Blindfolds. Handcuffs. Submission.
There’s so much Jonah Kendrick hasn’t tried, and so much he wants to explore. But just before Christmas he finds a ring box in his boyfriend’s desk. Jonah panics. He loves Evan and their sex is hot, but how can Jonah be ready for forever, when there are so many items on his Naughty Bucket List? Desires that might drive Evan away.
Evan’s noticed Jonah has been distant. His usually talkative and cheerful boyfriend is preoccupied. The seemingly straitlaced Evan stumbles across Jonah’s wish list of sexual kinks, and Evan realizes he may not have to hide his true nature from Jonah after all. The Dom in him wants to see Jonah on his knees, begging, submitting, but Evan isn’t sure Jonah’s ready to accept what being Evan’s sub would mean.
The two lovers must figure out how to share their hidden desires with each other before their secrets permanently damage their love.
Wish List has two aspects I normally avoid—BDSM and holidays. Leave it to K.A. Mitchell to write a story with both that I enjoyed.
The main characters are Jonah and Evan who have been in a relationship for a while. Things are good until Christmas time when Jonah comes across rings and assumes Evan is going to propose. He suddenly starts overthinking things and considers everything he hasn’t done in his life and still wants to try. Some of those things include BDSM activities such as blindfolds, handcuffs and submission.
Evan is surprised when he comes across the list of things his lover wants to try. He’s normally rather down-to-Earth but he loves the idea of doing these activities with Jonah. The forceful sex Jonah and Evan have is absolutely smoking hot.
My only annoyance with the story is that all the problems could’ve been fixed if they had just spoken to each other. Jonah should’ve been adult enough to tell Evan he found the rings and about what he wanted to try. Of course if that had happened there wouldn’t have been a story here.
This was well written with likable characters. The BDSM was light and I’d recommend it for both fans of BDSM and readers who don’t normally like it.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
