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 ›
