Devon West is a professional Dom who runs his own club, doesn't believe in romance, and has never been in a long-term relationship. All this changes when he rescues Chase Mackenzie.
Chase is a runaway who has been kept as a slave since he was 16. Now 23, he's still innocent and sweet despite being severely abused and left behind by his Dom.
When Devon finds out that the man who held Chase hostage is the same man who hurt him terribly when he started learning about the sub/Dom lifestyle, he knows he has to keep Chase safe.
Spoiled rich boy and sociopath James Kingston is obsessed with Devon. He's convinced Devon would be his perfect sub and Devon only thinks he's a Dom because he needs proper discipline. Losing Chase to Devon is like rubbing salt in the wound, and he's determined to get them both under his thumb. This time, Chase may need to rescue Devon.

A tender BDSM romance
Loving, suspenseful, sexy
I liked how Devon took over Chase to keep him safe and they bonded. I can see Devon's sense of responsibility and Chase feeling attached to him.I can get how they could easily fall in love.It is sort of like a knight rescuing a damsel (guy) in distress and protecting him from the evil.
Where Devon talks to Chase's parents. (can't say more it would be spoilers)
I can't say I had an extreme reaction but I did enjoy it and it kept me engaged.
Chase ran away from home at the age of 16 afraid his parents wouldn't accept he was gay and not wanting to disappoint them or embarrass them in tier church and community. A man (James Kingston) picks him up offering a warm bed, roof over his house food and clothing. James told him he contacted his parents and they wanted nothing to do with Chase. James kept Chase hostage, beating him, depriving him of food and abusing him. Chase thought this was what a sub was sposed to be like.
Devon comes to work at his BDS club one night to one of his doms beating the crap out of a young sub while is master did nothing. Devon and security stop it fired the dom and took the sub into his care. Devon told Chase he could stay with him and they would protect him from Kinston. Devon and his group devised a plan to do so.
I liked the story. I listened to it in two days time. I liked the characters and the plot of the story. I always like some suspense thrown in and the reasons why Devon didn't like Kinston helped make the story more than just a BDSM romance. my only issue was that the story had the feel of being a part of a series and we missed all the background on Devon: how and why he started the club and why his friends are so protective. I would have liked more background on Devon.
I felt the BDSM in this story is only of the safe, sane and consensual kind– more pleasure than pain and fairly mild. Though what Kingston did to Chase falls squarely in the unsafe, insane and dubious consent camp and that was all off the page.
If you like a fast-paced story, close-knit characters, hot Doms or Master sexy subs and a charming romance this is for you.
one of the best book's everrr
