Copy received for review from publisher
Upon approval to review this book from Riptide Publishing, I was beyond thrilled! Not only have I been a fan of the publisher but I’m also a big fan of the author, L.A. Witt. Needless to say, I read the book within a few days of receiving it because I just had to dig into it!
This book is a BDSM title but never once did I feel it was too intense or crossed any lines. I was really impressed with the book as far as the BDSM scenes were handled. I’ve read very intense BDSM and very mild and I’d say this falls in the middle. The setting of Finding Master Right takes place at a Leather Convention! It was so well written (and if you’ve ever been to any conventions you know how they look and feel and know the process of them) you feel like you are wandering the booths and smelling the leather of the convention as they are!
Okay, a bit about the boys (because it is always about the boys)! Let’s start with the big bad Dom, Chase Martin. Is he all strong, harsh and possessive throughout this book? NO, far from it! Chase is coming off a two year relationship with a submissive he had collared. The relationship ended abruptly and badly so he is a bit if a wounded Dom. As we see through the book, he is trying to determine if he is still upset over his ex or if he is more upset that he was over his sub before he even left. Yeah, makes for some interesting head space! What I liked about Chase: his protectiveness, how he was present without always commanding space, his patience and for a Dom he was actually quite passionate. Let’s just say he was very enamored with Derek.
Now for Derek who I would say was quite a treat…for everyone. Literally. Derek is a little sub slut! He knows it as does the whole club he belongs to. Derek is a newer sub compared to the experience Chase has as a Dom. Unfortunately, that difference is the true cause for the two of them not hooking up for some serious play prior to this convention. Derek was just entering the scene and working through what he wanted and liked in that world and Chase was in a relationship that was starting to deteriorate. By the time Derek was lusting after Chase, Chase was in a bad space. Their planets were just not aligning. During the convention, they are both available and rooming together. They are forced to face their feelings (hardcore desire!) for each other. So, a bit more about Derek. He is a masochist through and through. A total pain slut. He can slip into sub space quickly and his pain threshold is very high. He is adventurous and willing to try anything. He is a Dom’s wet dream! He is Chase’s wet dream!
Overall, I liked the little cat and mouse game the boys were playing. Sometimes in a book that can get frustrating for the reader but in this case it was more about getting to their best place than playing. Through it all communication was open, even though not all up front and honest. We really get to know these two boys and I was totally rooting for them to get together. I would love to see them in another book or short (I know, not nice of me to say that to an author because they hear that so much.) because I REALLY want a full D/s scene between Chase and Derek. I think the pages would catch fire but I’m willing to take that risk! Have fire extinguisher, will read it!
To recap, this was a smoking hot BDSM book with a nice sampling of scenes and some true romance in the making between two leather boys.
RATING: BAD ASS COMBAT BOOTS!! (And a leather harness on the side!!)
