Review - From Top to Bottom by Kevin Klehr

Posted in Book Reviews on May 30, 2017

From Top to Bottom

Dedicated top Tony is curious about bottoming. What's a modern top to do? Form a support group of other tops who want to give things a try from the other side, of course. “From Top to Bottom” is a rather tongue-in-cheek erotic short novellete. There's plenty of hot scenes and humor to help cover up the rather preposterous plot set-up. More...

Review - Counterbalance by Aidan Wayne

Posted in Book Reviews on Nov 23, 2016


John leads a settled life as the head rigger for an acrobatic troupe based in Canada. Disfigured in a hate crime when he was a teenager, he is used to being avoided and left to get on with his work of figuring out how to stage the troupe's daring performances safely. But things change when a new group of acrobats from China arrives for the up-coming season. One of them, Bao, seems fascinated rather than repulsed by John's looks, and seeks him out at every opportunity. John isn't quite sure what to make of Bao's friendliness. Surely the lithe young performer can't be interested in a troll like John. More...

If I Were Fire

Kindly note: a proof copy of this book was supplied by the author in exchange for a review.

A world-weary adventuring count trying to salvage his family estate, a bad boy who wants to be good, a local gangster, and a search for hidden treasure. All this is packed into this very short novelette, running less than 60 pages.

Salvesto is the rather down-on-his-luck count. He has returned to Siena upon the death of his father, hoping that the acts which forced him into exile have been forgotten. Unfortunately, his father descended into madness near his end and seems to have sold off or, rumor has it, hidden away many of the family's valuable art works. More...

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 - Virgin Territory

Virgin Territory

The blurb for this short novelette sets it up rather nicely:

Danny may be a virgin, but that's not all he is...

When a fellow dom points Aaron in the direction of the new guy visiting in their local leather bar, there are a lot of things that draw him to Danny. One of those things is the rumor that Danny is a virgin in terms of leather, guy-on-guy action, and even in so far as his experience with girls. Add to that the fact that Danny is hot as hell and knows how to throw down a challenge, and Aaron is helpless to resist.

Danny knew as soon as he laid eyes on Aaron that he wanted him. He's not going to let a little thing like complete inexperience get in his way. He survived his best friend drunkenly admitting their virginity to the entire club on their first night there, but that doesn't mean he likes the way people have treated him, or the assumptions they've made about him since that night. More...
