A dangerous game turns into unexpected pleasure…
Carter’s dream of running from his abusive family into the arms of the perfect Dom has been shattered. Virtually enslaved by a vicious arms dealer, he has to submit to any man his master gives him to.
Undercover agent Damien Crow is close to putting away the arms dealer he’s been hunting for years. All he has to do to gain the man’s trust is ‘play’ with the pretty boy with the frightened eyes and alluring corset piercing down his back. Being straight and not a practicing Dom, he has doubts he can pull off the effort. One look at his playmate changes his mind. The stakes are high, and he must put on a good show.
At first, Carter assumes Damien is just another brutal Dom to survive. But the big, brooding man reignites his passion and gives him something Carter hasn’t had in years—a safeword. It might be his last chance to enjoy being a sub and he embraces the role no matter what the consequences.
Publisher’s Note: This book has previously been released as part of the His Rules anthology with Pride Publishing.
I think that Damien was successful as a Dom, but his reluctance was somewhat strange. If he had been undercover as long as it seemed, he would have had to play this persona more than just the once, I would think. However, it seemed that this was his first time – they talked about his crash course and implement schooling…
Then you have Carter – he just seemed meek. There really wasn’t much to his character other than his complete submission because he knows what’s in store for him.
Overall, while this was short and just a taste of what I believe this author is capable of, I think that if you’re not used to BDSM writing, this would not be the book to start with. There are too many holes and it doesn’t offer much other than the one scene.
