College professor Charles is surprised when a student in his just-for-fun night class, Gray, declares his attraction after the class is over.  He is attracted to Gray as well, but he’s been burned in the past.  He’s also hiding a big secret.  Persistent Gray refuses to give up on Charles, however.  Will Gray still want Charles when the secret comes out?

Drawing Closer is an entertaining BDSM tale.  I liked reserved, stubborn British Professor Charles, and happy, artistic Gray was a great match for him.  Their relationship initially progressed slowly, primarily due to Charles’ reluctance.  Gray hadn’t ever experienced the BDSM scene before, and I really enjoyed the way he grew into it without giving up his individuality outside of the bedroom.  The love scenes are very well done.  There are interesting subplots involving Gray’s friend Carl and Charles’s friend Drew, as well as plenty of internal conflict.  Jane Davitt did a good job of balancing the different aspects of the book so that nothing weighed too heavily on the plot, keeping it fast-moving and engaging.  I’ve read Jane Davitt’s work before, when she was writing with Alexa Snow, and enjoyed it very much.  This proves that her solo work, while different in theme and writing style, is just as entertaining!
