Throughout high school, his successful career in the Marines, and as a BDSM Dom, he’s remained confident his partner is out there waiting to be found.

However, several events shake his normally unflappable self–assurance.

And, even after he finds Grif, will his past catch up with him and possibly drive his soul mate away?

REVIEW:

Hot, haunting, and heartbreaking. Wes’ Denial starts out with Grif and Wes on the rocks, but Wes refuses to give in because he knows Grif is worth fighting for. Then, through a series of flash backs we get a glimpse into Wes’ troubled introduction into the world of BDSM. He first comes to understand some of his dark desires as a teen and then while in Marine Corp boot camp. Though he doesn’t judge himself for it at first, he fears what is inside him and what he’s capable of doing.

Some of these scenes were a bit difficult to read. Though I loved Wes in Grif’s Toy, I did sense a glimpse of something dark and scary in him. There was one point that I almost wondered if Grif was in the hands of a monster. As it turns out, Wes is not so scary, but he definitely has some dark and painful experiences. Seeing this side of Wes made me wonder how the heck he could be truly intimate with Grif while hiding such secrets. At the same time, I was drawn to the erotic scenes in this book. Aside from the steaming hot scenes with Wes and Grif in chocolate, I was fascinated by some of Wes’ past hook ups. For example: Wes’ straight friend in high school who fantasized about a woman making him submit to men was just awesome. Plus, there was also a scene with Wes’ dom trainer, Thomas, that was so hot that it kept playing over and over in my mind. Then, by the end of the book, I was in tears. It was quit unexpected, but I couldn’t ask for a more perfect ending. Overall; amazing, spectacular, and I want more! I recommend this book to anyone who loves M/M dark erotica and M/M romance.

RATING: Loved it!

Grif believes he’ll live his life as a virgin. After all, who would want him? How could anyone find him, a guy who came with less than man-sized equipment, worthy of their love?

What he hadn’t counted on were the two amazing men who would change his life. After entering college, he meets Tate, his fun-loving, wealthy roommate. While years later, with Tate now just a memory, Wes, a handsome, rugged ex-marine who runs his own security firm enters his life.

Both men force him to see his value, despite his size and insecurities.

REVIEW:

Holly crap, this was beautiful! I loved every page. The book began with a glimpse of Grif and Wes together. They are playing a D/s game that involves humiliation and edging, and though it seems like Wes is being sadistic, both of them completely love what they are doing. Wes is in love with Grif’s tears and nothing turns Grif on more than suffering for Wes. The book goes on to show Grif’s college years and his first love, Tate, who’s a straight guy. Grif’s relationship with Tate is really quite fascinating; one that takes cock worship to a whole new level.

Though the book jumped forward and backward in time, I never felt disoriented or lost. It seemed like the natural way to present Grif’s story. Grif’s character was amazing. I loved him so much. I felt his pain and also experienced the beauty of his submission. It has been a while since I’ve read a book with such a vulnerable submissive and such tender D/s scenes. Tate and Wes were also exceptional. Everything about this book was steaming hot. I really cannot wait for book #2. I feel teased and denied just having to wait for it to come out. I recommend this book to anyone who loves Dark Erotica, high quality BDSM, and M/M Romance.

RATING: Absolutely crazy about it!
