About the Book

When Donovan Ramsey comes home from yet another business trip he realizes he and his long-term boyfriend, Nate Pearson, have drifted apart. Donovan is used to engineering solutions in his career, but he’s stumped on how to fix his dwindling sexual relationship with Nate.

After a late night internet search, Donovan finds a place that might be exactly what they need to rekindle the romance in their relationship. There’s just one catch: the idyllic Cooper Mountain Bed and Breakfast specializes in BDSM for couples.

Over the course of the weekend, the two men experience a taste of what the BDSM lifestyle has to offer. Will that taste lead to a stronger connection between Nate and Donovan, or will it ultimately be their undoing?

Be Warned: m/m sex, BDSM, public exhibition

My Review

This is a sweet story about two men reigniting their romance. Nate and Donovan have fallen into the "old married couple" pit and fear the magic is gone for good. The initiative in taking a weekend at a specialized B&B proves to bring back the spark. The buildup to sexual action comes slowly, and in parts the dialogue with Toby and Logan, the B&B owners, almost reads like a manual. Nonetheless, it's a nice quick read a fan of M/M and kink could enjoy.
