Protecting His Own by Cherise Sinclair
This book follows Nolan and Beth and their continued attempts to have children. The story is told in first person and switches between main characters perspectives as needed. This is organized by chapter which makes is easy to follow. Despite some extremely intense and emotional scenes, I couldn't put the book down. I ended up reading the whole thing in 2 days.
The overall story is less about the BDSM world and more about the characters and their lives. They still play and live the lifestyle, but with realistic alterations to accommodate the changes in their lives. Several of the characters in the series have children or are pregnant, and Beth has wanted children since If Only (book 8). This story focuses more on her and Nolan making some hard decisions about where they want their lives to go.
One of the great things about Sinclair is that the characters are intertwined. Each book focuses on a particular couple, but the other characters are still around and have lives. Occasionally it gets a little unrealistic - like all of the characters volunteering at the same place - but the overall series is very well done. I strongly recommend this book as it was one of the best in the series.
