I requested this book because the premise intrigued me, a haemophiliac who is also a masochist, how was that going to work? Well, I'm happy to say that it did.
Robin is not looking for a relationship after a major betrayal form his ex-boyfriend but he is intrigued by Geoff from the minute he sees him. He is furious when he finds out that Geoff has been hiding his problems from him and explains forcefully how much danger he would have been in had he hurt Geoff unawares. Geoff was a very naive in that respect and it nearly ends them before they begin. They both have major issues with trust and although the problems with Geoff's haemophilia was a major issue, it wasn't the only issue they had to work through and it takes some time for them to get to their hea.
I'm no expert on any of the issues raised here but the way the author had them work through the problems with Geoff's haemophilia and their lifestyle felt plausible to me. I get the impression that these characters are connected to another story so I'm off to check that out now.
