Sometimes the perfect man can be found in the most unexpected place….
Martin Carmichael owns a security firm and is part owner of Club Whisper. He's a Dom in search of the right guy, and when his car breaks down on a lonely stretch of road, he thinks he might have found him.
Artist Collin Malloy is talented, easygoing, but somewhat insecure. Still, he has a big heart and is quick to offer help when he sees Martin in need. To thank him, Martin invites Collin to dinner, where the attraction between them becomes harder to resist.
But what will become of their budding relationship when Martin reveals that he likes his men bound, submissive, and in pain? Is it something Collin can accept… and possibly enjoy exploring? Even if he can, Collin has a secret of his own—a secret he doesn't even realize he's keeping.

Sweet and seductive, Martin Carmichael lures the elusive Collin Malloy from his secure fortress. New-to-me author, Ms. Melzer sucks me into the tale quickly and thoroughly. Her characters are adorable. Specifically, Collin Malloy tugs on the heart strings of most readers. He may come across as flighty and physically looks like a twink, but he is so much more. He is an artist who sees the world in a different way. His creations open a window into his world and it is breathtaking.
Ms. Melzer does an amazing job of character creation when she came up with Collin. He is definitely memorable. He is painfully shy and socially awkward because his focus is on experiencing life, interpreting it and then displaying his translation. Beautiful. This young man can easily be taken advantage of and it seems he does need someone to help ground him in our reality. Martin is the perfect lover and Dom for Collin. He is protective and a knight in shining armour. Their chemistry together is toothachingly sweet.
Their sexual interludes are beyond words. Since Collin is new to it all, it is a refreshing view of a man reading to explore his sexuality. Seeing from both perspectives may inspire a reader to jump their lover. The kinky fun in this book is light and enjoyable. It is as if all the harshness in Collin's life is softened through his new relationship with Martin. I loved it.
The story is well written and the villain is easily deduced and the ending, whilst not a surprise, is still a happier turn than anticipated. This erotic romance is recommended to m/m readers who enjoy new relationship themes.
