Blurb: By pulling on his leathers and entering Cuffs, the BDSM club he frequents, Holden MacKay can leave his life in Blackwater Falls behind and become “Bobby,” a masochist and sexual submissive. The pain he craves soothes something deep inside him and makes him feel alive, and the role he plays in the club enables him to fully connect with his sexual self in a way he never could with traditional sex.
But when Holden meets the aloof and sexy Dom, Sloane McClain, there’s something about the man who reaches in and grabs him right through the excesses of alcohol and drugs Holden normally indulges in.
Could this man be the mate he’s waited for, but thought he’d never find? Holden needs to figure out if what he’s feeling is real, or if it’s all just wishful thinking. But he has more secrets than just his name, and too much to lose if anyone discovers them.
And when someone begins killing the Doms Holden plays with and dumping their bodies outside Blackwater Falls, he has to act not only to find the killer and protect his secrets, but to save the man he’s beginning to love more than his own life.
Review: Handsome Holden MacKay frequents a BDSM club so he can escape for a while from his life in Blackwater Falls. He flirts and plays with all the Doms there to satisfy his masochist and submissive tendencies except for with sexy aloof Sloane McClain. Holden knows Sloane’s his mate now he just needs to convince him.
Sexy Dom and Deputy, Sloane McClain wants Holden MacKay but he doesn’t want to be just another Dom Holden plays with, so he acts casual as if he could care less about Holden. But when Holden is in trouble, Sloane comes to the rescue.
This book has a lot going on in it. From Hawke’s feud with Holden and the reason why, to him making his mate Jace mad at him. There are three grisly murders that happen only to Dom’s of the club Holden and Sloane frequent. The killer’s identity shocked me. Sloane tries his best to get Holden to be with him but Holden keeps running until he ends up getting seriously hurt by another Dom.The sex between Holden and Sloane was hot.
Great read with drama, mystery, and intense scenes.
