What’s a sub to do when the Dom he wants looks dejected? Hank’s about to find out when he works up the nerve to approach Master Thomas.
Hank has watched and wanted Master Thomas for a long time. When Master Thomas’ sub leaves him looking dejected, Hank wants to take a chance. Fear holds him back until his friend prompts him to take action and be more forward than he’s ever been before.
Thomas isn’t broken-hearted, but his pride sure took a hit. He’s sitting in the club, doubting himself, as his ex-sub is acting more like a Dom than not.
Then a sub wearing white leather approaches Thomas with some goading from a friend. Thomas has noticed Hank before, but the timing was never right for them to connect—until now.
With one daring move by a sub who knows Doms are only human, the future suddenly looks brighter than Thomas had hoped it could be.
I don’t usually read a lot of BDSM books, but the blurb of Exchange by Bailey Bradford caught my attention and I was intrigued. At only 37 pages this is a very short book but it sure packs a lot in. The very first sentence of the blurb talks about a dejected Dom. Its such a nice change to see a Dom who isn’t happy and perfect.
Master Thomas has just ended a contract that left him feeling useless. Hank has lusted after him for a long time and can’t bear the proud, handsome man looking so unhappy. With the urging (a rather big shove) from a friend, Hank approaches Master Thomas.
The thing that I loved about this book was that they talked to each other. There was no presumption that Master Thomas just knew what was best for Hank. But throughout the discussion it was still very obvious that Master Thomas was in charge. The pair talk about all sorts of things and it is really nice to read.
The sex scene is also rather hot. It adds a lot to the story too, which is really great. It has a lot of intimacy, heat and exploration. And while it is a fairly typical scene for a BDSM book, it was engaging and well worth reading.
I am rather excited that there is a second book to this series coming out. I really enjoyed Exchange. It was a different and wonderful read.
