Review - 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.
Can a virgin handle coming face to face with a serious and experienced dom? Maybe the real question is, can the dom handle the virgin?
Consisting mostly of just a couple of scenes between Aaron and Danny, “Virgin Territory” is a hot and sweet little story that takes the standard formula of experienced-dom-meets-inexperienced-natural-sub and turns it on its head. The little surprise Danny has in store for Aaron definitely keeps you reading to see where things go.
The trick with any story this short is developing the characters enough so you care about what happens to them. That's especially true if you plan to surprise the reader with something about one of the main characters. This story pulls all that off very well. You won't know everything about these two men, but you'll want to know more, and that's what counts.
Unlike the author's longer works, there's nothing too deep here, but there's nothing wrong with that. “Virgin Territory” is an thoroughly entertaining short read, perfect for a hot summer evening.
