it was ok
bookshelves: gay-erotica

It is Halloween, and BDSM Master Christopher is a lion tamer who is on the prowl for a beast to tame. Instead of finding himself a lion, he meets Travis who is dressed as a kitten. The couple hit it off, dance together, and then Christopher takes Travis to one of the plush rooms in the back of the club. They have sex and Christopher introduces Travis to the whip.

This story did not have a BDSM feel at all, in my opinion. The so-called Dom was not in the least bit dominant. Instead of laying claim to his sub, he negotiated with him. The Dom also kept calling his sub “kitty”, which I think was supposed to seem endearing. To me, it was unrealistic and a major turn-off.

I didn’t get the impression that this story represented BDSM. At the very most, it was a roleplay scene. Even the sex had me yawning. The writing and editing are strong, but it’s definitely not my kind of story…and DEFINITELY not my kind of BDSM.
