Review - Guarded

Posted in Book Reviews on Sep 16, 2014

Guarded

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

This is one of those rare books where the blurb is more concise and accurate than what I might have written:

On the surface, rock star Jordan Kane has it all. His band No Rules is burning up the charts and headlining a world tour. His bodyguard doubles as a hot, kinky boyfriend who knows just how to push all his buttons. But behind the scenes, he’s suffocating. More...

Review - Ridden Hard

Ridden Hard

Everyone lies on their resume, and aspiring actor Jamie is no different. He lists horse riding among his talents, although the last time he was on a horse was when he was a child, and it was a donkey. When he lands a prize role in a film based on Arthurian legends, he's hoping he can just bluff his way through, but his lack of skill is instantly obvious to everyone, especially the film's horse trainer Andrej.

Andrej agrees to give Jamie some private coaching, but it soon becomes clear that his coaching methods are more than a little unorthodox, and more than horses get ridden in the end. More...

Review - The Cross and the Trinity

The Cross and the Trinity

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

In “The Cross and the Trinity” we witness the evolution of a BDSM menage relationship. As the book opens, Tate and Sebastian's relationship is under many of the same strains that almost any couple - gay or straight, kinky or vanilla - experiences. And like too many young couples, they don't have the maturity or life experience to help them deal with the stresses of work and other responsibilities. Although James is initially seen as a threat to the relationship, owing to his past dealings with Tate, he goes out of his way to help the two patch up their relationship, becoming the kind of mentor the younger men need.

While watching a public scene, he is befriended by an older man who encourages him to take a turn on the stage to be flogged by the Dominant. Although not into public scenes, something about the man, Carlo, inspires confidence, and when the Dom picks Jace out of the crowd, he agrees. More...

The Non-Con Conundrum

Posted in News on Jul 22, 2014

My recent read and review of Slave in Training got me thinking about a number of things - and that's one of the big reasons I liked it. One of the aspects I liked about the book was the consensual nature of the protagonist's enslavement. He chooses life as a slave and is given several opportunities throughout the story to give up the path he has chosen. What struck me most about this was just how rare this is in most M/M Master/slave books coming out these days. It seems like far too many of these stories are really about rape and torture rather than anything else. More...

Review - A Man, A Jersey and a Tight End

Posted in Book Reviews on Sep 19, 2013

A Man, A Jersey and a Tight End

Nearly two years have passed since Brian, ‘Goldilocks’, moved in with his three bears to set up an unusual, somewhat polyamorous, relationship with them. In this sequel to Goldilocks and His Three Bears, the strains of ‘Daddy’ Paul's heavy travel schedule is showing on Brian, who is almost out of control, despite Momma Bear Jim's best disciplinarian efforts. It doesn't help that Jim's own sub, baby bear Scott, is also out on the road. It isn't long before Paul and Scott return home, but things don't get back to normal right away. Both Brian and Scott have issues they're trying to hide from their Doms.

In something of a second story within the book, Scott brings home a stray cowboy from one of his road trips. The boy Joshua is shy and inexperienced. He needs the guidance of an older man, but who? Paul and Jim obviously have their hands full. More...

Review - Gilliflowers, Bonds of Affection, Memoirs of a Houseboy 2008

Gilliflowers, Bonds of Affection, Memoirs of a Houseboy 2008

Volume 0 of Memoirs of a Houseboy

Spoiler alerts: If you haven't read the earlier books in the series, then this review might give away some of what you'll best discover for yourself. Also, there are strong hints at what happens in this book.

It's time for another year with my favorite sometimes-but-often-not submissive houseboy. This volume covers the year of 2008 and returns to the style of the first two books, with lots of little 'diary' entries alongside longer, detailed stories of particular episodes in the topsy-turvy world of Gillibran Brown, houseboy and young pup to two masters, Dick and Shane. It isn't easy, being Gilli. The young man's struggle with epilepsy is once again front-and-center in this book, and it really does become a literal struggle as his two daddies try and force their young lover to come to terms with the limits the condition puts on how he lives his life.

Review - Achilles and the Houseboy

Achilles and the Houseboy

This further adventure of my favorite houseboy in a domestic menage with two older Doms is actually an outtake from his previous book, More Fun With Dick and Shane. With fewer digressions that the first two books, this volume squarely tackles an issue only briefly touched on in previous books, and one of the most sensitive aspects of a menage relationship: jealously.

After an hilarious introduction in which the reasoning - which only this author could conjure up - behind the title is explained, the book gets pretty serious. Gili is reminded, in very graphic fashion, that his daddies Dick and Shane share a history that he will never be a part of. They were together ten years before the stroppy young houseboy came into their lives, and their bed. Jealously rears its ugly head, and can't be easily dismissed. More...

Review - Pup

Pup (Guards of Folsom #1)

As Tackett Austin marks the passing of another year with a drink at his BDSM club, the Guards of Folsom, he begins to look back and question some of the choices he has made. Yes, he is well-to-do and has a successful career, and he has a well-earned reputation in the club as a good Dom, with subs lining up to serve him, but as he looks around at his friends, he sees other Doms with their own collared subs, happily living the lifestyle full time. Tackett only ever plays at the club and has never had a sub of his own, even under a short term contract, but as he sees how happy his friends are, he begins to wonder what it would be like to have a long term sub of his very own, what it would be like to own a pup.
