Harrison meets the artist as Giles is running away from setting up a showing at a gallery, totally freaked out. Harrison is immediately intrigued. He doesn't think Giles is crazy, but he does believe that Giles n ...more

Sean Michael has yet again kept me up late reading. His writing style is a bit different, and at times I can't follow who is speaking straight away. The formatting on my kindle could of been to blame for this though. At times, I must admit, that the dialogue doesn't ring true for me, but I still enjoy his writing very much. His characters are not complete carbon copies of each other, and how his submissive characters react to meeting their needs enthralls me. I enjoy that he takes successful men ...more

Drawn was an interesting story for me for several reasons.

First of all, the characters were fascinating. Giles, the sub, is an artist with clear issues, tending to forget reality over 'his art'. Harrison is the Dom with a lot of patience, but also a deep understanding of what Giles needs. So much so that he's able to flex 'strict protocol' somewhat when Giles has trouble understanding the whole 'BDSM thing' is real.

Secondly this was interesting because the story managed to reflect Giles's intern

Okey doke, I did what I said I would; I tried the next one in the 'Hammer Series' efter DNF'ing the first one. And this one worked pretty well for me.

I loved Giles!

A solid story, but not outstanding like I think it could have been

Warning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS.

Rating: 7/10

PROS:
- Michael captures the fractured mind of an obsessive artist very well. Giles is flighty and endlessly distractable, and he sees everything in terms of its artistic merit. He injures his feet at one point, and when Harrison wraps them for him, Giles wonders, “idly, if his feet [will] leave interesting patterns on the gauze.”
- Harrison is the p

This is one of the Hammer novels I enjoyed the most, only third to Bent (which always gonna be first XD), and second to Burn

I'm gonna jump right into the ending of the book so for those that haven't read it *SPOILER* (a vague one but SPOILER nonetheless)

It might seem like an incomplete ending with a sub that isn't calling his lover a Sir and doesn't quite believe in BDSM being more than just play, but for me its quite wonderful to have a story like that, one that leaves it up to us readers(till

I have mixed feelings about all of the books and stories in Sean Michael’s Hammer series. The Doms tend to be all-knowing and their subs tend to be what some might describe as mentally ill. Drawn fits in with that overly simplified description of the characters who inhabit the Hammer BDSM club, and yet it doesn’t.
Mr. Michael continues to develop the Hammer series as a showplace for diversity in D/s lifestyles. The plot in Drawn is unique and the character development is multifaceted. I enjoyed t

So my first and major complaint about book one in this series was it was sooo long. Over 400+ pages of the sub fighting till the last page. I liked it, but it was not a fast easy read. So I get this one and its 230 pages so half of the first book. Well this book needs at least 100 more pages. I don't feel like Giles ever did come to accept the BDSM life. That he liked Harrison's attention but love way was out in left field. Giles kept saying he wasn't crazy. But I'm not convinced even with Harri ...more

I am loving this series.This book was as good as the first one.But I wish it was a little more bigger.Author finished it in a rush I felt so.Giles our crazy hero was so lovable as was Harrison the dom.I think I get more romance fix from MM books than any other.I am reading the 3rd book right now and seriously I cant put the book down.Its that good.

Giles and Harrison were more or less a little bit of the formulaic clueless sub with the Dom who instantly knows what’s best for him, but it’s still my form of crack because I obviously keep coming back for more! We did get a bit more substance in this one as the author tried to help us understand Giles and what drove his issues, so I appreciate that. For me, this was just pure “kick back, relax, and read” time.

I didn't warm to the characters until at least halfway through the book. Just like the first book in this series the relationship was not what I've come to expect in bdsm. It also didn't hold my attention very well which surprised me because I thought this one was supposed to be better than the first.

This book was okay. It kept my interest and I will continue the series. There were a couple of things within the book that made stick to 2 and not 3 stars. I enjoyed the growth of this relationship more than the first book. I felt more connected to the characters and what they were thinking/feeling, especially Giles(whom I keep thinking of Buffy the Vampire Slayer- LOL). There were a few phrases that were repetitive, which got on my nerves. I felt it was not necessary.

Drawn by Sean Michael is part of the collection of stories centered around the Hammer Club, a high-end, private BDSM club. The main characters in Drawn are Giles DeSante, a brilliant painter and Harrison Ornell, a wealthy young businessman. Drawn is a very focused short story; much of the action surrounds Giles and Harrison as they work out the mechanics of developing a Dom/sub relationship in the midst of Giles frenetic and creative artistry.

Giles and Harrison are both likable characters; Micha

Another of the Hammer novels, Giles is a “crazy” artist who literally runs into Harrison while escaping from the stress of his opening. However Harrison is intrigues and goes to the show and helps Giles out by taking him away from the show. However he soon sees that Giles has issues, he’s a cutter, although Giles won’t discuss it. Harrison figures that Giles needs pain to focus and clear his head, and he can offer it through BDSM. However Giles thinks BDSM is something in books and pretty much i ...more

This is typical Sean Michael and yet it's not. The typical: lots of sex, an all knowing dom who recognizes his perfect sub and a needy sub looking for the right dom.

The not typical is that we really got to delve into Giles' mind (sub) and his struggle with his artistic gift. We also saw a sub who was more than the typically cute Sean Michael subs who needed a guiding hand, but one who was more troubled in his struggle with himself, his needs and his art. He threw temper tantrums, forgets to eat,

I love the Hammer series. It's great how the couple highlighted in each story is so unique, but the pair fit together so well. They are truly just what the other person needs.

Harrison is so strong and quiet. When he bumps into Giles... literally, he is immediately interested in the young man and invites him for a drink.

Their growing love is often hindered by Giles need to distance himself from others and his belief that an artist has to suffer for his art.

Giles needs someone to let him release h

I struggled with this book and never really found myself grabbed by the story. For me the book was too slow without a lot actually happening.

The initial relationship between the MCs developed relatively quickly, with them launching straight into a physical relationship. From this point they had a lot of sex - A LOT OF SEX! (not to say that this isn't expected in a book of this genre).

The D/s relationship was strangely defined in this book with Harrison spending most of the book trying to convinc

Re-reading. Only now do I feel I get Giles, and really see how exhausted the man is. Only now I understand how he's in a different world from others with his art.

I love how Sean Michael sees what people really need: rest, sleep, sex and real food. We don't need to get overworked, we don't need big houses and expensive cars (although Harrison does have those, but that's not the point here). I love how this theme of people's real needs comes through in the Hammer novels, especially in Bent, where

Out of all of the stories in the Hammer Series, this is the only one that I didn't like. There was a lot of repetitive dialog, which for me made it hard to believe that Giles and Harrison connected. Yes, they said they were in love with each other and had loads of sex, but for me Gil never got the BDSM aspect of it. He always brushed it off or never took it seriously. Harrison was an okay character but it seemed like he tried to use sex as a means to get Gil's attention and understanding, which ...more

This series is growing on me, although let's be honest, it's mostly sex.

It is also making me wonder how prevalent BDSM is in a type of therapy, this novel is just another example of people who have been abused, addictions, or compulsions find a balance in BDSM. I wonder how much of that is just fiction, made up for drama. Would be interesting to research.


I loved our flighty artist and I love how Harrison works with Giles' issues, not calling him crazy. I love how they found a way for peace rathe

It's a pretty typical Hammer book with a big Dom who finds a sub who needs him. In this case it's Giles who's an important artist who doesn't know how to take care of himself. Harrison is the patient type who is willing to explain about his BDSM lifestyle multiple times, despite Giles constantly thinking it's all a game. Giles just doesn't seem to get it...that Harrison is serious about not only him and their relationship but the lifestyle. As with all Sean Michael's books the sex is hot and fre ...more

Pretty good. This is exactly what I expected. Think I'll continue to read the rest of the series, but only when I'm up for lots of sex,very little actual story dialogue, and an ending that makes me want to know where the end of the book went. Yeah, seems I'm in the middle of a trend. A trend where there is no HEH, just this weird HFN that is really only implied because the reader, me, decides that's where things go. This book was just that. The end just happens. I was left asking, out loud I sho ...more

I confess that I don't like her style of writing & the only reason I read this was because I was given it for free ... I'm not going to rate it because I knew before starting that the book would be awful so I won't damage her ratings with a single star ... if you like confused dialogue, too much sex, child-like subs & reading every single though

Warning for those who self harm may trigger

This book is well written but I was distracted by my triggers. The self harm isn't a big one for me any more but being falsely diagnosed and hospitalized is a big one. I can usually ignore this but both were mentioned at least once a chapter if not more often. The bdsm lifestyle can help those who need the pain of self harm to stay grounded but the fact all that was being done to help him with the trauma of his sister having him committed is agreeing he

This book is a little different from the others that I have read. I like each character individually but together they just didn't seem to click.
Giles was a fascinating character to read with all of his quirks. Everything for him is his Art.
Bumping into Harrison on the street was such a stroke of luck for Harrison.
Harrison decides that Giles "needs" what he can give him from that?
I did enjoy the different D/S relationship with these two. Maybe I needed just one more chapter...who knows. But I w

This is one of Sean Michael's best books that I have read. The characters were really well thought out and totally accessible. It was easy to understand both Giles and Harrison, to see where they were coming from, their own insecurities, desires, wants and needs.
This was gentle in plot, with little angst, but I was totally hooked. Full of self-discovery, love, care and fun. Perfect for my lazy Sunday afternoon.

Loved the book! The characters, like in the first were real and well written, off of the page real. Giles took my heart right away. He's so intense and doesn't believe anyone can help but he just underestimated HArrison. Loved it and off to the next in the series, Found after hunting high and low for it!!! I had to go to the author's website to get it so if anyone of you are looking for it there it is! lol

I can't believe I am going to say this but...too much sex and not enough substance. I wanted to know so much more about Giles, I wanted more of his back story, more of his reactions to Hammer. I just wanted more. Plus....what was with the editing in this book? Was it Harrison or Hunter (who the hell is Hunter anyway)?? Sorry....just one of my peeves

I hate to say it, but I think this is my least favorite of the Hammer series books so far. I never really connected with either main character and the sex scenes were almost too numerous for me. They also came off as a bit one note, unlike the others I've read. I'm glad I read it but I honestly don't think it will get a re-read.

Again, this series is too much hardcore for my comfort, but still it's so well written and intense that I can't stop reading! Finished this in one sitting. I enjoyed this one more than the first in the series - I have a weak spot for excentric artists! ^.^

This wasn't one of my favorite Hammer stories. I did love and feel for Giles and his scatterbrainedness. Most of this story takes place outside of Hammer, aside from a few meals. I did like how Harrison was able to find ways to redirect Giles' focus, even though things were often repititious.
