Summary:

Watching Marchant train his new sub leaves Tony unhappy at not having found a Dom of his own. Running Marchant’s BDSM club, Tony sees who the Doms prefer and it isn’t him—too big, too old, and too hairy. When his friend Jordan suggests he look outside the club, Tony’s mind turns to Leo, a man he met in a traffic jam. Tony manages to arrange a date and happily learns Leo is funny, very toppy, and not averse to Tony’s lifestyle. As a bonus, Leo sells sex toys.

When tragedy strikes the club, Tony fears he can’t help the mourning club members, but Leo offers his unwavering support. After such a tough start, Tony believes Leo is the Dom he’s been looking for… until he catches him kissing another man.

Story Review:

I really enjoyed Anthony and Leo’s story and it is definitely my favourite in the series.

A chance meeting in a traffic jam of all places brings Leo and Anthony together with a short hello and exchange of phone numbers.

Anthony, or Tony as we have come to know him, is the sub who everyone seems to overlook. He is big and hairy and works for Marchant behind the bar of the club. With everyone around him finding their partners he is feeling down and left out.

Leo isn’t into the BDSM lifestyle but in everyday life his persona screams dominant. Still living at home he works for his father selling sex toys. When Tony contacts him to go out for a drink he is very honest about his lifestyle and is pleased when Leo doesn’t go running for the hills.

There are blips and bumps along the way but it seems both these men are willing to try and give each other what they need. The thought of giving up his need for submission terrifies Tony but the thought of being alone is even scarier. Leo seems to have a good read on Tony from the start and thankfully is willing to try and step up to give the man he is quickly falling for whatever he needs.

It’s nice to catch up with old characters but the one that stands out most at the end of this story is Jordan. His life has just been turned upside down and I hope we see his story soon.

Narration Review:

I feel like I keep repeating myself but for me Max Lehnen just doesn’t work for this series.
