Following his heart, Paulo took a path that could only ever lead to submission. With his own unrequited feelings, can Kaden convince Paulo there is someone else to love him: Kaden?
Paulo follows his heart to England to work with the chef he’s never forgotten, only to find his secret dreams shattered into a million pieces. Lost and hurting, he lashes out, resulting in some tough choices.
Kaden’s focus is creating magic in the kitchen, while hiding his desires. He’d already given up on finding a man who would surrender fully to him, until Paulo transfers from one of the other restaurants. Suddenly the universe presents him with everything he dreams of. Only problem is, Paulo is in love with someone else. Will working in close proximity change that?
Made to Submit is a standalone, sexy MM romance, where surrendering is everything one man craves and the other needs, giving true meaning of two halves that fit perfectly.
5 out of 5 (exceptional)
MADE TO SUBMIT is the third book in the La Trattoria Di Amore series. Although characters from previous books are mentioned, you don't need to have read them, to get this the fullest enjoyment out of this one.
We start off with Paolo at fifteen. He has a crush on one of the chefs working with his dad, which is one of the things that gives him a clue he's gay. Overhearing a conversation between his crush and someone else talking about BDSM makes him curious enough to look into it. Fast forward a few years, and he's working with his crush... who has no idea who he is. Not only that, but he's now married. Paolo is heartbroken, sure that he is in love with Carl. Enter Kaden. He is physically attracted to Paolo, but is very wary considering he knows about the crush. And then the story really takes off!
I can't tell you just how much I loved this story (although I'll obviously try!). Paolo and Kaden are so perfect for each other. What one needs, the other provides, without even really thinking about it but just doing it. Due to his past, Kaden needs the control. Paolo is desperate to have control taken away from him, in every aspect of his life. These two really made my heart happy.
I'm going to be honest here and say that Carl, who is in book two which I haven't read, doesn't really come across that well. Bless him, I know he's busy with his own life, but is he that wrapped up that he didn't even take a double-glance when Paolo started working there? How many Italians with the first name of Paolo does he know? I'm with Kaden all the way.
This was a brilliant story, with a fantastic supporting cast. The only question I have is what is the title of Lenny and Nathan's book? I need to read that one too!!! The pacing was perfect, the characters wonderful, and the overall story kept my attention from the very beginning.
Absolutely recommended by me!

Where does one start with about what I do?
I’m a writer, but I’m sure you guessed that by now if you’re reading this, hey? What you might not know is I’m a little quirky, live in my pj’s most of the time and have cake Saturdays with my sisters every week. I dedicate a little of my time to taking care of my grandbabies and on the dedicated writing days I like to write an eclectic mix of romance, suspense and paranormal fantasy. In the main I’ve written gay romance but I’m branching out under another the pen name in the future, so watch this space.
I’ve a passion for books like you would not believe and it led me down this path and now I’ve over 29 books released and heading towards releasing a whole lot more. The way my head is I never know where I’ll be headed next. I hope you’ll find a little joy in my words and follow me to see where the journey takes me and you.
If you’re interested at some point in 2021 I’ll be writing under the name JP Paton which will be F/M crime and Fantasy two of my favourite things. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled. 🙂
