he men from Kiss of Leather gather together to rescue a terrified young sub. But it’s Master Derek who wants to keep him for good.

Master Gavin and his boy, Kyle, are celebrating their newly established bond when Master Josh calls requesting their help. Josh’s sub, David, needs the men to help his best friend from childhood while they’re away at a BDSM convention in San Francisco.

Corey ran away from his Master after a horrible scene, but he blames himself for everything that happened. No Master would ever want him if they were to find out what he did. Corey’s not sure if he’ll ever feel safe enough to give himself to a Master again anyway, even if all he’s ever wanted was to belong to somebody.

Master Derek agrees to watch over Corey until Josh and David return from the convention. All he needs is another pretty twink messing with his head and his heart, so the older, growly bear of a man determines to keep his distance. But when Corey wakes up screaming after a devastating nightmare, Derek is more drawn than ever to the young sub—the need to keep Corey safe from whatever or whoever has hurt him becoming his main priority.

Kyle and Corey develop a friendship when Corey assists Kyle in the dungeon furniture workshop. Kyle has his own fears—the ones that make him feel he’s broken because of the things he desires to do with Gavin. Through helping Kyle and receiving his own help via Derek, Corey decides he’s ready to let go of the demons from his past and move forward into a new life.

Now if Corey can only get Derek to believe that he’s ready—and to finally do something about it.

Reader Advisory: This book contains a flashback scene of rape by multiple aggressors.

Publisher's Note: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series.


Safe Limits by author Morticia Knight is the second book in the Kiss of Leather series. This one we meet Corey and Derek. Derek is a loner now. He lost one boy because the boy wanted to be in the city and with the night life. Derek is a homebody who likes the simple things in life, riding his motorcycle, dominating his boy, watching movies, those kinds of things. He has given up on finding someone who likes those things too.
Corey has been abused by a person claiming to be a Dom. He is ashamed of how he allowed this person to do things he cannot even speak about to him. He is scared but wants to put his life back together. I admired his bravery and willingness to love again despite all he has been through.
These two have a lot of soul searching and have a lot of issues to work through, but watching them become closer is sensual and erotic in itself. I love the emotional angst and pull this book has. Ms. Knight brings the right amount of BDSM to bring a great book to another level. You really do have to read these books in order, Kyle's story is also sprinkled into this story, and if you do not know his story you will be lost. There are scenes or flash backs more likely of past events that some readers might find too much. For me I loved knowing and understand Corey, he is stronger than even he knows. When you want a sensual, fiery story this is the one to pick up.
