Okay, I ll start by saying that I didn t really understand the whole concept of domestic discipline, but it did make for an enjoyable story I liked Damian I liked Jeff, too But I didn t love either It was a pretty low steam story, actually But the way the series is going forward like a family growing together is the most wonderful aspect.However, I can t say that there was something so outstanding that will make me reread the book again Having said that, the little surprise at the end was Okay, I ll start by saying that I didn t really understand the whole concept of domestic discipline, but it

sugar rush Such an amazing feat the author pulled off It was simply amazing to keep in touch with the previous couples as we were getting acquainted with new ones, and for this reason alone, I am happy to read the next one Because what does it say about the book that I wasexcited and on edge to read about what was troubling Leo and Alex and how far Peter was coming along than reading about the main characters of this book I did like the fact that there wasn t too much angst after the story got a good deal in, but the characters weren t memorable, at all 4.25 starsI m totally hooked on this series these books always make me think, and Damian s Discipline is no different Even though I added this to my Dom sub bdsm shelf, this is not a D s book but a Domestic Discipline book What s the difference The story does a much better job explaining it than I ever could, but DD doesn t involve scenes or a Master sub relationship Instead, the focus is on rules and consequences, on one person making decisions for both people in a relationship When Jeff 4.25 starsI m totally hooked on this series these books always make me think, and Damian s Discipline is no different Even though I added

broken boy If you ve read book 3 about Scott and Ben, you ll remember Scott is lured to England by a prostitution ring with a fake story and picture That picture was one of Jeff, whom Scott eventually sees on the street I didn t realize until past the halfway point that this book overlaps with the timeline in book 3 We hear about Ben s accident and Scott leaving for the States We see not just Ben and Scott but Thomas and his boy Peter, as well as the fabulous Leo and Alex I really liked seeing the other couples again Even Andrew and Gareth from book 4 are mentioned Even so, the focus is on Damian and Jeff This book deals with abuse, rape, and trauma, which are handled with sensitivity and grace Damian and Jeff s relationship does not begin as a sexual or even a romantic one Initially, Damian, who is 29 to Jeff s 19, is an almost paternal figure to Jeff He serves as a keeper, a mentor.Jeff is afraid and angry He reverts to what he knows and makes foolish choices And even though Damian is always patient, he s not perfect Both men need to work on trust and honesty It was difficult watching Jeff repeat his self destructive behavior patterns, and evenso watching both men hide within themselves instead of talking about their feelings If you re wanting scorching scenes and instant sex, you ll be disappointed The relationship between Damian and Jeff takes a long time to develop But this book wasn t slow, far from it I found the tension and build up lovely and realistic And even though we have to wait for the steam, it s well worth it in the end I am not ashamed to admit I shed a few tears while reading this book Jeff s pain and anguish tore at me, and Damian s talk with Oliver about broke my heart The ending was wonderful and overflowing with love I definitely recommend this one for fans of the series.If you haven t read any of the Collars and Cuffs book, start with book 1, as this is not a standalone book 4.25 StarsWe met Jeff in the Someone to Keep Me

but recently he wasn t really active there After he lost his last sub lover, he gave up being a Dominant When Jeff was taken to Damian s home he couldn t trust him at all And because of his situation, it was obvious the D s style living wasn t for him So Damian find another solution, a good one but apparently it wasn t enough This story was a bit different from other stories in this series The solution that Damian chose was a bit similar to D s style living but at the same time it was waaay different So it hasn t any BDSM scene there It was a bit angsty I liked both characters and I enjoyed their relationship My fave part in this book was the last chapter and it wasn t about these two characters I loved that chapter Told in dual POV, 1st person Overall, I liked it and I hope you enjoy it as well Another top notch read in the Collars and Cuffs series, although strictly speaking this wasn t about BDSM, but Domestic Discipline Really well written by KC and Will, this was sooo much better than Someone to Keep Me Gritty and realistic, this is not a looking at the world through rose coloured spectacles type of storyno, not at all I loved the change to 1st person POV too 4.5 stars from me

of storyno, not at all I loved the change to 1st person POV too 4.5 stars from me We meet Jeff in Someone to Keep Me as he is the person that Scott has come all the way from the US to meet Of course, we ve since discovered that that evil git Curtis Rogers was grooming Scott in internet chat rooms and using Jeff s picture as his cover Even though he s in jail, the spectre of Rogers still looms large over certain members of the population in Manchester, circling overhead like an extremely hungry vulture just waiting for its next meal to finally tire of life Since being turfed out of his home when he came out, Jeff has had to live in filthy squalor like a tramp, and been forced to endure unspeakable horrors by Rogers and his cronies whilst being hooked on pills He s 19, his education came to abrupt halt when he left home, he has nowhere to go and no one to helpuntil he meets Scott again.Scott, being Scott gets everyone involved, and it was wonderful to catch up with the gang again Leo, Alex, Thomas, Peter, Ben, Scott, Pietroeven Laura, the psychiatrist that helped Peter work through his nightmares from his incarceration with Curtis Rogers, gets involved with Jeff but the person that helps Jeff the most is Damian Damian has been on his own for 2 years, since the death of his sub Oliver, and he is the first person that Leo turns to when he hears what Jeff has gone through That s all you re getting from me folks, go get this story There were some really touching moments in the story the graveyard scene in particular with Damian talking things through with Oliver made me get the box of tissues out and the wonderful, wonderful wedding scene right at the endmy heart just melted into a puddle of goo Thank you so much KC and Will for letting my favourite couple have a day to remember Many thanks once again KC for the ARC Big smooch When Damian s Discipline came up on Goodreads I immediately added it to my BDSM shelf, but now that I ve finished I removed it Yes, it is part of a series where the books all revolve around a BDSM club and couples that live the lifestyle in some form, but this book is different and I wouldn t want someone who shies away from BDSM to miss out on a wonderful story This book can easily be read as a standalone, but if you ve been following the series, the timeline runs parallel with Scott and Ben When Damian s Discipline came up on Goodreads I immediately added it to my BDSM shelf, but now that I ve finished I removed it Yes, it is part of a series where the books all revolve around a BDSM club and couples that live the lifestyle in some form, but this book is different and I wouldn t want someone who shies away from BDSM to miss out on a wonderful story This book can easily be read as a standalone, but if you ve been following the series, the timeline runs parallel with Scott and Ben s story, Someone To Keep Me, starting at the point where where Scott first meets Jeff Jeff is not looking to be a part of the BDSM lifestyle, but is looking to get off the street and away from the abuse and trauma he has suffered Damian is a Dom, who lost his sub two year prior He is not looking for a replacement, but wants to help Jeff get his life back on track by offering shelter and encouragement Jeff has numerous issues to work through including difficulty trusting anyone who is offering something for nothing, but the two men find a way to live together with a set of rules that gives Jeff stability and, at his request, someone to make decisions for him and guide him While this is new territory for both men they work together to find a routine, albeit with a few stumbling blocks along the way There is not a quick fix for Jeff s issues and he has to work hard to avoid falling back into old, destructive behaviors There is beauty in watching a relationship slowly develop between the two men based on trust, understanding and respect, and the reward is watching Jeff blossom and learn to accept himself as someone worthy of love and happiness It is a long time before Damian starts to feel an attraction, and starts to reevaluate what he needs from a relationship, but it was anything but a slow story The pacing felt natural and realistic and when the two men finally acknowledge their feelings for each other it was explosive I liked getting the points of view from both main characters since they are coming from such different places There are appearances from most of the characters in the prior books and a very happy surprise for at least one of the couples If you like a romance with a slow build and a relationship built on respect, trust and love, you will want to read this book I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This series keeps getting better and better I love that so many people from all the books continue throughout and support new mc s It s beautiful to see 5 amazing stars I can t wait for the next book. There was virtually no communication throughout 95% of the book which was extremely frustrating I didn t particularly care for either Peter was was very na ve and Damian who didn t follow his own rules. 4.5 Stars Another Great addition to the Collars and Cuffs SeriesIt is time to join the guys of Collars and Cuffs again only this time Authors K.C Wells and Parker Williams add a new twist, Domestic Discipline If you have not ever heard of Domestic Discipline then take the time to read up on it so you can fully understand and appreciate this book as it is not your typical BDSM relationship.Our main characters in this story are Jeff who is living a nightmare of a life, selling his body and add 4.5 Stars Another Great addition to the Collars and Cuffs SeriesIt is time to join the guys of Collars and Cuffs again only this time Authors K.C Wells and Parker Williams add a new twist, Domestic Discipline If you have not ever heard of Domestic Discipline then take the time to read up on it so you can fully understand and appreciate this book as it is not your typical BDSM relationship.Our main characters in this story are Jeff who is living a nightmare of a life, selling his body and addicted to pills Damian, a Dom at Collars and Cuffs, is suffering from grief after the loss of his submissive When Jeff is introduced to the Collars and Cuffs group, Damian is asked to take him on temporarily until he can get his life together It should be noted that while Damian has agreed to help Jeff, Jeff is not a submissive and has no desire to be a submissive.Damian is able to quickly see that while Jeff does not have full submissive tendencies he does need someone to help him return structure and balance to his life After researching Damian suggests they enter a D d relationship as a way to provide both of them what they need.I really enjoyed how the authors went above and beyond to show the benefits of a D d relationship, how it is established and then the repercussions and discipline aspect of the relationship It was great watching these two men start out slow and grow into lovers with a power exchange aspect added to the mix, satisfying the Dominant part of Damian.Characters from past books make appearances in this book as well including Leo and Alex, Thomas and Peter, Ben and Scott, and Andrew and Gareth It was great catching up with them all again and seeing what they were up to while adding in a new couple, Damian and Jeff.The audio book was narrated by Nick J Russo who was also the narrator for previous books in series I appreciate that the author brought back the same narrator and that he did such an awesome job Nick has the ability to add a layer of sparkle to the books His tone, inflection, cadence and overall production quality is always superb and as a listener you really couldn t ask forfrom the narrator.Another great addition to the Collars and Cuffs SeriesReview Copy provided by Dreamspinner Press in exchange for an honest review Reviewed by Jaime from Alpha Book Club DNF at 50% I m not sure if it s me or the book I did like the other books in this series, but I didn t like the writing of this one It could be that I ve read so many books since then that I can t enjoy this type of writing any.The prologue is a couple of pages long and we don t get eased into the story, the story is dropped on us And it was so unrealistic that I wanted to DNF right then and there.Let me sum up the things that bothered me.Damien is a professional book reviewer Euhm wai DNF at 50% I m not sure if it s me or the book I did like the other books in this series, but I didn t like the writing of this one It could be that I ve read so many books since then that I can t enjoy this type of writing any.The prologue is a couple of pages long and we don t get eased into the story, the story is dropped on us And it was so unrealistic that I wanted to DNF right then and there.Let me sum up the things that bothered me.Damien is a professional book reviewer Euhm wait what This is a paying job Yeah, I don t think so..I m guessing we would ALL apply if such a job existed.And then Jeff. I am the first one to admit I suffer from a knight in shining armor saves hot boy who needs rescuing fetish I really do But this was so over the top, it was not realistic All I wanted to do was kick Jeff s butt.And Damien, he was so stiff no pun intended unfortunately.And because of Jeff s past, sex would have to wait I never got to the sex parts I don t have a problem with a slow burner, I actually prefer it in my books, but I was kind of hoping some hot BDSM sex would save this book for me No such luck.It does deserve a praise for the fact it is mentioned that Jeff has gonorrhea Yay, finally a rentboy with an STD.So nay for the story, yay for the gonorrhea Wow This series just keeps getting better and better This story touched on themes that I ve never heard of before and I really enjoyed following Damian and Jeff as they discovered just what their relationship was to each other At times it was really serious and my heart broke for both MC s and then at other times I laughed my arse off at their interactions.A touching, beautiful, compassionate and sometimes tragic story Thank the gods for happily ever aftersI also got the added treat o Wow This series just keeps getting better and better This story touched on themes that I ve never heard of before and I really enjoyed following Damian and Jeff as they discovered just what their relationship was to each other At times it was really serious and my heart broke for both MC s and then at other times I laughed my arse off at their interactions.A touching, beautiful, compassionate and sometimes tragic story Thank the gods for happily ever aftersI also got the added treat of seeing past characters and how their lives had progressed Peter what an awesome young manWell done
