Title: Power Play
Author: Cara Dee
Genre: M/M Romance
POV: First Person – Male
Abel Novak-Hayes was born different but had an excellent support system including a close family friend, Madigan (Mad) Monroe. For years Madigan helped him overcome his issues and that closeness made him crave for more.
I could pick up the tension in a room crazy easily, and it was suffocating when that tension was filled with anger and pain. It landed like a heavy blanket over my chest.
I liked both Abel and Mad. They were good together for DDlb dynamic. Mad was nurturing but not condescending. Abel was cute with A restrained brattiness. I do wish I get to see more of Abel’s personal struggles though.
“That’s it, baby. You’re Daddy’s filthy little come slut.”
I was also hoping the sex was hotter. I felt one character held back too much. Thankfully one particular scene towards the end made up for it.
“Fucking perfect… Christ, I just wanna take you until you scream. Until you don’t know if it’s too much pleasure or too much pain.”
Power Play is a story of pursuing what the heart wants. It would appeal to readers who enjoy Daddy kink.
I love Abel’s best friend Gray
Before starting this book I didn’t realize it’s part of a standalone collection. I’ve never read any of the other books and at times I was confused with the many additional characters appearances especially when I didn’t know their significance to the main characters.
