You do not need to have read the previous stories about Master Preston and Paulo to enjoy this little short, but I believe they are well worth checking out. They were a couple I stumbled upon when I was first discovering BDSM and it was quite different from what I’d found. There was no smug Dom stomping about ordering a fluttering twink to lick his boots and paddling his butt for being bad, it was more of a gentle dominance tempered with a lot

This is a cute, yet thoughtful, story about Preston, a Dom with health issues, and Paolo, a loving sub, who is desperate because he thinks his master doesn't want him anymore. It is also, and this is the thougthful part, about what true D/s is really all about, and it isn't all physical.

I first read this story in April 2009, when it was part of Toy Box: Beads, and I'm glad I was reminded of it now that it's out as a single story. If you like reading about unusual D/s relationships and how loving

Enjoyable and poignant short about a Dom with arthritic hands confusing his sub by acting distant and uninterested. I haven't read the others in the series but I think I'll check them out, as this was well written and touching, as well as having a hot sex scene once Preston figures out how to get around his problem.
