The dreaded day had arrived. And this year, February 14th had a dual meaning. Not only was it Valentine’s Day, but it was also Valentine’s day. Since his breakup with his boyfriend, Valentine Giovanni, a month ago, Deke’s life seemed meaningless. What had he expected? The moment Val found out he’d cheated on him, the shit hit the fan . . . and Deke’s shoes hit the pavement.
Deke is distraught, wishes he’d been brave enough to be honest with his lover and Master, Valentine. Instead his failure to communicate his fears has led him into the arms of another man. Once separated, Deke reevaluates his fear and insecurities and is determined to find a way to convince Valentine to give their relationship another chance. Little does he know Val hasn’t stopped thinking about him too and proves very forgiving—as long as Deke submits his body and soul to his Master—and then Valentine gives everything he has right back. This is a short, sweet, hot M/M read and will completely satisfy any reader who loves this genre!
