⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️! On His Knees (stand-alone) Master Alex breaks in & corrupts the club’s newest member Jamie!

“Alex didn’t know whether to smash his head against the nearest wall for giving in to the insanity of playing with someone who was this inexperienced. Or to get down on his knees and thank whichever god was responsible for giving him the chance to be the one to break Jamie in.”

On His Knees (stand-alone) is centered around the exclusive BDSM club, Blasphemy. After a break-u

1*Stars for the last 15%.

On His Knees is a quick read. Everything happens over a span of a few weeks. We're talking about insta-love. The kind of one that didn't sound dumb to me because Jamie and Alex really were a match made in heaven, at least I felt that way.

So, we have Jamie. After many failed relationships and on the verge of his 30 years old Jamie had an epiphany: he’ll never be satisfied with any woman until he admits what he needs…to su

Wellllll this sucks.

I had high hopes going in since I'd read (and really liked) Kaye before plus kink! It's glitterkink though which I should've picked up on from the blurb. My bad. Glitterkink is not my jam. The protocols and honorifics were tolerable and it wasn't overly BDSM 101 but still... glitterkink. I like the subversiveness of the club being a former church, though. That made me titter. Blasphemy indeed.

There is one force play scene that was bad wrong in the best possible way. Many th

I’m in this happy reading mood at the moment where I like almost all the books. So it could be when I reread this at another time I will like it less, but for now, I liked this.

Jamie is 29 years old and can’t figure out why all his relationships seem doomed from the start. When his last girlfriend breaks up with him, he is tired of the never ending cycle of finding a woman to start a mediocre relationship with.

When he gets tattooed, his friend who is tattooing him calls him a masochist. And that

On His Knees was the fourth book in Laura Kaye’s Blasphemy series.

Alex McGarry was a Psychiatrist. Alex was one of the co-owners, Master Dominants and a sadist at Blasphemy, a BDSM club. He had been one of the founders who loved the life but lately, at forty, was feeling unsettled and unfulfilled. He wanted to settle down but couldn’t find a submissive that fit.

Jamie Fielding was an attorney and was just coming off another relationship failure where he couldn’t figure out why he felt so empty in

I haven't read any of the other books in this series but I don't think it made any difference to be honest.

This book was hot as a volcano but it also had a deep emotional connection between Alex and Jamie which was delightful to read. The author also extends a gentle hand when dealing with the BDSM as it can sometimes be difficult to get across the need for the pain and humiliation.

In this, Jamie is resigned to never finding the deep emotional connection he sees others having in their relationsh

BEST OF THE SERIES! God, I absolutely LOVE this series! Laura Kaye has done it again! She has brought ME to my knees with her latest installment in the ever-so-SEXY Blasphemy Series! ON HIS KNEES tells the story of self-discovery, acceptance, and forgiveness. From the very moment Jamie and Alex locked eyes, SPARKS FLEW and I was a complete goner!

Jamie's relationships always seem to end in disappointment. It's after breaking up with his latest girlfriend that he finally forces himself to examine what he's been missing. The answer: pain. Jamie suspects that he's a masochist.

Holy smokes…On His Knees by Laura Kaye completely blew me away. THIS BOOK….wow, seriously I have no words. Yes, this book is not your conventional cookie cutter romance but WHAT THIS BOOK was about was exploring and seeing a different kind of passion. A passion and intensity that explores BDSM on an emotional and physical connection. I don’t want to spoil the book but I will just say this love story is about finding yourself and acceptance.
I've been a fan of Laura Kaye's writing for years now and I'm pretty sure I've read & loved everything she's ever published but I have to say her Blasphemy series is probably my favourite. She manages to create such intense emotional connections between her characters and they always have such fantastic chemistry. Throw in the BDSM elements and these stories just get hotter and hotter so even when the kinks the characters take part in aren't necessarily ones I'd be into myself I never fail to en ...more

Everything was fine with this book, albeit ridiculously rushed, until the ending. I’m not sure how much MM romance Kaye writes, but Alex committed the worst LGBTQ sin (rushing someone’s coming out. Ok, the worst is outing someone, so maybe the second worst sin). Warning, discusses ending in detail so full of spoilers.

Jamie discovered his sexuality a hot minute ago. He is also exploring a new kink. It’s been two weeks since he first set foot in the club and for the second week he’s been at home v

IMO this book demonstrates manslaughter of a good idea. Such a shame because On His Knees could have been a fantastic book. So what went wrong? Lots I think and for the sake of my sanity I’ll just list some of them. For a start the author rushed everything and I mean everything, there was little character development, insta love, diving in at the kink deep end, coming out with no resolution, a psychiatrist who behaved like a twelve year old having a tantrum and the most pointless epilogue I’ve ...more
This is a novella, so obviously things happened at warp speed, but the sexy was hot, the men were endearing, the big miscommunication and its resolution caught me in the feels and did I mention that the sex was hot?! ;)

This book falls in the middle of an M/F series and has a brief scene with characters from another of Kaye's series (Hard Ink), but you won't be lost if you only read this one.
Feb 15, 2018 rated it liked it
It's a well written book and for the first sex scene, it's pretty hot and well written if you can suspend disbelief that anyone would engage in their first male anal sexual encounter in that kind of role play and that a psychiatrist would participate in that even if he is a sadist. After that, the sex scenes are all implied without any real detail except for one more short public scene. However, they do have sex everyday for 5 days, we just only get told about how hot it was, we don't get to be ...more

A beautiful story by a one-click author, and look at that cover! Hot, hot, hot.
Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

To say this story is hot is like saying Mt. Everest is a hill. And it is far more a short story than even a novella. But having said that, it is still a good read.

Alex, a Dominant and Sadist, is approaching 40 and feeling the lack of having a special person in his life. When a scene with a female submissive goes bad, he realizes how lackluster his life has gotten-until Jamie walks into his club.

Reeling from a breakup with his girlfriend, Jamie has just come to realize that he is a masochist-and
Laura Kaye, I don't even know what to say about your Blasphemy series any more. Each book moves me on an elemental level and makes me fall in love with love all over again. I always say that the one I just finished is my favorite, but it is I have an ultimate favorite, I think I do, but I can't help but love each book little more than the last as I get to know these amazing characters and their search for love and happiness.

4 stars. Well that was entertaining. Very hot and dirty smut which I loved and the characters were pretty great until they both became dumbasses at the end there for the sake of having a last minute breakup that was extremely unnecessary and forced.

I liked Jamie and his determination to learn the lifestyle and what exactly it is that he likes and I liked Alex quite a bit. It's a really short book so everything happens fast, which I didn't mind because the writing was strong and the chemistry be

This was fabulous. The gorgeous cover and blurb drew me in, but the story grabbed and held me until the end. The author did a great job helping the reader understand the mindset of both a man newly realizing both that he's a masochist AND bisexual as well as a sadist Dom who is growing lonely and weary of the way his life is going. Their chemistry was instant and explosive.

The way the inevitable conflict was resolved was beautiful. It actually brought me to tears, as I was so invested in the cha

A light-fun-well written-sexy read. I Started this book with some serious trepidation. But I liked it. Both MC’s were strong and knew their mind. I wanted an epilogue but as this is a series i can see why there wasn’t one. I liked the ‘scenes’ in this book as it was consensual and both of them was really in to it. No hard and sour after effect feelings for readers.

On His Knees is my very first venture into the world of Laura Kaye and I must say, I’m more than glad that I’m hopping on this train before it was too late. I had no idea how much I was truly missing out on! This book was deliciously provocative, filthy and so very edgy. It was a quick read, yet I still found myself so wrapped up in everything going on from start to finish.

So far the books in the Blasphemy Series have been short, sweet, super hot and surprisingly emotional. When I saw the synopsis for On His Knees, I only hesitated about a second when I saw it was M/M and leaned towards the S/M side of BDSM. That’s a bit out of my comfort zone, but I knew Ms. Kaye would make this work, and boy was I right.

Right from the start, I loved that Jamie wasn’t some immature child of a man looking for a Daddy figure to rein him in. I’ve seen that one too many times in BDSM

I'm very picky on which erotic romance I buy. I don't want to book just for the sex, it still has to have a story and a romance. Otherwise it's just porn, which for some is fine. But for me, I want a little more.

When I started the Blasphemy series I wasn't sure which way it would fall, story with sex or just sex! Happily after reading the books in this series I have found that it's a story with some very heavy sex

This is the fourth book in the series - and I definitely recommend you read them all, as they are excellent. The 12 owners of Blasphemy are being awakened to love as well as their kink, and finding how their desires and demands can be matched. Alex is about to get his turn ...

Sweet lord, pardon me while I turn up the air conditioning a bit, it's H.O.T. in here. Or maybe it's the heat coming from my Kindle from the super sexy, smokin' hot On His Knees.

Seriously. I could not flip the pages fast enough to see where things went with Alex and Jamie. Their heat and intensity leaped off the pages from their first meeting. I mean really, the scenes between them were no holds barred, dirty, and so damn sexy. But they also had an amazing connection too--it wasn't just the sex
