Review: On His Knees (Blasphemy, #4) by Laura Kaye

Decadent… Sensual… Forbidden…

Meet the Masters of Blasphemy…


About ON HIS KNEES (Blasphemy #5):

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...

Rating: 4 out 5 stars

On his knees is a short M/M novel (a novella) in the Blasphemy series. It follows the story of Alex and Jamie. Alex is into the lifestyle and knows what he wants, but Jamie has just begun to discover what he needs. So far he had only vanilla relationships with females. In fact, in the beginning of this book, we see him a few minutes after he had slept with his girlfriend (which wasn't something I liked), think about how unsatisfied he was. When he went to his friend's shop to get a tattoo, the friend aka Jeremy says a couple of things that lead him to Blasphemy, where he meets Alex and the rest is history. 

I loved Jamie and I only liked Alex. Alex just wasn't the man for me and I didn't always like his actions. He should have given more time to Jamie to get used to his new life. You can't expect from a man who thought his whole life that he was straight to be completely okay with all the changes and you should let him explain instead of making rushed decisions. Jamie was my baby and I loved the way he was acting. He showed his devotion to Alex and my heart broke for him. I could relate to him and I felt like if I was in his place I would have done the same things he did.

The book was mostly good, but I wanted to see the story of these characters been explored more. So far the M/M books written by Laura Kaye are on the short side and I hate that. The biggest flaw of this book was Alex who wasn't patient and was making mistakes that a person in his profession shouldn't make. His character needed more work and this is the reason I wanted a longer book and I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.
