Everything is going well for badass dom, Nash Mage, and his sweet sub, Paul, until Nash does a favor for Rio, the owner of Floggers' BDSM Club.

Expecting Paul to trust him implicitly, Nash's world falls apart when he finds his confused, innocent sub in the arms of his nemesis, Frank. Teetering on the edge of sanity and out of control, Nash is looking for revenge.

What do you do when the love of your life passes you by?

I love a little kink in my reading and this book certainly delivered. But beyond the physical relationship between Nash and Paul, there is a ton of heart. H.C. Brown writes complex stories and this one is certainly complex. Fact is, I had a hard time writing this review. The situations in the short little bit of this story are not for the faint of heart. I read Flogger Holiday Sale: Dominate Me and I really enjoyed the relationship between Paul and Nash. I loved that I got the chance to see them again.

The Dom, Nash is the tough guy. No one crosses him. He’s got a reputation to live up to. I liked that he was so up front and blunt, but I actually found myself more than once not really liking him. The crux of the book is a situation that, while I understood Nash’s need to go through with it, I didn’t like it. Trust me, I’m not keen on vanilla Doms, but I seriously wanted to grab the guy by his meaty arm and bop him on the head. As much as that sounds like I didn’t like the story, it’s quite the opposite. The fact that I was so emotionally involved is the mark of a good story in my opinion. And yeah, I thought about him far after the last page of the book.

The virgin, Paul, has only ever been taken by Nash. He trusts Nash. Really. The trust is a plus and minus for this man. I can’t say it was fun to read the series of emotions Paul goes through in this story. There were moments where my heart bled for the guy. Again, I thought about him long after the last page and if I could’ve stepped into the pages, I might have.

The sex in this story both repels and sizzles. Confused by that statement? Well then you need to read Love Revisited: Nash and Paul to find out more. I’m not telling any spoilers, but I guarantee it’ll be worth your read.

Thank you for your great review. I have not finished with Nash & Paul or Floggers BDSM Club. I'm working on a new story now. A novel length this time. :-)
