Dylan hadn't been planning to get back into the BDSM scene anytime soon, but when an old friend hands him a ticket to the exclusive Club Chained, he can't refuse. As a PhD student in Medieval Studies, the implements of torture in the club grab his attention, as does the sexy and captivating man in the mask, the Dom every sub grovels to have. The masked man, who calls himself Tomas, had long since given up hope of ever finding the perfect partner and lover who could share all aspects of his life. When he sees the handsome Dylan, Tomas dares to feel that hope, but will revealing his true identity to Dylan destroy the love and lust that's been building between them?
Three words: Hot, hot, HOT! What could be sexier than a mysterious man in a mask? Only a sexy Dom in a mask, along with an endearing sub who must overcome his own fears to become the perfect slave.
Details are excruciatingly well done and believable, and every scene is filled with variety and hotter and sexier than the last.
But it's not all just about the sex; it's about two men that are willing to go to extremes to test themselves and each other in order to reach the perfect life they've only dreamed of. The scenes hit exactly the right buttons to make this fulfilling and satisfying on both emotional and physical levels.
All in all, Masked Submission lives up to the desires Ms. Thompson expresses in her bio, to "exalt in the true beauty and spirituality of a loving exchange of power." A wonderful exploration into the midnight world of BDSM, and highly recommended for all those who love men in intense relationships who find pleasure in pain.
When Dylan Reese first sees Tomas, the sensual masked Dom at Club Chained, he instantly feels the connection between them. Falling under his dark spell, Dylan is unable to resist his commands, baring his body and his soul for his masked lover. In an intense exchange of sensual power, Dylan submits with an honesty and a passion he's never known. He finds himself falling hopelessly in love with a stranger who can't or won't reveal himself.
Dr. Jack Marchand, a professor of medieval history, is smitten the moment he lays eyes on Dylan, the green-eyed PhD candidate he is mentoring. As their friendship blossoms, so does their trust — freeing Dylan to confess his submissive orientation while Jack admits his naturally dominant impulses. A tumble into bed after too much to drink convinces Jack he must possess Dylan on every level.
But just as Dylan is captured by a fantasy, Jack is held prisoner by a secret of his own creation. Jack finally realizes the only way to liberate Dylan's heart is to confess what he has kept hidden from the world.
