Publisher's Summary

Love hurts...if you're lucky.
Kaden's dying, but before he goes he has one problem to solve - he must ask his oldest and dearest friend, Seth, to take over as Dom and Master to his beloved wife, Leah.
Seth has always seen himself as the perpetual screwup and Kaden as the strong and steady one, so his friend's request rocks his world. He also knows there's no way he can refuse Kaden this.
Now Seth finds himself immersed in a role he's far from comfortable with - inflicting physical pain to provide emotional comfort to the woman he's secretly loved for years.
Can he deal with his crushing grief over the impending loss of his oldest friend and still learn the skills he must master in time to become The Reluctant Dom?

This book is so much more than the title or cover makes it seem! I have read & listened to it about 5 times and I "UGLY CRY" every time. The characters are real, the subject is real and the way they handle what life has dealt is amazing! I love that this is erotica with all the fun sexy scenes but also it has such an incredible story too. This book was written so well, I honestly can not think of one thing I would have like to have been any different than it was. You can not improve on perfection! I was a little worried when I got the audiobook, I thought the wrong narrator would break my heart but that was not ever a thought once I started it, Pepper Laramie gave this story just a little extra edge that I didn't know was possible! 10 stars as far as I'm concerned!

Reluctant to Amazing

What made the experience of listening to The Reluctant Dom the most enjoyable?

I can't read as fast as I would like and love books so audio seemed like the best way to go. I knew this book was a box of tissues so I wanted to get the full affect by hearing the words instead of reading them.

What other book might you compare The Reluctant Dom to and why?

I don't think I come across a book that would be a good comparison but I would put the Rescue Me series by Kallypso Masters with similarities but I haven't come across a story that put a character into a position that he didn't want and deal with losing a dear friend.

Which character – as performed by Pepper Laramie – was your favorite?

I loved all the characters. I think she did a wonderful job. I notice with some narrators have trouble doing male and female voices. Pepper did a fabulous job. If I had to choose, I would go with Kaden.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I don't have the time to listen to any book at one sitting due to life but I listened to the book going to and from work and I didn't want to get out of the car when I arrived at my destination.

Any additional comments?

Run out and get your copy. Hearing the words written by Tymber is 10 times better and more emotional. I didn't get to have my ugly cry cause I was driving but I definitely would try to listen to this again. Such a beautiful story.
