The Rules of Summer
The hardest part of being a sub is giving your heart and body to the right Dom.
Master Ford is a consummate Dom, always focused on giving a sub the most important gift of all—safety. When a friend leaves a sub in a dangerous situation, it is up to Ford to both rescue and care for the boy. What starts as duty swiftly turns to personal desire.
Cody is new to the lifestyle, trusting and in need of protection and control. When his Master puts him in danger, he can only hope that the Dom sent to save him is worthy of it.
Ford has rules, and one of them is no poaching on another Dom’s sub. But Cody is different. This boy needs to learn what it really means to put oneself under another’s control. Teaching him that valuable lesson, while bringing them both indescribable pleasure, becomes a temptation he cannot resist.
Reader advisory: This book contains mention of verbal and emotional abuse of a sub and a scene where a sub is left alone.

BONDAGE AND BDSM
This novella was tough to read, really tough. The fact that a sub was left as he was, was really hard to read. It was in the warnings, but still.
I also didn’t feel like there was enough time to address how Cody could or should deal with it. Honestly, with this topic, it would have been better to almost write a longer story to ensure Cody, who I felt so bad for, received in full the care he needed, not just for the few days that it happened to be, but for the long term.
I did enjoy how much trust he put in Ford, but I couldn’t see how that was possible under the circumstances.
