I was always going to like this story - I enjoyed the first two books in the series and I love the authors - and I wasn't disappointed. Was it perfect? No. Was it hugely enjoyable? Yes!

This is the story of Scott and Ben. Scott is very young and extremely naive and innocent, having lead a sheltered life in the US. He heads across the globe to Manchester, without money or clothes, to meet up with Jeff, a guy he met online. When Scott is stood up by Jeff, Ben just happens to be at the airport in Manchester and takes him under his wing.

At first I was worried about Scott's youth and whether he was being taken advantage of. Although eighteen he had been home-schooled and had no life-experience. He did not go out much, had not friends and didn't even watch television. But the story handled him very sensitively and the development of his relationship with Ben was a slow journey.

Ben is a barman at the Collars & Cuffs club and he is supporting his mother by paying for her to be in a home for the elderly. He has limited money which makes him reluctant to look after Scott. I liked the way this lead character was not the typical rich Dom but rather a 'real' everyday-type character. I must admit that Ben didn't seem very Dom-like at first but he really was a wonderful match for an innocent such as Scott. This is not heavy BDSM with only a few scenes including some exhibitionism.

I'm not a huge fan of the first person but I liked the alternating POVs. There were a few plot holes or events that were unexplained or unlikely but this really didn't bother me. I just enjoyed getting stuck into the story and waiting for Ben to wake up to himself - he was infuriating at times - the events at the 90% mark were surprising!

Highly recommended, particularly if you've read the earlier books in the series as the characters from these books feature in Someone To Keep Me.
