Fingers traced his chin and caressed his lips. “Fucking hell, babe,” Adrian murmured.

Dom knew from experience that this wasn’t the end of the night. He didn’t expect Adrian to drop down to his knees, though, to take Dom’s face between his hands and kiss him like he was the only man in existence.

But that’s what Adrian did, and Dom moaned into him, every nerve on fire.

Adrian wiped away the wetness on Dom’s face. “I love tasting me on your tongue.”

“Fuck my face more often, then.” His words were whispered and hoarse.

A deep rumble of amusement and a pat on the cheek. “We’ve only had two nights.”

Felt like so much more. Everything with Adrian was hot and fast, and yet somehow so slow and perfect, too. Like now, when Adrian pulled him up from the floor and took him to the bed.

Adrian unclasped the cuffs from each other. “Lie down on your back. I’m going to tie you to the headboard for a little while. See what you think of that.”

Dom exhaled, a strange heat running through his body that had nothing to do with the ache of his cock. “Yeah, okay.”

Adrian took each arm and swung it up, murmuring how Dom should move, how he needed to position his body. Gentle voice, gentle touch. He was still in all his clothing, too.

“Wanna see you naked,” Dom said. Everything was heady and light again.

Adrian smiled and touched his face. “Do you?”

“Yeah. I mean, if you want? ’Cause I guess I’m not supposed to demand anything, am I?”

He couldn’t even name the emotions that flickered over Adrian’s features, but there was such a weight to them, and in his gravelly voice. “You, Dominic, can always ask me for anything you wish.”

What he wished. He wanted everything. This moment. Wednesday. Whatever happened tomorrow. He wanted the band and Domino. He wanted Adrian to make the world go away so only Dom existed. Dom and Adrian.

“I’m in way over my head.”

“Shh.” Adrian’s brow furrowed. “So am I.”

Dom closed his eyes. Oh fucking hell. He was gonna fall in love with Adrian. After two damn dates. That wasn’t safe and it wasn’t fair at all.

A touch on his arm had Dom opening his eyes again. “You’ll miss the show,” Adrian said, and pulled off his tie.

He stripped the rest of his clothing off, watching Dom the entire time. Soon that amazing body was exposed once more, in every mouthwatering detail. It was everything Dom remembered, and so much more. “You’re fucking hot.”

“Why thank you.” Adrian got his quirky, wicked grin and picked up a bundle of rope. “And as a reward, I’m going to tie you up. If it’s too much, tell me and I’ll cut you free.”

“It’s not gonna be too much.”

Adrian shook his head. “You don’t know that yet.”

But he did. Because ropes didn’t scare him. The thought of being bound only made his blood hot and his mind relax. What terrified him was the looming future, his guitar, and how much he’d have to give up to have everything he wanted.

Adrian tied his right wrist first, stretching his arm in the process, and it felt so damn good he arched his back. “Fuck, babe, you do like this, don’t you?”

Dom met Adrian’s stare. “Yeah it’s…” He huffed out a breath. “It’s like soaring.” Or being onstage. The thrill, the heat and charge, and the utter security. “I’m safe.” He relaxed into the bed. “I’m safe here.”

Adrian stroked his arms. “Makes me want to tie your legs down, too.”

Oh hell, that sent a bolt of lightning down his body. “Yeah, please.”

“Not tonight. Partly to tease you—because I love that—but mostly because I think you can hold yourself still for me.”

A different heat flowed and settled in his balls and dick. The cuffs might calm him, but a hit of Adrian’s command sent lust racing into every part. “Fuck.”

For that he got a smirk, and Adrian stroked himself a few times. “Not quite there yet. But I bet once you’re tied down and listening to me… I will be.”

“I’m listening.”

Fingers danced up his left arm, and that too was tied to the headboard. Same warm touch swept over Dom’s lips. “You’re talking, not listening.”

He couldn’t resist opening his mouth and sucking those fingers in. Adrian hissed, then grunted. “Your mouth is always trouble.”

About the Author

Anna Zabo writes contemporary and paranormal romance for all colors of the rainbow. They live and work in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, which isn’t nearly as boring as most people think.

Anna grew up in the wilds of suburban Philadelphia before returning to their ancestral homelands in Western Pennsylvania. As a child they were heartily disappointed to discover that they couldn’t grow up to be what they wanted (a boy, a cat, a dragon), so they settled on being themself whenever possible, which may be a combination of a boy, a cat, and a dragon. Or perhaps a girl, a knight, and a writer. Depends on whom you ask. They do have a penchant for colorful ties and may be hording a small collection of cufflinks.They can be easily plied with coffee.

Anna has an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University, where they fell in with a roving band of romance writers and never looked back. They also have a BA in Creative Writing from Carnegie Mellon University.

Anna uses they/them pronouns and prefers Mx. Zabo as an honorific.

Our Review

‘Dominic was hiding. He was hiding both halves of himself from each other. Here was the heart of Dominic’s terror and fear, that if one was the truth, the other was a lie,’

Counterpoint was our first book by Anna Zabo and book two in her Twisted Wishes series. Whilst we wish we’d read book one Syncopation first, we absolutely agree that Counterpoint can be read as a standalone. This story had everything; a rock star BDSM erotica with angst and high emotion thrown in. We fell in love with Anna Zabo’s writing and we will definitely be staying with these characters to hear each individual story, as they’re all fabulous. An intense, hot, sweet and current read – you’ll need freezer time if you’re that way inclined!

‘One of the great things about having a persona he could shed at will was that he didn’t have to be as cautious when he left his home, unlike the rest of the band.’

‘He could play like he wanted to as Domino. Dance and scream and say whatever the fuck came into his mind. And when they were done, when they weren’t touring, he could peel Domino off and be Dominic again. As a bonus, he’d managed to keep himself – his true self – out of the limelight.’

Dominic is a complex character who suffers from real anxiety brought on by the pressure that comes from being a famous rock star. He may come across as living a double life and if you asked him he’d say he has no idea how to reconcile them. One persona is the larger than life, Domino – lead guitarist of Twisted Wishes, clad in punk rock gear and black lipstick with an ‘I don’t give a toss’ attitude. The other is Dominic, the sweet vulnerable geek who loves books and bow ties. Who is the real Dominic? Can he be both personas in one or do they really have to be separate? We loved Dominic’s journey in finding himself and realising who he truly is. We fell hook, line and sinker for this man and actually found him to be a strong character who had little to no faith in himself. Sometimes it takes an outsider to come along in order to remove the shutters and the cloak you hide beneath.

‘Adrian was wicked and wonderful and kind and…everything Dom wanted.’

Adrian is a grafter, but is in a job that provides zero stimulation, with working conditions that prove quite intolerable. He’s at an age now where he’s looking for more out of life. Happiness and love being the more important things. Adrian is a strong character with a good heart and a passion for life. The care and attention this man shows is immeasurable and when he loves, he loves with every fibre of his being.

“He’s Adrian Doran. And I think I might fall in love with him.”

Our hearts broke, our pulse raced and we fell in love with Dominic and Adrian. Both, despite their age difference, showed such maturity and there was absolutely no unnecessary drama despite the secrets kept. We have to applaud Anna Zabo for allowing her characters to develop in such a way they felt believable and true to themselves. Falling in love with the rest of the band members as well as Adrian’s mate, Jackson ensured that we will be jumping on the Twisted Wishes journey for more!

“I think Dominic Bradley is a rock star. I think he’s also a scholar and incredibly intelligent. He’s sexy and fun and utterly unexpected.”



Twisted Wishes lead guitarist Dominic “Domino” Bradley is an animal onstage. But behind his tight leather pants and skull-crusher boots lies a different man entirely, one who needs his stage persona not only to perform, but to have the anonymity he craves. A self-imposed exile makes it impossible to get close to anyone outside the band, so he’s forced to get his sexual fix through a few hot nights with a stranger.

When computer programmer Adrian Doran meets Dominic, he’s drawn to the other man’s quiet voice and shy smile. But after a few dirty, demanding nights exploring Dominic’s need to be dominated, Adrian wants more than a casual distraction. He has no idea he’s fallen for Domino Grinder—the outlandish, larger-than-life rock god.

Dominic is reluctant to trust Adrian with his true identity. But when the truth is revealed prematurely, Dominic is forced to reevaluate both his need for Adrian and everything he believes about himself.

One-click with confidence. This title is part of the Carina Press Romance Promise: all the romance you’re looking for with an HEA/HFN. It’s a promise!

“Part of me wants to pretend I have you, but another part thinks I’ll die if you don’t tell me you love me, even if it doesn’t change anything. Even if it’s just getting to hear it one more time.”


‘It’s such a simple word – just four letters. Home. But there aren’t enough letters in the alphabet in the world to capture the meaning of it.’

“I’m afraid I’ll fall completely, head-over-heels in love with you, and that you’ll fall back. I’m afraid we’ll discover we’re the missing pieces of each other’s souls.
The words had a beat -a rhythm- like it was a song she’d already written.
