Caged Sanctuary by Tempeste O'Riley
(m/m, BDSM)4/5 stars
Caged Sanctuary is the first book I've read by Tempeste O'Riley, but it definitely won't be the last. I discovered this book when it was recommended to me on Amazon, and after reading the blurb I went ahead and purchased it. I must admit that one of the reasons I was attracted to the book was the fact that one of the heroes was a wheelchair user. I've never read a BDSM book where one of the characters used a wheelchair, and being a wheelchair user myself this really intrigued me.
I really liked both of the main characters. Kade was so sweet and endearing, and Deacon was such a caring Dom who went out of his way to ensure that Kade was able to feel safe and comfortable with him. I found myself really routing for this couple, and hoping that Deacon would be successful in showing Kade that he could still submit to and serve a Dom despite being paralysed. I found the adaptions that Deacon used when he scened with Kade really interesting, and it was obvious that the author had carefully researched BDSM and disabilities.
The supporting cast were interesting and well-rounded characters too, who really added something to the story too. I loved Kade's friend Jake, and was happy that they reconnected after Kade had distanced himself following his awful homophobic attack.
Caged Sanctuary is now one of my favourite m/m books. The story was well written, with lovable lead characters and sex scenes that were hot, hot, hot! I would definitely recommend this book to other lovers of BDSM and and m/m books. I just wish that there was a Deacon somewhere out there for me!
