Ten years later, out as gay and a Dom, Will auditions for membership at Club Deviant, only to find that he’s been assigned an all-too-familiar submissive. His scene with Dustin feels like fate, and he’s determined to get back what they once had—and more.
Dustin had buried the pain of rejection deep, but playing with Will conjures all his memories of that one electric moment they shared and the friendship it destroyed. He’s built walls around his heart high enough to keep out the Trojan Army, but together, he and Will may find the courage to move beyond their past and face their future together.
Publisher's note: This is a heavily expanded and revised edition of Velvet Memories, previously published in 2011.My Review:
Ten years ago, Will blew it and Dustin never quite recovered from his betrayal. Now they've been thrown together at Dustin's BDSM club where he's a sub. Will is now a Dom who embraces who he is...all those things (gay AND kinky) that he couldn't accept about himself ten years ago. But he really hurt Dustin back then, so Dustin can't trust him now...the key to a sub/Dom relationship to work. The thing that hasn't changed is their incredible chemistry. They both desperately still want the other. The issue, Will is ready to act on that chemistry while Dustin says, "No way!"
There's a lot of back and forth between these two guys, but at the heart of the book is their incredible chemistry which can't be denied. I enjoyed the book for that. I love how much Dustin wants to deny Will, but his body just won't get onboard with what his head demands. It makes for a really sexy read that I enjoyed quite a bit.
