Somehow Josh has to convince Chris they are perfect together. But first, he needs to figure out who has been sending Chris malicious letters, threatening him over the phone, and writing hateful slogans across their front door—and persuade his own ex, who seems determined to win Josh back, to get lost. In fact, Josh’s life may depend on it.

Nicholas Sayers ha bisogno di denaro per poter frequentare gli studi e si fa assumere come assistente da un famoso fotografo, Damian Wolfe. Deve solo aiutarlo a fare fotografie, giusto? Sbagliato. Nick non si è mai fatto domande su se stesso, su che tipo di uomo possa essere e cosa voglia veramente nella sua vita, ma lavorare per Damian durante scatti di foto BDSM gli apre gli occhi su ogni sorta di possibili esperienze sessuali e molte di queste includono il bellissimo Damian Wolfe.

Damian ha dei seri dubbi nel lasciarsi coinvolgere in una storia con un giovane che non conosce niente di ciò che riguarda lo stile di vita BDSM, ma lo spirito di avventura di Nick e il suo umorismo nell’approccio con questa nuova esperienza sono troppo affascinanti per poter resistere. Nonostante si renda conto della possibilità che possa essere un errore enorme, Damian coinvolge Nick in quella vita.

Destreggiarsi al limite del proprio controllo, la sottomissione e il dolore eccitano Nick più di quanto avrebbe mai pensato fosse possibile. Grazie a Damian, impara a conoscere i propri desideri più nascosti e scopre che cedere il controllo di se stesso non lo rende debole. Concedere il controllo del proprio piacere sessuale a qualcun altro aumenta il suo piacere. Il contrario è vero per Damian: il controllo lo eccita. Così cominciano a esplorare insieme i loro confini verso la sensualità, non aspettandosi di trovare l’amore lungo la strada.
