Impulse, #2

I have read the second sequel of Inertia: Impulse and have fallen in love with Amelia C. Gormley. The relationship of Derrick and Gavin was remarkably enchanting. It drew me to the very end and made me want more. I cannot wait until I read the third installation in the series.

In Inertia we first meet Derrick a handyman/ carpenter and his client Gavin who strike up a relationship at a time in Gavin’s life when he feels broken down and abused. In Acceleration the couple decide to take their relationship further. They must face new obstacles including Derrick’s coming out of the closet and his inability to give up anything old and accept new things into his life.

This book is a worthwhile read that may have you begging the writer for more. I don’t know if a reviewer is supposed to say this but my favorite character is Gavin and I hope I get more of him being aggressive and in control in the third installment.

I love Gavin being aggressive probably almost as much as Derrick and I can’t wait to read more. Gavin is probably the greatest character because he has the most reasons to be distressed and yet he doesn't let it get to him. He still takes what he wants and enjoys doing so.

I recommend this to anyone who likes BDSM books based more on the relationship than the act itself.

Book Blurb for Acceleration


Gavin Hayes is everything Derrick could ask for in a lover. Gorgeous. Passionate. Great in bed. Derrick finds it very easy to just let himself go, to let Gavin guide him and teach him all the things he missed during a decade of celibacy. In the course of a single weekend, Derrick’s routine is transformed, his mornings and evenings filled with sex. Sweet, seductive, wild, or raunchy, Gavin offers Derrick all the pleasure he’s denied himself for so long.

But learning how to be a lover in bed is one thing. Learning to be one out of bed is another. For Derrick, being alone has become habit. Sharing his confidences doesn’t come nearly as readily as sharing his bed. And after so many losses, the last thing Derrick wants is to become dependant upon another person who might not always be there.

And Gavin always being there is far from certain. With an ex-lover lurking in the background, and the question of Gavin’s future health still outstanding, neither Gavin nor Derrick feel capable of asking for anything more than right now. But Gavin won’t be kept on the fringes of Derrick’s life. Can Derrick let someone in before the opportunity passes him by?

This is the second book in the Impulse series and needs to be read in order. Book 1 is Inertia.
