Bent - Sean Michael I got this book as a free e-book of the day on I thought I would try it out. I will say that the sex scenes are pretty hot and the BDSM is not rough as I thought it might be. This is a total power exchange relationship. Marcus is always dominant and controlling over Jim. I know that this works well for some people, but it just did not work for me. It made Jim seem really weak to me. Marcus forces Jim to get tattoos and piercing, which Jim eventually learns to love. But it seems to me that Jim learns to let Marcus tell him what he likes and dislikes and how he should feel. I just like to see characters who have a stronger personality and do not need someone else to do all their thinking for them 100% of the time.
