Healing the Wounds (Neighborly Affection)


Healing the Wounds, M.Q.Barber. Neighbourly Affection 3.
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
I loved Crossing The Lines, hadn’t read the first book ( one day…) but found no problem picking up the story. At the end of that Alice and Jay go through a very traumatic event at the Club Henry takes them to. Now Alice is living with Henry and Jay he wants to get them past that trauma, he’s a good Dom and can see that though both claim to be over it they’re not, they feel ashamed, guilty and are hiding. Alice is also struggling with just how she fits into the lifestyle of a duo that have been established for several years. I get the feeling Alice is very lacking in self confidence. She loves Henry and Jay but can’t quite believe they both love and want her, and seems to be waiting for her time to be up.
Henry, he’s the very best sort of Dom. I’ve read many romances containing elements of BDSM, FSoG seems to have brought them out in their multitudes, and the quality varies greatly. All I know is from what I’ve read in fiction, so I can’t comment on the veracity of a work, but can say how I see it, and how it makes me feel. I love those which look at the psychology of why people have their needs, and this series does exactly that. Henry looks at them as individuals, looks at their strengths and weaknesses, looks for what they need and sets plans to supply it. He’s the perfect Dom IMO, and his sort of old fashioned gentlemanly ways of speech and mannerisms make him very special. He’s 39, but at time he seems older from the way he says and does things, then he’s onto some sexual game and you realise he might Sound older he’s very at his peak for stamina! Jay, he’s like a lovely puppy, very anxious to please and its easy to abuse someone like that. Sadly that happened to him before Henry rescued him, and though he’s made great strides in the years since, that last event really affected him badly. Alice, I love her, ( well I love them all really) and she fits in well, Henry is very Dom, Jay very Sub and Alice – well she’s somewhere in between. Happy when she’s given an order ( though Henry always makes it sound like a request) and she loves the praise but she questions things, her mind works constantly and she has a tendency to over think things. Luckily Henry knows that, so when he sees her and Jay struggling to get past that chaos of their visit to the Club he works out plans for their healing. That’s pretty much the whole book, how Henry helps them, how they react and it includes them meeting with a few other people. Its a great read once again, full of things to think about and for those like me who love to know the whys its really interesting. I like seeing how Henry works, how he thinks and makes his plans, like seeing how Alice and Jay respond. Of course the hot, sensual and steamy sex scenes make in a fun read too!! Its priced at £2.47 for 268 pages and is one I’d happily re read.
Stars: four and a half. Great read.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
