I liked the fact that we saw all things through Kyle's eyes, the first person narration, also in present tense let us explore the thing with him together - an experience quite hot tbh sometimes but also intriguing. It also gave us as a reader the perfect insight of his daily life, of his chatty, bratty attitude - which I liked a lot - and how he experiences his life as a sub in a BDSM club searching for "his" Dom.
Kyle is trying to catch Aiden's attention the moment he met him in the club. What I like about this was not only the way how Kyle tries to catch his attention - in attending to special demonstration scenes in the club with different doms, male and female - but also that we got into the story in medias res. We were there right from the start, there wasn't unnecessary pre-rambling, but we got enough information to see the characters develop from page one on and how the different cast is interacting with each other, how they relationships are. It gave me the necessary intro and insight of the different dynamics.
Some might be irritated by the on page M/F scenes and that Kyle is bisexual and openly having scenes not only with male but also female Doms. As much as I understand that people aren't super fond of the lenght or explicity of the scenes, it never was mentioned in the blurb that Kyle isn't bisexual (the publisher's website actually mentions it) or that he is switching his partners when it comes to his doms. For me the scenes were perfect and I loved them dearly. They are graphic, yes, they are explicit but the commitment, the agreement on both sides is what I cherish and value. We also get Kyle's preferences and through the scenes we got what he is searching for.
I'd say even if you normally don't read M/F: give it a try, because the book and the scenes, may it Kyle with Renee or Robert or later Aiden are full of emotions, in different ways but all so hot and intriguing and fascinating. I also recommend this book with these scenes for non M/M readers who love BDSM stories in general and wanna try something new, because it's exactly what I'd pick up if I'd wanna get the "best" of both. ;) As I said the commitment and the respect in the other's limits is so capturing.
Within the book we explore the events through and with Kyle. I loved the community, the acceptance and the good natured jokes they make, the friendly mocking. It's like a big family, a community, where the different members share the same tastes, know about limits, no-gos and preferences.
When Kyle and Aiden explore their time together, get to know each other better, the book shifts a bit, but not to a negative aspect, oh no. In fact I loved how different Kyle is with Aiden without totally losing his character. But he is seeing Aiden differently, he starts to like him for him, want to share more with him than just scenes and this tentative, gentle, actually vulnerable side of Kyle is charming and fascinating.
I really loved that with Aiden we had a non-alpha-like dom, someone who's not running like a mindless caveman. He is a history professor, knows how to interact with a lot of people and how to present himself properly. He has a certain dicipline and the way he acts in the scenes, how he dominates Kyle is hot and well-displayed as well as balanced. There is strength behind his actions, his words and orders but he never forces Kyle to anything. His caring nature is clear right from the start, and the scenes are way to let loose but still to remain control, never to overwhelm.
Both agree to a two-weeks trial and I loved how this developed and the end made it very promising what we can expect. For now I'd call the end a HFN - because there's so much potential - and I'm really looking forward what we see in book two, I hope for more about the two, of course but would love to read about other pairings too. :) I have to wait and see.
I can totally recommend this book and enjoyed it dearly, it was in all departments well developed, showed commitment and agreement in the right places, was full of hot, thrilling scenes but had also the gentle touch. The cover - I've to stress it out at this place - is the perfect conclusion of it: rough, but gentle, strength against (commited) surrender and submisson. 5 out of 5 stars for it. It won't be definitely the last book I pick up by the author. :)
Review originally posted on my blog with added content Mikku-chan / A world full of words
I can be short about this ...
Yesss this author is still master in the bdsm scene and building up scenes, the anticipation is killing.
Kyle is looking for something permanent.
When he sees the New Guy he knows what he wants... hmmm...easier said than done.
He has a plan... so he will be noticed as a good sub.
This is the story about Kyle, submissive, witty and longing for a long time relationship... sometimes self-confident sometimes without... he wants so much...and doesn't want to seem desperate for it.
When Kyle and Aidan are together it's pure temptation and seduction and highly erotic.
All the scenes are just breathtaking put down. All the pre and aftercare wonderful!
We get a amazing look inside the bdsm scene, only from a different pov.
Kyle and Aidan personalities are wonderful developed... and still there is plenty to learn about them. I specially loved the parts where only Kyle and Aidan are involved in.
Well-conceived and extremely entertaining. The writing is sublime.
I'm desperate for the next installment...
As for how precise and correct the environment, in which the book takes place, is described I have no idea. However, it is written in a very convincing way so I'm left with the belief, that it is as described by the author. Also it's tasteful and more romance than erotica making it an enjoyable book.
The writing itself is good and the author has the story evolving smoothly and at a nice pace throughout the pages. The characters made me laugh and enjoy myself with their personalities and I felt like they had a depth to them - even with the support cast I found myself curious to know more about them.
This is a great book that I can highly recommend even if it's not your usual genre - take a chance. You just might like it too.
