the life he wants and deserves Oh, Asher and Sawyer You two broody, scared, gorgeous men got right under my skin from the first page Both of you afraid to live really live not just one day at a time, but with planning for the future I found myself wanting to reach in to the story to get these two in a room to really talk stop with the secrets and communicate They communicated beautifully in the bedroom fans self but outside of it they struggled But, jeez, once they finally started communicating really telling each other their truths, it was just so beautiful and I couldn t help but root for them to get it together I can t wait forof the Kick team in The Farther He Runs next up FINN Missy, 4.5 stars Scorching HOT Holy

the depths of erotica and BDSM that is included in this Not that I m complaining.This book was totally hot There were some parts of the book that delved deeply into the SM area that I didn t really care for but I love the connection that the two guys had for each other.The author knows how to heat up those pages and offer a deeply sensuous and scorching hot story that you are not going to forget It definitely makes me want to go back and read the first story in the series Kick 1.The author also managed to create two very different characters that were complete opposites in many ways and yet they manage to find a beautiful connection and complement each other in that delicate balance.This book is super hot and while I felt uncomfortable in a few areas, overall this is definitely a must read if you love a combination of M M and BDSM stories Wow just wow This was so muchthan S M Review to come Wow just wow This was so muchthan SM Review to come Favorite Quote I m going to give you so

and for the summer has left his Moab, Utah home and traveled to work with Adrenaline Kick Adventures, a company that takes folks white water rafting and other outdoorsy things This company is also known for He d agreed solely for the possibilities that came with working with a group of gay Doms A rumor Kick didn t advertise, but that still wound its way through the community.Sawyer is going to be a rafting guide and is happy to be out in the fresh, open air Years ago, a tragedy involving a fire, happened to his family, and Sawyer still has panic attacks when he smells smoke or sees fire This tragedy also led him to need to feel pain in his life Cutting himself to get that pain, he has now turned towards BDSM He isn t a sub, but he does like to be bottomed by someone who can deal pain to him A lot of pain This need and the rumors surrounding the type of men who work at Kick, definitely gets Sawyer interested Grady s unintentional confirmation of the gay Dom rumor had been the catalyst that d launched Sawyer out of his hermit zone He was here for eight weeks A short break in his routine A chance to explore and hopefully appease the unrest that was growing into a monster he couldn t control, before he lost the will to control it at all And maybe, if he played it right, Mr Preppy could help him out with that.This Mr Preppy fellow is our other hero, Asher By all appearances, Asher looks the opposite of Sawyer Mr Preppy stared intently at his computer, lips compressed into a firm stroke of concentration Papers were stacked on his desk in disorderly piles that contradicted the pressed lines of his dress shirt His dress shirt Seriously Sawyer glanced down at his own T shirt and cargo shorts, a smirk layering under his indifference He didn t even own hangers Hell, his flannels were his only shirts with buttons, and he rarely bothered with them.He is uptight, perfectly dressed, perfect hair and glasses He runs the technology side of Kick, and is also a sadist Into the BDSM scene, he loves to give out pain, but has been having trouble finding that perfect partner that wants what he has to give out Then walks in Sawyer They have this intense, crackling chemistry between them but both wary of the other Sawyer has heard of Asher s ways If the dude was the sadistic fuck he d been led to believe, then Asher would fit Sawyer s needs perfectly as long as he didn t have to call him sir When they meet at the local BDSM club, and they realize their needs are reflected in each other, they play together Asher gives Sawyer that pain he is looking for, and this gives Asher pleasure as well.Surprising to both of them, their pain play turns into deeper feelings, as Sawyer has to deal with his past and Asher has to admit that he isn t out to his parents or living the life they want for him.I thought Asher and Sawyer had the most intense, delicious chemistry They are both so guarded with their personal lives that sharing things about themselves is hard for them to do Sawyer has this reckless desire to be hurt refusing to give Asher limits or guidelines, which pisses Asher off to no end Asher wants to be a good dominant, which means there must be boundaries Sawyer starts to learn that taking pain to the point of harm is not healthy, and he can be fulfilled even with limits Their play together turns so erotic and not to use the word intense again, but intense I loved their scenes together.Slowly, the pain play turns into sex, and they realize they like to be with each other Sawyer hesitantly opens himself up and tells Asher about his past It s sweet and you couldn t help but root for Sawyer to get over his demons.A great erotic read.Grade B 4.5 stars This book, y all Holy hell talk about a hot, sensual, intense,

sooooooo incredible, and their story gripped me from the get go This one is VERY heavy, and the BDSM is not for the faint of heart, but it all worked so so perfectly and fit these two guys so fabulously well The power exchange between these two is profoundly deep and even though the sadism and masochism might be hard for some to understand, I found it beautiful and so well written.This is the second book of the series, but you absolutely do not need to have read the first one in order to fully appreciate these characters or the setting Which can I say, the whole extreme adventure angle is just so different, and I m really enjoying that aspect of these books quite a bit But back to Sawyer and Asher These two are so completely compelling Of the two, though my heart ached for Sawyer and his backstory, it s Asher who my heart bled for Acomplex, fascinating, and unique character I have not come across in some time His guilt, the heavy burden of his family s expectations of him, his dark desires, and his utter control over every aspect of his life completely drew me in It s not just the fact that looking at him in his dark framed glasses and button down shirts and neatly pressed khakis that you immediately think nerd only to find this fierce and intense Masochist hidden underneath, but it s the way he views himself and his needs that kept me so captivated I have never, in all my reading of BDSM, come across an explanation of masochism that truly made me understand like I did here in The Deeper He Hurts I ve used the word craving before when talking about the many aspects of BDSM before, but I m not sure that s entirely appropriate For Asher, this part of himself, and being able to have an outlet, is completely vital to his total self It s not happiness, it sthan that It s a settling of his soul and heart and mind and seeing him and Sawyer together, was indeed a beautiful thing to experience Yes the scenes and dirty talk and descriptions are hotter than hell, but it s so muchthan that Sawyer is broken and he s looking for anything to make him feel alive, even going so far as to harm himself and put himself in dangerous sexual situations When he realizes that Asher can be the one who can help him find the peace he s so desperate to find, he s both terrified and willing to do anything to keep him It s the dichotomy of these two, the push and pull, and the way they are such a perfect fit that really got to me They re both broken and searching, both surviving but not living, and definitely both aching to fill the empty parts of their souls Ash pulled off, glanced up to catch the molten gaze staring down at him He didn t need his glasses to see the passion that darkened Sawyer s eyes or the parted lips and heavy eyelids Just like with the pain, Sawyer didn t resist the sensations He embraced them all, wholly in the moment.The wonder of that rare quality sank into Ash with the awe it deserved He trailed his fingers down, the tips grazing over the scars on Sawyer s thighs How had it felt when he d inflicted them When did he learn the art of breathing with the pain, of processing the signals into something other than excruciating or intolerable Where did he store all those feelings Did they ever burst free Would anything anyone ever reach deep enough to break him out of the pain Ash was on his back, breath trapped, eyes wide before he knew what had happened Sawyer hovered over him, smirk blazing That dimple got him every time It hid and revealed so much at once You were taking too long, Sawyer explained in a smoky tone that crawled through Ash s groin To do what Anything All The Feels If you pick up The Deeper He Hurts simply to read some scorching hot BDSM scenes, then you re doing yourself a huge disservice This is a beautifully portrayed, brilliantly written love story It s a story about expectations, both your own and others, and being true to yourself I am quite in awe of how much I loved this story and how much respect Lynda Aicher has shown an aspect of BDSM that is most often misunderstood I cried, a lot There are so many emotions, so many feels The way Sawyer and Asher discover each other, the way they trust and communicate is something you don t often see, especially in a book about BDSM And their I love you s were some of the most satisfying I ve read in a long time I m still floating from how good this book was and I really can t wait for book 3 This review is also posted on www.prettysassycool.com and an ARC was received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

first book in this series, I was looking forward to The Deeper He Hurts I had some issues with the characters in the previous book, but I liked the world that Lynda Aicher had created and I was loving the idea of some kinky gay ex Marine Doms The Deeper He Hurts focused on the resident nerd and tech guru, Asher I never really got the nerdy vibe off of him, but rather that of a guy who was introverted and intense It showed in his work and how he liked to play His kink was pain, and he enjoyed watching it, giving it, and dissecting the after effects it had in his partners This makes it sound as if Asher was a serial killer, but he wasn t He was an interesting character, a good man, but he liked to explore his sadistic tendencies with a willing partner He was careful and caring, but living a double existence as he felt that his family would not understand either his needs or the fact that he was gay.Sawyer was the perfect match to Asher As a man with no family and a tragic past, he freely explored his needs without fear He was a masochist to the core, using it as his way of coping with the wounds of his loss, and he and Asher gave one another what they needed most They both feared getting too close to someone and caring for them, and were blindsided when their corresponding kinks turned into something much deeper What I found extremely interesting about these two is that they didn t play into stereotypes There wasn t a Dom sub aspect in their relationship but rather one who gave and one who took But the roles that each assumed in their play were not the same ones that evolved in their romance While Asher was a sadist who enjoyed giving pain, he was not a Dom, or even a top In their intimate relationships, Sawyer took on theaggressive role But even as the recipient of the pain that Asher doled out, Sawyer was never meek or subservient Rather he was taunting and strong, egging Asher on to give him what he needed I found this fascinating and appreciated that it allowed their relationship to transcend any labels This was a new take on an old kink and I loved it.While I did really enjoy this story, I did have a few issues with it First, I never fully understood why Sawyer came to Kick to work Was it strictly for the job Was it because he knew of their acceptance of his lifestyle Or was it specifically to seek out Asher And while Asher and Sawyer s kinks meshed perfectly together, I felt as if these two hadissues than could be resolved by some SM scenes and a romance I think they both needed some major therapy Overall, I really enjoyed this story and am looking forward to meetingof the guys from Kick They are dominant and rugged and kinky as hell Review copy provided for an honest review &FREE DOWNLOAD ☔ The Deeper He Hurts ↰ In this

Sawyer is hired as a rafting guide for the summer That scene when he enters Asher s office is bossSawyer s laugh burst free in a quick flight before he dug in to play And your knowledge is Asher leaned forward, clasping his hands on the desk Vast Massive Huge Enormous then Asher s lips twitched, a spark lighting his eyes, obliterating the stern formality And still growing See how fun They re flirting, they have chemistry, and the sexual tension is swirling around them Well, that s just about where the fun ends Because Sawyer has a tragic past which has led him to seek out pain in its most vicious form and Asher isthan happy to provide it Sawyer does not mix pain with pleasure He is just a hardcore pain slut Asher tries to infuse their play scenes with sexual pleasure, to combine the two, but Sawyer meets him with resistance They do have a very steamy sex life, eventually, but there is a disconnect in the formal scenes they want it for different reasons And that s where my problem was I am going to echo Dani s review because I had many of the same issues Their scenes were borderline torture, with Sawyer refusing to declare any hard limits And while there is no cure by magic dick, Asher ends up being the catalyst for Sawyer to address his issues I am not comfortable with BDSM being a way for people to cope with their distress It was very clear that Sawyer sought out this extreme pain because he wanted to punish himself and suffer And that s not sexy regardless of whether the scene ends with orgasms This was a very angsty, heavy book that was mostly challenging to read, if I m honest The HEA was good but it did not make up for pages and pages of hurt comfort and Sawyer turning Asher away I just wantedromance Read with cautionARC provided by the publisher via
