There are not many m/m books out there that don't put religion in the most negative way. Many authors seem to fall into something that they preach against all the time: intolerance of people with different life views from theirs. In this book, Mr. Deveraux manages to avoid that. In reality, many gays are religious and _still_ go to church every week, whether they are out or not. He deals with the issue of the Bible on homosexuality lightly, so it does not feel like we're reading a political book ...more

Dillon’s Prayer, aside maybe for the title, was not what I was expecting. The author bio said “my books have an edge that most erotic books in the “gay” genre generally don’t have. For one they are actually written by a man” and he said “I genuinely enjoy other authors as well but felt that there was something missing from the work”. So yes, since I’m used to read erotic books written by men, I was probably expecting for this books to have a “dark” edge, maybe to be very explicit, less bed of ...more

3.5 stars

I really enjoyed the story, it kept me turning pages through the end and made me shed a tear or ten. That said, I had to overcome serious issues in order to reach that level of enjoyment. Given the obvious errors (Alphonse or Alfonse?)and the style issues (Growing/bulging muscles were mentioned so many times that by the end of the book Dillon seemed freakish rather than handsome - This boy is BDB material), this story could use some good editing. Good thing I can overlook almost anythin

3.5 STARS---it's very difficult to pin this book down, in a lot of ways for me. I really enjoyed it, but cannot readily describe it. It talks about BDSM, but is not one per se. It describes a D/s relationship gone wrong, but the 'Dom' in the book was cowed by Dillon's older brother, so he's not really a Dom in the traditional sense (IMHO). Dillon is very childlike at the beginning of the novel, a victim of physical, mental, emotional, and verbal abuse by his 'Dom', but becomes almost 'Hulk-like' ...more

An absolutely beautiful read! Dillon's journey captured me from the very start (Cullen went WAY too easy on Alfonse for my taste, but then I wanted to string the prick up by his balls from Moment One). The gentle, heartbreaking story that followed was so real, so captivating. Father Maloney was a complete hoot!

The only reason I didn't give this five stars is because the editing in numerous places was far below what a story of this caliber deserved. But that is by no means Mr. Deveraux's fault. I

I don't know what kind of people this author has been hanging out with but I have never known anyones eyes to turn red. This was odd, it almost worked but it Alphonse was NOT a Dom whatever he called himself and it seemed as if, especially with the priests story that if you let you sex become more than missionary its going to drawbridge into complete abuse. There was a part which made me well up but I didn't really feel that connected to any of the characters. Also the edition I read, the ...more
While I am not a fan of religion, this book was beautifully written and very touching. Jon is a welcome addition in Dillons life and together they grow much stronger both emotionally, psychologically, and physically. Cullen is a loving and caring brother who will protect Dillon no matter what.

Great book. Made me cry, smile, rejoice. What is better than that. I love my books with real humanity and spirit with real life feelings and real scenarios.
