Laura Kaye’s wicked hot new Club Blasphemy gay romance, ON HIS KNEES, will rock your world #BookReview #excerpt
Earlier this month, I posted about a new series that will be coming out later this year from one of my long-time favorite authors, Laura Kaye. Well, February is a double treat for all you LK fans out there, because ON HIS KNEES is here, and dayum is it sexy!
Today I’m bringing you not only my review of this scorching hot new gay BDSM romance in the Blasphemy series, but also a smokin’ excerpt that will leave you shriveled in a ball on the floor, begging for more. Oh, and there’s a pretty fab giveaway too. =)
I love the banter between the Masters at Club Blasphemy, especially Alex’s stern sadist front squared off against Kyler’s demanding, sarcastic wit. I’ve only read one other Blasphemy story so far—Kyler’s, which is the crossover from the Hard Ink series (read my review here)—and it was fan-freaking-tastic, but you don’t need to have read any of the previous books in this series (or the Hard Ink series) to enjoy On His Knees.

Jamie and Alex are perfectly suited to one another. Their kinks line up perfectly—an experienced sadist and a newbie masochist (who is new to both kink and relationships with men)—and these guys sizzle from their very first encounter. I don’t think I’ve seen pain play portrayed quite so honestly or dynamically. It’s not something I’m personally into, but these scenes are damn hot. Dirty hot. Brutal hot. Humiliatingly hot. Get the gist? *wink*
Consensual non-con is one of my guilty pleasure themes, when done right, and this story treats it beautifully. I also adore the fact that Alex isn’t Mr. Big Bad Sadist all the time. When they’re home alone, they’re a relatively normal couple. It’s such a healthy portrayal of what a lifestyle relationship can look like. Not that 24/7 relationships can’t be healthy—I just mean it’s nice to see the characters consciously make that switch and be casual outside of play time. And, of course, like pretty much every other Laura Kaye romance ever, the emotional climax of the book had me in tears. *happy sigh* I love this story. It was immediately one of my new favorite m/m romances of all time.

I LOVE this excerpt! This is one of the scenes in the book that gave me the shivers. Hope you guys enjoy it too!
Jamie was done holding back. He was done questioning. He was done feeling like he was on the outside looking in.
Now that Master Alex had demonstrated exactly what Jamie required to fully connect with another human being, he needed this to go all the way. More than that, he wanted Alex to be the one to take him there.
So he held his breath, held the Dom’s gaze, and held on to the hope that the man would agree.
“You want your first time to be non-consensual role-playing,” Master Alex finally said, his voice like it’d been scoured with sandpaper.
The tone of it gave Jamie hope. Because he was affected. Jamie wasn’t the only one who needed this, he would’ve put money on it.
Nodding, Jamie summoned the courage to say what he wanted, while the Dom was still open to hearing it. Even though, Jesus, the words on the tip of his tongue were seriously twisted. He let them fly anyway. “I want you to force me, use me, hurt me. To show me what it really means to be taken by a…a—”
“By a sadist.”
Master Alex’s dark eyes flared, and his expression went a little mean. Jamie’s cock hardened, a reaction he couldn’t hide when he knelt there naked. The Dom’s gaze swept downward and settled on his growing erection, and Jamie felt the directness of that perusal as a physical caress.
Slowly, Alex rose to his full height, and then his expression went absolutely unforgiving. “Beg.”

Getting on his knees makes him question everything…and want even more…
Another failed relationship has lawyer Jamie Fielding confronting the truth—he’ll never be satisfied with any woman until he admits what he needs…to submit and to be used—hard. When a friend invites him to the exclusive Blasphemy club, Jamie is stunned to find everything he ever wanted—in the fierce, ruthless hands of a man.
Psychiatrist Alex McGarry will play with anyone who craves his rough brand of domination, but what he really wants is to settle down. Which makes the submissive male he meets at his club a bad idea—the man might be hot as hell but he’s also new to everything Alex has to offer. Except that doesn’t keep them from coming together again and again, sating every one of their darkest desires.
Master Alex sets Jamie’s whole world on fire and makes him question everything—and that’s good. Because Alex won’t tolerate hiding what they have for long and he wants much more than just having Jamie on his knees...
