Book Blurb

Gavin has been going to motorcycle shows for years, hoping to find a hot biker who will introduce him to the BDSM he craves. After years of searching, he meets Terry, who seems to be exactly what he’s been looking for, and vice versa. Before they can play, Gavin has to learn about the differences between fantasy and reality.


Book Review

There can be a big difference between fantasizing about BDSM and actually experiencing it. This is the story of Gavin finally meeting the man of his dreams and making some of his fantasies come true. The way he goes about it is really funny, his first bike ride scares him almost to nausea, but the BDSM bits all fall into place as if he'd been born to it. This is not hardcore by any means, more like a "gentle introduction" to some of the aspects of finding and being charmed by an older, more BDSM-experienced man.

Gavin has been dreaming about a leather daddy for years, and has a strategy about how to meet the leather daddy of his dreams. Visiting biker shows is his biggest hope, but he is also very careful when he does meet a man who might make his fantasies come true. As a consequence, they both get into a relationship slowly, and I like how the sane and consensual, not to mention the safe, played out here. Not that it made any of what Gavin experiences any less hot! I think the fact that it was the first time for him made it both hot and very sweet.

Terry is more than a little interested in Gavin, but he is also responsible and very caring. I like that he didn’t bark out rough orders in the beginning, and always let Gavin know there was an out. Terry is also more than capable to show Gavin a range of activities, so Gavin has a choice. We don't find out a lot about him beyond that, but then, this is pretty much focused on the sub's experience.

If you like stories about a man exploring his fantasies, if you enjoy reading about an introduction to BDSM, and if you're looking for a read that is both hot and sweet, you will probably like this short story.
