I received an ARC of this novel for an honest review. I really enjoyed this novel! I have not read the first 3 books of the series but really enjoyed the supportive characters and was able to read this as a standalone and grasp the connections to previous stories. The writing was wonderful and I liked the original take on a historical 1920’s perspective especially for a M/M BDSM story. The use of terminology and brands familiar to that time was well done, there were no gaps or confusing pieces of the story, and I felt connected to the main and supporting characters. The empathy that everyone had for the submissives and their treatment was a palpable thing, which I also found refreshing. They were not objectified and instead were very well cared for. This is something that often is missing. The sex was exciting, well written, and not clichéd. If you are looking for an entertaining and engaging M/M BDSM book I would highly suggest this author!
