To celebrate his decision to take the next step with his boyfriend Ian, Toshi Baylor plans a romantic evening at their favorite steak house. Toshi starts the special weekend with a bang by surprising Ian at home with lunch. There’s a bang all right, but it’s between Ian and another guy.

Jase Taylor’s auto repair shop and the BDSM club, Wrapped Up, keep him busy while he waits for Mr. Right, instead of Mr. Right Now. He’s a Dom, but playing with the club’s submissives isn’t providing the usual stress release. After a day from hell, he deserves a good meal at his favorite steak house.

Toshi and Jase find a mix-up with their reservations: a table for Baylor, not Taylor. When Toshi invites Jase to dine with him, they discover a mutual affection for leather and a shared belief that trust must be earned.

Before they can explore their common interests, Toshi suffers a series of attacks by vandals. Jase’s protective instincts kick in, but both wonder if it can lead to anything permanent.


I had never read any works by M. A. Church prior to reading Wrapped in Leather but it will definitely not be the last time I read this author.  I thoroughly enjoyed this story along with Toshi and Jase.  Both men were strong in different ways and they complemented each other wonderfully.Ms. Church gave us a well written story that felt sexy and real.  I loved Toshi and totally enjoyed his offbeat method of vengeance.  Even through his pain I found laughter; however that is not to say that Ms. Church did not write an emotionally charged story because it was that as well.  I could understand why Jase was leery of getting involved with Toshi but loved that he decided to take that leap of faith.  I loved that this strong man was emotionally vulnerable and Ms. Church showed it in such a thoughtful manner.  I also enjoyed the fact that Ms. Church didn’t rush Toshi and Jase’s relationship.  She gave them the time they needed to learn about each other and become comfortable together.  This story was well thought out and full of emotional depth.  It also had moments of fun and light-heartedness.  I found myself invested and charmed by her writing and look forward to seeing more from this author and her Wrapped Up series.
