Daniel Whitlock is terrified of going to sleep. And rightly so; he sleepwalks, with no awareness or memory of his actions. Including burning down Kenny Cooper's house - with Kenny inside it - after Kenny brutally beat him for being gay. Back in the tiny town of Logan after serving his prison sentence, Daniel isolates himself in a cabin in the woods and chains himself to his bed at night.
Like the rest of Logan, local cop Joe Belman doesn't believe Daniel's absurd defense. But when Bel saves Daniel from a retaliatory fire, he discovers that Daniel might not be what everyone thinks: killer, liar, tweaker, freak. Bel agrees to control Daniel at night - for the sake of the other townsfolk. Daniel's fascinating, but Bel's not going there.
Yet as he's drawn further into Daniel's dark world, Bel finds that he likes being in charge. And submitting to Bel gives Daniel the only peace he's ever known. But Daniel's demons won't leave him alone, and he'll need Bel's help to slay them once and for all - assuming Bel is willing to risk everything to stand by him.

I don't even have much to say. The story falls kind of flat. For my liking, the relationship between Bell and Daniel developed too quickly, or rather not believably. I was waiting and hoping for something to tug on my emotions but despite the authors' efforts, it just didn't come through.

I'm sure others have different experiences with the story. There's definitely a lot of angst in it, and Bell tries to give as much comfort to Daniel as he can.

Part of what bothers me is how BDSM is displayed in this story. Neither of the protagonists really knows what they're doing, all the while refering to it as "kinky shit" etc. It just casts a bad light on BDSM in general and that makes me really uncomfortable. While it's clear that neither of them really knows what they're doing, and I feel like neither did the authors. If they turn out to be well renowned genre authors for BDSM, then ... well. They really should know better than to leave the reader/listener with the impression that BDSM is "kinky shit" that people use to give themselves undeserved and/or too harsh punishments while shirking responsibilities. Hence only 2 stars for the story. The reader, Greg Trembley, did an excellent job, so he deserves the 4 stars. The fact that I don't enjoy the drawl of Bell, or the whiney quality to Daniel's voice isn't his fault.
