Chris, the Dalek King
Walking into his boyfriend’s house and finding said boyfriend ass deep in someone else’s…well, ass, was not how he wanted to go about popping the ‘moving in’ question. But with a little revenge à la shrimp and determination to bury everything under a pile of high-grade steak, Toshi sets out to forget the horrible, no good, downright boring relationship with Ian.

When he has to fire a longtime employee for being drunk, belligerent, and having an alarming tendency to throw heavy objects around Jase

The storyline was good and the characters interesting, but the narrative style just uninspiring. There were too many instances of minutae delineated that dragged it down and the ending was a quick boxing up with an obvious lead-in for a follow up book with two secondary characters. It was a nice story, just not engaging.

This was an enjoyable read with characters and a relationship that felt real. Toshi and Jace meet by chance due to a reservation mix-up at a restaurant. Toshi invites Jace to dine with him and the two men hit it off quite well. Both men have been hurt, most recently Toshi who just caught his boyfriend cheating on him. Toshi soon realizes that Jace can offer him the dominance in the bedroom that was missing from his past relationship.

The two men are nurturing both their friendship and

Parts of this story were told with excruciating detail and others were brushed over so quickly I thought I missed a page or two. I was going to give examples but they were too spoilery.

Wrapped in Leather by M.A. Church began with an interesting story arc and a tense build up of action and continued for over three-fourths of the novel. By juxtaposing the developing D/s relationship between Jase and Toshi with the mysterious stalker side story, the author gave us an exciting story line that is both sexually charged and steeped in mystery. I felt that Church used her characters wisely, exploring both the submis

The story was interesting enough to get me to finish it. The writing was a bit off for me, I got especially aggravated about the use of the word 'gods' - according to my kindle it was used 127 times! The stalker storyline was build up nicely, only to fizzle out in the end.

'Wrapped in Leather' by M.A. Church is only the second book by this author that I've had the pleasure of reading. Since the first book I read was a fantasy/sci-fi, jumping into a contemporary romance was a lot of fun. Inasmuch as I'm a fan of BDSM and I enjoy reading new authors (to me) of the genre, the appeal of this book was multifaceted.

Toshi wrapped around me right from the beginning. I have a weakness for teachers as my mother was one, so Toshi being a high school world history t

Toshi knew his current relationship with Ian was far from perfect but little did he know how bad it was until he opted to surprise Ian with dinner one evening. When he caught Ian in bed with another man, Toshi knew that it was well and truly over for him and Ian and not a minute too soon. You see there was far more wrong with their partnership than simple cheating. Toshi had needs—a very profound need to be dominated and Ian simply could not deliver. Set adrift and wondering if his lov

I had never read any works by M. A. Church prior to reading Wrapped in Leather but it will definitely not be the last time I read this author. I thoroughly enjoyed this story along with Toshi and Jase. Both men were strong in different ways and they complemented each other wonderfully.Ms. Church gave us a well written story that felt sexy and real. I loved Toshi and totally enjoyed his offbeat method of vengeance. Even through his pain I found laughter; however that is not to say that Ms. ...more

MA Church offers up a tale of self-exploration and acceptance with Wrapped in Leather. I liked that the story didn't revolve around the usual type of characters you'd expect in a bdsm tale. Both men felt real, and that aspect is vital in this type of story. No one knew everything, no one was perfect... but Toshi and Jase worked together to find their happiness. I had a few quibbles as I usually do, lol, but they didn't detract much from my enjoyment of the story. I certainly enjoyed the false ...more

This was a nice enough story. There was something missing though. Lots of little detail in parts but then the ending was quickly wrapped up. The title and everything pointed to a BDSM book, and this was but it wasn't as "Dom/Sub" as I thought it would be.

I appreciate getting detail in a story but there was an awkwardness to the timing of the detail that just didn't flow well. Then when we needed more detail or more to the story, like who is causing trouble for the men, we don't get it.

Not every book is going to appeal to every individual. The same can be said about reviewers. Just because we are given a book to review, doesn’t mean we are necessarily the right person to review said book. That is what happened with Wrapped in Leather, and how I ended up reviewing it. I am actually glad that happened, because I quite enjoyed the story and was introduced to a new to me author at the same time.

Review written for MM Good Book Reviews

This is a story that combines romance and kinks nicely. Easily to read and follow the storyline we get to meet two characters that are quite charming. I’m a fan of kinky reads and, while sometimes they are quite heavy, this one managed to keep with a light-hearted feeling throughout the plot, even as things got a bit complicated and danger lurked down the corner...

There wasn't anything wrong with this story but at the same time there wasn't anything to eye catching either. There was one problem that was outside of the MC relationship but otherwise Toshi and Jase met and fell in love pretty easily. Despite the fact both guys had some bad break ups neither one was carrying to much baggage which left very little in the way of drama. There was some good sex scenes and I really liked Toshi's sometime bratty yet submissive character alot, I just wish there ...more

The ebb and flow of the characters was done well. Taking an inexperienced submissive is no small feet. It was done with careful planning and heart. Boundaries were set and respected. The flow of the story was smooth and even.

The crazy was underlying and handled with finesse. The twist caught me off guard. If you are looking to read about the stars lining up and fate bringing two hearts together, you will find it here.

I really enjoyed this book and the story. Toshi and Jase meet at a restaurant when Jase's reservation is messed up. Toshi invites him to eat with him and they have a great time.

Toshi likes the things Jase makes him feel and they form a relationship.

When Toshi's life is disrupted Jase is there for him.

I like the story and it is written well.

It was okay but didn't impress me and I don't think it will be a re-read. The writing was adequate but I didn't feel anything for the characters. The BDSM was nicely presented but I would have preferred more in the club.

A fun but unmemorable romance.

The BDSM aspect was not really a big part of the story. I don't think the Dom/sub relationship was explored as much as it could have been.

Toshi and Jase were a cute couple though.

1.5 stars - Word flow wasn't the best, and the story/characters didn't resonate with me. This one just wasn't for me.
