book blurb
“You don’t ever have to keep anything you feel locked up, Clay. I’m your Dom, and whatever you need from me, I’ll gladly give to you.”
 
- Sergeant Logan Pierce
 
Police Officer Clay Foster is finally at peace and happy with his life. He enjoys his career as a member of Houston’s SWAT team, and he loves submitting to his Dom in the bedroom. His life is perfect, until one cruel act destroys Clay’s bubble of happiness. Shattered trust forces Clay to reevaluate his career, his relationship, and himself.
 
Sergeant Logan Pierce is the leader of Houston’s elite SWAT team. On the force, he’s the best at what he does. In private, the most important thing in his life is taking care of his submissive, Clay. Clay is his whole world, and Logan will do whatever is necessary to keep him safe. Even if that means going up against Clay’s stubbornness in order to help him heal.
 
Can Logan and Clay work together to rebuild their happiness? Can they find their way back to the shared passion of Dominance and submission? Or will their love and relationship end before it’s truly begun?
 
excerpt
 
 
Clay lay on the couch, his feet in Logan’s lap. It was a comfortable night. They’d just returned from dinner out with their co-worker, Q, and his wife, Cassie. Q had been a little quiet, but it had been nice to have dinner with the couple. Now they were relaxing before bed. The TV was on, but Clay wasn’t paying any attention to it. Instead, he focused on Logan, who absently rubbed Clay’s foot while they watched the ten o’clock news. He looked good as always, dressed in a lightweight, chocolate-brown sweater that complemented his dark blond hair and hazel eyes. His face was clean-shaven, his jawline hard. Logan looked exactly like what he was—a regimented and in control SWAT team sergeant for the Houston Police Department. When a commercial came on, Clay spoke up. “It’s good to be back home.”
 
Logan looked down at him with an eyebrow raised. “Home?”
 
Clay snorted a laugh. As usual, they were at Logan’s house. When he thought about it, he realized he hadn’t been back to his apartment in weeks. In fact, his bags from their recent trip to Colorado were here at Logan’s. He hadn’t bothered to take them back to his place after their return.
 
“If I’m in your space too much, I can throw all my stuff in the car and head back to my apartment,” he said as he pretended to pull away.
 
Logan tightened his grip on his foot. “You’re not going anywhere.”
 
Clay bit his lip to hold back a grin. “I didn’t think you wanted me to. But what I meant is, I feel good about life. That trip was awesome. I got to play in the snow, just like I wanted.”
 
“And I got to warm you up when you were done.”
 
“You did a very good job. You might have gotten me a little overheated a few times,” he teased. He wiggled his toes as Logan squeezed his foot again. “You and I are in a great place. And I think things are going to be better at work now too. We redid Hayden’s ridiculous course and passed with flying colors this time.”
 
“And you didn’t have any fights with Ryan afterward,” Logan said with a smile.
 
Clay rolled his eyes. “Ryan is cool people now. He wasn’t cool then.”
 
Logan gave him an admonishing look. “Still, you shouldn’t have started that fight. You knew better.”
 
“I know. But he pissed me off. And maybe it was good that we had that fight to get all of the animosity out of our systems.”
 
“Hmm. Maybe.”
 
“Anyway. I’m hoping the fact that we passed the redo means Hayden will get off our backs and quit fucking with our schedule.”
 
This time it was Logan who snorted a laugh, but he didn’t otherwise answer. Clay didn’t really expect him to. He was vocal in his dislike of their captain, but Logan wasn’t one to show disrespect for a superior. Hayden had been doing everything he could to piss them off the past couple of months. He hadn’t come out and said it, but Clay figured it was because he and Logan were out and a couple. The captain hadn’t had such a hard-on for making things difficult for their team before their announcement.
 
“So, you’re good with Ryan. The team is gelling again. And we’re hoping Hayden will finally move on and give up on his pet project of tormenting our team. Anything else?”
 
Clay shifted, looking at the TV instead of Logan. “What else is there?”
 
“Are you still blaming yourself for that idiot making those fake calls to our team?”
 
Clay pulled his feet off Logan’s lap for real this time and got up from the couch. “Why wouldn’t I blame myself? It was my fault.”
 
“It wasn’t your fault. And I don’t like hearing you say that it was.”
 
“C’mon, Sarge. You know that was on me.” Clay roughly ran a hand through his hair, turning his back on his lover. “If I hadn’t gone to that convention and went on camera bragging about how badass our team was, that whacko would have never taken it as a challenge to try and prove he was better than us.” He turned back around as Logan grabbed his hand and pulled him to stand in between his legs.
 
“Maybe not. But maybe he would have taken his anger out in another way.”
 
“What do you mean?”
 
“You read the report Roberts put together on the guy. He was looking for revenge because he felt he’d been slighted too many times. What if he’d decided to go on a shooting rampage at IR Media Gaming’s headquarters? What if he’d physically attacked the people he wanted revenge against? That teacher, the store manager, or your friend Ian? Someone or several someones could have been hurt. At least with the revenge tactics he chose, no one was. We managed to catch the idiot, and hopefully he’ll be granted some time to think about what he did.”
 
“Are you forgetting he tried to kill me?” Clay saw a muscle tic in Logan’s jaw at the question, his hazel eyes going hard before he answered.
 
“No, I’m not forgetting.”
 
Clay tilted his head to the side as he studied his lover. “You know, I noticed that the perp seemed a little worse for wear before you got him loaded in the patrol car.” Along with Ryan, Clay had been the last to leave the guy’s apartment. By the time he’d made it outside and down the stairs, he’d noticed Carlos, Logan’s best friend, standing at the corner of the building, looking like he was keeping watch. A few moments later, Logan had led the man from around the side of the apartment building. He hadn’t had any marks on him, but he’d been bent over, coughing as Logan walked him to the squad car. “Did you do anything to cause that?”
 
“I’ll never let anyone hurt you.”
 
Logan’s response was a non-answer, but it confirmed Clay’s suspicions. “I’m a cop. On occasion, I might get hurt. And you can’t go after people because of that.”
 
“And you’re mine. Did you forget that?”
 
Clay shook his head. “No, Sir.”
 
“Come here.” Clay followed the gentle pull Logan gave his hand to drop down to the couch and straddle his lap.
 
“You’re my lover. My submissive. It’s my right and my pleasure to protect you, always.” He brought a hand up, his thumb sliding across the metal collar that circled Clay’s neck. “I won’t let anything or anyone hurt you or take you away from me.”
 
A thrill shot through Clay at that declaration. Logan’s unapologetic possessiveness had caused problems early on in their relationship, but they’d worked on it and come to an understanding on boundaries. Now, he was able to revel in Logan’s possessiveness and caring, because he knew it wouldn’t get out of hand. Clay pressed his forehead to Logan’s and closed his eyes. “I love when you talk to me like that.”
 
Logan’s hand moved to grip the back of his neck. “Do you?”
 
His eyes still closed, Clay nodded.
 
“Tell me why.”
 
“Because it makes me feel like the most important thing in your world. I’ve never felt like that with anyone.”
 
“It’s true. You are the most important thing to me. Having you in my life, wearing my collar, means everything to me.”
 
Clay opened his eyes and looked into his lover’s gaze, seeing the sincerity there. Not that he doubted him. Logan had proven time and time again how much he loved him. “I don’t deserve you, Sir. And I don’t do enough to show you how much I love you in return.”
 
“You don’t have to do anything to deserve me. I’m with you because I don’t ever want to be with anyone else.”
 
“Well, maybe I can show you what I feel tonight. Physically.” He brought a hand up to rub the pad of muscle on Logan’s chest. “Let me serve you, Sir.”

Someone To Keep Me (Collars and Cuffs #3)
Someone To Keep Me (Collars and Cuffs #3) - Parker Williams ,K.C. Wells This made me tired. Exhausted in a way that was interesting. I am not a fan of "damsel in distress" motif as a constant. Though everything was realistic and the writing was superb, I was left in a place that has me questioning.

Heroes come in many forms. Collars and Cuffs is the Justice League of the BDSM world.

Dom of Ages (Collars and Cuffs Book 7)
Dom of Ages (Collars and Cuffs Book 7) - K.C. Wells,Parker Williams They did it again; there is apparently no limit to the awesomeness of this series.

Dom of Ages is every bit as amazing as the previous books yet still quite different. In this genre we see doms with younger (sometimes a lot younger) subs all the time. The other way around? Not so much. And this is the first time I have come across that constellation where it actually works.

Jarod has been floundering for years after the sudden loss of his long-time dom and partner. Having lost his foundation and his entire purpose he spends all his time alone in the house they shared unable to let go and move on.
He has made a few attempts at going to a club and try to meet someone but Jarod is fifty and it appears the BDSM scene he knew has changed quite a bit. At least it has in the club he used to be familiar with - and it is not a change for the better. His latest visit there - forced upon him by his mother! - threatens to end in a total fiasco as none of the other guests or member seem to have any idea what to do with a true submissive like Jarod. None except Eli who hasn't been to the club for quite some time and has decided to give it another try.

Recently Eli has watched his best friend Ben find happiness with Scott and has heard the stories of all the other people at Collars & Cuffs who have paired up and he desperately wants a boy of his own.
When he walks into the club and sees Jarod, he knows instantly he has found what he's been looking for. The age difference is not a problem for him and the commonly used 'boy' is quickly replaced by 'pet' which is perfectly fine by me.

So - the two meet up and everything is just laughter and rainbows after that. Well, no. Not quite.
Eli is so caught up in the thought of having what he always wanted he completely forgets his duties as a dom. Luckily he has Ben to give him a much needed butt kicking. And when the big drama happens (drama sounds so negative but it's the only way I can think of to describe 'things happening' without going into spoilerish details) Eli really starts getting his act together.

Ben manages to convince Eli to have a closer look at Collars & Cuffs and both Eli and Jarod are more than taken with the place and welcomed with open arms.
This is where the really warm and fuzzy feelings kick in. Jarod merges seamlessly into the group of subs we have come to know and love from the previous books and with the realization that he not only has a new dom but a group of friends who care for him, Jarod starts living again. The club once again stands out as the safe haven for anyone needing one and meeting everyone again is like coming home.

The icing-on-the-cake-prize in this book has to go to Jarod's mother. Gotta love her. Her no-nonsense attitude as well as her knowledge and acceptance of her son's lifestyle aree refreshing and highly entertaining.

Dom of Ages (Collars and Cuffs Book 7) - K.C. Wells,Parker Williams 2.5 stars

I feel sad. I loved the first book in this series so much that I’ve been trying to get that same feeling back when reading the other books. This book was my last hope. But it didn’t deliver.

The age thing was actually pretty well done, with Jarod being a 50 year old submissive and Eli a 30 year old Dom. I did like them together and the romance was sweet.

But I got more and more annoyed with the way the rest of the subs were acting. One of my main pet peeves is unrealistic bonding/friendship. If you’ve met someone once, you are not BFFs for life. That sort of thing takes time. But no, the subs meet Jarod, and BAM, he is their best friend.

”You’re more than our friend, Jarod. You’re like… well, like a surrogate father to some of us.”

And I had a feeling the writers kept forgetting the subs are men too, and not teenage girls. They actually have a slumber party…

“Hey, maybe we should organize our own slumber party!” Ben called out. “We could sit around and do each other’s nails and hair, and tell stories about the boys we like.” His suggestion was greeted by a chorus of guffaws and laughter.

These are the Doms talking about the slumber party the subs were having. These guys are grown men, of course they react that way to the suggestion of a slumber party. But it is totally okay for all the subs to like it. What are they, twelve?

I get what the writers were trying to accomplish. They wanted lonely Jarod to find a home, and a family. But this is not the way…

There were parts I really did like, but overall this book just annoyed me.
