Title: Silver Ties (Silver #3)
Author Name: Patricia Logan
Publication Date: March 2015
A serial killer is preying upon gay men in Los Angeles. Detective Cassidy Ryan of the LAPD is out to stop the monster before more mutilated corpses turn up. The victims have one thing in common and it leads back to an infamous online club called DOMZ.com. The website owner, Zachary Teak, is stunningly gorgeous and infuriatingly uncooperative. Having spent years in vice, investigating crimes fueled by pornography, Cassidy hates the Dom on sight.
Zack Teak is a wealthy man and a popular Dom with a long waiting list of subs who beg to lick his boots. The moment he meets the detective, a former Navy SEAL, he is determined to help the handsome, blond hunk explore his own submissive nature but Cassidy is having none of it.
As Cassidy closes in on the killer, he succumbs to Teak’s charms, finding that it’s okay to give up control and let Zack take charge. Join the men as they flush out a killer while trying not to become victims themselves.
Cassidy Ryan is a beautiful blonde homicide detective hunting a twisted serial killer. Zachary Teak is a professional Dom running an online BDSM club. When the investigation takes Cassidy to Zack’s club, the detective doesn’t quite know whether to arrest Zach for murder or let the Dom fuck him.
This is the first suspense story I’ve read from Patricia Logan and I loved it. The men are hot, the murders are grizzly, the clues are carefully constructed and the murderer remains elusive. Supporting characters are well developed and there are brief cameo appearances from other Logan men.
The relationship between Zack and Cassidy is perilous. Zack might be a serial killer – he is a professional sex worker – and Cassidy knows he should stay away. But Zack helps Cassidy understand his naturally submissive nature and makes him feel cared for.
Patricia Logan writes Cassidy’s initiation into the BDSM lifestyle perfectly. The scenes are hot and sometimes intense, but Logan initiates her readers just as carefully as Master Z prepares the good detective. This is a very sexy BDSM 101!
The only thing keeping this from a 5* rating is the ending. What starts as a murder mystery with a touch of romance becomes a romance where one character happens to be a detective. After following Detective Ryan’s case from the initial crime scenes, I expected more of a climactic ending.
This book was so amazing I just couldn’t put it d own. The writing was so descriptive you could visualize everything. Besides the gruesome murder plot we are also taken into the life of a Dom. The murders in themselves were a great story, very detailed, kept you guessing till the reveal. The life of the Dom had to take some investigating into, to make it seem so real. The sex scenes were very hot!
Zach was the Dom and I found him very tender and loving to his subs. Cassidy, so negative at the beginning. But it was so touching how he was willing to try new things with Zach even though he was scared. He trusted Zach not to hurt him, that just made them feel so real. I loved how intense the author made the vibes that passed between them.
There was only one thing that bugged me, it was the reference “boy” that Zach called Cassidy. Even though I personally didn’t like that, it didn’t change my mind that this book deserves 5 stars. Patricia Logan excelled at telling this story, I totally enjoyed it.
Cassidy finally relented, looking side to side to assure that he was alone as he reached down, unzipping his slacks, and pulling out his hard cock. He looked down, noting that he was swollen and red, the circumcised head leaking precome down the length of his shaft as he began to stroke it.
“Does it turn you on, Detective? I’d love to do a scene with you, Detective.” Zachary Teak’s sexy voice played in his head as his hand sped faster, pumping him closer and closer to the orgasm which was just out of his reach. Cassidy opened his mouth, panting. He suddenly imagined himself laid over that vault-like device, tied down while Teak fucked him, harder and harder, holding him in the middle of his back with one hand and pulling on his cock with the other. He pictured Teak’s orgasm roaring over him, feeling the man’s dick throb in his well-abused ass, his own cock spilling on the floor beneath them at the same time.
With a gasp, Cassidy came, shooting so high, that he hit the steering wheel. Cassidy milked his orgasm, looking down at the mess he was making in the car, praying that he didn’t get any of his spunk on his suit pants.
