Synopsis

The men from Kiss of Leather gather together to rescue a terrified young sub. But it’s Master Derek who wants to keep him for good.

Master Gavin and his boy, Kyle, are celebrating their newly established bond when Master Josh calls requesting their help. Josh’s sub, David, needs the men to help his best friend from childhood while they’re away at a BDSM convention in San Francisco.

Corey ran away from his Master after a horrible scene, but he blames himself for everything that happened. No Master would ever want him if they were to find out what he did. Corey’s not sure if he’ll ever feel safe enough to give himself to a Master again anyway, even if all he’s ever wanted was to belong to somebody.

Master Derek agrees to watch over Corey until Josh and David return from the convention. All he needs is another pretty twink messing with his head and his heart, so the older, growly bear of a man determines to keep his distance. But when Corey wakes up screaming after a devastating nightmare, Derek is more drawn than ever to the young sub—the need to keep Corey safe from whatever or whoever has hurt him becoming his main priority.

Kyle and Corey develop a friendship when Corey assists Kyle in the dungeon furniture workshop. Kyle has his own fears—the ones that make him feel he’s broken because of the things he desires to do with Gavin. Through helping Kyle and receiving his own help via Derek, Corey decides he’s ready to let go of the demons from his past and move forward into a new life.

Now if Corey can only get Derek to believe that he’s ready—and to finally do something about it.

Reader Advisory: This book contains a flashback scene of rape by multiple aggressors.

Publisher’s Note: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series.

This book was a good addition to this series!

With this book you get a little more of Gavin and Kyle from the previous book along with Gavin’s business partner Derek and a new character Corey who has run away from his master after a very horrible scene. I want to say what this man Corey’s previous master did to him was so horrible I felt so bad for him. He is skittish when he is around Derek and Gavin because they both are DOM’s so you can’t really blame him after what happened to him before.

This book was a slow burn while Corey and works through what happened to him. I honestly not sure what I feel about Derek and Corey together because it was such a slow burn to me I did not really see much of them together at all. So I loved the way this author wrote these characters and this story. I am just unsure on how I feel about Derek and Corey together right now.

So all together I really liked this book!
I would recommend this book!

This story picks right up where Building Bonds left off. The blurb tells you the basics of the story but what it doesn’t tell you is how wonderful to Corey Derek is. Derek sees something right away in Corey and knows he has to be very careful in aspect, speech, touch, and reactions. Just as with Kyle in the first book, Corey has innocence to him that you can’t help but love. Another great book and I can’t wait to see what is next in this series.

This book follows the previous story, so I would recommend reading the first book before reading this.  While it’s not entirely necessary, the characters are building on each other and it helps the reader track.

Corey is slightly skittish when it comes to meeting new people, especially Doms.  However, because of a previous relationship, he reaches out to his best friend/brother when he finds himself living on the streets with nowhere to go.  I really wish that we would have seen more of Corey with David, but I do realize that this was Corey and Derek’s story.

I like how Corey’s evolution from mistrust to trust is not instantaneous, however, I do wish that even though we are given a glimpse of what happened to him, we knew more about the back story.

You then have Master Derek.  He seems intimidating, but recognizes his soul’s other half in this frightened sub, Corey.  I like how we were able to see him change in order to make Corey more comfortable, we were able to see that he was willing to do what it took in order to earn Corey’s trust.

I really enjoyed watching the friendship between Kyle and Corey build and despite Corey’s past, his willingness to help his new friend.

While this book is great at building the trust and relationship, is only has very limited BDSM and it is not really between the main characters.

Overall, this was a great way to introduce people to the world of BDSM – it’s not heavy, but it does show that a responsible relationship has give and take, rules that are talked about and a deep respect for each other.
