This box set gives readers four different couples and the struggles that they overcome. Life is never uneventful at the club called Collars & Cuffs. The owners and members have built a family and a safe haven for those that need it. Each man finds what he is looking for with the help of the others. When someone is in need the men gather together and find a way to help. These stories show just how strong the friendships and trust are between everyone. How each couple fights their way through the pain and worries to find happiness and love.
The first story brings a new person into the mix. Jeff is another boy who was mistreated and living on the streets. He is brought to Damian’s house to recover and the adventure begins from there. Trust is hard earned, but Damian is willing to try if Jeff will take the chance. Damian has lost love and is not looking for new partner but something about Jeff grabs his attention and will not let go. Can both men find a new way as lovers? Will Damian be able to give up being a Dom for a man who is not a sub?
The next story gives us Dorian and Alan. When Dorian goes in search of the bigger high of more pain he finds himself in over his head and in more trouble than he can handle. His friends finally find him and see what has been done to him. They take him home and Alan is there to pick up the pieces and heal Dorian, but will it be enough to put Dorian back together or is he lost to them forever?
Next come Eli and Jarod. Jarod is an older sub who has lost his Dom but not the need to serve. After failed attempts to find a Dom he begins to despair. When Eli comes into his life Jarod is not so sure about the young man, but their connection cannot be denied. Can the two men find what they are looking for in each other?
The last story brings Darren and JJ. As we watch these two men explore and find happiness in the club and their relationship we also get to see into the many lives of the other members. How their lives have progressed as have their relationships.
Each of these stories is a beautiful and emotional read. Love and trust are earned and fought for by all of these men. Secrets are revealed, and friendships are made stronger. I was quickly lost in each of these stories and loved how they all intertwined with the club and its members. The men have all become a family the love that they have for each other shows in what they do. I enjoyed getting to share the experiences that made their lives and opened their hearts. Be ready to have your heartstrings pulled as well as your heart open while watching these men grow and learn to love. The men of Cuffs & Collars have found their way to a wonderful life and a new beginning.
