Orizzonti | Libro 3

Seguito di La degustazione
Un libro della serie Orizzonti.

Sei mesi dopo essersi incontrati alla Degustazione di Chicago, Lil Lampert e Grier Dilorio vivono insieme. Il loro legame fisico è forte più che mai, ma la coppia capisce presto che servono più di due magiche parole e del sesso straordinario per far funzionare una relazione.

Come un uccellino che ha appena lasciato il nido, Grier sta imparando come condurre la sua nuova vita. I suoi problemi sarebbero dovuti finire quando Jillian ha firmato i documenti che lo riconoscono come padre biologico di Luca e quando ha avuto l’opportunità di inseguire la carriera di designer d’interni. Invece, è ostacolato da vecchi timori e cattive abitudini che sono difficili da abbandonare.

Adeguarsi a un piccolo appartamento in uno stato con quattro stagioni – con un uomo più giovane di lui dal temperamento testardo – è una sfida per Lil. Fare il “Papi” di Luca significa trovare una sorta di equilibrio delicato tra quello che lui pensa sia giusto e il dover fare affidamento agli otto anni di esperienza di Grier.

La vita è abbastanza stressante, ma ora Lil e Grier affrontano anche una complicanza inaspettata creata da un’autorità influente, potente e radicale. Improvvisamente, la sicurezza di Luca e la felicità della famiglia che si sta formando dipendono dalla profonda comprensione della natura umana di Lil e dalla voglia di imparare di Grier.

Nicolas Sayers, ayant besoin d'argent pour l'université, prend un emploi comme assistant de l'infâme photographe Damian Wolfe. Il s'agit juste prendre des photos, pas vrai ? Faux. Alors que Nick n'a jamais remis en cause le genre d'homme qu'il est ou ce qu'il veut vraiment dans la vie, travailler pour Damian lors d'une séance photo sur le thème du BDSM lui ouvre les yeux sur toutes sortes de possibilités sexuelles, et beaucoup d'entre elles incluent le beau M. Wolfe.

Damian a de sérieux doutes quant à s'impliquer avec un homme plus jeune qui ne connaît rien sur le mode de vie BDSM, mais l'approche audacieuse et pleine d'humour de Nick face à de nouvelles expériences est trop séduisante pour y résister.

Faire l'expérience de la perte de contrôle, de la soumission et la douleur excite Nick plus qu'il n'aurait jamais cru possible. Avec Damian, il apprend à connaître ses propres désirs profondément enfouis et découvre que l'abandon de tout contrôle ne le rend pas faible que quelqu'un d'autre prenne le contrôle de son plaisir sexuel l'augmente, tout simplement. Et l'inverse est vrai pour Damian : le contrôle l'excite. Ils se mettent alors à explorer ces limites sensuelles ensemble, ne s'attendant pas à trouver l'amour en chemin.

Caine Neiheisel è intrappolato in un impiego senza prospettive e alla fine di una relazione che di prospettive non ne ha più, quando all’improvviso gli si presenta l’occasione di una vita: sua madre eredita un allevamento di pecore nel Nuovo Galles del Sud, Australia. Per Caine è l’occasione di ricominciare, là in mezzo ai pascoli, dove la sua balbuzie non sarà più un ostacolo e dove la sua voglia di lavorare potrà certamente compensare la mancanza di esperienza.

Sfortunatamente, però, il sovrintendente di Lang Downs, Macklin Armstrong, che dovrebbe essere il suo più grande alleato, alterna momenti di freddezza ad altri di chiaro disprezzo. Gli altri membri della squadra, invece, sono più interessati al suo accento americano che impressionati dalla sua situazione… fino a che non scoprono che Caine è gay, e allora il divertimento si trasforma in disprezzo. Sarà necessaria tutta la sua determinazione – e un crudele atto di sabotaggio da parte di un vicino ostile – per unire gli uomini di Lang Downs e dare a Caine e Macklin la possibilità di scoprire l’amore.
