Blurb:

How much can a Dom ask of his submissive? And how much of himself?

For Derek and Tyler, Dominance and submission have been part of their love right from the first hello. But now Derek wants his submissive to go as deep as he is physically and emotionally able to. During two days and two nights, there are no safety words and very few limits. This is their chance to demonstrate their love for one another through the most extreme scenes they’ve ever played.

There is, however, one rule to trump all others for Tyler—to protect Sir’s most loved possession, even if it means disobedience or going against his own need to submit to his Master without question or complaint.

This weekend will open up levels of their relationship they’ve never dreamed of before.

Caroline’s View:

This book didn’t entirely work for me and I think the initial problem was the speed of the relationship. Tyler and Derek meet for the first time at a Rugby match. They have their first proper conversation in the showers after the match, which is basically a pick up line, and then go home together. That is the only precursor of their relationship until one year later when they are going to have a deep weekend of Dominance and Submission.

You are left with no idea about how much experience either man has with a D/s relationship just that they are going to spend the an intense weekend without limits or safe words. This was a weekend of TPE but the conversation leading up to it seemed awkward and cold and Derek as a Dom seemed way out of his depth and comfort zone. The stilted and sometimes prolonged conversation made it difficult to feel a proper connection between the two men, they almost felt like strangers to each other.

I wanted to feel Derek’s confidence as a Dom but he spends time questioning himself and worrying about whether he is going too far. The fact that most of Derek’s experience comes from searching the internet is also worrying.

There is no doubt the author can craft a great sex scene. The weekend was varied and hot and all about pushing Tyler’s limits. He finally achieves sub space on the last day but again if they had been playing for a year previously and embarked on such a weekend I would have assumed this would not be the first time.

I think with more character development especially in regard to the D/s side of their relationship I would have been able to make more of a connection with the characters and it would have felt more comfortable and realistic.
