Ash has the world at his feet—everyone says so. Then why does he feel like something is missing?
Ash’s indie makeup brand is taking the industry by storm. He loves twisting gender norms on their head and making everyone feel gorgeous. If only he felt that way about himself. He keeps his scars hidden and his heart locked tight.
Steve loves his job teaching mathematics at the local college, his turtle Tullah, and his friends. But something—no someone is missing. Someone to take care of, to love, to walk through life with. His last boyfriend saw his daddy side as smothering, and now Steve treads lightly when it comes to love.
One night at Collared, two mixed-up orders and three minutes in the dark bring the two men’s worlds into collision and leave both wondering if maybe, just maybe, they found the man they were looking for.
Contours and Cuddles is an MM romance featuring a rising star in the beauty world whose burn-damaged skin isn’t the only scar he keeps hidden away, a daddy without a boy, makeup fun, ABDL, two men learning that what they want and what they need aren’t necessarily the same things, true love, and a guaranteed happy ever after. Contours and Cuddles is book four in the popular Collared Ever After MM romance series, each book focusing on a new couple who finds their Kinkily Ever After at Club Collared while keeping in touch with old friends.
I really enjoyed the dynamic of Contours and Cuddles - the fact that both Daddy and Boy were strong, successful people and there is just a hint of age play exploration, focusing more on the caring and accepting nature of the relationship, which gives me all the feels.
This book is well paced, sweet and still incorporates some incredibly sexy scenes as well. It can be read standalone, however both main characters appear in previous Collared Ever After books.
Red's Book Reads Review:
Another great instalment in the series - although it can be read as a stand-alone book. This is a cute, low-angst daddy/boy story with age play This is a really sweet book and I loved how the two got together and how Steve helped Ash overcome his fears about his appearance. It was also nice that Ash wasn’t the stereotypical character and had his own issues to overcome. I thought the scarring was dealt with really well too. Overall I really enjoyed this one.
