It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Mr Nolan’s last relationship lasted for over two decades. But, since suddenly finding himself single two years ago, he has struggled to find a submissive who can fill the void in his life. Maybe a temporary arrangement is exactly what he needs to ease him back into the lifestyle he loves so much.

Mark’s never experienced life under the protection of a good dom. He’s merely had a series of abusive partners. He’s used to being treated as a temporary feature in a man’s life, then thrown away when they tire of him.

When mutual friends push them together, the last thing Mr Nolan or Mark expects is to end up hoping a temporary collar will become permanent.

I'm just as angry as Edward as to the men who say they are Doms but have such total lack of regards for the men in their care. They are not "Doms" and are as a rotten apple, spoiling the rest of the barrel (the world's view) of the whole D/s culture.

okay, off soapbox 

What's a man to do when his friends show up late a night asking for a favor?

Edward takes in a submissive who was disowned by his last Dom, left on his own at a club with only the clothes on his back. And it turns out, he's injured.

Mark hasn't had any proper training, doesn't realize that being a submissive can be more than about pain, doesn't realize that the sub chooses the Dom. Now add in the fact that Edward's sub has been dead for two years, they'd been together 20+ years, and he hasn't replaced him and poor Mark has a serious case of insecurity.

The story is short, sweet and fast, taking place mostly over the weekend. I liked that both characters had insecurities and the author let us hear their inner monologue.

Beautiful ending.
