Handcuffs and Spreader Bars (A Rawlings Men Story) by Kim Dare

From the dedica of this novella (To taking a chance, even after you’ve been hurt) to the following development, I think the author wanted to launch a message to someone, in a nice and direct way: Detective Sergeant Alasdair Grant is a good cop, he is gay, out and proud, but he was burned in the past and so now he doesn’t trust so much domineering man and that is an issue when you are a sub,

Even if Alisdair is clearly attracted by Harland Rawlings, he doesn’t want to admit it and if Harland let him decide, never would ever happen between them; but of course Harland, like a good Dom, will not that happen, above all since a good Dom knows when to push his sub and when to pull away. Now is the time to push and he comes full front to Alasdair that practically isn’t able to oppose any resistance.

Sure, people can find Harland’s attitude a little too pushing, and in a way Harland is like to now have misunderstood Alasdair’s needs since sincerely he didn’t give the boy much space, he cornered him and had his way. Lucky Alasdair, instead of taking what he wanted without giving anything back, Harland first of all thought of Alasdair, and in doing so he insinuated the doubt in Alasdair that not all the domineering men are the same.

This is not a long story, just 3 encounters and a good start for something good between the two men; again what probably is the nicest thing is to see not only the interaction between Alasdair and Harland but also with all the other Rawlings men that are practically colonizing this London police station.
