It's no secret that I love a good slave story. And this one was good and gritty and got down to business right away. And by down to business I mean turning this man who has been captured, Orion, into the sweet slave boy he should be.
Orion was sold to be a slave, it was never something he wanted but he's a man who wants to excel at anything he sets out to do. He's supposed to be a slave, well he's going to be the bast damn slave he can be. If he's going to do something, he's going to do it right. And boy, did he do it right. He totally embraced his slavery and loved being loved by his master.
"How do you feel now, Orion?" Ares asked, gathering his precious boy into his arms.Oh fucking my. Please let that be a promise, please.
"I feel complete, Master."
Ares smiled. That was exactly how he himself was feeling at present.
"Is that your way of telling me you are sore and stiff, Orion?"
The boy nuzzled his shoulder, spreading warm feelings inside him.
"It is, Master."
"Unfortunately for you, Orion, it will be like that every time I take you for my gratification. If you think that was bad, wait until I finish taking you again before allowing you to sleep."
"Is that a promise as well, Master?"
Oooooh, the master/slave and BDSM scenes were good. Whips, whips, whips...mmmmm... I love a good whipping scene. Ares knew exactly what to do and how to treat Orion in order to turn him into a slave. He was the perfect master for his slave. Not to mention how he was with his other slave, Meme. Sweet, loving Meme. He's one of those genuine slaves who sincerely needs to be mastered in order to be happy. He was just perfect.
So, Orion and Meme were arrested and sold into slavery for having sex with each other. Apparently, free men can't have sex, but they can if they're slaves? I'm not quite sure. The world-building was a bit fuzzy for me and I never really caught the gist of this whole 'slavery' thing they had going on. The why of everything was never clear, I would have liked to know more about why Orion and Meme were punished for having sex with a man and then sentenced to slavery where they would have sex with a man. Huh? *scratches unicorn horn* But, really, there were masters and slaves involved, so was I all that bothered? No, not really.
It was short, hot and to the point. If you're into slaves stories, I'd say pick it up. It's worth the read for the whips alone.
I recieved a copy of this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review through the "Don't Buy My Love" event hosted by the M/M Romance Group on Goodreads.
