- Although there are noticeable similarities in the actions of Michael's Dom characters, not all of the Hammer characters and relationships are exactly the same. They present a varied view of the BDSM lifestyle, from light to hardcore, casual to lifestyle, intensely private to public.
- I liked reading about a Dom who falls for another macho, masculine guy and not an adorable little twink who's an obvious bottom. Don't get me wrong: I love the strong man/twink pairings, but this was something different I haven't often seen from this author. There's a lot of jockeying for the upper hand in this relationship. Frank doesn't just sit back and give up control easily.
- Like many of Michael's books, this one shows a lot of brief encounters between the two main characters which combine to create a pretty complete picture of their time together. It's not just the important moments we get to see. It's the seemingly insignificant ones, too: shopping, simple conversations, quiet nights in, etc. This format makes the relationships seem less dramatic to me and more real.
- There's a note at the beginning of the book that places the story "immediately after Owned and many years before Bent." This won't be important unless you're a dedicated fan of the Hammer series like I am. But I rejoiced at this little bit of context pertaining to the Hammer universe's timeline; I've puzzled before about how all of the stories fit together.Read more ›
Gordon and his Frankie after the relationship is well establish. I think that the fact both men were retired and had similar backgrounds probably helped the relationship growth earlier than in most of the stories I've read in this series so far. Also, while Frank had problems and was needed he was not nearly as needed as the other subs I've met in the series thus far.
I also appreciated the fact that Gordon was a confident enough in his dominance that he could give Frank the privacy that the he needed. Even when he began to think about collars it was something that would be done in the privacy of their own home.
Overall a great book and would be good for someone looking for something a bit more edgy but maybe not completely comfortable with a more fast paced "push" into the lifestyle.
