Book Review

This is a really cute story about a BDSM novice who jumps in the deep end and an experienced Dom who cannot wait  to show him how much fun it can be to hand over control. Even better: they spend at least a little time getting to know each other, which gave me the feeling there might be more than just dungeon activities (so to speak). It was a nice touch and made me like the story even more!


Jeff gives himself a somewhat unusual birthday gift: a visit to a BDSM Club. He's been curious for a while, has done some reading, but as soon as he enters he knows that he really doesn't have a clue. On top of which he is a bit of a dork, so he almost walks out before anything can happen. Luckily, David is there to stop him. Jeff's responses to David's questions were adorable, and his initial reactions to what David does to him were so innocent and yet totally hot!


David is a wonderful guy. He is patient, lets Jeff tell him what he needs, and introduces him to exactly what he aske for: being restrained and getting a spanking. He makes sure Jeff enjoys this kinky part as much as what comes after. His first objective is Jeff's safety and enjoyment – because he knows that will give him what he needs as well.


If you like stories about "first times", enjoy a bit of kink with your man-on-man action, and if you're looking for a "beginners BDSM story", give this one a try. I really liked it.
