This is the first book in the series and my third book from this author. Once again I give this series 5 stars! I loved Sam immediately, while he knows to ask for what he needs he doesn’t top from the bottom as obviously as some of the other submissive characters I’ve read in this series. He is subtle and it’s an endearing character trait. The same can be said of Aaron. As a Dominant, he grapples with whether his feelings and preferences are deviant or just a natural part of his personality. Same helps him come to terms with this and together they both come out stronger than when they are first introduced. I love this series and the setting, as well as the attention to detail and the overall flow of the series. Another masterpiece of gay BDSM goodness!
