Took My Breath Away by Thianna D.

Sometimes taking control is what you need to do and sometimes the best thing you can do is give that control up.

In the summer between Logan's junior and senior years of college, these two will find out more about each other and themselves than they imagined.

While unhappy to be missing four weeks of Christian's company, Logan is thrilled to spend a month with his father's relatives in New York. A naturally gregarious individual, he is used to winning people over and getting things right. Unfortunately, the Mannettes are not what he expects and for the first time in his life, he finds himself seriously doubting who he is.

Christian has regained some of his old self-esteem and is taking on new challenges. Besides growing in the relationship he has with Logan, he takes the time his boyfriend is away to learn more about domestic discipline. He learns a little online but it is actually Gregory, Logan's father, where he gains most of his information. Including the fact that his natural strength puts him in a leadership position he isn't expecting.

When Logan returns to a strong, self-assured Christian, it is with complete relief. As discussions turn to domestic discipline and they realize their true roles within their current and future relationship, both of them are able to let their inhibitions go and together their connection grows surprising Logan to an epiphany.

*Warning: Contains BDSM elements with M/M spanking scenes.*

A warm hand rubbed his buttocks and he sighed, leaning his head on the blanket. “I really like the blanket.”

“Wait till you feel the sheets. Just putting them on the bed made me horny.”

“You’re always horny,” Christian reminded him, gasping as a hard hand fell on his rump.

“Have I not taught you?” Logan teased. “Never provoke the man who has your ass in his sights.”

Lifting his hips, he moved his ass back and forth in a teasing motion before lying back down, loving the feel of Logan’s shaft rubbing against him as he did.

“Don’t think a moving target will stop me.”

Grinning, Christian laid his head on the blanket again. The first blow came down, making him moan. The swift feeling of heat quickly dissipated, but he did not have to wait for the next one to fall, or the next. Logan kept up a steady rhythm all over his backside and his upper thighs, none of the smacks hurting particularly. After a few swats, the heat became a bit of a sting and Christian smiled.

There was a slight pause before something small and hard landed on his right cheek, making him hiss. It came down a few times until finally Christian looked up at him. “I really don’t like that.” Whereas Logan’s hand or the feel of leather turned him on, the wooden spoon did not.

Logan looked at the spoon, nodded, and placed it to the side. “I think I will wait on the cutting board too. Let’s try the spatula.” He picked up a long, thin rubber spatula and thwap! It crossed both of Christian’s cheeks, leaving heat behind. As the heat turned into a sizzle, Christian moaned slightly. It still did not feel as good as Logan’s hand, but it wasn’t bad at all.

“Each implement has their own sound,” he mused after Logan tried the pancake turner.

“Yeah, they do. I spanked a masochist once, and he was a pretty intense one. I used my slapper and a cane. The sound combination was delightful.”

Snickering, Christian looked over his shoulders at the expression on Logan’s face, the one that came out when he was mentally trying to figure something out. “Sick man.”

Looking at him, Logan grinned. “You love it.”

“Go for the leather,” Christian encouraged, eyeing the black paddle sitting next to him.

“All right. I will finish you off with this and then I have a hard-on that is bugging the hell out of me.” A moment later a loud sound filled the room as Christian felt the leather paddle collide with his already tenderized skin.

“Fuck,” he gasped, arching his back as his head came off the blanket.

“Feels good, doesn’t it?”

“So good. So good. Don’t stop.” Strike after strike came down on his ass, and after a while Christian wasn’t sure if he loved the feel or the sound of it more. Each time the leather made contact, heat and pleasure filled him up, and as the sound hit him it just intensified the sensation. His cock throbbed and he needed completion. “Logan,” he gasped. “I need you.” The words were automatic. He just knew Logan could give him what he needed.

“Come here, Baby.” Logan grasped his arm and pulled. Christian moved until he lay flat on top of Logan, quickly thrusting his own cock against his boyfriend’s. “Fuck!”

Groaning, Christian nodded as he thrust again. It did not take long. He was so turned on and horny and his ass so hot that he came, calling out Logan’s name as he continued to thrust. Thankfully before his body forced him to relax, Logan came as well.

He felt so good, he laid his head on Logan’s chest and closed his eyes. “I don’t think anyone has ever felt this satisfied,” he mused in a slow, tired voice.

Logan hummed softly, combing fingers through his hair. “Everything is so much better with you, Christian. Everything. Before you go to sleep,” he said quietly. “What do you say about a quick hot shower?”

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the second in a series – I read As Natural As Breathing a little while ago – and was delighted to get to read the next in the series. I had not forgotten the characters and soon slipped back into the story line.

Logan and Christian are finding their way, in the knowledge that Logan has to go and meet his Mannette family in NY. We get a great build up to this, and plenty of sweet affirmative romantic interludes. Christian is a novice to this life after all. The change in family dynamics in Yakima compared to NY is somewhat startling, but adds to the entertainment value. I am assuming that there will be more from NY in the next book, as it is definitely not an issue resolved. Will be interesting to see how that develops.

I loved the continuing domestic discipline conversations and realisations, as well as all the interactions between Logan's parents and Christian. The dialogue is natural and the message effectively communicated. The writing generally is super smooth, and I found myself reading long into the night, as I couldn't stop wanting to know more. Can't wait to get hold of the final book in the trilogy.
