At the end of Deviations: Domination, Tobias Vincent and his submissive, Noah Dolan, had reached a new level of commitment.  Noah earned his collar and together they were learning to balance their dominant and submissive needs with a more traditional romance.  In Deviations: Discipline Tobias and Noah build on that foundation and must face challenges, both old and new.  Noah still fears the cage and the demands and desires of their romantic relationship often conflict with their D/s roles.  Trying to help Tobias' former submissive, Phantom, deal with his many issues is also no simple task.  Tobias and Noah's original D/s contract is set to expire and Is up for renegotiation.  Not to mention a family tragedy and their Paris trip.  Nothing will be easy, but Tobias and Noah might just come out of all this stronger and better than ever.

I must confess, I am a huge fan of Jodi Payne and Chris Owen's Deviations series.  After the superb Deviations:  Domination, I wondered if Payne and Owen could make magic happen yet again.  I'm delighted to say that Deviations: Discipline is a fantastic addition to the series!  If possible it's even more intense and absorbing than the previous books.  The sex is hotter, edgier and more meaningful.  Rather than stick to hard and fast roles, Tobias and Noah's

relationship is a wonderful exploration of various shades of gray.  They aren't just play-acting a scene.  There's real-life drama and a truly beautiful romance here!  Phan is a captivating character and his story adds a fascinating dimension to Tobias and Noah's lives.  I can't wait for his story.  Through it all though, Noah and Tobias are the heart of the tale.  I loved every kinky, naughty, touching and emotional minute of their journey.  I joyfully recommend it!

Deviations: Discipline is the third book in the Deviations series.  Although you could read each book as a stand-alone, I would recommend you read the entire series to get the full effect.
