Dominion: Gods and Slaves, Book 1

Dominion (Gods and Slaves Series Book 1) - Heidi Ryan, Nicholas Bella

 

Well...if Master Bella has not gone and done it again!  This was so bloodydamn great. My heavens...and so worth the wait! It has been at least 6 months since we began to be teased with promises of gladiators, hard core sex, graphic violence and language and this one delivers...and delivers brilliantly.

 

I cannot wait to see where this goes from here.

 

The world building here is just so well done and the characters being formed rival what I loved so much about The New Haven Series.  Mateo is such a strong and incredibly rich character and of course seeing how his relationship with Eloy grows or changes as the story progresses will be just awesome to see. Plus there is Titus, who I love already.

 

In the earlier days since arriving at the ludus, Mateo had been meek, afraid and uncertain of what would be his fate. He now had some understanding, and he also began to see that if he were to survive, he had to cast away whatever timid feelings he had. He was in a world of warriors and barbarians. They were used to taking what they wanted, giving no apologies, and killing for sport and glory. If he was going to rise in status, he had to become someone new, someone without fear and doubt. He had to become a gladiator.

 

Indeed he does.

 

 

I cannot recommend this one enough!  Bravo Master Bella on another winner!!

The god of life was on to something when he made sex feel this good.

As if I needed another excuse to watch this movie.

 

 

And this is totally how I envision Mateo.

Michael: Reinvented

Michael, Reinvented (Delta Restorations) - Diana Copland

I really enjoyed this a lot, especially the interactions and banter between Michael and Gil, David and Michael and Manny and Vern. ❤❤❤ Jackson remained the solid force holding this amazing group of men together and the strength of these friendships is quite beautiful. 

 

As an Architect, I love the design elements and the descriptions of their renovation projects are so well done. This current project would be quite the transformation to see unfold. 

 

This really cannot be read out of order. The story truly is a continuation of the first book and leaves things more than open for a third...which I can only assume to be Manny's book. 

 

Some truly lovely moments were included here but in the end it fell a little short for me as I felt it ended a little too quickly. I needed more of Gil and Michael as a couple. So I only hope we get more of them in future installments. Can't wait.

Manny’s small smile was beautiful. “We’ve got you.”

“Good Lord, how did you ever get away with anything when you were a kid?” David looked at Michael, frowning slightly. “You have ‘my boyfriend just blew me’ all over your face.”
