If It Fornicates (Market Garden #4) by L.A. Witt, Aleksandr Voinov

I recently received a copy of If It Fornicates from Riptide Publishing for review through NetGalley.  This book has Dominant and Submissive, BDSM, and adult themes.  Here is the cover and Goodreads blurb:

If it flies, drives, or fornicates, it’s cheaper to rent it.

Nick is a top earner in the Market Garden, where rentboys fulfill their high-rolling clients’ every sexual fantasy. As a Dom and a sadist, he sets his own price and is experienced enough not to let any client get out of hand. He’s damn good at his job, and it’s easy money.

Or at least it used to be. But now he has a boyfriend. Spencer is a former client, a closeted corporate lawyer, and so beautifully submissive he’s perfect for Nick. He doesn’t even mind how Nick earns a living. He just wants to take care of Nick—something Nick isn’t quite sure how to handle.

In fact, Nick’s clearly off his game these days. Sure, he’s tired from his shift work and his studies, but mainly he’s bored by his clients and distracted by thoughts of Spencer—dangerous for everyone when he’s wielding a whip. Now Nick has to make a choice: give up his independence, or walk away from the only man he’s ever loved.
It was nice to see Nick lose some of his swagger when he realized that the life he had thought was perfect just wasn't anymore.  He was quickly leaving his comfort zone by realizing that his needs had changed.  He and Spencer talk out this change- which is great- and they come up with a solution to move forward.  I love how easily they work together.  It is really awesome to see.  I think, in a way, Nick is maturing and realizing that sex, money and power aren't all there is to a good life.   Love is important.  I just wish that there could have been even more development of their relationship.

You can click here to find this series on Goodreads.  L. A. Witt can be found on her website and Aleksandr Voinov can be found on his.  Both have other series' and more information available on their respective website.  This book earns 3 Fairies for a positive look at a D/S relationship but I still would have liked more development of the emotional part of their relationship.
