Blurb:  Putting a leash on a dominant sub is a task that may require two Doms to accomplish.

When relocation agent Eric Swann is assigned to ease young Connor Prescott into moving back to London, he expects the boy to be more enthusiastic—and less irritating.

Used to roaming freely among his mother’s D-list celebrity friends, Connor is anything but happy when his father decides to put him on a leash—a leash with a far too attractive handler on the other end. Secretly craving a man who knows how to yank his chain and show him exactly where the limits are, Connor does what he’s best at. He manipulates Eric into giving him what he wants, making the man reveal a side of him that Eric himself isn’t ready to accept.

Trained by one of the quirkiest Dom/sub-teams in the country, Dom Tyler Kane knows exactly how to handle a toppy sub. He keeps Connor on his toes, er, knees, in the bedroom, but when his capricious lover sets his heart on pushing yet another limit, Tyler finds himself not only with a dominant sub but also with a Dom who has yet to accept his true identity.


Review:  Saved the best for last!  I loved this one.  It was so different and totally unexpected.  It starts off with Eric and Conner who have an instant attraction, despite their sort of working together and despite their age difference, etc.  However, after Connor’s sexual needs become too much for Eric, realizing they are bringing out a much darker dominant side than Eric is comfortable with, the two part ways.

The story fast forwards five years when Eric meets Conner again.  The same chemistry is there and they share a steamy night of reunion sex.  When Eric ends up meeting Connor’s husband, Tyler, whom we met in the previous books, things get pretty interesting.   Tyler is not only Conner’s husband, but also his dom.  He allows Conner to pursue Eric and they talk him into joining their relationship.

Eric is a bit new to D/S and is still concerned over losing control.  But, just as Tyler knows how to handle Conner, he finds a way for it to all work for them with Conner, ever the manipulator, being the sub-dominant in the trio with Tyler holding the top dom spot.

I loved these guys together and the uniqueness of how they came together, their back stories, etc.  There is a lot of sex, but it is off-the-charts hot.  Definitely my favorite of the series so far and I’m looking forward to more.

Overall Impression: I loved it
