He’s the perfect submissive -- gorgeous, responsive, and yet aloof, and every Dom at the Candy Cane fantasizes about claiming the sub who calls himself Saiph.

Nick Tierney is a Dom whose instincts tell him Saiph is hiding some complicated issues. He would love to help Saiph, but his desire seems hopeless in the face of Saiph’s adamant refusal to do a scene with any gay male Dom.

Then Saiph volunteers for the Candy Cane’s first annual charity auction, and Nick seizes the opportunity to have Saiph at his command, if only for a single night.

When they meet to discuss their rendezvous, Nick sees past Saiph’s facade to the pain beneath, while Saiph finds Nick is far more insightful than any Dom he’s ever met. As they get to know one another, Nick becomes more determined to help Saiph find a way to let go and truly submit. Can he convince Saiph to let down his guard enough for Nick to help him heal? Or will Nick’s rapidly deepening feelings drive Saiph away for good?

First I want to say that this is a M/M book that contains triggers for some people. There is BDSM, PTSD, and Abuse. With that being said I really enjoyed this story. Right from the start you are thrown into a world that is rarely talked about. BDSM is a lifestyle that some people enjoy.

Saiph is the perfect submissive that every Dominant wants but Saiph refuses to sub for a gay male Dom. Nick is a Dom that wants Saiph and sees through his facade. He knows that Saiph holds secrets that he is not willing to share. He keeps them buried deep inside and Nick wants to help him heal from what ever trauma he has suffered.

Then Nick gets that chance because the club where they go is having a charity auction ans Saiph has offered himself up and Nick has snatched him up. One night is all that Nick needs to convince Saiph to let his guard down and open up to him. The chemistry is there but will Saiph let his walls down long enough for Nick to give him what he needs?
