Hot Dom, Cold Sub by Stormy Glenn
Rafe, a very serious dom, wants Danny the minute he spots the sexy little man dancing at Club Floggers. Rafe is used to getting what and who he wants.

When Danny refuses him, it sends Rafe into a whirlwind of arousal and confusion, especially since he knows the little submissive is interested.

Can a Christmas auction give Rafe what he needs, or will it leave him wanting more?

Dominate Me by H.C. Brown
Nash Mage, a six-five, leather-clad ball of muscle, is living on the edge. Damien, his control freak of a sub, left without a word. Teetering on the bounds of control, Nash finds his BDSM world beginning to disintegrate. He wants what every dom craves—a sweet, innocent sub he can train to fulfill his every desire.

When Paul Martin enters Floggers' Christmas Auction looking for his first BDSM experience, Nash thinks all his Christmases have come at once. Young, barely legal, with a slight build, Paul is just the way Nash likes his subs. Nash wants this delicious man with a passion—so do the other doms. If Nash secures the winning bid on Paul at Floggers' Christmas Auction, will he get to keep his prize?

Two great authors one great anthology. That is exactly what Flogger’s Holiday Sale provides. With the sexy men they are selling, everyone is sure to buy up the merchandise.

Hot Dom, Cold Sub by Stormy Glenn

Rafe and Denny’s story was a great start to this anthology. Rafe is a dom who is accustomed to getting any sub and the occasional dom that he wants. So he is immediately smitten with Denny -- a sub that turns everyone down. Well of course that will not do for Rafe and he makes it his mission to bring Denny home with him. Rafe doesn’t realize he has bitten off way more than he can chew. In this game of cat and mouse it can sometimes be confusing on exactly who the mouse is.

Denny not only mesmerized everyone at the club but also me as a reader. He is really is the perfect sub so you only want to see him happy. His determination is the quality that really shows from beginning to end. Once he commits he definitely commits for life no matter what. There are a few times in a story that I think I would have left Rafe, but not Denny. In the end his determination is really what allows him and Rafe to be the perfect sub and dom.

Dominate Me by H.C. Brown

Nash definitely is Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. He is on one emotional roller coaster and decides to take Paul along for the ride with him. Even with the emotional turmoil Nash is one hot dom. There is just something sexy about a man who can dominate the bedroom yet has no problem cooking and cleaning. Plus he has some interesting piercings that anyone would want to play with. I have to say that if I meet a dom like Nash I would have no problem licking his leathers.

The plot in Dominate Me played off of the first story perfectly. It was interesting to see the difference between the two dom’s and sub’s. This plot focused more around Nash’s mending heart and whether there was room in it for Paul. Luckily for Nash Paul came equipped with a first aid kit to help with any wound, even the emotional ones.

The only weakness that I found in this anthology was a few typos. For instance in Hot Dom, Cold Sub the blurb refers to the sub as Danny, but in the story his name is Denny. Also a few words were misspelled within the stories. These small weaknesses were not enough to disrupt the story, but did need to be mentioned.

The way these two stories were tied together is great. These authors clearly unified to create one two amazing stories. It is something that I have never seen before between two authors in an anthology and it is definitely a rare jewel. Both stories could have stood on their own but to read them back-to-back in this manner made them that much sweeter. Anyone with an appreciation for BDSM stories will cherish Flogger’s Holiday Sale.
