Publisher's Summary

Eric knows what he needs...he just doesn't think anyone else will want it, too.
He's finally reached his breaking point. There's only so many times he can put himself out there and get shot down. After a disastrous first date at a BDSM club, Eric is ready to walk away and push his desires to the furthest reaches of his mind - but then up walks Marcus. But just because the sexy older man is looking for a submissive doesn't mean he's looking to be someone's daddy.
Marcus knows what he wants, and he's spent months getting everything perfect for his boy...now he just needs to find him.
When Marcus sees Eric at Bound & Controlled, he's immediately drawn to the sweet submissive who's desperately trying to hide his devastation. Marcus steps in when he sees the sub's evening going wrong, but he's not sure what the shy submissive is looking for. Just because he wants the boy to need a daddy doesn't mean he's going to get what he hopes for.
As they discover their mutual desires, Marcus is sure that Eric has the strength to go after what he yearns for; he just needs his daddy's help and love to see it.

It's good to know your hard limits

Brutally honest review: I had to use my safe word and tap out on this one part way through. Here's the thing, I am completely aware that MA Innes books are taboo, boundary-pushing kink stories. I was curious enough (and a big fan of the Shaw Montgomery books) to give this one a try. Unfortunately I discovered that age play may just be a bit too much for me, and particularly when listening to it, because the story just feels so much more immediate and visceral when it's being narrated. I think it was a very compassionate story, told with care and respect. Kenneth Obi did a great narration. In spite of the fact that I couldn't finish it, I'm still happy to give it a good rating. Sometimes it's just good to test your own personal boundaries and perfectly okay to admit when something just isn't for you. If taboo romance and age play are your thing, definitely check this out.

Another amazing book

Once again an amazing book loved every aspect. Fell in love with Eric and Marcus. Listening to Kenneth Obi's narration brought the story to life (love his breathy voice when he uses it in all the right spots). Can's wait to see where M.A. takes us in the second one.

Brilliant story and excellent narration

I really enjoyed this book as m.a.innes has really thought through this story, which is evident by the fact that rather rushing the story she has chosen to tell it over two books. This gives us readers the chance to really see the development of the relationship between Eric and his daddy Marcus.

Kenneth obi has chosen the perfect voices for both characters, and allowed the listener to lean back and listen to a great story. I have listened to this a number of times awaiting the next book in this series.

A wonderful story of accepting yourself

A great book from M.A. Innes.
This is my first book that delves so fully into the Daddy/Boy relationship.
I definitely enjoyed it and it gave me different aspects to a world that I'm unfamiliar with.
Eric is a silently strong character who has to learn to love and accept what he wants and that someone else will love him just the way he is.
Marcus is someone who desperately wants to find his boy and by some miracle, comes across him at the club he frequents. However, getting Eric to accept them and their wants may be the hardest thing he's worked for.
The characters are well written. The world that they belong to and the friends that are a part of it provide support and companionship in times where it's extremely important.
I love the affection that they show for each other, how quickly it comes about as it seems important for Eric to know that his needs are ok, great even, when it comes to Marcus and their inner circle of friends.
It's only 4 stars for me as I wasn't too keen once we got into the more in depth character aspects once they settled into their Daddy and Boy roles but that's just my own feelings on that.
Kenneth Obi does a wonderful job of narrating this book. I enjoyed his personalisation for each MC, both for their inner monologue and their speech. He conveys feelings very well and drew me into the story of the two characters.
I'd definitely recommend to those who love a bit of Daddy kink, fans of M.A. Innes and fans of Kenneth as it's brilliant work from both of them.
I received a copy of this book and am happily giving a review
