Working for a perfectionist like strict, sexy-as-hell Ethan isn’t easy. Falling in love with him? No problem at all.

Taking a bar job in an exclusive hotel is a stopgap for Andy. He’s an actor and his big break is coming soon—he knows it. His hot new boss Ethan is strict, demanding and totally off-limits but Andy can’t stop thinking about him.

When Andy learns of Ethan’s need to be in control of his partner—in bed and out of it—he’s stunned by the intensity of his reaction. He wants Ethan guiding him, bringing order to his chaotic life. And he sees that Ethan needs him too, though they can’t be open about their feelings.

Ethan deals out deliciously perverse consequences for misbehaving, but when it comes to incentives, he knows just what to offer to have Andy on his knees begging for more.

But some secrets can’t stay that way for long. And when difficult choices arise, for once Andy can’t turn to Ethan for guidance. This time, he’s on his own.

From the very beginning it is obvious that Ethan is everything Andy needs in a man. He has been adrift for a while, and I could tell only Ethan was the one up for the task to get him on track. Luckily Ethan was ready for a new project because I got to enjoy every juice piece of it.

I love how opposite these two men are, it really set the tone from the very beginning. Andy is an aspiring actor he clearly needs to learn how to manage his life better. Barely surviving, he knows Ethan and his new job are the only things that will allow him to eat another day. Ethan on the other hand is a no nonsense type of guy who seems to have everything in life worked out. He is one of those characters that you just know always had it together even at a young age. With both being almost extreme cases it is easy to see why so many believe opposites attract, and with these two it creates quite an explosion.

Initially picked this story because I was looking for a M/M BDSM story. Something that would really wow me if possible. I can say that this author certainly did that, which is no easy feat. I was extremely impressed on the author’s clear knowledge of BDSM as well as her relationship development. It was not rushed as I find with some other stories. She seem to take her time and really build up the bond required between the two characters. This made it very believable in my eyes. I even enjoyed how frenzied Andy seems at times to submit to Ethan yet he keeps a cool head. I can say that if anyone is looking for a high quality BDSM story this one is a must read.
