Lucas and Cole from Top Priority have been together for many happy years, but there’s always been a little something missing. As two “Daddy Doms” they’ve always wanted a younger submissive man to be “Their Boy”. The right man just hasn’t come along, until they come across Kit. The young man in his early twenties has been battling quite a few demons since a car accident took the lives of his parents, and left him scarred. Kit has always been into kink but hasn’t found anyone with the patience to deal with his issues. Will things be any different with Cole and Lucas?
Although a direct sequel to the previous book, this story stands on its own if you haven’t read the prior volume. There’s enough of an introduction of Cole and Lucas that you won’t feel like you’re missing anything, although there’s a lot more to their story than is related here. It’s perhaps a little hard to judge, but their characters still seem well developed within this story, and we also get to see a side of them — their daddy modes — that we didn’t see at all in the prior book.
The center of attention for this book is Kit, and the story is told entirely from his point of view. In rough outline, this story falls into the common “broken sub” theme of kink stories, but the treatment in this case is quite a bit more sophisticated than what I usually read. The picture we get of Kit is a far more realistic image of someone who has undergone real trauma and is working hard to get through it. He might sort things out on his own without the help of Cole and Lucas, but they definitely help. There’s a pivotal scene almost at the end that is especially well written where Kit finally has his much-needed cathartic breakthrough. It might not be an approved psychiatric treatment, but it rings true.
Like most stories with the broken sub theme, the dom, or in this case doms, are just a little too good to be true. They seem to know exactly what Kit needs, although there are hints of doubt here and there that makes them a little more believable. This comes across even more, I think, if you have read their origin story in the previous book.
The kinky scenes between the three are definitely hot, and not too extreme, really. However, as a daddy/son — or “daddy/little” as the author puts it in slightly less inflammatory terms — dynamic there can be a bit of unease around Kit’s role, especially when he regresses and really does act like a child. This, for me, was perhaps the least believable aspect of the story. Regression is definitely part of this kind of relationship dynamic, but it just feels like Kit goes a little too far back to be completely believable.
“Their Boy” is available from Amazon.
