Endings and Beginnings by K.C. Wells and Parker Williams was a PHENOMENAL ending to the Collars and Cuffs series. I really don’t want the series to end but since it did I could not have asked for a better ending. All of the older characters were in this one along with one more couple coming together within the story. There were multiple POVs of these two new characters and also the POVs of the older ones, which was just perfect! I loved getting into their heads again and seeing what they’ve been up to.
Darren was in the series earlier, an owner of a salon. He was introduced to us in Trusting Thomas and I’m so glad to see that he finally got his own story! He gets to meet JJ, the newest bartender at Collars and Cuffs who has a secret of his own. I really loved how Darren went about learning to become a Dom and how he got to do it with JJ who is also new to the scene.
JJ was a surprise character. I never would have guessed that Curtis Rogers would have had a kid out there and said kid would show up in the series! Blown away by that revelation. Though I found JJ a bit naive in his thinking that maybe Rogers had been set up by our Collars and Cuffs gang, he quickly realized his error in judgment. It was heart breaking to watch that realization overcome him and understand what a horrid man his father really was. It was also beautiful to watch him open up to Darren and continue to explore who he is as a person as well as a sub.
The whole series was an amazing adventure! I HAD to give this one a 5 star as it was the ending of this beautiful series. *sobs* The interwoven POVs of old and new characters was a brilliant addition to this book and the way everyone got to catch up was bittersweet. I’m really going to miss the Collar and Cuffs gang but I am so pleased with how it all ended! Highly recommend not only this book but the whole series! Really! Who starts at the end anyway?
Copy provided in exchange for a fair and honest review.
In all his relationships, Darren Fielding never found the level of intimacy he witnessed between Thomas Williams and his sub, Peter, the day of Peter’s “rebirth.” Not only that, he never realized such intimacy was possible. For two years, Thomas’s business card has been burning a hole in his wallet. When Darren’s lover moves on, maybe it’s finally time to see where that card takes him.
Collars & Cuffs’ new barman, JJ Taylor, is really conflicted right now. He went to the club with a very specific purpose, already convinced of what he’d find there. Except it’s not what he expected at all. He certainly didn’t anticipate finding himself drawn to the new wannabe Dom. Nor could he have guessed the direction that attraction would lead him.
Old love, new love, vows, pain, rage, moving in, moving on…. The members of Collars & Cuffs face an event that touches some of them deeply, but it will only reinforce what they already know: together they are stronger, and some bonds cannot be broken.
