Mischa and Tom’s first meeting was totally by accident, yet once these two get together, nothing is going to keep them apart.

CB Conwy’s A Russian Bear is an excellent story set within the BDSM world and tells the tale of a young man whose introduction into BDSM was not only unexpected, but was also just supposed to be a ‘one off’. The author does a wonderful job walking both Tom and the reader through his journey of self-discovery. Tom’s mixed feelings regarding his new needs are realistic and come across believably. Mischa’s growing feelings for Tom also ring true and the reader can see this tough Dom start to fall. Although it takes the men some time to acknowledge their feelings for each other, it is easy for the reader to see their feelings right from the beginning. When an act of violence disturbs Mischa and Tom’s lives, the story really comes alive, as Mischa tries to make things right once again.

A Russian Bear has just the right mix of sweet and kink to hold any readers attention. The author’s ability to bring both the characters, and the BDSM world, to life makes this a not-to-be-missed story. I will be eagerly waiting for more from this author.
