Sweet story about an established couple looking to conquer a task together. After six years, Parker and Gaston have no doubts about their feeling for each other. Parker's worried that what Gaston wants is something he won't be able to give and the prospect of failure is a big hurdle.

Their journey features chastity, prostate milking and some fun loving spanking.

The second volume in this BDSM B&B series is just as deliciously naughty as the first. The focus is divided equally between Adam and Matt, the owners of the B&B, and Parker and Gaston, their two guests for a week. While I remembered Adam and Matt and felt as if I were visiting friends, Parker and Gaston are new characters. Both couples are very much in love, and while I got to see Parker and Gaston battling their "issue", I also had the opportunity to get to know Adam and Matt a little b ...more

This a pretty sweet story all things considered. Gaston and Parker have been in a relationship for six years. They love it other and their lives together. However there is something they have been trying to accomplish and not been able to. So they have come to the Briar Rose to get help and training from Matt and Adam.

One of the things I liked is that Adam is just as important to the training as Matt. Matt does not claim to know everything about being a Dom or techniques. He will defer to Adam w

Middle-of-the-road Michael fare

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

Rating: 6/10

PROS:
- Often in BDSM stories, the dominant characters are practically invincible. I like that Gaston not only has (perceived) failings as a Dom, but also is humble enough to seek help in getting past them.
- I liked seeing the characters navigate difficulties not just in their own relationships, but in those of their friends and acquaintances also.
- We get to see Matt and Adam truly

Original Review Published here: http://heartsonfirereviews.com/?p=25536


Controlling Parker is the second book in The Briar Rose series by Sean Michael. While this book is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. The characters from Sold by Sean Michael are back and better than ever. I enjoyed this first book in the series so when I heard about this book I was excited. I read this book in one sitting.

Matt and Adam are having a great time running thei

Possibly useful if you need a lesson on prostate milking.

I think I am just tired of Sean Michael’s same-old, same-old characters and their very typical dialogue. It’s like the repertoire contains exactly two characters, a dom and a sub, and they all talk alike, no matter which story we're talking about. In this book I doubt I could tell Gaston and Matt apart if they were not carefully labelled. Consequently I don’t remember Matt and Adam from their original novel, and can’t internally add to the

3.5 stars

So here's the thing - Sean Michael's Hammer Series and the off shoot series - The Briar Rose and Box of Nails are for me just books that I read regardless - and yep, some are really weak. This was an interesting addition to The Briar Rose series. Matt and Adam are now much more settled as guest house owners and a D/s couple set on helping their guests. In this case Dom Gaston and his sub Parker, who want help with a specific problem - namely to get Parker to come on vocal command withou

Gaston is a dominant and Parker is his sub. Parker knows they are going on vacation but doesn't know that Briar Rose Inn caters to BDSM couples. Gaston wants to work on a particular sexual issue that he and Parker are having. He tells Parker he loves him and if they can't get this one thing to work, they will still be a couple but he thinks the guys that run Briar Rose Inn (Matt and Adam) can help them. In fact, they do help them resolve their issue.

Working towards a goal

Gaston and Parker have a goal to work towards. They have come to the Briar Rose for help. Matt and Adam are there to lend a hand. We get to see both couples as they continue to grow in their relationships but other than one less they don't work together. Always fun to see happy committed couples making things even better.

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
