In the Heat of the Moment
In the Heat of the Moment was a good, quick read. I was not ready for it to be over. I wanted more of the characters that I was getting to know.
Shawn pulled on my heartstrings throughout the entire book. He doesn't think that he's worthy of having an all the time master, for the most part. He doesn't want to disappoint them but feels that in the end he will. Brett is happy with the level of Shawn's submissiveness. Brett doesn't want somebody that serves him all the time. Shawn is confused and worried about giving in and trying because he cares so much for Brett. Brett also cares just as much as Shawn. Reading about the two of them beginning to work out their feelings was great.
I wanted more of the characters. The story ends well, with the characters willing to try out the relationship and on the way to falling in love with each other. I wanted to continue to follow their journey, but the novella ended.

Shawn's not a submissive and he doesn't need to be rescued from doing exactly what he wants. Now all he has to do is find a way to make Brett believe it.
Twenty-one, naturally submissive and absolutely stunning, Shawn is obviously out of his depth at a hotel catering to serious dominants. As Shawn's boss, Brett knows it's his duty to step in and rescue the younger man - especially since he's been keeping his eye on Shawn for months, waiting for just the right moment to make the younger man aware of his latent submissive desires. He's not about to let Shawn fall into the hands of another dominant.
Shawn might have a huge crush on his boss, but that doesn't mean the guy has a right to "rescue" him from doing exactly what he wants, or to warn every interested dominant away from him. Shawn might enjoy rough sex with dominant men, but he's no submissive, and he can look after himself. He's not about to forget that, just because Brett makes him wonder if submitting to him could be different to submitting to any other man he's ever met.
