Trusted Bond - Mary Calmes This is the second book of the series and I loved it even more than the first. I will say that there is a lot of abuse, so it is not for the faint of heart.The biggest complaint that I had about this book is it is in first person (and I hate first person), and supposedly this is a male/male book, right? I just kept forgetting that our protagonist was a gay male. I don't know if it was because of the first person format or not, but I only remembered that he was male when they had sex.Otherwise, very well written book, if not a bit melodramatic.
