Book Description

In this sequel to Deviations: Submission, Dom Tobias and Sub Noah are back, learning more about each other and their relationship, testing the boundaries of what they can and cannot handle, both together and apart. Tobias works at becoming more comfortable and finding his balance as a full-time Master again. Meanwhile, his work brings out the true submissive in Noah, who faces some of his greatest fears, and his greatest secrets, confessing to Noah about a terrible time in his past. He's not the only one who has a rough time. Tobias breaks down and shows Noah he's not all dominance, too, which sends shockwaves through their romance, leaving them to wonder if they can keep it together. With a deep exploration of the BDSM scene, secondary characters who shine, and a romance that has the reader rooting for these men from the start, Deviations: Domination is one book you can't miss.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book again 17 Oct. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved books 1 to 3 in this series. Out of all the BDSM novels I've read, this series had the most strict D/S relationship. Tobias takes on Noah as a sub after seeing Noah needs something, he's adrift and needs grounding and issues dealt with. Tobias is a sucker for a sub in need and something about Noah entrances him. Noah is not a sweet yes sir sub all the time. During the day he's a police officer and he has to work to weigh up his responsible professional life against his need to give up control in his private life.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the start of their relationship and all the details of Noah's training. Tobias is not a know it all dom and goes to his friend Bradford when he needs to who then uses his dom nature to help Tobias.
It's not all cut and dry D/S split between Noah and Tobias and that does not detract from the power exchange you can feel. Tobias is strong enough to admit that sometimes he needs to swap.
The walking to heel training was painful, hands over nipples to protect myself while reading that, I was in awe of Noah's courage jumping in a contract with the infamous Tobias, and watching him flourish was beautiful.
The pride Tobias felt when Noah achieved a task or overcame an obstacle was fantastic, you really understand what he as a dom gets out of training a sub and the descriptions of Noah's feelings explains what he gets out of it.
They are a great fun couple and their rough and tumble and often funny role playing games were hot, sexy and great to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost as good as the first book 15 Oct. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Tobias and Noah continue their relationship of Dom and sub, and are becoming closer and closer. Tobias is concerned he's not being the strict Dom Noah needs, which is bad for both of them and damaging to their relationship - even though (to me anyway, happily) it's obvious they're falling in love. He seeks the help of his friend, Bradford, the owner of the exclusive BDSM club in which Tobias and Noah met.

Bradford points Tobias in the right direction, but he's having his own problems: Phan (Phantom), Tobias's ex-sub and friend, is getting out of control, despite Bradford's best attempts to help him fulfil his needs. He'll need Tobias' help to save Phan.

There's a lot going on, relationships are changing and developing: Tobias and Noah are making progress, until Tobias has a moment of weakness which he has difficulty dealing with. It affects their whole relationship, and they discuss it, but frustratingly, one point Noah could have made, which he didn't, was that Tobias, as his Dom, expects 100% trust and honesty from Noah, but doesn't seem to feel obliged to give the same back. They do discuss trust, but only briefly - perhaps it's the nature of a Dom/sub relationship that Noah actually couldn't point that out as it would have sounded critical, but I don't know.

The end of the book became a bit too tame and easy - I can't say exactly as it would spoil the end, but suddenly everything became smooth and two dimensional. A scene at the club, a party at the end, Phan is, apparently, suddenly fine. However, the sex scenes were still extremely hot.

It still gets 5 stars, though. I really enjoyed the story, I loved the characters, the conversations were believable and it's well written. I couldn't put it down, have downloaded the next book in the series, and am looking forward to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Sequel 10 Jan. 2007
By Jem - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the sequel to Deviations: Submission. "Submission" left the reader as the two characters, Tobias and Noah, began to move beyond simple dominant and submissive--falling in love. That book explored the BDSM world with Noah, the submissive, as the focus. "Domination" switches the focus to Tobias. These two are developing a relationship, and they have issues to overcome just as any other couple does.

This series is excellent; well-written, fast paced, with fully realized characters (both supporting and main). Another book featuring some of the supporting cast as main characters would be more than welcome. I understand the third book in the series will be coming out April 07 and the fourth in Fall 07. Yeah!

I never expected a BDSM-themed book to have such a powerful love story, but there it is. Read these two books--now.

5.0 out of 5 stars More romantic and less disturbing than the first book 25 Jun. 2009
By Charly T. Anchor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Warning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS.

Rating: 9/10

PROS:
- The serious, heavy BDSM actions continue in this volume, but I didn't find them as disturbing/disquieting. (Maybe I'm just used to the ways in which Noah submits to Tobias after reading the first book.) There's one scene in which Noah goes very deep into his headspace and Tobias has to coax him out of it that I found fascinating.
- The relationship has evolved so that it's no longer 100% D/s. There are some graphic D/s scenes, but far fewer than in Book 1. Other reviewers have said that they don't like how the later books in this series have fewer BDSM scenes and more vanilla sex, but I enjoyed the vanilla sex scenes in this book just as much as the kinkier ones. I see them as proof that Tobias and Noah's relationship is BASED ON domination and submission but isn't entirely ABOUT those roles. And the idea that occasionally the two can make love while looking into each other's eyes is romantic and wonderful and...sigh.
- Hot sex scenes involving various kinks. There are some sweet, passionate vanilla scenes, some sweaty, thrilling BDSM scenes (one particularly sexy one involving voyeurism to an extreme degree), and even a ménage scene that gave me a bit of a hot flash.
- I love how honest the characters are with each other and how much focus there is on conversation. Owen and Payne must either have experienced the lifestyle personally or have spoken in-depth with both Doms and subs, because the psychological needs and desires of both characters in these books are examined in detail.
- The character of Phan makes me smile. He's a wonderful friend to Tobias--and becoming one to Noah as well. (see cons below also)

CONS:
- Phan makes me want to cry too. He's not just a friend to Tobias; I get the feeling that he's still very much in love with his old master--and not just in the "we love each other but we aren't IN love" way. I think he's IN love with Tobias but is just so messed up that he can't be right for Tobias anymore nor can he move on and fall in love with anyone else. Maybe Noah and Tobias could let him be a part of their relationship...threeways work sometimes, right?
- There are two momentous, unrelated scenes at the end of the book that have been hinted at all through the story, and both of them feel rushed or a bit smoothed over. I was expecting something really explosive from at least one of them, and each one seemed to be over rather quickly.

Overall comments: I really, really enjoyed this book because of the characters--all of them. Even the small, secondary characters make an impact. It's got some BDSM elements that will make squeamish people squirm a bit, but if you made it through the first volume in the series, this one's mostly a piece of cake. And if you're interested in the characters' relationships (rather than just the kinky sex scenes), I think you'll like this one better than the first.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delicious and fun! 6 Jan. 2009
By Valorie T. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Boy was it good to be back reading about Tobias and Noah. I have to say, since the last book, I missed them. I actually craved to read this second book of the Deviations series because I HAD to know what happens with them. It didn't disappoint. There was a lot of hot action, a lot of hot scenes, and a lot of romance. This book was definitely more romantic than the first, and emotional in a different way. In this second book, Tobias and Noah have to find balance between having a regular romantic relationship and having a relationship based on the exchange of power. In this one, Tobias examines his weaknesses as Noah comes to terms with his. Their dynamic and struggles show that not even the best Dom in the world is infallible; no matter how strong we are, we break down, we screw up. We're not perfect. I can't wait to read number 3.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great M/M Read! 16 Nov. 2013

Book #2 in the Deviations series - 4.5 Again with the abrupt ending

*sigh* So in love with Noah & Tobias

The beginning sees Tobias knowing that he's not challenging Noah enough in his submission. So he has to work on defining the line between lover & D/s to that both their needs can be met in order to keep their relationship from blowing up like the one with Phan.

There's a small speed bump when Tobias's reveals his vulnerability to Noah then tries to push it aside & goes all uber Dom on him during a scene. Noah is insightful enough to realize what's going on & stops the scene so they can talk about & move past it.

A smoking hot scene to fulfill one of Noah's fantasies in the parking garage at a club. And another very smoking hot scene at Bradford's club with Tobias, Noah, & Phan.

Bradford & Tobias stage an intervention for Phan & he finally breaks.
5.0 out of 5 stars Book Review by Caroline 5 Dec. 2014

5 of 5 Stars

For original review see The Prism Book Alliance Blog online

This book pretty much picks up straight away from Submission as we continue on our journey with Tobias and Noah.

There is a heartfelt scene at the farm on Christmas Eve when Tobias is brooding over the losses he has felt in life. His mood is dark and has worsened through the day and the evening finds him alone and drinking. Noah arrives earlier than planned and surprises him, then offers him comfort and support throughout the night.

This marks a new and untried area of their relationship and Tobias is left feeling raw, he feels weak in the eyes of his sub, and that he has not lived up to his own high expectations of himself. Noah’s feelings from the night are markedly different. He feels as though another aspect of their relationship has opened up, one that has given them both a deeper understanding of each other and brought them closer together.

The problem with Tobias feeling weak is that he then tries to over compensate in his perceived role as a Dom and a scene that should have been pretty straightforward goes to hell. Tobias is so far in his own head he misunderstands Noah and is sent into a panic that another sub is leaving him. Another conversation in the safe room brings a little more understanding but both men are left shaken.

That misunderstanding works in mysterious ways and something seems to click for them. In the following weeks Noah finds his head space more easily, sinking further into his submission and things run more smoothly for the pair.

There is a lot to look forward to. Bradford is holding his annual New Year’s Eve Party at the club and Phantom will join Noah and Tobias for some fun. Secretly Tobias has been organising a secret ceremony for Noah to make things more permanent and the time has come to help Phantom get past his demons.

…and another abrupt ending…..
