For vampire Gabriel “Gabe” Santini, being in love with the only trained male witch in a female dominant society is not an easy thing. Seiran Rou has more issues than just a phobia of commitment. A recent rash of attacks and harassment at school has left him withdrawn and edgy.

Making a cake for his mother was never really about making Tanaka Rou happy, and Seiran wears his

3.5 stars

After one long novella and one free short story written from Sei's point of view, I wholeheartedly welcome Gabe's perspective. It brings me closer to see him as a character -- and I come to love him even more, for his deep love for Sei, for willing to do anything to make Sei happy, and for continuing to hope that Sei will say that he loves Gabe back. Just lovely ...

I really loved getting Gabe's POV this time, I just wish I could have learned more about him instead of about Seiran and his mom.

But the sex was soooooo hot!'

This was another great addition to the Dominion world. Not just because it gets deeper into Seiran's problems but because it is told from Gabe's POV which made me feel even closer to him. I loved that he can put a smile on Seiran's face even when Seiran is at his worst with the OCD. It's heartbreaking that Seiran is still trying to get approval from his mother but I'm glad Gabe is there when Seiran needs him the most.

This was a great little read. The frosting fight was...Hot! As well as the shower scene that followed. I like how this was written in a way where it is easy to imagine what is happening in your head, it's easy to follow and the characters are well done.
Okay - another really short story that makes me want to read more about Gabe and Sei. They are two very interesting characters. I'm going to buy Inheritance, book #1 in the Dominion series today.

Very sweet short told from Gabe's point of view. This one delves a little deeper into Seiran's issues, and we see another side to Seiran and Gabe's relationship.

Good short m/m paranormal romance about male witch Seiran, who's preparing to bake a cake for his mother's birthday when his sometimes lover stops by.

The second short-story prequel to Lissa Kasey’s Dominion series, this time the story is told from the point of view of Gabriel, Seiran Rou’s older (well, ancient, given that he’s a vampire) sexual partner, a couple we are introduced to in Friction. We learn about Gabriel’s deep love and concern for Seiran, who has moved to an off-campus apartment to avoid bullying, as well as Seiran’s OCD tendencies and his need for his mother’s approval.

The sex the two have together in this story is hot, if a

This is in essence a teaser for a novella Inheritance which is coming from Dreamspinner Press in October. It is also a little slice which requires you to read the blurb, as much of the back story to the couple is in the blurb, although even then I was left with more questions than answers. Gabe is watching over Sei who has been attacked, beaten and nearly raped while living on campus and has now moved to his own apartment. Although they seem to

Another short story about Gabe and Sei and their somehow undefined relationship. In this story, Gabe's offer to help Sei prepare a cake for his mum's birthday turns into a really sexy experience for both. I cannot wait to continue discovering this really interesting universe.

I actually liked this novella quite a bit. It was a great quick adult read. Very adult. I recommend that no one under the age of eighteen read it. I would have loved it if Decadence had been a full length novel because I found Sei's character very interesting.

My only complaint is that it was a "vampire" story. I use that term loosely because even though I love vampire fiction, this one didn't really seem vamp-ish. With the exception of vampire tendencies thrown in here and there, the vampire cha

No one should have to work so hard to seek approval from a parent... True.

...but the only thing I could really do was be there to hold him, no matter what happened. *sigh*

Again, an excellent teaser that is just really whetting my appetite for the full novella.

Update June 2014

Re-reading these so I can continue with the series.

How fun to get Gabe's perspective in this one, and therefore learn much more about Sei than he would ever reveal himself.

And what a delightful use for frosting. ;)

Favorite Quotes:
Sometimes his heart was so large, and hanging so loosely on his sleeve that it made me just want to wrap him up in my arms and cuddle him until the sun rose no more.

Someday he'd realize all the times I spent with him were just little bits of love all s
Unbelievable: Gabe's voice is actually different from Sei's. I am amazed.
This is the first time we hear his voice as a narrator, and I loved it. On the inside, he's just as protective, lustful and loving as he looks from the outside.
I still have a little problem with the writing (My precum leaked between us, like a dam getting ready to burst - you mean your precum is a dam? How does that even work?) but Inheritance is perfect in every aspect IMO, so I think it's just the short stories that are a

I really liked that this short gives a peak into Gabe's point of view of Sei... and it was a sweet, sexy story.

3 1/2 stars!

I really enjoyed the three short stories that start the Dominion series. Friction (0.1), Decadence (0.2), and Resolute (0.3). They whetted my appetite for the novellas to come in the series. There were a number of typos but when it’s a free story you can’t be too picky. Hopefully the published for pay works have been edited more carefully. I’m eager to see how things turn out for Sei and Gabe.

Favourite Character: Gabe

This one was okay. I find myself wondering about some of the things that are mentioned... It seems like I'm missing something and that annoys me. I'll give 0.3 a read... I doubt very much the series is worth buying.
adult , mature ,gay material.Not one of my favorites I most add.

Sweet. A good teaser for the upcoming longer story. We don't know much about Sei's mother yet and I already feel sorry for him. To be told you were not wanted and you are not good enough by your own parent is wrong.

= I may not read it again but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

A extra story about how Seiran makes a cake for his mother with some "extra" fan service.

These short teasers are worth reading before you get into Inheritance because they clear up some questions about Sei's and Gabe's relationship.
I liked this short story so much, I've gone and purchase the rest of the series. I LOVE Gabe and have high hopes for him and Sei.

A nice short story about Gabe and Sei before the events of Inheritance. (There's sex in this one, unlike Friction.)
