Jay Bontrager, a strong, sexy California blond, has mostly adjusted well to living with paraplegia since his spinal cord injury. But Jay feels disgusted by devotees—“freaks” who are attracted to people with disabilities—until he meets the enigmatic and beautiful devotee Erin Silver.

Unfortunately, after Erin overhears Jay expressing his contempt for people like her, the d

I really like this one. Some of the heroine's actions made me cringe in the middle (view spoiler) ...more

I loved this book! I loved how it portrayed Erin's struggle to except her inner desires. The character of jay was a worthy foe and a steaming hot love interest. Of course, you knew what was eventually going to be the outcome, but there were a lot of interesting twists on the way and it was a lot of fun getting there. Once again, love this book! Five stars! ...more

The only thing that I disliked about this book was the cover. The ENTIRE book, I kept thinking, "I don't *want* Jay to be Bradley Cooper!" and "Stop making me see Bradley Cooper in this!!!" I hated that. Jay was NOT Bradley Cooper, to me.

Having said, the book was well-written. I can't relate to the characters - I have difficulty with 'hot', arrogant guys who think they deserve chance after chance after chance, and girls who keep going back for more pain, do drugs, are weak, etc. I can't connect
« To Each Her Own » est l’un des rares livres que j’ai lus dans lequel l’un des personnages principaux est handicapé. Jay Bontrager souffre d’une paraplégie de niveau T9 mais il donne une image de lui tellement… forte qu’on ne peut qu’être attiré par sa personnalité et en oublier sa chaise roulante. Quoique je pense l’avoir pas mal détesté au début du livre. Il refusait d’écouter Erin et de comprendre que ce n’était pas une tare d’être attiré par un homme en chaise roulante. Il était tellement b ...more

I am not usually a fan of romance novels but this one really hooked me. The guy, Jay, wasn't your typical "perfect" hero… Not only was he disabled but he also sometimes lied and said the wrong thing. His imperfections were what drew me in and kept the story interesting. I could not stop reading and finished the book in just a couple of days. I highly recommend this book to even people who are jaded about romance novels. ...more

For some reason this woman's fetish freaked me the fuck out. Not that she was attracted to a man in a wheelchair (BTDT) but the fetish aspect. I can totally see why the guy thought it was gross. ...more

Review originally posted on my blog,

The subject of devoteeism–people who have a sexual attraction to disability–isn’t tackled often in the media. Ruth Madison’s novel (W)hole, (second edition reviewed here) is in some ways a pioneer in the genre, and a couple films have also touched on the subject, but usually not so much from the perspective of the devotees themselves. To Each Her Own, for better or worse, makes devoteeism a central conflict, as it conti

Great romance novel. Read in one day, captivated by the endearing characters. A serious subject treated with emotion but not lacking of humorous comments in a very pleasant writing style. The author has a way of her own to describe the psychological struggles that makes the romance very realistic and moving. Devoteeism is analyzed from every angle and if the word sounds rather derogatory and negative, appearances can be deceiving.

3.5 stars. Really slow at first for me, but picked up toward the middle and I had a hard time putting it down. Liked the realistic portrayal of disability, especially the parts that poked fun at the "wounded hero" genre. ...more

Loved it.

A very different love story. I truly enjoyed reading about Erin and Jay. Loved how it explains what a dev is. Up till now I never knew about devs. So....To Each her Own is the perfect title.

Erotically and Literarily Satisfying

I ĵust finished reading To Each Her Own, possibly the first book by this author I have yet read.The whole story arc was captivating and the quality of the writing unusually high, it was the final scene, of Erin (the able-bodied devotee MC) and Jay (the paraplegic MC) making love, that simply blew me away.

The scene of Erin and Jay was a perfect model of the depiction of "inter-ability" love-making I have ever read. I have never made love to a paraplegic of eith

I'm not going to lie: As a disabled person, the idea of a Devotee/Disabled Person romance is cringeworthy. I'm going to read this, and I'm going to review it, but I already struggling to give it a fair shot. Or to find an appropriate analogy to describe the fetish-ist nature of this relationship, as I know it BEFORE READING A SINGLE PAGE OF THE BOOK. Again: These are my initial thoughts about the TYPE of relationship the book is claiming to feature, that I know, in my own personal life to be VER ...more

Interesting book concept and I enjoyed the first part of the book, however the author lost me when she didn't fully develop parts of the story. There wasn't much explanation as to how Jay did a 180 on his feelings toward Erin. All of a sudden he wanted her? And then at the end of the book after all the angst, it ends abruptly with no mention of how their lives were going to go. I guess it was a happy for now kind of ending, but an epilogue would've added the closure I felt was lacking in this bo ...more

I understand that Erin had no idea why she felt turned on by a man’s disability or where this attraction came from, but it didn’t get clear to me in what ways she saw beauty and eroticism in Jay’s paralyzed legs.

And, most important, I didn’t like the reasons used in To Each Her Own to settle the guilt that Erin, the heroine, feels due to her impulse of sexual attraction to Jay’s physical disability itself, as if he was an object. Considering Erin's perception and feelings that this is a dev

I can’t believe how many times I’ve passed up on this book when I came across it on Amazon…huge mistake on my part. I am shelving this under favorites. This is one of the most beautiful and enlightening disability romance novels I have ever read. The author does an incredible job and doesn’t gloss over anything. No fluff here..pure substance.
I can’t wait for this author’s next book!

DNF. Different storyline that I just couldn't wrap my head around about a woman who is a "Devotee." A Devotee is someone who has a special attraction (I guess sexual) to those in a wheelchair. This story is about a guy in a wheelchair turned off by a woman he thinks is a Devotee and that somehow makes her not okay to have a relationship with. Very different and I decided to move on. ...more
The woman was very immature, their was no chemistry between the characters, the whole fetish thing was awkward and I was honestly just really bored.
