ok...unabashedly...unashamedly...I love this author. She is like candy to me--or lollies as the Aussies would say--a sweet treat every time!
Bret (aka the brat) follows Marcus, an unattached Dom, day in, day out until Marcus finally decides to play. And oh my how they play. First off Bret was just a ball of fun and snark and sweet sexy submission and Marcus was all Dom--hard and stalwart and slowly but surely falling in love.
I loved the interplay between these characters. One of the many things Kim Dare does well is dialogue--she makes her characters smart--sassy--and never unbelievable. A dom is just that--a Dom--no namby-pamby "Sweetums" here. Marcus makes the decision to love--he doesn't "fall"--he decides and you get a little thrill when he does--because it is so strong--so sure and, thus, so believable.
Once a Brat takes us on a witty and intelligent journey of what makes a DOm/Sub relationship tick. It is packed full of fun, a little sass and lots of hot, hot moments.
A five star read for me!
