Overview

Vinnie Bernardi wants to leave his past as a repressed rich boy behind and find himself as a proud, gay submissive. Unfortunately, there's only one man who has ever successfully dominated him, and that man is unattainable. But Vinnie is slowly falling apart and needs a top to help him hold it together, so he decides to go ahead and make his move on Charleston, the military academy instructor at the center of his very favorite fantasies. Instead of finding his dream come true, Vinnie discovers the reality of Charleston's world is darker, more brutal, and more dangerous than he ever suspected. When Vinnie bumbles his way into Charleston's attentions, he stirs up ghosts from the other man's mysterious past--phantoms deadly enough that Vinnie begins to fear he might not survive long enough to get what he truly needs: love and a firm hand to shelter it.

I quite enjoyed this novel. The pace was fantastic, and Vinnie, the main character was young, flawed, and realistic. The dom/sub aspect was written in a believable manner, with realistic fears, desires, and concerns. I'd definitely read a sequel.

Vinnie Bernardi does everything he can to leave his life as a repressed rich boy behind in the past where he feels it belongs. He is building a new life for himself as a proud guy submissive. Though he is finding that only one man has ever been successful at dominating him and Vinnie finds himself craving that man more and more everyday as he slowly falls apart. Vinnie has always thought the man he wants unattainable but with Vinnie unable to hold it together he decides his only option is to make a move on Charleston to see where it might lead. Charleston is a military academy instructor that is also the only man to dominate Vinnie successfully. But when Vinnie bumbles his way into Charleston’s attentions Vinnie unwittingly stirs up Charleston demons from the past. He also brings phantoms from Charleston’s past out that just might not let Vinnie survive long enough to find what he is looking for: love and the man strong enough to shelter both Vinnie and that love. This story is interesting but would have been better with more back story and more interaction between Vinnie and Charleston. While the characters have depth, the readers do not get to see enough of what lead the characters to this point in their lives. The reader will get some insight into the characters histories and it is interwoven well into story there is just not enough of it to be really satisfying. While the premise of the story was a great idea, it just needed more scenes with Vinnie and Charleston to pull it off successfully. This one can easily be left on the nightstand. I give this one 3-1/2 red roses
