A Dom and His Warrior
by Xenia Melzer
A Club Whisper Novel
Leeland Drake and Jonathan White are a committed BDSM couple and have just moved in together. Leeland has only one year left in college, and everything seems perfect… until Leeland’s uncle asks him to stand in for an injured UFC fighter.
Leeland wants to help his uncle, but he remembers all too well from his years competing in martial arts how strenuous life as an athlete can be. He doesn’t want to risk his relationship with Jonathan. After some discussion, they decide Leeland will go pro for a year.
As if the training and strict diet weren’t bad enough, the pressure skyrockets when Leeland encounters homophobic fighter Noah Adams—especially when they end up facing each other in the championship.
Between the bigoted rants of his opponent, the scrutiny of the media, the pressure from his sponsor, and a fire in his uncle’s gym, Leeland is close to breaking down. Only Jonathan’s support and love keep him focused enough to set foot in the octagon once more—and maybe even walk away a winner.

MMy Thoughts and Review:
Leeland and Richard started dating in book one when Master Richard discovered that the small sub could bring big bad Doms down in just a couple moves. Richard liked that Leeland could handle himself and Leeland…well, Leeland simply liked Richard and had for sometime.
After dating for several months the two make a go of living together. When Leeland gets a call from his uncle/ godfather asking him to stand in for the upcoming UFC circuit Leeland feels he can’t say no to family. After discussing it with his Dom and partner he agrees to help out.
Leeland trains hard and meets fierce competition in the octagon. He makes new friends, but he also makes enemies. People who don’t like his integrity, his niceness to the media, and even his “pretty” looks. It becomes a great big mosh pit of bigotry filled with hate. It made my heart hurt a couple of times, but I loved how Leeland stood his ground and stayed the better man. I also loved how Richard stood beside him taking care of his every need, but never attempting to take over. He was just Leeland’s port in the $h!t-storm. I loved that!💕
My favorite part, as with book two, are the secondary characters. All the friends who make up what I call, “the sub club.” Of course, what good is a sub without their Doms, right? These guys might look all big and bad, but when it comes to caring for their friends and family, they are giant Teddy-bears who like to growl a lot. 😂
I am loving this lil community of people, where everyone is different but each are loved.💗 On to book four!📖
I read a complimentary copy of this book from LesCourt and am voluntarily leaving an honest and unbiased review. 💋
