Sometimes corporal punishment is needed
Kade Thompson was sick and tired of working sixty plus hour weeks. After all he was only an accountant, not a surgeon. For many he was considered powerful and a sought after catch, yet he hadn’t obtained all he hungered for. However, earning a six-figure income had allowed him to indulge in his every desire, including toys and rather kinky bouts of sin. He also enjoyed an on again off again push and shove relationship with his boss, Trevor Willis. While the sex was passionate, he craved being dominated by the six foot six God and Trevor didn’t seem interested. Tired of playing games, he was ready to break off their relationship until an invitation to meet for a drink at The Peeping Hole, a mysterious and very exclusive club, had him more than curious.
When he found out the club offered every aspect of kink, he was breathless with excitement. As Kade waited for Trevor’s arrival, he was given an offer he couldn’t refuse and one that might sate his every craving – if he would submit to the man behind the mask. Unfortunately what went on behind the hallowed doors was required to stay behind them. But could they keep up their end of the bargain and one forged in a touch of black magic? Only Alexander knows. Ssshhh… No peeping.
I am Alexander – a teacher, a scoundrel, a voyeur and a true entrepreneur. In my world there’s little left to the imagination. That is if you dare to taste what only I can offer. Welcome to The Peeping Hole, where every fantasy you’ve ever desired will come true. Leave your inhibitions at the door and join us. But you must remember, whatever happens here stays here and trust me, I will know…
Rating: 3/5 stars

Review: I have read and reviewed another book by this author before, which I didn’t like. But I gave Cassandre Dayne another chance.
So corporal domination wasn’t as bad as I feared it would be. There is the overuse of the words hunk and chuckle/chuckling, but oh well.
I liked how you get to know the characters, even though it isn’t a long book. Both men are inexperienced in the matters of bdsm and instead of jumping straight in, they get professional help. I liked that as well.
The way the training was shown I didn’t like so much. I missed the scene discussion, but at least there was consent talk. It felt a little rushed, too. The training, I mean. I would have liked if there was more anticipation.
I thought there would be more of Alexander, but apparently this wasn’t his story.
There is just this thing the author has done in Shattered, which just didn’t do it for me and she has done it here as well. Even more. I want sounds to be described not sentences like “Crack! Pop!”.
So this book was way better than the one I’ve read before, but the author’s writing style isn’t something I like to read. But tastes differ and that is a good thing.
NetGalley provided me with an ARC in exchange for a honest review. Thank you.
