Story Blurb:
Joel has finally walked away from his abusive ex and is ready to meet new people. But that isn’t easy for a guy who’s shy, self-conscious, and struggling with his body image.

Andre has wanted Joel since the first time he laid eyes on him, and finally Joel is single. But Andre is a Dom and a sadist, and Joel is unapologetically vanilla. There’s no happy medium—either Andre reins in the kinky side that took him years to accept, or Joel grits his teeth and subjects himself to kinks that aren’t his thing. No matter who bends, someone’s going to be unhappy.

They agree to walk away, but they keep circling back to each other. Though their kinks might not line up, the chemistry between them sizzles and the emotional connection keeps getting deeper. But none of that will get them anywhere if they can’t find some kind of middle ground in the bedroom.


My Review:
This is a fairly short book. As a result, there's not a lot of space on the page devoted to delving into the details of the heroes' lives. Overall, for me, that worked just because there are times when I want a quick and dirty read...and I did enjoy what was on the page. 

Joel had a bad relationship. The true details of how it all fell apart are a bit vague...there was more than a little abuse that everyone could see, but Joel himself. He just thought he was being a good sub and although he hated almost all of that, he'd been brainwashed to a certain extent. He never wants to go there again...in either the kink or that kind of relationship. But now that his ex is out of his life, he's floundering. All his friends and social life was through the kink. How does that work now that the kink is out of his life?

Andre is a Dom who was fascinated by Joel from first sight...three years ago. But Joel was taken so he never acted on it. Now's his chance, except their kinks do NOT match up, although their chemistry most certainly does. 

I loved these two together. It was interesting seeing how they navigated the new levels of their relationship and negotiated how things could work between them with their very differing needs. Like I said this book isn't very long, but I thought it was a pretty satisfying read. I enjoyed it quite a bit. There's a bit of kink present, but this is really more about the relationship. It was a fun little read. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
