Kyle’s best friend Marshall resurfaces and he’s in a lot of trouble. Can the men at Kiss of Leather convince a former Dom to take on the mouthy sub?
Master Derek and his new sub Corey have signed a contract and enjoy their first scene together. The love between them is strong and Derek is as protective of his boy as ever. The only thing left that would make their world perfect would be to bring Corey’s ex-Dom and abuser to justice.
The legal firm that represents Kiss of Leather is charged with hiring a private investigator to flush out the man who orchestrated Corey’s gang rape. Stone Manning is hesitant to take the job, though. He was once wrongly accused in the death of a sub and swore never to enter a BDSM club again. But he owes attorney Glen Sharp his life after the lawyer got him acquitted.
Their meeting is disrupted when Kyle’s missing friend Marshall calls for help. Master Josh promises to help the mouthy Marshall get back on his feet under one condition: Marshall must sign a six month D/s contract as a fulltime sub and prove he can fully submit to a man as well as learn to respect those around him.
Stone Manning suddenly finds himself charged with taming the brattiest sub ever. In truth, the bigger the brat, the more his heart races with excitement. Marshall promises to be just the type of challenge to inspire Stone to be a Master again. As Stone learns more about him, he sees the pain that Marshall has always tried to numb with drugs and alcohol. Stone also sees a man he could love—if he can ever reach him.
In the meantime, Stone and his investigative partner, Chuck, continue to search for Corey’s attacker. The abusive Dom appears to have gone underground. But what they don’t realize is that the closer they get to their prey, the more dangerous he becomes.
I have read all of the books in this series so far, and will probably read it again between now and when the next book is released.
I am not a BDSM expert, nor have I been an avid reader in the genre. It hasn’t been until recently that I started reading more and more BDSM stories, and I have this series to thank for opening up that door to me.
Morticia Knight has put together a great family of characters here and I cannot wait for more about them. Each book builds on the others, so I would recommend reading them in order.
Now, I didn’t expect to like this book. I don’t like bratty characters who refuse to grow up and that is what I was expecting based on what I knew about Marshall from the previous books – that is not what I got and it was awesome. Marshall is a brat, but he also owns up to his mistakes, makes apologies to those who deserve it, and redeems himself so much.
I can’t say more without spoiling everything, especially if ya’ll plan to start at book one, which I recommend.
Bottom Line: Buy the whole series, clear a whole day and get reading.
