He demands his submissive’s body and soul…but can he accept his sub’s heart?
Roddy Green never planned to fall in love and certainly not with his Dom, but every time he goes into Darkness, a fetish club, he falls for Vegas all over again. Being in love isn’t the same as being loved in return. Vegas is there to do a job—not to build a romance. But what if the main constant in Roddy’s life is also the one person he can’t live without?
Andrew Vegas knows his job. He’s a Dom. But there is more than one side to him and he’s tired of keeping the other parts of him hidden. One man makes him feel safe and comfortable enough to open up—his pet, Roddy. But will Roddy, the producer of a local news broadcast, want to be with a man with secrets?
Roddy is used to being in control as the producer for Channel 25, but he was more than happy to give it up for his Dom, Master Vegas. When the pressures of his work got to overwhelming, he headed down to the club, Darkness, and let Vegas have his way. It's what he needed, what he craved, but unfortunately his job didn't allow for that sort of thing to happen too often.
Andrew Vegas is more than a Dom, although he is very good at what he does. But he also works a day job in a community center and he loves his work with kids. Unfortunately a bad past meant that he had trouble thinking he could have a relationship with someone, although he wants one with Roddy. Unbeknown to him, Roddy wants the same thing.
But when Vegas added sex to their play, things did change between them. After seeing each other for two years, how could it not?
A new power swept over him. He wasn't there simply to bring his sub pleasure. He was there to take the same pleasure. They were a pair. They hadn't come out and admitted they belonged together, but they did.
There was something very realistic about the hesitancy that both men felt about taking things further. Roddy was in a high powered job, Andrew not so much. Andrew didn't think he had anything worth giving Roddy outside of the club, but he was essentially a good man. I liked that in this story the Dom of the pair was the one without much money and a job that was more community than power orientated. I also liked how Eric came to Roddy's rescue in relation to his job, although I definitely did not like Susan. Her type give women a bad name.
This is the first time I have read anything by Megan Slayer, but it won't be the last. I did think the book could have been longer, and I appreciated the epilogue. But I would have liked to have seen more interaction between the two men - hearing that they had played together for two years put things in perspective, but I am one who likes to see the feelings develop over time. Not a complaint though. The book was well-written, the story line was awesome and sweet, and yep, I just loved Vegas. I'm off to find some more of Megan's books.
