Larry didn’t think he was made for happy-ever-afters, until one Dom changed his mind.

Larry likes to keep his BDSM and sex separate. He has his reasons, and he doesn’t have to explain them to anyone else. Though he has a friend in another sub, Hank, no one truly knows Larry—maybe not even Larry himself.

Life takes twists and turns one can never predict. When one of those twists turns out to be a Dom Larry is attracted to, Larry’s secretive life and hidden desires threaten to come bubbling to the surface.

But for that to happen, he’ll have to learn to truly trust someone.

Bo Olsteen always wears his leather hood when he’s at the club. He likes to keep a firm line drawn between the Dom and the man outside of BDSM.

He hasn’t gotten laid or had a scene with a sub in far too long to admit. No one has caught his attention until he sees one blond man with boundaries all over the place and a chip on his shoulder at the BDSM club in Ravon.

Two men, neither of them expecting the connection that bursts to life between them, are about to learn the power in true submission.

Publisher's Note: This book was previously released elsewhere. It has been reedited for release with Pride Publishing.



Book Cover

  • Exposed abs and/or headless torsos - how original^


  • Too brief to put down


  • That Larry isn't nearly as vapid as he portrays himself to be; he has strength of character that isn't readily apparent
  • I'm glad they brought up that 'sadist' doesn't mean 'sociopath' or that the sadist has no feelings; yet another stereotype that gets old*

Character Depth

  • Ankle deep

Mood Upon Completion

  • Annoyed


  • Very few/no typos

Sex Scenes

  • Plasma hot
  • Decently sweet


  • Ugh, insta-love, ugh - seems like they've known each other three months and are all 'let's get married!'
  • Once again, there isn't much backstory outside of the club; yes, it's a short story - but there's no mention of family or even friends outside of the club
  • The time jump was jarring, and it felt like I was reading an excerpt from a much larger story

Emotional Depth

  • Weakly emotional

Content Warnings

  • BDSM (namely, D/s, S&M, main, two, past/present/future)
  • Kink (namely, spanking, caning, main, two, past/present)
  • Character death (minor, one, past)
  • Violence (physical, minor, one, past)

^The cover style is consistent with the first book

*Plus, from what I recall, Bo isn’t as into being a dom as he is into being a sadist; they don’t have to be one and the same, and a sex scene with Larry topping sort of shows this.

Sorry, no post found.
