Can a wealthy but bored businessman rescue a tortured musician from his self-imposed purgatory with a scorching kinky romance?
When Rene Conette attends an intimate performance at a local bar, the guitarist moves him enough that he attempts to go backstage but is stymied by the man’s bodyguard. Putting it down as not meant to be, he goes on with his life only to run into the man again, late at night at a bookstore.
Gavin Turner used to be a famous musician until an obsessed fan kidnapped and tortured him. Then it came out that he was into the BDSM lifestyle, and the court of public opinion ravaged him. He lost his Master and his self-confidence. Now he hides behind his ink and his bodyguards, who make sure he doesn’t come into contact with anyone or anything he doesn’t want to. Though it’s been years since he satisfied his needs, he doesn’t think he can trust again.
If Rene can work his way past Gavin’s defenses, they might find they complement each other perfectly.
A Dom who has never had a boy and a boy in desperate need of a Dom come together over beautiful music in Inked Music.
Gavin Turner is a man living a new life, one much different from his old one. Gavin was a famous musician who had it all until a deranged fan tried to steal it all away. Now he lives a life of solitude with only his “beasts” to stand by him. His twin bodyguards are his only companions, his only family. When a random encounter with Rene, a wealthy businessman turns into curiosity for Gavin, he begins to wonder if he’s ready to try again, try being a boy, try living his life again…try learning to trust.
I really enjoyed seeing Gavin come back to life in this story, he grows a lot from the man we first meet. His backstory is something I would have liked to learn more about. Everything he’s been through is such a part of the man we meet that I wanted to learn more. Rene is someone that I really did like, he’s a Dom and only wants Gavin to be safe, happy, and fulfilled. This is what a Dom should be and their relationship is filled with as much sweetness as it is heat. While we’re watching two people fall in love for the first time, this has a feeling of a second chance story. It’s easy to see that these two could have missed out on each other without the care and patience that they give to both, each other and themselves.
