Malcolm Tate hung up his flogger when his submissive sought out another Dom and landed in the hands of a serial killer. Convinced his lack of dominance sent his sub away, Mal has spent two years blaming himself for what happened. But when his best friend finally convinces him to go back to the local dungeon, Mal’s grateful. Especially when he wins beautiful, submissive, firmly closeted Kyle Bingham in a charity slave auction.

College grad Kyle hasn’t earned enough to move out of the loft his conservative, homophobic parents bought, much less to buy any of the other things still in their name. When he’s won at auction by the hot, amazing Mal, he’s shocked that anyone would want him. No one else seemed to—not his parents, his former Doms, or any of his disastrous dates.

But Mal does want him and Kyle lets his guard down, only to be outed to his parents. With his world crashing down, he must find a way to trust Mal—and their developing relationship—or risk losing everything.

Story Review:

I reviewed the ebook version of A Beautiful Boy only recently and when I read back over what I had written I could think of very little more to say. You can read that review here

I would add that if you enjoy a well written BDSM story then Grace Duncan is certainly an author you should try. A Beautiful Boy is a beautiful story – a story of second chances and finding your perfect partner that fits into all aspects of your life.

Narration Review:

I felt Joel Leslie narrated well in this one. BDSM can be difficult to narrate and often times can sound stilted but that wasn’t the case here. At just over 11 hours Joel was a pleasure to listen to.
