Even within the context of the Underground BDSM Club, Joshua’s desires are dark and extreme. Hopelessly addicted to pain and the high it gives him, he has no limits. Joshua would quite literally rather die than use a safeword, and he accepts that might be his fate. As much as he depends on others, he has yet to find a man who can gain his trust, and he has little hope that he ever will.
For Nash, acquiring Joshua from another Dom at the club is only the first step in what will be a long and arduous road to lure the young man back from the brink of self-destruction. He must do the impossible and win Joshua’s trust, and he must be the one to set limits in their exploration—something he’s unaccustomed to as a Dom. But Nash knows dominance doesn’t always mean pushing a submissive’s boundaries. It’s about establishing a bond and fulfilling another man’s needs. In Joshua’s case, he’ll have to strike a balance between meeting the young man’s expectations and drawing firm lines that will save Joshua from himself.
This book is good but if I am being honest it is a sad story. The things that Joshua has been through only came out in small glimpses but what did come out left no doubt that he has not had an easy life.
Most of the Dons at the Underground did not want to take on Joshua because he scared them with how much pain he wanted and how he would not use safe words. He has very few limits to what he won’t do and the biggest issue is if he thinks someone wants him to do something he will because it pleases them and even if it is something he does not enjoy, well he would never say so.
Pretty much from the moment that Nash laid eyes on Joshua the first time Joshua’s old Don Troy brought him to the underground, Nash has wanted him. When the opportunity arises he does not think twice about taking him in as a full time sub.
Nash knows that joshua has some issues that he needs to work through and he hopes that he will be able to help him. What I do not think that Nash realizes is the issues that Joshua carries around are very deal seeded. There. Are times that both men have questioned if they are still doing the right thing in their relationship as Fom/Sub and their are times that they have had to take a step back and reevaluate everything.
What matters most is the end is they are still together at the end of the day even with doubts that sometimes linger.
It is definitely a rough journey these two men are taking and honestly it does not feel like it is over even though the book is over. I really hope there is going to be more about them in another book because I feel like this book was really just the tip of the iceberg for these two men. It feels to me like they still have more of a story to tell. Or at least I hope they do. S.J.D. Peterson def has a way of sucking in the readers. This book is the perfect example of that. It may be a book about BDSM but it was a story about so much more. That is what made this book so good. I can’t wait to the next book in this series.
