Blurb: Welcome to The Cage, where you can share the ups and downs of a group of friends as they enjoy a rollicking adventure of sex and love in “the life.”
Being a Dom has always come naturally to Lazar Thornton, owner and operator of The Cage, a thriving adult toy store and meeting place for Lazar’s closest friends, Bran, Max, Otto, and the always flamboyant and fierce Miss Dré. But even the best of friends have different tastes in scenes—and in life.
Good-humored and laid back, but much in demand as both teacher and Dom, Lazar has always run from love. Until Ben Owen, relative newbie to the BDSM world, arrives wide-eyed and eager to learn, and Lazar wants to teach this sub everything he knows. But despite the openness needed for a Dom/sub relationship to thrive, neither discusses emotions. Feeling the sting of unrequited love, Ben isn’t as sure of his place in Lazar’s life as he wants to be. Lazar will need to read his sub’s heart as well as his mind if he truly wants to keep Ben in his life.

Review: This was the first book I have read by this author and was quite surprised. I wasn’t so sure what to think however. The title caught me, but the cover had me wondering. It comes off so innocent, but with that title you know there is going to be some heart to it. I am not really sure about the lifestyle but these guys seemed to find their homes.
I have checked into the Dom/Sub lifestyle through many books, so there is some kink that sounds fascinating where as others just plain freak me out. Lazar is one hot Dom, and he owns The Cage. It is a story that sells adult toys and a place for them to meet up. He loves to teach others everything he knows, but damn when Ben comes in things are going to change.
Ben is new to the whole scene. He wants to learn, and he wants Lazar to teach him. Things heat up with them, but Ben wonders about where Lazar’s heart is. It doesn’t really give a place where they discuss what they are feeling though. However the sex between them is enough to get me hot.
This author has always given a story that captivates you and keeps your attention. Which is exactly what it did for me. I had fun with it and look forward to telling those about it. It gave me almost everything I could want in a story. I am still not sure after reading the story, if I like the lifestyle or not, but hearing about their scenes is a mighty fun read.
I look forward to seeing what other stories this author has out.
