    ~Yep, that confirms it. I *still* have zero interest in the *B*, the *D*, the *S* or the *M.*I requested this book entirely by mistake, meaning to ask for a different ARC, but decided that maybe my aversion to BDSM was a bit too rigid, so I decided to give this one a shot.Well, I made it through about 40% of the book, but it's a DNF for me, so yeah, standing by my previous stance of "No BDSM for Todd", sorry.-----------I tried my best, but it went something like this: Read, read, read. "Ummm, I [...]

    ~3.5~This is my first Violet Summers book, and I quite enjoyed it. The writing is tight and flows well. I like friends-to-lovers and enemies-to-lovers stories, and Light a Candle is a combination of both. Dustin and Will were childhood friends and continued to casually hang out in high school until an electrifying moment in the weight room had Will running for the hills. Hurt and feeling betrayed, Dustin swore he'd never lose his heart again, a vow he kept for a decade. Ten years later, Will is [...]

    2.5 starsPossible spoilers below.This was a tough one to rate. I liked some parts, but others not so much.I think my main issue was that I just didn't understand Will and Dusty's love. The whole story is based on what happened between the two a decade ago in high school. But the fact is that absolutely nothing happened ten years ago. Yes, they crushed on each other, but they weren't best friends, they didn't spend a lot of time together, and their feelings for each other were only expressed in o [...]

    This novella is hot on more than one level. There is the relationship, or lack thereof, between Rob and Michael, who are both desperately trying to get what they think they need. Tempers flare and emotions run high enough to keep me glued to the pages. Then there is some very hot, definitely kinky sex with wax play as the central 'activity', if you can call it that, which links the two main characters physically and emotionally. Since their main issue is around trust, this is a very fitting tool [...]

    3.5 stars. Good kinky m/m romance about a jock who was in denial in high school. Ten years later, he's a Dom and no longer in denial when he runs into the guy whose trust he abused in high school - the guy who now works as a submissive at Club Velvet Ice.

    I really enjoyed this contemporary M/M BDSM romance novella.Dusty and Will were schoolmates who had a friendship--until Will felt a yearning for Dusty and it freaked him out. Dusty has always known he was gay, and he held a tendresse for Will until Will froze him out. It was a crushing experience, one Dusty still remembers after ten years.Now, Dusty is a club submissive, as well as a graphic designer, and Will has petitioned to join his club as a new Dom. Dusty wants nothing to do with Will, sti [...]

    I was a bit underwhelmed here. Violet Summers is a current favorite and I'm reading as much of her work as I can, starting with all the M/M selections, so this short story was kind of disappointing. Too short to generate much heart unfortunately.

    Quite disappointed with this one as I had high hopes from the Riptide blurb. More backstory, more heat, more connection, more passion required from the writers, although the final submission scene was quite tasty. 3.5 stars from mepity.

    Ok, so, as previously stated, unless you're specifically in a scene where the words 'stop' doesn'tactually mean stop, a good, real Dom always listens when their sub says stop, even if they have a safeword, or use the stoplight system. They don't punish them for that. And yeah, this is fiction and blah blah blah but I'm seriously so upset about that. I'm literally giving this book a whole star less for just those few lines where Dustin says stop, because he doesn't want wax in his hair, not knowi [...]

    *** 3.5 stars rounded up to 4 ***Light a Candle is a feel good story about two hot guys with history. Their friendship goes all the way back through school and high school, but came to an abrupt and uneasy finish when a pass was made and rebuffed.Now ten years later both men are comfortable with their sexuality and they meet at Club Deviant when Will auditions for membership.One unexpected moment of passion between them, and Will freaked out and Dusty resigned himself that Will was neither gay, [...]

    Will and Dusty have a history from back in high school but things didn't go so well at the time. But now they have a chance to face the past like adult with fresh eyes. Now they just have to be willing to work through everything to have a new start.

    I liked this story. It’s a second chance romance, between a Dom and sub. The wax play scenes were gorgeous. Bought from riptide.

    2.5OK, to start with, until I came here to write this review I didn't realize this was a fourth book in a series. I would never have picked it up if I had. I generally avoid latter books in a series, even if they are stand alone. But it's read now and, who knows, maybe I would have liked it better if I'd read the previous three books. Maybe not, because I don't know that my complaints resulted from anything related to the series itself.Now, I don't want to infer that I didn't like the book, just [...]

    Light A Candle is a hot m/m novella which I enjoyed reading. It's a second chance love story with a BDSM twist, and as you can probably guess from the title and cover, most of the BDSM scenes are based on wax play. I've read lots of wax play scenes and I have found most of them a little dull - but the scenes in this book are far from dull! The wax play is sensual, detailed, varied and oh so hot!Dusty and Will we're friends in high school, but when they were eighteen they had an awkward sexual en [...]

    This one started off a bit rocky for me, because the flashbacks to ten years ago were very short and very close together, and the time swapping was beginning to cause me some concern, but that is fortunately when they ended. (I think there was only one after the point I started to get frustrated, which was 11% in.) The flashbacks were all done in the first quarter of the book, and then the rest was all current day, with Will trying to make up for freaking out ten years before and ending his frie [...]

    Reviewed for The Novel Approach. I did not read the first edition of this book, from which this one has been expanded, so I cannot compare the two and discuss how much has changed. However, I can say that I did enjoy this one and felt it was well-written and just the right length.Going back and forth from the past to the present, Light a Candle reveals the history of Will and Dusty’s relationship. From their senior year in high school where a small moment of passion leaves Will running in the [...]

    A Joyfully Jay review. 4.5 starsThere was so much about this book that I absolutely loved. The two MCs are so very well drawn and we get to see their thoughts, character, and motivation very clearly. The writing is tight and sharp, each word having a purpose and nothing wasted or overused. The plot has wonderful pacing, never a lag or a rush to be seen. Though I did have a few quibbles with some of the plot points, overall it was a very well written story.Let me start with Dusty because he’s t [...]

    This review was originally written for The Romance Reviews and can also be found there. In this short story about second chances, we get to meet Rob and Michael, two men with a shared past and too many unresolved issues between them. The story starts and stays in the BDSM world of pain and pleasure, where submission has to be given as well as earned and dominance requires a bit of planning to be willingly allowed.When the two meet again after ten years of living on memories, the reunion is almos [...]

    I wasn't sure what to expect. The guy on the cover is hot, but neither of the guys on the cover corresponds to the men in the book. And the book itself, while mercifully short, left me cold. The BDSM is its raison d'être, and even this is sort of vapid, compared to some of the blistering literary BDSM you can get for free on certain websites I don't feel quite comfortable publicizing, regardless of ’s rules about such conduct. The sub loses all credibility through an entirely tenuous backstor [...]

    Hot damn! This was terrific! Dual POVs, lots of lovely man sex, phenomenal writing and a kick-ass plot. Will and Dustin knew each other as kids but in high school, didn't necessarily hang out with the same group. Dusty was out but not overly so and did experience some bullying. Will was popular, hung out with the cool kids and considered himself straight but the two do occasionally hang out. Seems that Will had been having thoughts and after a particularly sexually fraught moment with Dusty in a [...]

    I’m working on expanding my reading – this time with LGBTQIA Erotica. As you can tell from the cover, it features wax play as well as a D/s relationship between a couple of men men with history. It’s a history that makes it very hard for Dustin to trust Will, and trust is the basis of a workable D/s relationship. Dustin definitely leads Will on a merry dance while Will tries to earn that trust again.I really enjoyed seeing these two try to figure out how they can relate as adults. They had [...]

    This whole novella is set in one night, one club, multi scenes together. Once Will and Dustin realize that ten years later they are in the same place, wanting the same thing, all bets are off, all things are forgiven and it’s time to learn each other like only a D/s can.The scenes these two did together were sensual and hawt, and you could tell, the caring for one another was there at least a experienced Dom towards an experienced sub. But past that, it was hard for me to get to know these two [...]

    Because I love m/m BDSM books (especially those heavy on the D/s), I automatically assume I’m going to love any new book that matches that criteria. This one didn’t disappoint, but there were a few quirks that kept it from being a higher rating. I didn’t really like Rob’s attitude. It seemed like he treated Michael as more of a conquest than someone to cherish in this type of relationship and it really grated on my nerves when he called him “Mikey”. The book left off in a bit of an a [...]

    My Review:Ten years ago, Will blew it and Dustin never quite recovered from his betrayal. Now they've been thrown together at Dustin's BDSM club where he's a sub. Will is now a Dom who embraces who he isl those things (gay AND kinky) that he couldn't accept about himself ten years ago. But he really hurt Dustin back then, so Dustin can't trust him nowe key to a sub/Dom relationship to work. The thing that hasn't changed is their incredible chemistry. They both desperately still want the other. T [...]
