This was a book that may not be for everyone since it is all about the BDSM scene but although that is a topic I am not very familiar with or truly understand it still was a story about two men in search of love and acceptance and it didn’t matter what their sexual preferences were it was still a lovely story.
Heath Snow loves books and owns Wordsmith Books. He is obsessed with stories about BDSM and only knows about it through those books. His knowledge of the BDSM scene was only what the books described until he realized that the fantasy was a reality.
Xavier James gets a call from an old friend reminding him of his birthday get together the next night and to not forget a gift. It was his visit to Heath’s bookstore that would change many lives. Although it was after hours Heath opened the door to a handsome man that turned his head, a man who invited him to the party the next night hoping that he would come. Of course Heath didn’t show up but that didn’t stop Xavier from coming to the store again especially when he was saw the book that Heath was reading and saw him as his new Sub.
Xavier took Heath to Secrets a BDSM club and it opened a whole new world to Heath a world he only dreamed of. Heath opened Xavier’s eyes also since for the past few years he has put his career ahead of friendships and relationships now he wants to rejoin the world he left behind the world where he is the Dom and Heath is his Sub.
There is alot of sex but between two men who willingly enter into a role playing scenario and who take very special care to consider the other’s feelings. As I said I am not that familiar with the BDSM scene but this book let me see that it is all about love between a Dom and Sub, all about caring and trust. I totally loved the two main characters and the secondary characters were amazing even as subs and doms they were always there with a helping hand.
When Xavier’s career threatens to destroy what he and Heath have built he has a choice to make love or career. Will Xavier’s heart win out in the end.
