As usual, Maggie Blackbird has given us characters that are both complex, relatable and loveable, with a storyline that is tightly written and enjoyable. This is a quick snippet, but one you'll absolutely adore! ...more

All Gavin wanted was Slade back for Christmas and if getting tied up was the way to do it - then tie him up.

Gavin wanted to be more than people thought he was - more than he thought he was. So he left the reservation, got an education, became a partner in a law firm, and ended up back at the reservation.

Slade had loved Gavin for who he was. When Gavin left he never looked back. Now Gavin wants to play games. Well he has a game for him and this time he is the one walking away.

I enjoyed reading this entertaining second-chance MM romance. Although it is a quick read, the plot is well-written & interesting. The characters are quite well-developed & previously had a relationship that ended when one of them (Gavin) left to further his career leaving the other one (Joseph) behind now Gavin is back & expresses regrets for his actions but is determined to get his man.
There is: drama, some intrigue, anger, vengeful feelings, devious plans, remorse, apologies, manipulations, l

Second chance + revenge

This was interesting to me partly because of its Ojibway setting and the author being a part of that community. The setting is not actually much of a factor in the story, though, because it is primarily erotica with some story. Well written, interesting characters with good chemistry, second chance + revenge sex storyline. Not very realistic IMHO, but a fun, sexy read.

Well written story. Two men who fell for each other years before. One stayed home and lives his life as a tribe member. The other left to become successful. Now he is back but it is not easy when the one he loves hates him, ignores him. But ... He never failed ... It is not time to change the fact. Well created characters. A native Americans background. Enjoyable read plus light BDSM.

Maggie Blackbird is a master of her craft. You could feel Slade's anger burning through the pages, and taste the bitterness of Gavin's regret. Filled with blue hot sex scenes sprinkled with a little humor and lots of snark, this short story is the perfect MM romance short to read during a break at work.

Highly recommended!

This is a second chance M/M short story for Joseph Slade Indian and Gavin Pemmican when Gavin comes back to the tribe as the new chief. A story of drama, remorse, apologies,some intrigue, anger, light BDSM, and two men finding their way back to each other. I am glad their story had a happy ending.

Gripping. Short and erotic. I loved it. You can't please everyone and sometimes feelings get hurt and there are regrets. But, sometimes you have to do what is best for you.

Gavin left town to go to college and persue a career in law. He left Slade behind and broke his heart. Now Gavin is back and all he wants for Christmas is Slade. And if he has to let Slade dominate him and tie him in ribbons, then so be it. I really wanted a bit more complete HEA...a proposal, a commitment ceremony.

When she’s not writing, she can be found pulling weeds in the flower beds, mowing the huge lawn, walking the Mals deep in the bush, teeing up a ball at the golf course, fishing in the boat for walleye, or sitting on the deck at her sister’s house, making more ...more
