I was given this book by the author in return for an honest review by the BDSM Goodreads group.
This was a really nice surprise. I was expecting porn and instead it's a wonderful erotic novella with terrific, rounded characters and a beat-the-monster plot - with an HEA! I liked Tate, the young, impetuous hero of the story, James the Dom who is totally sane, experienced and tough, and Sebastian their sweet, sensitive, kind third. They're very human, very attractive, and there are hints of flaws and breaks in their complex relationship that will make a fine novel or two. The writing's good, the pacing excellent, and there's a real sense of time and place. The only thing I didn't like, and it's really nitpicking, is that visit to the doctor towards the end. I know some readers demand "messages" but all the condom talk and technical information came across as stilted. I'd fiddle with that a little, probably reduce it to a very short paragraph. But like I said, nitpicking. The Loft is definitely recommended!
