He tried to be what they wanted.
He tried to deny it.
He tried to be a good Catholic boy…but it’s become too much.
He craves pain, submission.
He’s denied himself far too long, and it’s eating him alive.
Charles thrives off the exchange of power. He knows the world revolves around control. It’s given and taken like currency, in business and in pleasure. He won’t get attached, though, or so he tells himself, until James turns his world upside down. He’s defiant and snarky, but Charles can taste the submission on him.
Charles holds the key to his salvation but James has to Say Yes.

It's been a while since I've picked up a M/M romance, but the blurb for this one leaped out at me, and I'm so glad it did. When James loses his father, his mother cuts him off, forcing him to take a job to make it through college. James meets Charles when Charles comes in to his shop for a tie. The instant attraction between these two is obvious, but James fights it, having been convinced by his mother that being gay is an unforgivable transgression.
His reluctance doesn't stop Charles from pursuing him. The much younger James turns Charles on like no one has in a long time, and he wants him as his own. He slowly wears down James' defenses, leading to an intense physical relationship between the two. But James isn't so sure he's ready for what Charles wants, not if it means coming out to his mother. He has a choice to make, and Charles can only hope he makes the right one.
Say Yes is hot, intense, and a bit different than what I usually read (specifically the BDSM angle). It doesn't necessarily follow the standard romance formula, and that's a good thing. I love Charles and James together, and enjoyed this book quite a lot. My only issues with the book were minor grammar mistakes and how monotonous reading their names over and over became. I'd have loved to learn more about Charles as well... he's still a bit of a mystery come the end of the book. That said, I really enjoyed Say Yes and give it 4.5 stars.

When not staying up all night writing, J.R Gray can be found basking in the warm glow of the Miami sun, or at the gym where it's half assumed Gray is a permanent resident. A dominant, pilot, and sword fighting enthusiast, Gray finds it hard to be in the passenger seat of any car. Gray frequently interrupts real life, including normal sleep patterns, to jot down nonsense. The bane of Gray's existence are commas, and even though it's been fully acknowledged they are necessary, they continue to baffle and bewilder.
If Gray wasn't writing…well, that's not possible. The build up of untold stories would haunt Gray into an early grave or possibly a mental institution where the tales would end up on the walls in crayon and finger paint.
