Pure Indulgence by Victoria Sue

I recently met Victoria Sue through a link on Facebook where we are going to be teamed up as table mates at IBF 2015 (see the links in the righthand column). As I love to read M/M as well as write it and I knew she had books available I thought I'd pick up one to give it a try. I've got to say I am so glad I did.

I don't usually read BDSM not because I have anything against the lifestyle but because it just didn't appeal to me as subject matter. But Pure Indulgence was nothing like I was expecting. The characters grabbed my heart and wouldn't let go until I finished their story.

Joe, new ex-cop and Dom was nothing like the story Dom's I'd read before. It seemed to me that the more I read about Joe, he just wanted someone to take care of and I wanted him to have someone to take care of. Two failed marriages left him feeling like he wasn't loveable and would never have a real relationship in his life. Discovering that he was extremely attracted to young twink Adam came as a complete shock to him. He was not gay!

On the other hand, I believe Adam knew exactly what (who) he wanted and he was frustrated when Joe wouldn't take the hint. He went so far as to commit to submitting to a Dom who was obviously not nice because Joe would not voice that he wanted Adam. Learning to trust Joe enough to reveal his sad history was a big issue for Adam to overcome and brought tears to my eyes.

The mystery in this story was another great part of the read. I was kept guessing as to who the bad guy was until the very end and yes, I was surprised.

I appreciated that the author didn't go into great detail about scenes in Club Pure. What was given was enough for me to imagine what was going on. I didn't need details to see it. What I did see was true attraction and romance between two men who really needed each other. I've read other stories with lots more heat but I've seldom read a story with this much heart.

This book is worth your time. Five flowers because of the well written mystery and the chemistry between the MC's.

Did you see my name in there?

You won't often hear me speak out on an issue. But when I was given the opportunity to be a part of something as wonderful as this, I had to jump in. There are so many in our world who are quick to step up for the wrong thing, how about we step up for a good thing. I'm giving and I hope you will too.
