I was given this ARC for an honest review of the book.
In this story we meet Cameron Beck, his submissive Noah, Lou and his submissive Stephen at a hotel in San Fransisco. They were supposed to be at some sort of BDSM workshop with a competition.
I did not get the feeling of what was coming at all, because I thought we would see more of the competition itself. It was placed there to distract me for a while. I felt a bit disappointed when I discovered it was not a major part of the story.
The major part of the story takes place around Cameron and how he strives to be the Dom Noah needs. Cameron and Lou, the other Dom in this story, has a past together, and Lou has still feelings for Cameron. Cameron is not sure of his own feelings towards his x-Dom/lover.
Noah sees his Dom struggling to find himself on the right path in his life. Noah is a little pushy, but we never got to see him getting punished for it.
Stephen the other submissive, gives Noah a pep talk when they are at a nearby cafeteria off for some freetime, while their Doms works out their issues at the hotel.
At one point Noah is not sure if Cameron is the right Dom for him because he wants what Lou and Stephen has. It's here it starts to get interesting. In my head I had a path, but when reading , I saw another path coming for them all.
When I was done with this book, I was having more questions than answers. I am not saying it is bad, but there is things here that could have been done better. I got a bit confused of the authors use of whose point of view we were having. Sometimes I was not sure if it was the narrators or one of the characters view. I had to doubleread some of the paragraphs to get the feel of it.
All in all I'll give this story a 3 star because it has a synopsis that is intriguing, setting into an expectation of whats to come, but when I was finished reading it, I had this feeling it lacked of something more. I could not see much of the character flaws. The little banters between Lou/Cameron and Noah/Stephen were for me a bit lifeless.
