I’ve been looking forwad to Dorian’s story. I knew there was more to the character than being the resident pain slut at Collars & Cuffs, but I never expected the reason for his search. He’s looking for something only one man can give him– Alan, a bit of a sadist. He gets off from making Dorian suffer, in a really loving way. That sounds odd, but once you read Make Me Soar, you know what I’m talking about. Dorian needs it, the being kept on the edge, denied pleasure, until he can let go and feel. I can honestly say I never read such a good book about a sadist, about someone who likes to see someone suffer, but loves him on the other side and does it for his partner as well.
What was a bit stange for me was that Alan started very soon after Dorian got hurt to play with him. I understood why it was necesary, but for me, it was rushed. In my eyes, he would’ve needed more time to heal, come to terms with what happened. He gets some time, but it still felt rushed.
That makes 4,5 Stars from me
