SPOILER ALERT: THIS IS THE CONCLUSION OF BOYD AND CALEB'S STORY BEGUN IN INDIFFERENCE OF HEAVEN, BOOK #68. THAT BOOK DEFINITELY NEEDS TO BE READ BEFORE THIS ONE. IF YOU HAVEN'T, THIS REVIEW WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS.
Boyd and Caleb have finally embraced their love and kinkiness. But will anything ever be simple for these two? Boyd's still Caleb's direct superior at work. That simply CAN'T come out. There's a way to fix this, right? Caleb's spent his entire life in the closet. He won't hide his love for the man who's stolen his heart! But that's soon the least of their problems. Ella Stinton reappears. She disappeared after dropping the bombshell that Boyd's her father. Boyd's never doubted Ella. She's his spitting image. But Ella's added a level of complexity to an already complicated relationship. Can Caleb accept Ella's presence in Boyd's life? Surprisingly, that's the least of either man's worries. Soon, the perfect storm of events hits, threatening everything. As Boyd flies to Oregon to get to know his daughter better, Ella reveals a secret that has the potential to destroy everything. And there's someone out there who'll do anything to be sure that secret never sees the light of day. Even with Boyd's support, Ella's secret comes out, and she's never been in more danger. As Boyd and Caleb prepare to move Ella to Florida, neither Boyd nor Caleb can possibly know what's in store. Can things get any worse? Oh, yes! Even from over 200 miles away, Caleb's homophobic family is still trying to destroy his life, with Boyd and Ella caught in the crossfire. With so many threats coming from every possible direction, how can any of this work? Will Boyd and Caleb's jobs ever let them live openly together? What about Ella? Can Caleb accept her as part of their family? And just who is willing to do what to keep Ella's secret from coming out? There's only one way any of this can work. Boyd and Caleb's love, belief, and trust in each other have to be rock solid for life. Ella has to trust that her father and Caleb both love and accept her, will protect her, but still allow her the autonomy she needs. Far less stress has broken far stronger relationships. The question is, do Boyd and Caleb have what it takes not just to love each other but to have the family both desperately want? It will take faith, belief, and trust the likes of which are seldom seen. Are any of them capable of that? Because, in the end, that's the only thing that will save all three!
From the second I finished Indifference of Heaven, I was on pins and needles waiting for Like the Seasons. It so worth the wait! Boyd and Caleb had already fought so many battles with so many obstacles still to come. You desperately want things to work out for these two. As roadblocks, danger, petty grievances, and hate are thrown in their paths, you get the sinking feeling that none of this can ever work. Just when you start to think, "Yes, finally," another crisis arises. Each has more potential than the last to completely ruin everything. As level-headed and calm as Boyd has always been, he's never had to cope with the things he now faces. Caleb? He's hidden his entire life, afraid of what others think. But is he more than even he realizes? And Ella? Self-sufficient, driven, she's always been confident, independent, not needing anyone. But is that even possible now? Boyd, Caleb, and Ella are so very different but soon learn they need each other like the air they breathe. This story isn't just riveting. As always, Ms. Dalton is unparalleled. Her intimate knowledge and understanding of BDSM, people, and their motivations is extraordinary. To give Like the Seasons anything less than five stars is impossible. Congratulations, Ms. Dalton, on yet another captivating story!
A final note. Be an informed reader! This is an ADULT book. It contains explicit language and BDSM sexual scenes. If you know you won't enjoy this genre, this book may not be for you. There are book synopses and reviews available on Goodreads and all booksellers' websites. Use these resources. DON'T LEAVE A NEGATIVE REVIEW WHEN YOU KNOW YOU WON'T ENJOY THE BOOK. It's not fair to the author! She works hard to provide a quality work product. If you know you'll object to the book's subject matter before you buy it, you're doing yourself and the author an extreme disservice.
Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!
