The men of Kiss of Leather celebrate a beginning, but will the price be another ending?
The grand opening of Kiss of Leather draws near and the pressure is on to make sure everything is completed in time. Master Josh is a perfectionist, so no detail is too small in order to enhance the quality of the prestigious club they’ve all worked so tirelessly on. Unfortunately, the endless demands on Josh’s time have caused him to forget the more important things in life.
David’s love for Master Josh is overpowering at times, but lately, that love has been constantly tested. How can a sub in a full-time D/s relationship serve a Master who’s never there? As things continue to deteriorate between him and Josh, David wonders if maybe his Master has tired of having to care for a sub full time.
By the time the grand opening arrives, Josh and David seem to have worked out their differences and David is hopeful for their future. The emotional collaring ceremony between Gavin and Kyle is a beautiful reminder of the power of love. But when an unexpected party crasher intrudes on the evening’s festivities, the men are reminded that there are still too many unanswered questions related to Corey’s kidnapping.
More than ever, the men of Kiss of Leather need to stand strong together. Will Josh and David be able to do the same?
This is book four in Knight’s Kiss of Leather series and it was an absolutely wonderful read. This story starts out as a continuation of Marshall and Stone’s story before moving to Josh and David’s. It all comes together rather nicely at the grand opening of Kiss of Leather. Marshall and Stone’s relationship progresses at a good pace. Even though there are still a few minor kinks (no pun intended here) to work out what with Marshall’s addiction issues and slight attitude problem, I feel that they’re in a really good place. Stone and Marshall complement each other and they’re just what the other needed to fulfill the needs for each other.
Gavin and Kyle’s relationship is being taken to the next level at the grand opening and I tell you the scene couldn’t be more touching. These two are by far my favorite—and well adjusted couple. Of all the Doms, Gavin is my favorite as he seems to be the more ‘together’ of the group. His Zen personality, class and refinement seems to ground the other two Doms as well as Kyle. He’s definitely the strong core or rock of the group.
Even though a bit of each couples’ stories are told, the book really focused on Josh and David’s relationship. Josh’s preoccupation with the last minute details of the club’s opening left David feeling neglected. Thanks to Gavin, Josh was able to see how he and David was drifting apart which put a bit of a strain on their relationship.
The ceremonies are underway, and of course there is a surprise twist that makes the story that much more exciting.
This book was as well written with great characters. I love the dialogue and the way the relationships these men have with each other. Her editing and storylines are always on point. This series is really worth getting into. I definitely recommend it.
