    1. 4 stars for Ben, Gavin (Gavin the man, not the cop) & Myah.****Review completed August 18 2013When Dom George Kaiser is murdered, Detective Gavin DeGrassi doesn't know yet that he'll get more than he bargained for. Gavin is not familiar with the lifestyle and soon he must realize that he is out of his depth. They need a tutor. Enter Dr. Ben Haverson, a psychologist and well respected Dom who is specialized in counseling patients who are into the lifestyle. When Ben and Gavin meet for the fir [...]

    2. I want my very own Ben.And I'm not a fan of BDSM, not really. But lately I'm finding such good books that give a different meaning to it all. I'm getting the magic in it and the beauty of the relationship Dom/sub. I find it exhilarating and even out-earthly. So if you are one of those scared about the topic, this one is the amongst the best to start it. As a friend told me, it's BDSM 101, which is not synonymous of naive. It was HOT!

    3. ***4.75 Suspense and Submission Stars***”It takes more courage to kneel before another than to stand beside them.”Why have I waited so long to read this?! The answer to that is plain and simple….I’m an idiot!Gavin DeGrassi is a homicide detective that comes from a family of cops. He loves his job and making a difference in the world. However, he has a very unsatisfying personal life. He’s married to a cold, status-hungry wife and a family that although loving, can be rather pushy with [...]

    4. ♥♥♥ 4.5 KINKY STARS ♥♥♥Once again, this one was one of the many books that was buried under my pile of 'to read' books that kept getting pushed to the back. Well, I can't believe I didn't read this sooner because wowis book was pretty damn good. As soon as I started the book, I was pretty much hooked. I didn't know how it would all pan out, since I knew Gavin would be in a relationship with Ben at some point. The mystery aspect of it, did have me sickened and intrigued. I had a hard [...]

    5. Written March 15, 20144.3 Stars - strong and engaging - I was both stunned, terrified and charmed Book #1~ Read in October 2013 ~ A VERY late review!!There was never any review written. Now it's too late to really do this book justice, but I still want to say some words. First of all, I liked this novel a lot - and even more the subsequent second book (Safeword). ~**~**~**~**~**~A great start for a two book series. I was both frightened of nasty stuff in the crime part, but above all completely [...]

    6. Those clueless about BDSM will enjoy A.J. Rose's "Power Exchange". Detective Gavin falls for his BDSM consultant on a serial murder case, Dr. Ben. Ben's a Dom therapist and Gavin's married a woman. So you figure them apples. But if you love Law & Order:SVU, like I do, you'll also like this story. Now while I am a huge fan of the show, the first two seasons were a little hokey. And guess what? This read like a first season episode. There were two central storylines going on: Gavin's coming ou [...]

    7. THIS IS A BRILLIANTLY WELL WRITTEN BOOKBuddy read with the lovely ladies Awilk, Em, Laci Rain, Renee, The only reason for 4 STARS instead of 5 was because I felt the murder plot overtook the story too much at times. However the relationship development between dom Ben and sub Gavin more than made up for it.I loved it when Ben called Gavin 'Baby' it made my heart crush for BenThis is a BDSM book, yet there is much more depth to it. The relationship between Ben and Gavin is beautifully written and [...]

    8. 3.5 StarsI really liked this one. Up to a point.I enjoyed the MC's and their relationship development and the murder mystery thing was good too. Up to a point.I read it straight through, feeling invested in the outcome. Up to a point.I reached that point at about 75% when the murder mystery becomes well, a joke really. It's so obvious a whodunit I felt like a kid again watching a pantomime shouting and furiously pointing at the bad guy: "He's behind you, He's behind you", while the hero looks e [...]

    9. Third read, March 2016 So fucking good. I will review this time!Re-read on March 2, 2014. Will review after reading the sequel Safeword.

    10. Rating: 4* of fiveEverything Fifty Shades of Grey wasn't in terms of the BDSM lifestyle. Realistic depiction of how contracts between Dom and sub work, and how very deep a D/s bond becomes in a very short time. It's amazing what committing to eliminating bullshit and nonsense does for a relationship.The mystery part wasn't deft. Gavin DeGrassi isn't detecting particularly well, given some very very basic events he seems simply not to have noticed.I could have lived happily without chapter 13 bei [...]

    11. Detective Gavin DeGrassi is out to solve a murder case involving a Dom who was killed in his own playroom and by his own toys. When the BDSM context gets too complex for the cops, they call in Dr Ben Haverson, a therapist and self-proclaimed Dom, to assist them with his insider knowledge. However, Gavin soon develops a private interest in the BDSM culture and in Ben in particular, which makes handling the case more difficult for him than he can foresee, especially as the killer is striking again [...]

    12. "I have you where I want you," Ben said, approaching me. "I can do with you what I will. You trust me not to harm you. I take that trust to heart.I'll take what I want. You'll give me what I need. In return, I'll take on your burdens, set you free."Gavin DeGraw is a detective and comes from a family of cops. It's in his blood, it's in his bones, and he takes his job seriously. Possibly a bit too seriously, and it's put quite the strain on his marriage. When a brutal case involving the BDSM commu [...]

    13. 4 Stars! Way more than a book about BDSM! So much to love about this book and Gavin, Ben, Cole and Myah are at the top the list! Four very likeable, relatable characters that each brought something very special to the read. Gavin, so sweet, wants to please everyone, he's lost and unsure how to proceed with his personal and professional life. Ben, he exudes authority, sure and confident, yet not cocky, comfortable in his skin and wants his skin touching Ben's! Myah, a good cop and friend, she's e [...]

    14. *4,5 stars*I have read a few BDSM-themed books and depending on the author and the story line, D/s relationships can vary an awful lot, as they do in real life as well (I assume).I do have trouble with 24/7 complete power exchange relationships and extreme BDSM, but I've come to really like most other versions. Ben and Gavin I totally loved.I was admittedly fascinated by learning more about the 'lifestyle' and following Gavin as he finds out what it takes to submit. The whole philosophy about do [...]

    15. 4,5 starsLooks leftlooks right one is currently reading it?Do I really have to go first? Unf.nds!Well written, well thought out mystery-plot (a plot!), touching D/s romanceloved this book and read it almost in one go without skipping a single word.I`m no expert in police procedure and BDSM, just read about these themes in books but I think there went a huge amount of research into this book - forensics, edge play, D/s dynamics - everything in the story sounded convincing and plausibleans - I bou [...]

    17. Enlightening and fascinating book!__________________________________________Gavin a courageous and awesome men, and Ben *sigh* who wouldn’t want to submit to him!! "For the first time, I wholly understood the words power exchange. In giving up my power to him, he was, in turn, giving me the power to realize my value, that what I had to offer of myself was worth giving to someone, and I had to trust that particular someone to cherish it."The book title is exactly what this book is all about,Gav [...]

    18. Hi all, I have never written a review so please bear with me.You know how covers or titles can determine an opinion of what inside??? this one kind of made me think it was heavy BDSM, in my narrow minded view that meant scary beating, pain, and control of sub by dom. Well after reading this, not so much. This book made me understand so much more about the Dom/Sub relationship. I loved Ben, and how he explained evrything to Gavin. I loved how Gavin not only embraced being gay,(after the miserable [...]

    19. Okay - cannot pass this up - the cover alone is worth the purchase.3.5 Updated for review. I rather enjoyed this book. The slow boil between the murder case as well as Gavin's discovery of what he needed in partner as well as in a D/s relationship I felt was done well. This book went into great detail regarding the lifestyle, different relationships and different levels of play inside BDSM and really seemed to be honest and respectful. What i did not like about this book was: the ending. For suc [...]

    20. 5 stars!Power Exchange has definitly been an amazing read. I have to admit that the blurb - a young detective solving a murder in the BDSM word and slowly getting pulled deeper and deeper into it - has been a very intriguing topic. I have been looking forward to reading this book and it has been a perfect choice. The characters have been very ineresting, I enjoyed the way their relationship evolved and I wanted to read more and more about them. However, the murder has also been an important part [...]

    21. ☆☆☆Yet another re-read of this outstanding series[and seriously where is the hardship in that 😉] in preparation for PE4 which comes out next year☆☆☆** 28/7/14. Re-read with Andrea. Having such a long gap between reads only emphasized for me what a fabulous book this is, some of the lines are just delicious, and Gavin, well he's just one of my fave characters full stop. Chock full of feelz, wonderful writing and characters.** Original review dated 2013 Loved it. 5 stars and I adore [...]

    22. Wonderful book. I am kicking myself for ever putting it down (stupid,impatient hormones)Those of you whom know me are already aware that I don't like to give many details away but in actuality I'm going to be vague because I REALLY WANT TO START BOOK 2, DAMN IT!!!What an enjoyable murder mystery (is that an oxymoron?). My mind wasn't spinning due to numerous possible suspects, just enough to keep me guessing. The scenes between Gavin and Ben were phenomenal. Ben is a very meticulous lover and I [...]

    23. I really enjoyed this one because of the following:Gavin/Ben - I loved how their relationship evolved and what they became to each other.Gavin/Cole - Brothers who truly loved each other.Gavin/Myah - Great partners.So obviously, I loved Gavin LOL! I thought he was great and I will definitely read book 2!The 'mystery' part had me cracking up though as it was really easy to figure it out. Other than thato thumbs up!

    24. Power Exchange is the perfect title to this book! The power that is given by the submissive to his Dom is precious and its value is so well demonstrated in this book I'm no expert on BDSM lifestyle, but it fascinates me The subject of this book, however, is not only BDSM is about a realization It's about a man Gavin, trapped in an unhappy marriage, feeling how wrong that marriage is, because he's not himself He realizes that to be who he truly is, he must change his life and submit to his essenc [...]

    25. *****4.5 Stars****After reading a few bad books in a rowI have to say that it feels damn good giving this one 4.5 Stars.It was my first time reading A.J.Rose and I loved it. Strong and credible story line  Excellent support characters  Hot couple Erotica/BDSMI loved the way the book was written rich in detail. It was extremely engaging. I need to give this some emphasis because I am not in too much detail. It makes me bored to death. And that is why I have to take my hat off for this [...]

    26. I like mysteries. I like BDSM books and I like m/m. Put all three together and you have a book which is bound to be a win as long as the writing is good and the characters realistic. Fortunately, this book managed to combine everything beautifully and was a marvellous read.The story follows homicide detective, Gavin, who is called to investigate a horrible murder of a man connected to the BDSM community. During his investigations he meets Ben, a psychologist who has been brought in to help with [...]

    27. STUNNING and FASCINATING Gavin and Ben are adorable and hot and a perfect match for each other.I was captivated by this book from the very beginning. Two gorgeous guys, the mystery and thriller and when the power exchange began and things got really interesting and I was completely hooked. "It's an exchange of power. Believe it or not, the subs have more power than you realize. They have the power to choose whether or not they give themselves to a Dom. Once the exchange is made, the Dom takes up [...]
