How can he want to call his best friend’s son Sir? Or even worse…Daddy?
Cornell is broken after losing his best friend Jonas and getting hurt himself. He’s too old, too imperfect to ever attract a Dom again.
When Rhys gives him commands, Cornell yearns to obey.
When Rhys takes care of him, Cornell wants to kneel for him.
When Rhys is everything he’s dreamed of, Cornell aches to call him Sir.
And when Rhys makes him fly, Cornell soars higher than ever before.
But there’s one problem. Rhys is twenty years his junior…and he’s Jonas’s son. How can you call your best friend’s son Sir…or Daddy
Imagine sitting down to enjoy your favorite meal.🍷🍝 In the center of the table is your most favorite decadent dessert. 🎂 You know as soon as you take the first bite of your meal you are going to savor every delicious mouthful, and no matter how full you get, that dessert will be waiting at the perfect moment to make your taste buds soar even higher than your entree did. 😋 That’s what reading, “Firm Hand,” was like for me.
It was a delectable slow burn MM Romance, with enough D/s, Reverse Daddy/ boy kink, and sMMexy goodness to satisfy even the most finicky reader. Mmm… So good!💋
Even though the book began with a tragedy that would bring about the much deserved HEA for our MCs, the style and class with which the story is presented is quintessentially, Nora Phoenix. 💜🌈💚
My heart was broken and I could feel Cornell’s grief. He lost his dearest friend, nearly his own life, he would never be able to sub again because of the extent of his injuries, not that many Doms were lining up for him because of his age. So, all those emotions, ripped my guts to shreds for him.😭
Enter, one Knight in shining leather, Rhys! Cornell’s Godson and best friend’s son. Physical therapist by trade who has had a “thing” for Cornell since he was 16. He also has a secret he is keeping from Cornell that could drive them apart, if he doesn’t rectify it soon. But, what is a good romance without a little angst and drama, right?!? 🎭
So many perfect blends in this story, from the pacing, character development, just wonderful storytelling, burning each page, Phoenix style!🔥
