I particularly love a great story where the mind is made to imagine all the possibilities it is teased with.
I especially love a beautifully written story where there is no need to read the angst of drama within a beautifully developing romance that is not, and most especially one that is truly sweet and calm. This is Stealing Serenity.
Serenity is one of the world's most expensive and sought after piece of photographic art. Sold at an auction, bought anonymously, it is a temptation that beckons. And beckon it did to Daniel. He is a master thief and getting his hands on this piece of art would mean a whole lot of money and a whole lot of risk.
Kearin takes one look at Daniel and does something unexpected: he hires him to be one of his auction house's curators. He did this with a secret intention no one inkling of. All Daniel knew was that he was in and closer to his prize. As for Kearin, he knew he had what he wanted. The final piece to his secret creation.
Now all Daniel had to do was strike a pose and be bound.
The unexpectedness of feeling serene while bound in artfully knotted rope steals Daniel's breath away. And Kearin's heart.
For those who are looking for an out and out BDSM story, or a superlicious erotic man on man action, go the other way! This is not the book.
For those of you who are looking for a read that captures the imagination and titilliates the creative mind, this is the right read.
Tami Veldura surprised me. What I read was one of the most erotic teasers I have ever encountered. What grabbed my attention was not so much the lack of erotica as the insinuations of it. That ending was a huge upset and an even bigger tease.
And I. Just. Loved. It!
In the back of my mind throughout this entire story was “how could a photograph be worth so much money?” But then the mystery takes over, and Daniel with his thieving skills, takes front and center. He is a master thief. He is basically on a big job, undercover so to speak, working for Kearin’s company as a lowely assistant, all in the guise of obtaining information as to the whereabouts of the overpriced “Serenity” photograph so that he may steal it.
What he didn’t count on was his interest in and attraction to the mysterious Kierin. Kierin is a photographer. He is working on a personal project of which he enlists Daniel’s help. He takes erotic photographs of bound, aroused men but hasn’t found the perfect speciman for the final shots. Daniel is intrigued and agrees to be Kierin’s model for the final pieces of the project.
There is a lot of detail given to Daniel’s thieving and surveillance, but I found the bondage photography sessions stole the show. They are very well done, and you can just about feel the knots and ropes tightening as Daniel gives in and allows himself to submit. Unfortunately, Kierin remains extremely standoffish and professional through most of it. Aside from a few orders and talk of safewords, that is pretty much the extent of the BDSM aspect of this story.
This was a quick, easy read that flowed along nicely. I wish there had been a bit more to the relationship, as I never really felt these guys connected on any level other than their physical attraction with the D/S. However, the ending, while it did confuse me a little bit, it wraps things up but leaves a door open for a possible sequel. I’d definitely be interested in reading more about these guys now that Serenity is out of the way.
So yes, I liked the shooting scenes. I liked the pace of the story and how the tension between the two main characters builds and simmer, like the rythm of Kearin binding Daniel and how their arousal grows during a scene.
I also felt that the choice of the POV was interesting, allowing us the jump into the story with Daniel.
But despite this, i have a few reserves. It took me some time to get into the story and I didn't really liked being told some pieces of introductory information when the author could have shown it to us.
Also, I needed quite some willing suspension of disbelief at some points in the story that almost got me out of it. I sometime felt that the heist story was a bit rushed because of the romance part, and vice versa, when I'm pretty sure the author could have made a much better work of those two aspects of the story, seing how some parts of it gripped me.
This book had the beginnings of a relationship of a photographer/auction house owner, Kearin, and a masterthief masquerading as a photograph curator, Daniel. Kearin in his private life like to photograph male subjects in bondage situation and is also a Dom. Daniel to his surprise is a submissive and gets off on being tied up. while this book is erotic it is not sexual in that their is no intercourse or oral action going on. Nevertheless it arouses a person and their is beauty in it. Daniel is their to steal a photograph called Serenity which is worth approximately $4 million dollars. I think most people can read this, those with emotional issues related to BDSM OR bondage shouild avoid it but otherwise it is a good entry to reading about BDSM.
Daniel, a thief, obtains a job working for Kearin, the owner of the auction house that sold the photograph he wants to steal.
Along the way, he discovers that Kearin is taking a series of photographs involving bondage and is asked to model for some of them. Daniel is also faling for Kearin but he never sleeps with his models.
Eventually, Daniel discovers where the photograph is he wants to steal and Kearin is asked by the owner to do a photo shoot at his home.
This book ends with Daniel stealing the photograph but leaving it for Kearin, who then asks him to spend the night.
This book is short, its under 100 pages and I think it could definitely be expanded or have a sequel written for it.(less)
