Willis Rice has been a Dom for over ten years, but he has yet to find the perfect submissive to share his dark desires. Maybe he wants too much. He's looking for the whole package—a partner, a lover, a man who will trust him enough to surrender body and mind.

Wil goes to an underground sex party and finds the submissive man of his wet dreams. His flogging sends Aiden to subspace, but before Wil can bring the boy back, Aiden is taken away, and Wil is escorted out of the club.

Aiden belongs to someone else - the powerful police chief, Arthur Wright. Wil knows he should walk away, but he's hooked. He can't get Aiden out of his head, and he'll do anything to get his hands on the boy again.

Wil Rice wasn't exactly looking for relationship when he visited the underground sex party.

Author Gale Stanley delivers a quick read with THE RULES. Wil becomes intrigued with an untrained submissive but Aiden is brutally taken from him. When they meet again it's under a completely different set of circumstances. Can Wil help Aiden handle a new set of rules?

What it lacks in length is more than made up for in hot spiciness. This was an interesting story since it featured BDSM elements between two men. Wil and Aiden mesh well together, providing a good example of the Dom/sub dynamic.

If I could make any suggestions for improvement, it would be to build more depth. As it is, the explicit encounters overshadow the storyline. Not they aren't well-written, but a bit more substance would have been fantastic.
