Overview

Blindfolds. Handcuffs. Submission.

There's so much Jonah Kendrick hasn't tried, and so much he wants to explore. But just before Christmas he finds a ring box in his boyfriend's desk. Jonah panics. He loves Evan and their sex is hot, but how can Jonah be ready for forever, when there are so many items on his Naughty Bucket List? Desires that might drive Evan away.

Evan's noticed Jonah has been distant. His usually talkative and cheerful boyfriend is preoccupied. The seemingly straitlaced Evan stumbles across Jonah's wish list of sexual kinks, and Evan realizes he may not have to hide his true nature from Jonah after all. The Dom in him wants to see Jonah on his knees, begging, submitting, but Evan isn't sure Jonah's ready to accept what being Evan's sub would mean.

The two lovers must figure out how to share their hidden desires with each other before their secrets permanently damage their love.

Tape. Where was the goddamned tape?

Jonah dug through a couple of drawers in the kitchen. He could have texted Evan, but beside the lie Jonah had told about already having wrapped the stupid action figure for Evan's cousin, he knew what Evan's answer would be. Same place it always is, babe.

It wouldn't be such a crisis if Jonah wasn't already late. Hadn't promised he'd be ready to go at six? But he'd gotten home late, then he couldn't find where he'd stuffed the present. Then he'd had to find wrapping paper. Hell, he hadn't even packed yet.

Jonah's gaze lit on Evan's desk, a desk with paper and pens and neatly organized bills, since Evan insisted on quaintly paying stuff like the mortgage and his car with paper checks instead of online. Lately, Jonah had been wondering if someone had taken the sexy, fun guy he'd fallen for and replaced him with a staid sixty-year-old.

Digging through the top drawer, Jonah found a computer printout receipt. That wasn't like Evan, to get something online that he'd need to hang onto a receipt for, especially not something that looked like it had a bar code on it, like an advance movie ticket. As Jonah got a better look at it he realized it was for a train ticket. Two train tickets. To New York, on December 30. Under that was the printout of a hotel reservation, the Marriott in Times Square. For the thirtieth through the first—New Year's Day which meant—

Evan was taking Jonah to New York for New Year's Eve.

Every bit of irritation vanished on a giant wave of excitement. Evan had been hinting about a big surprise for Jonah's birthday. But this—this was something he'd been dreaming about most of his life. Ever since he made the paper as the first local New Year's Baby, he'd been telling everyone that the big party was for him. Growing up less than three hours from New York put the biggest New Year's party in the world tantalizingly close, but somehow Jonah had never made it.

How could Evan have managed to get a reservation? Jonah had heard the rooms were wildly expensive and booked years in advance.

Shit, he hoped he wouldn't blow the surprise. It wasn't like he'd been snooping. Once, his mom had taken back the Transformers set that was all he'd wanted for Christmas because Jonah had "accidentally" found it in the closet. This really had been a mistake. Yeah, that excuse hadn't worked with his mom. Evan wouldn't be a jerk like that, but Jonah hated the idea of ruining this for him. Evan got such a kick out of the whole present-giving thing, had given him something small every month for the first year they were together.

Jonah folded the papers the way he'd found them and was about to slide them back into the drawer when he saw the box. A jewelry box. Heartbeat loud in his ears, because this really was snooping now, he drew the box out. Why would Evan have a jewelry box hidden in his desk?

Maybe it was something for Evan's mom, but then why wasn't it wrapped and ready to go? Jonah had never been particularly interested in jewelry. He had both his ears pierced, but wore only small squares of cubic zirconia now that he had a wear-a-tie job, and a leather and silver cuff he sometimes wore when they were going someplace dressy.

Maybe Evan had decided to give him an upgrade to the real thing. The idea gave Jonah an unexpected rush of warmth in his stomach. A big trip, diamond earrings—Evan wasn't scraping by, but he wasn't rolling in cash either. His ad work paid a lot more than Jonah's IT job with the school district though.

This is the first book by K.A Mitchell I've read and it's also the first M/M I've read. I have to say I'm looking forward to reading more of each. With that in mind, I will say the Dom/Sub aspect of the book was a little too much for me. Since M/M is a new area for me, I didn’t know what to expect. After I got the guys right in my mind, it was an easy book to follow and understand. I loved the characters of Evan and Jonah, even if there were times when Jonah got on my nerves. I was completely blown away by how HOT this book was. The book overview does a really good job of summing the book up. Jonah accidentally comes across a box containing wedding rings and he automatically thinks Evan is getting ready to propose to him. I mean really, who wouldn’t think that? Jonah and Evan have been together for two years. Me personally, two years and I need a ring and a lifetime commitment. I understand why Jonah freaked out. A lifetime is a really LONG time to be with someone and you want to make sure you’re making the right decision. But instead of talking to Evan, Jonah decides to make a so-called bucket list of things he wants done in the bedroom, and of course he writes it on a piece of paper. Hey, nothing can go wrong with having something like that on a piece of paper now can it? Right. Evan is the guy everyone wants. He’s not pushy or overbearing, he’s patient. He constantly asks Jonah what he wants or what he needs, if everything is okay. Evan finds the paper Jonah wrote his list on. He wonders why Jonah just doesn’t tell him what he needs to be fulfilled. Evan gives Jonah plenty of opportunities to tell him, Jonah just doesn’t. I mean who isn’t going to love a guy like that and want to spend eternity with them? I loved the way Evan guides Jonah towards fulfilling Jonah’s dreams/fantasies and his own. The book boils down to the guys needing to trust each other and to being open and honest with each other.
