I absolutely loved this erotic novella. As a kinkster myself, it's always refreshing to find kink in M/M that rings genuine. What the author got especially right was the emotional dynamic between the main characters. I found myself very connected to Blake and enamored with Vadim right along with him. Both characters felt like real people, and Vadim was the perfect combination of cruel, caring, and possessive. He's the type of top most masochists would love to be with. The sex and kink scenes were scorching, with hot dialogue as well, and there was a lovely romantic element to the central relationship.
The only caveat I have with recommending this is that there was some on-screen homophobia and slurs from side characters. This served to make Vadim an even more likable and sexy love interest but did add a touch of uncomfortable angst for me as a queer person. Still, I very much enjoyed the story.
Vadim and Blake have an instant connection and fit well together (hello, sadist, meet masochist).and it is HOT. Personally, I'm a WIMP. Like, spanking does not appeal to me at ALL. But Blake SO clearly gets off on it and yearns for more that it's still sexy. And despite expecting this to be pure erotica and no romance, there's still an "aw" moment at the end. It was also edited well, which is sometimes lacking in erotic shorts. Overall, it was a fun and sexy escape from reality for a little while.
“We can’t wrap up this year’s paddling of the pledges until we hand the paddle over to our Chief Punishment Officer and resident sadist, Vadim.”
Before pledging Blake didn't know he could or would enjoy being humiliated and spanked. Luckily for him Vadim saw just how much Blake enjoyed the punishments and pick Blake as his little brother for the next four weeks of rush.
“Like a blank canvas,” Vadim said. He traced the periphery of Blake’s a** cheeks, running his fingers over all the swells and curves.
I really enjoy both Blake and Vadim's relationship through-out rush. Vadim doesn't hold back and Blake takes it like the good little brother he is. This book is hot and sweet.
