A Dom and His Writer by Xenia Melzer

Life is perfect for Richard and Dean. Richard is a wealthy and successful businessman who also owns a BDSM club, and Dean is a best-selling author and sub to Richard. They’re young, happy, and in love. The future is bright….

Until tragedy strikes and an accident claims Dean’s beloved sister. Dean finds himself the guardian of a three-month-old infant, and soon he’s trading in his leather fetish gear for diapers and drool bibs. But little Emily is all that remains of his family, so how can he abandon her?

It’s not what Richard signed up for. As much as he tries to be supportive, he never wanted kids and misses having his partner to himself. Suddenly the life he imagined for them is gone, and he’s not sure their relationship can survive the upheaval. But fate isn’t through with Dean, and when misfortune strikes again, will he be able to turn to the man he loves? A final crisis will determine if they can pull together as a family or must face facts and part ways.

Richard and Dean have been lovers for a while now. They enjoy a BDSM relationship where Dean submits to Richard. Richard loves his boy with all of himself. However, when Dean has a tragedy in his life, Richard is anything but a loving and caring master. Rather, he turns into this whimpering, snotty man and I truly had a difficult time liking him.

Dean has known that since he was gay that he would never be welcomed by his parents again. However, his sister has always been there for him. When tragedy strikes and she is killed, he is lost and doesn't really know how to cope. Also, there is the added stress that his sister had a daughter, Emily, and asked that Dean be her guardian. Dean throws himself into learning about how to care for his niece. Knowing how hard this new relationship (his and his niece) is on Richard, Dean tries very hard not to ask too much. However, because Dean is used to having Richard to lean on, he flounders a bit.

When things really come to head, I loved Richard's dad. I cheered for him and loved the way that he loved Dean and Emily. He also was able to help Richard see what a dope he was being. Even though Dean loves Richard, he won't stand by and let Richard make him feel bad for protecting the only family he has left. Both men will need to fight for what they want.

This is about learning to adjust, love and protect those we hold most dear. I really enjoyed this story and the snippet of the next one looks just as intriguing.

The saving grace to my four stars is that Richard finally pulled his head out of his butt! I can honestly say I hated Richard through most of this book. It was a great story, I am sure this stuff happens in real life and this was a real life response on Richard's part, but he was just a jerk to Dean. I loved Dean and my heart broke for him in so many ways. When things go tits up, Richard just does a total 180 and I went from liking him to loathing him. I loved Richard's dad, I am glad he was in the story, he added to it and I loved the manny that they hired for the first few months too. I get Richard's side of things, but you just don't do what he did to Dean, especially in that kind of relationship. As much as I hated Richard, I did really enjoy the book and would recommend it.

XENIA MELZER was born and raised in a small village in the south of Bavaria. As one of nature’s true chocoholics, she’s always in search of the perfect chocolate experience. So far, she’s had about a dozen truly remarkable ones. Despite having been in close proximity to the mountains all her life, she has never understood why so many people think snow sports are fun. There are neither chocolate nor horses involved and it’s cold by definition, so where’s the sense? She does not like beer either and has never been to the Oktoberfest—no quality chocolate there.

Even though her mind is preoccupied with various stories most of the time, Xenia has managed to get through school and university with surprisingly good grades. Right after school she met her one true love who showed her that reality is capable of producing some truly amazing love stories itself.

While she was having her two children, she started writing down the most persistent stories in her head as a way of relieving mommy-related stress symptoms. As it turned out, the stress relief has now become a source of the same, albeit a positive one.

When she’s not writing, she translates other authors’ manuscripts to German, enjoys riding and running, spending time with her kids, and dancing with her husband.
