Book Blurb

Putting ink to skin has always been the perfect cover-up for sexy, straight-laced Evan...his way of denying his innermost desires, his punishment for forbidden thoughts. But when he enters the Twisted Cherry for some added tattoos and meets the sexy owner Gabe, Evan realizes that he wants this man, even at the cost of sharing his secret.

Can Evan find a way to tell Gabe how he feels? And even if he does, how will an experienced gay man react to his clumsy confession? If the two should meet alone, will Gabe twist his cherry?

Book Review

Short and hot, this story is about Evan, who believes he has to be straight, and Gabe, the tattooist who convinces him otherwise. The process of Evan's discovery is all physical, and the series of encounters he has ranges from naughty to hot. Evan is a very physical guy, and his main stumbling blocks are dismantled one after the other. While there is no solution to the bigger picture of how Evan will handle his life once he admits he is gay, that would be too much to deal with in such a short story.

Evan is a tough guy, he works hard, and won’t let himself admit he is gay. Women don’t do it for him, yet he feels he needs to be a womanizer to be accepted by his colleagues. The one thing that belongs only to him is his tattoos. They express a side of himself he keeps carefully hidden the rest of the time, and so it is no surprise that it is a tattooist who manages to get him to open up and discover new things.

Gabe is a hot guy, and a great artist, but even better (for Evan), he is sensitive. He can be gentle and tender and that is exactly what Evan needs as he discovers the physical side of man-to-man love. What Gabe gets out of it? Some very hot action, and the satisfaction of having taught another man to appreciate a different kind of sex.

If you like sexy stories, if you enjoy reading about a man discovering a new side to himself and liking it, and if you're looking for an uncomplicated read, then you will probably like this short story.
