All Adam Kern was looking for when his best friend dragged him to the club Harte was some good dancing and a little flirting to distract him from his troubles. He never anticipated meeting the club owner, Jesse Harte, and having a whole new world of experiences laid open before him. On an impulse, Adam follows Jesse to the upper, kinkier floors of the club where an informative tour ends in a steamy scene that both men are looking forward to repeating. The attraction between the two is scorching and over the next few weeks their adventures into kinky sex are nothing short of daring.
Adam loves the thrill of sex with Jesse but soon a gnawing fear sows doubt into his mind about the possibility of a relationship with the other man. Though he loves every moment he spends with Jesse, he fears what these sexual explorations may mean for him. Jesse is successful, an entrepreneur and a well-known Dominant in the BDSM community but Adam cannot see himself as a submissive. What sort of future could they have if he is unable to give his lover what he needs?
We met Jesse in the previous book as Dillon’s friend and owner of the dance/BDSM club. Adam isn’t much into the club scene, but things look up when he meets Jesse after his friend drags him out for a night on the town. Adam and Jesse share an instant connection/lust, though Adam has no idea who Jesse actually is.
While Adam is curious and is fairly easily convinced to check things out upstairs at the BDSM club, he makes it apparent very quickly that he is not into the scene, is adamant he is not a submissive and has no intention of kneeling for anyone. This would seem to be a bit of a problem since Jesse is pretty big into the scene, as a well known dominant, as well as the owner of the club.
They hit some bumps, but feelings trump the BDSM after Jesse realizes he wants Adam any way he can get him, even if it means giving up at aspect of the relationship. For some reason, I didn’t quite feel the connection with these two as I did with Dillon and Michael, and it was great to see them again and doing well.
I found this story line to be a nice change of pace though, with having to deal with each character being into different levels of kink. While it didn’t knock my socks off, it was still enjoyable and interesting enough to keep me invested in the series.
