Submit by Bailey Bradford

Larry didn’t think he was made for happy-ever-afters, until one Dom changed his mind.

Larry likes to keep his BDSM and sex separate. He has his reasons and he doesn’t have to explain them to anyone else. Though he has a friend in another sub, Hank, no one knows Larry—maybe not even Larry himself.

Life takes twists and turns one can never predict. When one of those twists turns out to be a Dom Larry is attracted to, Larry’s secretive life and hidden desires threaten to come bubbling to the surface.

But for that to happen, he’ll have to learn to trust someone.

Bo Olsteen always wears his leather hood when he’s at the club. He likes to keep a firm line drawn between the Dom and the man outside of BDSM.

He hasn’t gotten laid or had a scene with a sub in far too long to admit. No one has caught his attention until he sees one blond man with boundaries all over the place and a chip on his shoulder at the BDSM club in Ravon.

Two men, neither of them expecting the connection that bursts to life between them, are about to learn the power in true submission.

Bo and Larry are a quirky couple. Larry is closed off and despite his traumatic history, he is looking to find a connection. While he doesn't necessarily want to find a meaningful relationship on a whim, he looks at his friends and how happy they are in their relationship, he yearns for that too.

Bo is a sadist who is only a sadist in the bedroom and when someone is willing. He seems to take and leave the power exchange in his relationship. When he sees Larry submitting at the club, he can't help but be intrigued.

Bo and Larry develop a relationship that is based on their mutual power exchange, but their relationship is not necessarily all that unique.

This is a quick read where you have a firm connection and see that develop into a relationship fairly quickly.

This is the second book in the series, and I can recommend Exchange (Power #1) to you. I don't think you need to have read it first, but this follows on chronologically.

Ms. Bradford is brilliant at writing about the different hues of BDSM. No assumptions, no formulae, each person has different needs and desires. In Larry she has created someone who has a very good reason for his kinks and wants. He is clearly a good guy, and when it is revealed just what happened to him, those needs make much more sense. Luckily, he and Bo have a strong attraction, and take the time to get to understand each other, in and out of the club.

Another great installment, thank you, Ms. Bradford.

Look, this is a short story so there isn’t a huge amount of build up for fleshing out, but this story really got to me. I found myself tearing up over things I usually wouldn’t.

Larry hasn’t had an easy life and the only one in his life who cares about him is his friend, Hank. After he does a scene at the club with Dom Bo, he starts to think about his life and wants things he hadn’t dared think about before. He wants love and to let someone in to his life.

*Sigh*. Submit is a lovely story. I just love m/m BDSM and these novellas give me a little bit of a comfort read without taking up too much time or brain power, and leave me happy.

I love this series, my only complaint is how short the books are. The first two would have been awesome as full-length novels. Each book can be read as a standalone. We briefly met Larry in the first book. He is so sweet and has kind of a mystery to him and why he wants things the way he wants them. Bo hasn't clicked with anyone in forever and when he meets Larry, he is intrigued. For being such a short book, we did get to see these two grow together and become an awesome pair. Short, hot, and a little bit of sweet. Highly recommend.
