While I’ve read a few of the other books in this series, I’m not quite caught up, but I’m skipping ahead to this one because I’ve loved the author’s previous work. And look! There’s hockey, ice skating, lots of good food, and a very sweet cinnamon roll Dom. Tom seems to attract all the wrong guys – Doms who don’t treat him right, who equate submission with humiliation. In frustration, he posts an ad at Bold Brew looking for a new Dom, but even with […]

I received an arc from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I requested this because Anna Zabo is […]
Bothari43 has been very kind to me this Book Exchange season. She sent me three ebooks – Anna Zabo’s Syncopation (sorry about your search algorithm), Tasha Suri’s Empire of Sand, and Lois McMaster Bujold’s Beguilement (The Sharing Knife). In addition to that largess, I now have a lovely cephalopod print and a 5 year daily journal of questions and answers. I am so excited!
