Recently returned to the UK after living in the States since he was 11, 29-year-old Andrew Barrett is determined to keep busy and make a new life for himself. He works full time as a copywriter and strips at a club on Canal Street on weekends. But it still leaves him too much time to think. Then he finds the BDSM club, Collars & Cuffs, where he is their youngest Dom. Young doesn't mean inexperienced, however. All this activity keeps him focused with no time to dwell on the past. But the past has a way of intruding on the present.
It's been four long years since Gareth Michaels last set foot inside Collars & Cuffs. But when he finally summons his courage and steps back into his former world, he finds the man who drove him away is still a member, and what's more, he wants Gareth back. Two men in pain need the freedom they find in each other, but it takes another man's horrific plans to make them see it.

Where it differs is that it's not primarily a BDSM story in the true sense of a dominant/submissive relationship and does not feature a heavy D/s relationship between the main characters.Instead this is the story of a relationship building between two men who work as strippers at a club. Andrew is a Dom and Gareth is submissive but this isn't the crux of their relationship.Throw in some time spent with characters from the previous books plus a dash of drama as the bad guy comes out to play, and it's a nice continuation of the series!
This book is by FAR the best of the 5 book series. Thankfully I listened to this one last because the actual last book, Damian's Discipline, is the worst one. In my opinion the only other book worth bothering with is the 1st one An Unlocked Heart. Both the writing and the voices used by the narrator is this series are problematic, but a Dance w/ Domination rises far above the others and is definitely worth the time & credit!
I love these books. But the narrator don't seem to be to good at making voices for the people he read... And it's a bit frustrating if you hear all books after each other that the different people don't sound the same in the different books.
I'm all about the romance. I like the romance to be understated and hot. I love to feel that the characters belong with each other whether it be m/f or m/m. I hope I can find more people who share my same passions so that I can share the reviews and suggestions.
The book was well written. I haven't read any of the others but I couldn't get past the psychological issues that being in a gay D/s role is. I understood why some of the parts were written by the author to show the healing process and ready to love aspect of the hero, but honestly I prefer a good old fashioned coming of age gay romance novel, where the characters don't realize they are gay, but maybe gay for only each other.
Loved this book like all the others by this author. The narrator as usual is fantastic.
