Jackson Davis is considered a gay man’s wet dream but he’s tired of finding lovers that only seemed to want him for his looks and not a real relationship. One night at a bar, Jackson discovers a man watching him. The man never approaches him, never speaks to him. When Jackson finally confronts the man, he is astounded by his reaction. Thus begins Jackson’s obsession with pleasing Michael.
And what follows is a story of frustration and confusion for Jackson as Michael commands and dictates to him, rewarding Jackson when he’s good and punishing him when he's bad. Jackson is confused that he lets Michael dominate him, wondering if it makes him less of a man. Can Jackson accept the fact that pleasing Michael makes him happy or will he lose the best thing that ever happened to him?

Pleasing Master is the latest installment in Stormy Glenn’s Sir Series.  I really enjoyed the peaks of Michael that Ms. Glenn gave us in prior books in this series so was looking forward to seeing just what type of submissive tripped his trigger.  I was a little surprised to find out that he wanted a 24/7 submissive.  And while it isn’t my favorite type of dom/sub relationship, I enjoyed this story nonetheless.  Ms. Glenn did a great job of showing us why this type of relationship would work for Jackson and Michael.  She took us on Jackson’s journey into acceptance and understanding.  I mean, prior to meeting Michael, Jackson would not have characterized himself as submissive in any way, shape or form.  But Michael managed to titillate him to such a degree that he didn’t know whether he was coming or going and finally led him right where he wanted him.  It wasn’t all one-sided either.  Jackson received a level of acceptance that had been missing in his previous relationships.  Ms. Glenn kept not only Jackson on edge but her readers as well.  And she did in such a way that I couldn’t wait to see what Michael would do next and how Jackson would respond.  This was a well written and thought out story.  It showed a side of dom/sub relationship that isn’t often read by me and in such a way that I could understand the why of it even as I enjoyed the developing relationship.  I am looking forward to seeing who Ms. Glenn will next craft a happily ever after for in this series.
