Hot sex is a great detail in a book like this, let's face it, it's a big part of why we pick books like this to read...but in this case and most others that are trying to tell a story and not be PWP...it's not enough to carry the book, especially when it's mostly all tell and no show. So for what the book should have and could have been, it was waaaaaay too short and too rushed to be enjoyable.
We really don't get to know Jaime or Alex that well. There is a lot of telling in this book about the men getting to know each other but it's all crammed into what seems to be about 19 days, 6 of which Jaime is out of town and the first 4 when Jaime doesn't even know Alex yet..... He literally spends 3 days figuring out he might be a masochist, then from kink and gay sex total newbie to hard core masochist in 5 days, (including whipping, etc) has a 6 day break, a 1 day reunion, and a 3 day break up.... . Jaime and Alex go from complete and utter strangers to in love and committed in 17 days and talking about moving in together. I think people can and do fall in love in short periods, maybe even "love at first sight", but with this type of intense sexual awakening, I'm not sure that anyone was making real healthy decisions and Alex as a Psychiatrist should have been much more concerned about the pace of the relationship than he was. This book should have taken the time to let us see much, much, more about their connection and relationship.
I should also add that near the end, Alex is really the worst kind of Dom. He totally expects something from Jaime in public without any kind of discussion and when he doesn't get it, he drops him immediately, gives Jaime no time to explain, leaves him in unsafe conditions for several nights and only after he feels maybe there is an acceptable excuse for Jaime's behavior does he think to "forgive" him. Frankly, at that point, Jaime really should have been rethinking that relationship and it makes me feel even more sure that the obsession Jaime has with Alex is not healthy.
And the epilogue...I don't get the dates for the Rio de Janeiro announcement being like 3 years until they get home.... Do they live in Rio all that time? As an owner of Blashemy, did Alex sell out and move? WTH? That was a really messed up way to end the story.
And finally, this ebook ends at 84%...the rest is all info about prior books. Be warned
I have not read any other books in this series. I own the books, but for whatever reason I haven't been in the right mood for them. But this cover spoke to me, it forced me to one-click as soon as I saw it, and then as soon as it appeared on my kindle, I was opening it up and reading it. And I wasn't disappointed. Alex and Jamie had off the charts hot chemistry. and every scene they were in was scorching. But more than that, Kaye made sure there was a deeper connection between the two. They both grew as people within this story. I only wished it could have been longer, since a few moments (including the end) was a little rushed to me. I would have liked this to have taken place over a longer period of time, and more information given to how this relationship impacted their lives outside of the club. Otherwise, I was able to enjoy this as a standalone without feeling lost, and I would definitely recommend if you are looking for some seriously hot m/m romance which has a lot of heart behind it.
THE STORY: Attorney Jamie Fielding is at a crossroads in his life. A series of failed and unfulfilling relationships send him on a personal journey to challenge his own notions of his sexuality and sexual needs. He makes his way to the sex club Blasphemy where he meets Alex McGarrey who is one of the dominant masters of the club who also is a sadist. Alex feels a pull towards Jamie when they meet, but Alex doesn't intend to take on someone who is just investigating being an masochist and bisexual. But there is something about Jamie and Alex just can't resist.
OPINION: This was a book that I enjoyed more and more as it progressed. I worried that I would not be able to see how Jamie who is totally new to both masochism and bisexuality would work with the more experienced and jaded Alex. But something just clicked between these two. Their encounters are definitely on the more extreme side but there is a undercurrent of consent and respect that works better here than perhaps in any of the other books in this series.
I felt an understanding and connection with Jamie whose personal journey is central to the story. Alex's character remains more elusive. When there is a dramatic problem towards the end of the book, I didn't feel enough understanding of Alex's character to feel connected to his reaction. Intellectually I understood, but there were deeper issues that I didn't feel were fully explored.
While this book is beautifully crafted as a novella, I think that a longer book would have explored Alex's backstory more and give better insight to his character. But that is a quibble in what is a very enjoyable read.
For fans of Kaye's Hard Ink series there is even a cameo by a character that jump starts Jamie's personal journey.
WORTH MENTIONING: This is a m/m romance.
CONNECTED BOOKS: ON HIS KNEES is the fourth book in the Blasphemy series. These books are connected by the club and small appearances by others, but each book is independent and can be read as a standalone.
STAR RATING: I give this book 4 stars.

This must be the third or fourth time I have re-read this series and I have no idea why I have not left feedback before. I will rectify that now. I only award five stars when the storyline and grammar as well as editing are spot on and although there were two errors I still think the book deserves five stars because it really does tear you up and spit you out the other side.
The storyline is well written, thought out and executed in style. The characterisation is exceptional, I needed to hug and support Jamie so badly at some points, and in others I needed to give Alex a shake or two, with maybe a good flogging as incentive!
There is so much love and honesty in this book, so much psychological angst and emotional struggle that you can't help living this storyline. Yes it's set in a very short timeframe, yes it deals with issues that would take months or even years to work through, but, come on readers, it's a romance set in the world of BDSM so at some point we have to suspend belief and just roll with a very engaging story.
There are numerous sex scenes, set within the darker aspects of BDSM including the exploration of S/M and there are some potential triggers relating to consensual non-consent. If you happen to be a prude then don't buy the book.I
If, however, you enjoy a storyline that delivers fully developed characters as well as a great story then buy the book. I recommend the series.
This is a story in the Blasphemy world it's Master Alex's turn, as a Sadist he was beginning to feel that he would never find someone who could take the pain he likes to deliver. Jamie has another failed relationship and while getting a tattoo a conversation sparks a realisation to what he needs. When these two meet sparks fly.
This book is so good, introducing someone into the BDSM world however I believe would take abit longer, and limits wouldn't have been pushed that far one the first time but then this is fiction. I did enjoy it.
