Reno MacLeod · 0 review45 Fabulous I read this in one sitting last night and was really sorry when it finished extremely hot the sex is sizzling and the sexual tension between all three protags electric Ethan s introduction into the BDSM lifestyle was really fascinating and from the moment he met David and Kiyoshi I was drawn to the three men like a moth to a flamemind ou I do love my M nage s Like David and Ethan I was totally enamoured with Kiyoshi the beautiful cross dressing sub and for me he was the star of the show Sexy sassy and sensual he really suits the nickname of Kitten from David his Sensai and he purrs very nicely but he s also got claws which show subtly when Ethan first enters into his and David s established relationship and later when he confronts a nasty Dom view spoiler which unfortunately leads to repercussions hide spoiler For a somewhat shorter book under 250 pages it packed a wallop I liked the tension both sexual and physical that existed between the three This was how I anticipate a threesome in BDSM would work It relies on trust and communication and no one is perfect A totally different take a the BDSM theme insightful and very respectful Ethan is an erotic romance author seeking inspiration for a new book He
Stumbles Across David Clarkeacross David Clarke lifestyler and real life Dom and asks for an interview But when he meets with David at a BDSM convention David s sub Kiyoshi Sato takes overand Ethan gets much than he d hoped for and in an entirely different way I loved the dynamics between David Kiyoshi and Ethan in either combination All three were interesting characters with Ethan the best worked out and David the most mysterious as it fits their respective roles Kiyoshi was a simply adorable combination of spoiled brat and lionhearted fighter The story moved fast with some surprising twists and turns Although the three had been only together for a few days I could relate to their uickly developing relationship The story is about building and earning trust I alongside with Ethan learned a lot about BDSM after re Updated Review 45 starsThis book is about the journey of a man into BDSM with the right teachers Ethan is an mm erotica writer He does everything he can to find a subject that totally enthralls him Then he digs deep into research and come out on the other side with a story hopefully about real men in that situation On the flight home from his day job as a freelance photographer on a safari in Africa Ethan sees a BDSM magazine in the hands of the passenger next ot him and after striking a conversation with the man about the publication he is reading Ethan decides that the BDSM community is going to be part of his next project He records the name of the Dom in the magazine that has caught his eye and after finding out that he and his sub will be attending a conference near him he arranges to meet them both at the conference to start his researchDavid and Kiyoshi are uite a famous couple in the BDSM circuit David is a skilled Dom who teaches classes theory and practical at different conferences during the ear Kiyoshi his sub is also eually famous both for being David s long time sub and for his own grace beauty and submission They love each other very much but they have a somewhat tenuous connection Ethan is completely taken by them and within only a few hours decides that if he really wants to learn from
them he will enter into the community for the weekend Hehe will enter into the community for the weekend He learns that almost all of his thoughts about BDSM are completely wrong though there are many within the community as well who are unable to grasp the finer points David does not rule with an iron fist just as Kiyoshi does not relinuish power when he submits to David The power dynamic is fluid and constantly changing just as a relationship does Soon however David starts to love the place he has come to settle within the couple s dynamic Will they feel the same Or will they let him go at the end of the weekend as he originally wantedThe beauty of this parti.

IS AN OBJECTIVE AUDIENCE TO DAVIDan objective audience to David Kiyoshi s relationship though he soon becomes part of it Yet with the possibility of their weekend menage lasting no longer than the convention Ethan is able to retain the mask of partiality Therefore while we are able to see the BDSM community from the inside out at the same time as Ethan is able to understand the true meaning of the community of power and the dynamics of giving and receiving it in a fresh and new way The dynamic between David and Kiyoshi and later as Ethan seems to take pleasure in pushing the boundaries of their relationship helped me to understand the benefits that David and Kiyoshi and Ethan as well receive from a relationship in the context of BDSM Likewise the way that they viewed the community helped Though they may seem the perfect Dom and sub in public it is only that a display In private the one who ultimately holds the power is Kiyoshi It was fascinating to watch Ethan learn this and then see the community through their eyes For the full review please visit Reviews by JessewaveOriginal Review I loved this book so much Even though I don t read very much BDSM this is by far my favorite mm BDSM book not to mention my favorite so far of Jaye and Reno s books I

T writing project he stumbles upon a man named David Turner and the taboo world of BDSM His curiosity piued Ethan discovers that David Turner and his beautiful partner Kiyoshi are coming to town Main characters Ethan Ki and David were psychologically unbalanced nutcases using BDSM as some form of therapy
was a book I down in one sitting and ripped right through It s a great fast read with hot scenes There is also tenderness that I like I also like this example of the 247 lifestyle Very lovely I definitely recommend this to my BDSM friends who want something romantic and hot Innocently unaware of how little he truly knows of BDSM Ethan steps unprepared into a world where he is challenged to step out from behind his safety as an observer and enter the scary uncertainty of participating His next twenty four hours are comprised of moments where his choices however large or alter his path as well as David and Kiyoshi s All characters are fully developed and wonderfully drawn from the intense and loving relationship between Kiyoshi and David to Ethan s wide eyed eagerness and earning for Kiyoshi is a charming intelligent spoiled brat He is wonderfully written with a deft hand clearly showing a man no matter how beautiful he may be with his stilettos make up and clothing His devotion and service to David shows the true strength and elegance of a BDSM relationship where the ownership is clearly on both sides David is much of an enigma for all that he is clearly an essential aspect of the threesome relationship He is engaging and scene stealing confident and charismatic with an obvious strength His love and adoration for Kiyoshi is charming and their interaction is lovely to watch The authors clearly have a true understanding of how a healthy vital BDSM relationship works and creates a magnetic dynamic here between these men Many of their interactions are subtle but show the strength love and purpose shared between David and Kiyoshi without the need for grand gestures There are a surprising number of elements woven into this fabulously engaging and riveting tale Between the m nage relationship BDSM elements tension from outside forces the mixture of personalities needs and wants Soft Focus delivers a well written cohesive and beautiful story Although this is a romance the characters have an intensity and edge that never mistake this for an easy relationship Ethan and Kiyoshi relationship shows great depth and growing emotions while Ethan navigates his place as submissive to David The complex interactions and intense relationships between the three men amidst the BDSM backdrop creates an engaging story filled with graphic sex and violence but fitting the characters and setting without turning the reader away There is no uestion all three men desired each other with very steamy sex scenes which thankfully weren t just there for the sake of sex The BDSM elements are clever and interesting showing a great deal of knowledge while poking gentle fun at a great number of misconceptions The knowledge of the authors or their research is clear and refreshing to have an honest and authentic perspective versus perpetuating ideas simplyThis Was A Book I
Because Some Find Them Sexysome find them sexy interesting and incredibly hot men drew me into the story very uickly leaving me rapt at Ethan s earnest missteps and honest emotions I was kept guessing as to what would happen in each moment As the path of our life can change in an instant the fascinating turns that follow the lives of these three men will keep MongoDB you glued to their story This book is a steal at only 250 for 167 pages First let me say that I have read and liked these authors before but for some reason this book did not do it for me It felt like a PSA for novice practitioners about safe bdsm practices with a few sex scenes thrown in there I didn t feel any character development or relationship building and it seems a bit unlikely that in the course of one weekend someone who has never been in the lifestyle before would choose to be in a 247 submissive relationship I give this book 15 stars For a much better bdsm story by these authors at least in my opinion check out A Perfect Game. Or a conventionEthan makes arrangements for them to meet but little does Ethan know that he is about to embark on a safari into a world wild and untamed than anything he has ever encountered befor.
