Book Blurb

Max is looking for the real BDSM deal. He complains to his friend Randy about the lack of kink in his life, so Randy gives him an address and tells him to go there before he gets too desperate. Max gives in and ventures to what he’s expecting to be a club. Instead, he finds a rough, blue-collar drinking establishment where he seems less than welcome. He’s rescued by Adam, a rough, no-nonsense top who shows him that BDSM is still alive and thriving.


Book Review

What to say about this story? I guess first of all I need to mention that this is not a romance. The blurb says that Adam 'rescues' Max and that is accurate – but I am not sure what he's rescuing him from, because what follows is pretty rough. Not that Max doesn't enjoy every second of it. But be warned: this is erotica, pure and simple, and the kind that takes place with more than one partner and some very interesting uses of a pool table!

Max is curious and desperate for some "real" BDSM action. Well, "real" is relative and we soon find out how Max defines it: rough, as many men as he can deal with, and as hot as you can imagine. He does respond well to cuddling when it's all over, but the thought foremost in his mind isn’t the comfort, it's the heat of what he did.

Adam is one of those Tops who just seem to read a sub's mind and make their fantasies come true. Lucky for Max, because walking into that bar without someone to direct proceedings, so to speak, might have overwhelmed him. Adam takes care of all of that, and gets his own toppy and exhibitionist needs taken care of while he is at it.

If you like gay erotica, if you enjoy a gangbang that has everyone involved and happy, and if you're looking for a read that's all about the action, then you might like this short story.
