Title: Trick (Masters Boys #1)

Author: Patricia Logan

Publisher: Westburg Publishing

My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

From the Publisher:

Wade is a throwaway, forced into prostitution at fourteen and living on the mean streets of Los Angeles. Nearly four years later, and now calling himself Trick, he’s still struggling to survive. While huddled in a doorway on a cold rainy morning, he thanks his lucky stars when an expensive Mercedes pulls up and rolls down a window.

Phoenix, known as Master P, may be a big intimidating Dom, but he has a soft spot for vulnerable young men. When he sees a homeless kid trembling in the cold, he has to stop and pick him up. What he finds is a boy with a naturally submissive nature and a damaged soul. As he begins to train the boy at the online BDSM club where he’s employed, DOMZ.com, they form a fast and explosive combination.

When Trick begins to fall for his big Dom, Phoenix is forced to tell him that this is only play. The resulting fallout will shake Phoenix to his very core. Is this chance encounter doomed for failure or can the two men find a balance?

My View

This book is set back in DOMZ.com which I just read about in Silver Ties.

When Wades parents found out he was gay at the tender age of 14 they threw him out on the street with 10 dollars in his pocket. For the last four years he has lived on the streets and turned to prostitution to survive……and really he is only just surviving.

When Phoenix told his parents he was gay they were fine about it.  When he tried to explain his involvement in the BDSM lifestyle he was told to go and not bring embarrassment on his family. He is now a very popular Dom at DOMZ.com and known to the online community as Master P.

When he spies Wade in a shop front one morning on his way to work something about the desperation in his eyes calls to him and he makes the impulsive decision to pull over and offer the boy a hot meal.

One meal turns to two which turns to a hot shower and new clothes and before he realises it Phoenix can’t bear the thought of sending this beautiful young man back to his life on the streets.

He comes up with an idea for a job and once the owner Zach, who we meet in Silver Ties, has agreed he puts forward his daring proposition to Wade. Nobody has been kind to Wade in such a long time that he is instantly suspicious but agrees without hesitation in the hope that he can keep a roof over his head and food in his stomach.

As Wade starts out on his training Phoenix becomes more attracted and attached to the young man but we don’t really get a HEA of even a HFN at the end of the book.  I am hoping that we find out what happens with the two of them later on in the series 🙂
