To Mischa, life is simple. Doms are Doms and subs are for fucking, flogging, and bossing around. Until he meets Tom, that is. Tom is deeply offended when the stranger in the bar takes him for some kind of slave boy. Well, offended and more than a little excited by the thought of surrendering to Mischa. Mischa being Mischa, their meeting results in Tom losing his virginity in a way that's hotter than even his wildest fantasies.Mischa is drawn to Tom and makes another appointment. And then another, initiating Tom to every kink Mischa knows. They aren't scenes, of course, because Mischa has a "one boy, one scene" rule. But then again, Tom isn't exactly like his usual boys, and Mischa finds himself falling in love, though nowhere near ready to admit it. Luckily, Tom isn't exactly your stereotypical slave. Life is good -- until Tom gets attacked, and Mischa has to fight harder than ever to make Tom realize that he isn't going anywhere.

As it is, I totally fell in love with Mischa and Tom and would love to have another fix, because they became one of my favourite m/m...
First 30% was a struggle for me, so I kept stepping away from this. When the relationship developed more on the emotional side, I started to enjoy Mischa and Tom together. This included some new to me kink that wasn't really my thing, but I did enjoy much of the book. And it's certainly full of hot ...
ugh this was a horrible read. both the sub and dom were tstl in addition to behaving in unrealisticly. this just was not a believable story to me, real people do not act and react like these guys. in addition to that the major pain play did not do anything for me other than make me have a squicked ...
Okay, so I read this ages ago and never got around to writing a review. But this is definitely one of my faves. It's chock full of BDSM goodness, including medical play, pain, and CBT. So if that's not your thing...well, I might not have realised it was my thing until I read this. I mentioned it was...
