Kenneth Brannigan is a small-town history professor. He’s happy with his life, loves the classes he teaches, and lives in a tiny apartment in a converted house with his best friend, Tim, next door. He’s still recovering from a bad breakup and is content to stick to his comfortable routine. It’s Tim who insists he come to the Queer Alliance’s Rainbow Mixer. At the mixer, Kenn meets David Burgundy, a new-to-town TA who is working on his masters. Dave is drawn immediately to Kenn and is thrilled when Kenn offers to show him the best pizza place in town. One meal leads to two, which leads to Dave and Kenn spending most of their free time together… and Kenn loosening his self-imposed rules regarding dating and sex for some kinky fun. Kenn’s ex isn’t going to just let Kenn be, though, and the happier Kenn is with Dave, the less the ex likes it. Will Kenn continue to run away from his past, or will his relationship with Dave help him face it head-on?

He had his teaching and a few close friends and that was enough for him, he wasn’t ready to open himself to that kind of hurt again. After letting himself get talked into attending a Rainbow Mixer, Kenn met Dave and while the attraction between them was instant, Kenn felt cautious, still feeling burned. Dave is a TA, but he’s positive he and Kenn can learn a thing or two together.

I really enjoyed this slow-paced story. I felt there was plenty of time for the reader to really get to know Dave and Kenn and understand both their personalities and what they wanted out of a relationship. While the chemistry between the men was smoking hot from the start Kenn wasn’t really looking for love and because of Kenn’s reluctance Dave wasn’t sure how hard or fast to push. This left enough time for me to really believe in their connection and see where the relationship was heading without making it feel like the pace dragged, nor rushing in so fast I just couldn’t find it believable. This balance was done perfectly and I eagerly devoured the pages watching these two men come together.

There was a small group of very strong secondary characters (I’d love to read a story about Kenn’s best friend, Tim!) and while they didn’t number very many it was enough to round out the story and have it not feel like the university was a little bubble hidden away from the rest of the world. There’s a delicious amount of kink in this story – but David and Kenneth ease themselves into that aspect of the story carefully and I feel it’s very tastefully written. I feel this would be a good starting place for erotica readers who want to delve into the fictional world of BDSM but aren’t sure they want to read anything too over the top or that push the boundaries too much. There is some slit-play, rimming, plugs and piercings but David and Kenneth discuss safety and their limits and other items in what I found to be an interesting way – so it didn’t just feel to me as the reader like they were checking boxes, but actually discussing what they were each comfortable with and what they wanted to explore.

The “crazy ex” plotline was decent, but a little clichéd for my personal tastes. I definitely felt it added a bit of drama and conflict but I could have been equally satisfied had that sub-plot not been there. I feel there was a lot of conflict simply between Dave and Kenn entering their relationship and testing the waters between them as they became intimate.

I enjoyed this story – with oodles of sex, lots of chemistry and interesting characters who I became invested in. I really wanted to know what happened next and that made this a brilliant story for me, and one I know I’ll enjoy reading many times again in the future.
