But when his date demonstrates a different way of seeing things, their one night changes everything and forces Drew to recognize the difference between being a perfect sub and offering perfect submission to the man he craves.


My Review:
Aw, I really loved this 1Night Stand story. The best thing about it is that the two men have a history. Drew has wanted to sub for Holt for almost a year. In the meantime, he's not been able to have sex with anyone else. He doesn't desire anyone else. He's getting a bit desperate and has finally given up. He finally accepts that it's never going to happen with Holt so he contacts Madame Eve, hoping that a 1NS will help him get over his obsession. So you can imagine his surprise...and yes, anger....when his 1NS turns out to be Holt. 

I loved the set-up for this story. Drew has been burying who he really is to be the perfect sub for Holt, which is NOT what Holt truly wants. It turns out to be such a great story about the importance of being true to yourself before you can be something more to someone else. I loved Drew's bit of rebellion and bratiness. He truly wants Holt, but has finally hit the point where's he's had enough. He's not going to hold back anymore....nothing like a sub is supposed to act. But it shows that this is a guy who is his own person, too. It made him so much more attractive and a great character to read about. 

The other side of that is Holt. I loved how quickly it becomes apparent about what he really wants. Yes, he wants a sub, but not an automotron. He wants a sub who's also strong and capable. So attractive. 

This book was easy to love. It has a wonderful style to it. I really enjoyed both characters although we definitely get to know Drew better because the whole story is told from his POV. I liked the depth to the story. There is a lot of history woven into it to give a lot to this very short story. It was GOOD!
