↠´ Read ↠´ Caged Sanctuary by Tempeste O'Riley Â This is a fascinating story about a D s relationship between a man in a wheelchair, who is a sub but believes no Dom can possibly want him, and the demanding Dom who falls for him and sets out to teach him that formalities in a D s relationship are not what it s all about What made this story so interesting for me is not just the romance between Kaden and Deacon, but the focus on the D s aspect without too much of the physical trappings present in some BDSM books This novel is about the psychology of both men as much as about the physical relationship, and I really liked that.
Kaden is a dental surgeon who is in a wheelchair and totally in control of his professional life, yet he flounders where his personal life is concerned His self image has been severely reduced after the gay bashing that paralyzed his legs, and he fervently believes no Dom will ever be interested in him again He s got a few memories about actual rejections, and they totally color his world view When he first meets Deacon, Kaden can t believe the man is interested As time passes and they get to know each other better, Kaden still doesn t understand, and tells himself not to hope He is so afraid of his own shortcomings , as he sees them, he ends up blind to the facts right in front of him I was totally pulled into his head and found the insights about his situation fascinating Tempeste O Riley has done her research well to portray such a realistic picture of what some men in a wheelchair might think and feel.
Deacon is a demanding Dom, but he is also very clear about the point of a D s relationship At least for him, it is the spirit of the idea than the actual reality Deacon is also a man who is able to look beyond the physical, and he truly sees Kaden the man, not Kaden the cripple As he sets out to explore his feelings for Kaden, he encounters barrier after barrier, and I have to say, I gave him credit for having the patience of a saint Or maybe he was just stubborn and determined Either way, he just keeps chipping away at Kaden s self imposed resistance, and I cheered him on all the way.
If you like reading about D s relationships where the psychology between the two men is as important as the physical aspect, if you want to find out what it can be like to be paralyzed and in a wheelchair while dealing with your needs as a sub, and if you re looking for a read that is interesting, a sweet romance, and full of hot sexual tension, then you will probably enjoy this novel.
NOTE This book was provided by Dreamspinner Press for the purpose of a review on Rainbow Book Reviews.
Finding a BDSM story with a main character in a wheelchair was unexpected I really liked this one and was so happy for Kaden when he finally found the yin for his yang, the Master who is worth his submission.
The author did a wonderful job of conveying the heart and soul of these two guys, and when the heat turns up, it gets damn hot The BDSM scenes are intense, the vanilla sex is tender and passionate The emotion between Kaden and Deacon is electric, the intensity and rawness of it is definitely cold shower worthy.
Overall, Caged Sanctuary is about learning to put the demons of your past behind, it s about accepting yourself and not giving up your hopes It s about making peace with your boundaries, and embracing life And that was so emotional to watch it s about making dreams come true, finding the perfect guy and Master and building a future with him.
5 Stars Unfortunately, this one just didn t click for me The dialogue was too formal for my tastes and I found Kade to be kind of whiney and Deacon too perfect Also, this was too much insta trust for my liking when it comes to BDSM.
3,5 Senza dubbio tematiche coraggiose omosessualit BDSM aggressione disabilit.
Poteva essere davvero un romanzo da grandi emozioni, e in certi punti ci prova.
Peccato per lo stile narrativo scelto un po freddo, tante descrizioni didascaliche dei rapporti, visti pi da fuori che dentro Molta scenografia, poca introspezione Mi sarebbe piaciuto scendere sotto la superficie, capire la dinamica che spingeva Kade a voler essere un sottomesso, comprendere di pi le sue emozioni Invece c una certa insistenza sulla sua insicurezza e sul suo sentirsi inadeguato per quasi tutto il libro , ma quando finalmente la situazione si sblocca, avrei voluto sondare anche sfumature psicologiche diverse, pi positiveIl dominatore, poi, boh senza dubbio una persona ammirevole, per davvero non si capisce cosa veda in Kade Io non sono riuscita a entrare nella sua testa, ed un peccato perch avrei voluto davvero capire i suoi sentimenti Sembra quasi che siccome un Dom, in automatico debba essere dotato di una serie infinita di qualit superlative generosit , protezione, ecc Alla fine un rapporto cos meraviglioso che si finisce pi nella fiaba che nella realt , e questo secondo me l aspetto che pi mi ha fatto riflettere la disabilit deve essere sfumata e edulcorata per poter renderla argomento da romanzo e tema accettabile per una storia d a Eine sch ne Geschichte und ein guter Einstieg ins Thema BDSM Perversit t entsteht zum gr ten Teil im Auge des Betrachters Jan W llert Ich mag es B cher zu lesen, die von einer anderen Lebensart als die der meinen erz hlen Ich mag es auch, das viele Menschen anders ticken als ich Ich muss nicht alles verstehen oder selbst ausprobieren , aber ich war und bin der Meinung, dass wenn zwei erwachsene Menschen das gleiche wollen und dies einvernehmlich praktizieren , k nnen und sollen Au enstehende dies nicht verurteilen.
Das ist das, was die Welt bunt, spannend und interessant macht Wenn man dann noch durch s Schl sselloch aka ins Buch schauen darf, um ber andere Gewohnheiten in den Schlafzimmern dieser Welt zu lesen, dann wird nicht nur der Voyeur in uns Menschen geweckt, sondern man lernt oft auch noch etwas dazu, was vielleicht ber den eigenen Horizont hinaus geht.
Genau so ein Buch ist Zuflucht im K fig Es ist Buch, dass einem einen f r Laien nachvollziehbaren Blick hinter die Kulissen eines BDSM P rchens gibt Aber es ist auch ein Buch, das mich etwas zwiegespalten zur ck l sst Nein, nicht das Thema BDSM gab mir dieses Gef hl, sondern das ganze Drumherum Ich versuche es einfach mal auf ein paar wenige Punkte herunter zu brechen.
Positiv f r mich war der liebevolle Umgang von Deacon und Kaden im t glichen Leben miteinander das Gef hl, das Deacon sich auch nach einer Session f rsorglich um Kaden gek mmert hat und um sein Wohl besorgt war das Selbstverst ndnis, mit dem Deacon mit Kadens Behinderung umgegangen ist und f r jedes, aufgrund der Behinderung, auftretende Problem eine unkomplizierte L sung fandweniger gut fand ich das Kaden im Berufsleben sehr erfolgreich seinen Mann steht, eine tolle berufliche Karriere trotz und mit seiner Behinderung vorweisen kann, wenn es allerdings in den absolut privaten Bereich ging, mutierte er zur Mimose Schauspielern bzw Maske tragen gut und sch n, aber daf r war mir der Unterschied zu krass zudem blieben die Protagonisten f r mich leider nicht wirklich greifbar und relativ weit weg ob dies an dem extrem h flichen Umgangston lag, den ich auch in einer elit reren Schicht als dem Durchschnitt etwas sehr gestelzt , sprich nicht zeitgem fand Ich kann nicht definitiv sagen an was es lag und es noch weniger an etwas festmachen.
Heraus zu heben ist f r mich allerdings, dass es meiner Meinung nach ein sehr gutes erstes Buch f r den Bereich BDSM w re ebenso wie Das graue Halsband Es zeigt, dass es eben nicht nur rein technisch gute Sessions geben muss, sondern dass sehr wohl auch das Thema Master Boy aka D s mit Gef hl, Zuwendung und Z rtlichkeit vereinbar ist Kaden war und ist von Herzen Boy und genie t es, seinem Master die Verantwortung zu berlassen Dies macht er im Rahmen seiner begrenzten M glichkeit sehr gut, denn Deacon ist mehr als zufrieden mit ihm.
Leider blieb mir der Grund, warum Kaden so wenig Selbstbewusstsein hat, zu blass Das eine Mal, bei dem er sich nicht wahrgenommen gef hlt hat, nicht mit dem selben Erfolg wie vor seiner Behinderung bei diesem einmaligen Clubbesuch angenommen worden zu sein, war mir als Begr ndung ebenfalls zu wenig sorry.
F r mich ist das Buch trotz meiner ganzen aber eine Leseempfehlung, denn wie immer sind diese, meine Eindr cke, ja subjektiv und das Buch an sich ist richtig gut.

Sadly, bad editing proofreading in the last 40% affects my rating It s a bad, bad thing when Jake suddenly becomes Jade, and Kade becomes Kate It really distracted me from the story, as I started to think the two couples in the book, m m and m m, were originally planned to be f m and f m How is it possible that books with this kind of mistakes get published These mistakes should be corrected as soon as possible I ll change my rating when that has been done, but until then, this is how this affects my rating Five Stars Three Stars There It s your own fault for disappointing me I paid a high price for the book.
The rest of my review is under the spoiler tag view spoiler So, I had already read the sample of this book when I heard the main couple will have a joint BDSM sex scene with another couple, their friends Usually when I come across anything but sexual exclusiveness in a romance novel, I become greatly disappointed to the extent that I DNF and return the book unless it s exclusive polyamory This time though I had already become really invested in these characters, and the writing was very good Also, there was the promise of good, realistic BDSM, which I was thirsty for Also, I was told the scene I feared would have purpose So I decided to give the book a chance.
I m happy I did so The story was really touching, it was a story about how a man finds sexual self confidence The BDSM content was very good and realistic, as far as I can tell All was completely consensual There was only one little thing I d have done differently in one scene the Dom should have asked his question and waited for the answer before putting the gag on the sub, instead of gagging him first and then being satisfied with a nod as an answer But that was the only thing I found in the BDSM that was even remotely questionable I do not have knowledge about the techniques though.
If I should describe this book in one word only, my word would be beautiful Kade s story was beautiful, the BDSM was beautiful Even the scene I feared was beautiful That doesn t mean I was completely comfortable with it No, I wasn t, but it did have meaning, it did have a purpose in Kade s journey For those who want to know what that scene contained it was full on sex between the four men, not just BDSM activities, what happened was kissing and oral sex.
This was a psychological tale of a man s journey to finding himself sexually after a life changing tragedy I loved the story, and would give the book five stars, if not for the sad tragedy in the editing of the book I mentioned at the beginning of my review hide spoiler A review by The Blogger Girls.
Oh boy was I excited for this one I love reading about damaged characters overcoming and finding the right person That definitely happens here.
Kaden is really sweet He pretty much has his life together he is a successful dental surgeon with everything set up to accommodate his disability He seems to have, as best as can be expected, come to grips with his situation He is in a wheelchair, legs paralyzed after almost dying at the hands of his homophobic attackers But, it s only his legs that don t work Before the accident, he was a sub after, nobody wanted anything to do with him But he was determined that he could still be a good sub, even given his limitations Luckily, he eventually meets Deacon, a dom who sees Kade s potential right from the get go.
Deacon isn t like the other doms He isn t so much into the club scene, instead looking for someone to have a relationship beyond the dom sub aspect, although not 24 7 He is mature and even a bit formal, but these guys seem perfect for each other, almost too perfect Deacon bends over backwards to make accommodations for Kade, anticipating his needs, finding new ways for him to submit, etc I loved this aspect of the story and watching it all play out.
These guys move fast, but, under the circumstances, I thought it was understandable Kade was longing for a dom yet was afraid to even step foot back inside the club where so many turned away from him Then, Deacon comes along, a guy who is not only interested but seems too good to be true in all other ways That said, I didn t enjoy how quickly they jumped into the roles of boy and sir, as it just felt a bit over the top so soon in their relationship.
I had a lot of trouble trying to picture how Kade did things Aside from not being able to see how he performed surgery while sitting in a chair, he often moved around in ways I found disbelieving for someone who had no use of their legs His biggest issue was his self worth and his ability to submit to someone as well, or in as satisfying a way, as other fully functional subs I would have liked to have seen about his dealing with his disability, how he mentally overcame what happened, as it felt as though we missed a very important part of his recovery.
One other aspect that bothered me a tiny bit was how much time was spent with Kade worrying about Deacon getting tired of accommodating him That Deacon would dump him before long, etc While certainly a plausible worry, it just came up too many times not to become tiresome.
However, this was a really sweet story that had many refreshing aspects to it, especially concerning the BDSM As I said earlier, it was great to see the various ways Deacon found to make their sessions work He did everything possible to make it physically easier for Kade to submit They even play with Kade s friend and fellow sub, Jake, and his dom, Sam, which I absolutely loved in this instance It was all a part of healing for Kade, from renewing his friendship, to allowing other people a dom specifically to see him submit now that he is different These scenes were very well done.
I m a bit picky at this point when it comes to my BDSM stories, and while I didn t have any issues with the BDSM aspects of this one, the other things didn t wow me But, if you re new to the BDSM readership, I think you will most likely love this story.
As a surgeon Kaden is calm, confident and in control Refusing to let a wheelchair prevent him from achieving his professional goals was easy facing those same challenges in his personal life and accepting his value as a submissive not so much While his soul cries out for a Sir he can trust and serve, the rejection Kaden experienced upon returning to the BDSM scene after his injuries have forced him to give up on his dream.
Deacon has been without a boy for quite some time, preferring to wait for a relationship than spend his time chasing one night stands He is immediately drawn to Kaden s sweet smile and the warmth that radiates from within his eyes, but quickly discovers that convincing the sexy submissive of his attraction is easier said that done.
Told primarily from Kaden s point of view, Caged Sanctuary is a sensual romance with vividly written scenes that bring the BDSM elements of this story to life More importantly, it paints a stunning image of rebirth as Deacon and Kaden s relationship begins to unfurl, like a rose as it opens its petals to the sun Deceptively fragile in appearance, their connection turns out to be unexpectedly strong, but even the most beautiful roses still have thorns As demons from their pasts emerge, they must both face their fears in order to take a chance at finding love The detailed storytelling captured my attention, the characters quickly won my heart, and the depth of emotion brought tears of both sorrow and joy to my eyes Caged Sanctuary is a story I would highly recommend to any reader who love well written and realistic BDSM themes interwoven with real life romance I couldn t put it down My OFFICIAL REVIEW written for Carly s Book Reviews
