Review – Hard at Work

Hard at Work by Kim Dare

My rating: 4.5 Stars

Hard at Work

Hard at Work

Jake and his partner Danny both work at the same company, where Jake is having a hard day, literally as well as figuratively. It seems that his generally shy submissive Danny is sending him increasingly pornographic pictures of himself. When Jake manages to corner Danny and pull him into a storeroom to demand an explanation, he gets that and a whole lot more.

“Hard at Work” is a well-crafted erotic short story. It’s really just one scene, all taking place in that supply closet, but in that one scene we get to know the characters well enough to enjoy the story as more than just a one-handed read. Read more ›

Three Ex Presidents and James Franco


John is in the closet. Literally rather than figuratively. The story of how this Irishman spending a year at an American college came to be locked in the closet takes up most of this book. It all starts at a party, where he meets several other young men who will weave in and out of his life over the course of the next several months. And along the way the story does indeed involve three ex-presidents and James Franco. Read more ›

This review originally appeared in slightly different form at BDSM Book Reviews.

This collection of four previously published short stories features an entire panoply of things that go “bump in the night”, from ghosts to vampires to shape-shifting creatures. The stories are varied, but there is something of a common theme of finding love in unexpected places. Read more ›

You could be forgiven for thinking we had seen the end of the stories featuring detective Gavin DeGrassi. At the conclusion of the last book, Safeword, he was retired from the police force after yet another harrowing case that nearly cost him his life, his home, and his Dom Ben. But when Gavin’s sister-in-law and former partner Myah is snatched from a supermarket parking lot, he can’t just sit on the sidelines. Together with Ben and his brother Cole, they follow a trail to Chicago and Myah’s old precinct, where they uncover a tangled web of missing rent boys and dirty cops. Read more ›
