The Deeper He Hurts by Linda Aicher
This is a moving love story about love and forgiveness. It's not for everyone, there are some disturbing actions aspects to the storyline, but it is a captivating and romantic story. Asher is a nerdy sadist who is getting bored with life, and is tired of hiding who he is. Sawyer is a masochist who feels guilty about being alive when his whole family is dead. Sawyer takes a job to be close to Asher, and the sparks fly immediately. While Asher tries to resist Sawyer, Sawyer is determined to have Asher give him what he needs. As they slowly open up to each other, they are helping themselves and each other. It's a heartwarming and intriguing story.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Netgalley. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
