Blurb: At the mercy of two Dominants…is there any point in resisting?
Ethan knows very little about his lover’s past, so when an old friend from Max’s university days arrives in Las Vegas, Ethan thinks it’s his chance to learn more about the man he loves. What he hasn’t counted on is this friend coming from a devious, highly sexual period of Max’s life when the two men were members of the Doms Club, which sought out and tested the limits of potential submissives. Now, Max’s friend wants to test Ethan’s limits. Ethan badly wants to prove that he is the perfect submissive for Max, but maybe this time he’s out of his league. Numerous graphic sexual situations. BDSM
Review: There is always something in each of these books that keeps things from feeling stagnant. This time around it isn’t a client but an old friend from Max’s past. Gordon and Max grew up together, honed their dominating skills together even creating the Doms Club. Up until this point, much to Ethan’s dismay, Max has kept his past separate from his current life only giving small details here and there. Gordon coming to visit is a chance for Ethan to learn more.
But, nothing is ever easy with these guys, or they don’t ever get by without being challenged in some way. Gordon’s reasons for being in Vegas, coupled with all of the actions since his arrival, make things very interesting. Having another dom around, pushing to find what Max sees in Ethan, causes some issues, though the guys stand strong. Max remains protective of Ethan, even though he does let things go a little far at one point in an effort to prove some things to Gordon.
Something else happens that has the potential to cause some real damage. But these guys have such a powerful and strong relationship that they are able to overcome it, as well as see and understand the reasons behind it. It is these types of challenges, although I’d be happy to never have one quite like this again, that really show how much these guys love and are perfect for each other. Just as their relationship and love has grown, so to has my love for them. I’m ready for the next adventure.
