Neal and Way from The Closet Boy are back, only now they’re Dom and sub, and exploring their relationship through the lifestyle. Way is eager to learn everything, and more in love with his master every day. For his part, Neal can’t believe how lucky he is to have found such an innocent but sensual boy.

As they learn what works best for them both, Way has trouble obeying some of the rules Neal imposes. Like the no touching himself rule. Neal wants Way to learn control, but Way, after so long holding back, has trouble not indulging. The two men must work together to find the balance that brings them each the most satisfaction and happiness.


Review: This book was easy to follow; but it would be more enjoyable if the reader was more familiar with the other stories as well as the other characters.  It would be easier to follow along with the secondary characters and how they fit into the story and the main characters lives.  This is a gay BDSM book, just in case the reader doesn’t know, and isn’t into this type of genre.

Neal was a strong and very tender Dom.  He has lots of experience as a Dom and has a lot to offer the right man.  He was more into Way needing him to guide him through his difficulties in his life.  He wanted him to depend on him so that Neal could support him, emotionally.  He eventually wanted to move their relationship into a d/s dynamic, but trust needs to be earned and given freely.  Without that, it isn’t going to work, and Neal and Way both want it to work.

Way was young emotionally as well as chronologically.  He was used to doing things for himself and not depending upon others so depending on Neal and asking for support was a very difficult thing for him to do.  He’s very new to the lifestyle and needs to be trained on protocol so that he doesn’t embarrass himself or Neal.

Their courtship into a relationship seemed to happen already as they are at the beginning stages of their relationship.   This book was about their journey into trusting each other, depending upon each other, and respecting each other not only as a Dom and Sub, but also as each other’s lovers.

I enjoyed this book a lot.  I like reading about a sub learning the ropes of the lifestyle and their Dom teaching proper protocol and manners within the lifestyle.  I also liked how their relationship grew throughout the book.  Neal and Way learned how to depend and communicate with each other.  I love that.

Give this author a try, his work is very good.
