Dylan Carter has always played second fiddle to his perfect older brother, but now that brother is implicated in a terrible crime, and Dylan's family is imploding. Dylan can’t hide anymore. Knowing he’s falling apart, he searches for something or someone to hold him together—and lands in a BDSM bar called the Stonewall. Dylan doesn’t understand Miss Dolphinia, the hard-drinking queen who seems determined to play matchmaker. But more confusing is the way the powerful men in leather make him feel. In her wisdom, Miss Dolphinia sends Dylan off to a back room for his introduction to the world of erotic spankings and bondage. Dylan’s teacher—for want of a better word—is the very dominant Vin Hauser. Vin likes to play hard, but he’s honest with himself—he knows all those men want is a strong hand, not a long-term relationship. Yet Vin can’t help but hope Dylan might be different. With controversy over his brother’s sins stirring up danger around him, Dylan needs Vin’s support more than ever. But until he and Vin learn to trust each other, Dylan will have to face his fear and the growing threats alone.

Dylan was such a wonderful character! I really had fun while reading this book. His great ways to describe his life, hilarious! But... the relationship did not quite develop the way I had hoped. So 3 stars..It starts off with Dylan walking in to a club.. A hardcore BDSM club.. He is looking for some...
This was a solid and highly entertaining gay BDSM novel. I would go with a straight A for the romance and sex parts, but there is a huge subplot surrounding the submissive hero's older brother and not everything, especially where the parents are concerned rings true, so I go with a B+.
Once I got past the introductory phase of the book I was completely engaged. Not just in the sex and the romance of Vin and Dylan but in the total train wreck that was Gary. Really, I was captivated by Dylan's family dynamics as a whole and how fucked up they were but also how believable they were. ...
Blurb doesn't sound like my thing, but the ratings make me curious.
