Book Blurb

Jamie was the captain of his high school's football team. Neil was the weird goth transfer student. And yet, they fell in love and have been together ever since. Three years later, their relationship is strong as ever, but living together made the couple's love life somewhat predictable.

Today, it's Neil's birthday and Jamie's determined to make it unforgettable. And what could make his boyfriend happier than an unexpected sexual role play? Probably only a Bull in the closet.

WARNING: Contains graphic m/m sex scenes, failed role play and a chocolate orgasm.


Book Review


What a fun little story! I guess most of us have wanted to surprise loved ones for a special occasion, and found that those surprises aren't always as successful or gladly received as we imagined. Jamie has a definite case of "surprise gone wrong" – and not just one, but several in a row. Neil's reactions were priceless, and the one thing that made this a comedy of errors (rather than a tragedy of things gone wrong) was the love between the two men. It put everything into perspective, and let even the less successful elements of Jamie's surprises appear in a favorable light. Love can be just magical like that.

Jamie is a great guy. A little scatterbrained, maybe, but focused on coming up with things that will make it a fun day for Neil. Like "being more spontaneous", a comment Neil made that stuck in Jamie's head; after three years of being together that becomes more important. The idea of a "birthday burglar" may sound like fun role play in theory, but imagine being confronted with an unexpected man clad in black when you come home. Poor Neil doesn't know what hit him.

Neil clearly loves Jamie a lot, and after he gets into the spirit of things, that’s the only thing that really counts. He plays along nicely, and as each surprise unfolds, quickly gets used to the idea. He is playful with Jamie, and whatever else they getup to, their encounter between the sheets is as hot as ever.

If you like funny stories that will make you laugh, if you enjoy reading about men in an existing relationship who try to come up with new things to surprise each other, and if you're looking for a read with heat and love, you will probably enjoy this free short story.
