Dominate by Bailey Bradford

Forest is absent-minded, oblivious, and so adorable, Dominant Quarry Light can’t help but to fall for him.

Quarry Light grew up tough— with a name like his, he didn’t have any other choice. Being a Dom came naturally to him, so when he got the chance to co-own a BDSM club with his friends, he leaped on the opportunity. If he thought he’d be able to find his soulmate sub easier, well, that was a side benefit.

The only problem is, that benefit had never appeared and after having his heart and hopes crushed twice, Quar has decided he'll stick to just scening with a sub now and then.

Fate has other things in mind, namely in the form of one Forest Tilden.

Forest is absent-minded, oblivious and so adorable, Quar can't help but ask for his number after he stops to help the poor guy. Forest’s car picked the right day to bite it. He’s going to get more than a little mechanical advice from Quar. Together, they might get the future they both long for.

This is the third book in the series, and whilst the stories follow on from each other, they have different leads, so you could read this as a standalone. It is short, engaging, and raises some interesting issues about the perceptions of BDSM and BDSM clubs.

Quar is a dom, but really not hardcore. He tempers his need to dominate with a soft heart, and has a tendency to jump straight in and regret it afterwards. So when he meets Forest, a newbie member, he tries to take it slow. As they negotiate their way around their needs, and clear desires, there is the beginning of a beautiful relationship coming to fruition.

I liked the slant on the D/s relationship that this takes, and how the JD situation was dealt with by the club. This book fits well in the series.

M/M BDSM Romance

Quarry and Forest are a good couple. Quarry has a tendency, despite his dom persuasiveness, to jump into relationship and he wants to make a more cautious decision about his next sub. He's had his heart broken a few times and he knows he's wanting to try and avoid that feeling again. When he sees a new sub being accosted by a dom in the club whom Quarry doesn't have too much respect for, Quarry comes to his aid.

Forest is unsure of what to expect when he walks into the BDSM club. When he looks around he knows that in his soul, he'll find peace here. When Quarry comes to his rescue, he can't help but be drawn to him. Everything in his soul tells him that Quarry will be the one who can fulfill his fantasy.

This is a quick read and the relationship isn't able to develop too much, but it was enjoyable and well thought out.

Dominate is a short, fast, and entertaining story. For me, Quar and Forest show the comfort, security, and sweetness that BDSM has to offer. I really liked that Forest had the confidence to ask for what he wanted even though he is inexperienced. Stories like Dominate are why I find M/M BDSM so comforting to read.

A really quick and easy but still steamy read. Quarry is becoming jaded, two long-term subs and both end in heartbreak; he's guarded his heart. Until he sees newbie to the club, geeky but lovable Forest. Forest is very innocent, he's even a virgin. But he sure responds to Quarry's dominance. The boys together are both sweet and hot and easy to fall for. Loved their happily ever after. This novella hits all the marks.

This is the third book in this series and my least favorite. I didn't feel any connection to Quarry or Forest until the epilogue. The book was more like a Q and A session, which is fine, but it didn't help the reader make a connection or want to know more about Quar or Forest. We saw previous couples from the first two books, which was nice. There was drama but not with the main characters directly. This one just missed the mark for me. I will have to say the scene in the epilogue was hot though.

Writing is too much fun, and there are too many characters bouncing about, tapping on Bailey's brain demanding to be let out.
