Author Name: SJD Peterson
Publication Date & Length: December 30, 2013 – 200 pgs
Grant Maxwell, aka Max, wakes to find his coffeepot has died in the night. Not one who can start his day without his favorite brew, he heads to the local coffee shop. Max finds something even more appealing than caffeine in the form of a twenty-six-year-old hottie Aiden James. For the first time in his life, well-established, confident and respected Dom Max finds himself sputtering and unsure in the face of Aiden’s charms.
Aiden lives with three roommates, works a dead-end job, and isn’t sure where his life is heading, that is, until he meets Max. Max introduces him to a foreign yet intriguing lifestyle, and they soon discover they have something more than mutual attraction in common.
A shared kink is one thing, but Aiden’s past vanilla sexual experiences as well as his fear of losing himself in Max may keep Aiden from experiencing his fantasy. Max has an obstacle of his own to overcome. He must somehow figure out how to help Aiden explore his submissive side when, for the first time in his life, he’s head over heels in love.
This is the 3rd book in the series but you could read it as a standalone. If you read Tag Team then you will remember one of the scenes in this book when Grant is having a skype session with a patient and Aiden is in the background. Grant (aka Max) is an established Dom who happens to need coffee every morning. His coffee maker dies, goes to the coffee shop and sees Aiden and is instantly smitten. Grant has always been confident and sure of himself but Aiden has him all tongue tied. I find it sweet and endearing. Aiden is your average 20 something guy and basically vanilla, but of course has seen things online and is curious. Grant and Aiden go on a few dates and eventually Grant is introducing Aiden to his kinkier lifestyle. What comes as a shock to Grant is that Aiden happens to share one of his fantasies, pony play. The chemistry and sex between Grant and Aiden is off the charts. I love how they click even when they both have doubts about how they feel. I liked that there wasn’t a lot of angst or drama, I needed an enjoyable book and that is exactly what I got. I love this series and can’t wait for the next book.
