My job is killing me.
Sebastian and I moved in together after I said goodbye to James, but I hardly spend any time with him because I’m working late almost every night and bringing home work on weekends.
He knows I love him but I know I’m neglecting him.
Besides that, I can’t seem to get James Lucas out of my head. I dream about him almost every night. Why can’t I let him go and focus on the wonderful thing I have with Sebastian?
Now Sebastian is gone and I have no idea where he is. Did he just give up on me? Or is he with the sexy dog trainer we hired to train the dog I bought Sebastian, that Sebastian didn’t really want?
Or did he run to the one person who knows us best and just might be able to help us remember why we chose each other?
The man I keep seeing in my dreams…
The Cross and The Trinity struck me as a weightier read than Beyond The Edge. It looks at the fragility of life and there is even a bit of a philosophical bent. Don’t get me wrong, there is kinky sex galore-Ms. Lister can write some kinky sex like nobody’s business-and the fetish party sequence still makes my pupils dilate just thinking about it, but there is also depth and emotionality that moved me. I would categorize it much the same as its predecessor as a slice of life tale with infinitely relatable characters.
