Isn't he freaking glorious?! I couldn't be happier with how this cover turned out. Such a long and arduous journey to get Max just right but thankfully, after all the sweat and tears, it totally paid off. Huge props to Jorge Freire for the stellar photography work. I could not have enjoyed working with him more. No lie. He was absolutely fabulous and I can't wait to work with him again. And of course, to Jay Aheer for her ever incredible cover art magic. The woman never ceases to amaze me.
And now for the blurb!
Love buried his heart in the cold, hard ground. Now he’s fighting to keep it there.
Love. The most powerful force in existence, but also the most ruthless. Cunning and deceptive. Man’s greatest Achilles heel. Leaving all who embrace it weak and vulnerable.
At least that’s how Dom-for-hire Max Kelley sees it, after the love of his life knocked him on his ass. A brutal blow that not only stole his breath, but decimated his ability to trust. Turning him cold and cynical. The TKO he never saw coming.
Love. A mistake Max won’t ever make again.
Meaning no more relationships—not exactly a hardship. Just the thought of dating makes him queasy, and one of the reasons he doms for a living. To sexually engage without the poison of intimacy. The other reason? To keep his demons sated. With whips and chains, and scandalous kink. A fiery mix that always hits the spot.
That is, until a bright-eyed beauty walks into his life and refuses to leave.
Sean Matthews. College senior and flirt extraordinaire. Max’s newest—and greenest—client sub. Man, is he delicious; able to push Max’s buttons, able to make him crave the things he knows he shouldn’t. Sound the alarm, this can only mean trouble. Unfortunately, deterring Sean proves virtually impossible, and now Max finds himself at a crossroads.
Man up and kick his favorite sub to the curb… or succumb to his own caged desires.
