About the Author
Kim is a bisexual submissive from Wales (UK). First published in 2008, she has since released over 100 BDSM erotic romance titles ranging from short stories to full length novels. Having worked with a host of fantastic e-publishers, she moved into self-publishing in 2013.
While she occasionally enjoys writing other pairings, most of Kim's stories focus on Male/Male relationships. But, no matter what the pairing, from paranormal to contemporary, and from the sweet to the intense, everything she writes will always feature three things - Kink, Love and a Happy Ending

As far as "Duck" goes I have to say it is absolutely one of my favorites and is one I go back and re-read often. It is one that is great as a starter novel of sorts. If you never really read M/M BDSM novels it is a great place to start. It focuses on the core of that genre TRUE SUBMISSION AND DOMINATION without overtly kinky scenes. Above all it is an excellent love story.
While I love "Duck" and think it is absolutely top notch, Kim Dare absolutely dazzles in her recent release "Axel's Pup" and I am anxiously awaiting the release of the second in the series, While it dips further into kink it is also incredibly tasteful and well written. If end up enjoying her as a writer I also hole-heartedly recommend her "Thrown to the Lions" and "Pack Discipline" series both are excellent. Just be for warned they are quite a bit shorter than "Duck"/"Magpie"/"Axel's Pup".
The only reason I gave more than one star - the premise of this book was good, the avian shifters, the "ugly duckling" twist, even the way they met and got together could have been amazing. Could have.
The avian society is harsh and abusive, while there is structure there, there is no real protection for the lower ranks. Ori spent the majority of the book in the lower ranks coping with abuse from the other shifters who believed it was their right to abuse him.
Ori is a beautiful soul, who's natural submissive nature put him in the position of being manipulated and abused for his whole life. Ori's confusion and devastation after his first shift was heartbreaking but the pleasure we see during his submission was breathtaking.
Tends a bit toward purple prose at times. But it hit the spot and I was in the mood for something slightly ridiculous and over the top with some heavy feels with the sex. It has some dark themes so those sensitive to triggers like forced sex and rape should probably steer clear. It wasn't between the main couple, but still.
I recommend to anyone into sexy fantasy kink man on man action with a dash of romance for flavouring. Happy for now rather then a happy ever after ending, in my opinion, but still satisfying.
