Love. The most powerful force in existence, but also the most ruthless. Cunning and deceptive. Man’s greatest Achilles heel. Leaving all who embrace it weak and vulnerable.
At least that’s how Dom-for-hire Max Kelley sees it, after the love of his life knocked him on his ass. A brutal blow that not only stole his breath, but decimated his ability to trust. Turning him cold and cynical. The TKO he never saw coming.
Love. A mistake Max won’t ever make again.
Meaning no more relationships—not exactly a hardship. Just the thought of dating makes him queasy, and one of the reasons he doms for a living. To sexually engage without the poison of intimacy. The other reason? To keep his demons sated. With whips and chains, and scandalous kink. A fiery mix that always hits the spot.
That is, until a bright-eyed beauty walks into his life and refuses to leave.
Sean Matthews. College senior and flirt extraordinaire. Max’s newest—and greenest—client sub. Man, is he delicious; able to push Max’s buttons, able to make him crave the things he knows he shouldn’t. Sound the alarm, this can only mean trouble. Unfortunately, deterring Sean proves virtually impossible, and now Max finds himself at a crossroads.
Man up and kick his favorite sub to the curb… or succumb to his own caged desires.
Warning: This erotic, gay, BDSM romance contains intensely explicit sexual scenes both inside and out of the dungeon.
Since Upending Tad is my very favorite M/M pretty much ever, I was freaking excited to get my hands on Max and Sean’s story. I mean how could I not be dying to get my hands on these two? After their unforgettable intro in Upending Tad and their equally memorable departure, I needed to know. Plus, Max is a super hot Dom with an attitude and a very mysterious past.
Kora killed it with this book and managed to surprise the hell out of me. This isn’t some BDSM erotica, this is a gripping story full of detail and intricacies that both tie into Upending Tad and then far surpass it. Max’s backstory is enthralling and heartbreaking, his character an intriguing dichotomy of stoicism and compassion. He will piss you off, make you swoon, make your heart race and your panties melt. Oh…and he is one kinky SOB. I fell in love with Max and his history and find myself pulling for him in a way I never expected. And don’t forget Sean, he is a wonderful addition to the story. His character took me by surprise since we learned almost nothing about him before this book. He is endearing and sweet without being soft. He is smart and a good guy, hot and apparently has an untapped appetite for kink. Who knew? And make no mistake, the kink in this book takes it to an entirely different level. I read some kinky stuff and a lot of BDSM and this book even made me pause. It’s rare to find a book that is both heavy on erotica and heavy on character depth and storytelling. This book pulls it off.
I loved the overlap between this series and the original. I was thrilled to finally get to see the genesis of Max and Scott’s friendship and the beginning of Max and Sean. This entire thing was just so damn GOOD. Bring on Revived…I CAN NOT WAIT.
