Power Play: Resistance by Rachel Haimowitz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Give me six months, and I'll give you the world.
McKinney has scraped and sacrificed for what little in life he's ever
had. Though it's been fifteen years since he escaped his father's abuse,
the damage remains. Trust seems as far out of reach as his dream of
becoming an architect, and though he's come to accept being gay, he
can't deny the shame and confusion he feels at other urges--the deeply
repressed desire to submit.
Jonathan Watkins is a self-made
Silicon Valley billionaire whose ex-wife took half his money and even
more of his faith. Comfortable as a Dominant but wary of being hurt
again, he resorts to anonymous pickups and occasional six-month
contracts with subs seeking only a master, not a lover.
sizzling back-alley encounter cues Jonathan in to Brandon's deep-seated
submissive side, he makes the man an offer: Give me six months of your
life, and I'll open your eyes to a whole new world. Brandon doesn't care
about that; all he wants is the three million dollars Jonathan's
offering so he can buy the construction company he works for. But he
soon learns that six months on his knees is no easy feat, and shame and
pride may keep him from all he ever wanted-and all he never dreamed he
had any right to have.
Reader discretion advised. This title
contains heavy kink. While consent is clearly established and frequently
reaffirmed, some moments in Power Play push hard against the outer
edges of consent.
not for the faint of hearts!!
started off so sweet and before I knew it the power struggle of epic proportion was on!
a bargain has been set and both Jonathan and Bran won't give in. even tho Bran is physically taking all he's thrown and regardless of Jonathan being a sadist its a harsh road for both involved.
I was happy to see both their POV's. I knew Jonathan wasnt a complete ass who got off on hurting ppl like he portrayed and that there's more to Bran than his tough exterior shell.
the end was a bit surprising. bran had been through so much I would have sworn he wouldn't be able to take it again but all the work Jonathan had put in finally paid off.
in the end they were both on the same page.
