T is for Tom

Cassie’s husband, Tom, is certainly a central character in the books. All of the Cassie books are told from her point of view. Tom writes a letter at the end of the first book, but other than that we really know very little of what he is thinking. All we know for sure is that he love Cassie madly and want’s to keep her safe, healthy and happy.

My feelings for Tom are complex. I do love him, yet I most definitely would not want to be married to him. He’s way too strict for my taste and spanks too hard. But the idea of being the focus of such love and devotion – I mean what woman wouldn’t be attracted to that?

I’ve found that many of my readers often have strong feelings about Tom. Many who love Cassie, just don’t really like Tom. Others have told me he is their ultimate dream man. I guess I go with dream man – perfect in loyalty, perfect in consistency, perfect in love … perfect for Cassie. But I’ll leave him in dreamland. My Nick is a better reality.

Do you have an opinion of Tom?

  2. I love Tom to bits but I wouldn't want to be married to him. Far too strict.

    Love,

    1. Roz,
      Yes way too strict, but then again what does Cassie ever want to do that she doesn't just go ahead and do?

  4. He's growing on me. I used to dislike him. Period. After starting over with Cassie recently I'm seeing him in a much better light.

  5. I like Tom well enough, sometimes I think he's a little to too but I know he loves Cassie. I agree with you though, I'm glad he's not mine. Of course, if he was he might have found himself without certain body parts by now.

    1. No doubt the man is not for us. But it sure is fun writing him.

  6. PK,
    I think Tom is perfect for Cassie, just as I believe Nick could be a little stricter with you.
    Love and warm hugs,
    Paul.
