Beautiful romance from Cara shows how love develops over years

HAA ebook coverHer All Along by Cara Dee

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is as beautiful as the cover and inside it contains a romance which reflects it perfectly.

It’s rare for me to read an MF romance, but Cara Dee is one of those authors I know will give me a true equal relationship where neither one is perfect and both stumble along the journey to happiness.

Here, it’s made more complex by a number of my favourite tropes, including an age gap, and a character choosing to redefine themselves to be better for their own benefit, not just because of love.

The length of time the relationship develops provides every bit of groundwork needed to show why, in the end, it’s always been her for Avery.

I’m not going into any specific plot spoilers, I’ll just say I absolutely loved everything about this book.

The pacing is just right, it has moments where you can viscerally feel the pain that the two go through at times for vastly different reasons.

You get to know the amazing Quinn family who have featured elsewhere in Cara’s connected universe.

And we meet a younger Darius, from before his experience with Gray, a time when he thinks his heart will never be touched.

And, ultimately, you get to see a relationship grow from friendship into love with no fanfare or great declarations, just honest affection, respect and support.

The best-selling Skins series is now available in a Box Set

Dream

When unrequited love leaves Dylan Hart sleepless and nursing his wounds, instinct draws him to the one place he’s found mindless respite in the past—Lovato’s. It’s a place for every fantasy—where a night of insane NSA fun with former ballet dancer Angelo brings relief to Dylan’s fragile feelings.

Friends to lovers, hurt comfort, angst.

Whisper

Lonely physiotherapist Harry Foster has the world at his feet. A full client list, a six figure Instagram following, and a publishing deal for a book he doesn’t have time to write until his agent offers him a break—a retreat to the wild south west coast.

Cornish horseman Joe Carter is lonely too. On paper, they have nothing in common, but Joe is beautiful…glorious, and when an accident puts his life in Harry’s healing hands, the whisper of true love is inevitable. If the trouble that put the farm on its knees in the first place doesn’t get in the way.

Friends to lovers, hurt comfort, horses, forced proximity.

Believe

Flight paramedic Rhys Foster is hooked on adrenaline. By day it’s blood and guts, by night it’s the thrill of the club. Entertainer Jevon Campbell is a play therapist like no other—dancer, magician, acrobat. Their connection is instant. As the days slip by, Rhys must learn to believe he’s worth the happiness Jevon is offering.

Friends to lovers, first times, men in uniform.

Crossroads

Angelo Giordano and Dylan Hart are more in love than ever. As the end of a tough year approaches, they reach a crossroads. Dylan returns to Cornwall for Christmas and Angelo can’t imagine watching him leave again. Can the love that surrounds them on Whisper Farm show them the way home?

Christmas novella, favourite characters, found family.

Cara Dee always leaves me “breathless” with her skill

Breathless ebookBreathless by Cara Dee

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve said it before, and will no doubt say it loads more times, but Cara Dee writes utterly superb kink.

Here she’s pushing all the boundaries in a Sado/masochistic triad which really holds no punches (pun absolutely intended) back in describing just how deep into the kink some people need to go to feel free.

Shay is a beautifully complex character, he’s bound tight in grief and survivor’s guilt, and while there’re echoes of similarly with Cole, Lucas and Kit, this triad is next level sadistic.

River and Reese absolutely fascinated me, I wanted to know everything about them, how they’d known they were sadists, why River’s kink was mental while Reese’s mixed Daddy care with brutality.

Together they were powerfully erotic, but also emotionally healing for Shay.

This book demonstrates beyond just the words how some people need BDSM to free themselves from the trials of life, anxieties, worries and misplaced emotions which can be damaging if left to fester.

I loved reading these three totally changing their lives to accommodate new feelings and new desires.

This series is shaping up to be an absolute classic.
