This novella was a really nice change of pace in the Hammer series. Although I'm a huge Hammer fan, this was a nice read and little different story. The story focuses a lot on the friendship and then relationship between Bellamy and Kerry. They take a slower road to each other which is refreshing given Kerry's previous experience. This one is a little shorter than other Hammer books and the BDSM is pretty light because the relationship has to build. I really liked this one. Another good read from Sean Michael.
