Book Description:

Give me six months, and I'll give you the world.

Brandon McKinney has scraped and sacrificed for what little in life he's ever had. Though it's been fifteen years since he escaped his father's abuse, the damage remains. Trust seems as far out of reach as his dream of becoming an architect, and though he's come to accept being gay, he can't deny the shame and confusion he feels at other urges--the deeply repressed desire to submit.

Jonathan Watkins is a self-made Silicon Valley billionaire whose ex-wife took half his money and even more of his faith. Comfortable as a Dominant but wary of being hurt again, he resorts to anonymous pickups and occasional six-month contracts with subs seeking only a master, not a lover.

When a sizzling back-alley encounter cues Jonathan in to Brandon's deep-seated submissive side, he makes the man an offer: Give me six months of your life, and I'll open your eyes to a whole new world. Brandon doesn't care about that; all he wants is the three million dollars Jonathan's offering so he can buy the construction company he works for. But he soon learns that six months on his knees is no easy feat, and shame and pride may keep him from all he ever wanted-and all he never dreamed he had any right to have.

Reader discretion advised. This title contains heavy kink. While consent is clearly established and frequently reaffirmed, some moments in Power Play push hard against the outer edges of consent.


Wow. I have to say that even though I read the description for this book—I had no idea it was going to be so intense.

I loved it! I didn’t read any reviews before I started the book, though I had saw Power Play around on the web a lot and am familiar with +Rachel Haimowitz; add that together with the overall appeal of the book description and I have been waiting to read this one for a while now.

I loved it! Power Play: Resistance is the first book of the Power Play series and this first book is aptly named. Brandon has submissive desires but he also has a dark past, stubborn pride and shame in his desires. He fights Jonathan tooth and nail as they start out their six month agreement.

I liked both Brandon and Jonathan; I think they
were a great match for each other and the swirling emotion and heavy kinky scenes made this book a highly intense read. A must read for anyone looking for a really good, meaningful, BDSM book. This is definitely not just a book about kinky sex though, but one about Brandon fighting his desires because he feels shame for them.

Power Play: Resistance is definitely not a book that I am going to forget anytime soon and I cannot wait to read more about Brandon and Jonathan’s journey in Power Play: Awakening. Especially after the ending of Resistance!

I have no doubt that authors Rachel Haimowitz and Cat Grant are going to deliver another book that will keep me on the edge of my seat.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a deep and more intense look on BDSM.

4 Moons!
