What a great read by Tymber Dalton. I loved finally getting more of Scrye and June's story. I have wanted more information on their relationship from when they first got together. I will say it was an emotional story, and we got to see some aspects of events that happened to their friends from their perspective. All in all it is a great read, which I will be rereading again soon.
This is the story of June Corden Jarette & her husband, Mark (a/k/a Scrye the Guy). June's always been driven, even though she's Mark's sub. Despite the fact that Mark is June's Dom, he's calm, laid back, unassuming. We've had just a hint of something mysterious & hidden in their past. June & Mark meet in high school, thanks to June's twin sister, July. Both June & July are top students. What's also remarkable is their skill as gymnasts. They wanted to try for the Olympics when they were 13 but were too young. Now, 4 years later, they're can make that dream come true. Mark's very supportive of both girls. As an only child, he's been "adopted" by the Corden family. But July's boyfriend, Matt, isn't happy at July's commitment to gymnastics. He's just as angry about Mark's support of the girls. Mark picks the girls up every day for practice, is there to support them in every way. Matt's not willing to be involved. He's not about to interrupt his life to make any sacrifices. But Matt still hates Mark for being in his girlfriend's life. As the girls go through the next year, they nail it at Nationals. They truly have a shot at the Olympics! But finances are tight for their parents. Neither has the time to accompany 2 teens to the camp so they can be considered for the Olympics, nor do they have the money for the camp. The twins have the talent. How can they go to camp without a chaperone & the money? Mark's in college now, working several jobs, still taking care of the twins. The Cordens trust Mark as if he was their son. So when Mark volunteers to give the girls the money he's been saving for a new car & to chaperone them, everyone agrees. If the twins catch the attention of the coaches at the camp, they're sure to make the Olympics. It seems there's finally a chance their dreams can come true! But Matt's furious about all this. By now, July's had it with Matt's overbearing ways. Her parents, June, Mark, everyone in July's life have disliked Matt since they started dating. July's finally had enough. Shortly before camp begins, July decides to break it off with Matt. June's afraid July will allow Matt to talk his way back into her good graces. This isn't the first time July's talked about breaking up with Matt. July even tells June she'd prefer June spend the night at their parents' house because she wants to handle this on her own. Since their parents are out of town, June reluctantly agrees. It's not right for July to be alone with Matt when he's so volatile. From here, Ms. Dalton takes us on another totally engaging roller coaster ride of mystery, thrills, romance, emotions of every sort. Events in the book zigzag from the twins' life leading up to the camp, to the present & various points in between. It's a ride filled with unexpected revelations. There's joy, pain, love, fear, grief, compassion, rage, forgiveness & so much more. June & Mark's lives change in ways they could never foresee. There are deep, hidden secrets that could destroy & change other people's lives forever. This is a combination mystery/thriller/BDSM romance that will have you completely riveted from beginning to end! How June & Mark meet, become a couple, deal with incredible challenges & build lives together, despite obstacles few could overcome, is a poignant, emotion-driven story filled with love, desolation, joy, life-altering despair & more. I give my highest approval rating to Walk Between the Raindrops. Thanks for reading my review & happy reading!
