    4.10 stars I am not a big lover of daddy kink and I am positive a few of my closest friends probably fell off their chairs, when they eventually noticed that I read 1209 and loved it. It helped that Henry was a worthy, adorable and twinky character who's sexual arousal had the right amount of sexiness and kink, so sweet. And big daddy Ryan was pretty hot too, nicely strong. I guess it worked fabulously for me because it was shortish *grins*. Although more of Henry and Ryan would be great, I'd love to find out how much more their relationship progresses.

    My prompt brought to fruition in "Apartment 1209"! Many thanks to Elizabeth Lister because she gave wings to the Daddy kink that I wanted. (Can you go wrong with Daddy kink? I think not!)This story ending up being BDSM-themed romantica which I enjoy. And when reading Elizabeth Lister I can expect lots o' kink!Henry has three jobs, is a college student and has no time for fun. But a certain watchful neighbor decides to help him out with his problem. Ryan, his older yummy, leatherdaddy, neighbor spends plenty of sessions to help bring peace, kink and love in Henry's lonely world.And did I mention Henry is a butt virgin?!There's sex toys galore, restraints and a St. Andrew's Cross put to good use!And some kinky hot sex!There's some substance with the sex, the two did not have an insta-love relationship. I appreciated the build because it's believable. ;)4.5 Stars for the story which delivers a delicious HEA!

    I think this was a well-written story that will appeal to lots of people who like smooshy, glittery BDSM. Sadly, that's not me, but that is in no way the author's fault. I find the story particularly interesting because it really highlights the gap (as I understand it) between what people who casually read BDSM for fun want from fictional power exchange relationships, and what actual practitioners of BDSM want from real power exchange relationships. Fantasy BDSM for casual (mainly female) readers: the top spends hours and hours and hours touching the bottom, making them cum, edging them, paddling them, flogging them, stroking their skin, talking to them, using toys on them, and generally providing the sort of intensive personal services I would imagine take a considerable amount of cold, hard cash to obtain IRL. It's all about the fantasy of having someone devote themselves to your enjoyment of sensuality. Time spent receiving sensations = 100%Time spent in service = 0% In contrast, gay erotica with a BDSM theme often focuses on service, with a healthy dose of humiliation thrown in for good measure. In no way am I suggesting this book is unusual in the genre, or that this is a poor book. It's really well done. I just find the descrepancy interesting. Does the popularity of the BDSM genre for female readers (and I include myself in this category) relate to a lack of sensation for readers IRL i.e. bad/quick/ordinary sex? I have no clue, but I'm very curious.

    3.75 stars rounded upUhm. So. Yeah. This is definitely not my usual kind of romance read. I do read stories with BDSM or Daddy-kink but mostly behind the GR scene (coughporncough) but for romance, those two things are not my choice of reading. I guess I let myself reading this mainly because my friend, Vio, who is not a fan of daddy-kink herself, gave this 4.20 stars. Well, I convince myself to give it a try.I must say that this story made me all tingly. In a good way. I loved that Henry was this adorable virgin young man who was just found out that his Daddy-kink. It was worth reading for him alone, as he discovering that he enjoyed the sensation big-leather-Daddy-Ryan gave him. It also helped that Ryan was pretty gentle to Henry. Ryan was not described as one of those cold standoffish kind of Dom. I thought Ryan not wanting Henry to go to his club because he felt that Henry was special as sweet. It helped me connect with the two characters. The reason that it didn't get my solid 4-stars was because some of the experiences were more telling (behind the screen) rather than showing. I also still didn't get why the super seemed to dislike Ryan very much (was he homophobic?). In overall, good, well-written kinky read.

    Great Writing..I've read Elizabeth Lister before and I LOVED what I've read. I was not disappointed with this shorty but juicy goodie! I want more tho! I want to know so much more about these guys, they just draw you in and you want to know that they are o.k. The twinky 'man' virgin sub & the leather daddy...what can be better than that combo?! Notta! Great Job!

    This short for the LHNB event is definitely for the BDSM lovers. Hot, sexy and naughty. I greatly enjoyed it. More scene focused than relationship focused since a short. Henry was adorable and I enjoyed watching him get under Ryan's skin. Would enjoy more about these two that hopefully would have their relationship strengthening while still keeping the sexy BDSM and daddy kink.

    I'm always overjoyed when I come across some book with an inexperienced twinky sub and older beefy Dom. Throw in a virginal MC and top it off with some daddy kink and I'm over the moon. I found all of it in this story but I'd have definitely enjoyed seeing more of the daddy play there. I was also a little disappointed with enumerating way of the story telling when it came to the first experience together after their very first intimate scene. I didn't want to be told retrospectively what happened and how it was. Instead I wanted to go through it and enjoy the feeling of it happening right before my eyes. Overall it was a very sweet and light reading anyway.

    What can I say besides what's there on the blurb and the tags. Leather daddy kink with really hot scenes and likeable characters.

    Oh man… what… a smexy, kinda schmaltzy read.Ms. Lister sure does have a knack for writing smut with a heart. I will say, I wish Ryan had been… more. Meaner, edgier, rougher, just more. I mean, the man owns a BDSM club & is an infamous Leather Daddy fer fucks sake, he shouldn't be a teddy bear. Exploring the age play would've been exciting too but alas… twas not to be.But I'm giving this 3 stars for what are, quite possibly, some of the best lines I've ever read:Henry has learned of Ryan's status in the leather community & at their next meeting says: “I guess you like leather.” “Yes. You could call me a devotee.” <---say it's not just me! *hooting, I hooted*“You are one delectable piece of fresh meat, young man.” <---people still use fresh meat?"One minute you’re a quivering, blushing violet. The next you’re a saucy little count.” <---mixed metaphor?“Jesus, Henry, that prick is gonna be the death of me.” <--- it's a weapon now? The end. That is all.

    Yes, I liked this little story of Henry and Ryan, yet another one in the LHNB series that has been so brilliant this summer. Henry is 20, lives alone, works different jobs and goes to college, and so has no 'me' time, but all of that changes one day when he meets his neighbour from Apartment 1209. 4 stars and

    I am a huge lover of daddy kink and was so looking forward to reading this book, especially after all the great reviews it received. I liked Ryan and Henry and the whole setup but there was no spark there for me, it lacked a little something.

    3.5 starsBDSM are pretty much way out of my comfort zone for reading. Because this one was short, after reading some of the reviews and being told I should try it I jumped in. All in all it was a really good story, I like both Ryan and Henry. I liked how Ryan was taking such good care of Henry, making sure he was comfortable with everything they were doing and was glad that the author let us know that there was a relationship outside of the bedroom. Ryan really seemed to care for Ryan. I think it would have been great if it was longer to really see their relationship.

    Yummmmm! This was just smokin' hot! I really loved Ryan and Henry, they were just hot and sweet and adorable all at the same time together. Loved the ending bit with the key, too sweet! Thanks for a wonderful story!

    What a wonderful short story. Thank you. It was just what I was looking for. I really liked how you made Ryan hold out on taking Henry. So many stories, they just jump into the sack quickly after meeting. Also, was happy how you gave Ryan and Henry some depth. Furthermore, the couple of sentences letting us know they did more than just play around and got along outside of the bedroom made me happy.

    Rowr! I enjoyed this hot and steamy kinky story between Henry and the much older Ryan. I like reading about Daddy kinks and this was just right up my alley. I would have loved to have a longer version of this story but all in all, this story was just wonderful to read.I liked that the author started by touching on a normal aspect of their relationship and not solely jumping into the BDSM side of things. Even if it was just a brief mention.What a great LHNB story!

    I really like the relationship dynamics, but I wish the development of their relationship had been shown more. The scenes we got were hot and kinky, so I feel cheated that other interesting visits were just mentioned and we didn't get to experience them.*** After a re-read, an updated review ***An inexperienced student exploring his submissive side? Count me in, it's one of my favorite tropes. Sweet Henry was such a needy sub, and so honest about what he wanted. The story was told from his POV, and I loved his voice. Ryan was the perfect Dom for him, caring and experienced. The set up was quite promising, and this story mostly delivered.Their first D/s scene together was so hot, I was LUSTING for more. This is where the mostly comes in. Almost all of the next scenes were off page and we were only told about them in a brief summary. It was like seeing a bunch of presents under the Christmas tree, only to be told you couldn't open and enjoy them. It was so disappointing. There were a couple more D/s scenes, and that last one was a treat, but I kept going back to that list of missed scenes. I wanted to know more about those scenes!Still, what we did get was worth a re-read, and I enjoyed it enough to up my rating to 4 stars, letting go of some of my disappointment over what was left out.Side notes:Their D/s relationship was more casual than other's I've read about.The Daddy kink only came in at the end.

    Short and somewhat kinky, but not rough in any way, this is the story of super-shy virgin Henry and his mysterious neighbor Ryan. Henry is attracted to him anyway, but the man is full of surprises, and once Henry finds out he owns a leather club, he just knows he has to submit to him.Henry's "adventures" are told in a lighthearted, slightly humorous way and it's very clear that he wants everything Ryan is willing to dish out. Ryan is not at all the gruff, tough leatherman Henry would have expected, and he loves that. They get up to a variety of kinky things together, and Henry loves it all.If you like sweet BDSM stories with a touch of humor, if you enjoy reading about a virgin being introduced to everything two men can do together, and if you're looking for a read that is hot and entertaining, then you will probably like this free short story.

    The writing was good and enjoyable. The BDSM was just fine. The story was lovely. But I had three problems.1) The beer. I wonder why the writer chose to write the Dom drinking beer before the first scene? That would ruin my trust for sure.2) The word Daddy. Yes, I saw in the Dear Author letter that that was asked for, and still decided to read this. My own fault. I hate that word used in sexual contexts. What is it? Incest (of the bad kind) play? *Throws up* Yes, I know the Leather Daddy culture, but that's what it makes me think of. That's probably the idea behind the culture because they use the word?!Why not Sir, Master, My Owner, anything but the D-word?3) No condom.I should have known there was a reason I'd passed this story before. And yet, without those three things this would've been a fine, well written story.

    4.5 stars - I do appreciate an angst free, sweet story (though not a steady diet) and this one filled the bill beautifully.The writing flowed with never a boring moment and the relationship developed evenly without rushing as is often the case in short stories. Wonderful job, Elizabeth, and I especially loved all the effort you put into making the cover special. BDSM, MM - Highly recommend.

    I want more!! I wish days 2-13 were spelt out. But the story worked this way. I can picture Henry as an adorable shy twink, and Ryan a dominating Daddy. I wanted to give Henry a huge high-five! :P“You... are the best... Daddy ever,” I said, still hard and aching to come, but loving the fact that I’d beaten him at his own game.

    Kinky-licious NSFW (view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)]Offered for FREE from the M/M Romance Group's Love Has No Boundaries Anthology: Volume 7. Thank you too all the amazing authors who participated!3.5 stars I'll admit I expected a little more, since everyone raved so much about this one. But it was good, kind of a sweet fluffy BDSM in that it revolved a lot around Henry's pleasure. No humiliation, spanking to the point of tears, etc. The Daddy twist really only showed up at the end. Since it's short, they basically show the first time they're together, the culminating fuck, and one in between, which worked well. A brief synopsis of their other scenes, which was fine so it didn't get redundant. But I would have liked to have seen that coffee date. The impression I got from the beginning was that Ryan was interested in Henry as more than just his 'boy' (view spoiler)[I had a feeling he stole the key for an intro, and had deeper feelings, obviously with the "I'm not sharing" business (hide spoiler)], and although that was implied at the end, I would have liked to hear him say it.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>
