Kim Dare has taken me out of the Meh Abyss. I was sinking in crap reads.

Nothing like a little D/s in a office supply closet.

One of my fave authors, who writes D/s effortlessly, creates ultra hot scenes with a little creativity. I mean naked selfies? Who doesn't love that?

A shy sub who is enjoying life outside the closet, goes indie one to have a yummy scene with his Dom lover.

Butt plugs, thumb cuffs, a lil CBT...yum, yum, yum. :D

I had no intention of reading this. I saw a post come up in my feed, I clicked the link, read a few paragraphs of the excerpt and was sold. OMG I was so sold because how much hotter could it get than Danny sending his boyfriend dirty photos at work? Dirty progressive photos that lead to a kiss and then -

“Did you like taking those photos for me?”
“Yes, sir.”
“It made you blush.”
“Yes, sir.”
“It made you hard, too.” Jake fitted the cock-ring in place around the base of Danny’s shaft a

It's Jakes anniversary at work and his boyfriend, Danny, has a surprise for him in the supply closet and a mini BDSM kit in his pocket.

Very hot. I just gotta wonder, how deep are Danny's pockets?

Recommends it for: fans of workplace shenanigans
Every workplace should have a closet designated for just this sort of activity. For those days. And a napping place cuz everyone needs a nap sometimes.


The other activity would get me P-flagged undoubtedly. Just use your imagination.

Hard at Work is a short three chapters about Jake and Danny putting a supply closet to good use on Jake's work anniversary.

You may be asking yourself how do they get kinky at work in a supply closet?

I'll give you a hint.


Only pocket sized.

It was hard. It was fast. I

‘Hard at Work’ is a nice play on words and, as I expected from Kim Dare, has nothing at all to do with serious work. Well, other than the starting point, since Danny uses sort of a work related excuse to start the whole episode. The humor in this story is as unmistakable as the heat—I mean, who has ever heard of an erotic gay story that takes place entirely in the closet? Yes, I know it sounds strange, you’ll have to read it to see what I mean. I think it’s hilarious!

Jake is a nice guy. A Dom wh

NSFW (too bad...)

This is a short and sweet snapshot of a couple's anniversary celebration at work... and the need for a spacious supply closet when one is provoked by erotic selfies of one's boyfriend. Just enough detail to understand the dynamic between the pair, and, of course, a nice, hot scene to indulge in! Finestkind!

Teeny, tiny novella, and quite a hot one at that featuring a stationery cupboard, naughty pics on a phone, 1 hot Dom with an erection that won't disappear and his Sub, who's desperate for something....

Celebrating an Anniversary

Wow. What a way to celebrate an anniversary! Jake and Danny are very good together. They sure know how to make use of a closet. This is a very steamy, kinky and quick read.
