Review - Living on the Edge by L.M. Somerton

My rating:

Aiden is an intelligent bratty young university student with skills. He gets caught hacking into corporate computer systems, but instead of sending him to jail, the judge assigns him to work at The Edge, a management retreat for corporate executives, among other things.

Review - The Lucky Cat by L.M. Somerton

My rating:

Landry works in a Seattle antiques store for an older Chinese man who knows his stuff and is teaching the young man his trade. It isn't easy, since Landry can be a bit scatterbrained, no doubt due to the large amounts of coffee and pastries he can consume. One day, Landry is alone in the shop when he is visited by police detective Gage, who is on the trail of some artworks stolen from a traveling exhibit in Japan.

Review - Reaching the Edge by L.M. Somerton

My rating:

Joe is a successful psychologist with a sideline running a corporate retreat that also offers training in the BDSM lifestyle. He is a respected dominant in his own right, but feels he wants more than the occasional scene with a willing submissive. One night he pays a social visit to The Underground club, where his good friend the owner introduces him to Olly. The young man is definitely just the kind of submissive Joe likes, but he's also got a troubled past with a sadistic master who isn't quite ready to give him up.

Review - Finding Him by L.M. Somerton

My rating:

Zac is certain he's a submissive, but he's never had a chance to explore those feelings. As the son of a wealthy businessman who has been the target of kidnapping attempts in the past, he can't just visit any old BDSM club and take his chances with just any Dom he meets. Fortunately, Zac has a good relationship with his father, who also has some experience in the scene, so he understands what Zac needs, and he can afford to give his son the very best introduction to BDSM, which naturally means The Retreat.
