Pony by @SJDPeterson # REVIEW

Saddle up and RIDE!

Pony, SJD Peterson, Dreamspinner Press
Guards of Folsom #3
Grant Maxwell, aka Max, wakes to find his coffeepot has died in the night. Not one who can start his day without his favorite brew, he heads to the local coffee shop. Max finds something even more appealing than caffeine in the form of a twenty-six-year-old hottie Aiden James. For the first time in his life, well-established, confident and respected Dom Max finds himself sputtering and unsure in the face of Aiden’s charms.

Aiden lives with three roommates, works a dead-end job, and isn’t sure where his life is heading, that is, until he meets Max. Max introduces him to a foreign yet intriguing lifestyle, and they soon discover they have something more than mutual attraction in common.

A shared kink is one thing, but Aiden’s past vanilla sexual experiences as well as his fear of losing himself in Max may keep Aiden from experiencing his fantasy. Max has an obstacle of his own to overcome. He must somehow figure out how to help Aiden explore his submissive side when, for the first time in his life, he’s head over heels in love.

The third book in the Guards of Folsom series touched on a kink that I don't have a lot of knowledge about. Pony play is a fetish that I have not read about in very many books and I was intrigued to learn more.

A happy accident brought Max and Aiden together, who knew a broken coffee pot could change the course of your life.

Max is comfortable in his life. He plays with the subs at the club but isn't looking for a 24/7 relationship. He seems settled but not necessarily happy, he has a routine that has become boring.When Aiden professes an interest in kink Max is happy to introduce him to all the life has to offer, on a temporary basis.

Aiden grew up on a farm but always knew he wanted to live in a city. He wanted the hustle and excitement the city had to offer but has found it to be a bit overwhelming.  When we first meet Aiden he doesn't seem to have any real direction in his life and comes across as younger than his age would suggest. He has friends, but even those relationships seem superficial.

This book dealt more with the psychology behind submitting to someone but still retaining you identity. Aiden's fear of losing himself had a very real feel to it. How do you give up so much control and still be you? It also deals with changing aspects of relationships. The way things start is not how it has to stay, but can you change the dynamic of a relationship once it has been established? Especially with one that is as set in rules as a D/s.

I enjoyed this addition to the series and thought it went in ways that I didn't quite expect. I can't wait to see which kink is up next!
