A Spin-off of Designs of Desire
Desires Entwined: Book 1.75
Despite his past abuse, James has come to terms with his relationship with his Dom and lover Seth. Seth treats James with all the trust and love his sub desires. There is only one thing left to do to make it all complete: Seth needs to put a collar on James.
After reading and enjoying Designs of Desire I wanted to read more of James’ and Seth’s story. One of the things I really liked about this novella was the way in which Seth is focused on James’ needs and made sure—very important because of his EDS—he was comfortable every step of the way. Not just comfortable physically, but emotionally as well. James is not into the BDSM scene like Seth is, and Seth respects that. When they have sex it is very much about the giving of power, and not the taking of it. The collar Seth gives James is a sign of his love, like the ring James already wears, and it’s not obviously a collar so James won’t feel uncomfortable wearing it in public. I loved the inscription on the collar, and the mutual love and respect between the two men.
I’d recommend this story for readers who enjoy reading a descriptive, emotional, and hot story about not just BDSM sex, but two men who love each other and are moving into the next step in their relationship. 5 out of 5 stars.
