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!

5 Teary Stars

I can’t even this book, it will break your heart and put it back together just in a different way.
I am no stranger to Tymber’s work and this is probably my second favorite book I have ever read/ listened by her. This was the first Audio book by her and I loved it.
You will need tissue this story between Kaden, Seth, and Leah is powerful and heartbreaking.

What would you do if your best friend in the entire world told you he was dying and he need you to fill his shoes so to speak for his wife because her needs are unique?
Not only do you fall in love with Kaden, Leah but you fall in love with Kaden, Seth and Seth, Leah but you also fall in love with the 3 of them as a couple. It’s a beautiful story of love and loss and finding love again.
Usually I say quotes I love but I am going to say quotes I loved to hated because they were just too powerful.

“Kaden’s dying.”



Feeling the struggle Seth goes through in this book breaks my heart. I know Leah and Kaden are going through a tough time too. But Seth for me it was more so that he had to come to terms with the end game, and change his life and way of thinking all at the same time.

Ok quotes I loved yes I have some!

“I’m still not doing you .” - Seth

“Still not doing you buddy.” – Kaden

“Basic Carpentry in the afternoon, and Sadomasochism 101 in the evening.” - Seth

And this one even if it makes me teary
“It’s going to rip half my soul out. If you weren't here for me, I would fucking give up and die the minute he quit breathing.” -Leah

Also I loved the narration. It was perfect makes you feel apart of the book. I wouldn't chance a thing.
