Series: Tales from the Edge #5
Published by Pride Publishing Genres: BDSM, Contemporary, MM
Unlawfully confined at the Clinic by his ‘anti-gay’ guardian uncle, Kai Smithson is rescued after becoming acquainted with another trapped patient Alistair offers Kai a safe haven at The Underground, a premier London BDSM club. The owner is Alistair’s Dom lover and happy to aid his recovered sub’s new friend. It’s clear to everyone there that Kai is a born submissive though no one there will push him into anything.
The young sub lights up when he sees bar manager Harry Croft at work. Apparently the feeling is mutual as Harry instantly agrees to open his home to Kai until the young man decides to confront his uncle.
Intrigued by the BDSM lifestyle and bursting with questions Kai accepts an offer from Harry to learn what it is to be a submissive with the bar manager as his teacher. An apt pupil from the start Kai is obviously meant to belong to Harry. Making strides towards a happy future an ugly past makes an ill-timed appearance to rear a very dangerous head.
Tales from the Edge returns for a fifth bold drama in Rough Around the Edges. Innocent, naïve Kai is the perfect partner for stoic, forceful Harry. Gently guiding the submissive into the BDSM lifestyle, the characters draw closer and gain a stronger understanding of each other. By and large a tender introduction for readers and Kai to think about. Author L.M. Somerton pens another sensual, intelligent, and riveting tale. This series does not disappoint.
