Don’t judge a book by its cover….

At over six feet, with a body honed in the gym, auto worker Donavan Gregory is used to people assuming he’s a dominant top. Unfortunately, they’re wrong, and Donavan’s desire to explore his submissive side goes unfulfilled.

Smaller and older than Donavan, Doctor Seth Manning might not look like a typical dominant, but when the two men meet at Pride, Donavan realized Seth might be his perfect counterpart. The trouble is, Donavan doesn’t have as much experience with the BDSM world as he’d like. What could an educated, handsome, and confident man like Seth possibly see in someone like him? Seth must convince him that despite the differences on the surface, when it comes to kinky fun and discovery, they’ll fit together just fine.


This was sugary sweet fluff. I keep referring to it as BDSM Lite!!! It’s not a bad thing, it was the opposite of what I was expecting that’s all. Super sweet, low angst, feel good story. Nothing here to complain about folks just keep it pushing!

Sure we got the vice versus switch of the mc physical stands on BDSM. We have Donovan who from all appearances looks like a top, a Dom and wouldn’t have a submissive bone in his body. This is where looks clearly are deceiving folks. He’s craving to submit to someone but clearly scared. A golden opportunity is given to him at Pride one day. There he meets Seth. At first glance Seth doesn’t look the part of what Donovan things a Dom should.

From here on it it’s smooth sailing for the couple. It’s no miscommunication, and they clearly speak about what they both want and feel for each other. I didn’t think it was BDSM. It’s basically sex but rougher then what some would want. I think that aspect could been dismissed from the tags and it’s just a contemporary story.

I don’t think I know Seth that well as a character as Donovan. We have multiple interactions with Donovan at his job and with his friend, and in his head alot. I kinda labelled Seth as coming off mysterious because outside of what he says about his family and friends we only see him.

This is a pretty straight forward sugary sweet mess. The end features cast from upcoming books I’m sure. We’ll see more of these guys I’m sure. If you are in the mood for a low angst, fluffy book then this is right for you!
