In a variation of the "friends to lovers" theme, in this story it is two friends who are both Doms who discover they not only love each other, but one of them is not as much a Dom as he's been telling himself. With some clever cyberspace subterfuge, Darren manages to get Alex to open up about himself – which is sometimes a lot easier to do with a stranger than with a friend. Thing is: once that door is open, there is no going back – for either of them!

Alex is extremely attracted to Darren, and has been for quite some time. For once, it isn't fear of losing the friendship that makes him shut up, it is fear of submitting again. Alex has been through one abusive relationship already, and he cannot see himself do it again. The problem is that Darren seems pretty much irresistible to him…

Darren is aware of Alex's past (to a point), but senses that his friend yearns to submit to him. Not knowing what else to do he decides to use the Internet, his friend and helper, to get Alex to open up. Online submission may not be the same, but he figures at least Alex will feel safe. His plan works a little to well…

If you like friends becoming more despite their reservations, if you enjoy reading stories about men who know exactly what they want – irrespective of whether they are a sub or a Dom, and if you're looking for a read that is as hot as the cover of this book implies, then you will probably like this short story.
