Controlled Asher didn't expect to fall for free-spirited Daniel, but they'll find what they desperately need in one another.
Police captain Asher Penaz's staunch professionalism bleeds into his home life, down to his neatly pressed attire and Spartan apartment. He enjoys being in charge and in control, so his sudden and powerful attraction to the lighthearted, free-spirited Daniel Tover throws him for a loop. In his entire life, Daniel has never gotten what he needs, so he moves to the next place, the next job, the next attempt to find something worth staying for, always landing at the top of his game, but never feeling like he belongs.
The chemistry between Asher and Daniel sizzles, but with all that fire comes the risk of getting burned. As both men struggle to learn themselves while getting to know each other, the lines of desire and control blur. If Daniel and Asher can walk through the flames together, they might find what they desperately need.
When I began to read Something in the Way He Needs by Cadeno C. I was torn and perplexed in my thinking. How was the author going to seemingly meld two very different personalities into a satisfying HEA? Leave it to Cardeno C. to accomplish this task.
Anal retentive police captain Asher and free-spirit David couldn’t have been more different. Brought together through happenstance, Asher was intrigued and smitten by the man who couldn’t find his way out of a paper bag~ with directions.
At first I wanted to dislike Asher; not that there was anything completely wrong with the man. But, the man who loved to dominate had an insecure personality which he projected his short giving onto others, especially Daniel. Asher was his own worst enemy and nearly lost Daniel in the process.
I adored Daniel. The man appeared younger than he truly was, yet he had wisdom and maturity, and a care-free attitude which made him likeable and tender-hearted.
Daniel had patience and stamina to keep up with the roller coaster Asher.
Something in the Way He Needs is not a BDSM book, although Asher is dominant and professes to enjoy the lifestyle. The book is a journey of exploration and opening your mind and heart to other’s who you usually wouldn’t do so, and finding the other piece of your heart.
As with all Cardeno C.’s audible books, her chosen narrator was spot on. Ezekiel Robison’s tenor delivered a dynamic narration with feeling and emotion. Kudos Mr. Robinson for holding my interest.
