Override (The Underground Club #1) by SJD Peterson (4 Stars)

Will insecurities keep Donavan from finding true love and exploring his submissive side?

Donavan Gregory is tall, built, and struggling to find somebody who can understand his need to submit. Seth Manning is smart, confident, and looking for somebody willing to submit to him in the bedroom. The attraction between these two was instant, but building a lasting relationship will take a bit longer.

Donavan is self-conscious about his lack of money and a college degree. He’s concerned that Seth’s physical attraction to him will eventually wear off. He’s also never been in a relationship before, and he’s worried about how quickly he’s falling for Seth. However, Seth is a smart doctor, and he realizes how amazing Donavan is and has no intention of letting him go. Although Seth comes from money, he worked very hard to become a doctor. He appreciates that Donavan works hard regardless of the type of work Donavan does. He just has to convince Donavan of this fact.

Donavan’s insecurity added a little bit of anxiety to the relationship, but it never created any serious drama. The majority of the time, we were treated to some erotic fun at the club and in Seth’s home and playroom. The submission was limited to their sexual interactions, and included bondage, spanking, and flogging. It was sweet to watch these two enjoy each other’s company on dates and with family and friends. Donavan’s friend, Cain, played a fun role in the story, and I hope we get a chance to see him find happiness.

A sweet story about two people finding a connection without regard to physical attributes or financial status.

BLURB

Don’t judge a book by its cover….

At over six feet, with a body honed in the gym, auto worker Donavan Gregory is used to people assuming he’s a dominant top. Unfortunately, they’re wrong, and Donavan’s desire to explore his submissive side goes unfulfilled.

Smaller and older than Donavan, Doctor Seth Manning might not look like a typical dominant, but when the two men meet at Pride, Donavan realized Seth might be his perfect counterpart. The trouble is, Donavan doesn’t have as much experience with the BDSM world as he’d like. What could an educated, handsome, and confident man like Seth possibly see in someone like him? Seth must convince him that despite the differences on the surface, when it comes to kinky fun and discovery, they’ll fit together just fine.
