Handcuffs and Leather (A Rawlings Men Story) by Kim Dare

This was the first story in the Rawlings Men BDSM series, and for various reason I didn’t read it before. Indeed it helps a lot to understand what will be the following development of the series: young and submissive blue collar constables, like Joe Hadley, who meet their Masters in older and handsome white collar professionals, like psychiatric Michael Rawlings.

That is the main theme of all the series, the various contrasts: blue collar workers against white collar professionals; young men against older gentlemen; law enforcement workers who need to be “mastered”, to let the power in someone else hands; professionals who should not let emotions take them who find their soul mate; and on, and on.

As usual the level of deepness of BDSM in the novellas by Kim Dare is on the average side: just enough to let you glimpse a complex world, but not too much to scare the more vanilla reader. More than real life commitment (24/7 Master/slave relationship), these BDSM relationships move on a more comfort stage, where yes, people enjoy their games but are not “life” dependant from them.
