O COME ALL YE KINKY is a fabulously hot, Christmas-themed, BDSM anthology.
Tree Topper is a story of finding and defining roles in a new relationship. Martin is insecure in his new role as a Dom, which is making his sub, Stan, feel lost. When the two reach a breaking point they finally open up to each other and their honesty brings them to a place of happiness. I enjoyed the insecure Dom part of this story- not something often seen in BDSM books.
‘Twas the Night was a very enjoyable to read as it addresses the age old dilemma of feeling guilty about your own desires. Percy doesn't realize it, but he needs Michael's help in feeling comfortable submitting to another man. Michael asks that his Christmas gift from Percy be vocalization of his desires, which turns into a gift for both of them.
Fireworks is a story of blocked emotions. Rachel and Emma have been together, long-distance, for two years. Rachel is careful to keep emotional blocks in place for fear of being hurt. Now that her job is taking her out of the country she has an excuse to end things with Emma before Emma ends them with her. But Emma is in love with Rachel and heart-broken that Rachel won't open up emotionally and allow their relationship to go further. Their last New Year's Eve together forces the two of them to examine their feelings and their relationship.
Candy Caning was a more playful story about Stephen torturing his sub, Nate, with the threat of using a large candy cane on him in the bedroom- which Nate is very much hoping for. The two are both dreading their annual visit to Nate's family so the thrill of something new in the bedroom keeps them both distracted.
Submissive Angel is a sweet story of a new relationship forming in the midst of past hurts. Robert is nervous about taking on a new sub after his last relationship ended badly, but he can't deny his attraction to Ange any longer. Ange has made it obvious to Robert since the first night they met that he would like more from their relationship but he patiently waits for Robert to come around.
Open Return is a story of "going home." Zach abruptly left his hometown, his family, and his two lovers. Now, fifteen years later, he returns in hopes of finding whatever piece of him has been missing this whole time. Zach, Laura, and Scott had a wildly sexual and explorative winter as teenagers; Zach leaving deeply hurt and surprised both Laura and Scott. Zach's return is even more surprising and stirs some buried emotions. The redevelopment of this relationship was very well written.
Ring Out the Old and In the New was sad and sweet. Evan and Russell are struggling with their relationship ever since Evan was attacked and hurt by a mugger. Evan believes everyone sees him differently since the attack and the subsequent scar left on his face. He is dealing with some deep-rooted fears that he needs his Dom, Russell's, help in overcoming. Thankfully, Russell is up to the task.
His Very Last Chance is about redemption. What Drew doesn't realize is that his Dom feels he is the one who needs redeeming. When Kingsley overheard Drew telling his friends that Kingsley is totally unromantic, Drew feared he had screwed up and lost Kingsley forever. In reality, the comment made Kingsley realize that he needed to do a better job of showing Drew how he really feels or risk losing Drew.
All of these stories were sweet and fantastic and so much fun to read. A great collection.
