Blurb: The Collars & Cuffs club has room for all types of men to find healing and love. In Damian’s Discipline, Dom Damian Barnett welcomes damaged Jeff into his home after Leo and Thomas save him from the streets. Jeff may not be a submissive, but Damian may be able to offer him the structure he needs to rebuild his life. In Make Me Soar, self-proclaimed “pain slut” Dorian Forrester is chasing the ultimate high into dangerous places. When he goes missing, Alan Marchant is determined to show Dorian that there are better way to fly.
In Dom of Ages, Eli has found his perfect submissive in Jarod, but their age gap has Jarod waiting for the other shoe to drop. A visit to Collars & Cuffs gives the struggling couple hope that their relationship just might stand a chance. And in Endings and Beginnings, barman JJ Taylor didn’t expect to find himself drawn to wannabe Dom Darren Fielding, but as the members of Collars & Cuffs face an event that will make them stronger or break them, JJ finds his life going in a direction he could have never guessed.
Review: These are the only books I have read in this series except for the last book which I also reviewed separately. I liked the snarkiness of the subs in this bundle. They are all not without their own struggles but seem to overcome them with the help of the Doms who take the time and patience to learn who they are.
Damien’s Discipline has Dom Damien and Sub Jeff. Jeff has been horribly abused by a complete disgusting waste of human space who is prison where he belongs. As a result Jeff does not trust anyone for anything and I honestly did not blame him. Damien patiently works out a way to help Jeff with what he needs.
Make Me Soar has Dorian a self proclaimed pain slut looking for that certain Dom to take him to the place he so desperately seeks. Dom Alan learns Dorian goes to Berlin to achieve this goal and so goes after him with Leo. What they find is horrifying to say the least. But it all works out in the end.
I really enjoyed Dom of Ages a lot. Jarod is fifty and a sub. After having lost his master he is determined, in my opinion, to stay true to his master. Eli is thirty and looking for someone more mature than what he has been seeing in the clubs when he sees Jarod. After a few mishaps they get together. I loved this couple and the age difference. So many times the Sub is barely legal with a much older man so it was refreshing to read about the reverse.
Beginnings and Endings is the first book I read in this series so I was a little confused about the couples. But I still enjoyed the story about a Dom Darren and a Sub JJ who with training from Thomas learn to be what the other needs in a relationship.
