All this is discussed over a meal and by the end of it, they're in love again. Phil starts training Terry to be a sub. There is apparently much discussion and mild scenes but that's mostly told and not shown. Within a couple of weeks they're living together. There's a catty model that Terry has photographed, that tries to "out" Terry as a kinkster, but that storyline never really goes anywhere. There's little sex until the end. That's when, after only another week or so, they do role play in a consensual non-con scene. Seemed a little much for a new couple, but whatever.
My issue was not getting any background for the characters and little character or world building. We also get very little relationship building. Mostly some discussions of their D/s issues. No chemistry or connection existed for me. The story seemed rather pointless with no real plot. I guess there's a second book, but I still like some substance in a first part. Morticia Knight was an author I read early on getting into MM. I kind of liked them then, but I'm not liking her style as an author now.
Although the characters were likable enough, I found something missing. Terry and Phil split up three years ago, and now Phil is back. I understand that there are lingering feelings, but I felt their reconnection was too easy. I would have liked some more background information to get a good feel for these men. Now it was like jumping right into the deep end, and for me, it was a huge jump from ex-partners to a D/s relationship. What I did like was the fact that both Terry and Phil had to learn to be in such a relationship. Most of the times the Dom is an established Dom and guides his partner into the submissive role. In this book, Phil also has to learn how to be a Dom. That is a nice change.
They have to get accustomed to their changing dynamics by talking, and trusting, each other. These talks climax into a role play where they are acting out Terry’s deepest secrets. Although I am not a stranger to reading BDSM, this is not the type of play I very much enjoy. It is very well described, though, and I had to remind myself that it was, indeed, role play. It was gripping. You can leave that to this author.
This is the first book in a series, and I am very much looking forward to reading more about Phil and Terry.
Triggers: Unwanted attention from a non-lover, consensual rape scene
I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.
I normally love Morticia Knight books - but this seems like it was not her style.
Phil and Terry are kind of an odd couple. It is hinted that they had a great relationship; one that would have lasted them a lifetime. But, when Phil is given an amazing opportunity, he leaves Terry behind without a second thought.
Three years have passed. Terry is a successful photographer who is trying to continue on with his life, but not doing it very successfully - he's existing, but not really living. Also, he's on edge when he has to work with an "up and coming" actor, Anson who is slipper and slimy.
Phil comes back hoping to rekindle things with Terry now that he has figured out that he is a Dom. He believes that Terry is a sub, based on how their relationship roles were before and is almost desperate in his attempt to see if Terry wants to try again - can trust Phil again.
This is where I have my largest qualm with this book - Terry instantly forgives - after three years of no contact, he's just ready to jump head first again. And, while I don't believe in punishing unnecessarily, it seems that there should have been more of a developing story. Not only does Terry forgive, but he tells Phil a secret fantasy of being forced by a stranger - a role that Phil takes and runs with. Now, while this isn't super graphic, there are implications for future book story-lines and scenes.
Another aspect that seemed strange was the ending. Now, while i can see that there is going to be at least one more book, the ending to this one was so abrupt that I had to go back and make sure that I hadn't missed anything. This just wasn't the type of writing or story that I had come to expect from Knight. I am hoping that the second installation goes better.
