The blurb:

“Simon is jaded. His bookstore is failing, his personal life is nonexistent, and he’s tired of the local scene. He’s desperate for a change, and hopes to find it at Escape, the hot new BDSM club in town.

What he finds there is Gavin. One look at the sexy submissive is all he needs to know that his trip to Escape was the right decision. And their night of no-holds-barred kinky sex feels like only the beginning . . . until his promising new sub vanishes with the dawn.

Then Gavin walks through the door of Simon’s bookstore—for business, not pleasure. To both of their surprise, he’s the consultant Simon hired to help save the store. As they work together, Simon realizes that he might have another shot at happiness, if only he can convince Gavin that he’s worth sticking around for.

Publisher's note: This title is a heavily revised re-issue of a prior story, Commanding Acquisitions, originally released in 2010.”

My thoughts:

The Dom Around the Corner is a very hot, short and rather sweet story about two men who desperately need each other and are afraid to give into that need because of past experiences.

The reader really only gets to see how well these two men connect together when they play. Although they do spend time together outside the dungeon or bedroom and they do get on there, the pull between them is far less obvious. Mind you, the three encounters we get to witness leave the reader in no doubt these two men belong together. While I wouldn’t have complained if we’d spend more time with Simon and Gavin in different situations, I can’t bring myself to complain about what we did get to experience with them; hot doesn’t begin to describe it.

If you’re in the mood for a well plotted hot story about two men who clearly belong together and the journey they need to take before they are able to admit that, you’ll enjoy The Dom Around the Corner. There’s some angst, but not too much and not drawn out – just the way I like it. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Gavin and Simon.
