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 A totally different take a the BDSM theme insightful and very respectful Ethan is an rotic romance author seeking inspiration for a new book He stumbles across David Clarke a 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 Gone (Gone, entirely different way I loved the dynamics between David Kiyoshi and Ethan inither 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 Threads Of The Shroud earning trust I alongside with Ethan learned a lot about BDSM after readind this I canven imagina a relationship like David s and Kiyoshi s workin in real life In addidtion to this I felt delightfully All Seated on the Ground entertained So nothing missing from this book I m a huge fan of the mmm genre and mixed up with a sugar coating of kink this story isxactly what I loveThe freelance nature photographer and novelist Ethan Bouwer is hunting a topic for his new writing project The world of BDSM He trips over the Dom David Turner and his beautiful partner and cross dressing sub Kiyoshi who are uite a famous couple in the BDSM circuit Ethan is completely taken by them and within a few hours he decides that he really wants to learn from them Soft Focus delivers a well written and beautiful story It s written with a great deal of sensitivity It makes clear that BDSM is based on loving trust and honesty and lack of respect and brutality have no place in this lifestyle Although this is a romance the characters are intense They are clearly defined and I could Untitled. easily connect withach of them I liked how the authors bring out the pros and cons of the BDSM lifestyle and how idiots like the one in the story can give a whole community a bad name What I didn t like was the shortness of the story There s definitely a lot for Ethan to learn and that could have been an interesting journey if there would be a seuel It s too bad that the authors left us high and dry 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 nter the scary uncertainty of participating His next twenty four hours are comprised of moments where his choices however large or minor alter his path as well as David and Kiyoshi s All three characters are fully developed and wonderfully drawn from the intense and loving relationship between Kiyoshi and David to Ethan s wide yed Against All Odds eagerness and yearning 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 andlegance of a BDSM relationship where the ownership is clearl.
