Review: This is a delightfully short novella is the first book in Chris McHart’s Love in Germany series. It also happens to be a hot BDSM-themed Christmas story. Note: since this book was released eight months ago, I looked up and could not find out any more on this series although the author has various works in progress.
The story is told from the POV of Ryan. He is sent to Germany to work and while there falls in love with Julian, who meets at a market. The attraction is instant and it’s hot. Julian also happens to be a Dom, and Ryan is more than willing to be his sub.
Both characters are likable and it’s difficult not to feel Ryan’s highs and lows between meeting Julian and then having to return to the states. I feel that we’ve only just got a small taste of the passion that these two characters are capable of. At first Julian is so unassuming that I was finding it difficult to see him as a Dom, but he just fits the role perfectly.
It doesn’t have to be Christmas to enjoy reading this one. It’s hot and it’s a bit of fun too. If you like your BDSM, you’ll like it. But the characters are so damn relatable and I think it’s because they start off quite ordinary and unassuming.
