Trust me. Two simple words. Easy to say, harder to give, and once lost, nearly impossible to reclaim.
Five years ago, submissive Jordan Lewis made the mistake of placing his unquestionable trust in his Dom, Gabriel Rhodes. Gabe only needed five minutes to uncollar Jordan and leave his heart in pieces. It took Jordan five years to retrieve those pieces, and one night to lose them again. Gabe's back in town and he doesn't just want to bring his lost boy home, he's also asking for the one thing Jordan can't give again.

Gabriel Rhodes must die. This is my decree. In LOST BOY, Jordan Lewis is a submissive who finds a master that meets everything he wants. Gabriel is the perfect dominant for Jordan. They trust each other and Gabriel wants Jordan to be his boy forever. Jordan believes the big day is here for them to commit, only to have Gabriel remove the collar with absolutely no explanation.
The conflict in this story is all too real and very frustrating. Ms. Voisen captures what happens to those in the lifestyle when their privacy is threatened. What bugs me about this story is how Gabriel responds. He doesn't communicate at all what is going on to Jordan. He just disappears. I understand this is a plot device to generate angst and a plausible conflict. It doesn't appeal to me because of the character who is disappearing. As a dominant who is supposed to be this great one, he should have decent problem solving skills to be able to find a better solution. Then again from a character building perspective, this shows how even good dominants are human and make grievous mistakes.
I still enjoyed this story because I liked Jordan. He's a submissive who's been badly burned yet he still possesses a positive outlook. He's just more cautious. The BDSM in the story is decent and light. The chemistry between Gabriel and Jordan is good as it is a mix of yearning and regret. When they get back together, it is sexy hot. This m/m romance is recommended for kinky readers who enjoy angst and second chances.
