Laurence Dalziel is worn down and washed up, and for him, the BDSM scene is all played out. Six years on from his last relationship, he's pushing 40 and tired of going through the motions of submission. Then he meets Toby Finch. Nineteen years old. Fearless, fierce, and vulnerable. Everything Laurie can't remember being. Toby doesn't know who he wants to be or what he wants to do. But he knows, with all the certainty of youth, that he wants Laurie. He wants him on his knees.

This story was just perfect, nice balance and a look at BDSM I haven’t seen in other novels. A sub teaching a Dom and the book deals a lot with the physiological aspects. The choice of submission and the vulnerably of both parties. It was perfect

There are three ways up to Castle View from the town of Castle Rock: Route 117, Pleasant Road, and the Suicide Stairs. Every day in the summer of 1974, 12-year-old Gwendy Peterson has taken the stairs, which are held by strong (if time-rusted) iron bolts and zigzag up the cliffside. At the top of the stairs, Gwendy catches her breath and listens to the shouts of the kids on the playground. One day a stranger calls to Gwendy: "Hey, girl. Come on over here for a bit. We ought to palaver, you and me."

No crazy climax, jump out surprised or horror here, interesting, makes you think type of story. Very short but I don't feel it would have added anything to the story for it to be longer. A lot of people feel this story falls short and after reading the reviews I wasn't expecting much. I was very intrigued and pleasantly surprised however. I would recommend it but don't go in expecting typical Stephan King work.

As the son of a wealthy man, Enitan Javed has spent his life frivolously - drinking, fighting, and making love. But after his father dies, Enitan is unjustly accused of murdering him and is given the harshest sentence possible. Judged irredeemable, he is banished to the Downs. As even young children know, nothing lives in the Downs except demons who delight in torturing the condemned. Brutalized by the men who transport him to his fate, Enitan has nothing left but his thirst for vengeance.

Reading the plot I thought it would be darker with some more rape or torture but it's very mild. It's a very healing human story and fairly simple but with lovable characters, I wish it were a little longer with more details of the village and such but great story.

Growing up in a small town in Georgia hasn't prepared him for the more liberal life of a student at the university in Athens. Add to that the teachings of his parents and his church, and you have one shy young man who feels out of his depth. Working on his daddy's farm hasn't given him any chance of a social life, certainly not one like the clubs of Atlanta have to offer. Not that Tommy feels comfortable when he gets to sample it - Momma's lectures still ring loudly inside his head.

High Lord Deandred now possesses Rand, a cocky stealth fighter who caused him no end of trouble during the war. Deandred needs to satisfy his potent lust for conquest during the truce. Conquering Rand will be just the diversion he needs. Surrendering to become a prisoner was never in Rand's service contract - especially not when he's being handed over to the super-human deviant who's been trying to catch him for years. Now he's just supposed to turn himself over?

OMG I loved this book, it was different and had good story and some sex that was just enough. Didn't hit you over the head with anything but wrapped up rather easily but I can get past that. The narrower and the writer are quickly becoming my favorites.

Anyone who frequents Collars & Cuffs knows Dorian Forrester is built for pain, including Dorian himself. But everyone has it wrong. For six years, Dorian's chased a feeling that remains tantalizingly out of his reach. Unteachable, Dorian can take anything and everything a Dom can throw at him. Still, it's not enough. Dorian needs...something more, something he won't find at Collars & Cuffs.

I've been waiting for a novel surrounding Dorian sense book 1 and this did not disappoint. I even enjoyed the performance which honest drove me a bit crazy in other books. I think this is my favorite in the series.

Since the death of his submissive lover two years ago, Leo hasn't been living--merely existing. He focuses on making Collars & Cuffs, a BDSM club in Manchester's gay village, successful. That changes the night he and his business partner have their weekly meeting at Severinos. Leo can't keep his eyes off the new server. The shy man seems determined to avoid Leo's gaze, but that's like a red rag to a bull. Leo loves a challenge.
