Review of Silver/Steel by Belinda McBride

Title: Silver/Steel
Author: Belinda McBride
Source: NetGalley
Genre: Paranormal M/M BDSM
Length: Novel
Review: KindleRomance

When dream hunter Dylan Ryve spots a beautiful shapeshifter raising hell in a bar, he knows he wants the wild young man. But Travis Feris is more to Dylan than a few hot minutes outside in the snow; he's the assassin's ticket into the magical town of Arcada. He didn't plan to rescue the kid, but when he found the shifter being attacked, the opportunity to play hero was too good to pass up. 

Through the solitude of a long winter night, Dylan walks in Travis's fevered dreams, learning about Arcada and the pack, and showing the shifter the man he'd been so very long ago. When morning comes, both men know their lives will be forever entwined. 

From Dylan, Travis learns that he is a strong, valued member of the pack. The dreamwalker sees his own worth reflected back at him in the dark blue eyes of the wolf. Yet when Dylan has the chance to free himself from centuries of enslavement, can he betray the man he has come to love. 

Note: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable: BDSM elements, domination/submission.

Absolutely phenomenal paranormal romance! The character development was exceptional. In addition to getting to know about their lives and personalities, they spent a lot of time together slowly growing their relationship. Dylan is an ancient fae who has to satisfy a promise he made to a demon. He is very powerful and naturally dominant. Travis, the shifter, thinks he's constantly causing trouble, but in reality he's very kind and one of the most generous members of the pack. Together they make a great couple and are very supportive of each other. There was quite a bit of, but not too much, steamy sex with some light bondage and spanking. 

There was a lot of interaction with the pack, including appearances by Blacque and Bleu from the first story. The plot was very interesting, and although there were a lot of different events happening, it was easy to follow. The entire time I was reading this, I felt like I was in their world. The descriptions were detailed enough to transport me there without ever being boring or over the top. The emotional moments tugged at my heart strings, but there were never any issues between Travis and Dylan which is my favorite kind of romance. 

I highly recommend reading the first book in this series, Blacque/Bleu. It's not necessary to read it to understand this story, but it's one of my all-time favorite stories so it's definitely worth it.
