Review: Fettered by Lyn Gala

Dylan Carter has always played second fiddle to his perfect older brother, but now that brother is implicated in a terrible crime, and Dylan's family is imploding. Dylan can’t hide anymore. Knowing he’s falling apart, he searches for something or someone to hold him together—and lands in a BDSM bar called the Stonewall.

Dylan doesn’t understand Miss Dolphinia, the hard-drinking queen who seems determined to play matchmaker. But more confusing is the way the powerful men in leather make him feel. In her wisdom, Miss Dolphinia sends Dylan off to a back room for his introduction to the world of erotic spankings and bondage.

Dylan’s teacher—for want of a better word—is the very dominant Vin Hauser. Vin likes to play hard, but he’s honest with himself—he knows all those men want is a strong hand, not a long-term relationship. Yet Vin can’t help but hope Dylan might be different.

With controversy over his brother’s sins stirring up danger around him, Dylan needs Vin’s support more than ever. But until he and Vin learn to trust each other, Dylan will have to face his fear and the growing threats alone.

Wow. How I loved this. All for unexpected reasons. Well, mostly unexpected, that is.

Dylan is falling apart. He's got to get away from his crazy home life. His brother has been accused (and is most likely guilty) of some heinous crimes. His family is going cray because of it and he just needs to get gone. This is when he finds himself at Stonewall, a local BDSM club. And he finds someone to hold him together. *licks lips* Oh boy, he does. *grunts*

Vin. Gawd, Vin. Vin. Yes, he requires me saying his name three times. Maybe four. Vin.
"'I prefer not to talk to them afterward, but I love whipping someone, watching the strain and yield, and you strain and fight and lose yourself so completely that I am looking forward to fucking you night after night. I want to find out just how fast I can drop you into that subspace. I want to know every sensitive spot in your body, and I want to watch the muscles of your back stand out as you fight the cuffs.'"
I love his kind of Dom-ish-ness. He's all obsessive and possessive and just. so. alpha. He doesn't just fall in love with Dilly, his emotions are so much more and all-encompassing. Dylan is his. *bites lip*

He didn't have the need for things like safe-words and such. He knew what his boy needed and he was going to give it to him.
"Dilly was alone. Thinking. Dilly hated thinking. He pulled against the chains and realized he didn't have a whole lot of choice, though, because he wasn't going to be doing anything else until Vin allowed it. And worse, Dilly wanted to have sex with Vin more than ever. Well, crap."
Vin wanted Dilly to think, so he made sure Dilly was going to sit and think. Even if chains were involved. Unf.

Dylan is the perfect sub for him. He wants and needs that kind of control over him in this uncontrollable time in his life.

So, yeah, all these things are totally expected reasons as to why I would love this. But, REASONS! There's more.

I had no idea there was going to be such crazy family happenings and that I would become so invested in Dylan and the insanity that his life has become. I get not wanting to believe the absolute worst about your children but I couldn't believe how deep in denial his mother was. And then, the results because of this was just... I don't even know. Unbelievable.

I love the dedication that came from Vin. He was 100% there for Dylan, no questions asked, Dylan needed him so that was that. Vin was taking control of the situation. *rawr* Then Dylan was so willing to accept his help. There wasn't any push and pull between them, no arguments. They fit each other so perfectly.

I loved this for all the reasons that I knew I would. The ropes, chains, whips, floggers and vibrating butt plugs. The perfect Dom/sub way Vin and Dylan belonged together. Then there was just so much more to them and their story.
