Alex meets James in a very uncomfortable situation when James catches Alex with James' (soon to be ex-) boyfriend. As it seems both James and Alex are intrigued by this encounter yet it takes James two weeks before he comes to see Alex in the strippers club.
From their first interaction James realizes Alex is into submission/following orders which is exactly what he is into. This is the part where I usually ask myself - how far will it go.. I'm not very patient with BDSM. But in this one it was sweet to watch, James loved taking control but only while they were having sex (there were very few none sexual scenes between them which felt very sweet and homey) and also it was obvious how much he was into taking care of Alex in the process and after. I'm not sure I've ever read such a tender interaction during a BDSM scene (after, yeah..but during.. I think not..).
They have a few months of sexual encounters before James leaves for a longer business trip and Alex has the time to think about their relationship and the fact he doesn't want it to be about money anymore and not only because he wants to stop being a stripper and start working as a chef. Yet though he and James are closer he is afraid of expressing his true feelings and when he does.. ~heartache~
The story ends with a short chapter of James and Alex being together for a year. It was a sweet add to the story. Though there is a huge age difference between the two, it seems all you need is love ;)
Recommended! Same as everything else I"ve read by Cari :)
