Blurb : Following the death of their sub, the former owners of the Guards of Folsom, Robert “Bobby” Alcott and Rig Beckworth, were left to pick up the pieces as best they could. After seven years, these two Doms are ready to move on and find the boy who will complete them. Their painful past comes crashing back when they meet Mason Howard, a submissive who just weeks ago lost his Doms in a car accident.
Reeling from overwhelming grief that’s complicated by a severe social anxiety disorder, Mason can barely leave his home. When Rig and Bobby find him, he’s hit rock bottom, believing life is no longer worth living. Bobby and Rig set out to prove the younger man wrong. Fate has brought the three men together, but they’ll have to face the pain of fear and loss head-on before they can all truly live again.
My Review : There is one word that comes to mind when we first meet Mason and that’s Fragile. After being with both his Doms for twelve years, they’re suddenly taken from him in a car crash. Mason is adrift on a sea of loneliness and heartbreak. He is withering away in his little house by the beach from grief and his social anxiety issues.
When he meets vacationers Bobby and Rig, a couple of Doms, Mason is in a really dark place. He is laying drunk on his porch, trying to bolster his courage to commit suicide. Bobby and Rig come to the rescue of this desperate young man. They stay with him and even call in reinforcements in the form of another Dom, Max who is a shrink. They all help Mason to get to a place where even though he is grieving, he is taking it one step at a time , living each day as it comes.
Bobby and Rig are very patient with Mason. They form a bond with him that they have never had since they lost their sub seven years ago. Mason fills a hole in their life , he has renewed their spirits and their need to nurture a sub. But is Mason ready to take that plunge again? Mason is still dreaming about his Doms and feels guilty for the growing sexual tension. When Mason hurts his knee accidentally while rough housing with Rig, Rig feels personally responsible for his care and go full on in papa bear mode.
Things get pretty steamy when Mason sneaks off to masturbate in the shower to relieve some tension. He is almost at the pinnacle, when Rig barges in to help him because of his injury. Bobby hears the commotion and comes running, just in time to see their big , sticky problem. Bobby and Rig are filled with lust for the young man that has been playing havoc with their senses. Mason can’t resist Rig and makes the first move. They had one of the steamiest showers ever with all three of them getting exactly what they needed. Mason is still not sure he is ready to go into sub mode or use the honorific Sir, but he can’t deny the chemistry blossoming with the Doms.
In my opinion, I felt as if Mason had a stronger more sexual relationship with Rig whereas Bobby was more his haven , a big teddy bear to shield him from any storm. I still think something was missing from their relationship, but I think that worked to make it more realistic, because it shows that it takes time to get over grief of a loved one. It is actually a conversation with Ty, one of the subs, that gives Mason closure. Ty helped him to see that he didn’t have to let go of his former Doms in order to welcome and accept his new Doms in his heart. Rig and Bobby tag teamed Mason’s heart from the very beginning and that allowed him to give his total submission once again to two special Doms. I give this my ratings of 4 – lose the underwear.
Favorite Quotes : 1. The hard cock against Mason’s stomach twitched, and as if on cue, Bobby slowly went to his knees and nudged Mason out of the way but still held him close by wrapping his arm around Mason’s thighs. With his other hand, Bobby carefully pulled at the waistband of Rig’s shorts, exposing his very large, very hard cock. Bobby then pushed his own shorts down just enough to grasp his length in a fist and stroked himself as he took Rig into his mouth.( I can picture Mason watching these two Doms being so loving towards each other. Soo sexy.)
Rig and Bobby didn’t exclude Mason from their pleasure. Both men held him close, allowed him into their intimacy. Rig grasped his erection with one hand, guiding it slowly in and out of Bobby’s mouth as the fingers of his other hand tangled in Mason’s hair and held his head against Rig’s shoulder. Bobby continued to stroke himself while he massaged and kneaded the flesh of Mason’s thighs, ass, and lower back. Mason couldn’t remember the last time he’d seen or felt anything so beautiful. Once again, Mason was struck dumb by how these two men had come into his life, put his needs above all other things, and asked for nothing in return.( So very erotic and intimate watching these three men.)
