All Constable Hadley wants to do is put the last few weeks behind him. As if being taken hostage wasn’t bad enough, he’s had to deal with all the stupid publicity that’s surrounded him ever since.

As if being taken hostage wasn’t bad enough, he’s had to deal with all the stupid publicity that’s surrounded him ever since. And the fact that he hasn’t slept since that night isn’t helping him feel any better about the world either. The last thing Hadley needs is a shrink wandering around inside his head trying to dig up all his dirty little secrets. When he finds out he’s being sent to Dr. Rawlings—the man he’s had a crush on for months—Hadley knows his life has finally hit rock bottom. The only thing that could make things worse for Hadley would be Dr. Rawlings finding out how he feels about him. But fate wouldn’t be that cruel to him—would it? Male/Male, BDSM, Erotic Romance

    This was one hot short story. My only complaint is that it ended too soon. The story just stopped right when things were getting good. I'm looking forward to reading the next in the series though. I hope we see more of the two main characters from Handcuffs and Leather.

This close to Christmas, I'm skint and will have to manage my frustration over not being able to read more of these character's lives until next year.

    *wails* TOO SHORT KIM, too short! Okay, so the title is Rawlings M e n #1. How is Rawling going to have more than one man? I am not sure I think he should make Hadley share him. When are you going to have characters with generic names like Tom, Dave or John? LOL

    I liked this story but I agree with the other reviewers: it was way too short. It was a great start to an interesting relationship between the cop, Hadley, and a psychiatrist, Rawlings. Hadley is very hesitant about his submissive nature. All he has to go by is dreams, but he's a natural once Rawlings shows him what it can be like. At the end of the story Hadley is still very confused and I would love to see how he works through that confusion and truly comes to terms with what he wants.

At the end of the story Hadley is still very confused and I would love to see how he works through that confusion and truly comes to terms with what he wants. Rawlings is in love with Hadley, but has to hold back (until the very end) because he knows saying this will confuse Hadley. I think he's a great Dom, for reading his new sub so clearly, but I wanted to see more of how he coaxes Hadley out of his emotional shell! Overall, the way the two men learn to interact an trust each other was wonderful. This is going to appeal to you if you like the softer, more emotional side to a BDSM relationship.

    Charming and enigmatic. I kind of wonder why Rawlings jumps right in to the almost-hard-core BDSM play with Hadley right off, but Hadley's a big boy and I could deal with it. My favorite scene? In the very beginning when Hadley admits his dreams to his psychologist ... and Rawlings breaks his pen in half. ^__^;; First read: October 2010 Second Read: January 2011

    A quick little D/s story about a submissive cop and his crush who happens to be both a Dominant and the psychiatrist who is treating him. Fast but very hot and fun.

Rating: 5/10 PROS: - I love reading stories in which a character who’s always yearned to be dominant or submissive finally tries it for the first time and discovers that it really is as good as he’s always imagined it. - It’s nice to read a story in which the sub doesn’t do everything perfectly on his first try. Not only does Hadley struggle to follow orders and remember how he should behave, but he has an all-out panic attack the first time he’s restrained. The best part about this, in my opinion, is Rawlings’s firm-but-understanding reaction to Hadley’s floundering. - Some of the lines, especially in dialogue, are dry and matter-of-fact in a way that made me smile. Case in point: at one point Rawlings says, utterly seriously, “I don’t joke about leather.” CONS: - Usually I don’t like stories that don’t have Happily Ever After endings, but in this case, the story sort of has one and I think it shouldn’t. The time frame covered is less than a week, and one of the characters makes a very abrupt confession of love right at the end that is so entirely unfounded that I actually scoffed out loud when I read it. Is one week enough time to fall for someone whom you’ve been admiring from afar for months? Perhaps. But do I believe in it if I haven’t seen any proof of that emotion in the character’s thoughts or seen more than a cursory exchange of dialogue? No. - The main characters are referred to throughout by their last names, which gives the whole story a slightly impersonal feel. - Dare often uses a descriptor to refer to a character rather than the character’s name (that is, “the dominant” or “the doctor” instead of “Rawlings”). I found it very distracting--especially when, for example, Hadley is referred to as “the constable” in the middle of a BDSM scene, when his role as a law enforcement officer isn’t exactly at the forefront. Overall comments: This is only the third work I’ve read by Kim Dare, and I liked the first two much better than this one. Dare does an excellent job with BDSM scenes--the one in-depth bedroom scene is hot--but the story here just didn’t measure up for me.

    Hadley, oh so tasty. He's a cute constable who was "kidnapped" and has fantasies of being bound and taken by force. Um, well, who doesn't have this fantasy? *blink blink* Introducing another Rawling man, who actually isn't a cop! He's a shrink. I shudder when I read about a shrink, but this one, he makes me shiver with delight. These short stories are so sugary sweet I'm almost comatose with a sugar high. Love it.

    awesome read! Kim Dare's got a flare for writing and puts you in the minds of the characters and just what they want. makes You think about the possibilites of a Dom/sub relationship - could there be something more there? give me eight more chapters and i would have been in heaven - but four still kept me going. guys, don't read this at work in your cubicle unless you plan on staying there until You can stand! :) Hot! on to the next in the series.

    This book is not my normal type of book. Wait. Let me clarify that. I don't normally read strictly m/m romance. I tend more toward threesome books with a lady thrown into the middle of the two men. What can I say? I like what I like. When I do read m/m romance I like them with a bit of the paranormal. You know, shapeshifters and their ilk. I do like Dom/sub books, so there's a definite plus there. Anyway. I ended up liking this one more than I thought I would.

I have a tendency to enjoy D/s relationships that focus on the mental side of them being together as much as the physical. This one definitely hit the spot in that regard. All in all, a lovely, naughty way to spend a few hours. For my first foray into m/m romance with no paranormal aspects, I'm very pleased. -Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal

    The main reason I read this was because I read Handcuffs and Glory Holes (Rawlings Men #2) and really liked it. I don't think this was as good, but an enjoyable read. It did seem too short, and I did a double take when I turned the page and the story was over. It easily could have been longer and been a little more fully developed. As it was, the "I love you" seemed waaaaaaaay premature and pulled me out of the story a little.

Worst nightmare land, he's to see Dr. Rawlings, a guy he's been fantasizing and lusting after for months. Except Hadley was never really in any danger from his hostage-takers.

Anxiously awaiting the next book...

    2012 Review: I love this author. This book kicks off a series of shorter stories, centred on a family of men in police-related jobs. The first one? Funny and sweet. ^_^ I am such a sucker for love and romance and happiness in whatever form makes sense to the characters. Well, I do admit I like it when that form means no one is getting injured &c. This was sweet and caring and I feel just fine.

    This was a good start to a relationship between Dr. Rawlings and Hadley, but it left me wanting a lot more. Hadley is new to realizing that he is a sub, so he is still struggling with following orders. I was a little shocked by Dr. Rawlings already telling Hadley that he loved him. (I wasn't the only one shocked...Hadley was too!!) I am interested to read the next book in the series.

    ARGH!!! I was not expecting it to END....*pout*....that's what I get for getting so caught up in the story and not watching the page count. Would really liked to have seen these two settle into their roles with one another. Glad to see this is the start of a series.

    A fun, hot, little story of a young cop discovering his submissive side in the hands of an experienced Dom. I wish it had been a little longer but I do enjoy Kim Dare's short stories, so I'm not complaining much.

    This felt like a teaser for a really promising story. I enjoyed reading it while it lastet and would have given 4 stars for what was there, but in the end it left me really disappointed. The setup is interesting, it has the right mix of angst, hurt/comfort, steam, fluff - and then it ends just when I would have expected a story to really start. Basically it was too short.

    Hadley and Dr. Rawlings. First in a fun little series of BDSM novellas (sometimes more like vignettes). This story is one of the weaker ones with less connection and emotional depth between characters, although these two do heat up the page. C-, no reread
