Publisher's Summary

It's Valentine's at the Spread Eagle leather club, but the only sub Jack's even spoken to belongs to his best friend, Marcus - and all Bret did was con him into taking a stupid bet. It is not going to be a good Valentine's night.
The moment Jack sees Ricky walking naked through the bar, he wants him. When Ricky kneels at his feet and offers him the keys to his restraints, it's obvious that his interest is returned. It might just be the best Valentine's Jack's ever had.... Ricky is sweet and eager to please and obviously new to leather. He's the kind of guy who actually makes Jack wonder if "something at first sight" might really be possible. But when it suddenly becomes apparent that everything is not what it seems, the only thing Jack knows for sure is that this Valentine's night is going to get very, very complicated.

What a spankingly lovely Valentine’s Day tale. A case of mistaken identity lands a newbie sub into the hands of the wrong (but really right) Dom at a club. Ricky is adoringly naive and submissive, but unfortunately he’s got the wrong ideas about what a Dom expects of him. Jack didn’t know he was looking for a sub until a stark naked Ricky kneels before him at the club.

There’s more, but that would involve a spoiler and I don’t do spoilers.

Many BDSM books often lapse into textbook mode in explaining the lifestyle. While this one did explain the lifestyle, it did it in such a way that I didn’t feel I was being lectured at. Another book that also did that well was Axel’s Pup by Kim Dare.

Although a second book in a two book series, I didn’t feel like I missed out on anything by not reading the first—which I’ll rectify soon enough!

This was short, and sweet, and pointed some dangers in BDSM in an extremely efficient and satisfying way. I listened to this and adored Joe Arden’s delectable English accent.

The sweetest, "Yes, sir."

3.85 story & overall
As the story started, I doubted that I was going to end up liking this tale. I didn't think I was going to hate it, but I hoped for it being bearable, at best. Surprisingly, I enjoyed this short BDSM-focused story, though I don't always get into BDSM. But this is BDSM where the dom has a heart, an interest or willingness of falling in love. And he truly exemplifies the care part of the dom-sub relationship. Enjoyably different BDSM M/M story where the focus is not on sex. There were 2 scenes of "play," with only one being the "full" act. The narrator did a perfect job.
