Publisher's Summary

Rejected. Heartbroken. Devastated.
Zack Davis wanted to serve only one man, Andrew Nikeman. He was denied because Andrew thought he was too young and because their brothers were together. So Zack crushed his submissive tendencies and focused on being the perfect Dom, giving every sub he played with something he couldn't have.
After years of denying his submissive side, Entwined's charity auction gives Zack an excuse to get a little of what he's always craved.
Andrew doesn't know when his infatuation turned into more, but it kills him to see Zack with a constant parade of submissives. He'd refused to jeopardize his brother's relationship or become Zack's regret; however, Zack isn't a kid anymore, and his brother's relationship is unbreakable. Now Zack's popularity and success as a Dom might ruin Andrew's dreams of collaring him, but he can't wait any longer to confess his feelings or he risks losing the man he loves forever.

awesome narration of an awesome book!

Any additional comments?

Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted the AUDIO file of this book.

I usually write about the book, then the narration but I'm finding more and more, doing it the other way round or being unable to split the two.

I cannot split the two here.

I LOVED this!! It is both the first of Z. Allora (author) and Jonathan Waters (narrator) I have listened to and together they make for compelling listening!

Zack wanted to be seen by Andrew. His first thought when they meet was "His. Serve. Kneel" (more on this little bit in a mo) But Andrew thinks Zack is too young, and being not quite 18, he is still. When Andrew denies Zack what he needs, Zack hides his submission, and becomes the perfect Dom. A charity auction gives Andrew the opportunity to show Zack that somewhere along the line, his feelings grew to something he can no longer fight.

Waters narration is, quite possibly, the best I've listened to for quite some time. His portrayal of Zack, as he grows, as he learns his craft, as he constantly fights his feeling for Drew, is stunning. Zack has these one liner thoughts "His. Serve. Kneel" and at first, I found them annoying, BUT!!! once I got over that, I did actually look forward to not knowing when they would pop up.

Andrew, too, has these, but they aren't as common as Zack's and, are very different. Waters voice for Drew is perfect.

I loved all Water's voices for the various characters, and it made for very easy listening in multi person conversations. His reading voice is clear and deep and even, with a hint of an accent I could not put my finger on from where.

I loved the way Allora spins a tale. This is, I think, the first in a series, and there are a couple of characters who piqued my interest. And I'm also intrigued by the guys in the band that Zack and Andrew's brothers play in. I want to read their stories too!

Putting both Allora and Waters firmly on my wish lists....

5 stars for the book

New Finds

This is the first work I've read/listened to by both Jonathan Waters and Z. Allora and it is a happy discovery day for me on both.

This story is full of such beautiful love and heat it makes me smile just thinking about it.

It's a BDSM story, but offers a seldom seen look behind the chains to the issues faced by members of this society and the dangers they can sometimes face, what it truly means to submit and what a beautiful kind of strength that can take but also shows the heart of a master who so lovingly cares for his sub. It's awesome really. But it's also just a story about love. Finding it, losing it, regaining it, keeping it and so importantly celebrating it. I'm so on board with team Zach and Drew and because of them I've discovered that there are other lovely stories about these men and I will be adding them to my library :) SCORE!
