Dear Author,
A Master sits with his back against the wall with a waiting “bone” for his pet. However his pet must make his way across the floor covered in mouse traps without getting caught in order to get his bone. They’ve been here for hours playing this game. It’s been a slow go and the Master’s pet has been unsuccessful in his first two attempts. What lead up to this wi

Me he convertido en una fan de los autores y comencé este relato preguntándome por qué es uno de los que tiene puntuaciones más bajas, y una vez que lo he terminado creo que ya sé la razón, desde luego la historia entre un actor porno y un chico solitario y con ganas de explorar cosas que siempre ha deseado es original, y muy valiente por la dosis de kink. Cuando comencé a leer M/M siempre imaginé que su público era un público con una mente progresista y abierta y leyendo después críticas de

Freddy's a geeky socially awkward, kleptomaniac with a penchant for science. *mutters* I seem to be on a kleptomaniac roll lately. Anyhoo, he wants to experience submission. He's turned on by all things kink and one night in a drunken fit of whimsy signs up to be considered for a role on Huge Brother. He then receives a message from The Black Matrix to meet and upon arrival meets Wolf.
*cue scary tunes*


Wolf gives him contracts to review which Freddy quickly signs without reading them. How many ti

Yeah, Claire. That’s right. 5 stars. Tough shit if you don’t like it. :P

The juxtaposition of former, toppy porn star (now porn producer) and younger, anxious, jittery sub really worked for me.

Some of the kink in this story is not MY kink, but, hell, it worked for Wolf and Freddy.

The soldier/interrogator scene was extra dirty and particularly well done.

I was at once in awe of and freaked out by the puppy play; it was so damn realistic.

I found the third-person present-tense narration to be slightly jarring, but I was happy to get both Freddy and Wolf's POV.

I read this and the world didn't crash and burn. Why oh why did you warn me off? I was missing out all this time for no good reason at all.

Surprisingly sweet and romantic. And heartbreaking. Not what I expected at all. *looks side-ways*

The only thing that creeped me out and made my jaw drop simultaneously was the kink at the end. Double kink actually.

That dedication, though...*snif*

Let me start by saying: this is not a BDSM romance, (nor is it claiming to be, btw.) What this story IS, is down and dirty, no-holds-barred erotica, plain and simple. It's not pretty and flowery and rule-abiding. It's hard and in your face and rule-breaking. Think, Brad Vance and Ty Marton collaborating, with Jack Brighton tossing in some squick-factor and Todd Young and maybe Ash Penn throwing in characters that endear you with their quirkiness, even as they’re making you squirm.

Addendum: forgot to mention the soldiers...

I can't write a review to do this story justice, not without whopping great spoilers, which kind of negates the purpose, as reviews are most useful to those who have yet to read a story.

I don't usually read in the BDSM and D/s genres, because often the dom gets off far too much on the degradation and pain infliction. Consent is at best dubious - sure, the stories imply it's given, but I'm always doubtful, and I find that hard to reconcile.

I'm just going to say it.

I feel like I just watched JenM and Claire Davis play a variation on the game of chicken.

JenM: I'd like to see you make this into something more than just a one-off fetish image.

Claire Davis: I think I can do that.

I think Davis won.

Time doesn't allow me to write many reviews but with opinions falling all over the place on this short story, I felt obligated to write one here.

After reading some comments about the beginning I feel I have to add.

The writer bleeds emotions to the pages. That is a rare, amazing gift for a writer. It is also demanding for the reader and sometimes even unpleasant as the feelings feel so raw.

That is how I felt about the beginning. Million thoughts going through my head, thinking "This can't be right. There has to

This was the perfect quick read. There was plot and a bit of conflict nothing major just perfect for a short story. The story flowed and the dialogue was smooth and not choppy.

Freddy was just a cute little thing especially when we see him through Wolf's eyes. Wolf is jaded at first but when he looks at Freddy he "sees" Freddy. Yes he is insecure and a little different but that is exactly what calls to him. Wolf is very good for Freddy. during their relationship Freddy seems to blossom. He even

3.5 stars

This was surprisingly romantic and sweet for what you'd expect from the prompt. The kink was, well … quite kinky. I kinda liked it. The writing style (tense and POV) was a little different, not sure it was my favourite.
4.5 stars

This is not a BDSM story. This is KINK.

I can understand why this story is not everyone's cuppa. I went into it thinking I would be extremely uncomfortable reading some of the scenes. Instead I found myself sympathetic to the characters.

Your Kink is Not my Kink, But Your Kink is Okay

Because Freddy is so endearing and because he and Wolf were having so much fun with their kinks, I didn't feel uncomfortable at all. Instead I laughed with them, smiled with them and enjoyed their crea

I went into this book expecting (view spoiler). I won't say why. LOL What I got was a surprisingly endearing story.

The oddest thing about this, and the only thing I found a little distracting, was the POV. And then only in that there was something unusual in how it was used. Not bad. Just different.

I really felt for Freddie. Loved Freddy actually. And Wolf was all kinds of hot.

Actually, I'm upping to to a 5. I enjoyed the story s

Jaded hard-ass Wolf falls for sweet vulnerable Freddy. A story of opposites attracting. A chance meeting turns into something more...

There’s something for everyone here. Lots of heart, some laughs, and a nice dose of kink.

At one point, Wolf thinks (view spoiler)

I have mixed feelings about this, but overall I kinda of enjoyed it. At first Freddy got on my nerves, but the author somehow managed to change him from a TSTL character to a likeable one. The kinky bits were mixed with humour and I like authors who can do that. Nice short read, not to be taken too seriously.

I found this a refreshing and very endearing story.

Freddy, the main story character, and I hope I don't offend, but Freddy has the social ineptitude that fits someone bordering the autistic spectrum. There's desire and knowing what you want, all mixed in with the frustration of not knowing how to achieve what you want, there's a naivety and innocence of self to this character that makes him seem like someone I know, someone very real as opposed to most created characters.

Almost a cry for help he

Okay, OMG, Wow.

Honestly, I was not expecting what I just read. I was completely blown away in a really strange way. Thanks A, thanks for not warning me!!!
See this face?

Right, first off, from the first page, I got the feeling the book was completely like this:

A tremendously, adulterated, thick, incredibly dirty, filthy, rich, dark, chocolate cake that is all fucking naughty and nice, absolutely pigging lickable,

I read this one with an open mind because it isn't my usual choice of book.
It was not what I expected.
At its heart its a tender love story about a older porn star and a young man. The young man, Freddy, is dying to for a boyfriend and a chance to try out lots of adventourous sex. He meets Wolf and falls for him.
Let's not be coy, this book is delightfully filthy and sinfully sexy.
But its written in a gentle way to make you question your beliefs and in the end who am I to judge.

That was... not good (I'm nice here...) and represents all what's wrong in a BDSM relationship. It would be good if an author who apparently knows next to nothing about the lifestyle did some proper research before writing the story.

Contemporary kink story about Freddy, a young man who when drunk signs up for a reality porn show, not realising what he's actually agreed to. He meets Wolf, former porn star and owner of the company hosting the shoot. The pair fall for each other and Freddy discovers and gets to act on some of his kinks as their relationship progresses. Some elements of this story don't work at all well for me.
Alexis Woods
Second read.

A hard book to label as there is just way too much kink to define it, but that's what makes it all the more fun to read. A little rough around the edges, but a lot of Ms. Davis and Mr. Stewart's books are. They get right in your face, into the nitty gritty, and take the reader along for the ride.

A great short story

I laughed, cried and worried for them. I highly recommend this book as the best I've read all summer. Finally characters I could read more about.

Kinky as fuck and not for faint hearted.
This is aboyt Wolf who is an over the hill porn star and Freddy who is a geek.
They meet via accident and fall in love.
Wolf is not so adventurous but Freddy has a lust for extreme kink so Wolf indulges him.
Its a story of many levels. I really liked the kink and I really liked the gentless along with the animal times I had to shut my eyes.
What I really liked is that its like a bolt out the blue.
Not for everyone but it did it for me.
I'm not rating this since I read only the very beginning. What I read, however, makes me believe this is not my story. Non-con.
