Synopsis

Sometimes taking control is what you need to do and sometimes the best thing you can do is give that control up.

In the summer between Logan’s junior and senior years of college, these two will find out more about each other and themselves than they imagined.

While unhappy to be missing four weeks of Christian’s company, Logan is thrilled to spend a month with his father’s relatives in New York. A naturally gregarious individual, he is used to winning people over and getting things right. Unfortunately, the Mannettes are not what he expects and for the first time in his life, he finds himself seriously doubting who he is.

Christian has regained some of his old self-esteem and is taking on new challenges. Besides growing in the relationship he has with Logan, he takes the time his boyfriend is away to learn more about domestic discipline. He learns a little online but it is actually Gregory, Logan’s father, where he gains most of his information. Including the fact that his natural strength puts him in a leadership position he isn’t expecting.

When Logan returns to a strong, self-assured Christian, it is with complete relief. As discussions turn to domestic discipline and they realize their true roles within their current and future relationship, both of them are able to let their inhibitions go and together their connection grows surprising Logan to an epiphany.

*Warning: Contains BDSM elements with M/M spanking scenes.*

Again I have to say I’m amazed at how much I ended up loving this story. I’m not normally a big fan of contemporary romances, which this one kind of was as there wasn’t a whole lot of naughty scenes in it, but more about love and a growing relationship.
It was really captivating to watch as the two men learned what worked in their relationship regardless of what others thought.
I do have to say the formatting issues were quite distracting at first (some of the text is center justified while others are left), but it was easier to ignore the farther into the story I got.
Also, the reason for the lost star, is that I felt like the whole family thing and the whole issue Logan deals with while there just didn’t work for me… It seemed to come on so suddenly and didn’t really come across as real for such a meltdown over what happened.
The spanking with his dad was….awkward. I almost felt like he had more than a father/son relationship with at times because of how close they were and how they reacted during that scene.
Other than that, I really enjoyed the book and the way it handled the topic of domestic discipline.

AuthorBio

Thianna loves to write strong stories with even stronger heroes. While all of her books have an erotic overtone, it is the story that is the most important to her. “The story should be able to stand on its own. The erotic elements are an add-on.”

She enjoys writing about couples with kink, paranormal couples, and straight out strangeness. But more on that later… mm.thiannad.com.
