For a BDSM story, I found Little Rainbows to be rather sweet.  This had a bit of a different twist.  As often happens in this kind of story, the hero and heroine are damaged.  They have issues.  They have baggage.  However you want to word it, they hurt.  But here it isn’t because of the usual abuse or commitment issues.  Little Rainbows tells us a story about surviving the everyday issues of life – and death.

Heather’s husband, and Dom, died and left her devastated.  They had been together for about eighteen years.  That is a very long time, and it can take a long time to recover from that kind of lose.  Heather is trying, but it doesn’t seem to matter.  Everywhere she looks, something seems to remind her.  Even the job that they worked and built together.  But, she promised him she would continue so she will try and move on.

Jason is about to celebrate the one year anniversary of the opening of his BDSM club.  It should be a momentous occasion for him.  But he has lost interest.  He doesn’t find the excitement in topping a sub anymore.  In fact, he really doesn’t feel much of anything anymore.  He has lost his edge and feels he has lost who he is.  Being the conscientious guy he is, he backs away from the scene in fear that he may actually hurt someone.

Two damaged people trying to survive in the everyday world of the living.  What made a fascinating twist to this story was the simple fact that this couple had known, and had feelings, for each other twenty years before.  Somehow, on a cosmic level maybe, they knew that the time wasn’t right for them back then.  But now?  Oh yah!  They were just what the other needed to survive.

The coming together of Jason and Heather was not only HOT, but sweet.  It gives one hope that there is life after the death of a spouse and a midlife crisis.  They each may have gotten there without the other – eventually.  But to rekindle a “first love” if you will – how very special is that?

The location and scenery of this story is spectacular too.  It left me wanting to visit this amazing place and see all the “little rainbows” for myself.

I am not usually a fan of the second chance story, but this one touched me.  This couple hadn’t sat around and pined for unrequited love.  They each had full lives.  Their coming together at a time when each was just what the other needed, well, it does give raise to the wonder of fate or destiny.  It was really quite beautiful.

This story will be enjoyed by the fans of BDSM – there are some wonderfully hot scenes here.  Those that like second chance stories, and don’t mind a little kink, will also enjoy this.  The more mature adult looking for a mature story will love this.  This is a story that will satisfy any lover of kinky romance.  I know I enjoyed it!
