Simon has an offer for his stressed out roommate, but is this stubborn sub already too far gone for Simon’s methods?

Max’s high pressure job as a surgeon is getting to him and he’s starting to suffer for it. His roommate Simon has a solution for him, but is Max ready to give up control or will this Dom have to work for it?

Simon’s not used to dealing with such stubborn subs, but he can’t sit back and let Max’s health and sanity continue to decline in the name of his work. Enough is enough already and if Max doesn’t accept what he’s offering, then Simon might just have to come up with something even more drastic.

But when a night of passion between these two strong willed men exposes Simon’s secrets, it might be he who has to learn to trust and let go of the control he so desperately seeks.

Serving Simon is an interesting read. Simon is a Dom who likes control without the extra trappings of BDSM. Max is stressed to the breaking point and Simon has had enough of watching him run himself down.

Simon obviously really cares for Max, they’ve been roommates for a year and have never made a move on each other. I enjoyed watching the byplay between these characters. Max has to be so in control in his job that he wants to let go with Simon but fights it because he doesn’t think he should want to.

They have an interesting dynamic, they aren’t dating like a traditional couple but they do have a relationship that is more than sex. I don’t think Max could let go with someone he didn’t trust.

The ending kind of threw me, since I didn’t see it coming. Overall I enjoyed this story, it has the feel of a start of a series. I would definitely read more about Simon and Max. This is a pretty hot story with a Dom who loves control but not pain, and a strong sub who learns letting go can help him focus in his every day life.
