Story Overview:
It's all fun and games until somebody falls in love.

Chase has just arrived at a much anticipated leather convention, and he’s about to lose his mind. Not only is his ex attending, but Chase is also rooming with Derek, a submissive he’s been dying to top. Although Derek is in search of a Dom, he made it painfully clear when the two of them hooked up for a very hot—but very vanilla—night just before the convention that he wasn’t interested in submitting to Chase.

Derek isn’t stupid. No matter how desperate he is to submit to Chase, he wants no part of a rebound relationship. As long as Chase is still pining after the sub who broke his heart a few months ago, Derek’s keeping him at arm’s length. Besides, there’s another Dom at this convention, the gorgeous Master Raul, who Derek is determined to attract.

But when Chase and Derek are confronted with all their kinks, from ropes to leather, bondage to flogging—not to mention each other—they can only ignore their mutual attraction for so long.

My Review:
Okay, straight up, this book truly has one purpose....really hot sex...and I'll admit, it served that purpose really well. This book was hot...and entertaining. I enjoyed it. 

This book covers a little less than a week in time as Chase and Derek attend a BDSM convention. But there are lots of underlying issues between them. They've been friends for a long time. Chase was in a two and half year relationship that ended unexpectedly (to him). Derek is the dungeon man-whore. He truly wants one dom but hasn't been able to find that perfect he flits guy to guy. The night before they left for the con, they slept together, but it was vanilla...something Derek asked for and Chase felt was a slap against him as a dom. They both have feelings for each other, but they can't seem to talk about that.

For the con, they are staying in the same room and the sexual chemistry is through the roof. The two guys act as a committed couple...they just aren't having the sex to go along with it. It truly makes for a great read. I liked the two guys and getting to switch between their POV's as they move throughout their week. 

I'm torn with how I feel about their extra-curricular activities for the week. On the one hand, I think exhibitionism, especially with guys, is the norm for the BDSM lifestyle. And honestly, I was okay with Derek playing when Chase was there supervising. I wasn't as fond of the fact that Chase had his own extracurricular activities which sent Derek into a tailspin...that didn't sit so well for me, but I'll admit I like monogamy in my books. 

But overall, I enjoyed this one. The BDSM con setting worked for me as did the backstory betweeen the two characters.  It was pretty sexy!
