Slade Igerman and Reeve Taylor have finally connected and are in a steady relationship. Something happens after Reeve goes away on a mission and Slade does not want to talk. Either the two of them will be able to work things out or their relationship may be over. But what if the secret is more than either of them can handle?
Devotion is, for me, a study in contrasts. One contrast being the men's choice in weapons - Slade with the sword and Reeve with his sniper rifle. Another contrast is their differences in personalities with Reeve being the more outgoing of the two and Slade being a bit "chilly".
The contrast that I think really defines not only the men, but why these opposites work so well together, is the contrast between their outward personalities and who they are inside. Even though Reeve is outgoing and can come across as a partier, he wants a loving home and partner. Slade, on the other hand, may come across as cold and hard, but it's partly because he wants the same thing, just doesn't trust in the fact that he may actually have it.
All of these contrasts are entwined together and blend well to pull the whole story together.
Great read and look forward to more!
A long-term friendship between swordsman Slade Igerman and sniper Reeve Taylor turns intimate. Slade, a high-paid leader in the Special Forces, has difficulty dealing with people in general and has never had any luck maintaining a serious relationship. He's an outwardly cold and withdrawn man. Reeve is the complete opposite, a social butterfly, a very outspoken and sarcastic individual, someone who seeks to enjoy everything life has to offer.
After a year together, they have created what appears to be a lasting bond and are seemingly happy. And for the first time in his life, Slade has successfully kept the interest of one man. He's in love and can't wait to see what the future brings. But just when he thinks things couldn't get any better, Reeve is called away by duty.
When the sniper returns, he finds his lover to be a very changed man and their relationship on the verge of collapse. Reeve can sense it, something has happened in his absence and Slade is keeping a secret. Whether it's love or a bruised ego, he refuses to give up until he gets an answer. But when he does get the answer, it brings a host of personal demons to the surface. Forced to face an uncertain future, Reeve wonders if love will be enough to conquer the demons and save their relationship?
