Blurb: Dawson Thomas is a rent boy, a young man who goes out hoping to impress a man who’ll pay him to be a submissive for a kinky night together. One night he accompanies a friend to a BDSM club in New York. Raw Hide is a place where men gather to live out their fantasies and Dawson can’t believe his good luck when the owner invites him upstairs to be paid for a night of kink. When others whisper that the man is hideously deformed, calling him “The Monster”, Dawson remembers the cost of his tuition and puts aside his fears, accompanying the bodyguard to the man’s apartment.
Each night, Cole Chambliss paces in his rooms above Raw Hide, watching beautiful submissives give themselves to their Doms, just a few steps down the stairs. Cole longs for days past when he could go out in public… when no one would stare at him in horror. After paying a bitter price when fighting for his country, Cole knows his days of walking among whole men are gone forever… that is until one night he takes a risk that terrifies him. The stunning submissive who’s caught his eye is something extraordinary and Cole decides he must chance everything for one last shot at happiness.
One dark night, one desperate risk, and one horrifying request later, Cole hears the words he’s feared since his return from the war. “Say my name, Sir… please just… say my name…”
Review: Cole is the owner of Raw Hide, a club where men socialize and meet up to act out their fantasies. Cole secretly yearns for a submissive but due to the scars he obtained while in the military he hides out watching scenes play out. Enter Dawson, cute rent boy looking for a Dom to pay for his service. When Cole invites him up things heat up.
I loved this story. Cole’s scars cause him to be self conscience, which I understood. But hiding in the shadows is no way to live and I was glad he took a chance with Dawson. This story about Dawson and Cole was good. The secondary characters added to the mix as a way to set up future books in the series.
All in all it was an enjoyable read with plenty of sexy times and drama that added character to the story.
