TITLE: Noah’s Bane
AUTHOR: Wulf Francu Godgluck
SERIES: Lormount City, book 1
RELEASE DATE: September 14, 2019
Finding his very own Daddy is harder than finding Prince Charming.
Noah Lavoie isn’t anyone special, an average guy working as a veterinarian with a few kinks and fetishes. For too many years he explored the BDSM lifestyle, but consistently felt something remained missing. In a world of black and white, Noah struggles to understand where to find the gray.
A mysterious contract.
No strings attached.
Never to know the Dominant’s identity.
Noah clings onto his only hope, a man he can call Daddy.
Cold, ruthless, charismatic. Bane Rozek believes himself impenetrable. He built his empire, fabricated from lies, blackmail, and extortion. Dark secrets he holds in his palm could cripple the most powerful of people and organizations. It’s all a lie, a simple illusion to hide his truth.
He did it all, built his fortress and claimed his power and sovereignty, for her. But Bane knows Death’s chaste kiss intimately. What Bane wants is a connection.
This time on his terms…
An innocent boy offering the purest submission.
A contract holding them both at a distance.
A boy that tugs fiercely at Bane’s dark heart.
If only Bane could believe himself worthy to be the Daddy Noah proclaims to love.
Noah’s Bane is the first book in the Lormount City series by Wulf Francu Godgluck. I admit to being captivated by the book cover, and then I knew I had to read it when I read the blurb. I love reading BDSM books. I especially love reading about Daddy Doms and their boys or Daddies and their littles. So I was excited to see how it would work with only getting to see your Daddy Dom on such a restricted basis. And the author totally pulled it off. I got sucked into Noah’s world and got to live his life with him. I got to experience the joy he felt when he was with his Daddy and the heartbreak and sorrow when he realized that he had done the one thing that was his Daddy’s hard-limit and grounds for cancellation of the contract. I was a hot mess when Noah stopped seeing his Daddy. And I loved how his Daddy, Bane, had to re-evaluate what he wanted to do next. Does he let his boy go because he doesn’t want him to know who he is and possibly get rejected because of who he is or does he take a chance and go after him and put it all out there and hope that he will accept him and who he is? I was holding my breath to find out what would happen next. I will definitely be reading this book again.
Noah is an average guy that works as a veterinarian and has a few kinks and fetishes. He’s explored the BDSM lifestyle for several years, and although he’s had some great scenes with some wonderful Doms, he’s felt that something is missing. As he walks through the club, he’s jealous of the closeness and love that he sees between the Daddy Doms and their boys. It’s what he knows that he is missing by not having a Daddy Dom of his own, but all of the Daddies in his area are taken and happy in their relationships. So when the owner of the club comes to him with a contract from a Daddy Dom that wants to stay anonymous, Noah is willing to take a chance to get what he’s been looking for. The terms of the contract: no strings attached, never to know the Dominant’s identity, always be on time. What could possibly go wrong? I was so happy when Noah finally got his Daddy. Noah is such a loveable character, and I loved getting to see him be cherished.
Bane Rozek is cold, ruthless, and charismatic. He’s built his empire, fabricated from lies, blackmail, and extortion, and Bane believes himself impenetrable. The dark secrets he holds in his palm could cripple the most powerful of people and organizations, but it’s all a lie, a simple illusion to hide his truth. He did it all, built his fortress and claimed his power and sovereignty, for her. But Bane knows Death’s chaste kiss intimately. And what Bane really wants is a connection based on who he is on the inside, not based on the empire he has made. He wants it on his terms. Some of his terms are that the boy will be blindfolded at all times, no attachments are to be formed, and must always be on time. He doesn’t expect to fall for the innocent boy offering the purest submission or have him tug so fiercely at Bane’s dark heart. If only Bane could believe himself worthy of being the Daddy Noah proclaims to love. I liked Bane. He’s able to have any submissive he wants, but he knows that they are only there because of how powerful he is, and he can’t believe anything they say. So he’s lonely and comes up with a way to have what he wants. A contract to keep him anonymous and a boy to cherish that doesn’t know who he is so he can trust the emotions that the boy shows.
I really enjoyed reading this book, and if you like reading books about a Daddy Dom and his boy, then you should give this book a try.
