average of the book s highs and lows The problem I often have with reviewing in this situation is that I end up in a diatribe about its flaws, when the truth is that I recommend it and I loved reading it.In an effort to avoid that, I ll just say that I had many of the same issues with this volume as I had with the first The dialogue and character development were average, and the editing needed

time.The second half of this book was by far the best part of the duology, with scattered moments of full on brilliance There were some elements of Wes backstory that were so intriguing and well crafted that I wanted MORE PLEASE, Wes If the relationship between Wes and Grif had been less idyllic and as interesting as the one view spoiler between Wes, Thomas, and Henrik hide spoiler , this whole thing would have been a damn masterpiece.I loved the kink between Wes and Grif, though I love how they both came into their relationship with vastly different experiences and figured out their own dynamic as they went.The epilogue could have been a gorgeous standalone short, all on its own And it kind of was, in a way And if I ever doubted where Tonlet himself stands, view spoiler this chapter sealed it The fucking sadist made me cry hide spoiler.I ve now officially read everything JLT has published so far, with results ranging from 5 stars to 2 stars But I m so fascinated by his stuff, and he s an autobuy for me for reasons that would be difficult to pinpoint Can t wait for the next @READ PDF õ Wes' Denial ⛅ Novel , wordspagesGenre s Gay, Erotica, BDSMWes has spent his life

of hating crying, left me somewhere all But the twist with Junior and Wes himself frickin priceless Disclaimer I edited Wes Denial, but I do so at no cost to the author which means I dig my heels in and threaten kidnap when he DOES offer payment in my direction I have my reasons for this, which Mr Tonlet welcomed so beautifully I also edit to NOT solicit work from other authors, as I mostly edit for publishing companies As I gain nothing financially from this work, I reserve the right to review This is my opinion, as unbiased as I can possibly be, especially when it comes to Mr Tonlet Mind you, when I say I don t charge this author, I m damn well sending him my bill for the tissues I got through I loved this book so much Especially the ending and the epilogue Yes, it had some sadness, but also so much love Grif and Wes are one of my favorite couples Both books in this series were very well written, especially the characters. 5 EPIC journey The openings chapter was one that shakes

EPIC journey The openings chapter was one that shakes you and keeps you right in..amazing My God.Wes and Grif The way they treat each other..so delicateso deeply imbued with love..Now and then a little crack of uncertainty which has to be confirmed..so openvulnerable..The storyline is one of high level.everything was right.flawless And then the humor.sometimes subtle sometimes prominent.I loved it allAll the details in their interactions were fascinating, Wes was perfect and GrifGrif was master read servant in his being To see how their relationship grows and deepen is the real satisfaction I love the feeling in this story that they were made for each other That they even met and than so compatible Fulfilling each others deepest desires with no reserve or restraint A perfect couple They grow and in their experience they overcome themselves.The Wes experience with Thomas and Henrik read it yourself All the side characters were part of this journey they had to be there.Again Wes did grow immensely I loved it so much that he wasn t perfect, he had his flaws It made himhuman But he does it so well he learned from his mistakes.And then at some point there is some little revelation from Wes side Again read it yourself it s so worth The back and forward is really well done Bit by bit the gaps are filled The journey was whole, detailed and full with story No dull moment, I just loved it The writing style was excellent, captivating and on a great level.The build up in this story is one you will never forgetAfter I finished this journey I was utterly speechless The end was EPIC COVERGASM YUM Some books shouldn t be allowed to end But because stories invariably must come to a conclusion and I really didn t want to say goodbye to Wes and Grif I did something I almost never do and rationed my reading In fact, it would be safe to say that, in keeping with one of Wes and Grif s preferred kinks, I denied myself the pleasure of reaching the end as quickly as I could have And still I m sorry I didn t manage to make the book last longer Because while Grif s Toy was a fantastic read, this Some books shouldn t be allowed to end But because stories invariably must come to a conclusion and I really didn t want to say goodbye to Wes and Grif I did something I almost never do and rationed my reading In fact, it would be safe to say that, in keeping with one of Wes and Grif s preferred kinks, I denied myself the pleasure of reaching the end as quickly as I could have And still I m sorry I didn t manage to make the book last longer Because while Grif s Toy was a fantastic read, this one is even better.It was quite a journey because, dear God, Joseph Lance Tonlet sure knows how to draw his readers in and shatter their hearts at the same time Chapter one is short but it packs a punch hard enough to leave you breathless and devastated But, after that first chapter the story settles down and, as was the case for Grif in Grif s Toy, we are shown both Wes past and his and Grif s present in alternating chapters In the process we learn how Wes turned into the man we met in the earlier book and how his relationship with Grif grows, develops, and gets ever closer and kinkier.These two men are so perfect for each other Their desires and needs are mirror images of each other They complement each other, fit together like two halves of the same coin and yet, there s a part of himself Wes is afraid to share with Grif You see, Wes Denial is a most appropriate title for this book because the story isn t just about Wes denying Grif his pleasure and orgasms It is also, or maybeso, about Wes denying a part of himself, a part he s afraid of, a part he doesn t trust, a part that has led to horrific consequences in the past, a part of himself he can t show to Grif although or maybe because he loves Grifthan life itself Like Grif s Toy this is a very sexy and kinky story I have to admit I m surprised at how much the kink affected me despite the fact that I d run a mile if anyone would even come close to playing with me the way Wes plays with Grif But, while I loved all those scenes, I adored the depth of their feelings for each other evenThe trust necessary to maintain a relationship like these two men have is staggering and a thing of beauty And yet, at no point is either man portrayed as perfect Wes, in this book, is shown to be all too human and fallible and he s all thebeautiful for it.I don t think there was a single word in this book I didn t love Over the almost twenty four hours since I finished the book, Wes and Grif have never been far from my mind Images, phrases and ideas keep on swirling through my head, making me smile and reigniting some of that excitement I experienced while reading.Pushing boundaries is a huge part of BDSM, and if there is such a thing, the books by this author are my personal boundary pushing reading experience I m enjoying scenes and descriptions I feel I maybe ought to frown upon, and yet I can t JLT has managed to make me appreciate, admire, and even feel curious about something I don t understand and can t begin to wrap my head around and that, in and of itself, is a five star achievement.I m not going to say anything concrete about it, but I do want to finish this review by saying that for me this book ended perfectly In fact, the ending could have been written for me And while I hope that the author will at some point tell usabout Quinn and Gage, I won t complain too hard if he doesn t because Grif and Wes story is perfection, exactly as it is.Long story short Wes Denial is almost certainly the best book I have read this year so far And if it wasn t impossible forreasons than I can count, I d ask Joseph Lance Tonlet to marry me, just for having written that

yet again And before you ask I did NOT reread the epilogue As I said before once in a lifetime isthan enough But the rest is positively riveting The dynamics between Wes and Grif are beautifully explained and explored, and it is amazing to see how their relationship evolves over the years How their kink changes and allows both of them to be fully themselves during their Chocolate sessions.I haven t read a massive amount of BDSM, but this two book series is not only brilliantly written, but also highly educational It really gives insights into D s relationships and how they work That s at least how it feels to me, but I m not an expert And I have changed my mind about the BDSM in this book on this second read I still feel uncomfortable about some scenes, but I maybe get a little bit better where everybody is coming from.Amazing book Original review 4,5 stars This is the hardest review I ve written so far which comes down to the fact that there is a gaping dichotomy between the quality of this book and the emotions it stirred up in me.At one point I wanted to chicken out, but then decided to cowboy up after all If you asked me Was this a good book , I could look you happily in the eye and say, Yes It was blooming amazing, in fact Brilliant writing, in depth characterization, a dramatic plot and two MCs I already loved.It starts where book 1 left off not taking the interwoven timelines into consideration and deals with two things 1 How Wes becomes the man he is at present.2 How Wes and Grif s relationship evolves over the course of years.1 We knew from book 1 that there were things Wes kept secret from Grif, and when I got to them, I could see why he couldn t wouldn t share them view spoiler I understood the reasons for his actions in the first incident much better, but was having a very hard time forgiving him for the second There really was no justification for his violence not that he was looking for any hide spoiler Both events shape him for life, and, to his credit, his remorse is true and lasting Remember , but the intensity of his darkness really bothered me view spoiler I actually hated Wes in the Henrik Thomas scene where he is so intent to make Henrik cry, he provokes and teases him relentlessly With the result of Henrik being brutally punished afterwards Yes, I know the punishment is not Wes s choice, but he seems to be riding on a wave of self motivated cruelty, doing anything to get what he wants And yes, I realize this is BDSM and all the stuff that goes down was agreed on, but it felt blooming wrong to me hide spoiler This, no doubt, comes down to the fact that the BDSM was pushing me seriously out of my comfort zone.I liked the unexpected way Grif reacted to all the revelations Although I m not sure two months wasn t overdoing it 2 Grif and Wes grow not only as a couple but also develop their sexual preferences in this book Joseph Lance Tonlet goes to great lengths at explaining BDSM in general and the ground rules for a D s relationship in particular which I found really intriguing Wes and Grif ALWAYS discuss every aspect of their chocolate sessions and there is a huge amount of trust and love between them I was always well, apart from one time when the author fools us deliberately completely safe in the knowledge that Grif wanted all the things Wes did to him.But I was not keen on the whole aspect of sharing subs, as friendly and cosy it might have looked I can t help it, that s me view spoiler Grif and Gage kissing passionately and feeling each other up just made me uncomfortable Sorry, it s not because I am a prude LOL , for some reason Wes and Grif got so deeply under my skin, I didn t like the idea of them branching out hide spoiler If you asked me Did you enjoy this book from beginning to end I could not answer that with a whole hearted yes I really enjoyed large parts of it, no discussion But I think the BDSM pushed me pretty much to the edge of my comfort zone, at times dangling over the abyss, gasping I have tried to figure out why I have read farintense BDSM stuff and found it ok, but I have drawn a blank hence my difficulty with reviewing I can only tell you how this made me feel.The epilogue certainly comes into this, too I have no idea why it was necessary, and it affected me deeply for purely personal reasons.So how many stars Despite my objections to certain parts of the books which are largely down to my own hang ups rather the the author s fault there can be no doubt that this is an excellent BDSM novel 4,5 stars
