Steel Cameron was a Major in the U.S. Army when both of his lower legs were blown off by an IED in Iraq. The trauma was heightened when his wife couldn’t handle the shock of how her handsome husband looked with two metal sticks to replace his strong, muscular legs. Steel, a Master Dom, hid his damaged legs under tall, black riding boots at the club.
MacAlister “Mac” Smith, a biomedical engineer working on the design of the latest mind-controlled robotic limbs had admired Master Steel at The Black Iris Club for months and thinks he would make a good candidate for Mac’s clinical trial. At the top of his field and totally in control in the lab, Mac didn’t understand what drove him to want to turn himself over to another person completely and call that person Master. Can these two very different individuals overcome their emotional and physical problems and blend into a strong D/s partnership?
Double amputee, Steel Cameron has had grief and been a self-imposed recluse since his accident and failed marriage. Mac Smith worked for an engineering company researching bionic prosthetics and was in need of trial patients. Having his eye on the imposing Dom, Mac figured a working relationship could only foster a personal D/s one~ so Mac approached and took the plunge.
Skye Michaels’ Mac’s Damaged Dom, The Wilton Park Grand Hotel #6 was thoughtfully and carefully written. Ms. Michaels slowly simmered the relationship between Steel and Mac, paying careful attention to Steel’s need for privacy as he healed and dealt with personal insecurities.
I did not feel as if the book was rushed, neither on the relationship front, nor the exploration of post-war injuries. Ms. Michaels research brought forth the importance of seeking help in the face of demons and the solace which can be achieved when you open yourself to others who have your best interests at heart.
Mac was a caring man, who not only desired a D/s relationship with Dominant Steel, but also a man who would put his emotional feelings aside to help Steel achieve a sense of self-worth.
As always, Skye Michaels attention to detail with her characters allowed the book to read with fluidity. Friends from previous series cross over, adding to the depth of tale.
Mac’s Damaged Dom was heart-warming and genuine.
