Are you willing to put yourself in our hands?

Smart, successful, handsome, and thoroughly sick of the club scene, Don ventures into a popular upscale dating service. Aroused and intrigued by the boldfaced sexual queries on the Romeo Club’s application, he finds himself embellishing one answer after the next. Don thinks he’s taking control of his fate, but when he’s done, he

This book certainly keeps what its blurb promises: surrender of control leading to some interesting experiences. Don sets out to gain control over his (dating) life, and ends up learning that control isn’t everything. With a sense of humor that made me smile and a level of curiosity that would have killed a cat (but, luckily, not Don) he explores what it means to be taken care of, and how much a few surprises can enhance his libido.

Don may not know this about himself, but he is more than open to

Deliciously wicked!

Don is looking for a dating service. We meet him while he's filling out a questionnaire about his sexual wants and kinks. He thinks there's nothing wrong in a little embellishment and at the end he probably gets more than he was aiming for.

The narrator's first person point-of-view is very entertaining. Donnie doesn't take himself too seriously and he has a curious (and adventurous) nature. Even if the book is basically one long sex scene, there's much more than the simple mech

Those of you who don't get the reference, know that I am extremely picky about BDSM ... well actually I'm extremely picky about everything but EXTRA picky about BDSM. I don't like too much violence. I don't like weepy, powerless "submissives". I don't like big burly bears. The fantasy has to be just so and when it is, it has my undivided attention.

I loved this. Sure, there were a couple minor annoyances (hard time with a Dom who uses the words "dude" and

This short chapter was like a prologue for a new book. It was interesting but other then a sex scene there was nothing here. The characters were bland and to undeveloped. I wouldn't mind reading more.

Wow, that was a hot little number. An excellent first-person POV story where the majority of it is spent blind-folded. *fans self* =)

Don- The suit. Looking for something a little different in his life these days. He’s on a sexual quest. We find him taking a visit to the Romeo Club, looking for that something different. Hmm, let’s see how far we can get with the application process. He has no idea what he’s signing up for. Hehe. *Mutley laugh*

This is my first Brita Addams story. Quite frankly, I’m sitting here wondering… why. If this story is indicative of a Brita Addams book, I have been missing out.

This hot little number grabbed me page one and I couldn’t put it down until I finished which was a bit of a problem since I made the mistake of starting it at work when I thought I had a spare moment. I ended up needing to lock the door because it definitely fell under the category of “don’t bother me I’m reading” and “too hot for the of

I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that - short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer... but it is a short story. So with that said.... here is my review..

I received this book for my honest thoughts and words... So here goes!

This story comes in under 30 pages. I have to say that Ms. Brita Addams is a new to me auth

It’s true, this is only a short story, barely a sex scene; it’s true it’s mostly about the sex and that is usually not my cup of tea; it’s true, it’s not a romance, even if I can see an interesting future for Don. But despite all the above trues, I found myself truly enjoying this fast reading, and yes, it was also arousing, a clean cut sex scene with the right amount of kink but also with some “sweet” touches (see the kisses and the cuddling).

Interesting read. Amazing to be able to give 4 stars to something so short.

The thing is, the story is very good. It basically evolves around a guy, Don, filling out an application for a dating agency, for a fuck. The receptionist, Aaron, (aka helluva blowjob) says someone would like to talk to him, as he has interesting tastes. Why not? Don pretty much says he's up for anything, hell I'd like to 'interview' him. Blake does indeed 'interview' Don, and from there it is one long sex scene. A very w

This was hot. I gave it a 3 star because I enjoyed it and wished it were much longer. Well, it's probably a 3.5 star but I always truncate, not round.

Donnie is delicious and I can't wait to read more about him. Aaron sounds like a twink though. I'm not sure if that is insulting, but it isn't meant to be. What I really want to read is what goes on behind the doors now that Donnie's part of the club. Woohoo. I'd like to be "interviewed" by Blake too. Darn I'm not the right sex. Woe is me.

Very enjoyable short.

Surprises didn't give this reader a hint at the direction of the series. It could be the continuation of Donnie and Blake's relationship or maybe each installment introduces us to a new MC and their experience with the club?

Either way, the author captured my attention; I'm game for more.

Don signs up for what he thinks is a dating service. It turns out that his answers give him a special try-out by the owner of the service. This is pure BDSM sex. It works well. Quick, interesting read. I look forward to more of the series.

Hot and steamy quick read about a guy who goes to interview for a dating site and ends up getting way more than he bargained for. Nice introduction to the Romeo Club. Could have been longer, but the price is worth it. Looking forward to the next installment.
Fun story. Quick and to the point without being too heavy. I enjoyed it for a short story and the price was right.

I loved this! It comes out of the gate running and gets right to the point. Don heads into what he thinks is a dating service where the men running the establishment discover that Don is just the kind of guy they would like to initiate into their club. Don has no idea what is he looking for and is really open to just about anything and when he meets Blake he discovers there is a very ready sub just below the surface that is giddy to come out.

Don is great! He is super passive without being a pus

This is an extremely well-written and well-paced short story, that just wasn't for me. It's a glitter-kink fantasy scene between a man and two strangers, and it does a great job of it.

For my fiction I'm looking for something to think about, hot sex, or romance. This wasn't thought-provoking, the sex was just same-old, same-old, and of course, as the author, says, not romantic in the least.

I'm not rating the book, because it's not the author's fault I didn't like it. I bought the story without r

This story is incredibly shallow. There is no character build up. The background is glossed over. Although there is BDSM involved, it is really only implied whilst the single sex scene is described in detail. I have purchased the sequel but I'm not all that motivated to read it. This took me 10 minutes (if that) to read & I couldn't even remember what the character's names were. Forgettable & there is much better out there.

I'm not usually into bdsm but this one was a pretty good short read. The MC's were really into it and there wasn't anything really hardcore happening. It was nice and hot.
