How interesting! Two men/people who have a lot of reason to not trust easily but they find each other with a little matchmaking by a rival to the "frightful five" for the matchmaking title at Venture and the Suncoast Society! Sweet story actually. Really enjoyed it.

Suncoast Society, Book 85. Can anything rise from the ashes of devastation or is all lost? Rom’s a control freak of the highest order, for good reason. His trust was crushed, and now he believes in no one. But at what cost? Does he even have a life? When it hits him that his idea of a good weekend is cleaning his apartment, washing his car, and shopping for cheaper insurance, there’s his answer. Meanwhile, Colton has problems of his own. Life’s never been the same since his parents disowned him as a child. Yes, Grammy was there for him, giving him a home and accepting every part of him. She nourished his spirit, imparting her passion for art. But now Grammy’s gone, taking Colton’s heart with her. He tries to carry on because that’s what Grammy would have wanted. But his soul’s shattered, and he feels nothing. Then one day, a trio of total strangers come into Colton’s shop. The ersatz leader of this small group brings something totally unexpected. But is Colton ready to accept anything from a stranger? When the same person approaches Rom, it seems fate may have walked into both men’s lives. Is anything ever that easy? As a Dom, Rom definitely takes an interest in the gorgeous subby Kent introduces him to. But, despite an initial attraction, can it be anything more than just one night? Words hold no value for Rom. Actions are the only way to reach him. And does Colton have anything to offer anyone? Since Grammy died, he’s been so hollow and broken. As both Colton and Rom take baby steps toward something neither recognizes, disaster strikes. Could fate be so brutal? Only one thing is certain. To get through this with take a megaton of hope, faith, trust, and more. But is either man capable of any of this? Or will the Universe once again cruelly shatter the dreams of each into splinters? Both Rom and Colton took me completely by surprise. You couldn’t find two people who are this severely damaged by completely different circumstances. Their pasts have utterly broken both. How could they find anything in common when neither trusts anyone? It’s heartbreaking to read what these men have endured. I cried for both and the heartbreak they’ve endured. That Rom is a huge control freak is no surprise and makes him a natural Dom. You’d think that would give him the ultimate confidence, making relationships easy. But his past ensures that’s not true. And Colton? His trauma is so very different than Rom’s, but he’s been ripped apart at the seams. He too trusts no one. He belongs nowhere. He only knows what he wants, and that’s not about to come walking into his life. But despite the pain and betrayal of their pasts, Rom and Colton also have a strength neither knows exists. This is the true beauty of this book. There’s a dichotomy of vulnerability versus strength and resilience that shouldn’t work. Yet it works so very well. Tymber Dalton has again shown the depths of her writing talent. I loved both Colton and Rom, their backstory, their present, the possibilities of what could be, and the surprise ending I never saw coming. I was captivated from the first page and flew through it, finishing it in one night. Congratulations, Ms. Dalton! This is another five star winner! A final note. This is an ADULT book. It contains explicit language and BDSM sexual scenes. If you don't enjoy this genre, this may not be the book for you. There are book synopses and reviews available on Goodreads and all booksellers' websites. Please use these resources. I urge you to leave a review, but with a proviso. Please don’t leave a negative review when you know you won’t enjoy the book. It's not fair to the author. She works hard to provide a quality work product. If you know you'll object to a book's subject matter before you buy it, you're doing yourself and the author an extreme disservice. Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!

Looks like the "Frightful Five" might have competition in the best kinky matchmaker contest. It is clear that these two men would probably never met up with out the intervention of others who bring these two different worlds together. From the beginning they feel a connection and protect what is starting between them. Both have reasons to be cautious with their hearts but over time learn to open themselves up. They are a great fit and they seem to have a very solid start.

This story is about 2 males who are broken but looking for love. Rom has big trust issues and is hoping to find a submissive that he could love and live with forever. Colton is an artist, art teacher, and physical trainer who owns his own art shop, which he inherited from his late, beloved grandmother. She took him in when his parents tossed him out for being gay. Kent, Tim, and Paul enter Colton's shop and purchase some exclusive art pieces from him. Kent also happens to be a customer of the bank Rom works at and will only deal with him. After his conversations with both men, he decides to play matchmaker by inviting them to one of his parties. We take the journey with the men from their meeting to their falling in love. I loved this book because each man had his own vulnerabilities and was willing to work through them with the other. I hope to see more of Rom and Colton, as well as Kent, Tim, and Paul. Revisiting past characters is always a plus.

Another wonderful addition to Tymber Dalton's Suncoast Society. Rom just wants someone he can trust in his life. Having lived through a horrible event in his childhood, he was raised by his brother. Colton has lived through his parents disowning him because he came out as gay. Luckily, his Grandma took him in and gave him love but he still has scars. I loved seeing Kent, Paul and Tim as Kent gets Rom and Colton together. This is a fairly lighthearted story of two men working on a relationship together and wanting it to be forever, but will one turkey sandwich end things for them? Loved, loved, loved this book and I hope we get to see more of Rom and Colton in future books!
