The Healing Power of *

Now I know where all my money went!

So here we have hurt-comfort books or the healing power of sperm books as I often say. This is without a doubt my favourite trope or theme or whatever you want to call it. Give me a guy who’s been through hell, make him suffer, give him scars and PTSD and what have you, and then give him someone to love.

This is a mix of some pretty dark and some not so dark books, but what they all have in common is that the MC(s) has to overwin his doubts and fears to be happy.
