Book Blurb

Are you willing to put yourself in our hands?

Smart, successful, handsome, and thoroughly sick of the club scene, Don ventures into a popular upscale dating service. Aroused and intrigued by the boldfaced sexual queries on the Romeo Club’s application, he finds himself embellishing one answer after the next. He thinks he’s taking control of his fate, but when he’s done, he ends up turning over a lot more than just his questionnaire to the dominant Adonis who runs the service.

In a private back room, beneath the snick of handcuffs, the slide of silk over his eyes, and not one hot mouth but two upon his skin, Don learns just how much more than matchmaking the Romeo Club has to offer a guy who doesn’t mind a few surprises.

Note from author: This is a pure, unapologetic erotica short story, which contains no hint or promise of romance.

Book Review

Don sets out to gain control over his (dating) life, and ends up learning that control isn’t everything. With a sense of humor that made me smile and a level of curiosity that would have killed a cat (but, luckily, not Don) he explores what it means to be taken care of, and how much a few surprises can enhance his libido.

Don may not know this about himself, but he is more than open to a surprise or two. He is downright happy to experiment, not to say a real risk taker. After all, he goes into the Romeo Club thinking it is a dating service. The kind of things the questionnaire asked should have been his first hint there is far more going on behind the façade of this ‘Club’ than meets the eye. The personal interview he is subjected to next was definitely a further hint – not that he took that seriously either. Halfway into the story it becomes pretty clear that he will do anything for pleasure – and he is not particularly choosey as to how he gets it. Which makes for a vey hot read indeed!

If you like reading stories about men giving up control to receive pleasure, if a slightly humorous style is you thing, and if you like more than two partners pleasuring each other without much emotional entanglement at all, you might like this story. I not only liked the premise, it also made me smile.
