Then he meets Brody Ashman, and finds himself obeying the man without question. But after what happened with Professor Fitz, Simon is done being told what to do. Yet he can't seem to resist Brody's voice.

Man I didn't know what to think about this book at first. Of course, I loved it. Simon was finally getting his own story but it saddened me a bit because at first it seemed his relationship with Brody was going to be a whole Hunter thing again. And then all the stuff with Noah. It was just a lot for poor Simon to deal with again and I was so scared for him losing it all over again. But it's a damn good story and I'm so happy Simon got his story. ...more
So while I’m happy that Simon found his person after everything he went through, it just wasn’t what I expected or really wanted for him I guess.

Brody came across as kinda Hunter-ish at first, especially when in his POV he wondered if he could order Simon to do sexual things with him. Really, what about that is genuine? He wanted to be in charge after some really shitty experiences with his ex Doug, which is understandable... but it felt like he wanted to turn that control on to someone else in

Wow, such beautifully written, and well rounded characters, truly bring this book to life. Simon and his insecurities about what happened in his past. Brody and his past hurt, that still affects him was just so tangible. The openness and honesty about being trans, and the dysphoria was so well written that I could clearly picture it. It was also wonderful to catch up with Kacey, Austin, Hunter and Noah again. I truly loved this book.

Simon is adorable. He’s so pure and lost. It’s so hard for him to understand common nuances because he’s such a genius so when it’s time for him to put a different part of his mind to work he’s lost. It’s good to see him grow and find love.

We have taken a look at Kacey, Austin and Hunter. Now with Simon, by G.R. Lyons, Simon gets his closure. Simon is a little different from the other books in this series in that the only true taboo, if you will, is that between a student and his professor. Past events, however, of a darker, illicit nature make an off-page appearance. But, Simon centers on love, need and a bond that redeems two broken individuals.

At this point we know Simon quite well, as a pure and extremely intelligent young ma

Truth be told, I found Brody insufferable, abusive, and judgmental. Every interaction was about him, where he didn't care about Simon, unless they were talking about coding. Simon didn't owe Brody anything, especially anything that happened in his past, especially to someone who just told him to lie on a bed and get ridden like a breathing sex toy, no foreplay whatsoever. Creepy and clinical.

Everything was too fast, even for a novella. Simon was a strong character, with a good backstory to that

When Simon meets Brody, two words change his world. "Hold still." Simon flees, hoping to never have to see Brody again and face these feelings that Brody has awakened. Brody never thought he'd find that one boy who would respond to him the way he's always dreamed. Both Simon and Brody each have secrets they need to share it there is any chance of them making it together. I totally loved Simon and I'm so glad G.R. Lyons gave us Simon's story. If you've been following this series, then you know ho ...more

I had to wait a bit to find out how Simon was dealing with all that he’d been through in the previous 3 books and it was worth the wait. Brody is the perfect partner for him. I love this series and this was another incredibly written , super sexy story. Simon is confused, he doesn’t know what he’s looking for and with two words, he gets what he needs from Brody. I have recommended and will continue to recommend this book/series! Wonderful!

Simon’s Turn

We revisit Simon months down the road after the events of Hunter. He finds another scarred but kindred spirit in Brody. The path is not easy but oh so worth the journey.

G.R. Lyons stumbled into writing as a form of trauma recovery when traditional therapy wasn't working.

Then the story ideas just kept on coming.

Pulling from a vivid imagination as well as real-life experience as a trans man, a sexual assault survivor, and a person living with mental illness, Lyons has written multiple, interconnected series set within his fictional world of the Shifting Isles.
