Publisher's Summary

Six years ago, Ellis walked into his first briefing as the newest member of London's specialist firearms unit. He was partnered with Wayne, and they became fast friends. When Wayne begins to notice changes - Ellis’s erratic temper, the effects of sleep deprivation - he knows he has to act before Ellis reaches his breaking point.
He invites Ellis to the opening of the new BDSM club, Secrets, where Wayne has a membership. His purpose? He wants Ellis to glimpse the lifestyle before Wayne approaches him with a proposition. He wants to take Ellis in hand, to control his life because he wants his friend back, and he figures this is the only way to do it.
There are a few issues, however. Ellis is straight. Stubborn. And sexy. Wayne knows he has to put his own feelings aside to be what Ellis needs. What surprises the hell out of him is finding out what Ellis actually requires.

Even the strong need help at times.

Before You Break is the first book in the new Secrets series. It is a spin-off from Collars and Cuffs but you can easily pick up this series first.

Wayne and Ellis have been best friends and partners at work n the special forces unit since Ellis walked in. Wayne has a few secrets though, only one of which he wishes that Ellis was more than his work partner. When he notices Ellis is moody, rundown and his health is slipping He shows his friend the other side of him and offers to take him in hand to help him. Ellis s taken aback and revolts at first.

I loved seeing Jarod and Eli again. I have been waiting a long time for this book.K.C. wells and Parker Williams has done a great job building the new setting, blending the new characters and plots together.I loved that Ellis fought his attraction at first, and the need to submit was a slow build. I also loved that he was a power bottom and not meek. Not often do you see a big strapping man as the submissive and I liked that in this book.I didn't see the twist at the end coming and was pleasantly surprised. I can't wait to see who the next couple will be.

If you like BDSM, Ds relationships, friends to lovers, coworker relationships and some very hot man-sex you will love this one!

I loved this book but liked the audio even better. Joel Leslie does an exceptional job giving these men voice and bringing out the emotion of the story. I loved the English accents and strong voice. I could listen all day while doing chores.

All the Stars

I have been waiting a long time for this book. K C Wells is a favorite of mine and I rub my hands with glee waiting for the audio. I had almost given up hoping that the Secrets series would make it because the second e book has been out for some time. I am forever glad I did not give in, due to the fact that I also love this narrator. Please hurry up with the next one. I really don't want to wait.
