  • Experienced dominant Marcus has a stalker. On the plus side, the boy following him around his local leather club is gorgeous and a self-professed submissive. Unfortunately, he’s also inexperienced, bratty, and liable to drive Marcus insane within his incessant chatter and questions.

    Bret Daniels fell head over heels with Marcus the moment he first saw him. He’s willing to do whatever it takes to get Marcus’s attention and prove his worth as a submissive. He might not be a traditional sub, but he knows he has a lot to offer a dom who can handle his quirks.
    When Marcus gives in and agrees to do a scene with Bret, sparks fly. One scene quickly becomes another, and another. But will it be a case of once a brat, always a brat? Bret intends to prove to Marcus that—expectations and experiences aside—he deserves his master’s collar.
    This title is part of the Kinky Cupid universe.

  • Bomy’s Flutter: hot novella

  • World Building: Contemporary BDSM club, mostly.
    Characters: Bret is the kind of s I like to read about. He’s not meek or subdued by default, he’s someone’s s not a submissive by large. I loved the way he behaved around Marcus and the fact that he was so gutsy, going for what he wanted, giving it his best.
    Marcus was awesome as well, a mischievous D with a great sense of humor to boot. They had great chemistry and smoking hot smex, but there were also feelings evolving and I loved that.
    Plot: Focused on the romance, and considering there’s a lot going on there the story felt active and fun.
    Writing: Third person narrative from both Bret and Marcus’s POV, and I loved their voices.
    Curb Appeal: Hot stuff alert, for sure. The blurb got me hooked and the cover is yummy. Very high compulsive buy potential.

    All in all this was a great read, short, hot and lovely. If you’re into some (not extreme) BDSM reading, give it a try.
