I don't even know what to say. Oh wait, yes I do! Can assholes be orgasmic?


It's porn, kinky porn at that I should just go with it, right? Right.

I think Mr. Brighton may just become for me what Mr. Sketchman is to Baby. This shit right here were funnee. If I were a betting woman, I'd say this was written one handed. Yes, there are tons of SPaG errors. Who has time for spell check when you're pounding one out? Priorities, people.

What we do have is humiliation fantasy wish fulfillment. Jarvis's… g
Appears to also be titled "Debasement." Dirty, super kinky novella about an office assistant who meets a guy several times in an elevator and gets turned on by lots of really, really dirty talk. He considers himself a top and fights how the words of what the other guy claims he will do to him turn him on. Finally, they take it to the next step which is rough sex in a basement room. If you like it rough and dirty, you'll enjoy this one. Warning: Does contain unsafe sexual practices and ...more

A good idea.
A great many errors.
A great number of repetitions.
A ghastly tendency toward purple prose.
A gander that showcases the author yet has work to do on his writing.
Dirty talk to the max with this one!

Quit at 4%. I'm sure the story is great, it just wasn't what I was looking for. I hate days like this.

Love this, but you really have to read all three to 'get it' because there is a cunning plan behind all the excessive humiliation and degradation (which incidentally Jarvis loves as much as he hates it)
The point is emphasised many times that he could back out of it at crucial moments, but he elects to stay.
It's pure gay porn fantasy. Everything is over the top in size, virility, the way Jarvis's body accepts everything. Because, in a way, gay porn/erotica has as many unwritten rules as mm roman

Because there's a difference between a female erotic writer to a male erotic writer..

I'm a big Brighton fan but this one just didn't do it for me past an o.k. rating. I just didn't engage like I normally do with his lusciously dirty work. Elements of hotness = check, a non con feel = check, but, when finished, I was kind of eh. I much prefer the Wild Side or Vorinov Books. YMMV.

On one hand, I had some serious issues with this story. On the other, I think the main character deserved the degradation and humiliation aimed at him. My problem with that? He enjoyed it. That made me dislike the story greatly.

Jarvis Clarke is an obnoxious and arrogant businessman. He works closely with the CEO of his company and feels that he's much better than pretty much everyone else on earth. At home, he has an amazing boyfriend that he doesn't deserve. He is critical and hateful and trea

This was a short quick read that was ok. Jarvis Clark was stunned when he was verbally abused in the elevator at work and lewdly propositioned. Jarvis is young and handsome - the PA to the boss - a man with influence and power. For me this book ok I am not much into the whole humiliation thing the main character was cheating on his partner. The book was rough and dirty and kinky, but I must say spitting in someone's face is just nasty and not sexy. This was my first time reading this author and ...more

2.5 stars.
Taunted, teased, desperately in need. Don't get it at home, I need to get pleased, even if that means getting smacked on your knees. Kiss my shoes, Master, please. Bareback is what you get. Do you want it? No. Then leave. This is a BDSM themed read :)

Same cover for his book Debasement. Wondering if it's the same book?

How my tastes have changed! I thought this was going to be so intense. Instead, it's a gritty dirty humiliating porn piece. I enjoyed it! 3.5 star. Jarvis is an uptight preppy little shit. When he's sexually harassed on the elevator at work, it sparks his slutty bottoming desires.

If you want to read some dirty humiliating sex, this is the one for you. Makes me want to read the next couple in this series. There is no romance and very little plot. There is a bit too much talk from Jarvis in his h

In theory I thought the dirty debasement promised in book would be hot, but the reality of it...or rather the reality of reading it was more than I could actually stomach. It was everything it promised, true—rough, kinky, abusive, and at some points arousing. But I just couldn't get down with spitting in your partners face during sex, and other such not sexy things (even if the MC was a dislikable character). I may have liked it if it hadn't been taken quite so far. This is of course a person

So, yeah, this was part of my shopping spree of free gay erotica from amazon e-books.
It wasn't that much of a BDSM story, but rather a humiliation fantasy - but who cares?
The sex was kinky and quite graphic. In no way too technical or disgusting, but sometimes rather flowery. Repetions were plenty as were slips of the pen.
Major plus: the sex was consensual despite the theme.
I'll read another one by the author - if it's free again.

Ok Jarvis is a arrogant prick and his debasement is very satisfying. I'm normally all good with this type of play between consenting adults. Unfortunately, since Jarvis' choices also have to potential to harm an innocent party, it just left me feeling rather uncomfortable. It quite spoiled the story for me.

I didn't think I would like this one, but it was free. I was pleasantly surprised. It was captivating and I could get into the character's head. Even the rather unhygienic basement floor didn't put me off. Nice, rough, and delicious. In the end, I ended up buying the second and third books of the series, because I wanted to know how far the character would submit to his master's whims.

This was ok, it could have been better.
The story is good but I got a bit annoy with the" and then"
rhythm of the story. Felt like it would never end for some reason.
But for a free story it was fine. There are more books to read . May be I will may be I won't.

A good horny read. Just the right length with a good balance of story, character and sex. This is the first book I've read by Jack Brighton. I'll looking forward to the other books in the Nemesis trilogy and reading more of this authors work.

Want more! I love short stories but this one left my tongue hanging out! The nemesis is the sexiest man ever and his presence jumps through the page! Good story and not for the faint of heart or the romance enthusiast! No romance just plain old lust!
It was ok for erotica... but the character Mr Clark had too much inner speech going on for me. it kept distracting me from the actual story bc his brain would launch into a story abt the past or his childhood or his boyfriend Huw.. Btw what kind of name is they anyway?

This was interesting and took a very different look at things. I think my biggest thing was feeling sorry for Huw

If you are looking for raw, dirty, humiliating sex, then this is for you. Not one of Jack Brighton's netter books.

Remember that one porn video of attempted rough sex with humiliation and bad script & acting? Well this is practically the written version of that.
