The line between kinky sex and actual D/s may be clear in theory, and most people would know where they fall, but admitting your needs to yourself and actually going through asking someone else to help you fulfill them are two separate concepts. This story deals with two men who embark on a journey that requires a level of trust beyond that of most relationships.

Tom is the younger of the two, he initiates the ‘kinkier play’, and yet he worries that it will be too much for his lover of two years. He loves Isaac so much that he would rather forget about this newly discovered side of him than make Isaac unhappy. On the other hand, he is just young and pushy enough to persevere – as long as he doesn’t get a loud and clear ‘stop’.

Isaac is the one who is the more surprised of the two. He starts out doing more kinky things for Tom’s sake, but as he discovers his dominant side, it scares him. Not just because he might really hurt Tom, which is the last thing he wants to do, but also because it says something about who he is that he isn’t sure he likes. The one thing he is sure about is how much he likes doing the things to Tom his lover asks for.

I liked the way this book sketches the beginning of a road to a sub/Dom relationship. One that is born form love and mutual trust, and with both parties only just discovering who they are. Yes, the stuff they get up to is very hot, but the emotional and psychological undercurrents are at least as powerful. If you like love stories with a touch of kink that grows into more, if you enjoy reading about the variations of a D/s relationship, and if you believe it is possible to discover new aspects of your personality at any age, you will probably enjoy this story.
