Christmas is a time for goodwill to all, but Collars and Cuffs co-owner Thomas Williams receives an unexpected gift that chills him to the bone. A Dom from another Manchester club asks Thomas for his help rescuing an abused submissive, Peter Nicholson. Thomas takes in the young man as a favor to a friend, offering space and time to heal, but he makes it clear he's never had a sub and doesn't want one.
Peter finds Thomas' home calm and peaceful, but his past has left him unwilling to trust another Dom. When Thomas doesn't behave as Peter expects, Peter's nightmares begin to fade, and he decides he'd like to learn more about D/s life. A well-known trainer of submissives, Thomas begins to teach Peter, but as the new submissive opens up to him, Thomas finds he cares more for Peter than he should. Just as he decides it's time to find a permanent Dom for Peter, they discover Peter's tormentor is still very much a threat. With their lives in danger, Thomas can't deny his feelings for Peter any longer. The question now becomes: can Peter make it out of the lion's den alive, so Thomas can tell his boy he loves him?

I like sci-fy and fantasy. My favorite books are Karen Miller's Kingmaker Kingbreaker series and Patrick Rothfuss' Kingkiller Chronicles.
I liked everything about this book. I was invested in the characters lives and especially liked the fact that there was such a large age difference between them. I'm glad they were able to overcome this. Sex scenes were great. My only criticism would be that I wish Thomas had dropped out of Master mode more often and called Peter by his name rather than boy.
GREAT BOOK!! I loved this book, even though the narrator made Thomas sound a bit like Kermit the frog Lolz there goes my childhood memories!! XD
For anyone who has wanted to know about what it's really like in the BDSM scene this book is highly important to read or listen to. The author writes beautifully honest and descriptive scenes that leave you wanting to only continue to the next chapter. The characters are real and make you feel like you want to be one of them have been one of them or would like to encounter one of them or more. Nick is also an amazing reader. His ability to change his voice and really make you feel as if you are that character is an important part of this book as well. I truly look forward to more in the series.
A reviewer at Guilty Indulgence Review Site. I don't go anywhere without a book -ebook or audiobook.
In this second book in the series, Wells goes even deeper into the D/s relationship. Thomas and Peter discover an unconventional love that will melt reader's hearts. I've adored all the men in the series so far, and especially enjoy the cameos others make in each book.
Well done in audio.

What a beautiful story I got lost between the pages now it's finished I have to drag myself away !
Nick J. Russo is perfect he brought the book to life .
I love the books, and the narrator has a nice voice to listen to. But the voices he make for people is a bit weird. And they all not match the voices the same characters had in the first book.
But all over great.
Just as good as the 1st book. I loved seeing Alex and Leo and them being involved throughout. I loved that Peter had a friend in Alex.
Thomas.. this Dom is amazing, patient, and beautiful. A Dom who trains other Doms and Subs perhaps he needs to be, but wow. How he handled every aspect of Peter was awesome. This book pushed all my buttons and made me cry.
There is no age to love! Thomas learned well that, as a fifty-six years old man, he could love and be loved! And destiny brought him his love match... Peter! Peter has twenty-six, he is a man that endured hell as a another man's sub, and that found in Thomas his sanctuary, where he felt protected, where he learned what a D/s relationship is, and most of all, he learned how to trust on another man!
"Story good, narration dodgy"
I enjoyed the story, not just about a Dom sub relationship developing but it also has intrigue.
My problem was the narration. The American narrator attempting English dialects is 'interesting'. Thomas sounds like Kermit the Frog.
