"His Alone" by Keta Diablo


SERIES: Stand-alone
PUBLISHER: Keta Diablo
GENRE: Erotica (BDSM)
SOURCE: Author
LINKS: Goodreads

Cleo has a problem. When she met Elliott, the maestro of Doms, eight months ago, he laid out the rules—no questions, no whining, and definitely no ties. But the lines blurred somewhere along the line and she crossed them. Now, she's in over her head with feelings for the beautiful man she shouldn't covet. For her own preservation, she must end their weekly sessions and eat her heart in the process. But her Dom has problems of his own. Has he stepped over the same hazy boundaries?
Submission. Bondage. Decadence.


Subs can't use an inappropriate tone, call their Doms with their real names or question them about whatever they like. If anything like that happens, there are going to be consequences/punishments for the Sub. In "His Alone", Elliott steps back and lets this kind of behaviours go (apart from once). Of course, as the blurb says he has problems of his own and I did expect a change of heart (so to speak), but perhaps more gradually? Months have passed since he and Cleo started it all, but since we don't get to see any of that and Cleo affirms Elliott is a real Master, I would have definitely liked to see him more in control and with a firm hand. At least to start with.

Overall, the plot was fluent and the read pretty quick. Unfortunately, I haven't felt the right involvement with the characters and that put me down. But I honestly wouldn't mind giving other stories by Diablo a try.

RATING: 2.5/5
