The Gift - Kim Dare I really enjoyed this 24/7 D/s relationship story!! I loved how the Ghost, who was also a great minor character, took Charles through time so you could see his relationship with Nicky build. I also loved watching Charles realize when he wasn't being as sensitive to Nicky as he should have been. However, overall, Charles was a great person who took extremely good care of Nicky and obviously loved him very much. Nicky was a sweetheart who adored Charles. They both tried very hard to make sure they were thinking of the other person. Nothing self-centered was happening here. But they each made some mistakes and some assumptions and the Ghost helps them fix everything. I loved the little menage scene. I thought there was a lot of good reasons to have it, and it cemented the fact that they would never do it again. I even had a little happy tear at the end.
