Their biggest challenge is balancing one's vanilla with the other's kink. Joel has finally walked away from his abusive ex and is ready to meet new people. But that isn't easy for a guy who's shy, self-conscious, and struggling with his body image. Andre has wanted Joel since the first time he laid eyes on him, and finally Joel is single. But Andre is a Dom and a sadist, and Joel is unapologetically vanilla. There's no happy medium — either Andre reins in the kinky side that took him years to accept, or Joel grits his teeth and subjects himself to kinks that aren't his thing. No matter who bends, someone's going to be unhappy. They agree to walk away, but they keep circling back to each other. Though their kinks might not line up, the chemistry between them sizzles and the emotional connection keeps getting deeper. But none of that will get them anywhere if they can't find some kind of middle ground in the bedroom.
