Official Blurb: Dominating a powerful man isn’t easy…
Sometimes corporal punishment is needed
Kade Thompson is sick and tired of working sixty-plus hours a week. After all, he’s only an accountant, not a surgeon. For many he’s considered powerful and a sought-after catch, yet he hasn’t obtained all he hungers for. However, earning a six-figure income has allowed him to indulge in his every desire, including toys and rather kinky bouts of sin. He also enjoys an on-again, off-again push-and-shove relationship with his boss, Trevor Willis. While the sex is passionate, he craves being dominated by the six foot six god, but Trevor doesn’t seem interested. Tired of playing games, he’s ready to break off their relationship until an invitation to meet for a drink at The Peeping Hole-a mysterious and very exclusive club-has him more than curious.
When he finds out the club offers every aspect of kink, he’s breathless with excitement. As Kade waits for Trevor’s arrival, he’s given an offer he can’t refuse and one that might sate his every craving-if he will submit to the man behind the mask. Unfortunately what goes on behind the hallowed doors is required to stay a sensuous mystery. But can they keep up their end of the bargain and one forged in a touch of black magic? Only Alexander knows. Ssshhh… No peeping.
I am Alexander-a teacher, a scoundrel, a voyeur and a true entrepreneur. In my world there’s little left to the imagination. That is if you dare to taste what only I can offer. Welcome to The Peeping Hole, where every fantasy you’ve ever desired will come true. Leave your inhibitions at the door and join us. But you must remember, whatever happens here stays here, and trust me, I will know…
I expected a lot from this one. Such a scathingly hot blurb! Unfortunately, it fell short of my expectations.
Kade sounds like an awesome guy with a hot relationship with Trevor that just needs a little more kink. But actually, Kade wants more of a connection.... and he gets more kink? And even then, only sort of. Trevor never makes it clear to Kade that he wants to play his little sub games, but then tells him that’s he’s been training to be his master all along! Not very promising, I think. And then it had seemed that Kade just wanted to enjoy being a sub, but instead is being setup to be Travor’s slave?! You know it could have started getting good and hot there, with a touch of dub con. But again, nothing nearly so interesting. Kade has to be trained by a stranger, who really seems like he’s just playing with him, not training. Then before you know it, it’s over, and a bit forgettable.
