Read this book! No kidding, if you like male/male BDSM romance then you will definitely enjoy Commanding Acquistions by Christine d’Abo. And I’m not just saying this because she is a part of the Ellora’s Cave 1-800-DOM-help series along with me. My novella for this series is done, by the way, and is due to be sent to my editor once I integrate some of the feedback of my lovely critique partners.
But, back to the point. I’ve included the blurb below, but this novella does its job perfectly. It gives us two characters, intelligent, intriguing, sexy and enjoyable, places them at an important pivot point of their lives, drives the sexual heat high between them, and makes them face important decisions about taking the risk of relationship and coping with the fears that get in their way. Plus, the BDSM action is hot. I know I’ve enjoyed a story when I want to know more about the characters and wish they could come over for a dinner party. I felt this way about Simon and Gavin. So head on over to Ellora’s Cave and purchase yourself a copy. Definitely a two thumbs up.
Simon is a Dom who has become jaded, tired of the local scene. With his bookstore failing and personal life nonexistent, he’s looking for something different. The arrival of the mysterious 1-800-DOM-help business card gives Simon a chance for a change. The Operator directs him to Unfettered, a hot new BDSM club where Simon hopes to find a distraction for the evening. What he gets is a sexy sub offering himself up for a night of no-holds-barred sex, who then disappears with the dawn.
When the business consultant Simon hires turns out to be his mysterious sub, he knows he’s found a chance at happiness. But happiness comes at a price.
Safe, sane and consensual.
