PRESTON is a lifestyle Dominant, recently retired from a career on stage at an exclusive BDSM club. When the series begins, he’s single and looking forward to a quieter life. All that changes on the night of Preston’s last performance when PAULO, a complete novice, takes the place of Preston’s usual stage submissive.

Excerpt

He was flying from my flogger, and I knew I could break him with the whip. I shouldn’t — he was too new — he’d imprint on me like an orphan nestling. I decided once more on this mad, unexpected night, to trust myself. I would whip Paulo, not break him, and let him down gently once our performance ended.

I examined my control for a split second as I drew back my arm. No uncertainty, no sense of wrongness intruded. I was flying, too, and as much I trusted myself, I found I trusted my surprise sub too. This was right.

He screamed around the gag at the whip’s kisses anyway, though mine were not blows that would shatter him unless I’d read him very, very wrong.

I dropped the whip and removed the obscene gag, kissed the swollen lips, swallowed the last notes of his strange, wild song just as our finale music burgeoned around us. A choir of boys sang John the Beloved’s hymn “Shine on Me,” the perfect song for my last Epiphany on this stage and, I knew now, my first on a new path.

Review: This is the story of Paulo and Preston. It talks about Paulo more because he is the main focus of all the stories. You will find out how they meet, how they get together and a focus on how their lives work out. The kink in this story is one major factor for the whole book it seems, but let’s just say that Paulo’s songs are a major hit for me. He is just so quirky.

Ding Dong Merrily ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Hal was directing the Sister City Gay Men’s Chorus and Paulo was driving him insane with his twisted songs. I mean Christmas songs now have the fun time of BDSM being added into the tunes. Should make for one hell of a kinky Christmas.

This was a blast to read. I laughed my ass off at Paulo’s songs. I never heard of being tied down to the cross so hot and bothered before.

Heard on High ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Hal was bound and determined to get his group singing to well maybe not the gods, but they will be turning on some. Arlie was the new kid on the block and had when he was younger the sweetest voice. However he was not doing so good with singing tenor. Something was missing, and after some hot sex Hal knew what it was.

I love how Hal, even though he wanted Arlie, took the time to figure out what he young man needed. He just found out what he needed also. I had a blast reading this. It was pretty sweet and damn sexy.

Epiphany: Shining Through ♥♥♥♥ 3 ½ Hearts

Paulo sings in the choir introduced in Heard on High. When he goes to see his friend Jim perform at a BDSM club, he’s fascinated by the man’s partner, Master Rose. So, when he finds out that Jim isn’t feeling well on the night of Epiphany, he jumps at the chance to fill in for the final performance of the holidays, not knowing this is Master Rose’s final performance at the club, not knowing how far he’ll be pushed. Or how far both of them might fall.

Now this one was just a bit different then the first ones I read about. I am not really sure what to think about it. Although I am not sure a true dom would take on a newbie sub for a show. I am use to the spankings and whips, but this one was a bit too much for me. Although the ending was better than I thought it would be.

Lavatory Luxor ♥♥ 2 Hearts

Paulo missed Preston or as he is called Master Rose. He knew even after one show, that he was the man he wanted.

I can’t really go into this little story without giving it away. Let’s just say that it was sweet but not much there to even think about.

Master Preston’s Bright Bottom ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

Preston had been afraid of what Paulo could actually mean to him. It was the reason he had turned him away the second time he saw him. Now he needed some yard work done and Paulo seems to have the means. Guess it means he will have to get his head out of his ass and show the boy what he is thinking.

Now this was the best yet to come. I had a blast reading it and loved what it meant. I finally understood why Preston had not wanted to encourage Paulo, but loved how he made it all right.

Lua-de-Mel ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Preston and Paulo have been together for a month now. It is slow going but then it was very hot doing so. Preston decides to reward his boy.

This is hot and very cute. I had a blast reading this story. It is so damn sweet and tender, but has a spice that will have you turned the hell on.

Adaptations ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts Preston was so much older than his boy and with age comes some weakness. His is the fact that his hands were not working well. He was not showing his boy any love and it was up to Paulo to figure out what is going on. It was up to Preston to decide to show him.

It was very heart-warming to read about the age difference and pain, then to find a solution for what is wrong. I had a blast reading this.

Bearing Witness ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Things do change in time, although not in the way one expects. Paulo knew that Preston was in fear of his hands not doing what he wanted and he was slowly backing away. However his thoughts were wrong in a way. When they saw an ending to another’s relationship, Paulo thought that his was ending also. Preston however had something more profound in mind.

This one is a bit harder to get into but not to understand. There is such a age difference that you can see how one slows down while the other is still going full speed. I love how Preston shows him in the end, but how they got there was what was not right. It was a bit strange, but I did have a blast with it.

Fiddler in the Buff ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Preston and Paulo had an unexpected gift. Zaz is the naked fiddler, and a total dweeb. He is staying there till Tasim decides if he can be the sub for him. Too bad Zaz is a liar all the way and in more ways than one would think. Preston also had a big surprise for his boy.

I think I would have shot Zaz within the first three days. Arrogant ass is what he is. This one had bit more laughter in it than the others. I had a blast and enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

Paulo’s Santa Kink ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Paulo’s harbored an unusual fantasy for years. Working up the courage to tell Master Preston about it is only the first step. Preston has to figure out a way to fulfill his boy’s Christmas wish without losing his authority as a top. Flannel pyjamas, hot chocolate, and Christmas cookies join red velvet, black leather, and willow switches in this tale of nicely naughty gift-giving.

This was past funny; I couldn’t stop laughing at it. I had a blast reading this one.

Fireflies in the Bathtub ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Arthritic hands and bathroom renovations aren’t sexy. Well, not usually. When Master Preston’s hands prevent him shaving himself, neither he nor Paulo expect how sexy it will be for Paulo to serve his master in a new way. With Preston’s birthday approaching, refurbishing their old bathroom to accommodate their shaving scenes gives Paulo the perfect opportunity to show his master the depth of his love.

This was the sweetest of them all so far. I absolutely love Paulo and am amazed at his power of love for his master. I enjoyed this story just as much as the others.

Full Frontal ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Preston has never heard Paulo’s safe word within a scene. When he does, everything stops, and Paulo and Preston are forced to confront a demon from Paulo’s past. Paulo insists he’s ready to move on, but the incident shakes Preston’s confidence. To make their way forward takes courage and trust and… wax?

Now this one was fun to read also, however there was something not so right about it. I am not too sure about it, but it didn’t take away from the story itself.

A Better Fate than Wisdom ♥♥♥♥ 3 ½ Hearts

This is a special bonus story. In Full Frontal, the guy that did Paulo’s waxing is Bruno and his partner is Alex. They were in their fifties at the time, but this story is their beginning. Bruno and his master are not the pair I would want. In walks Alex and Bruno is caught.

This was cute and way to short. Now I am dying to hear about their lives. I can say this for the story, it was hot.

Overall

They were very intriguing and fun stories to read. However I would have been happier if it had all been one whole story with more to them, then all of these little stories. I absolutely loved Paulo’s crazy songs though. I don’t really know how he did it, but they were the best part of the whole book. I also loved Paulo and Preston’s story. I do wish that it had more meat to it though. It was a very good book though.
