The Romance Review

Not all doms are made equal. And not all men who call themselves doms should be one. This story hit me in the gut from the beginning. Meri is not just down on her luck. She's been kicked whilst she's down. I reckon if she wasn't as loved by her brother, she would be a suicide potential. It's amazing to see someone who is supposed to "love you" just walk away because of a cancer. I realize she never married her boyfriend/dom and that maybe should have been an indicator something was off. This

Another stellar addition to the Suncoast Society series! Meri has just moved back to Florida after a really tough year. She didn't plan to be living with her brother at forty but his love and encouragement are just what she needs to start over.
Elvin knows that he's lonely but he's not sure what to do about it. Fortunately he has observant friends who take him under their wing and introduce him to members of the Suncoast Society so he can start fishing in the right pond! When Elvin and Meri meet

Suncoast Society, Book 73. When devastation and loss destroy all, can love, laughter, friends, and family renew faith and trust?

It was hard when Meri Dutton lost her job eight months ago. But she could always find another job, right? Then came the cancer diagnosis. A double mastectomy ate through every penny she had...savings, retirement account, and severance package. Recovering, trying to find a job took every ounce of her strength. When her Dom, Peter, took one look at her post-surgery, told

Both Meri and Elvin have lots of pain both physical and emotional. But as they came together they can each find relief. I love how much support they get from friends. And I totally can understand Elvin's getting adopted by his ex's family. I had the same thing happen to me as well. ...more

Elvin and Meri are absolutely perfect together – they have both been through a lot (things that most of us can’t even begin to imagine) when they find each other and begin the long road to helping each other and finding the love that both thought they’d never find.

Another winner

My only complaint is the lack of pronouns in the dialogue (especially for an English teacher). Just doesn’t seem possible that so many characters talk the same even from different parts of the country.

Another success for The Frightful Five. This couple both have issues stemming from the treatment of their exes that they must work through. My favorite part was.when Meri changed her FB picture and headed to her brother's sword that he uses in his Viking role playing. that was definitely a silent threat to use them if Elvin's ex kissed her off again. ...more

I loved this story . POC stories written by non-POC are often cringe worthy but in this case. Ms. Dalton went out of her way to make sure the characters didn't come across as stereotypes. Other than the snatch her weave out scene i felt like I was just enjoying two people falling in love.
