This small collection of very short stories is like a BDSM 'sampler' for those curious about the range of dominant/submissive play. All the stories revolve around the submissive Nicky and his dom Devon, or 'Sir' as he's almost always referred to. Each story focuses on a different type of interaction, such as asphyxiation or knife-play. Some of them can be a bit difficult to read.

The stories are stand-alone, and don't provide much background on the two men or how they got together. In some cases, the action is joined in the middle, so we're not even shown how the two got in the particular situation. Also, while there's a lot of sex-play (or foreplay, if you will) there's not a lot of actual sex in the stories.

None of this are really a big negatives. It's more like the BDSM play itself: a big tease. It leaves you wanting more, which is apparently just what the author is delivering later this month: a new book featuring the same couple called "Master Class". I've already pre-ordered it.
