Sean Bradley is a gay man who’s old fashion. He hates the meat market atmosphere of the gay club scene where he feels sized up and judge. He wants to get to know someone before intimacy. Sean’s friend thinks he just needs to step out of his comfort zone and try something different. An invitation to an exclusive private members clubs is just what his friend thinks he needs. The gauntlet thrown, Sean accepts the invitation and enters a world of wealth and decadence. The BDSM atmosphere is exciting and heady striking a chord within Sean that he easily succumbs to. Sean is immediately bowled over by the attention of the club’s owner Dante Capello who introduces him to a world of emotion, dominance and sexuality he’s never experienced. Sean wants more of these experiences and with Dante; but that’s not part of the deal. Dante lives his life without commitment to anyone. A weekend together is all Sean is promised. At the end of 3 days, Sean must walk away; but can he?
HIS is not a story of love at first sight though it could have easily slipped into that familiar plot line. It’s more a story of a young man’s recognition and acceptance of his submissive nature and going for it in the arms of a Dom who touches him in more ways than one. There’s an exquisite dance between a Dom and a submissive that satisfies both parties and the author does a good job of choreographing that dance. I liked how Ms. Coldwell let the reader to know what Sean was thinking step by step. Initially overwhelmed by the seduction and on an emotional and sexual high, he soon begins to question and analyze his treatment by Dante and his response which leads him to a decision and subsequent action. I think Ms. Coldwell gave an accurate portrayal of the Dom and sub dynamic and less I forget the sex in this novel was sizzling and frequent. I wish HIS was a little longer because I really enjoyed both characters. This is my first story from Ms. Coldwell. I’m looking forward to reading more.
