The story begins with the confirmation of who is dead, but also the fallout associated with this. It is something that will test the strong bond that exists at Collars & Cuffs, and there are more affected than you realise, especially as there is someone with a big secret and perhaps an ulterior motive for being there.
JJ is the new barman at Collars & Cuffs, but he is not being exactly truthful with Leo or Thomas about his reasons for working there. His life is further complicated by the newbie Dom on the scene - Darren. They are attracted to each other, but JJ has some serious issues, especially with trust which all seems to stem back to his childhood.
Darren has gone to Collars & Cuffs after being given a card by Thomas, and at first he is not sure that this was where he should be, but soon everything became clear to him as soon he walked into the club. Things were looking even better as soon as he saw the new barman JJ. If Darren stands any chance with JJ, he must start to win his trust and slowly break down the barriers he has erected around himself.
Darren has his hands full trying to woo JJ who is not an easy person to woo, but also speak with Thomas to find out more of the lifestyle that he realises is the missing part of his life. He also realises that this is probably why any previous relationship has failed. However, Darren is a Dom, but is JJ a submissive?? He may work at Collars & Cuffs, but is he actually interested in the lifestyle?
During this book, you also catch up with the other couples from the series. I especially loved catching up with Miles and Pietro - although at one point I wasn't sure they were going to stay a couple, as I read on, I was certain things were not going to go well. As you get to the end of the book, everything changes, but in a good way. However, I am hoping that K.C. Wells and Parker Williams will reward us with another book, which is a book (or a novella) released to do with Jarod and Eli and the grand opening!!
Overall, I have loved this series. Some characters I wasn't so sure on and others I totally loved (like Dorian and Jarod). Hmm, strange it is the Subs I am drawn to!! I can honestly say that although this series has come to an end, that I was read all the books again and again. I think the overriding point from all the books in the series to me personally, is that nothing can beat you, especially if you have good friends, who are there for you no matter what. For some reason I always return to Jarod and Eli's book, even though it was sad and will make me cry (which I was reliably informed was KC's fault - thanks Will X), it really shows you can go on with life, whatever your age.
Hi Darren, thank you so much for agreeing to this interview. Hmmm, now what could we ask you.... ok here goes......
1. What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Opening my own salon. I can’t tell you the thrill I get from watching people come in, wary about what’s going to happen, and then leave with a smile a mile wide. Knowing that I helped them find that happiness means a lot to me.
2. If you could have any job or profession, what would it be?
This is my dream job. What could be more exciting than having your own business? And that business grew dramatically after I helped Thomas Williams give his boy, Peter, a new outlook on life.
3. What is your biggest regret?
That I couldn’t be enough for my ex, Michael. Or maybe it’s that we weren’t enough for each other. All my relationships seem to end that way, but we did part as very good friends, and he’s found a new love. But with this card I’ve had in my wallet for a while now, I’m thinking that maybe it’s time to turn this regret into something positive. Maybe now I can finally find out why I was so drawn to what Thomas and Peter had.
4. What is your favorite food?
I’m really not picky when it comes to food. I enjoy a pizza on occasion, but it’s a rare treat for me, because I don’t get to exercise as much as I’d like.
5. Who is your hero?
Believe it or not, it’s Thomas. He’s shown me things I never realized could exist. A bond so tight it’s almost painful to behold because of its beauty. The portion of myself that needs to be there for someone, to guide them through life. My previous boyfriends, including Michael, were independent, and that always felt like an impediment to our relationship.
Meet K.C. Wells:
Born and raised in the north-west of England, K.C. WELLS always loved writing. Words were important. Full stop. However, when childhood gave way to adulthood, the writing ceased, as life got in the way. K.C. discovered erotic fiction in 2009, when the purchase of a ménage storyline led to the startling discovery that reading about men in love was damn hot. In 2012, arriving at a really low point in life led to the desperate need to do something creative. An even bigger discovery waited in the wings—writing about men in love was even hotter….
K.C. now writes full-time and is loving every minute of her new career. The laptop still has no idea of what hit it… it only knows that it wants a rest, please. And it now has to get used to the idea that where K.C goes, it goes.
And as for those men in love that she writes about? The list of stories just waiting to be written is getting longer… and longer….

Meet Parker Williams (or at least his voices):
Good day! We are the voices that live inside Will’s head. The ones who whisper to him constantly, beckoning him to speak of our adventures, to tell of our love, and perhaps, if we’re in a mood, kill a person or two.
We guide his hand as he tells our tales where love is the most powerful force, but must be worked for, molded, and finally, embraced. There can be no shortcuts or substitutions on the path to a happily ever after.
We hope you will join with us as Will fulfills his obligation to ensure our stories are told and, we hope, enjoyed.
