Note: The word ‘Grenzen’ translates to border, boundary or brink. A very apt title for a BDSM-themed romance featuring characters from two different countries.
The first line of the blurb is maybe a bit deceptive since the German Dom and his American sub aren’t actually apart until about the last quarter of this book. In fact, the being apart takes up relatively little time and space in ‘Grenzen’, something I greatly appreciated. While I’m slowly learning to appreciate the ‘angst’ aspect in romances I still prefer characters who look at their issues and solve them as soon as they can.
The development between Ryan, the American system designer and Julian, a German mature student, is sweet, tantalising and hot. We get just enough information about Ryan and Julian’s working life and background to get a good feeling for who they are without it taking away from the love story between them.
I liked the way the sex scenes were dealt with in this book. While it is clear from the story these two men have frequent and quite kinky sex, we only get two or three detailed scenes. Those scenes however are descriptive and hot enough for the reader to imagine exactly what happens after the ‘camera turns away’ at other times in the story.
I admired and appreciated the way Chris McHart managed to weave the difference between German and American society into this story. Not only is the German attitude towards homosexuality far more tolerant than the American, we also experience, through Ryan, how much better German labour laws are for employees there. And yet, these were presented as matters of fact rather than an exercise in one ‘upmanship’. Well done, Chris.
This is a relatively short book - more a novella than a novel - but the story never felt rushed or lacking in detail, both about the characters or the setting. In fact, I defy anyone to read this book and not end up wanting to jump on a plane to Nuremberg in order to visit that Christmas market.
In short this was a sweet, romantic and hot holiday read by an author I’ll be keeping an eye on.
Sweet and sexy and hot!
Ryan is an American on a work assignment in Germany. On a stroll through an outdoor market one night, Ryan encounters Julian. A man he is inexplicably drawn to while he is working a sausage cart. Julian also notices Ryan.
The attraction between the two is immediate, but not rushed. The author let the characters and story develop before jumping into sex. Chronologically it wasn’t that long, but the development was nice so it seemed longer than it was.
Julian introduces Ryan to BDSM as he is a Dom. But like in any good story involving BDSM, the nuances are great. It is not all cookie cutter type scenes. Julian’s interpretation of BDSM fits right into what Ryan needs, even though Ryan didn’t know it at first.
This novella was short but gave me everything I look for in a book. Good story, good relationship, hot sex and a good ending. Definitely recommend!

M/M Romance with some BDSM (light)
I was given this book for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads.
Ryan and Julian made a very cute couple. They seemed slightly wary of each other at the beginning, Ryan due to the fact that he had a poor culinary experience by Julian and Julian, probably because he knew he was the cause of the poor culinary experience.
Overall, these characters were well developed and I enjoyed watching them learn about each other. I wish that there had more dialogue around their short interlude, but the chemistry between the two was sizzling and the tenderness so sweet.
The differences between cultures was interesting and fun to read about. And, because there is a difference in what their aspirations are, I liked the contrast between their jobs. I found that while I did want a little more about their relationship, I didn't necessarily need it to understand and appreciate what McHart was trying to do.
I can't wait to read book 2 and hope that it is just as sizzling.
I was given this book by Inked Rainbow Reads in exchange for an honest review.
The majority of this story takes place in Germany and I felt like I was right there experiencing all the sites, sounds, smells, and even tastes. This authors writing is wonderfully unique and descriptive. The sex scences were hot, without being too detailed and repetative. This is a shorter story 84 pages, but it flowed
smoothly and never seemed rushed. This is a new Author to me, and I'll definitely be looking forward to the rest of this series.
