Toby and Damon’s whirlwind romance continues, but can they find a balance between love and work? Do they even want to?

Toby can scarcely believe that his life has changed so much in less than two weeks, but it has. His predictable little life has gone from routine to sexually adventurous in a matter of days. And to be honest, he wouldn’t have it any other way.

Damon’s just a

It was good to see sculptor Toby and bar owner Damon again in this super-hot sequel to ‘Malting’. Toby has left “comfortable” and “predictable” so far behind that he has trouble recognizing himself sometimes. Damon delights in finding new ways to challenge Toby’s idea of what life should be like. Their romance is beginning to turn into a relationship, and while Damon can’t wait for them to get even closer, Toby is still adjusting to the idea of sharing all of his life with Damon. This second boo ...more

I bought this because I wanted to find out who the bad guy is. Did I? Um. No. But there were more plugs, more spankings, more Toby with his piercings (which I know I could barely touch my ear after a week, touch my bits and I'll kill you - but maybe that's me). More attacks by mystery guy and the introduction of Dom friend Patrick and ex-military sub Christian. More sex, more plugs, more drama with the stalker. Hmmm. Maybe this is the one where Toby is shot? They run together. ...more

This book is part of a series and should be read in order.

This books starts with a bang and they do not stop coming. This is definitely packed full with the sexy, sensual, and at times raunchy sex anyone who is a regular reader of Sean Michael will be familiar with. Along with the good humor and sometimes serious, it was a well written look at the continuing story of Toby and Damon. Their relationship is still evolving as they grow closer and their feelings for each other deepen.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

I really enjoy Damon and Toby's relationship. They explore sex and BDSM is such a fun, consensual way and it was obvious both men were getting their needs met.

We get more story in Milling that we had in the first book and I really particularly enjoyed the scene where we meet Patrick and Christian in Damon's bar. I'm keen to learn more about that couple.

Also worth mentioning is the divine scene in Toby's studio. I never knew

This story is a great continuation of Toby and Damon’s story. The two are a wonderful couple and are continuing to learn about each other and their emotions. A wrench is thrown into their fun when an intruder is found and all hell breaks loose. The men’s new found love will be tested and hopefully it will survive.

I enjoyed this visit with Toby and Damon. The two truly love each other. As they are enjoying their new relationship something comes along and tries to destroy it. I love Damon and his

I enjoyed Milling by Sean Michael more than I expected to thanks to the character of Toby. He is a sub, not a slave, and keeps Damon, his Dom, on his toes. The interplay between them is just plain fun and seemed very real to me. This being a Sean Michael book, the sex is scorching and frequent too. The villain from the first book in the series makes a reappearance in this book, so the book is not all lighthearted. Overall, a very fun read.

Book two is a continuation of the first book and we get to see them growing even closer. These two are so hot together. Damon knows exactly what his boy needs. We still don't know who the person that was responsible for the damages in the first book is and they are back in this book. I can't wait to find out who it is and why they are doing the things that they are doing. ...more

So great to read more about Damon and Toby. Toby still seems a little unsure of his needs but Damon is there to help him and give him what he needs! I really like how this relationship is working. They love each other and continue to build on that.

Wow, I'm not going to give away any spoilers. But this story was hot. A little kinky, light on the BDSM. Lots of laughter and love. Read book 1 first, it will help it all fall in place. I freaking love this series, can't wait for book 3. Please hurry Sean Michaels ...more

This is the second time I’ve read the Beer & Clay series. It’s classic Sean Michael. If you like sexy M/M BDSM with lots of sexy and not much plot this series fills the bill.

This is book two of the Beer and Clay series and has to be read in order.
I loved this book, the sex, the drama, the building of the relationship. What a great mix. We are still focused on Toby and Damon and the brand new relationship as well as the drama that just happened at the bar. Damon is still trying to get Toby out of his shell and it’s interesting to watch the process. We are also introduced to a couple of new characters that hopefully we’ll get their own books. The chemistry in and out

In book #2 is how Damon and Toby continue there relationship. They are trying to find that balance between work and being together. This also had a ton of hot sex scenes which are described very well. I would like to see a bit more storyline between them. I do hope that will be coming in book #3.

The second installment of Toby and Damon, and just as overdone as the first. They're hot for each other, to the point of obsession. And they're also obsessed with butt plugs all.the.time. Give Toby's poor ass a rest! Porn without plot, basically. ...more

Toby and Damon are settling in and finding what works for them. An attack leads to more to sort through. We get to see the strength of their feelings for each other. Also, can't wait to see more from the new couple we are introduced to. ...more

Often referred to as "Space Cowboy" and "Gangsta of Love" while still striving for the moniker of "Maurice," Sean Michael spends his days surfing, smutting, organizing his immense gourd collection and fantasizing about one day retiring on a small secluded island peopled entirely by horseshoe crabs. While collecting vast amounts of vintage gay pulp novels and mood rings, Sean whiles away the hours ...more
