Master Ian isn’t into the public scenes offered at fetish clubs, but one look at sub Kale Daniels, a favorite among the Onyx club crowd, and Ian wants to know Kale. Kale is no ordinary submissive and needs a special kind of Master who will understand his desires and needs and turn them into reality. Has Master Ian found his new submissive, or will Kale decide he just wants the play?

Mychael Black and Shayne Carmichael’s Onyx takes us into the world of BDSM and the first meeting of Ian and Kale. The scenes are intense between the men. Ian shows his skills as a Master and his caring nature as a man. Kale is smart, handsome and his response leave Ian’s eyeteeth aching for more. The authors have a way of creating a story filled with stimuli while balancing it with messages about trust and respect. The characters personalities pop and make them feel like old friends while their fears whispered to me through their actions and conversations. Most think of Masters as strong individuals with honed control, but understanding Ian’s worries made him more appealing to me. I’m looking forward to seeing where Ian and Kale’s adventure takes them.
