Getting on his knees makes him question everything…and want even more...
Another failed relationship has lawyer Jamie Fielding confronting the truth—he’ll never be satisfied with any woman until he admits what he needs…to submit and to be used—hard. When a friend invites him to the exclusive Blasphemy club, Jamie is stunned to find everything he ever wanted—in the fierce, ruthless hands of a man.
Psychiatrist Alex McGarry will play with anyone who craves his rough brand of domination, but what he really wants is to settle down. Which makes the submissive male he meets at his club a bad idea—the man might be hot as hell but he’s also new to everything Alex has to offer. Except that doesn’t keep them from coming together again and again, sating every one of their darkest desires.
Master Alex sets Jamie’s whole world on fire and makes him question everything—and that’s good. Because Alex won’t tolerate hiding what they have for long and he wants much more than just having Jamie on his knees...


Jamie turned, and his gut fell. Because Master Alex was nowhere—
There. At the bar. Looking straight at Jamie like he wanted to make a meal out of him.
“Fuck,” Jamie whispered to himself. And then he forced his feet to move. He wasn’t sure what he was walking into, but the dark, hot possibility of it made him a little lightheaded. And then he was standing in front of the Dom, heart racing, blood heating, mouth dry. He wasn’t sure what to do or say, so he dropped his gaze and waited. There was almost a satisfaction in being able to do that, in being able to hand off that control to someone else.
Master Alex stepped right into his personal space, holding himself just separate from bringing them body to body, and then he gently cupped him by the neck and brought his mouth to Jamie’s ear. “I fucked up. And I would like a chance to talk to you. About playing. If you’re willing to give it to me.”
An exhilarated sweat bloomed over Jamie’s whole body and made him suddenly sure he’d give this man almost anything for the reactions he seemed able to wring out of him. With just a touch or a whisper.
But Jamie didn’t want to be jerked around, either. Not when this place felt like it could open a door for which he’d maybe been looking forever, and not when his guaranteed time here was so limited. And so Jamie mustered some big brass balls, lifted his gaze, and met the other man’s eyes. “I’m new at all this, Sir. But I’m not new at dating or relationships, or hooking up, for that matter. So, are you sure? Because I’ve kinda had enough of screwing up relationships, and I’m looking for…something here. So if you’re not sure, I’d—“
“I’m fucking sure.” Master Alex’s dark gaze blazed.
Jamie nodded, trying to play it cool even though the rasp of the other man’s voice was doing bad, bad things to him, especially as close as they still stood. “Okay.”
“Okay.” The Dom’s grip tightened on Jamie’s neck. “So is that a yes?”
“Yes, Si—“
Master Alex kissed him. His mouth hard but his tongue soft where it surged inside Jamie’s mouth. Jesus, the man tasted like sin and sex, like he could ruin him and put him back together again. It was a kiss that might’ve taken Jamie to his knees. A kiss he’d never forget.
Jamie groaned at the goodness of it, at the unexpectedness of it, at how fucking amazing it felt to be kissed and held and handled firmly, maybe even a little roughly. At being the recipient of aggressiveness instead of the instigator. His cock was as hard as it’d ever been in his whole life, from a single kiss.
The Dom’s grip on him tightened, and he finally hauled their bodies close, allowing Jamie to feel that Master Alex was aroused, too. Jamie’s heart tripped into a sprint as he gave into the kiss. It might’ve lasted for seconds or minutes, but all Jamie knew for sure was that it ended way too soon.
Master Alex pulled away. “That doubt you were feeling, that’s on me. I’m sorry. I should’ve spoken with more care earlier. But I am sure, Jamie.”
Did the man think Jamie was capable of speech after that kiss? The world was still fucking spinning around him. “I’m sure, too, Sir,” he managed, though his words came out as barely more than a breath.
A single nod. “Then come with me. Somewhere private.”




It’s a scorching and erotically-charged journey to self-discovery for two men whose connection starts out casual but quickly becomes consuming in this m/m romance set in the BDSM world.  It’s a quick read but no less satisfying as the two leads engage in a delicious dance that left me blushing with each turn of the page but cheering its truly happy ending.

Jamie Fielding always thought he knew what he wanted in life, thought he knew what satisfied him, until the day he takes a friend’s advice and walks into a world he never knew existed.  What starts out as erotic lessons soon becomes something more as matters of the heart unexpectedly become involved.  Jamie’s young and exuberant to learn about this tempting new world and jumps in wholeheartedly the moment he meets Alex.  He held nothing back in a relationship that started out as a student/teacher before quickly becoming something more profound, something that changes his life irrevocably.  Despite all their lessons Jamie never lost his youthful demeanor which brought joy and hopefulness to his relationship with Alex.  His youthfulness also brought unnecessary drama though as he let his father’s judgments mar the happiness he found in a frustrating act late in the story.

Alex McGarry’s been a Dom for years, is a master at it and has always felt self-assured with who and what he is.  Lately though he’s feeling a bit lost and feeling that something’s missing.  The moment he meets Jamie he sees a young man brimming with excitement and innocence, a young man whose naivete could lead to hurt, but he also sees just what he’s been missing.  Though he worries his brand of dominance might be too much for Jamie, he also can’t stand for someone else to get all of Jamie’s firsts.  They start out as student/teacher between the sheets but long talks away from the club soon has Alex thinking of the future until Jamie’s self-doubts put a wedge between them that might ruin everything.  Alex is very intense, very serious at the start of the story.  Being with Jamie brought him joy and rare smiles would flash, smiles that were richly rewarding.  Despite this gruff side Alex is clearly a caretaker. The quiet moments after their sexual interludes were heartwarming for the blatant affection he bestowed on Jamie, moments where his actions spoke louder than words.  The closer they got to each other the more hopeful I was for their future, especially after seeing these moments.

Alex is clearly the more mature in his relationship with Jamie, not only age-wise but also when it comes to accepting oneself.  Alex is very self-assured while Jamie’s just discovering who he is and what satisfies him.  At the club they’re a combustible couple, both feeding off the other in interludes that left me parched.  When it comes to the outside world though Jamie’s youth comes through as he let the judgments of others mar his journey to HEA.  The moment came out of nowhere, felt overly melodramatic, and though I wish it hadn’t occurred at all it at least was worked through quickly.  Despite that distraction this was a story full of decadent delights, intensely erotic encounters that vividly depicted the BDSM lifestyle, along with a surprising bit of heart that slowly crept into their many scorching encounters.  Though this is part of the Blasphemy series, with previous characters making appearances and showing support as an unconventional family, it stands strongly on its own.  Alex and Jamie are a likable couple for the most part and courtesy of a sweetly written final chapter I was left with a smile on my face.

My rating for this is a B+
