There's no safe word for love...
“6’2”, 200 pounds of muscle. Can you handle the beast? Omegas: call me daddy.”
-Leo’s Grindr Profile
Hayden Williams is looking for a better life. After a tragic accident takes his father away from him, his family starts to spiral out of control. Hayden never felt comfortable in his own skin. He is a closeted bisexual, and most of the people around him can't seem to let that go. He's tried everything to find someone he can relate to, but he's starting to believe that fluid people like himself don't deserve to be loved.
When Hayden sends a few pictures to a mysterious daddy alpha online, he realizes he’s found who he’s been looking for: someone dangerous. Now, he can no longer hold back. He's coming out of the closet, no holds barred.
"Leather, leashes, handcuffs, and chains... Give me them all."

Hayden has been hiding a large part of himself for a long time. He's an omega and is attracted to both men and women. His mother fell apart after his father died and Hayden had to try to keep things together. He was always the perfect son but finally, he's finding the courage to live for himself. What he wants most to be controlled and he's hoping Leo is the man to do it.
Leo is mentally broken. His last relationship still affects his every waking moment; it isn't helping that he's basically being stalked by his ex. Leo is not in a good headspace. He hasn't dealt with his past.
Hayden and Leo both feel a spark when they meet. Hayden is afraid to be his true self and Leo is terrified to trust Hayden. This is an angsty story. Leo was definitely put through the wringer and is scarred mentally by his past. Major trust issues and fear of putting his heart on the line with Hayden. Hayden has his own share of mental struggles. I didn't quite understand why it was such a big deal he's an omega. Maybe in his world, male omegas are looked down upon? I'm not sure. It's a lot of angst, really good angst but a little too much for my personal preference. If you love angst, this is a great story for you! I'm an angst wuss, I can fully admit it. I need fluff to get me through the angst. Too much angst without fluff to balance it out for me.
The BDSM was good and I definitely enjoyed the Daddy kink and age gap. Yum!
The ending was fluffy mcflufferson. Sweet and loving and cute. It was great. I loved how they became a family in the end.
Overall, this wasn't a book for me. This is a good book, I'm not denying that. It was nicely written and a good story but not my kind of story. My rating is based mostly upon being an angst wimp (which I'm okay with). All the other stuff? Hit my buttons but angst me no likey.
Love angst? This is the story for you!
Hi. My name is Jordan K Prince. I'm an avid reader of MM fiction. I am particularly fond of mpreg; I can never have enough. I'm in the process of writing my first MM novel, mpreg, of course. I live and breathe MM fiction and I enjoy every minute I can spend lost in the worlds I discover there.
