Chip knows Dawson is gay like him, out but not loud about it. Maybe that’s why he

4.5 stars. I thought this was one of Mr. Michael's better shorts, even though I wanted to edit out all of the "baby"s. Actually had a well done emotional fisting scene. I wish this story would be extended into a full length book.

Hey! It had my first fisting scene! And, it seemed appropriate and kind of integral to the plot. Interesting...

For some men, especially those in demanding jobs where everyone expects them to be in charge and strong all the time, the need to let go in the bedroom is a very tough one to admit. It impacts their self-image as a man, since society has some very clear (if mistaken) ideas about what a man should be like and how he should behave. The contradiction they see between what they need to be like on the job versus what they want to be off the job is difficult to reconcile.

This is the story of Chip, one

An enjoyable BDSM story

This is a really enjoyable book about 2 men who work in law enforcement. Chip struggles with his need to be dominated, to be forved to submit and to let go, whilst doing a demanding job. Dawson is a Dom through and through and being permitted to dominate Chip is a blessing to be appreciated,but the two have to admit their needs before any future is secure and like quite a few Sean Michael books, the HEA I'd hinted at, but life is only a work in progress, not collars or

Chis is drawn into Dawson's conversation that seems so casual. But Dawson might just be laying a bit of a trap. Chip is drawn into what Dawson offers but a crisis sends him running and it takes patience to fix things.

I picked this book becuase I'd read a previous book by this author and wanted to see more of his work. I like the tight writing style and the toughness in the characters his writes. But he seems to be writing big stories in a small format. With this story, I am left wanting a deeper, more fully developed story line with more internal growth shown on the page instead of implied in the time lapse transitions. Still, I'm looking forward to reading more from this author, basically becuase I'm ...more

I'm not a big fan of heavy bdsm in any form but this was more on the mild side and to me I felt it was tastefully done. It did feel too short and the ending kind of left you hanging unresolved fully but again, I enjoyed it more than expected.

This was kind of a big mess as far as I'm concerned. Couldn't get past the first 10 pages. Two gay men in a bar talking about how un-macho it is to bottom.

Pretty much a long BDSM scene with different acts. I liked it though:) It was short but long enough. I liked Dawson and Chip.

While collecting vast amounts of vintage gay pulp novels and mood rings, Sean whiles away the hours ...more
