Hot Dom, Cold Sub by Stormy Glenn

Rafe, a very serious dom, wants Danny the minute he spots the sexy little man dancing at Club Floggers. Rafe is used to getting what and who he wants.

When Danny refuses him, it sends Rafe into a whirlwind of arousal and confusion, especially since he knows the little submissive is interested.

Can a Christmas auction give Rafe what he needs, or will it leave him wanting more?

Dominate Me by H.C. Brown

Nash Mage, a six-five, leather-clad ball of muscle, is living on the edge. Damien, his control freak of a sub, left without a word. Teetering on the bounds of control, Nash finds his BDSM world beginning to disintegrate. He wants what every dom craves—a sweet, innocent sub he can train to fulfill his every desire.

When Paul Martin enters Floggers' Christmas Auction looking for his first BDSM experience, Nash thinks all his Christmases have come at once. Young, barely legal, with a slight build, Paul is just the way Nash likes his subs. Nash wants this delicious man with a passion—so do the other doms. If Nash secures the winning bid on Paul at Floggers' Christmas Auction, will he get to keep his prize?

Hot Dom, Cold Sub by Stormy Glenn

Wanting something and not getting it isn’t easy for anyone – but for a dom like Rafe, it is unheard of. Danny ignores his advances and that almost drives him crazy. So much so that he almost doesn’t know what to do about it. While he copes well externally by pushing until he has ‘control’ over Danny for a week, internally his increasing need for Danny leads to him denying that it’s there. What he does as a result almost costs him any hope of building a future with Danny.

Danny is as strong as Rafe. Even though he likes to be the submissive partner in the bedroom, his determination to gain Rafe’s attention, hoping it will lead to more, is unbreakable. Until Rafe hurts him so badly he’s ready to give up hope for a future. I loved how he stood up for himself where it really counted.

I really liked the dynamics between these two partners. One of the few Stormy Glenn books without a mate bond or supernatural influences, this story fascinated me because of the psychology involved, the emotional bond these two men had from the very beginning - even if Rafe continues to deny his as ‘weakness’ not becoming a dom until it is almost too late. While there is a lot of physical submission/domination going on, the emotional and psychological motives underlying the actions are what really held my attention.

Dominate Me by H.C. Brown

Nash isn’t sure what he’s looking for, but when he sees Paul he’s far more interested than he’s been in a very long time. Even though he’s one of those doms who think that he has a ‘reputation’ to maintain, I liked him more than the usual ‘I’m tough and cold’ type of guy. Maybe it was because he was honest with himself and his new sub. His biggest mistake was underestimating the effect his seeming devotion to a previous lover would have on his new sub.

Paul is walking into a potentially dangerous situation, without any real experience. He knows Nash has a reputation for being abusive, so he plays it carefully. I like that he stands up for himself, and that he doesn’t let Nash walk all over himself.

The developing relationship was interesting to watch – not as cold as a few I’ve seen, but not
overly emotional either. It still managed to hold my attention, and I ended up liking the story more than I thought I would. A good read if you’re looking for a sub/Dom relationship with just a touch of feeling.
