S.E.X Review~ Building Bonds by Morticia Knight

Kyle’s a natural sub who builds dungeon furniture, yet has no interest in BDSM. It takes a hunky Dom to show him just what he’s been missing.
After Kyle’s partner of five years leaves him for another man on the night of their housewarming party, the shy, early-thirties carpenter needs to do a major reassessment of his life in addition to raising some serious cash. With no one to help him pay the lease on his Los Angeles condo, he worries how he’ll survive. His best friend sets up a meeting with one of the Doms and partners at Kiss of Leather, a gay BDSM club being built as a premier destination for those who want the best of the best.
Master Gavin not only wants the best—he demands it. When he meets Kyle, he assumes that part of the builder’s reticence to share anything personal with him must be due to his experiences with an abusive former Master. Not one to back down from a challenge, Gavin determines to break through the walls surrounding the beautiful man he can’t get out of his mind. He’s hopeful that once he convinces Kyle to sign an initial contract, Kyle might be the first sub to open up his heart.
Misunderstandings and accusations almost destroy everything between them before they have a real chance to begin. However, the true obstacle becomes not only whether Kyle will embrace BDSM as a lifestyle, but also whether he can handle a full-time D/s relationship with a big, bad, scary Dom who’s as sexy as hell.

Morticia Knight has done it again. She has created the start of a wonderfully sexy new BDSM series, Kiss of Leather, with the first book— Building Bonds.

Gavin, Derek and Josh are beginning a new venture, an exclusive BDSM club- Kiss of Leather, where gay men come to play in exclusivity and safety. Kyle creates masterpieces for the BDSM community but knows little of the lifestyle, albeit if his creations say something else.

Kyle is introduced to this new and fascinating world when he is commissioned for a three year contract to construct one of a kind pieces for Kiss of Leather. Master Gavin is immediately smitten with the shy and blushing man—a man Gavin can’t believe is not already taken as a submissive, as Kyle’s natural inclination is to please.

Building Bonds was a story of building relationships and the work that they entail. Friendship leads to trust and ultimately love as Gavin and Kyle wade through unchartered waters— Kyle learning and Gavin reinforcing and guiding Kyle’s submissiveness.

Ms. Knight wrote a journey of exploration and sensuality allowing Kyle’s demeanor and natural tendencies to come to the forefront of his D/s bond with Gavin. Ms. Knight hit all my buttons with this book. Kyle was a man in his thirties who unfortunately had a bad previous association with a man who underappreciated him. This left Kyle unsure of himself but by no means wimpy or whiny. Kyle’s lack of self-esteem was a driving force in Gavin’s decision to care for and nurture the man. Gavin was gentle and encouraged Kyle to always be true to himself and speak up, especially when being trained as a submissive.

A good BDSM book has hot, sexy scenes with people who mutually respect each other. A great BDSM book has all of the above plus a true understanding of a submissive’s power. Morticia Knight has created a great BDSM book.

She never fails to bring a new level to her writing, introducing nuances into the D/s-BDSM relationship that capture my attention and keep me coming back for more.

Additionally, a reference to the Hampton Roads Club brought a smile to my face.

Each series Morticia Knight creates lets me into the mind of genius and I look forward to reading more of the Kiss of Leather series.
