If I have a soaking-wet-panties-shelf here on GR, this book would definitely be on it.

Therefore 5 Brilliant Lip-Smacking Stars for this high quality collection of BDSM erotica.

It's a must read for all TPE (Total Power Exchange) fans. Especially those who loves good doses of manhandling and masculinity in their BDSM stories.

Contained within its pages are Master/Slave Fantasies that shows us how consensual slavery could be a very fulfilling and erotic experience. Apart from that it also enlightens

There are enough Warnings EVERYWHERE not to attract the false readers to the book.

So, if you will be shocked by an extremely graphical presentation full of taboos, you can blame ONLY yourself, it is really only your OWN fault.

Because before you can dive into this collection out of 17 VERY SMUTTY short novels you have to pass first through the warnings of publisher, then through the author's foreword - that explains you the meaning of TPE(Total Power Exchange) - and at last through the ed

The first time I tried the stories in the book I cherry-picked the ones other readers seemed to have enjoyed the best, but they weren't really for me. But now that I've checked out the rest of the stories I found the ones I thought would be second stringers actually had more of the emotional connection I was looking for. I enjoyed those much more, particularly the longer multi-part final story, the eponymous Winner Takes All.

3.5 stars.


You should definitely go and read Kynthos-the-Archer's glo

Every now and then I read something that reminds me that M/M romance and gay erotica are seriously different genres. I dislike essentialist sounding explanations, but there are times, (most often after I've spent more than four and a half minutes watching pornography) when I just feel like shouting out: men and women are turned on by very different kinds of stories!

I enjoyed reading these stories--they are well-written and inventive--but I liked them more because they gave me a window into a wo

This is one of the most authentic BDSM books I've ever read. It's an anthology of several stories. They are extremely erotic, very graphic, and incredibly well-written and well-edited.

My intention was to give this book five stars, and I would have done so if not for the very last story. Although I understand the perspective of this first-person narrative, the story itself was beyond disturbing to me. It accounted for 30% of the book and it included scenes which were horrifyingly sadistic. The p

This is a collection of 17 short stories (231 pages).
1. Collared at the Dog Pound
Sub’s POV
A young man wishing to find a master goes to the bar Dog Pound, where the subs are gathered at a central place (the pound) in the bar for the masters to look at them and choose the ones they want. But the MC never goes with the other potential slaves. He stays at a table in the back, looking at what’s happening in the bar because a soothsayer told him that it would be the master who would go looking for him
I'll rate/review as I go along


Collared at the Dog Pound - 3.75 stars - a boy who wants to be owned finally gets collared. A Master to buy a dog bowl and take care of him and treat him the way a dog/slave needs to be. There was breath & piss play. Also rough sex. A little SM. Pretty good. Enjoyed the Master/slave dynamic in this much so I didn't mind the piss.

Collection of smutty BDSM shorts that include some taboos as well as porn with little plot hot scenes. Danny's Review sums up the individual shorts well. My faves were Collared at the Dog Pound, Goodnight my slaveboys, and Winner takes all. Most are contemporary but there are some fantasy as well (two which were not my faves). Good read for those who like the smutty bdsm and don't mind some of the squeamish.

Feb 09, 2014 Jenna rated it it was ok
I prefer my master/slave fantasies to be dub-con/non-con, especially if they involve humiliation/degradation, so this book didn't really work for me since all but two stories were very much consensual with extremely eager to please slaves. And one of those two non-con stories switched so fast from resistant top to ultra-submissive slave that I didn't find it believable enough.

If you love very submissive slaves, dialogue you'd hear in porn, and lots of consensual watersports, this is the book for
This was a really hot read, if you don't mind some serious dirty sex with some dub-con/non-con mixed in with it.

I enjoyed all the stories, some were harder to read than others but they were soo dirtyly delicious.

Some good BDSM but not always following the rules!

A good cross-section of BDSM stories. This book contains some very tender moments as well as some very disturbing ones as well. Although the BDSM culture varies considerably from couple to couple there are certain things they all have in common – mainly the fact that one role is master and one role is slave. From what I understand this is still a mutual consenting relationship between two people. I didn't give this five stars because the use of c

The last story was one of the best examples of "The Test" that I've read since reading "Mr. Benson" How much is a person willing to withstand in order to prove (or discover) that he wants to be someone's slave? And from the other point of view, if you were looking for the perfect slave, wouldn't you keep trying to devise ways that would make them fail in order to satisfy yourself that, while good, this one wasn't "the one" you were searching for? And if they kept passing all the tests, wouldn't ...more
2.5 - 3 stars
Anthologies are something I try to avoid if I can and this one was no different than many of the others I have read. I am not a lover of short stories and I ahd a really hard time getting into this. Christopher Pierce was a new author for me and I will have to give him another chance in the future. If I didn't have to read this for a challenge,I'm not sure if I would have finished this book.

Well, it's not romantic drama. It's action movie, with all sorts of body fluids.
Let me start by stating something: I don't like 24/7 TPE books. Every now and then, I read a book with this premise, and still haven't found a book that made me change my opinion. Besides from that, I'm no fan of slaves, so I wasn't going to enjoy this that much, and that's entirely my fault. However, I didn't buy the book just to hate it, but rather because I was curious, and some stories are hot anyway! I liked a few stories better than others. Goodnight my slaveboys was sweet and nice and one ...more

The Executioner's Boy was well worth the read. Just wowed me - the ending especially! A couple others (Collared at the Dog Pound, Hard Day's Reward, Sold to the Highest Bidder) were enjoyable, too, but overall the stories had a bit too much same-ness or just didn't hit my kinks (or didn't hit them the right way, I guess). (I was open to being shown the draw of water sports, but I didn't have a feeling one way or the other because there was no emotional/mental tie to why the water sports turned t ...more
I'm not rating this because I enjoyed the first story which was very visceral. The rest of the book (as much as I read anyway) was a disappointment for me. The stories are most definitely kinky but I prefer my kink to come with romance and some level of shared respect. Instead I found the stories veered towards humiliation and were a little chilling so much so that I lost the drive to keep reading and perhaps find another story more to my tastes.

I enjoyed the stories but I really hate anthologies. I just really prefer a full length novel. I had to read this for a challenge so don't base my opinion on the author or the book. If you enjoy M/M bdsm stories than this book is for you. Most of the stories are told from the sub's point of view. This was a very steamy read, what true erotica should be.
Jul 05, 2013 JR rated it it was amazing
hot stories about hot guys. Pierce writes it like it should be written without holding back. rough and tough guys who give it and take it like real leather guys do. scenes are hot and very descriptive, he really doesn't hold back on what these guys do and want from each other.
