Not the best "Hammer" novel out there, but not bad, either. It just wasn't very ... original? Most of the characters in the Hammer series have things that separate them from the others, makes them different through and through. With Matt, I kind of felt like he wasn't much more than just another Dom; he didn't stand out. He wasn't dramatically different from his sub, he wasn't particularly large or have any characteristics that made him- *him*. He just ... was.

As for Adam, he was as particular and unique as could be. On the surface things seem perfectly fine, well-balanced, until Matt starts seeing more of Adam's regimine and realizes that no, things aren't exactly good most times. There are issues with neurosis and eating issues, insecurities, and he pushes himself too hard and to the brink of a breakdown quite often. The introduction of Matt and his handling of the situations left a good feeling that yes, Adam would now be taken care of properly, etc etc.

Back to Matt and the 'relationship' itself, there weren't many actual scenes that involved both characters together. Adam is a professional sub and you really don't get what that means until about halfway through the novel, and because of his being hired to do scenes with other Doms, Matt specifically avoids doing anything scene-like between them. It was kind of disappointing and put another just kind of bland layer over it.

Now ... had a few of the repetitive sex scenes been taken out, and the couple followed through their move and through a good few scenes of the BDSM training B&B they were going to set up - I have a feeling that would have just put an awesome-dawson cherry on top.

Since it didn't? ... meh.
