Review: By His Rules by J.A. Rock #FMBBooks

Author: J.A. Rock
Genre: Male/Male Romance, BDSM, Erotica Romance, Contemporary Romance,
Publisher: Loose Id
Format: Ebook
Length: 248

Book Description:

Aiden Cole can be anything men want—naughty schoolboy, palace slave, virgin twink, or slutty secretary. He’s a gifted actor with a gorgeous body who gives legendary head. Aiden could have his pick of any Top in the local leather bar, but is drawn to Scott Runge—a cruel, sexy Dom who pushes Aiden to his limits, allowing Aiden to experience the excitement and danger of the BDSM lifestyle to a degree he never has before. But when Scott goes too far, injuring Aiden, Aiden withdraws from the BDSM scene completely. Until he meets Keaton Hughes.

Keaton’s looking for something he can’t find in any dungeon: A domestic discipline relationship, in which he can provide his partner with guidance, support, and loving discipline. When Keaton takes Aiden in after Aiden’s traumatic encounter with Scott, he vows not to pursue any sort of relationship with the troubled sub. But as Aiden struggles to overcome the damage Scott has done and get his life back on track, Keaton’s rules might be just what he needs.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable: BDSM theme and content, dubious consent, male/male sexual practices, violence.


Okay I really liked this one. It is one of the very few domestic discipline books that I have read. In fact I have only read one other series (free, four books and ongoing) that was domestic discipline so this new one was a wonderful find and I didn't even know it was going to be DD! It was another spur of the moment by that mostly caught my attention by the book cover and title.

So it was to my surprise and delight when By His Rules took that turn, as I was not really enjoying what was going on between Aiden and Scott. He was harming Aiden, not hurting
because pain is usually a part of BDSM, he actually harming him both physically and mentally. Aiden was so confused which made it even worse and made my heart hurt for him.

When we learn a little more about Keaton and that he is looking for a DD relationship I was so excited, as I admit it is something that appeals to me and is quite different than most D/s relationships.

When Aiden moves in with Keaton for some time to heal and get back on his feat after the horrid relationship with Scott they are very drawn to each other and soon a DD relationship forms. It turns out to be exactly what Aiden needs in his life. But Aiden is still fragile and we follow him through his healing, worries, fears and more. It was a very good look on DD (though the first half of the book was not DD) from what I know of it and I look forward to more by this author.

I admit I am hoping for another DD relationship book as this is the first one I have found besides the one series. ^^

I would highly recommend By His Rules to anyone who is looking for a good look on DD lifestyle--I think it had a pretty real and not too fictional look on it--and to anyone looking for a good m/m contemporary BDSM read. Though I do warn that it is not for everyone. Please read the publisher's note and keep in mind that Aiden does go through an abusive relationship.

4 Moons!
