Darrek thinks he is just a straight, hard-working but lonely guy. When he decides to try a session at a private BDSM club, Darrek is unprepared for a life-changing encounter with beautiful, powerful and very male Dominant, Gabriel. Once they cross the line, nothing is off limits and nothing is enough as they crave ever more: more trust, more pleasure, more pain, and more devotion. As Darrek and Gabriel negotiate their relationships with each other and their coworkers, carefully-buried secrets and abusive pasts come to light.

Content Warnings

I don’t mind insta-love. I don’t mind tragic pasts. I don’t mind extreme kink (prefer it, actually). However, I DO mind:

  1. When a character goes from not even considering he might be gay to practically waving a flag at a Pride parade, and when that same character goes from barely knowing what BDSM is to actively enjoying CBT and watersports within the first couple of sessions. No. Just…no.
    -1 star
  2. When a book could have been 3/4 as long and gotten everything in without feeling rushed. I found myself skipping pages because they were just rehashing drama. I got it the first 24 times, geez.
    -1 star
  3. When a book makes it seem as though kinksters all have some traumatic past, and that they’re using BDSM to beat the sin/guilt/anger/etc out of themselves. I’m pretty sure most of us aren’t Catholic, and BDSM is not a replacement for a licensed professional therapist. Ever. Fifty Shades of Crap had this exact same issue.
    -1 star

2 stars because:

  1. The sex scenes were hot, as long as I wore my disbelief suspenders.
    +1 star
  2. I finished the book.
    +1 star

I will not be reading the rest of the series.
