Dominate by Bailey Bradford

release day review

Pride Publishing

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

Dominate is the third book in a series of short stories set in a BDSM club. In my view it can be read alone as any reference to characters from the other stories are fleeting. This is a snapshot story covering about two weeks and I would’ve liked more. I felt I had just got invested in where Quarry and Forest’s relationship was going when the story ended. Having said that I loved the story. Forest is a virgin but knows what he wants and is drawn to BDSM. To satisfy his curiosity he visits a club where he meets Quar. Quar takes Forest under his wing and rest as they say is history. I do like Bailey Bradford’s characters. They are always likeable, well the main characters are. The BDSM scenes in this book are not heavy mainly discussions about what both of them want, some spanking and exhibitionism. If you are unsure about BDSM this would be a good story to start with.
