Doyle Turner's a psychologist specializing in addiction recovery and is a professional sober companion. He's also a recovering alcoholic with over twenty years of sobriety under his belt. And he's a Dom in his personal life, which he hasn't had much of lately. Mevi Maynard not only tests Doyle's infinite patience, the handsome rock star's testing his self-control.
Mevi Maynard's rock-bottom crash follows the discovery that his manager stole his fortune. Now, Mevi's fresh out of rehab. If he doesn't want to file bankruptcy, he has to stay sober for the new tour or he's out of the band. But what he can't admit to Doyle—and has never admitted to anyone—is that he's gay.
One patient Dom. One stubborn rock star. Both are really stupid men, according to their friend, Tilly. Can she help the men get out of their own way and see the light, and their love for each other, before it's too late?

Doyle's job is awesome! I'm not a fan of shrinks, but Doyle could definitely change my mind. He is a psychologist who finds a niche market for himself. He is a one-on-one coach for actors and rock stars. Specifically, to get them into clean up whilst still working and staying out of the media limelight. I can not begin to fathom how difficult this must be. Because most actors and rock stars are spoiled brats who need a good spanking. Doyle definitely fits this job description because he is also a dominant. He may use a few of his dom traits to bring wayward stars in line and back under control. I have to admit, this is pretty darn sexy and I wouldn't mind a little one-on-one time with Doyle. This book can be read as a standalone but it is more fun if some of the earlier books in this series have been read, specifically ones where Tilly has a bigger part.
Mevi Maynard is a rock star who is suicidal and an alcoholic. This does not make for a good combination. The problem for Mevi isn't just the fact that his manager stole all his money. It is the fact that he is a closet gay man. He hasn't even told his closest friends, his bandmates, that he is gay. All his little groupie females he's been with think he is an awesome lover because he pleasures them and then makes a quick getaway. When Mevi is taken in hand by Doyle, he acts out and sulks. When Doyle uses his domly voice to bring Mevi to heel, it is a pleasure to watch. Through patience, Doyle coaxes out Mevi's dark secret and shows him how it is okay. It is not the end of the world. When Mevi finally lets out his secret, there is a bit of falling out that could completely break up the band.
Whilst Mevi is sobering up and learning he's a submissive to Doyle's dominance, there are other games afoot. Specifically a backup guitarist brought in by another band member. The plots against Mevi are heinous and only through Doyle's protective actions is Mevi saved. This tale goes through ups and downs through complications that are not all of Mevi's doing. Through all of it, the kinky D/s is spot on and panty-wetting goodness. When Mevi and Doyle finally get back together, it is sweet and the happily ever we wanted to see. This kinky romance is recommended to m/m readers who love their happy endings.
