Acceptance of the Egoist
“You can never win because you don’t want to win. Just admit it. You want me.”
Depravity. Corruption. Immorality.
Sinking deeper into captivity, detective Kuon Leiris longs for the simple human contact from his captor – the Black Duke.
Isolation and emotional numbness corrode his moral values, bringing his pride to its knees until he is grateful for any sliver of kindness

Acceptance of the Egoist contains explicit sexual scenes between men, strong language, dubious permission, scenes of violence, and is intended for adult readers only.

This novella exceeded my expectations. I read in one sitting as I honestly didn’t want to put it down.
Your getting nothing about the storyline from me. This is one of those books that you just gotta read yourself.
This author certainly knows how to write the dark that we dark lo ...more
The character development and world building continued to deepen with Acceptance of the Egoist. I was unprepared for just how much it would as Love of the Egoist already had strength in both areas. It kept me on the edge o ...more
Just a little tidbit to carry you over and keep you connected to Yugo and Kuon. Stockholm syndrome is a real thing and is truly being played out in Neros books. Kuon fights hard but is losing the game
, in the end will it still be a game? Will Kuon lose himself or find someone unexpected in his place?
We also see a little more of Yugos business which is interesting. Maybe some welcome intrigue here. Hopefully a little more will evolve in Love of The Eqoist pa ...more
Everything I felt was missing from book 1 materialized here.
The missing link within their bond... This better explained Kuan's reaction at the end of book 1.
Kuan actually submitting although I would have liked there to have been more instances of this in the actual first book...
I will say that there was too much about Yugo's work here. Instances that should have all been in book 1, as I felt there was too little of his work there. (It was almost an after taught, wh ...more
Intrigue, a battle of wills and a delightfully dark and sexy scene that will make you question yourself for wanting the villain to win this round.
Flowing and elegantly written, Nero is a fairly new to me author that I will be forever stalking for more!
He fights himself, the Black Duke and his own desires, but will it be enough to hold onto the man he was and accept the man he is becoming?
Classic, unforgettable Nero Seal.
This short novella was jam packed full of goodies regarding Yugo’s operation - searching for the treacherous leak in his organization, and Kuon’s emotional journey under captivity.
The power exchange between Yugo and Kuon is so heart wrenching... You want each to concede: Yugo to be a bit more gentle and forgiving and for Kuon to allow himself to explore his attraction to Yugo! But that just wouldn’t make sense in this twisted captivity story. They’re both so ...more
The writing is insanely detailed and sucks you in with all the descriptors, it’s almost like you can taste Yugo’s cigarette smoke in the air and feel the steam off the shower spray at times.
So add on to the awesome writing you have all this amazing character growth (nothing more boring than a static character with no personality) but you’ve got Kuon movi ...more
I also knew that Kuon would accept him eventually even though this started out and just kind of is in general a bad romance. The kind that has reven ...more
And with this novel, we return to the world of the Black Duke and his criminal organization that is on fire with the possibility of a traitor that is challenging Yugo in his power play.
As for Kuon, he continues in captivity and despite gradually accepting his attraction for Yugo, he debates against these same feelings.
Once again, Nero Seal takes us on an emotional journey with these complex characters. Anguish, anger, attraction, love, flow through the pa ...more
My Kindle took me right to this book after reading book 1, so I never read the blurb and didn't realize ...more
Nero Seal is an amazing writer and I have enjoyed his work and I see great things happening in ...more
Kuon is struggling with his feelings towards Yugo and with being with a man.
It's a dark and twisted read, and you will understand why Kuon is struggling. Best of all, it's written in both POV, so we get to understand Yugo.
I found this a very good addition as it gives the whole story more depth.
As always I am stunned by Nero's amazing writing, the way he draws pictures with words, makes the feelings of his characters visible. Oh, need I mention it's HAWT? ;)
I cannot wait for part two of Egoist in early 2019!
Just the level of details in this and Love of the Egoist. It draws you in, making you easily picture every detail and action.
I couldn't get enough of either books and read them in one go.
It becomes something weirdly beautiful between the two. And leaves you wanting more.
Characters always talk in his head, forcing him ...more
