Sanyam Desai is a Dom, a master of his craft. He knows exactly how to make a person beg, and he does it for a living, but he has no idea how to be in love.
Sterling Reynard is in desperate need of manners and someone who cares enough to take him in hand, but he knows he’ll never be loved.
When Sterling’s world crumbles around him, he turns to the one person who’s never asked for anything from him but his trust. But their relationship is built on quicksand, and one careless word will bring the whole thing down.
A story with a difficult to define relationship between two men who constantly overstep their own boundaries.
Sanyam is a good Dom and recruits a lot of customers. Sterling aka Fox is shattered, indoctrinated by his parents, and so in need of attention and a firm hand, he doesn’t recognize or acknowledge it himself.
When Sanyam and Fox cross paths, Fox is a rude brat and a big dick, not only to Sanyam but to everyone. Sanyam looks right through him and understands what Fox needs. When Fox's whole life is falling apart, Sanyam offers him a solution.
It wasn’t a perfect relationship, it was so flawed and this was exactly what makes this story plausible. The struggle they went through and their imperfections felt real.
Their characters were likeable and stayed that way throughout the whole story. They were both engaging and they learned from their previous actions.
It was an emotional story, the hurt felt awfully real.
An intriguingly written story, with a steady pace and a good lovable plot. I really loved it how all the side stories and the main were entwined and this all together made it to a very lovely and appealing journey.
