Anyone who frequents Collars & Cuffs knows Dorian Forrester is built for pain, including Dorian himself. But everyone has it wrong. For six years, Dorian’s chased a feeling that remains tantalizingly out of his reach. Unteachable, Dorian can take anything and everything a Dom can throw at him. Still, it’s not enough. Dorian needs… something more. Something he won’t find at Collars & Cuffs.

Dorian’s search takes him out of the safe environment he’s known for years, out of his depth, and into a realm of deep, dark trouble.

Alan Marchant has been watching Dorian with interest for a while and knows there’s more to Dorian than his label of “pain slut” suggests. When Dorian disappears, Alan and his friend, Leo, set out to find him. But the disoriented young man discovered cowering in a hotel room is not the Dorian they know and love. That Dorian is shattered. It’s up to Alan to pick up the pieces and show Dorian there are better ways to fly.

They may be off on a new journey together, but their destination will rock them both to the core.

If there’s a book to turn people’s pre-conceived notion of BDSM and D/s relationships on its head then this one is an excellent place to start.

I’ve loved reading each book in the Collars and Cuffs series and following the progress of the different D/s relationships. The club owners, Leo and Thomas,  go up in my estimation with each story. They represent all that is safe and trustworthy in the scene.

Based on the title, Make Me Soar, I expected K.C. to delve into really weird kink in order for the main character to achieve his goal of reaching subspace and especially as he was known as a “pain slut”. K.C. wonderfully shows through Dorian and Alan’s relationship that it’s not all leather, whips, chains and ball gags.  Okay, so there’s leather, but still…

In the previous books in the series Dorian is portrayed as an unpopular sub, but in this story we discover his true nature and motives. Alan is perfect for him, and expertly handles Dorian, guiding him as his Dom and his lover in his own unique way. Their developing relationship and connection is beautifully shown though various scenes, sexual and otherwise. These two characters come across as genuine and believable, and the reader is taken on a heartfelt journey as the two men get to know each other and realize what is important to them. They each confront tragic events from the past and together they overcome all the emotional and negative baggage. The scenes in the Collars and Cuff club are superbly written and were perfect for the story and the characters.

 I enjoyed all the other stories, but I think this one has become my favourite. Highly recommended reading. I loved it.

Born and raised in the north-west of England, K.C. WELLS always loved writing. Words were important. Full stop. However, when childhood gave way to adulthood, the writing ceased, as life got in the way. K.C. discovered erotic fiction in 2009, when the purchase of a ménage storyline led to the startling discovery that reading about men in love was damn hot. In 2012, arriving at a really low point in life led to the desperate need to do something creative.
An even bigger discovery waited in the wings—writing about men in love was even hotter….
K.C. now writes full-time and is loving every minute of her new career. The laptop still has no idea of what hit it… it only knows that it wants a rest, please. And it now has to get used to the idea that where K.C goes, it goes.
And as for those men in love that she writes about? The list of stories just waiting to be written is getting longer… and longer….
K.C. loves to hear from readers.
