A group of rich masters swap their leatherboys back and forth with cheerful abandon. Then one master meets an arrogant boy who needs to be taken down a few knotches.

I have to admit that this trope – which was first popularized in the late 1970s through Mr. Benson, by John Preston, who in turn stole much of his material from earlier writers – is not my favorite BDSM storyline. Maybe it's because I'm such a realist that I expect the masters to be arguing over which master's protocol the boys shou

I wish I were one of Dr. Fell's boys ;-)

I treated myself to the three collected paperbacks and dived headlong into the stories. Love the world that's been built here. It's a fantasy world in a way, but a gentle, sometimes melancholy one, flashed through with humor and beautifully written.

Am I the only one though who wonders if Rob would really have been the perfect boy for Fell if he'd have lived? I'm not sure.

Argh!

Why did I wait so long to read this? This was excellent, in every way.

Why did I not buy all the paperbacks at one time? Now I have to wait for the next one to arrive. *sulks*

Why not 5 stars? Because there are a few editing errors and a couple tense discrepancies that pulled me out of the story. Yes, I can be nitpicky like that. Deal with it. Or not.

I love this book! I read one heck of a lot of M/M stuff and this stands out in the crowd. It provides an accurate, realistic portrayal of 'power exchange' relationships (D/s) and the meaning they have for those involved. I like Dr. Fell because he's human, flawed, trying his best to deal with grief and has friends around him who are both true and loving.

This isn't an instant gratification novel(though there is plenty of sex to keep it floating if that's your interest). It's a biography for a fi

Outstanding book. I put it up there with the deviation series. You have Dr. Fell who is a Dom. He is like a teacher to other subs and Doms. It is his life and all the ups and down. I truely got into the characters. I have even emailed Dr. Fell to find out when his next book will come out.

Very good writing and intriguing characters

Warning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS.

Rating: 9/10

PROS:
- Very well written. Very. I probably reacted more delightedly toward the abundance of English professor-related pithy remarks than most readers would (I teach college English), but the writing is just spot on. I tend to earmark pages that contain particularly clever comments and/or well written sentences, and I had to stop doing that with this book because there ar

I have to say that I found Dr. Fell a little whiny but he grew on me. I was frustrated at how he was stuck in one place and not moving past the death of his partner. Yet he kept putting himself into situations that could only end badly for him. Again and again he'd get attached to someone else's boy only to have to watch them go back to where they belonged. Over all this was a well written book, and Dr. Fell is a very realistic and well developed character. Even though Dr. Fell was frustrating a ...more

This is one of my favorite series. Although not truly indepth the characters are well fleshed out and likable. The author does an excellent job keeping the reader interested throughout the book and leaves you wanting more. The writing style (first person present) is sometimes rough but it fits the stories within. I did feel left out in some spots wondering what happened to a few of the boys after they left the cabin. I understand these questions are answered in; The Boys Of Fell which I have yet ...more

I'm a writer of queer erotica -- mostly m/m and D/s.
I live with Beloved Joe and the evil kitten clan.

I fled Thatcher’s England in the late 1980ies, and have lived in the American Midwest since then. Frying pan and fire come to mind. Back in the UK, I ran a record store (ah vinyl!). Since coming to America, I've taught college, edited at a small publishing house, researched and written background r
