Dr. River McKay moved to Denver with his husband, Terrence, hoping to give their failing marriage a new start. A year later, Terrence is gone and River’s left brokenhearted. Now, he’s decided it’s time to get back in the game. A chance encounter at the hospital introduces him to Phil, a strong-willed pharmacist who isn’t impressed by River’s degree.

Phil can’t deny his attraction to River, but dating is out of the question. Phil only does one kind of relationship -- domestic servitude, where he gives the orders and his partner obeys. To his surprise, River agrees -- not because he likes the idea, but because anything’s better than being alone.

They know the arrangement won’t last. Phil’s set in his ways and incapable of showing affection outside the bedroom. River’s unused to obedience and still in love with his ex. But their time together will change them, making them question everything they thought they knew about love, control, and relationships. When the unexpected threatens to tear them apart, they’ll have to choose between the comforts of the past and a future they can only find together.

My review: 

Don't judge a book by it's previous series piece. In my case - I LOVED the first book in the series, but sadly, this wasn't as good at all. 

River and Phil were awesome characters and I loved their connection, their everyday things. 
I loved reading about the hospital things, but sometimes it was really too much. But after a while it was like they weren't working at all so i'm a bit confused here!

I wanted to read about domestic servitude so much, but this wasn't what i was hoping for. It wasn't bdsm and dark at all. It was so light and so vanilla. Something was missing from Phil's character. He wasn't DOM at all. I loved him, don't get me wrong, but I need more from a character like him. 

And that word - Teacher - lol, am I the only one who doesn't liked it? Give me Master, Sir, Daddy- anything but teacher. It wasn't hot and erotic at all. 

The erotic scenes were amazing, especially the poker nights! Awwww! River was perfect. 
I really loved the relationship between River and Phil and I loved the change in them too. Phil's change was the best and this was the only thing worth in this book. The love and light d/s between them was super hot. Loved the book but I missed something, something more about domestic servitude. 

And River at the end when he still didn't know who he wants to be with forever... that was the deepest shit in this book. If that wasn't there, it would be almost a perfect story.

But again, back to Phil, at the end he was soooo perfect and so beautiful! That was the best scene ever! When he cried.♥ 

Some scenes were over written too, and the book was really long - at times I was bored to death. But mostly loved it.
