With a wedge at last driven between Mat and Dougie Carmichael, courtesy of Nikolai Petrovic’s expert manipulations, the brothers must each accept their new path forward: Dougie, a perfect slave, sweet and obedient and loving. Mat, a tightly reined dog, snarling and snapping but never allowed to bite.
Unfortunately, no transformation, however well planned, is without its growing pains. Mat’s leash is so tight it’s choking him. Dougie is tormented by a little voice inside his head—a fragment of his former self—that he cannot silence.
And Nikolai’s most difficult tests for the brothers are still to come.
The critical question isn’t whether they can pass those tests, but whether they even want to. Without each other to lean on and live for, a bleak future has become bleaker still. But Nikolai’s too good to let his slaves slip through his fingers—by death or by despair.
A noose, a nighttime sky, a shared lover, an unexpected friend. A foreboding forest cabin. A lavish party with all the debauchery Nikolai’s clientele could want. It’s all coming in season 3 of the Flesh Cartel.

This has made me rather pensive. And it's actually very alluring, you know? It sucks you in and makes that little part of you afraid of the ambiguity of life yearn for the kind of security that Roger and Dougie and Mat seem to have/gain.I'D LIKE TO SAY THAT THE COVER IS GORGEOUS.
Well first off, I think readers might be losing sight of what this series is. It's NOT romance, it's NOT erotica, it's a mind-fucking psycho-sexual story. For either - never mind both - Mat and Dougie to emerge from this as anything approaching who they were at the beginning would be a fairy tale ...
Torture - check; killing with kindness - check; non-stop mind manipulations - full speed ahead. Roger steps in now to console Dougie and offer clarity of his situation. It was very sad to see Dougie giving in and actually seeing himself wanting to please and serve Nikolai, as opposed to just doing...
