J. Roman's A Gentleman's Agreement is one of the most romantic, historical, M/M books I've read in a long time! I loved the premise of a man's brother hatching a plan to set him up with one of his brother's best friends--from the grave! The holiday atmosphere is initially very somber since Thomas' former lover (who married his sister!) and he have to spend it together after the death of his brother, Edmund. Edmund's plan to have his friend Henry court his brother, though, and the courtship is actually that--heated glances, stolen kisses, holding hands in the winter weather...They don't rush into their physical relationship, and they truly get to know one another. I love the unexpected plot twist at the end as well as the personality of Henry's sister. I highly recommend this sweet holiday romance!

This is about the third time I have read this book! It is one of my favorites now. I really enjoyed the way the emotional change comes across in this book, even with the abusive "Dom", Scott, near the end. Even Scott realizes that what he is doing and who he is trying to be isn't truly safe or protective of someone else in his care. (I really hoped he would find someone to help him on his journey as well.) I absolutely loved the way the domestic discipline worked for Keaton and Aiden, and that by the end of the book Aiden was able to bring additional pleasure to Keaton through BDSM play that they otherwise hadn't been trying--while still keeping the two mindsets separate. I would recommend this book to someone who is interested in knowing more about domestic discipline since both it and the BDSM world were intertwined in the plot.
