Read on for my review!
*Warning: This book contains some violent content and victimization that could be triggering. Please read it, and my review, with caution.*
Solomon, still unrecovered from the pain and tragedy in his own life, has moved back home to West Virginia to take on the role of caretaker for an elderly woman--a role assigned him by the church.
Desecrating Solomon is a unique blend of religion, spirituality, and eroticism, and the storyline is definitely intriguing. I did feel, however, that it was oddly rushed and not quite developed enough in many places. I got a feel for the connection between Solomon and Chaos, and even a bit of a shallow glimpse into the character of each as an individual, but it felt very surface at times.
I was also incredibly bothered by Solomon's treatment of Chaos toward the end of the book. For most of the story, he treasures and cares for her. He says he loves her. But then he treats her as if she is a child who cannot be trusted to think for themselves or allowed to see the truth. And it's not a matter of Dom/Sub in this case, which I could understand and accept more readily. Instead, it was just an odd sort of imbalance in the relationship between the two, in which Solomon manipulates her (as every other person in her life has) in order to achieve his end goal--nevermind that the end goal is her safety.
