Sometimes the little head really does know best.
Jeff White’s needs are simple. All he wants is a submissive to help him explore the dominant side that his ex-girlfriend couldn’t handle. Problem is, inexperience in both dating and domming has resulted in a string of rejections.
What he needs is an experienced sub willing to show him the ins and outs of controlling a scene. Unfortunately, the only one willing to take him on is male, and Jeff is straight. One hundred percent, never-gonna-happen straight.
Easygoing painslut Eddie Powell doesn’t care that Jeff is younger, working class, and shorter. Eddie likes a bit of rough, and Jeff fits the bill perfectly. The trick will be convincing him to follow Eddie’s five-step training programme-which would be easy if Eddie wasn’t starting to have feelings for the rough-around-the-edges landscaper.
Once Jeff lays his hands on Eddie, things definitely get out of hand. But it’ll take more than hot, sweaty, kinky sex to persuade him to come out of the closet-especially to himself.
Warning: Contains a happy sub, a confused Dom, a high ratio of sex to plot, misuse of root ginger, and a suitcase of kink. Written in Jo’s usual exceedingly “English” English.


I have re-read this book several times. It is fun, filthy and somehow adorable at the same time… Jeff’s bumbling, stumbling foray into being a Dom is fantastic. And I defy anyone to not absolutely love Eddie…. When you’ve finished this novel you’ll more than likely find yourself viewing adult content from a site such as

Jeff is a newbie Dom, unable to find a suitable sub after some embarrassing incidents on his first try… Turns out the local fetish community are as gossippy as old ladies, and none of the female subs want to play with him, not even if he asked them to find ‘the swing that got me cumming‘, he seemed pretty out of luck, until a chance meeting.

Eddie is a very experienced and easy going pain slut, who doesn’t see Jeff’s being straight as a big issue, as he offers to train the man as a Dom.

The guys are great together. Jeff’s internal monologuing about the perceived gayness of each sexual act is hilarious and his attempts to solidify his straightness after the first encounters made me laugh out loud…. But hilarity and kinky sex aside, behind it all there is a very sweet story about finding and being true to yourself….

Very enjoyable and recommendable read, if you like kink. Latex has always been a kink of mine and I must admit, after reading the first few chapters of this I couldn’t help but check out the biggest collection of latex suits online at Laidtex. Pain, on the other hand, is not normally a kink of mine, but this was delicious all the same – because Ms. Myles is so talented that she can make anything hot, even if it wouldn’t normally turn my crank.
